Annapolis Marketplace Makeover Proposed. What’s Your Favorite Annapolis Memory?

Courtesy of the Baltimore Sun

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that the historic Marketplace is getting a makeover to the tune of $400,000. KA CHING! However; that is chump change when you condsider the millions spent by the city in court costs to defend previous renovation plans. Those not in favor of the plans accuse Mayor Joshua Cohen of trying to revive his own childhood memories of a bustling Marketplace. You can read the article here.

I have some awesom memories of the Marketplace and another Annapolis spot called Buzzy’s Pizza.  My dad would load the nine kids along with Granny to Buzzy’s on Sunday afternoon, located right by the main gate of the Naval Academy. The place was dark with painted black open rafter ceilings. The walls were adorned with larger than life characters of the roaring 20’s and animated gangsters. Painted bullet holes marked the walls that stirred every imagination of a kid possible. Then there was the pizza. It was AWESOME (any pizza to an 8-year old was awesome).  The pitchers of Root Beer and Sprite were endless. Afterwards, we would walk the grounds of the Naval Academy and our parents would let us run off all the energy that we had from our full bellies on the atheletic fields.
