  • Relive the college days at Stone Balloon Ale House’s Mug Night in Newark.
  • Fill up your growler at Peco’s Liquors in Wilmington with their $2 off discount every Thursday.
  • Grab a three-course dinner at Chelsea Tavern or Ernest & Scott for Wilmington City Restaurant Week for only $35.
  • April 7 is the opening day for the Blue Rocks and also the first Beer :30 of the season. Every Thursday night game from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the Dogfish Deck in the first base picnic area, fans will be able to take advantage of special discounts on Dogfish Head craft beers, wine and food.
