Awesome Feast!

Our first Crab Feast this past Saturday was awesome! We had perfect weather for sitting outside, the live music created a relaxed vibe, and the crabs (smaller than we expected for #1s) were plentiful. The event sold out by Friday and we are grateful that so many people were able to come out and make the event so much fun!

We are tossing around ideas for another crab feast using JUMBO crabs and even a lobster boil! Stay tuned for more details on those…

THIS FRIDAY, August 26th, Kurt Houff and Friends will be in the lounge playing live music from 7-10 pm.

THIS SATURDAY, August 27th, is the Delaware Burger Battle. This hugely attended event (800+ tickets have been sold) supports the Ministry of Caring and is a friendly competition for the best burger among Delaware restaurants. Tonic will be there and chef Patrick is entering a very creative and tasty burger that’s sure to receive a lot of attention. Be sure to support Tonic Bar and Grille and vote for our burger!
