The Fall Beers are Coming!
Just because our local Oktoberfests have been cancelled along wth the real Oktoberfest is no reason that we can't start thinking about the delicious fall beers and the team at Katcef Brothers Inc teases us a little bit with a Spaten-Devils Backbone collaboration. We also hit on Cutwater's international tequila award and marvel at how well Bud LIght Seltzer contines to do with the intro of three nw flavors--pineapple, cranberry, and grapefruit. September 18th is Global Beer Responsibility Day and I am searching Hallmark for a card... but locally, you want to stay tuned to Eye On Annapolis and Katcef Brothers for a fun promotion this fall that could score you a wild tailgate party....when we can do that again! :( Enjoy and cheers!

Sing Second Sports--the ultimate Navy Sports podcast
Sing Second Sports popped on my radar about 2 months ago and after two episodes I was hooked! These guys have found a great way to dig deep into Navy Athletics. From football to baseball to basketball to water polo to intramural soccer. Academy grads, Ward Carroll and Chris Servello are joined by former USNA PAO John Schofield to bring it all to you with a fan's ardor and an insider's connection. We sit down, and talk about the podcast, the sports (had no idea there were THAT many), their past guests, and future hopefuls. Oh and we crystal ball the Navy Vs Notre Dame game scheduled for Labor Day weekend!

Catching up with Travis Pastrana and his latest venture, Circuit 199
Travis Pastrana never rests. If he is not racing, jumping, building a stunt, or chasing down his two daughters, you can probably be sure he's working on something new. And we caught up with him to find out! Enter Circuit 199 in Sudlersville. It's a state of the art racing facility to train top drivers and to teach the new batch. It's a Progression Park where FMX, BMX, and skateboarders can hone their skills and take them to the next level. And it's a Pump Track and skills course to promote fitness to youth using the track for bicycles, skateboards, or scooters. And of course there is plenty of other entertainment planned as well. When Travis brought Nitro Circus here in 2017 it meant the world to him to finally perform at home. And now he wants to continue giving back to Maryland--his home. Circuit 199 could open as early as next spring, but the target is to be open by 2022. Have a listen and get excited!

SECU and some financial advice for the Class of 2020
The Class of 2020 is ending their high school or college life in a weird time. The job market is questionable. The stock market is questionable. And we are in the midst of a pandemic. Without a doubt, it is a tough time; but also without a doubt, our young adults graduating this year will overcome this and thrive--we're counting on it. And today we have some help. Sarah Ryan is the Head of Community Outreach for SECU (formerly known as the State Employee's Credit Union) and she has perhaps the greatest gift we can give our graduates--some financial thoughts to savings and the future. We talk about the work SECU is doing in the community and for their members (it's pretty easy to be a member); but she gives some solid suggestions for gifts for today's graduates that will change their financial world!

Moving forward with The Village at Providence Point
Last September, we spoke with Larry Bradshaw who is the CEO of National Lutheran Communities & Services and the man behind the project now known as The Village at Providence Point in Annapolis. A lot has happened since then and today, we check in with Bradshaw as the project seems to be headed into the final stretch of the approval process. Today we learned that they has submitted their plans to the City of Annapolis after working with the Stop Crystal Springs (opposition group) and the City to address most of the concerns. There are two remaining concerns that are still undecided as it is a decision (guidance) that needs to be provided by the City. If all goes well, Bradshaw thinks that construction might be able to start in the early part of 2022. While on the same property, this is NOT anywhere close to the same project as Crystal Springs. Along with a change of names to The Village at Providence Point, this project has been downsized in the number of residents and in the general footprint of the project. Have a listen!

Fighting Cabin Fever with Dr. Tom Muha
We've been stuck in our houses for the past five years now...or at least it feels like it. As every possible commercial has mentioned in the past few weeks, "we are in uncertain times."

Tim talks with Dr. Tom Muha, founder of the Propel Institute and weekly columnist for the Capital for the past thirty years, about how to change your frame of mind to meet this unprecedented challenge.

