Welcome, everyone, to Memorial Day weekend!
Not only is Memorial Day a day where we remember and honor all those who served, past and present, but it’s also a day where we can enjoy the sun, family, and great food in this great country of ours. Which, has been so carefully protected by the brave men and women of the armed forces.
This Memorial Day, first and foremost, honor and thank all those who served!
While you’re doing that, it’s pretty expected that you’ll also be enjoying the three-day weekend with everyone you love doing things we weren’t able to do over the long winter.
You may be boating, swimming, fishing, barbequing, hiking, biking, eating, drinking, or for some of us, working.
Still looking for stuff to do? A while back we put together this handy guide about all the things you can do this Memorial Day.
Now, we wanted to line up a scheduled list of everything going on in the start-spangled, Pearl of the Chesapeake, Rock Hall.
Obviously, we have to mention that yours truly will have a sunny, open tiki deck with a ton of yard games. Come in for some delicious nibbles and cold drinks with the whole family, and we’ll take good care of you! PLUS we have live music starting tonight, 5/24:
Friday Night: Jeff Washington from 6-9
Saturday Night: Pianoman Ted from 6-9
