Frederick Road Fridays - The First Night Exceeded Everyone's Expectations!

Well, It is June 14. And Last night was The First of the Frederick Rd. Friday's events.

The Weather was Perfect. The Band was Great. And everyone had an Excellent Time.
Over 400 People Participated in The Festivities, Many Stayed and Patronized the Local Businesses for Hours after the Music Stopped.

The Beer Garden at Jenning's Cafe was a Huge Success!

Great Event. Good Times. Kudos to those who made it happen. We are looking forward to bringing friends to the upcoming ones.
(Getting to the Beer Garden was a Little Awkward - Can it be opened up?)

I have a friend that always tells me how much he hates Ship's Pub, yet he goes there every week. He told me that the owner's of Ships, say they are going to shut down these events. I didn't make it Friday night, but, according to my friend you are taking up Ship's parking spaces. Isn't this held on a public street? What is with these people? It seems like Frederick Road Friday Nights, would help them. TN

I, too, have heard that Mr. Andrews has vowed to do whatever it takes to stop these Friday night events. I don't get it - last Friday night there was a 1 hour wait to get into almost every restaurant in Catonsville (Including Ships). You are doing good things for Catonsville. DON'T LET HIM TRY TO INTIMIDATE YOU! Keep up the good work. Sam

Every one had a great time. The businesses did well. Parking was not an issue. Nobody seemed to get drunk. What's the Problem? Maybe Mr. Ship's will write another letter to the Times commending you on a job well done. (Ha Ha)

What’s up with your parking sign? You had indicated when applying for your variance from the county that the additional parking would “help alleviate the parking problem on Frederick Road”. Now the sign says parking for “Employees and patrons of Strawberry Fields” only. What gives?

Re: Your Parking Question...
We are helping, with the parking problem on Frederick Rd. We are making the necessary investment to provide parking for our tenants, their employees and customers. Ours is not a parking lot for other businesses to use as their own. Businesses that opened without taking steps to provide adequate parking. We are having a problem with these business owners telling their patrons to park on our lot. More specifically Business Owners that have tried everything that they can think of, to cause trouble for us. Please ask the owners of the properties that you may be visiting to direct you to the parking spots that they have provided for you. Craig W.

y'all are LAZY! There is plenty of parking if you're willing to walk your lazy bones more than a block!
