Lupe was celebrating her 49th Birtday this month (and please do sat say "Again?!!").
So Lupe and the General decided to do a layover in Rehoboth Beach last weekend. (Lupe loves layovers). Stopped at a cute little bar Called the Blue Moon. The General likes to have one or three Manhattans before dinner (truth be told, so does Lupe). Well it is a tres amusing place with some hefty boys wearing makeup and ladies garments, and we got chatting with a cute atheletic boy in a very tight turquoise sleeveless t shirt and even tighter clam diggers (Lupe told him he was pushing the season a tad, but he laughed and told us it was the only clean pants he had. (Mon Dieu!). The General found him delightful (truth be told, so did Lupe). So we asked him where we should dine and the sweet thing recommended Henlopen City Oyster House and we invited him to join us which he did. He said he hadnt had enough protein for a few days and that he loved oysters. Well, needless to say so do Lupe and the General. (Lupe personally believes that what they say about oysters is true. Heaven knows they always act like a tonic on the General). And the bartender makes perfect Bombay Gin Martinis up and they so very much complimented the succulent oysters served at Henlopen Oyster House. I dont remember how many dozen we had (oysters i mean), but that night but Lupe can assure you that we all had our share of protein. Then we all had the Mussels. Lupe and the General LOVE mussels. Eddie (I believe that was our servers name) was knowledgeable, friendly, and he didnt rush us for a moment. We each then had a different piece of fish that was as perfectly cooked and delish as Lupe has had...even in Cabo. Lupe's only criticism is that the decor is a little sparse. More Louis and less warehouse would warm things up a tad. But Lupe and the General will return to Henlopen City Oyster House again! A perfect restaurant! Our young friend then escorted us to a lovely establishment called the LL for more cocktails. My goodness, Lupe was reminded of a few clubs in Berlin, Paris, and Amsterdam in the good old days.
