CRABCAKE: What’s The Deal With Fall Beers (October 2018)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today, we continue our monthly series (no set schedule other than monthly) about beer.  We have a huge distributer of beer right here in Annapolis–Katcef Brothers Inc. and they have a ton of experts on hand to de-mystify beer for us.  Now, full disclosure–I like beer! I like beer a lot!  But, I am not a beer snob and a Bud Light will suit me just fine.

This month, Lauren Hamilton joined us again and brought along Mike LeViseur from Katcef and Josh Barr from The Military Bowl!

Four years ago, Katcef came up with an idea to honor heroes in the lives of everyday people. Who’s Your Hero was born. Four years later it is kicking off again on November 11, 2018 at 1pm at Heroes Pub in West Annapolis. Budweiser has forged a new partnership with Jim Beam and created Bud Copper Lager for a limited time. And finally, Josh Barr is one of the movers and shakers of the Military Bowl and we talk about the game, the parade, the Clydesdales, and all of the excitement surrounding this New Year’s Eve event!

Fighting Breast Cancer: The Annapolis Dragon Boat Club (E-116)

Louise Kirk and Chandra Jackson are warriors!

Both of them are breast cancer survivors (Louise, 5 years and Chandra for 15) and both of them paddle with the Annapolis Dragon Boat Club!

In this episode (John thinks it is one of the most powerful episodes) we talk about sobering statistics (1 in 8 women will be affected). We discuss why African American women are more likely to die from it. And we talk about paddling and how it helps men and women recover.

But the Annapolis Dragon Boat Club is a lot more than helping survivors rebuild their strength. It’s about community, camaraderie, family, and surviving!

We purposely missed Breast Cancer Awareness month by a day — we should be aware of it every month–not just October!

Come along with us for a dragon boat ride for the next 50 minutes and see if you don’t agree–one of the most powerful episodes!

CRABCAKE: USS Sioux City commissioning in November (October 2018)

This USS Sioux City will be steaming up the Chesapeake Bay on November 10th to prepare for her commissioning at the Naval Academy on the 17th.

The week is full of opportunities for the community to see the ship, support the ship and it’s crew and celebrate this once (maybe twice) in a lifetime event…unless you are in the Navy…then maybe not so much! But it starts on Saturday the 10th with the arrival. The Veterans’ Classic basketball tournament is on the 11th with a Maryland Vs Navy game in hoops! Plenty of opportunity to see the ship during the week. The official commissioning is at 9am on Saturday the 17th, and it all wraps up with Navy’s final home football game of the season at the stadium as they take on Tulsa at 330pm on the 17th.

We sat down with RADM Frank Thorp (Ret) who is chairman of the commissioning committee to see what is in store for Annapolis.

Things I learned from this episode…

  • This ship is fast–50 MPH and it is 300+ feet long!
  • Tickets to witness the commissioning ceremony are free but you need them and they are almost sold out. I just got mine!
  • There are free tours of the ship throughout the week.
  • They will not let me drive it.
  • Annapolis businesses are rolling out the red carpet for the crew and we should too.
  • I have a mental block on Bread and Butter Kitchen–I always call it “Cafe”…Monica will need to change the name, but DO go there and eat!!
