MINIs by the Bay Run

Drivers meeting will start at 8:45 AM and we will depart the McDonald's parking lot at 9:00 AM.

The run starts off with a quick tour of Annapolis back roads leading us south and eventually ending up near the Chesapeake Bay for lunch at Abner's Crabhouse in North Beach, MD (Website). After lunch, we'll then motor down, around, and back up to PG County where we reach our final leg of twisties, ending at Rita's Ice Cream stand to grab a custard, Italian ice, Blendini, Misto or Gelati before heading home for the evening.

The ending point is conveniently located close to Rt. 50 / 450 and 301.

Update - Restaurant changed to Abner's Crabhouse. The establishment has asked we let them know in advance if people want crabcakes, sandwiches, etc. I'm going to email all those RSVP for info. I then have to tell them next week what we want. We don't all have to want crabcakes but they want to plan so they have enough on hand for our group.

    Road advisory: Pay no attention to the old white mini you may encounter on 50 in the AM as he is on an independent mission on the eastern shore to combat the low blood cholesterol levels he current has. Thrahsers, Nicoboli's, and Crabs will be the weapons of choice. Have a great run guys and gals.

    2 · July 26, 2013

    • Kimberly

      Enjoy your trip! Eat some Thrashers for me.

      July 26, 2013

      I'll be at the Baltimore car show in a week Mark! I will dedicate one of my multiple buckets of fries to you Kim :) extra vinegar

    • Nikki

      As sorry guys. Our life has been too dang crazy. I'm in need of a run with my mini peeps. Trust I'm extremely disappointed in myself. Been way too long. Dislike. Dislike. Dislike.

  • erica

    Hey Mark, was your last comment for Celia? It shows me as a yes.

    July 22, 2013

    • Mark S.

      Yes it was for Celia as I don't have her on the RSVP list.

    July 22, 2013

  • rockinMini

    Hi - I've been out of town, so unable to respond - I would also prefer a salad if they have one. On-line menu did not seem like the full list.. I will keep it simple. Sorry for my delayed response.

    July 22, 2013

  • Mark S.

    There is time for crabs! Please disregard my email saying there wasn't. :-)

    As for landlovers there isn't much since its a seafood restaurant by the Bay.

    July 21, 2013

  • erica

    Something not-seafood for me. Any chance they have salads too?

    July 21, 2013

  • Cecilia A W.

    Sorry I'm so late. I will pick something not crab.

    July 21, 2013

  • Ray H.

    I would really love to do crabs! I also don't want to be a party pooper so if I am the only one eating crabs I will pass them up and go for the crab cake sandwich or dinner. BUT 1st choice is definitely crabs!

    July 21, 2013

  • Rita

    I'll have the crab cake sandwich.

    July 21, 2013

  • Will S

    Yes, I intend to have crabs. That’s a long way to go to NOT have crabs (for those who can consume seafood) . A couple of questions:

    • Any idea of the prices (of crab cakes)? No prices are on online menu. I keep little-to-no cash on me and want to make sure I bring enough (I assume using a CC with such a large group might be a PITA for them).
    • “20% gratuity added on 6 persons or more” I assume this will apply to us(?)
    • What’s the estimated lunch time? Trying to make sure I eat the right amount for breakfast
    • What’s the estimated end time of the run? I have to be someplace in the early eve, want to make sure I can get back home in time.

    Thanks.

    • Kimberly

      Crab cakes fluctuate depending on the market prices of crab but as of today they are:

      Sandwich - $15.95
      Dinner - $22.95

      Crabs per dozen are:

      $55 - Large
      $32 - Mixed sizes

      Yes, 20% gratuity will be added to our receipts. Receipts will be done by each table so we won't end up with one ginormous tab.

      Our lunch reservation is for 11:30 AM

      The drive will end at Rita's around 2:00 PM.

    • Will S

      Update: I'm going to go for crabcakes and not crabs. I'd rather not be on a time limit when fighting with my food :-)

    If the plan is to go to a restaurant on the eastern shore, I'd suggest Waterman's in Rock Hall, it's a really nice place. http://www.watermanscrabhouse.com/home/

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
