Social events for EYC club members include a number of monthly events and special holiday observances. The annual Blessing of the Fleet in May, Founders’ Day in November, a gala Holiday Party in early December, and the now-signature New Year’s Day Pot Luck Extravaganza are some of our fun events for members, plus a variety of terrific (and delicious) events including a Bull & Oyster Roast, Crab Feast, and more. Of course, we have the best seats for the annual performances of the Navy’s Blue Angels during USNA Commissioning Week, and the July Fourth fireworks display.
EYC also has plenty of family-oriented events, including monthly Family Movie Nights, Junior Sailing events and cookouts, and many children’s events such as the spring Easter Egg Hunt, summer Ice Cream Social, and the Gingerbread House Building Party in December.Want to get in on the ground floor for the fun? Join House Committee! Meetings are held first Wednesdays of the month, 6:30 p.m. Or contact Co-Chairs Carey Kirk and Mark Jones. Your ideas and energy are welcome!
Time for February Fun
Now that we've rested up during January, February is filled with many different events to help us through another month of winter. Firstly, please note that the Rum & Cigars Night we told you of last month has been moved to Saturday, March 5. You'll find the details in the March View from the Bridge, in addition to flyers in the clubhouse and on the website.
Sunday, February 7, brings us to the mother of all sporting events, the Super Bowl. Starting at 4 o'clock that afternoon we'll hold our annual viewing party; the TVs and sound system will be at full tilt, we'll have our traditional stadium fare as bar specials, and bar QB Juanita will offer up your beverages of choice. Bring your cash – there will be a pool or two for wagering the outcome by Tom Johnson, and a statistics contest game by Clayton Miller.
Tuesday, February 9, brings us an early Mardi Gras party. Bring your Krewe and parade beads down to the club for food specials ala Louisiana from Chef Henry, drink specials from Krewe Chief Juanita, and get your Cajun on!
Saturday, February 13, brings our second annual Speakeasy, themed after Papa Hemingway's novel 'Islands in the Stream.' As before Mixologist Mike Thompson will present three of the old man's favorite Cuban inspired cocktails, the back-story for each one and of course a healthy sample of each.
For the bargain price of $29 you'll be served the three cocktails by fellow members, sample Cuban-inspired food pairings, and receive a 2016 highball glass with the burgee and year etched in. When you make your reservation with payment you'll receive the password for entrance to the Speakeasy; seating is limited to 48 attendees so do not delay.
