Erica and chef will see if we can't impose on you next time.
Never an imposition David...Glad you had a great time. Cold weather is entrenched now....come back when we can sail

Do the DC cabs have GPS now? Some cities are starting to do that, which keeps them sane. I also loved that big trailer trucks in Europe all had a GPS recorders aboard and could get a speeding ticket a month later when it was read.

Re: what to do in annapolis

chef2sail: Yeah, I thought it couldn't really be worse here than my former home, Miami. But instead of just the crazy driving habits from every country in Latin America, plus snowbirds, this region has the crazy driving habits from every country in the world and every area of the US. At least in Miami the cabbies drive like it's the gran prix; in DC they drive like little old ladies! I guess I'm just used to driving in Miami summer monsoon conditions where you can see at most one car length in front of you, but here a few sprinkles and US-50 is a parking lot.

I second chucklesR on Deep Creek; haven't been for the Sunday brunch, but have enjoyed lunch there.

Re: what to do in annapolis

Deep Creek Restaurant on (of course) Deep Creek in Arnold - Sunday Brunch is wonderful.

Based on the weather today (winter mix) you aren't getting much done.

Most of the tour is outside, btw. Lots of local runners loop though the grounds daily, and you can even take your dog.

I'm partial to Davis' Pub in Eastport since I live in stumbling distance and it's the cheapest drinks in town. The Maritime Museum is also just a few blocks from there, but I've never been. Leeward Market at Second and Chester is a popular breakfast and lunch spot for lots of liveaboards. Boatyard is pricier, but the margarita pizza is good and it's popular for shooters and raw bar (I'm allergic, so no personal view on that). My take is the crowd at Boatyard is more racers and yachties and Davis' is more liveaboards and working stiffs. I've not been to Red Red Wine but have heard some good things. A local band I'm friends with is playing there for NYE, so I'll be checking it out then. If you venture out of downtown, Heroes Pub near West Annapolis has the largest draft beer selection in town and the best pork tacos on Thursday nights. Jalapenos by Towne Center has an excellent happy hour daily offering delicious Spanish and Mexican tapas at $5 each that are usually $10+. Two margaritas there and you're probably feeling pretty festive.

Insofar as it's currently snow and rain, I'd avoid major road trips as much as possible because people here and in DC can't drive for $h!t even when it's sunny. Two snowflakes and there will be accidents everywhere. I'd just walk to lots of stuff in Eastport and downtown; and you can take the e-cruiser electric golf cart thing all through those areas, too; it's free but you tip the driver.

Hope you enjoy your visit.
Davids from the NY area...hes used to crazy drivers like the DC area
Not much snow sticking to the roads today and I am further north in Baltimore ( I work in DC though at the Capitol Buildings).

DC drivers are a treat in bad weather though, I have to agree. Its because its truly an international city and many have never seen snow or ice and they bring their road manners from where they came from.

David pub good recommendation

Re: what to do in annapolis

Go to Chick & Ruth's. Maybe try their 6 lb milkshake or crab cakes, or just hang out for their happy hour that starts at 5.
