On the Beach!

Time for those flip-flops and shark fin hats! On Saturday, Sept. 20, 2008, the Boatyard Bar & Grill will host its 4th Annual Boatyard Beach Party to benefit the Annapolis Maritime Museum. The Beach Party will be held on the Museum's own beach at 723 Second Street, Eastport, where Second Street meets Back Creek.
Featured entertainers are The John Frinzi Band, Jim Morris and James "Sunny Jim" White from Florida, and, from Nashville, Doyle Grisham, long-time steel guitar great of the Coral Reefer Band.
The Boatyard Bar & Grill is importing lots of Parrotheads, palm trees, sharks, and loads of good time beach party fun. The Museum's beach and waterside campus will be transformed into a tiki village by Hargrove, Inc., the area's premier event design firm. "Sunny Jim" White will start things off for a whole night of "the songs you know by heart" until the party closes at 9 p.m.
Beach Party attire is Key West/Parrothead casual and the $50 party ticket includes lots of tasty food and two free drinks.

Last year the Beach Party raised $40,000 toward the funds needed to rebuild the McNasby Oyster Company building at the Museum. The $1.2 million renovation started in May and will be completed in November.
The Beach Party is sponsored by Comcast; BB&T; Hargrove, Inc.; Annapolis Jaguar/Land Rover; Wine Cellars of Annapolis; SpinSheet; PropTalk; What's Up? Annapolis and What's Up Eastern Shore; Inside Annapolis magazine and WRNR.
The Annapolis Maritime Museum is located at 723 Second Street in the Eastport neighborhood of Annapolis. It's just a 20-minute walk from Annapolis City Dock, across the Spa Creek Bridge, left onto Severn Avenue, right onto Second Street to the end. Or take a water taxi from City Dock to McNasby's docks at the mouth of Back Creek.
The Boatyard Bar & Grill, located at Severn and 4th in Eastport - is about pint drinks, fresh food, a healthier Bay, sailing fast, fishing with friends, and happy kids.
