We are in the midst of experiencing some very challenging times. It is important for communities to come together and show support for one another. Especially for those individuals who are so dependent on routine and public systems – like our nation’s children. 

The Annapolis Town Center is committed to making a difference. We are inviting the community to Buy A Meal (whether take-out, delivery or even a gift card) at one of the participating Annapolis Town Center restaurants and we will Give A Meal to students in need by donating a percentage of all restaurant sales to Anne Arundel County Public Schools, benefiting their student lunch program.

Be a part of this initiative and help make a difference in our community.

There are signs everywhere that spring is lurking behind the corner. Temperatures have been unseasonably mild forcing daffodils to bloom and cherry blossoms to burst. People are trading their puffer coats for, well, puffer vests. And when feeling especially defiant, restaurants are serving patrons at outdoor tables. In winter. In Maryland. Sure, it’s a day here or there. But it’s coming. Spring is coming. 

And what better place to spend some of these mild days that we’ll soon be able to string together into weeks then at the Annapolis Town Center. Have you heard what’s cooking over there? Well, if you’re still emerging from hibernation, let me give you five reasons to head there this spring.

Community Gathering Green Space

There are quite a few additions of green space promoting a sense of community at the Town Center. Come for an afternoon or evening, grab a bite or a coffee, and relax in the comfortable seating around a fire pit. After you take some photos in front of the new murals, let the kids run around and burn off some energy. Then spread out under the stars and search for the Big and Little Dippers. I suspect it will be hard to grab a seat once these new additions catch on.

Afternoon Tea with Alice

I’ve always been intrigued by Alice in Wonderland, ever since it was the theme of my fourth grade play. Whether you come to meet Alice, sip tea, partake in the crafts or all of the above, this event is sure to excite everyone. Two seatings are available on April 4th. Get your tickets now!

Visit the Bunny Bungalow

The Easter Bunny is coming to town! Better hop to it and come see him (or is it her?) between March 26 – April 11. You can reserve your time or just walk in with the kids for a photo with the furry one.

Spring at ATC

Here a Pop Up Shop

Here a Pop Up Shop literally pops up all over Annapolis, and if you haven’t been to it, you MUST visit while they make a return to the ATC this spring. You can’t beat one stop shopping such as Art, jewelry, paper and home goods, clothing, accessories and so much more.

Bin 201 Movie Sundays

I am particularly excited for this creative series of events sponsored by Bin 201. Every Sunday, starting March 15th, Bin 201 will show a matinee with a complimentary wine tasting. Classics such as the Wizard of Oz and West Side Story kick off this series in March. Reservations should be made in advance due to space. 

The Annapolis Town Center has made it so easy to fill your days with exciting spring activities. Perhaps I’ll see you there this spring taking advantage of all there is to do and see.

Lunch is the most versatile meal of the day because it spans the spectrum of foods and the sizes of servings.  Lunch is also the most neglected meal, often skipped because people don’t want to take the time to stop and eat while shopping or running errands.  But when your shopping or errands take you to or near Annapolis Town Center, lunch is easy.  You can’t go wrong with any of the dozen or so options, plentiful free parking, and convenient to-go options.

Most of the restaurants offer a large bar area for a pre-dinner beverage, but a couple are definitely worth an early arrival, especially for happy hour.

Wine tasting at Bin 201 and Cooper’s Hawk Tasting Room are also great starting points for a memorable date night.

Annapolis Town Center Continues to Evolve

New community gathering areas, art, events and tenants bring fresh vitality to iconic community destination

 

ANNAPOLIS, Maryland (Feb. 5, 2020) – A significant transformation is underway at Annapolis Town Center, the 659,158-square-foot outdoor mixed-use center in Annapolis, Md. Over the course of the last 16 months, the property has seen a number of strategic enhancements designed to add vitality and improve customer experience.

Among the changes are new community gathering areas with comfortable seating and fire pits, as well as the addition of murals by local artists throughout the center. In addition to aesthetic improvements, the property also launched new event programming throughout 2019, including Fall Fest, Fire & Ice, and Santa’s Cottage, providing the Annapolis community new opportunities to make memories with families and friends.

On the leasing front, new stores and restaurants are expanding to the already unique tenant mix. Home furnishings retailer Z Gallerie opened in January, and a new marquee restaurant – True Food Kitchen – will open later this year.

“Our new signature events and community-focused amenities have resulted in higher foot traffic to the property, attracting new brands excited about the property’s growing success,” said Anthony Henry, Annapolis Town Center General Manager. “It is our goal to create a variety of offerings and experiences that today’s consumer wants, whether it be through art, entertainment, dining or commerce. We have a lot in store for 2020 with new events planned and new businesses joining us. We are ready for a great year, and this is just the beginning.” 

