We did finally escape into the great outdoors around 2:30 p.m., however. And since Annapolis turns into the city equivalent of a show pony in the spring time, it was absolutely gorgeous outside. But still, warm weather makes my body seize. And I pretty much looked like this after riding around in a top-down Jeep for most of the afternoon.
Warm weather woes aside, I did get to go to 1747 Pub twice in one day. That’s right. Twice. I’m living on the edge. I’m out of control. I’m a rebel without a cause. (Mostly because causes require having convictions. And convictions take effort.)
The first time was just a relaxed lunch date on the patio with the Mister, featuring the Green Peppercorn Tripel by The Brewer’s Art, which definitely lived up to the hype — spicy, sweet, crisp and surprisingly complex. Great recommendation by the Annapolis Homebrew Club. The second was for my best friend's (second) 30th birthday, under a gorgeous canopy of Cherry Blossoms I somehow hadn't noticed at lunch.
In spite of having to play the part of a responsible adult earlier in the day, it wasn’t a bad way to spend a Saturday.
