Home Grown Cafe
Newark, Del.

It appeared that many students from the University of Delaware were back in town for the new school year by Saturday of Labor Day Weekend.  This restaurant/bar near campus was visited by plenty of college-age patrons throughout the night.  As it turned out, Dom had recently rewritten an old song called "On My Way" that he started writing back in -- you guessed it! -- his college days.  The brand-new-but-really-old tune made its show debut in the third set.

This show was the fulfillment of a postponed gig in July, when interior renovations at Home Grown Cafe took longer than expected to complete and forced the cancellation of a few summer shows.  The major upgrade was the the bar (bigger) and an adjoining station that makes it easier and faster for the wait staff to fill orders for non-alcoholic beverages (a welcome addition, since Home Grown Cafe has no customer age restriction and attracts many of the not-yet-21 college crowd).

Also, since it was a long holiday weekend, "One of These Days" -- with its reference to a three-day weekend -- was a must-play.
