The Eastport Yacht Club in Annapolis, MD joins in the tradition of the Burning of the Socks. This event is a 'rite of Spring' and dates back to the 1980s at the Annapolis Yacht Yard. Bob Turner started the tradition after a long winter of working in the boatyard by burning his socks and toasting Spring! There is even an 'Ode to the Sock Burners' - can you say Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum?!

So while we're tired of winter here at TS HQ, and growing anxious for Spring, we may make an attempt at burning our socks as well! We're just passed the Vernal Equinox, so we'll call it Fashionably Late. So gather up those ripe, foot straight jackets, build a fire and bring on the Skipper Skimmers and Tipsy Toes!
Sit back, have a cocktail, and let those Tipsy Toes breath! Cheers!

Crazy Burger, a hidden gem restaurant in Narragansett, RI was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Ferretti. It's a very fun, artsy, casual atmosphere. No ordinary burger place, Crazy Burger offers extremely unique combinations: Hoof, Fin and Claw burgers, Quesadillas, Pizza and my favorite, the Wassupy Burger - a ground beef burger with horseradish, garlic and Worcestershire sauce, topped with Brie and home-made onion rings, served with wasabi-chipotle mayonnaise. And the Bangkok slaw is unlike any other coleslaw! The extensive menu features something for everyone - they even have a vegan section of the menu, and the dishes featured on the Food Network are highlighted.
Another great dish is the Chicken Marsala Burger

It's time to announce the winning Spring/Summer 2011 Tipsy Skipper prints. Thank you to all of you who participated in the Prints Survey! We loved your feedback and comments! So while we've included the top ranking prints, we've also thrown in a surprise or two....
And of course naming the prints is one of the best parts! So where do we get our inspiration? Summer, sailing, vacation, and yes... you guessed it! Cocktail parties!! It's up to you to figure out which of these were inspired by names of cocktails! Use our print names as inspiration to try a new cocktail this weekend!
Wishing you fair winds and smooth sailing! -TS
