Gameday looks a little different in 2020. Most sporting events are being held without fans and regular tailgating opportunities are few and far between. Transition with ease this season as you catch the game from the best seat in the house – your couch! It is easy to still have a good time and enjoy the game, no matter where you are, with help from the Annapolis Town Center. It’s your party, which means YOU call the shots, YOU pick the schedule, and YOU make the menu. Let the retailers on property help create the best, customized gameday experience from the comfort of your own home.

You can never go wrong ordering a classic burger and your choice in savory sides — apple cider slaw, sweet potato fries, or garlic mashed potatoes. Plus, we all know beer is a must on gameday! 

Neo Pizza

Pizza is the perfect way to fuel yourself through four quarters. Neo Pizza offers a variety of artisan pies to meet every craving.

If this year has taught us anything, it is to never take for granted the ability to get outside, enjoy the fresh air, and connect with others. This summer, the Annapolis Town Center unveiled three new open-air gathering spaces (The Green, The Patio, and The Garden) that provided guests with somewhere to take in events and enjoy the company of others in a safe and healthy way. Collaborating with popular tenants and local businesses, the Town Center worked toward becoming a favorite go-to destination, offering visitors more than just retail options. 

In the Open

Keeping in line with physical distancing guidelines, each space featured fun decor to match the tone and vibe of the weekly featured event. Thursday’s Vinyl’s & Vino in The Garden consisted of a night under the twinkling lights, enjoying awesome cocktails by Vintage Views: The Wandering Bar and live tunes spun by DJ Crawdads. Dinner on the Boulevard hosted by Ziki’s Japanese Steakhouse provided guests with two seating opportunities to change up their same old dinner plans for an evening under the stars, complete with the soothing sounds of Larry Lay, the Piano Man. Sketch Night hosted by ArtFarm Studios enticed some newcomers to the property as they expanded their creative portfolio by sketching a living, costumed model. Then, every Saturday morning, Yoga Factory took to The Green to provide a complimentary vinyasa yoga session for guests of all ages and levels.  

It is safe to say that these fun, new, and exciting events were definitely a game-changer at the property. Guests and residents enjoyed them so much that Annapolis Town Center has decided to continue hosting some of them throughout the month of September. So, be sure to check out their events page for updates! Plus, a lot of fun and festive experiences are on the horizon to enjoy this fall and holiday season. Stay tuned!

Share some of your summer highlights from the property on Instagram and Facebook and get ready for more fun times to come here in Annapolis.

Autumn is here. While it may still be warm outside, the kids are heading back to school, football is starting up, and before you know it, it’ll be time to set the clocks back. This time of year is full of treats to keep you cozy as the temperature drops and the leaves change. Whether you’re planning to fill your weekends with yummy fall recipes or craving a cup of joe, it can all be found at the Town Center. Let our retailers help you get prepared for the new season and add some spice to your life.

Baltimore Coffee & Tea

Sure, coffee is an all-year-long obsession for most, but it sure does taste a bit sweeter when it’s cooler out. As the calendar changes, so can your taste buds. So why not order something new next time you go on a caffeine run? Baltimore Coffee & Tea has a wide variety of roasts from all over the world. You’re guaranteed to find a new favorite blend the next time you visit. Our seasonal coffee suggestions are Pumpkin Spice (of course), Cinnamon Sticky Bun, and Caramel Apple!

Arhaus

Now that you’ve had your coffee, you’ll want to make sure your home has a cozy fall feel to it. From the decor to the fridge! Add accent pieces all around your living spaces to keep that warm feeling with you throughout the day. Who doesn’t love a great seasonal pillow and throw blanket? Or a pumpkin scented candle? A quick trip to Arhaus will allow you to transform your space in an afternoon without breaking the bank.

Whole Foods

Baking during the fall months has a different feel to it. There’s something about sweet smells spreading through a cozy kitchen that helps bring people together and make lasting memories. Whole Foods has all of the ingredients you need to make yourself an at-home autumn bakery. Think apple, cinnamon, pumpkin, caramel, and so much more. The options are endless when you’re in charge of the menu. Spend a weekend bonding with loved ones and discovering sweet options to return to throughout the season.

Annapolis Town Center opened its doors this summer to a group of young photographers to help foster their confidence and creativity through photography. Fearless Girls Photo club is founded and run by ArtFarm Studios’ co-owner, Alison Harbaugh. This groundbreaking program teaches young girls the value in owning their image – both through their work and everyday life. Partnering with local businesses, Alison helps empower girls as young as 10 years old to be confident leaders, own who they are, and be proud of the work they create through photography.

With a focus on the Town Center property and tenants, the girls set out to learn new skills, expand their portfolio, and ultimately create a final photo story on a Town Center business of their choice. The first week of camp hosted girls 10-13 years old and the second week hosted girls 13-15 years old. Both groups began with a crash course in photography fundamentals. They were encouraged to walk the boulevard while waiting for “moments” to capture as they worked on their composition, aperture, ISO, shutter speed, and focus.

As the week progressed and their skills sharpened, the girls were encouraged to focus on a chosen retailer from the participating Town Center businesses. Each day focused around the end goal of creating a documentary-style story about a day in the life of the chosen retailer. The full process included a short Q&A, staff portraits, street photography, and much more. The collaboration between the Town Center and Fearless Girls Photo club was effortless. “Everyone on site was super kind and welcoming to our group, which made camp a lot of fun,” said Alison. 

“The architecture of the buildings added to the drama of our stories and being able to stay in one area throughout the duration of camp really helped the girls focus on improving their craft.”

If you wish to see the full photo story documentaries, visit ArtFarm Studios or Fearless Photo Girls Instagram.

If you’ve made your way to the Annapolis Town Center, you’ll notice updates that have brought a refreshing new community feel to the property. From the fun outdoor spaces at the Green, the Patio, and the Garden, to new eye-catching artwork, the Town Center continues to make improvements, providing guests with a space to lounge and have a good time.

The latest addition, the Great Egret, is a stunning mural by world-renowned artist Jeff Huntington, also known as Jahru. Along with assistants Julia Gibb and Stephanie Baker,  Jahru created a photo-op masterpiece sure to grab the attention of guests who are making their daily shopping rounds or just browsing.

“It definitely adds color and brightens to a somewhat shaded space,” Jahru said. “(It) grabs people’s attention from near and far, provides a great selfie opportunity, and the painted footsteps make the piece more interactive.”

These improvements are just the beginning. The Town Center looks forward to bringing their guests new, socially distanced experiences safe to enjoy with the whole family as the year continues. 

To see the egret in person, stop by the Town Center and tag @AnnapolisTownCenter on social media — we want to see your selfies! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram and be the first to know about future additions and exciting upcoming events.
