Spudly Do-Right

Good food, good beer and good causes? Win-win-win!

    Welcome to Home Skillet, a dining events blog deemed illegal by a federal appeals court. Here’s what we have for this week:

    Thursday, August 27: If you could somehow combine throwing back massive amounts of Harp with helping out a good cause, you’d jump at the opportunity, right?
    Well it just so happens that by attending Happy Hour at Catherine Rooney’s Thursday, you can benefit United Cerebral Palsy and have an awesome time.
    From 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. head to Rooney’s for a live performance by cover band The Phobiacs, complimentary rounds of appetizers and the chance to walk home with raffle prizes like wine for a month from Frank’s Union Mart, a membership for two to the Hockessin Athletic Club, plus two personal training sessions each (a $400 value), and 16 tickets for Phillies luxury suite (a $1,500 value). Meanwhile, all bar tips and signature drink proceeds will be donated to United Cerebral Palsy.
    A $10 cover charge gets you all this, plus probably some soccer on TV.

    Saturday, August 29: Unless you’re packing some otherwordly baby-back ribs, a barbecue is usually just a barbecue. The Children’s Beach House Beach Barbecue, on the other hand, is way more than just a ‘cue.
    The seventh annual Beach Barbecue, which benefits the Lewes Children’s Beach House commences Saturday, with food, fun and a killer auction.
    The theme this year is “Under the Sea,” and the Beach House is doing it up right with a proper clambake. Expect clams, lobster and shrimp, as well as beef tenderloin, passed hors d’oeuvres, corn on the cob and summery desserts like shortcake.
    $85 gets you in the door, and hey, shoes are optional.
    Organizers are really amped about the event’s auction. Thirteen 30-by-30-by-30 shaker tables, each one individually designed and decorated by a local artist, are up for bid. See them here.
    Our own Senator Ted Kaufman and his wife Lynne will be in attendance to help the Beach House rock its annual soiree. All proceeds go toward its valuable children’s programs. Visit www.cbhinc.org for more.
