Why do people love Cape May so much? I could rattle off a bunch of things, but let me just say this: it’s during the holiday season that you really begin to appreciate this little town. It’s a shore town, but in December it becomes a truly Victorian wonderland.
There’s also quite a bit of good eating and drinking to be enjoyed.
Let’s start off with the Kick Off the Holiday Season dinner at The Mad Batter on Dec. 9. It’s a five-course meal with a special wine pairing with each course. The cost is $75 a person.
Cape May Winery is a busy place during the holidays. They hold regular Cellar Tour and Tastings in December for $20 a person. The winery is also part of the Cape May Wine Weekend in December, and sparkling wine is the theme.
Other area wineries are active during the holiday season. Hawk Haven and Natali will be your stops on the Cape May Wine Trail taking place on Dec. 30.
For you food enthusiasts out there, the holidays in Cape May also bring another edition of their very popular Chefs’ Dine Around event. The dine around is $125 a person, and seating is very limited – so don’t wait!
For the kiddies, how about breakfast with The Big Guy? The Inn of Cape May has that for you on Dec. 3 and 10 for $10 a kid and $15 for the adults that have to tag along.
Santa will also be having breakfast with the little ones at Congress Hall on Saturdays and Sundays through Dec. 18. After that, he really has to get back to the North Pole and get everything ready for the big night.
Congress Hall will also be serving up the hot stuff during December, as in hot chocolate. There will be a special hot chocolate bar on Saturdays and Sundays starting at 9 a.m.
And if you are looking for dinner on Christmas Day, The Blue Pig at Congress Hall will have a three-course meal from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
To keep it English, there will be a Country Fish Pie Dinner at The British Chip Shop in Haddonfield from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
