Summertime Blog Boatyard Bar & Grill in Annapolis

Naval_academy_mids_at_Boatyard_Bar__Grill Summer at the Boatyard Bar & Grill

September and lots to write to you about..............

Before Fin and the Sailer girls head off to school we got them to WRNR to do a radio ad. They have done so about 8 or 9 years now.   Fin, Morgan and Lilly Sailer at the station. Of course Eastport Pirate Tom Weaver is the voice of the Boatyard and Tom with WRNR producer/DJ Rob do an amazing job.

The third of our big outdoor charity events was mid-August - the Boatyard CRAB Cup to benefit CRAB - Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating for those of all ages with disabilities including wounded warriors. This regatta was followed up later that week with the CRAB Annapolis Police Dept Youth Sailing Camp for at risk kids. What a great group!! G and me with Title Sponsor Annapolis Volvo’s Michelle Eichorn at the afterparty featuring Misspent Youth - amazing band. Thank you, Michelle!!!  And of course, Mt. Gay Rum and Red Stripe Beer among others.   Me posing with our Boatyard team, GM Kevin and servers Gabby and Michael.   Our Captain and crew on Juice, very respectable showing less than a minute behind the other Alerion that races in every regatta. Good going Dave.  Enjoy the pictures, more on our site Boatyard Bar & Grill gallery.

Dick's Blog: Eastport Annapolis highlights

Boatyard-Whales The whales!!

Hello from the Boatyard!! It’s July and we are in the thick of summer and loving it. In the “land of pleasant living” as they used to say on the Natty Boh jingle-in the 70s. Where have all the years (flowers) gone? Yikes! The Boatyard is cranking and it’s great to be full every day. We appreciate your patronage and are working hard to continue to deserve it. 77,000 crab cakes sold last year. It’s a high bar but you’re helping us beat it. And you’re shipping those crab cakes online nationwide to your Uncle Louie in Omaha and as corporate gifts to your important clients in Sacramento. Thanks!

Our second big event, Bands In the Sand at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s beautiful Merrill Center, in mid-June was an amazing success. Best ever. Sold out in a week or so. Great bands, food, drinks, weather, sponsors, guests, boats, etc. Thank you!   We raised record setting funds for CBF to do their great work to Save the Bay, and you know by now that the Bay is getting so much better!! Thank you CBF- its staff, supporters, and those with the political will to help us leave a better Bay for our kids.

Boatyard Crab Cakes shipped all over the US - Hopetown Music Fest - Happy New Year!

crab-cakes-to-ship-onlin_20180102-001152_1

Have to write a year end blog, right?

Boatyard crab cakes shipped all over the US - that's a day's shot of crab cake prep just before Christmas - almost every state got at least one order between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We have now sold this year over 70,000 crab cakes.  Wow - Chef George you da man!

We joined the FoodyDirect platform offering the best and most iconic specialty foods from around the nation.  Customers go on our site or theirs to order.  Chef ensures they arrive overnight fresh, cold (never frozen), ready to cook.   Sous chef Nestor Gonzalez is supervising the five trips it took to get them all on the UPS truck!Crab cakes online shipping boxes

So how did we partner with FoodyDirect?

.....talk about 6 degrees of separation.  I was attending a Friends of St John’s College Board meeting and Michael Smith (a founder of White House Black Market and now owner of South Moon Under) said he had met Brad Koenig of FoodyDirect.  Brad mentioned to Michael about taking Microsoft public in 1986 when he was with Goldman Sachs.  Michael brought up my name as a friend from Annapolis who was also involved in the Microsoft deal.  (It was a joint Goldman Sachs/Alex Brown managed deal).  Brad said he remembered me from way back when.  Long story short I contacted him and he came by the Boatyard and had our crab cakes.  We shipped him some to his home in Palo Alto and we became a FoodyDirect provider.  How did he start the company?  After retiring from Goldman he happened to be in NYC walking to his favorite New York bagel store.  He said to himself “why can’t I get these bagels tomorrow in Palo Alto.”  He and his chef brother started the company and well, now he can.  We are proud to be a part of the FoodyDirect portfolio of the best. 

Winter is here but we have passed the winter solstice and days are already getting longer-starting Dec 22.  The end of rockfish season has passed. The morning skies are amazing.....  Not a lot of boats on the Bay except AYC Frostbite sailing series on Sundays, the pilot launch taking pilots to merchant ships going into Baltimore and several watermen heading out or an occasional hardy soul trying to shed cabin fever.  I love the gray days actually with the only color being the red and green marks in the entrance to Back Creek.  Our friend, singer-songwriter Scott Kirby, wrote a great song about the gray days on the coast of Maine with the only color being one float from a lobster pot that was left over from summer-love the image.

The Boatyard is one of the 10 Most Famous Sailor's Bars in the World!

Boatyard-famous-Sailors-ba_20171201-224327_1

SailUniverse has named the Boatyard as one of the 10 Most Famous Sailors Bars in the World.

When owner Dick Franyo envisioned the Boatyard Bar & Grill, he saw it as a place where the casual sailor or Kiwi pro, avid boater or yacht owner, boat mechanic, fisherfolk and general lovers of the Chesapeake lifestyle would sit at the bar casually chatting up the last regatta or sharing briny tales of the big one that got away.

Boatyard bar & grill named one of the 10 most Famous Sailors Bars in the World by SailUniverse.
