Home Grown Cafe
Newark, Del.

Dom's first trip of the year to Delaware couldn't have occurred in a more festive, lively setting!  The Saturday before St. Patrick's Day became a
de facto celebration day for many in the Newark, Del., area.  Plus, the University of Delaware -- based in Newark and brushing up against Main Street where Home Grown Cafe is located --  was not yet on spring break, so the stylish restaurant/bar in the heart of the city was filled all night with townsfolk and collegefolk.  To mark the holiday that was to take place officially on Tuesday, Dom played a song by an Irish artist in each set (U2, Van Morrison, and Philadelphia-based Patrick's Head).

One debut of a Dom original:  "Better Than a Thesis," a short tune squeezed in at the end of the final set.
