I'm leaving for Wildwood this morning to stay at the Fleur de Lis until Monday and the weather looks like it will be very nice!  Smiley

Yes, looking nicer the closer it gets. Highs in the mid-70's, lows in the 60's, doesn't get rain or cooler until Monday. Looking better and better.

 
been looking at the forecast for the past week..my wife says "don't get excited, they all change that far out"... well, it hasn't!!!
Even if the rain for Monday backs in 12 hours early, most of Sunday is still good... The island should be rockin starting on Thursday..

I noticed when I was walking around down there last night that the Chiarellas are doing dinner in the Sand Castle's restaurant now. Not cheap either. I was surprised they set up shop there because the motel itself looks kind of …raffish shall we say? Though I might quite like their rooms. According to an employee who greeted me while I was standing there reading the menu, they started that operation three years ago (at the beginning of my WW "dark period" I guess Smiley ).


Gia.  Excellent food in my experience there.

 
Yes, and be sure to note that they are not the same as "Gioia", which very clearly tries to capitalize on the Gia name, and relatively similar location. If I recall, Gia has moved deep into WWC.

How about the Sag pants that Wildwood does not allow( I love those "Pull up your pants" signs! Cheesy). Now there was a fashion statement Huh...grown men walking around with their pants down and their underwear sticking out! Angry


This George Carlin footage sort of applies.  Don't watch if offended by what some consider "bad" language:

If they're offended by low pants, they're probably offended by Carlin's language.

Thank you for these links.  I have tried most of them and have not found anything.  I will reach out to Memoreys but I believe they also have specific venues that require specific caterers, so not sure they will be able to accommodate.  
 
Really hoping to find someone local who may know of a secret hidden gem Smiley.
