The 22nd day of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour presented by The Maryland Lottery, Goodwill, Window Nation and the Restaurant Association of Maryland was spent in Eldersburg with an incredible local journey with old friends. Mike McKelvin and Dante Liberatore own a restaurant and brewing company and shared their Carroll County life with Nestor. And John Maroon stopped by for three decades of sports tales about Cal Ripken Jr. and walking the Great Wall of China and the streets of Beijing together. Lots of delicious 1823 beer here and a toast to the late, great Vince Bagli and Chris Thomas.
Nick Schauman of The Local Oyster brings Nestor the long, lost and highly memorable purple Flacco Fu mustaches from 2012 and a full education on the oyster ecosystem to our bellies. "He was a bold man who first ate an oyster!"
Peter Angelos did everything in his power to give Baltimore the NFL ball in 1994. Here's the whole story...and the 2131 Cal Ripken night when Orioles fans booed him off the dais and he was never to be seen in front of Baltimore fans ever again.
With a newly released memoir about his life in music and times in the Canadian band Triumph in the 1980s, guitarist Rik Emmett discusses " "Lay It On The Line" and the stories behind a lifetime in music with Nestor from Toronto.
