Last Wednesday I took a little trip, this trip took me into 4 different state and brought 4 friends together. All of us were Facebook friends and we planned a little trip that involved me jumping on a plane and heading out east to meet up with one friend Amy that I met before once in WI and 2 friends that I had never met before. I first flew into DC on Wednesday where Mel picked me up at the airport. It was a raining afternoon so not much site seeing took place. Her family and I did go to a very nice local restaurant in Round Hill, Virginia where I had my first bite of the real McCoy seafood from the Eastern Shores. I had blue crab ravioli. It was to die for.
Thursday Amy, Mel and I went and toured Washington DC (more on that later). I had my first street truck polish sausage. That evening we headed into Maryland to meet up with Amy’s family where we stopped at The Point Crab House to have supper. The bloody mary I started out with was packed with a garden and who knew that old bay seasoning really was the cats ass on this drink.
The appetizers were awesome along with the main meal of the crab cake sandwich. I would highly recommend it. They had a one man band singing while we were eating and we found out the Foo Fighters are friends of owner and they frequent it. We didn’t get to run into them while we were there, maybe next time?

Friday we ventured to the beach. We had to stop at Seacrets: Jamaica USA for a pain in the ass, I had two thank you very much. This guy didn’t mind me having a couple.
I think I fell in love……with the ocean view!

Friday night we had a recommendation to try out a new place to eat. Barn 34, they have been open just over a year. Two places we went to recommended the fish tacos. Three of us got them and they were delish. I would highly recommend them too! The waitstaff was great, we got dessert, one piece of cake for the four of us to share for all of our Birthday’s and they even put a candle in it for us.

We stayed at Castle In The Sand what a nice place to sit on the balcony and enjoy the ocean view with a cocktail in a glass given to us by a very special friend. Thanks Amy, the wine tasted so much better in this great gift.

Saturday’s event was the main reason I made the trip. Oyster fest was going on at Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum . They had a vendor that was selling lobster rolls so I had to get one. I never had one and this was amazing!
I usually don’t eat oysters because the thought of them raw and slimy just doesn’t appeal to me but I of course had to try one so I had a steamed one and it wasn’t half bad, I could eat more of them.

After Oyster Fest we were invited to Amy’s parents house for supper and drinks at Brady’s Pub. It was so nice of them to welcome us into their home for some pizza and brewski’s along with some great conversation whether it was done by voice or text. This is one bar I would love to come back to.
My last and most favorite place to eat while I was on my little vacation was in Annapolis, MD at a little place called Chick and Ruth’s Delly. Where everyday they recite the Pledge Of Allegiance. We were lucky enough to be there on Sunday to do just that and what a honor it was! It just so happens Man Vs Food ate there so I was at a famous land mark. You can see Adam’s press conference here.
I ordered the Crab and Veggie omelet as I had to have my last bit of seafood before I left town and it was out of this world, I ate every last bit! Highly recommend this place.
I had a wonderful time eating my way through my vacation. If you are ever at any of these places I suggest you check them out.