Annapolis Town Center’s evolution is led by retail and mixed-use development, investment and institutional services firm, Trademark Property Company, which was hired to manage and reposition the property in October 2018. Since then, Trademark has spent time listening to the market as part of a visioning process that brings together experts in retail, design and placemaking to develop a strategic plan and vision for the property’s future.  Repositioning efforts will continue with additional enhancements, leasing efforts and community-centric experiences in the coming months.

A new decade is right around the corner! I don’t know about you but New Years Eve is one of my favorite nights of the year. NYE is going to be full of excitement for what is to come in 2020 and there is no better way to ring in the new year than with an incredible outfit and great company. Annapolis Towne Centre has you covered for all of your parties from Roaring 20’s themed to watching the ball drop at home with friends. I scoured Boutique Rowe for the most glitzy, sparkly, shiny pieces sure to impress at your New Years Eve party.

I started my search at South Moon Under and was pleasantly surprised at how many sequins I found throughout the store. I was like a kid in a candy store, there were so many options. Honestly, you really can’t go wrong as long as you sparkle it up. I love shopping in South Moon Under because they also carry the appropriate undergarments and shoes you may need. My favorite pieces I found included this amazing two piece glitter set and this colorful sequin mini dress. Layer your outfit with a faux fur coat for an elevated look or dress down a sparkle top with fun flare pants, jeans and a casual jacket. It completely depends on your plans!   

Next, I walked over to Scout and Molly’s, a boutique next to the Baltimore Coffee shop. As a boutique that carries small amounts of the most special stylish pieces you can find around Annapolis, they are a must stop along the way. I’m always impressed by the unique designers they have in the store. Currently, they have the most incredible hand made designer statement earrings that are sure to add flare to any of your outfits. I tried a few pairs on with some pretty metallic and glittery tops. One of my favorite items in this store were a pair of tailored bright red pants. They were perfectly festive and would look fabulous with almost any metallic top. Scout and Mollys is having a great sale right now including some jackets that could be a great addition to any NYE outfit.

Last on my tour was Anthropologie. If you have any 20’s themed parties to go to this New Year, this is a great place to start. They always have trendy, yet timeless pieces. In the back section of their store I found some fun sequin midi length skirts that can be paired with a unique top such as this feathery looking tank. Their headbands are always some of my favorite accessories and I found a few super cute metallic ones to add to your look. My favorite outfit of the day ended up being a comfortable yet super holiday appropriate sequin tee shirt dress from Anthropology. It can be worn with tights and boots or with heels and a long coat over top.

I absolutely love going out with a big bang on December 31st each year. Especially wearing something extra fabulous that you are sure to find at Annapolis Towne Centre!

Lights, music, delicious food, and smiling crowds — everything you expect to see at an Annapolis Towne Centre event. Ever since their Summer Concerts, the Towne Centre has made it a point to keep the events coming, each time bigger and better than the last. And the close out of the year was no different. Fall Fest was fun for the whole family, the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony was truly magical, and Fire & Ice…well, keep reading.

Fire & Ice.

Fire & Ice went above and beyond expectations in terms of entertainment by featuring light shows, live ice sculpting, stilt walkers, the LED Hoop Troupe, glass blowers… you get the gist. There was no holding back. Not to mention the delicious food trucks with everything from specialty pretzels to milk and cookies, and (if you were feeling DIY) s’mores pits. They were sure to include their iconic beer and wine garden featuring wine, lagers, and whiskey from Gordon Biersch.

Guests of the event remained entertained throughout the night with the heavy mash-up of activities and demonstrations. While sipping on your hot cocoa, you could participate in snowflake ornament decorating and gingerbread craft decorating. Not to mention, there were many ways to document all of the fun times! A spectacular Fire & Ice throne was featured, drawing a line of eager attendees down the green ready to say cheese (or, in this case – FREEZE)! Plus, guests were also given the chance to take their picture at Santa’s Cottage. Now, this is not your standard meet and greet with Ol’ Saint Nick. 

Fire & Ice

Every night from now to December 24, visitors of the cottage can enjoy a light dusting of live snow as they get crafty with seasonal activities, snack on holiday goodies, and pose for a special photo-op with the big man himself! The set-up is beautiful, and the perfect backdrop for this year’s Christmas card photos.

One of the highlights of the night — there was no reason to be stressed about parking. As a gift from the Annapolis Towne Centre, they offered complimentary valet parking with their Holiday Valet Lounge, presented by Brothers Services. This allowed all attendees to enjoy the festivities and warm-up as they waited for their car. 

Although this was their last event of 2019, the Annapolis Towne Centre has bigger and better things coming soon. Definitely stay tuned!
