Just an FYI...Mikes has also opened up a restuarant by our club In White Oaks Mainia on Rock Creek on the Patapsco

Larry was still at Middletons as of October.

Re: what to do in annapolis

One thing I've always wanted to do in Annapolis is to sneak onto the grounds of the campus and have a look around. Of course, these days I'd be likely to have a good look at their brig if I tried that as the campus is quite well guarded by land. They do give escorted tours of the campus though as stated here: United States Naval Academy | Visit USNA

Being the cheapskate that I am I have wanted to get back at Annapolis for the $7/hour docking fee they charge for tying up at Ego Alley. Once you pay the fee they give you a few tokens to use at their public convenience. What is nice about the public convenience is that it has a shower as well as the usual porcelain conveyances for all your ablution needs. One day I'd like to go to Ego Alley and hang around the Men's room and sneak in when someone comes out. I could have a shower, do some light laundry and basically hang out there most of the day for free while using the city's hot water! I guess that this would not be such a family friendly use of your time though!!!

Seriously though, if I were you (and I'm not) I'd think about taking Jeff_H up on his kind offer of a sail and a meal (you may have to buy). IIRC he has a Farr 40 something that you would probably enjoy being on.

I've heard say that Annapolis is a drinking town with a sailing problem. If you are not into drinking there is always the sailing.

Have a great time. I've always enjoyed my visits to that area but I usually only visit when it is a little warmer.

Wow what a great offer.
I thought I bent your ear enough at the party after the boat show.
Sounds like you are game for more.
Oh I get you you didn't connect me with my user name.

Thanks, I'll pray for bad weather so I can get out of grinding.

If the weather is decent I'm be busy grinding or sanding or something equally horrid. If the weather gets bad what should I do.

Any good used boat part places or nautical themed historical places I should see.

I've already been to that giant mall place with every national store in the country.
I've been to many of the standard tourist shops in old Annapolis because we go to the boat show every year.
I'm looking for what I've missed.

My favs...

Have some Pain Killers.
Have breakfast at Chick & Ruth's
Have lunch at Chick & Ruth's
Visit Bacon's....
Have some more Pain Killers.......

Re: what to do in annapolis

I forgot. Jeff_H only has a Farr 11.6 metre making it about 38' or so, not forty something feet.

It is funny in a way. I have met davidpm a few times IRL (in real life) and only met Jeff_H here by his many posts. I have a distinct feeling that you two should hit it off in a good way even though I have never met Jeff_H IRL.

Anyone else out there have a real life or is this basically it?

???

Oyster shooters (with horseradish) at Middleton's. They each come with a little 3oz beer chaser. They are what I plan to order, if I'm sentenced to death.

Second on Rams Head for a show.

Re: what to do in annapolis

Minne, I believe that it's Middleton's that has the Oyster Shooters...I do agree though, it's a Tradition not to be missed.

Middleton's also usually has a pretty decent band downstairs.
I happen to think the food is overrated and overpriced at Middleton's but you're usually safe with the Rockfish.

For a Steak, I like Lewne's or Ruth's Chris. I was not impressed with the Charthouse, maybe I hit them on a bad day.
