Owen's Pub - 10/31, 4:09 p.m.
Just to give everyone a heads up. Owens will not be opening this weekend. The service we got to clean up the damage is incredible and very complete. We are hoping to be ready for cheesesteak Monday (keep your fingers crossed). We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Marie Nicole's Restaurant - 10/31, 3:28 p.m.
Happy to announce no damage at Marie Nicole's in Wildwood Crest! We hope to re-open Friday, but will let you know for sure!

Rapunzel's, Home of Cathie's Critters & Fresh Eire - 10/31, 2:18 p.m.
Rapunzel's is fine. A bit of wet seeped under the door, but the duct tape inside/outside really helped. I plan to open the doors and air it out later. Wildwood has some cleaning up to do, but all things considered, we are fine.

Please keep those communities and people that are in worse shape in your prayers.

We are happy that the Shore Plaza was spared any damages from the storm. The most important thing is that nobody in our little town was injured during this hurricane.



  1. Owen's pub should not be sorry, this storm was devastating for the whole shore area. just glad to see that this area did not get too much damage.

  2. God bless all of you. So very happy that most of you were pretty safe from the destruction....our prayers were definitely heard and answered!

  3. we were fortunate to be spared major damage and loss of life - lets pray for our families and friends who are dealing with devastations following the aftermath of sandy

  4. So happy to hear that Sandy spared the Wildwoods and my heart goes out to the families who lost their piece of paradise. We are truly blessed.

  5. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the business owners and residents of not only Wildwood but all the places effected by Sandy. Does anyone know how the 2 Mile Crab House that just re-opened fared?
