Around the House: May 2018
We didn’t start April out with showers. We had a beautiful day for Easter and Chef Mark and the kitchen staff did an amazing job with the wonderful brunch that we enjoyed.
Blessing of the Fleet will be held on Saturday, April 28th at 2:00 P.M. We are fortunate to have the Reverend Jeff Paulson to officiate and bagpiper Randy Welch returning again this year for the ceremony! Those who have boats on premises, please try to “dress” them or display your burgee proudly. If you can’t bring your boat to the club for the event, never fear-once again there will be vials of blessed water to take away and share with your vessel.
We will have our May flowers with our May Basket for us to enjoy. A Big Thank You to Leslie Lawton for taking care of this for us.
The question that has been asked is – “What is the difference between Tequila and Mezcal?” Do you know the answer? If you want to know the answer then join us on Saturday, May 12, from 6:00-8:00 for Vive Mexico! We will be tasting Tequila and Mezcal and have some very tasty dishes to go with them. Watch the Newsblast and the bulletin board for more details, or go to eastportyc.org/tequila. Reservations are required and the seating is limited.
The annual Mother’s Day brunch is on May 13th and reservations are required for this always popular event. Call the office to make them. More info at eastportyc.org/mothers.
The Blue Angels will be flying again this year, May 22 and 23. If you are new to Annapolis this is a work-day stopper of a show with the Angels flying directly over the clubhouse and close enough you feel you could touch their wings.
This is a restricted event for EYC members with limited guests. On Tuesday, EYC members and their immediate family (under the same roof are free), and accompanied guests ($10/each, no limit of guests on Tuesday only). CASH ONLY. On Wednesday, EYC members (free) and are limited to 2 per member number ($10/each). CASH ONLY. Read more at eastportyc.org/blues.
Have a good look at the calendar as we have frequent theme nights or events during the month that are not publicized - you just gotta look for them.
We value your comments and suggestions so please fill out a comment card when you receive it with your bill. You can also find them on the table by the hostess stand.

Blue Angels Return May 22-23
The fabulous Blue Angels are scheduled to reappear over the Severn River on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 22 and 23, for their traditional rehearsal and air show. The deck and yard at EYC are, obviously, among the finest spots in the area for an up-close view of the spectacular aerobatics.
This is understandably one of the most popular of EYC events, and this is a restricted event for EYC members* with limited guests, so please take note:
- On both Tuesday and Wednesday, EYC members and their immediate family (living under the same roof) are admitted free, and accompanied guests are $10/each (cash only).
- On Tuesday only, Wait Listers are invited as guests of the club at $10/each (cash only).
- Members who are entertaining aboard their boats in the marina are asked to provide the names of their guests to the office in advance, so their guests will not be charged and/or delayed.
Come and enjoy what most locals already know: that Tuesday is the better day to watch the show due to its longer duration and lesser crowds. Of course, all the same food and beverage will be available both days. You will need to check in at the gate to obtain your wristband to receive service.
The club will open at 11 a.m. both Tuesday and Wednesday, and a buffet-style lunch will be available. There will be ample seating on the lawn as well as on the deck and two lunch options will be available. Upstairs in the dining room, the lunch buffet ($18 adults, $9 kids) will feature hamburgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, baked beans, potato salad, macaroni salad, and anything else seasonal and delicious our chef comes up with. Down in the yard, it's backyard cookout-style, with a la carte hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, and hot hogs, served with potato salad, chips and a pickle.
The barbeque in the yard and service at the satellite bars will be cash only, so be sure to bring your wallet!Read more ...
