Cabbage and Cornbeef

No, I'm eating that but it beat saying "meat and potatoes" since it's finally come time for the whole reason I'm in town - The Annapolis Irish Festival.

Tonight is the early concert at the fairgrounds. Awesome bands like The Rovers, Rogues, and Albannach - how can I resist. And best of all: it's free if you get through the gate before 6pm.

Tomorrow is the actual festival. I'm so excited, good friends, great music, awesome food and beer! I foresee a hangover in my future.

Being back in MD for this week has been utterly relaxing. It's nice for a change to know exactly where anything I could possibly want can be found, to not get lost and to know where I can find a friend if I need one.

Two night ago my friends took me to a newish bar in town called the Mutiny Pirate Bar and Island Grille. Fun atmosphere (with the exception of the trivia deejay who was an absolute asshole so I would say avoid going on Wednesdays), great rum (lots of different kinds) and terrific food. I ordered The Henry Morgan - Rum Brined Slow Roasted Pulled Pork, Spiced Rum Barbecue Sauce, Cole Slaw. It was fabbulous with the exception of the cole slaw which was a bit funky for my taste but the pulled pork was to die for. I found a new rum that I like and suggested one they didn't have. I'll definitely visit again next time I'm in town.

I'm not sure that I'll post again before leaving out of here Sunday (it's looking to be a busy few days) so I want to send a HUGE thanks to my friends Jen and Ed for letting me crash their driveway and plug in so the cats could have some A/C!
