The Local Buzz

When you hear anyone talk about ramen, I'm sure the first thing you think of are the cellophane packages that got you through college. But the real deal is actually a dish of complexity, subtlety and skill. (To become a ramen chef in Japan typically takes five years.) Imagine my delight when the Rehoboth Foodie announced we were getting our very own noodle shop right here at the beach, in the Safeway shopping center. Can't wait.

Another restaurant just moments from opening is Rosenfeld's Rehoboth location (across from the new Royal Farms). The sign is up on the building and the photos on Facebook look amazing. Love the artwork by a local artist who happens to be a Hirschfeld impressionist. Ocean City fans will be pleased to know that Rosenfeld's just renewed the lease on their O.C. location for another five years.

 April 22 is Record Store Day and you can celebrate locally at our go-to purveyor of vinyl, Gidget's Gadgets. There are albums that are only being released to record stores that day, so when you see the line outside the store, you'll know why. Dogfish owner, Sam Calagione, will do a meet and greet at the store to promote the latest DFH vinyl release, Music to Drink Beer To - 3rd Edition. (Did you know vinyl records are projected to sell 40 million units in 2017??!! Forbes)

 Speaking of Dogfish, their zoomy new building in downtown Reho will be open by Memorial Day! This older article from Brewbound shows a drawing of the restaurant campus.

7 Features That Will Sell Your Home Faster


Homeowners are sometimes hesitant to upgrade when it's time to sell. After all, you won't be living there much longer, and home remodeling efforts only increase home values by 64% of the average project’s costs, according to Remodeling magazine’s 2016 Cost vs. Value report.

But think again, sellers. The cost of inaction can be far greater than the small loss you’ll incur on any home-improvement projects. "It can mean the difference between getting multiple bids at once and driving up the selling price, or getting no offers," says Brian Lewis, a real estate broker with Halstead Property, a New York City-based realty firm. As your house lingers on the market, you'll likely pay ongoing mortgage, maintenance and staging costs.

To make the most of your remodeling budget, focus on features that most home buyers really want to see. Updated for 2016, our slide show reveals home features sought by at least 80% of buyers these days.
