What’s Happening #inWilm: New Year New Things To Do

Bye 2018, hello 2019! It is the new year and that means more exciting things to do not only in Delaware but also in Wilmington. Check out some of what is to come this year:

DE.CO Food Hall Opening

While we are not entirely clear when the new restaurant will be open, we are sure it will be the talk of the town. With 12,000-square-feet of space with the ability to seat 250, and complete with eight different kitchens are expected (plus a bar!) this eatery should be buzzing during the downtown lunch rush and after work happy hour.

76’ers Field House Opening

Can’t wait to see the Delaware Blue Coats (The 76er’s G league team) play at home? Neither can we! The team’s first game in the new $30 million field house is set for January 23rd.

Wilmington is home to the late artist, Edward Loper, Sr. His son, Edward Loper Jr, followed his father’s footsteps into the world of art. Beginning late March, you can view the artist’s work at the Delaware Art Museum.
