Ocean City Eats! Liquid Assets, Bistro, Bar, Ocean City, Maryland, L.A. On Location, Catering, Best Pan Roasted Mussels Ever!!


Opening 2016 with a visit to Liquid Assets in Ocean City, Maryland with my friend, Shelley.  Crowded?  You bet! It was a beautiful week-end at the Maryland and Delaware Beaches.  Liquid Assets is located at 9301 Coastal Highway in Ocean City, Maryland.  Tel. 410-524-7037.  Website?


Liquid Assets is a Bar, a Bistro, and a Package Goods Store.  They are open every day of the week…Sunday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to Midnight.  Plenty of parking available.

The only seats available were at the Kitchen Bar in the second dining room.  This was new for us.  We could see some of the preparations going on.  I have never sat in this room and to tell you the truth the idea of a kitchen bar is pretty unique just like everything they do.


Coming out of this Kitchen Bar were delicious looking Tuna Crisps…rare ahi, crispy wontons, Kimchee, seaweed salad and wasabi cream.

We ordered the Salted Roasted Beets and Caramelized Pear Salad with Point Reyes blue cheese and coriander dusted pepitas.  The cheese melted in your mouth and I always order beets when found on the menu.


My friend, Shelley, loves their Caesar Salad…but she will deconstruct the salad….Topped with grilled chicken.  Knew she was going to have it.  Did not even have to look at the menu.


From the first time I tasted Liquid Assets’ Pan Roasted Mussels, I have tried them in other restaurants, others states; everywhere.  The best EVER are here at Liquid Assets.  Plenty of mussels with chorizo, shallots, garlic and grilled bread.  A spoon will be also given to you because you will not resist the broth.  They are truly awesome!!  I have them every time.


Then an order of their Massaged Kale Salad with Burgarian feta, roasted cauliflower, pickled shallots, Serrano ham crisps, crispy leeks, roasted garlic and lemon vin.  Topped with a Bristro Steak cooked and seasoned to perfection.


I will have this Sweet Ending one of these days….we looked at it coming out of the Kitchen Bar and it looked soooo good!  It is their unique Ice Cream Sandwich…House Made Doughnut with God Bless The Queen Chesapeake Bay Farms ice cream, and a bourbon caramel sea salt sauce.  Please note that the doughnuts will be warm!!  Seriously decadent.


Liquid Assets can custom build menus for your affair, no matter what size.  They bring it to your location.  And it is not just food.  They have professional servers, bartenders, china, silver, linens, tables and chairs.  You may call 410-524-7037. Fax number is 410-524-3308.  Email


The ride is manageable from the Delaware Beaches so get out and enjoy Liquid Assets for lunch or dinner.  Check out the above mentioned website because throughout the year they have plenty of events.

Have a good One!!

Destination? Sunfest, Ocean City, Maryland, Fall Festival, The Second Season, Arts, Crafts, Live Entertainment, Maryland Beaches


Opening Day for Sunfest in Ocean City, Maryland was Thursday, September 24, 2015.  It is ranked the number one arts and crafts festival in the nation!!  It was filled with crafts, arts, food and entertainment.  Everything for the whole family to enjoy.


Walking on the award-winning boardwalk the visitors were enjoying a beautiful day at the beach.


Passing the ever popular Thrasher’s French Fries, already the line was so long.  To tell you the truth I am not such a big fan of them because I like my fries crispy.



Hundreds and hundreds of people were checking out this first day of Sunfest.  Apparently, the weather might be a little crazy on Saturday evening, so if you get a change today and tomorrow, please stop by.


The tent we were looking for was the Food Tent and we immediately found it.


One food vendor after another.  If you have been at Sunfest before you probably have your favorites.



You can sit down in the many tables available or just stand and use the tall tables as well.


Funnel Cakes anyone?


We decided on some Seafood Bisque with Lace chips!! Perfect combination.  They were so light.



Ross decided on pulled chicken and regular just made chips.



Sunfest will be opening Friday and Saturday from 10 1.m. until 10 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 .am. until 6 p.m.  During the day you can enjoy the live entertainment completely free, either in their open air venue or inside the tent.  In the evening the live entertainment is by ticket holder.  Depending on the entertainer you tickets could be as low as $15 to $60.  Please visit


Stop Mr. Elvis himself, local color in Ocean City for many years.  Known to all the residents.  Take a photo.  He loves it!!

Some of the crafts that caught our attention:

Wire Sculpture by Devin Mack of Drawn Metal Studios.


The lady that works with clay.  She has been at the festival for years.  You can see her working the clay with such minute detail.



The driftwood sailboats and ships were really cute.  The company is Art Sea., from Pasadena, Maryland.


The painted ostrich eggs were very detailed.  Loved Starry Nights.


This next company’s baking is not your usual.  It looked so real, you could taste it…The Fake Baker.




