Final Results for Boatyard Bar & Grill 18th Annual Rockfish Tournament

OVAL-2019-FT-Oval-w-date

We like to keep things fresh and lively here at the Boatyard and the 18th Annual Boatyard Bar & Grill Opening Day Rockfish Tournament was no exception!  With winds gusting up to 30 on Saturday, our illustrious judges led by Joe Evans, (his daytime job is editor of Chespeake Bay Magazine)  deemed it prudent to add an additional day to fish on Sunday to offset Saturday's potentially hazardous weather.  With the option to fish one or both days, an occurrence only experienced once before in the history of the event, anglers boldly ventured out to enjoy what they love.

Dicks Blog: Boatyard named Baltimore Sun 2019 Critic's Choice for Best Crab Cake

Baltimores-Best-Crab-Cakes-2019--critics-pick-Boatyard-Bar--Grill

I hate to brag about my team but just once please….The Boatyard was just named  The Baltimore Sun Critic's Choice for “Best Crab Cake.  If you know Baltimore, one thing they hold near and dear are their crab cakes.  For the Baltimore Sun to name us in Annapolis is huge.

Great going Chef George!  (Of course, he was culinary trained and is a Batlimore native so he came up with his recipe there).  We sold over 79,000 crab cakes last year, most right here in the restaurant but a good number also shipped nationwide, along with our crab soups and crab dip.  Her's what the Baltimore Sun said about us "The six ounce orbs (don't call them patties) of jumbo lump crab bring patrons streaming, by land and sea, to Boatyard Bar & Grill...."

It's Feb. and I haven’t written since Nov 1.  Why? because it’s winter in Annapolis and after the regattas, fishing tournaments, Navy football games, boat shows, outdoor beach parties and the holidays, things slow down a lot. View from my house....does it look slow or what? Wait, not totally dead!!

Hurricanes, Jimmy Buffett... and Boatyard Bar & Grill All Killer, No Filler Crab Cakes online

Jimmy-Buffett-on-stage-Paris

November 1 - today is 70 degrees, wow! We won’t see this again until next April/May.  I’m swimming outside for about the last time this year.

We held our last outdoors charity function on Sat Sept 15. It was supposed to be the Boatyard Beach Bash for and at the Annapolis Maritime Museum. BUT, the hurricane was coming up the East Coast after making land in North Carolina and many of the amazing artists fly up from Florida and Nashville.  The Governor declared a state of emergency and the AMM would surely flood so we called it off on Tuesday morning.  Darn!  Wait, on Wednesday AM the storm track shifted south.   Mayer Kirby Mayer, one of our headliners for the Beach Bash, called to say that they were on tour in the area and could still perform for a three-hour concert.  At a Wednesday morning meeting at the Museum quick decisions were made.  With all of our WONDERFFUL sponsors still in we would refund the sold-out Beach Bash tickets and sell our Hurricane Party tickets at a lower price, get a food truck, have a drink table and Boom! we were a "go". The evening was amazing!   Peter Mayer created a bidding frenzy when he offered for auction concert tickets to next year's Jimmy Buffett concert and because of the generosity of some guests in the audience, the museum cleared the same amount that we would have from the bigger event. Thank you, Mayer Kirby Mayer and AMM for their quick reaction time by their incredible staff. Thank you sponsors and our guests who had a great show on a beautiful evening. Here are some pictures from the evening taken by our friend Ken.

Right before our annual trip to Europe we attended the Congressional Medal of Honor Gala Dinner at the Naval Academy.   We couldn't pass up the chance to have a pic with Jay Leno and Emcee Norah O’Donnell. Shameless groupies!!

We were off to London to see G’s fam and catch Hamilton for the third time. We found that, because the English clip their words, you could hear every word unlike in NYC (which of course was also amazing).  We visited Chartwell, Churchill’s home. It’s been totally preserved. His artwork which was his relaxation is displayed in a gallery. He painted about 300 pieces and about 150 are still at Chartwell. The others he gave away and sell at auction at $1M each.  There I am in front of Chartwell flashing the V for Victory sign. And some amazing Scottish eggs at a nearby pub.

On the move, we're off to Paris via the tunnel where we ate and toured street art and ate and ate - visited markets to taste everything....dinner at the Eiffel Tower. We also saw Jimmy Buffett in concert for 1,300 people at Le Cigale which is very special (dates back to 1887).  Jimmy, Peter and Brendan Mayer and the band on stage.

With the holidays coming get your orders in for Boatyard crab cakes which are shipped overnight nationwide, fresh and cold. We also ship crab soups and crab dip. Make great holiday gifts for family and friend - and for corporations too.

With our four outdoor charity events in the books for 2018 we want to thank all of our sponsors, attendees, volunteers - you are what make it all possible.  We have so much fun, let's do it again next year!

September and lots to write to you about..............

Before Fin and the Sailer girls head off to school we got them to WRNR to do a radio ad. They have done so about 8 or 9 years now.   Fin, Morgan and Lilly Sailer at the station. Of course Eastport Pirate Tom Weaver is the voice of the Boatyard and Tom with WRNR producer/DJ Rob do an amazing job.

The third of our big outdoor charity events was mid-August - the Boatyard CRAB Cup to benefit CRAB - Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating for those of all ages with disabilities including wounded warriors.

G and me with Title Sponsor Annapolis Volvo’s Michelle Eichorn at the afterparty featuring Misspent Youth - amazing band. Thank you, Michelle!!!  And of course, Mt. Gay Rum and Red Stripe Beer among others.   Me posing with our Boatyard team, GM Kevin and servers Gabby and Michael.   Our Captain and crew on Juice, very respectable showing less than a minute behind the other Alerion that races in every regatta.
