Thanks MJ,

I promised my wife I'd take her to Little Italy for dinner but seeing how we'll be in town for a few days we might try your suggestion too.

I guess whatever I save on dockage I'll end up spending in town (I'm not sure if that is good or bad?)

if you forget the electric and shower part fells point is free to tie up in, if you come give me a pm and we can have a beer some where. i spend a fair amount of weekends in fells point.

edit if you eat in little italy, cafe gia is decent but has typical little italy prices but it is a byob for now, so you could save some there. i guess i do enough work for cafe gia i can recommend them.

Yes you'll definately spend the money elsewhere Little Italy has some very nice but pricey places to eat. As does the area surrounding the marina referred to as Inner Harbor "East". We prefer the bars/resturants in Fells Pt. Check at the office when you check in, they have a book of menus from resturants. Some even have discounts if you mention the marina. We just ate at Dolce Notte in Little Italy and saved 20%. Food was very good as was the service. BTW if you like live music and an eclectic atmosphere try the Cats Eye Pub in Fells Pt. They always have good bands, switching out several times in a day. Have a good trip.

scottyt: I think I'll pass on the public docking idea, after having an unwanted guest come aboard while tied up in front of Harbor Place we either stay on the hook or at a "secure" marine.

Now if you're buying maybe we can meet up for a beer, but be warned....I have a big liver.

Mike: We arrived today and the woman in the office told us about Della (Dolce) Notte...I think we're going to try that tonight. There's a lot of places we'd like to visit (Fells Point, Canton and the Aquarium) so it looks we're staying put for now. For the $8/day for electric and free cable I can't complain....oh yeah, the dockhand was even nice enough to lend me a cable cord...I forgot mine.

Well, off to dinner!

Chris, I hope you enjoyed dinner. FYI the acquarium has a Friday night special where you can get in after 5:00 for a greatly reduced price. I don't think they do the dolphin show but the rest of the place is open. If you have kids with you and it's warm enough take them to the Fountain Park next to the Welcome Ctr in Inner Harbor. They have foutains that shoot up out of the ground accompanied by music. It looked like so much fun I almost jumped in with the kids

Mike,

We had a great time. Inner Harbor East might not be the flashest marina in town but they have a great location and the people there couldn't of been nicer to us. I asked the gentleman in the office where Mike (MJBrown) kept his boat, he sent me to a pretty new looking Beneteau, is that you?

Oh, yeah, D. Notte was an excellent recommendation..thank you.

-Chris

Chris, glad to hear you enjoyed Baltimore. Yes the marina is not the classiest place at the moment but will be a tad better once they move the office into the new Legg Mason building that towers over it. Also glad to hear you liked Della Notte. Wouldn't want the wife unhappy would we?

As for the pretty new Beneteau yes that's ours. We took bought it after last years show. Matter of fact it was the 43 at the show.

Mike

I thought I recognized my drool stains from the show.

That is one beautiful boat.

Thanks Chris, we're pretty happy with her. At this point I'm getting more familiar with trimming her our under different conditions. Set her up right and she's pretty quick. She's also very comfortable down below. Something that keeps the Admiral happy
