State of Annapolis- Boat Shows- check, most regattas- check (J 24s this weekend), USNA football one home game left- check. We will miss the high season at the Boatyard Bar & Grill but the quiet has its nice moments. 57,000 crab cakes sold last year. This year should be higher with our world famous “all killer no filler” Maryland Crab Cakes selling nationwide through the FoodyDirect platform.   We're so honored to have been shipping crab cakes, soup and dip throughout the U.S.,  including Hawaii (know anyone in Alaska?).....introducing the Boatyard fare to friends and family, and newbies everywhere.  Right now, "giving" means "getting" something too:

the Give-A-Gift, Get-A-Gift special runs through November 5!

Parties at home, hostess gifts and holiday cheer - shop online and check off your list.  Really, what would Thanksgiving be without Maryland crab cakes!

Chill in the air today, first time, damn man! Get Georgina pointed south! She’s at Jabin’s getting first class service - bottom painted and engine fall service.  (Rod and Roddy on the job). Then we will have her run south to Fla- Stuart or West Palm. We will fly down and take her across to the Abacos. First stop Spanish Cay then our beloved Hopetown, Elbow Key, Abacos for the winter. We will fly back and forth and when there rent an Albury 21/23 to snorkel and fish and a golf cart to run to dinner and around the island. Firefly -we will be there a lot. And Abaco Inn too. On Da Beach for lunch. Hopetown Harbour Lodge for lunches and a swim. Harbor’s Edge Sat night for the great music. Love Hopetown!!

Our last Boatyard Charity event-the Boatyard Bash for and at the Annapolis Maritime Museum was held mid-September. A beautiful evening with amazing music and most importantly raising $90,000 for the AMM’s rich educational programs. Artists included Coral Reefers Pete Mayer and Doyle Grisham. Also John Frinzi, Keith Sykes, Aaron Scherz, Brendon Mayer, John Patti and Scott Kirby. Click here to see more pics on our website - but most importantly the whole evening's musical talent line up and the “Big Check" below.  It was our 13th year of this incredible event on the shores of Back Creek. It always sells out so don’t wait to buy your tickets next year. Fin’s Up.

57,000 Maryland crab cakes, sailing, sea bass, cool stuff, Annapolis & beyond!

Plowing thru August - darn, days are getting shorter - but at least I don’t wake up at 5 AM at the first light streaming in. But summers are so great.

Americas Cup:

So I’m watching the Americas Cup awards presentation from Bermuda (while I am working at my desk) and Tucker Thompson walks out on stage and is the emcee of the whole show. The Boatyard was the first client of Tucker Thompson and Bruce Nairn of t2p.tv to film the AYC Wednesday Night races and other regattas which have been shown at the Boatyard for 17 years (AYC Wed Night Series as well as regattas from Key West to Charleston to Block Island to Newport - all towing our film boat). Tucker has been the front man of this year’s America’s Cup taking the 2016 Cup around the Country all year prior to the 2017 Cup held in June. He did a great job running the Awards Ceremony. Well done TT!

Been gone too long but I’m at my desk and ready to write.  And show lots of pics.  Chef greeted my return with last year’s totals -- the Boatyard sold 57,000 Maryland crab cakes last year.  Whew!  And now we are on FoodyDirect's amazing national platform.  Look them up and see our world-famous Maryland crab cakes, Maryland crab and cream of crab soups and our amazing crab dip thru their national site. We are proud to be partnering with FoodyDirect and shipping our crab cakes online!

Did I mention $10 off your first order??

 Our 17th Annual Boatyard Bar & Grill Catch and Release Fishing Tournament was again a great success in April.  As usual, an awesome crowd!  Featured is the winner Jimmy Moreland with Title Sponsor, Anglers Sport Center owner Charlie Ebersberger.   Catch all the results on the Boatyard website.    Thanks to all sponsors, fishermen/women and party attendees.  It’s the first official start of spring on the Bay.

Late March in Eastport (brrrrr) and the Sock Burning Party at the Annapolis Maritime Museum is this Saturday.  We had a warm-up last night here at the Boatyard with the Eastport Oyster Boys and some of their Irish friends entertaining the crowd at our “Eastport Irish Up the Republic (We like it this way!) Night.”  Friday for St Paddy’s Day we bring back legendary bartender Jeff Macguire for what we call Macguire’s Irish Pub.  We rename the Boatyard for the day (yes, Kevin gets on the roof to cover the sign up with a Maguire sign!) and have Chef George’s amazing Irish fare, special Maguire pint glasses and great entertainment.

Our Travel Channel show aired about three weeks ago.  Chef George was a total star.  Travel Channel Food Paradise Super Sandwiches - it will keep airing over time.  Watch the segment, click here.   Pretty cool for Annapolis and the Boatyard!

Busy Fall at the Boatyard and Eastport.  The Boatyard Beach Bash at and for the Annapolis Maritime Museum was a sell out success on Sat. Sept 17th and a record amount of money was raised to support their educational programs.  As you may recall it’s our Parrotthead event with members of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band joining other singer-songwriters from Florida and Nashville.  This year’s line-up included Coral Reefers Peter Mayer and Doyle Grisham joining John Frinzi, Scott Kirby, Jim White, Aaron Schertz and Peter’s son Brendan Mayer.  JB’s close friend songwriter/author Tom Corcoran and Radio Margaritaville DeeJay J.D. Spradlin were also here to hold court.
