The House of William and Merry

If you’re looking to expand your pallet a bit The House of William and Merry is the place to do it.  Last week I stopped in there and had three items that I had never had before.  They were all knock out good.  What were they you say, well how about Marlin, Octopus, and Foie gras or duck liver.  Yeah, when you were like, “MMM whats that a pick of” that was the duck liver featured above.  All three dishes were amazing.  The portions were smaller but the flavor was huge.  William and Merry are a husband and wife duo that is making amazing food in Delaware.   I don’t know how I have never been there before, but I will definitely be making a trip back in the near future.  They racking in awards, and I am sure their Zagat rating will only continue to climb.  Thanks for sharing your amazing food with the world.  I could go on and on about the experience that night but in reality, you just need to get up there and try it for your self.

Frankie “THE FREAK” Paul

I will tell you the tale of a man who is a legend, mainly in his own mind, but his growing popularity is that of an active volcano, we are all waiting for it to erupt.  His claim to fame seems to come from lies and wise tales yet many have been there to either witness or be implicated in one of his acts.  His mind wonders a bit and he doesn’t sit still much, or he sits still too much it’s kinda weird to explain.  Either way this man has gone by many names, Stephen, Stephano, The Aquatic Giant, TAL, T, Frankie, SLAM, and the finally the Freak.  He rarely matches his clothes which adds to the oddity of his character.  He may be wearing a black fur with red shorts, or plaid pants with an off-color V-neck.  It doesn’t make sense nor should it.  He is more cartoon character than real human.  Most stories start with, “hey remember that time he did this or did that”.  You all laugh and the new guy says “No Fucking Way.”  You chuckle, shake your head and walk away, he doesn’t know any better.  Recently the Freak added small but new accolades to his growing resume of I can’t believe he is doing that tasks.  He was in an independent short  film, is a professional boxer (March 24th), had a beer named after his alter ego ” The Selfie King of Delaware”,  and now has made it to competitive eater.  The Freak will be participating in Wing Bowl on February 2nd.Continue Reading
