Eastport a Rockin

This past weekend Kelly, myself and our respective families ventured down to Eastport to partake in the time honored tradition of Easport-a-Rockin.
Jess Pachler, Director and her team of volunteers worked tirelessly to organize, promote and execute yet another truly successful event. In fact, for the first time since I have been attending, there was a line to get into the festival. It may have been the time of day or a testament to its growing popularity.

Mike and I were also joined by newbie Annapolitans/EAR Virgins, Dave Watson & Jennifer Meslar (pictured somewhere on this post). It was great weather, great vendors, great music & an overall great time.

At first we were not psyched to be greeted by this line, but it moved along fairly quickly. Thanks to the fabulous volunteers!

Here are two of my favorites, sadly I didn't get there names, but I do believe the one on the left could take home the Most Dedicated Beer Truck Volunteer Award. He wanted to make sure the beer tasted good before serving it to the innocent public. Thank you safety conscious volunteer!

***New Product and its a Must Try****

Sloop Betty Vodka was being served as the main ingredient to one my new favorite summer drinks, the Moscow Mule. I don't know if it was the Sloop Betty or the bartenders, but my Moscow Mule was potent and I liked it! Sloop Betty can be found at most of the local Liquor Retailers in the area. Check it out and support a local Maryland company.

Did you know...

Hmm, Skinny Dark & Stormy, I like it!

Our friendly and dedicated bartenders!

Kelly's Comments: Our family too had a good time at Eastport a Rockin. We drove the boat to Eastport with all three kids and walked to the festival. It was a great! Although I have to be honest and say that I don't think I will bring my children next year. The festival's focus is on the music (which is loud, as it should be) and on the libations. After the moonbounce and a few arts and crafts, there is not much for kids to do. However, if you live downtown or in Eastport and can get your family there with little committment, it is a fun way to spend and hour or two.
