Around the House: January 2018

Around the House: January 2018

Theresa Somes

It is hard to believe that 2017 is coming to a close, but the House Committee Elves were busy getting our favorite club decorated for the holidays.

Thank You to Carey Kirk and all of the wonderful helpers that came to prep and help decorate. Everyone was able to kick back and enjoy the holiday decorations at the ‘Get Your Elf On!’ party along with great food and drink specials. We even had a special visit from Mrs. Clause who joined in the fun.

Thank You to Nancy Elsaesser for making the Gingerbread party a happy success. All the children decorated and created beautiful houses. Santa visited and the children sang jingle bells to him. She is so thankful and blessed by everyone who has supported this event. She knows many families have made this a Christmas tradition and it's very exciting to see the children grow from decorators to volunteers. Jean Gribbin (Wally too) who have been on her team from the beginning. A special thank you to everyone, the builders who made this possible on Wednesday night "Thank You". The staff was fabulous and very helpful. She loves it when our elf participates. Good job everyone, Merry Christmas.

The EYC 6th Annual Cookie Exchange was another sweet success! There were more bar judges this year than ever to taste some of the best cookies around. Chocolate chips were the favorite ingredient this year (necessitating a category change from Best Store Bought to Best Chocolate Chip cookie).

And the winners are:

  • Best EYC theme: Joanne Lavender-Oatmeal/Dried Rum Cranberry with Toasted Walnuts Cookie
  • Best Holiday theme: tie- Quinn & Zane Barone”yum, yum, yum" cookie and Clare- Cherry & Honey Almond Shortbread
  • Best Chocolate Chip cookie: Hadley Chadwick- Chocolate chip Cookie
  • Best Chocolate cookie: Barbara Small- Chocolate chip "Santa Fav" Cookie
  • Best Tasting cookie: Liz Filter- Pistachio Thumbprints with Strawberry Jam
  • Commodore choice: Jill Rajaee- White Cap Cookie

Thanks to all who participated in baking and judging!

We will end 2017 in EYC style with a great party of music, dancing, food and beverage. We will welcome the arrival of 2018 with a champagne toast and midnight fireworks.

After a little rest up time House Committee will kick off 2018 with a Wine & Tapas Tasting on Friday, January 19th. Watch the Newsblast and bulletin board for more details.

Are you looking for something to add some excitement to a brunch? Tired of going to your brother’s house for brunch and getting a Bloody Mary that looks like a salad bar? Does the Mimosa seem dull and drab to you, while you’re in the throughs of winter? You need to attend the EYC Speakeasy Brunch Cocktail event on Sunday, January 28th where our own mixologist Mike Thompson will add some excitement for us. So begin your brunch on a high note and come on down to the Speakeasy. Watch the Newsblast and bulletin board for more details.

In the dining room Lobster Night returns on Saturdays. You will need to make your reservations by Thursday before each Saturdays lobster night. This is a huge event and sells out.

As with every holiday season we’ll keep to our commitment of remembering the less fortunate in our community. We will take donations for the Lighthouse Shelter and the local SPCA shelter. We have 2 donation boxes in the foyer and will remain there until January 15th. Please check the bulletin board for the items that are needed to help 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.

Reminder: the House Committee meets every month on the first Wednesday at 6:30 in the conference room. Because of the clubhouse closing for maintenance, however, our next meeting will be on January 10 instead. All are welcome to attend a meeting and see if you would like to join us on a regular basis.

Upcoming Events for February:

  • February 10th – Speakeasy-Mardi Gras
  • February 13th – Mardi Gras
  • February 14th – Valentine’s Day

Watch the Newsblast and Bulletin Board for more great events brought to you by House Committee.

Happy New Year from your House Committee!

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.

Reminder: the House Committee meets every month on the first Wednesday at 6:30 in the conference room. All are welcome to attend a meeting and see if you would like to join us on a regular basis.

Date change – May’s meeting will be held on May 9th at 6:30 in the conference room.

Blue Angels Return May 22-23

blue angelsThe 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 Tuesday, EYC members and their immediate family (living under the same roof) are free, and accompanied guests are $10/each (cash only) with no limit of guests on Tuesday.
  • On Wednesday, EYC members are free and are limited to 2 guests per member number at $10/each (cash only). 
  • EYC Waitlist Members are invited to come on Tuesday as guests at $10.00 each but will not be able to bring any guests.

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 on the lawn and service at the satellite bars will be cash only, so be sure to bring your wallet!
