Dinner Under the Stars announces entertainment

| May 29, 2018

Dinner Under StarsStarting tomorrow, May 30th  restaurants on West Street under the back drop of St. Anne’s Church will be bringing back Annapolis’ favorite evening  of al fresco Dinner Under the Stars in historic downtown Annapolis.  They will be closing the first block of West Street on Wednesday evenings and filling it with cafe tables reminiscent of the open air cafes in Paris and the piazzas of Rome and Venice. Live music will softly fill the air, diners will enjoy the opportunity to dance in the street and special art exhibits will  appear. As the sun sets, an overhead light canopy adds to the ambience.
