The English are coming to Wilmington

by Beasteh Online Now Jun 24, 2006 at 10:56 AM

Hi there.
We're coming over to watch some footy (soccer), our team Sheffield Wednesday are in the US to play some friendly games, we're playing the HAmmerheads, and I'm just wondering about what the night life, bars and food places are like in Wilmington.

Obviously I've checked out the websites but I wouldn't mind a bit more feedback.

Live music?
Will we get some on an evening?

Also we wouldn't mind doing a bit of bowling and golf.
What's available for us?

One last thing...
Any of the locals going to watch the soccer?

What's the soccer standard like?
Anyone reading this going?

Thanks,
Steve:Beasie.

    Thanks for that mate.

    I'm finding me way around the site slowly.
    I will try and e-mail someone and put some questions to them.

    I suppose I was kinda hoping for that rare thing, some US footy fans, to chip in with something, so we could arrange a meet up.
    There's a few of us going so it should be a good week.

    I'm really looking forward to this trip...

    There will of course be the usual rambles, and loads of photo's.
