It's no different than people in Connecticut going to NYC.

I've got small children. I have no interest in engaging in "the night life" every weekend. So, no.

I don't care for killadelphia myself, including the schlep up there on I-95. We do actually go to church there fairly often, but nothing else. Even then it's a drag because Centre City Philly is always having some event on Sundays during the warmer seasons, closing off streets and making it hard to get from point A to point B by car. For big city life I'd rather go less frequently up to NYC, and otherwise I'm quite happy going down to the DE beaches during the warmer months of the year. Apart from having an international airport that we need and use, I'd be happy for Philly to evaporate entirely.

Glad you like where you live; so do I. Boring is a point of view and DE is so much more enjoyable without that annoying whining.

I don't know any guys, driving up there just for fun. I know one (gay) guy, who could not stand it living in wilmington, so he moved to phl and worked in DE.
there ARE nice places around to go out, good clubs, cafes etc, if you have to party. I can't see the need. when we have girls night out, we always have fun - IN delaware , can you believe that ??

What? It takes longer to get from KOP to Phila during rush hour than it does from Wilm to Phila.

Did you possibly mean New York? That's the definition of a schlep. I'm totally sick of that drive.

I know a gay couple who moved from Philly to Wilmington, though they continue to work in Philly. I agree that Wilmington doesn't strike me as a great place for gay singles, though I really don't know. My partner and I are full-fledged middle aged gay coupled, having been together since our university days. The couple I know who chose to move to Wilmo are mid-30s, so younger than we are, but apparently not into the bar scene. I don't really care. It would be nice to have a really good neighborhood type gay bar in Wilmington that had a good Fri happy hour and a Sunday afternoon "tea" (Sun. happy hour) -- these are traditionally attended by gay patrons who are older, coupled, or not really aggressively on the prowl. Unfortunately that's not the case in Wilmington, but I'm fine with what Rehoboth has to offer -- so much easier to deal with than Philly!

Wilmington and Delaware as a whole, has no outlet for original music anymore. Newark used to be OK, but now that so many of the venues have been torn down, we are left with MOJO 13. I have heard Logan House may dabble in the original music scene, but I do not know for certain.

Pick up a "Spark" newspaper (issued by the News Journal) - you will see the music scene in all it's glory in there

I moved to Delaware at the same time my friends were getting married and starting families...we grew up and don't need to party all the time. Close minded family and friends think it is "too far" to come to my house (45-50 minutes from where they live). I might as well live in Iraq as far as they are concerned but I don't care...I enjoy my quiet and peaceful living.
