Beyond Annapolis East and West

Entertainment fun is not only here is Annapolis. Last night I took a ride up to Baltimore to attend opening night of Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps playing at The Hippodrome Theatre. Read my review at The Hippodrome is about a 45 minute drive sans traffic from downtown Annapolis. It’s easy to park. They have an indoor lot attached to the building and if you arrive early you could grab a bite at their cafe or walk across the street to Starbucks for a coffee and snack. Not far away, just a few blocks, is Lexington Market with an array of fast restaurant food choices. When I was a child Lexington Market was where you went in Baltimore for food fresh from the farm but that’s all changed although Farmers’ markets have made a comeback. Return back inside the theater and admire its history. It used to host burlesque shows before it became a movie theater and then was closed down. It is now marvelously restored and appreciated.
As we head into summer weather, sometimes it’s pleasant to sit back and be entertained where there is air conditioning! But if you are looking for some outdoor fun this weekend come by to the Chesapeake Bay Wine Festival at Terrapin Park in Stevensville. What’s Up? will be there sporting our very own booth. With me on the first shift of the day Saturday at noon will be Rik Ferell who writes the Back Beat Blog. There should be some good food to sample, fine crafts, wood turning, photography and more.
