AFTER THE SHOW

We love every boat show. Truly, we do. Whether it’s the megayachts in Fort Lauderdale or the Downeast debuts in Newport, Rhode Island, or the center consoles and family-friendly cruisers in New York City, each boat show has its own vibe and reasons to get excited.Lowcountry dirty rice, meatloaf and chicken pot pie — say, if you need to soothe your nerves during a bidding war for a brokerage boat. ¶ And as hard as it might be to save a few calories for dessert, we highly recommend a stop at the Storm Bros. Ice Cream Factory, which has been serving up sweetness since 1979. There are single-, double- and triple-scoop versions of everything from traditional chocolate and vanilla to deep-dish apple pie. (Yes, as ice cream. On a cone.) ¶ So, walk the show docks until your feet are good and sore, and work up a hearty appetite. Annapolis never disappoints — on boats or bellies.
