It's All About You
Celebrate Mom and Mother's Day in Historic Downtown Lewes this year on Sunday May 8th, with any number of great activities, shopping or restaurants- after all, mom gives you her best and we'd like to help you give back by giving you some of the best we have to offer.
If Mom's hungry, consider taking her to Jerry's Seafood @ 108 Second Street in the Downtown Lewes Shopping District. One of Lewes' premeir seafood restaurants, this year, they have a fabulous brunch planned and it'll have everything from built to order omletes, prime rib and salmon, to oysters on the half and peel your own shrimp.
In the mood for something more traditional? Look no further than The Buttery Restaurant, also on Second Street in Downtown Lewes, at 102 to be exact. Famous for among many things, their spectacular Sunday Brunch, if you've never been to it, now's the perfect time. Mom will love it! From fresh baked pastriesand Mimosas and Bloody Mary's to Petit Filte Mignon or a fantastic Eggs Benedict, everything is good.
Just in the mood to munch or maybe take mom out for a bit of coffee and pastries during her shopping excursion, try Notting Hill Coffee. Not only do they make all their own pastries, soups and breads fresh daily in house, but they hand select their own coffee, then grind and roast it right on site. The smells there are unbelievable and the coffee unbelievably good.
Speaking of shopping, Blooming Boutique is helping celebrate Mother's Day with an extrordinary sale on their popualr line of Chamilia Beads. Considered modern day charm bracelets, Chamilia beads are beautiful and intricately crafted colored glass, silver and gold beads that can be mixed to match mom's mood or to mark milestones in her life. Blooming Boutique is located at 107 Second Street, also on Second Street just across from The Buttery.
And, if your mom is a kid at heart, be sure to take her to Kids' Ketch located at 132nd Second Street. A toy store probably unlike any you've encountered, Kids' Ketch has an eclectic array of toys, games, puzzles and more for kids of all ages. Especially interesting is their line up of vintage toy replicas, reminders of simpler days, pride in craftmanship and timelss fun.
Of course, not all events, activities and fun things to do have to happen exactly on Mother's Day. For example, there'll ne a Lewes Merchants Spring Sidewalk sale going on all weekend long from Friday, May 6th through Sunday May 8th. It'll showcase some of the the best deals on the most beautiful items Lewes' Merchants have to offer so whether you're looking for something special for mom or she's looking for that special something herself, there's a good chance you'll find it in Lewes.
If she likes to garden, mom will probably like the Lewes in Bloom's perennial plant sale. Located at 2nd and bank Streets right in front of Citizen's Bank, it's a place to pick up flowers, soil and planting aids of all kinds.
Last on our list but as they say, certainly not least is The Blessing of The Fleet, the local maritime celebration dedicated to wishing our mariners safe sea passage, bountiful harvests and to honor those, their crew and the shipd that can no longer sail. You can get a great view of it all from any number of locations around Lewes from the top of the Lewes-Rehbooth Canal Drawbridge to the decks of the Fisherman's Wharf to the city's public docks and parks right on front Street.
