Good morning, it’s Thursday, April 29th  2021 and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief.

Where the hell did April go? I swear it was just March! But boy the bi-polar Maryland weather really kicked in yesterday didn’t it? But I got a nice ride downtown to catch the Governor’s press conference in person and to talk to Lisa from Rasa Juice Shop for an upcoming Local Business Spotlight. And here we are in the home stretch, so let’s go.

About that press conference with Governor Hogan..first of all, the ASL interpreter completely stole the show. But the Governor’s message was not terribly surprising based n the CDC recommendations from the day before yesterday. Outdoor mask mandate is no more except for large ticketed events and indoors at businesses. And all restrictions on outdoor dining will end on Saturday. And as we did earlier, the Governor and County Executive go back and forth..the official word from County Executive Pittman is. “we’ll see”. So Anne Arundel still has the restrictions in place, but the capacity restrictions are lifted. Hogan also said that beginning Saturday, no pre-registration will be needed for any of the vaccine sites operated by the state. You can sign up for an appointment if you like or just walk or drive up and get your vaccine. And last night, I got a call from the City of Annapolis and they have more vaccines than appointments for today’s clinic at the Pip Moyer Rec Center. So, if you need the Moderna vaccine (first or second shot), head over to the Pip Moyer Rec Center between 10 am and 2 pm to get poked.

And vaccine-related, this made me smile. Is there NOTHING the library can’t do? The Anne Arundel County Public Libraries are doing double duty as vaccination sites. They’ve done it at the Annapolis Library, Brooklyn Park Library, and upcoming ones include May 1st at the Severn Library, May 25th at the Annapolis Mall Library, and back at Brooklyn Park on May 25th. I tell you, whoever hired Skip Auld as the CEO did a hell of a job. Today’s libraries are just incredible.

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 9th and Watermark has a great gift for mom. A cruise on the Catherine Marie.. this is their luxury yacht…no Harbor Queen for mom…and no offense to the Harbor Queen because I love her, but the 90-minute cruise will include a charcuterie box a momosa (see what they did there), and live entertainment. A table for 2 is only $150 and you can do the math for tables of 4 and 6; but the catch is that they need to have all reservations in by May 3rd to arrange the catering! So, if this has your mom’s name written all over it—head to and reserve your table.

Another happy post. Live music is coming back to Merriweather Post Pavilion! It kicks off on July 2nd and 3rd with the M3 Rock Festival featuring Kix and Night Ranger. Rod Stewart and Cheap Trick (yeah, imma be there) on August 11th. DMB on August 21st. Hall and Oates on September 18th. And a whole bunch more. So all I can say is yes!

And some sad news to wrap up. Well perhaps sad to some, but happy to others. Nowhere in Maryland ranked high enough to make Lawn Starter’s list of best towns for naked gardening. The top billing went to Miami. But we also didn’t make the list of the worst towns…the worst…Lincoln, Nebraska. So, Anne Arundel, we have our work cut out for us in the next year!

OK, that’s it for the news today.  As always, thank you all for listening and if you are somewhere where you can leave a rating or a review, please do. And make sure you let your friends, family, and colleagues know to FOLLOW us.  It really does help!

A quick thank you to the sponsors for today’s Daily News Brief– Solar Energy Services up in Millersville, and the Kristi Neidhardt Team of Northrop Realty, a Long and Foster Company.

It is Thursday so of course, we have Trevor from Annapolis Makerspace here with your Maker Minutes.   And of course George Young from DCMDVA Weather is here with your locally forecast weather report.  All of that in just about 60 seconds!
