Highlights
Giddens' Legendary Do Drop Inn
Built in 1967 by Lloyd Henry Giddens, the former restaurant and lounge has remained largely untouched for the better part of 50 years. It is one of the oldest continually owned and operated African-American businesses on Virginia's Eastern Shore and was once open seven days a week, offering soul food, a jukebox, penny candy and a firm handshake for members of the Shore's African-American community who were excluded from many venues at the time. Now, just once a month the field-turned-makeshift parking lot between the Do-Drop Inn and Cabarrus’ home fills with cars. The lights are turned up and the bar is wiped down, the fridge is stocked with bargain beer and barbecue sauce is slathered onto thick and juicy pork ribs. Cabarrus, alongside her sisters and any nephews and nieces she can wrangle from the Hampton Roads area, opens the doors for folks of all colors. Welcome! (with appreciation from https://www.delmarvanow.com/story/news/local/virginia/2017/03/06/giddens-do-drop-inn/98309826/)
The Sonic Ukes
Since 2017, the Sonic Ukes have been entertaining & educating the local folks on the ESVA with the wonderful Ukulele--a first for the Shore! They play a wide variety of classic, hawaiian, alternative & rock tunes--nothing is off limits!
