Good morning, it is Tuesday, September 12th, 2023, and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief presented by Annapolis Subaru and the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.

Man I don’t know about you, but yesterday was a Monday and a half. I can so relate to Bob Geldof and the Boomtown Rats. Well, we do have some news–so, shall we?

If anyone was at the City Council meeting the APD did not have a very good night at all–you can catch it on Facebook or YouTube and it was all during the public comments. Perhaps it was due in part to the most recent shooting in the City’s Eastport section. Yesterday afternoon, a man was shot three times and flown to shock trauma in serious condition but is expected to survive. Police believe he was in his 40s. They do not have any suspects and are investigating. It is the 17th shooting in the City this year excluding the murders–so that is about 2 people per month. And strangely, the Annapolis put out a release last night indicating that the victim called to say he was assaulted and police discovered he was actually shot. We spoke to several neighbors who all called 911 reporting a shooting or shots. A neighbor’s child witnessed it. An Eye On Annapolis reader contacted us and said they counted nine police cars responding from the station down Spa Road which seems a bit excessive for a mere assault.

In much better news. Chris’s Charcoal Pit is open! Two years and a few days ago they were put out of business by a tornado. And now they are open again at the K-Mart shopping center in Edgewater! Right now it is takeout only as they are getting their staff trained, but stay tuned for a grand re-opening. And I feel confident that I speak for everyone when I say welcome back!

Back on May 5th, we reported that Reynolds Tavern was for sale. At that time, it was supposed to be hush-hush and I was not supposed to have the link to the website marketing it as they were privately working the deal. As a courtesy, we pulled that article. But now it is back up. I assume after no one bit on the off-market sale, Hyatt Commercial Real Estate is taking it public for $4.7 million. Now this does NOT include Reynolds Tavern –the restaurant. It is the building and the land only. The property is pretty cool. it was a private residence and built in 1747 and through the years has been a library, tavern, boarding house, bank, and I have heard a house of ill repute! The National Trust for Historic Preservation owned it for about 30 years and then sold it to a private owner who still owns it today. If you buy it, you can be the only the third private owner since 1747. Pretty cool. 

The Annapolis Rotoract is throwing a party on Thursday at the Maritime Museum. Rock The Dock is their annual gala bash and this year it will benefit The Complete Player. Tickets are available on EventBrite, just search for Rock the Dock and know that tickets are all-inclusive with beer, wine, crushes, and an all-you-can-eat barbecue and live music by Loose Ties. And of course the requisite raffles and silent auction all for a great cause!
