In 1884, when many of the western states of the United States were still being created and Jack the Ripper was at large in London, the founders of The Evening Capital decided to bring stories from the world to residents of Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, and Kent Island. With a reputation established over the course of more than a century, the paper, now known as The Capital, focuses on local and regional news but still brims with the same world news as well as pieces on sports and entertainment. Subscribers find recipes and information about local events in the lifestyle section after grabbing the paper from the lawn or downloading the digital edition from the Internet. In the paper?s opinion section, readers share their points of view with the world, discuss issues relevant to their communities, and suggest comical things for Marmaduke to bury.

When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.

As they cross the Spa Creek Bridge and spot the bright-red exterior of the Carrol's Creek Cafe, fans of the restaurant know that they're just a few steps away from a delicious bounty of bay treasures. Planted along the famous restaurant row in the Eastport section of Annapolis, Carrol's Creek overlooks a bustling dock and the city's waters. Such a location hints at the restaurant's specialties, which include Maryland cream of crab soup and herb-encrusted rockfish fillets served over sun-dried tomato pesto risotto. An extensive selection of wine, craft beer, and cocktails complements the restaurant's new-American spread. The views aren't bad, either, since diners can peer out into the bay and watch the sail boats play round after round of Marco Polo.

In one of the nation's most storied rivalries spanning more than a century, the Navy Midshipmen and the Army Black Knights have met on courts, fields, mats, and tracks and in pools more than 1,700 times. Though the fierce rivalry will always take priority among students, fan bases, media, and aliens debating whether to invade America by land or by sea, the Midshipmen have excelled against other competition, as well. The Naval Academy boasts NCAA Division II championships in women’s indoor track and women’s swimming, as well as 40 NCAA Division I individual championships, including 10 fencing champions, nine men’s gymnastics champions, and eight men’s swimming champions.

Benefitting the civic-minded nonprofit, Junior League of Annapolis, the Pig & Pearls event treats revelers to an autumnal afternoon at the mouth of the South River and Chesapeake Bay for all-you-can-eat oysters, barbecue, and libations. As the bay's waves lap against the beach sands, chefs line up tasty trays of raw and roasted oysters, barbecue, and desserts that keep unruly sweet teeth under control more effectively than fitting them with rock-candy braces. Wash down fare with a soft drink or the cold suds of a Miller Lite or Yuengling as The Baltimore Bluegrass Band plucks the banjo and strikes the fiddle in traditional bluegrass favorites.
