1.  We heard you loud and clear. If you’re like us and can’t wait for Bear Weekend to begin, join us before the official Kick Off at Mariachi Restaurant for a Pre-Weekend Dinner. Yolanda has reserved the entire second floor just for us including the outdoor dining area. Dinner will be buffet style including masitas (Cuban) chips with salsa, sour cream and guacamole. The main entrée features papusa, chicken casserole, plantains and rice & beans.  We’ll finish dinner with the chef’s special dessert. This dinner is an add on and not included with your Full Weekend Pass. Tickets can be purchased now at $25 and includes non-alcoholic drinks. Happy Hour pricing is available for beer, wine, margaritas, and sangrias.


2. We’ve invited back last year’s Master of Ceremonies,  Joe Thomas. Joe did such a great job all weekend long it just wouldn’t be the same without him. As you probably remember Joe is a comedian and author of Fasten Your Seatbelts and Eat Your F*cking Nuts. Well he has been very busy since last September, writing another book titled Flight Attendant Joe and he is currently writing a pilot for a sitcom.

Join us at the Meet & Greet cocktail reception at 7:00 pm on Thursday at CAMP Rehoboth. Hors d’oeuvres will be provided courtesy of our sponsoring restaurants. This event is included with your Full Weekend Pass or $25 through à la carte online registration or $30 at the door. Two complimentary drink tickets will be offered. 

  3. Join us for Bear Bingo (free to play) at The Pines Rehoboth Beach located towards the end of Baltimore Avenue. The fun starts at 9:30pm Thursday night with everyone’s favorite flight attendant, Joe Thomas.  Then stick around for tunes and shake your groove thing till the early morn. This is an open invitation event.
  4.  Beginning at 10:00am on Friday meet us in front of the Atlantic Sands on Rehoboth Beach.  Nothing fancy. Put your toes in the sand and swim in the ocean.  Look for the bear flags. This is an open invitation event. 


5.After the sun and sand head to Blue Moon for Happy Hour beginning at 3:00pm! A staple in Rehoboth Beach for over 35 years, the Blue Moon combines fine dining on one side and a lively cabaret bar on the other side. Reservations are usually needed for dinner or Sunday Brunch.
