Re: what to do in annapolis

Don't miss Annapolis Performance Sailing for the really sexy bits, none of that clunky Garhauer stuff there... (grin)

Every once in a while, you can score a great deal on something from Musto or Slam on their sale rack... I never miss a stop at APS when I'm in town, cool store, and really nice people...

Davis Pub in Eastport for a cold one or three.

If you need groceries and want a different experience check out the PA Dutch Market. They have a restaurant there as well but I haven't tried it so can't vouch for it.

Re: what to do in annapolis

I second the recommendation to drive up to Baltimore and tour the inner harbor area. While you are at it, drive across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, then turn south through Easton. Make your way to St. Michaels and Oxford to visit the Chesapeake Maritime Museum and a quaint Eastern Shore town.

If you are really ambitious, drive east on Rte. 50 across the Eastern Shore, then head north to Lewes, Delaware and ride the ferry to Cape May, N.J. You won't be disappointed.

Re: what to do in annapolis

I like the Cafe Normandie for breakfast/brunch.as alternative to R and C's
..it's not cheap..but the food is good. It's just up the street a little further.

Mc Garvey's for the Raw bar.. The Marriot for Pain Killers,

Re: what to do in annapolis

Bacon's (weekdays) - best "used boat parts place"
also, Fairwinds Marina on the Magothy R. - tons of boat bits, but a pretty disorganized.
x2 on Naval Academy Museum.

Oyster shooters at Middletown Tavern!

Re: what to do in annapolis

In terms of being exposed to odd bits of old stuff, you can have lunch or dinner with me, and grab a sail on Synergy.

Re: what to do in annapolis

Middleton's tavern. Have the black bean soup. They make it so you can mix in onions and rice to your own liking. Then go upstairs to the piano bar. I don't know if "Larry the piano player" is still playing, but he's fantastic. Have a beer and catch some great tunes.

Years ago we'd go to Buddy's Crab House for their Sunday brunch. It was fantastic. (Not sure about it now.)

Go hang out at Lee Airport and offer to pitch in for gas if someone takes you up. Then see Annapolis from the air.

Mike's crab hous on the South River, right off Riva Road.

Too bad about Chick and Ruth's. They once opened up the Governor's booth for us.

David-- when are you going? Maria and I want to meet you down there and take you and your son out for dinner. It may be a way to pay back some of your "24 x 7" help.

Regards,
Brad
