Annapolis Alive Party At The Mall

One of the new sections of the Annapolis Mall (located outside of the city limits) will be transformed into a party for 'Annapolis Alive', an organization headed by probable mayoral candidate Chuck Weikel, and charged (amongst other things) with celebrating the tri-centennial anniversary of Annapolis' chartering. This is in sharp contrast to the 'Annapolis Asleep' party, where residents eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Lewnes' Steak House and immediately go begin to sleep off 10,000 calories.

The party takes place on Sunday, 1/28:

On Sunday, January 27, 2008, Annapolis Alive! celebrates three centuries of
Annapolis rich history at a major public event at Westfield Annapolis from 7-10

The three-hour party will feature top name
celebrities: Baltimore Raven Matt Stover, Annapolis Sailing hero Gary Jobson,
nationally known Rams Head favorite Leon Redbone, and the local R&B group,
Raw Hands.

The brand new section of the Westfield Annapolis
will be transformed for this community-wide 2008 kick-off of the Annapolis
Charter 300 Celebration. This one-of-a-kind party will be complete with terrific
entertainment, as well as food and beverages.

The evening will be accented by displays that commemorate Annapolis history over the past 300 years; the best of Annapolis art and photography, maritime & culture. Guests will be able to participate in exclusive shopping at some of Westfields newest

In case the food, fun, entertainment and shopping aren't
enough; there will also be gift give-aways, and a silent auction! The proceeds
from the auction will go to the Chesapeake Childrens Museum for scholarships to
be awarded to students (public, private and home school) for historical
Annapolis field trips.