Second, this was all recorded from a Zoom call. And third, most all of what we wanted to talk about has been canceled or postponed! So, we punted and talks about coping, about what Budweiser is doing from a corporate level to help out America. And what Katcef Brothers is doing to help out our own community. Let's just say that Betsy Ross has NOTHING on these guys! Please have a listen!

One Love Annapolis and perseverance with Steve Samaras
We are all in this together! As businesses are (for the most part) shuttered, we wanted to catch up with Steve Samaras from Zachary's Jewelers to talk about a video series he has created and to find out how Zachary's is doing during the COVID-19 Pandemic. If there ever was a man who sees the positive in a tough situation it is Steve who was burned out of his store 15 years ago the day after Thanksgiving, survived the recession of 2008 and now the COVID-19 virus. Aside from keeping all of his employees working, to cutting Constance Polamalu (who joined us on the call) loose to develop a new e-commerce business model with virtual appointments, while maintaining the Zachary's model of customer service. But more importantly, with some time on his hands, Steve and his wife Challie have been visiting their favorite places around town and explaining why there is such love--a One Love for Annapolis. If you are a bit down about this pandemic, have a listen, and be sure to check out the videos on Steve's Facebook Page --the link is below! Videos: https://bit.ly/OneLoveAnnapolis

COVID-19...Voices from the Community
We are in uncharted waters, folks. Between cable news and social media, there is an avalanche of information, innuendo, and speculation coming in. It's exhausting and scary. So John and Tim decided to practice some social distancing and call a bunch of people to talk about what's going on over Facebook Live. It was a busy one. Go to All Annapolis on Facebook to watch Saturday's broadcast. We started with Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot to see what the state has been doing up to this point and what is planned next. Steuart Pittman, Anne Arundel County Executive, was up next to talk about business assistance as well as public safety, followed by Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley who let us know what this this means to our tourism-based business community. Katie Redmiles of Maryland Hall for the Performing Arts introduced "Pay It Forward to the Arts" to help both businesses affected, as well as our arts community. Monica Alvarado, owner of Bread and Butter Kitchen in Eastport, talked about what they are doing to help the community and their employees during this business shutdown. Heritage Baptist Church, on Forest Drive, has always been front and center when it comes to meeting the needs of the community, and this time is no exception. Pastor Scott Shelton talks about their food pantry and the best way people can contribute. What does this mean for businesses? Jared Littman, owner of K&B True Value and former Ward 5 Alderman, talks about what they are doing to serve the community as an essential business and what he is doing to protect employees. Small business owners are being hit particularly hard. Denise Pearson, owner and proprietor of Paradise Float Spa in Eastport, has shut down completely until this crisis ends. What does this mean to people in her shoes? Jeff Jacobs, owner of the iconic family business, Carrol's Creek, has also shut down restaurant for the duration. Some of his employees have been with him for decades, and wait until what you hear what is doing for them! And finally, we end on a positive note when we chat with Kimario Ballyntine, a server at 49 West, located in Inner West Street. Yes, he's out of work amidst a global pandemic, but he is incredibly upbeat and positive, and his attitude is infectious! In a good way.

The 2020 National Cannabis Festival
We're talking weed again! Caroline Phillips joins us for the fourth time (even though we said third when recording) to talk about the National Cannabis Festival coming to RFK on April 18th. Now in it's 5th year, the festival has grown from a single day with 5,000 attendees to a two day affair with a FREE policy summit on the Friday April 17th to the festival on the 18th expected to draw more than 25,000 advocates, educators, legislators, and those just looking to learn a lot more. Yes it is a fun time, but as the push for legal cannabis moves across the US, there are more and more questions and a greater need for education! We also hop on the phone with two industry experts....Lucas Hale from Curaleaf, a national company that is involved with every step of marijuana from growing to dispensing to distributing. And also, Warren Lemley from Peake Releaf which is a locally owned dispensary in Rockville, MD. Both were a wealth of information and both will be at the festival on April 18th! As to the festival, this year you can expect more advocacy, more education, more music, more vendors, more food, and pretty much more of everything. Have a listen and get all of your information on the National Cannabis Festival website! Note to self: The cannabis industry is very punny! LINKS: National Cannabis Festival Peake Releaf Curaleaf
