Rehoboth Beach Hospitality Group Announces New Project/Second Block Hospitality Group to open new restaurant Drift

REHOBOTH BEACH, De. (September 15, 2021) – Local restaurateurs and owners of The Pines and award-winning Chef, Lion Gardner have teamed up to create Second Block Hospitality Group. A development and hospitality company focused on bringing new and exciting establishments to Rehoboth Beach. Their first venture, Drift will be a raw bar & dining room on Baltimore Ave. The new project, which is already underway, is a massive restoration designed to transform the existing building, originally built in 1890 and used as a camp meeting house, into a modern structure, but with all the historical charm adding to the allure of Baltimore Ave.

“We could not be more excited to be breaking ground on another passion project,” said Drift Owner, Bob Suppies. “Coming through the last year brought many new challenges to our industry, but we were able to get very creative and grow as a company, so this new venture is very exciting for us.”

Slated to open sometime in early 2022, things are in full swing for the new restaurant owners, including menu planning. “Drift will be a true raw bar focusing on the art of raw seafood and not just oysters, along with traditionally prepared dishes influenced by the sea. From a beverage standpoint we will feature craft cocktails and eccentric wine and beer offerings,” said Drift Owner, Tyler Townsend. “Think small and intimate, rustic and classic, yet casual with a focus on culinary inventiveness and creative spaces.”

Drift restaurant will feature a refined design of open airy spaces and lots of glass for open vantage points with an indoor/outdoor bar area and intimate back patio. Expect a personalized experience with all the flair and trimmings of Rehoboth Beach, brought to you by the owners of The Pines and Chef Lion Gardner.

Revelation, Hudson Fields continue Thankful Thursdays-Summer 2021
   Revelation Craft Brewing Company and Hudson Fields have collaborated for a new community-focused event called Thankful Thursdays, which will support more than 20 nonprofits this summer season.
    Many nonprofit organizations canceled fundraising events last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thankful Thursdays aims to provide support for these organizations, while also providing a family-fun atmosphere filled with good food, great brews and local music.
   “We want to help give back and provide this wonderful outdoor space for nonprofits to have the opportunity to raise money for their organizations,” said Kyle Shaffer, marketing and sales manager, Revelation Craft Brewing. “Our goal is to help these organizations and raise money in an outdoor space where people and their families can come together and have fun and feel safe.”
    Christian and Julie Hudson and Revelation have partnered for the last two years on Fridays and Saturdays by having a beer garden at the hangar at Hudson Fields. Proceeds and beer sales benefited Beebe Medical Foundation, which recently received a check for more than $4,000.
    The recent fundraising event for injured Cape Henlopen High School student Gavin Birl raised more than $130,000 to help with his medical bills.
    “This is what Revelation is all about – we’re a family- and community-oriented organization. Beer is our passion, but without this community, it wouldn’t be possible. We’re so happy to continue this partnership at Hudson Fields,” said Patrick Staggs, founder and brewmaster of Revelation.
    To learn more about participating in Thankful Thursdays or to help give back to the community, contact Kyle Shaffer at 302-233-2076 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Rehoboth Beach Historical Society Walking Tours are Back!!
   The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society kicks off its Walking Tours on June 2, 2021 starting at 10 a.m. at the bandstand. After a one-year hiatus due to (COVID) restrictions our historical tour guide, Jean Brolund, is back and ready to take you on a tour of downtown Rehoboth Beach from the bandstand on main street of town throughout the boardwalk and side streets. Jean has been doing these tours for the Rehoboth Beach Museum for over 5years. She combines her knowledge of the ever-changing history of Rehoboth Beach with her personal memories. Jean summered in Rehoboth Beach beginning in 1958 and lived in a tent house during that time. After she moved to the area permanently in 2012, she joined the Museum and supplemented her personal knowledge from our archives.
   This historical tour provides general information about the history of Rehoboth Beach and the changing streetscape of buildings over the years, both businesses and residential. Ms. Brolund will lead walkers from the bandstand along Rehoboth Avenue, pointing out landmarks and providing photos of historical sites and events. While touching on several of the storms that have shaped the coastline and the beachfront in town other topics covered will be the Native peoples of the area, The Methodist Camp Meetings, Hotels and Railroad service, and Horn’s Pavilion.
   Other topics on the tour may include shipwrecks, naming ships such as the Falmouth, the Merrimac, the Severn and the SS Thomas Tracy, the railroad, the Belhaven Hotel, restaurants such as the Robert Lee, Snyder’s and, of course, Funland.
The tour is a gentle 2 hour stroll around downtown Rehoboth Beach. Tour participants are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water or fill up a water bottle at the historic Women’s Christian Temperance Union Fountain on the boardwalk; one of the landmarks mentioned on the tour. There are restrooms available at the bandstand area.
    The cost of the tour is $10 cash, given to the tour guide. We are suggesting bubble tours of family/groups of between 5-10 people. Call the Rehoboth Beach Museum at 302-227-7310 to make a reservation. Ms. Brolund is also willing to give private tours with a minimum of 6 people. These private tours can be booked through the museum.
The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society promotes education about the history of Rehoboth Beach and operates the Rehoboth Beach Museum. Memberships are available. For more information please go to www.rehobothbeachmuseum.org.
