Come along with us as we pick up some gifts at Scout & Molly’s, South Moon Under and About Faces Day Spa & Salon.

With nearly 30 retail shops, 18 dining options, and 4 fitness and beauty businesses, anyone’s Santa List can be fulfilled!

And speaking of Santa, he has taken up residence in his cottage at the Annapolis Towne Centre and is seeing only the good boys and girls by appointment! He has some parties planned as well and is looking forward to taking photos with your favorite pets as well. Appointments are for your convenience, but walk-ups are also very welcome!

Plenty of free parking is a hallmark of the Annapolis Towne Centre and this holiday, they have added free valet parking with a relaxing valet lounge for you while you wait for your car–thank you Brothers Services Company.

There is a FREE Fire and Ice Festival on December 7th, a Festive Friday on December 13th with sales and discounts throughout the center. And a wonderful Holiday Art Pop Up Shop by the Annapolis Arts Alliance!

Snowy winter ahead? DMV Weather has some insight! (E-151)

So, are we in for a cold and snowy winter?  The Annapolis area is hard to forecast. Thankfully, we have George Young from DMV Weather to set us straight!  He has been forecasting for the Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief for more than two years and only had one real miss–not a bad record at all!

So, today, we sit down with him to find out what all is involved in making a long range forecast for Annapolis and Anne Arundel County…and most importantly–his thoughts about what is in store for us over the next 12 to 16 weeks!

Have a listen!

Paula Poundstone…a comic legend returns (November 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….we don’t have any kind of plan. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Paula Poundstone is back for her annual December visit to Rams Head on Stage on December 6 for two shows. Tim and Paula chat about climate change, Facebook fights, the tense political climate, feisty daughters, passive-aggressive Thanksgiving attacks, and, of course, cats. Paula also cranks out a hilarious weekly podcast, No One Listens to Paula Poundstone and is a frequent panel guest on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!

Links:

Thank you to Ann Alsina, principal at Covington-Alsina in Annapolis, for allowing Tim to take over your conference room for a couple of hours. And we apologize in advance, because he plans on making a habit out of it.

Maryland Health Benefit Exchange (November 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. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

When it comes to health insurance, Tim is an idiot. In fact, let’s face it, a lot of people are. Everyone has a strong opinion about the Affordable Care Act, but few could actually explain what it means. That’s where the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange comes in. Tim sits down with Executive Director, Michelle Eberle, who patiently explains what the MHBE does and what it means to your healthcare as a Marylander.