The beautiful Adirondack Chairs, Hinkleys Chair Art….whatever you want, they will paint it.



Grabbing beers and on our way to listen to Skinny Leg Pete.  Definitely a party band.  Their genre?  soul, funk, blues and rock.  And, yes, people were dancing.




And then followed by Teenage Rust on the outdoor stage.


Thanks Cindi for inviting me…It was a great time with a BFF.

Have a great week-end!!

Rehoboth Beach

Rehoboth Beach

Gates have opened and visitors have been arriving since Thursday evening.  A beautiful day in Delmarva with blue skies, slightly cool temperatures, and no humidity….So perfect and hard to believe that there is no rain in the forecast for Memorial Day!!

Boardwalks are the center of the coastal towns of Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach and Ocean City, Maryland.  Early in the a.m. joggers, bikers, walkers….pooches too, are seen enjoying glorious days at the beach.

Hard to believe that the 3 mile long Ocean City Boardwalk, was once rolled up and stored under porches during high tide.  Please visit

Ocean City

Ocean City

Stop by Dolles for some amazing Sea Salt fudge…love it…among other sweet sensations.  Every morsel is made in-house.


Summer in Bethany Beach, Delaware, revolves around the Boardwalk.  This boardwalk is not as long as the other two, but offers so much to its visitors….entertainment or just the fact that you can take a seat on those iconic benches and look out to the Atlantic Ocean.  Please visit



Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, is also known as The Nation’s Summer Capital.  The award-winning Boardwalk is a mile long.  Just make sure that when you get to the end on both sides of the boardwalk you touch the railing….it’s a local’s thing.  The entertainment begins on the Boardwalk every week.  Check



Lucky for the coastal towns that do have boardwalks.  They are successful commercial districts and tourist attractions for the whole family.

After a rainy week, the week-end looks like it is going to be beautiful.  I think that when visitors come to Ocean City, Maryland the first thing they have in mind is the beach and where can they stay.


The Executive Motel is opening up today, Friday, 5/2, for Summer 2014.  It is located on 3001 North Baltimore Avenue in Ocean City (30th street).  It is a jump and a skip away from O.C.’s sandy, wide beach.  So close to amusements and restaurants.  Tel. 410-289-3101, 1-800-638-1600.  Website?


The Executive Motel is immaculate, run by the same family for many years. It is very reasonably priced and the perfect get-away for the week-end or the week.  Spend the day at the beach and then jump in the pool to refresh.

Liquid Assets, Ocean City, Maryland, Restaurant, Liquour Store, Full Bar, Review, Best Pan Roasted Mussels!! Ocean City Restaurant Week, Sunday, 10/13 – Sunday, 10/27!! One Price, 2 Weeks!


The beginning of a Nor’ Easter, along the Mid Atlantic Seaboard, did not deter Jody and I from driving from Rehoboth Beach to Ocean City, Maryland.  Along the way we picked one of my usual suspects in Bethany Beach, who is always ready to come along for a dining experience.  But, wait a minute…it was Debbie’s birthday!!


Rain, wind, and not too many on the road…we made it to Liquid Assets located mid town, at 9301 Coastal Highway, in Ocean City, Maryland.  Tel 410-524-7037.  Website?  There is no other restaurant up and down the Delaware and Maryland beaches that compare to Liquid Assets.  It is a package goods store, a bar, a restaurant….serving delicious food.  Sit among the bottles of wines or choose a more quiet ambiance in their separate dining room.  We sat among the sofas, and the bottles of liquour.


It was our evening and chatting away we began our dining experience with a beautiful presentation of a cheese board.  Midnight Moon, Goat Cheese, and Gouda were our choices.


It is that time of the year when pumpkins are in every recipe.  They are also in drinks….The Great Pumkin’ Martini at Liquid Assets looked so gorgeous.  A sip of it told me that it could go down very smoothly.  It had Spice Liqueur, Fireball Whiskey, Cream, and 43.


A few small plates of scallops.


The roasted veggies were a hit!!


The beets had a wonderful flavor!


The best Pan Roasted Mussels Bar None!!  Chorizo Sausage, Shallots, Garlic & Grilled Bread!!  How yummy is that? I can attest to this because ever since I had them at Liquid Assets, I have tried mussels at every restaurant.  I have been wanting to see if they measured up to Liquid Assets’.  I have found good ones, but not amazing ones!!  It is one of my favorite dishes and once again I requested a spoon so I could finish the broth!!  Look how gorgeous they looked.


Dessert was a Flourless Chocolate Brownie, topped with vanilla bean ice cream and creamy chocolate sauce…..This dessert was Gluten Free!!  Dense brownie full of flavor.


Note:  Ocean City’s Restaurant Week starts on Sunday 10/13 until Sunday 10/27.   One price, 2 weeks!!  Check participating restaurants, menus, and info. at

Have a Good One!!
