CRABCAKE: Fall beer, Fall fests, and the Clydesdales! (September 2019)

 

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….or longer in this case, because..well…beer! 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, the team at Katcef is only giving up a taste of the fall beers–they will come out in force next month. But we do try Devil’s Backbone O’Fest and Victory’s Fest Bier.We broke some news about the Clydesdales and this year’s Military Bowl, but we also talked about a bunch of festivals you need to put on your calendar to really experience the fall beer scene!  And in chronological order….

* Friday, September 13 at Buffalo Wild Wings. 5pm to 7pm. The Bud Light Brigade will be there with swag, giveaways, and your chance to win FOUR tickets to see Navy Football take on ECU on Saturday! And, it includes parking.  Bud Light will be around town every Friday before a Navy home game looking to give away the Bud Light Golden Tickets! Keep your eyes peeled for them!

Come along on our beer journey!

CRABCAKE: Yeah baby, Twist and Stout is back for the 2nd year at Quiet Waters Park! (September 2019)

It’s happening again! Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks is sponsoring a full-on festival at Quiet Waters Park complete with bands, artists, food trucks, vendors, and… wait for it… Maryland Wines and Maryland Craft Beer!  It’s Twist and Stout!

What’s so unusual is that large events with alcohol are usually prohibited. And to make it more unusual, most festivals never have access to the beauty that is Quiet Waters Park.  Join us as we talk with Colleen Joseph from the County about the festival, what they learned last year, and what’s in store for this year!

Save the date– Saturday, September 28, 2019 from Noon to 6pm at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis — Twist and Stout!

CRABCAKE: Is An Electric Vehicle In Your Future? (September 2019)

Transportation is changing. We are hearing talks about autonomous vehicles fifty years down the road; but in the here and now, we have electric vehicles.

Elvia Thompson the founder of Annapolis Green joins us with Divesh Gupta who is the Director of Strategy | Utility of the Future for BGE.

Annapolis Green is bringing more than 70 electric vehicles to City Dock in Annapolis on June 14th for the 7th Annual Electric Vehicle Showcase.  This is your chance to kick the tires and batteries of today’s electric vehicles. Chat up the owners and get all those doubts out of your head!

There will be sport cars, family cars, motorcycles, police cars and even a bus from BGE.

And speaking of BGE, Divesh discusses the newest initiative from BGE–installing 500 charging stations in their service area. The first one was just installed last week at the Pip Moyer Recreation Center right here in Annapolis.

Have a listen. See how easy (and affordable) owning an electric vehicle can be, and then make sure you head on down to the Annapolis City Dock on June 14th from 11am to 5pm!

CRABCAKE: Annapolitan Jacob Landis pays forward his gift of hearing (September 2019)

For a moment, imagine that you are hearing the phone ring and dreading another telemarketer call.  Now imagine that same phone ringing tomorrow–but you cannot hear it!

That happened to Annapolis resident, Jacob Landis, at age 9. With no answers as to why he went deaf, his family embarked on a journey that ended with Jacob betting a cochlear implant to regain his hearing.

But Jacob’s journey continued. He wanted to give this gift to others and six years ago embarked on a fund raising bike ride to all MLB stadiums to raise money for implants for others. He raised $180,000.

But his journey continues today. After three more cross country rides, Jacob and his foundation, Jacob’s Ride have funded cochlear implants for 16 individuals. But there are 12 on the waiting list and he can use your help.

You can share his story. You can attend the Celebration by the Bay on September 21st, or you can simply donate.  Imagine how beautiful the sound of a telemarketer calling truly is.

Please listen as we speak with Jacob (and for a minute, his father Randy) about his loss of hearing and how a kid from Admiral Heights is making a difference in the lives of many!
