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 “Frankie “THE FREAK” Paul”
Holy Shit I had a lot of drinks this week. From Orange crushes, Jameson and Ginger, to St. Bernarbus Wit, and Brother Thelonious. A battle of the holy beers, with St. Bernarbus Wit easily coming out on top. That was a damn good beer. I’ll try to list all of them in some order but there is a good chance I am going to screw this post up. The biggest reason is that I am drinking now so we will just go with whatever my fat ass hands can type.
I came into this week having picked up two beers that I would try but being on vacation I clearly have had far more than that. Shock Top and Cage Radler have been my go to beers so far. Two easy drinking summer beers. These are the guys I would knock down while relaxing on the screened in porch here at the rental just talking about how relaxing this is and that we will make it an annual tradition.
Brother Thelonious and St. Bernarbus we two very different beers with the St. Bernarbus coming out on top. This was a sweet beer and I think that it just fit in a bit better for the setting I was in. I don’t match my beers with my food but with the good times I am having. Summer brings out more of the sweeter beers like the Wits. So in good fashion I will be picking this one up again. I highly suggest it ro all.
Enjoying Dewey is easy all you have to do is show up and a party is going to break out. Each turn you take there is a place that is offering great drinks and great times. This week there have been five places that I have enjoyed and I think you will all enjoy them as well.
#1. This is a no brainer and most reading this are going to say no shit but The Starboard is one of the greatest bars ever created by the beach gods. I don’t believe this was built by man it is to mythical and to amazing to have been the creation of a mere mortal.
#2. Listen if you want to relax, people watch, and enjoy some amazing beers you have to stop into the Dewey Beer Company. I had three beers from there and bought up some swag, the buzz forced me to do it. The beers in ranking order from Dewey Beer Company would be #1 Citra Wit #2 Social Kolsch #3 Summer Saison. All awesome beers.
#4 Surf Side Bar is a great pit stop for some good drinks and fun times. On a walk from Dewey Town Hall I popped in just to grab a Sam’s Summer Ale to take the heat off. They look small from the outside but the bar is deep and the good times are even deeper.
#5 Paradise Grill is off the charts fun. Look this place is huge, has the best atmosphere for the family. This place is bayside so it will either take a bit of a drive to get there, or my preferred method a night boat trip where you can dock at the place. They have plenty of beers decent food and some good bands that play.
This week is slowing down and we are preparing to head into week #2 of this vacation. Sunday you can catch me day drinking at the The Star Board stop in grab a selfie and a beer.

Who had a great week this week, THIS GUY!!! It is hard for me to complain about any week that I have. It’s not that I am doing anything crazy I, believe that I really only hold onto the positives and ignore the negatives of things that happen. The work week was short coming off of the holiday weekend that also was excellent. Tuesday Night we sat and watch fire works from DP’s backyard. We cooked out and relaxed and enjoyed the night. Middletown put on a great fire works display. The three days of work went quickly and rolled right into another great Saturday.
Saturday brought us another great day on the beach where we hung out with some great people and even got to meet some new ones. It is great to go to the drive on beach and fish, drink, and cookout. The kids all get together and dig for sand crabs, catch jelly fish, and just have a blast. My youngest couldn’t stop singing Moana Songs and playing in the waves.
The group was close to 25 deep not inlcuding the kids. There was cornhole, fishing, laughs, good times, and everything else that comes with a day on the beach. I was throwing down some Cage Radler Victory Beers that just made everything better. The best is that we all agree to do so many things with each other that we know only about 2% of it will happen. You know we agree to by boats, and beach houses, and party like this all the time.
The best is when it’s time to pack up. Oh the fight that this has become. The kids and the wife never want to leave. Deep down neither do I, problem is that I know I have to drive home. F me right. So there I am the bad guy for having to pack up and make us go. Trust me my inner child crying an ocean of tears. Once off the beach it was time to hit up WAWA grabs drinks and sandwiches for the long haul home. I weep the whole way back. Once home it is tubbies for everyone, one last drink on the deck, and night night time.
Sunday we went to Cantwells Tavern for brunch. The is a great place within a historic town. The brunch is awesome there and the Bloody Mary Bar is excellent. Following that it is off to the community pool for sun and fun. I would much rather be a the beach though.
I am convinced now that I want to get a place at the beach. Nothing to extravagant just somewhere that I can lay my head down and the kids will have fun hanging out with other kids. I hate having to drive back an hour from the beach. Hour down and an hour back kinda sucks. I think we will start looking this fall for something in the future. If anyone has any recommendations let me know.
