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!
Hot Fun in the Summer
It's that wonderful time of the year: Music on the Deck Season! And the lineup is great.
The fun begins this year on Sunday, June 7, with our old friend Matt McConville and his trio. Matt and his group are popular with EYCers; if you aren't yet familiar with his eclectic style and repertoire, come find out why.
We'll celebrate Fathers' Day on June 21 with an appearance by the Sunny Isle Blues Band, another perennial favorite, to accompany a fabulous Chicken & Ribs Barbeque (more details soon).
July will bring live music from Major Company for the July Fourth Independence Day Party, and our Sunday afternoon sessions for the month will include the always-popular Ellis Woodard on July 19 and the New Orleans-style blues of the Stubby Knuckles trio, who were such a hit last summer, on July 26.
August performances are still being booked, but it's not too early to mark your calendar for the Kings of Crownsville on August 2. The season (sadly) concludes with the Tiki Barbarians on August 16 and the Mike McHenry Tribe on September 13.
As always, the music starts at 4 p.m. and it's a guaranteed good time. See you there!
Let Them Eat ... Small Plates
... and drink fine wine
Mesdames et monsieurs, get a jump start on Bastille Day with our Wine Bistro & Cafe on Sunday, July 12, 4 to 6 p.m. in the dining room.
Rather than compete with outside events on the actual day of the 14th, we're having a tasting of French wines with paired small plates to complement the wines.
Our AGM Jesse Scott is bringing in a first-class wine tasting presented by Alison of Bacchus Distributors to present the red and white wine selections including Pierre Sparr Riesling, Perrin Cotes du Rhone Blanc. Perrin Cotes du Rhone Rouge, and Mas las Chevaliere Cabernet Savignon.
Chef Henrí (Henry any other day) has created the perfect pairings for them with an exceptional series of small plates including Octopus Carpaccio (Riesling), Seabass (white Rhone), Braised Lamb Shoulder (red Rhone), and French Cheese (cabernet).
The cost of this palate-pleasing event is $30.00 per person + tax + gratuity, or $37.80. You may reserve online, through the office, or at the bar, but do it soon as this will very likely sell out, and quickly.
Reservations must be made and paid by Thursday July 9th at 3 p.m. The event will held be in the dining room, but regular food & bar service will be available in the bar and on the decks. Still hungry after the event? - the kitchen will be serving dinner until 8:00 pm.
This should be a fun and toothsome way to end the weekend. It has been rumored that Napoleon himself may be attending? Nonetheless, Up the Republic!
You'll want to make reservations early for this, as attendance is strictly limited by the dining room capacity and walk-ins cannot be accommodated.
THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT. SORRY, WALK-INS CANNOT BE ACCOMMODATED. To inquire about a spot on a wait list, please contact the office, 410-267-9549.
