Crab Feast @ Annapolis Moose

Our night out at the Moose on Thursday night was excellent.  A large group of our members attended and most ordered the steamed crabs.  However, those who ordered other food off the menu said it was good also.  Comments were positive all around.

There is ample parking close to the entrance, and the Moose personnel are very friendly and accommodating.  Even though we were a large group our waitress gave us separate checks, which is a big help to us, but can be a nightmare for a waitress. 

Sue Sohn is a member there and organized the evening for us.  Frank Welch is also a member of the Annapolis branch, so maybe we will have many more pleasant nights there to come.  We hope so.

Thanks Sue for our first steamed crabs of the season.

June 6th, Sunday Brunch

Brunch at Harry Browne's in Annapolis on Sunday was excellent.  We could order off the menu, which was really inexpensive ($8 to $13), or we could get our meal from the buffet.  With the buffet we not only had a choice of many breakfast items, but fruits, soup, salmon, and dessert (with lemon tarts to die for).  Bloody Mary, Champagne, or Mimosa was complimentary with the buffet.  We sat near the window in our own little cubical.  So it was very private for us also.

We all car-pooled, meeting at 2 places, Waugh Chapel and Riva shopping centers.  That way we only needed 2 cars.  We parked in a garage in Annapolis and walked to brunch.  After brunch we went to Annapolis First Sunday on West Street.  Various vendors were on both sides of a section of West Street, which was blocked off to traffic, selling their wares.  A few of the members purchased some of their very unique items.

What a nice day it was to be with others, chatting, good food, and having fun.  Much better than sitting at home if you had nothing else to do that day.  Our day lasted until around 2:00pm, after returning to our cars and heading home.

Lunch at Kentmoor Marina

What a nice day!  Nicole and Jean co-chaired a lunch at Kentmoor Marina in Stevensville.  Several of us met at Dottie's home and carpooled across the Bay Bridge.  We met a couple other members at the Marina.  The day was beautiful, sun shining, breezy and warm.
Lunch was good.  Everyone ordered seafood of some kind.  After lunch we tried one of their famous drinks, the Polar Bear, made with ice cream (see table).  We took our drinks outside to the picnic tables and the beach.
In addition to the picnic tables, there were hammocks and swings along the beach front.  A couple of us walked the beach for a little while and then tried out the swings. 
If you sat home alone on Sunday, May 16, take a look at the day we had.  Don't miss out the next time.  Good conversation, good food, and a beautiful day was had by all.
