Lures Bar & Grill schedules August Beer Club event

Jul 29, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Lures Bar & Grill in Crownesville just announced the date for their August Beer Club dinner. Head over to 1397 Generals Highway from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 17, and enjoy Evolution Craft Beer -- one of my favorites, by the way. The price of the event, $38.50, covers the beer, buffet food, tax and gratuity.

Sip wine on the dock of the bay

Jul 29, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Lower Shore residents and visitors have a chance to taste some wine and have some fun this weekend at Olde Crisfield Crab, Steakhouse and Tiki Bar's first Winefest on the Bay. The event will be held from 3-9 p.m. Saturday, July 31, at the restaurants. The Winefest will feature tastings from wineries such as Sterling Vineyards, Rosenblum, and Chalone Vinyeard, all in California, and Casa Lapostolle from Chili. In addition to the tastings, you can enjoy some grub, play some games and take in live entertainment.

Capriotti's opens an outpost on Kent Island

Jul 28, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Kent Island residents, if you've been craving a taste of Thanksgiving, then you're in luck -- Capriotti's Sandwich Shop, home of the The Bobbie, has opened a new store in Red Apple Village. I've never tried The Bobbie -- made with homemade turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and mayo -- but I have heard about it, despite never having lived near a Capriotti's. Apparently this sandwich was named "The Greatest Sandwich in America" by an AOL reader poll. That's quite the recommendation. Because this new shop is right off Route 50 and within view of my commute home at the end of the day, I just might have to stop in to try it. Don't worry -- I'll let you know if it's as good as the hype.

Mexican Cafe Update: Getting Closer to Relocation

Jul 09, 2010 ● By Anonymous

It seems like ages ago when we first reported that the Mexican Cafe, everyone's favorite little slice of Tijuana, would be relocating from it's quaint Annapolis digs near Bay Ridge to West Annapolis at the former site of Northwoods; the move being forced by the land/building owner's sale of the property to corporate CVS, which is planning to bulldoze the site and build, you guessed it, a CVS. But I digress; here's an update from Mexican Cafe's owner Pam Gladfelter (not to be confused with the owner of the property, whom she rents from):

Power Lunch: Pauls' Homewood Cafe a Safe Bet

Jul 08, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Welcome to Power Lunch. Each week we’ll review a restaurant in Annapolis or on the Eastern Shore from the perspective of nine-to-fivers getting lunch in the middle of their workday. Hence, pace and cost will be factored differently than you’d expect from a typical restaurant review, which is usually from the perspective of a dinner experience. How we got here: Easily! Paul's Homewood Cafe is conveniently located adjacent to our offices. We've been enjoying Paul's for years, but it has been several months since we last had a bite here. For those more than a skip away, Paul's has ample parking to the rear of its West Street-side entrance. Since it was a blistering hot day, we opted to stay indoors and enjoyed a table for two in the contemporary (and recently renovated) main dining room (there are pockets of tables throughout the premises and even a new second level of seating). If it weren't so blazing, we'd have likely opted for one of the outdoor patio tables overlooking bustling West Street. On to the meal.

Brique opens to a Packed House in Centreville

Jul 02, 2010 ● By Anonymous

The much anticipated opening of Brique in Centreville (formerly Julia's) did not dissapoint. With what can only be described as a great success, Brique has matched the hype that has surrounded its opening...and then some. As a frequent patron of Julia's, I walked into Brique and wasn't sure what to expect in terms of decor, but the new owners, Billy Fairbanks and Tommy Inzer, stayed true to the building's historical charm--highlighting the original brick wall, and painting the opposite walls a nice off white color (to match the table cloths, napkins, and leather chairs), with the trim and parts of the ceiling accented with a muted royal blue color. Our waitress, Bridgette greeted us with a friendly smile and offered to help us pair our dinner with an appropriate wine selection.

Power Lunch: Waterman's Tavern a ringer!

Jun 25, 2010 ● By Anonymous

How we got here: Waterman's Tavern has been open for about one year at their Edgewater location, which is a 15 minute clip from Annapolis. We breezed over the South River Bridge on a sunny day and the views of the vast river put us in a waterman's state of mind. Off Route 2, you jut east on Mayo Road and the tavern is about 2 miles upward on the corner of Mayo and Ridgeville Rds. Take note: it's very easy to whiz right by it; much easier to look for Londontown Wine & Spirits (bold blue building on the right), which is directly adjacent to Waterman's. If you hit Adam's Ribs, you've driven a touch too far.

Cheeburger Cheeburger: More than Good Food and Music

Jun 24, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Cheeburger Cheeburger's Annapolis location (Festival Shopping Ctr) will receive a Governor's Citation today, June 24th, at 1 p.m., recognizing the business as a "model for community involvement and fund raising excellence," as stated in a press release issued earlier this week. In the first five months of 2010, Cheeburger owners Harold Aultry and Aaron Benjamin have donated more than $16K to various causes including educational fundraisers in Annapolis, March of Dimes, March for Babies, and the Avon Breast Cancer Walk. Kudos to the entire Cheeburger team on their award.
