Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. But it also means summer kitchens are heating up for the season's rush up and down the coast. In the case of Chesapeake & Maine (316 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 302-226-3600; dogfish.com ), Dogfish Head's hot new seafood restaurant in Rehoboth Beach, there's smoke bred right into some curious raw oysters with a special tea. They're potently flavored and appropriately named "Smoke on the Water. " And they're just the latest clever draw to the beer-centric juggernaut of Sam Calagione's ever-growing Dogfish Head empire, which a couple of years ago also added an inn.

Two decades ago, Sam Calagione launched Dogfish Head in Delaware - and helped jump-start America's craft brewing revolution by taking an innovative "culinary" approach to beer, adding unconventional ingredients like coffee, raisins, saffron, and maple syrup long before strange add-ins became, well, the norm. Now, he's transforming the oyster as we know it by infusing the holding pens of Chesapeake Bay oysters at Hoopers Island Oyster Aquaculture Co. with a "tea" made with smoked salts.

WHEN GEORGIA Bruson was born, William Howard Taft was president, the Ford Model T was a year old, and the Wright brothers were still trying to figure out how to fly that thing. Georgia was born on the Fourth of July, 1909, in Edgefield, S.C. She died July 29 at 106. Her life encompassed a big chunk of American history. The Model T morphed into the sleek chariots plying Interstate 95; the Wright brothers' creation became supersonic jets, and a black man is president of the United States.

THE GREAT American Beer Festival awards are such a tease. Like brazen tarts, the judges tempt us time and again with medals for seductive, mouthwatering brands that just beg you to take a drink. But we can only look, never taste. These award-winners are one-offs. Brewpub seasonals. Special blends. They come and go, peeking out at you like a Maxim magazine nip-slip. Beers like Two Brothers Sour Beer #2 , from Illinois, named the best wood-aged beer in America. I'm sure it's a fine beer; it outpolled more than 100 other entries in the category.

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - Unlike several Sprint Cup drivers who are desperate for a win to guarantee themselves a place in the Chase, Jeff Gordon is simply racing for a high seeding in the Chase. Gordon and Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. have three wins each this season. "We feel like our Chase has somewhat begun," Gordon said yesterday before an appearance at the Rehoboth Beach bandstand for a Q & A with fans to promote the Sept. 28 Cup race at Dover International Speedway.

DOVER, Del. - While they waited for the transcendent moment to arrive - Andre 3000 of OutKast, performing "Hey Ya!" at the apex of the reunited Atlanta rappers' headlining set on Saturday at the Firefly Music Festival - the 80,000 music fans gathered at the Woodlands at Dover International Speedway for the weekend had plenty of diversions to occupy their time. Firefly, which has doubled in size since its inception in 2012, got underway this year Thursday with 20,000 campers set up for a low-key opening featuring California indie-rock band Local Natives and Philadelphia singer-songwriter Amos Lee. On Friday, the fest - which has expanded on 154 bucolic, if a bit dusty, acres - revved up with rock headliners Arctic Monkeys and Foo Fighters, whose leader, Dave Grohl, pleased the Delaware crowd with tales of Rehoboth Beach vacations, and an encore featuring Rolling Stones and Alice Cooper covers.

HAVEN'T QUITE gotten around to renting a beach house for a week this summer? Don't worry. At least, not too much. "We still have a lot available," said Jo-Ann Bacher, the rental manager at Jack Lingo Realtor in Rehoboth Beach, Del. After a snow-laden, sun-starved, polar vortex sort of winter, "We're booking all summer long, July into August," she said. "We have 1,000 homes [for rent], and all of them are nonsmoking," Bacher added. Her inventory is heavy on new townhouses and condo units - which typically come with community pools - plus a dash of charmingly older beach-block homes.

Question: We have moisture in the crawl space under our house in Rehoboth Beach, Del. The exterminator has been telling us this for about three years, and each year the report gets worse. My husband has faith in the builder of the house, who lives in the neighborhood. Three years ago the builder told us that the exterminator was wrong, so we ignored the warning. Now there is mold growing and other issues. We were told that the grading of soil needs to be corrected and that we need a French drain for our outside shower that is up against the house.
