Maryland vineyards make the perfect fall date with events, tours

Outdoor event at Boordy VineyardStrolling the grounds of Boordy Vineyards on an autumn day with a glass of wine in hand can be a perfect date for wine lovers.

Maryland vineyards make the most of this time of year, which coincides with grape harvest and “crush” season. Many invite the wine-loving public to hang out and sip, often while listening to music and noshing on delicious food.

From bands in the hills of Boordy Vineyards to Food Truck Fridays at Old Westminster Winery, Maryland winemakers provide ample opportunity to enjoy the fruits of the local vines. Read on for several vineyards that offer perfect date outings.

Find tasty fare at a Maryland food truck gathering

The atmosphere on a recent summer evening as hundreds dined at a firehouse in Anne Arundel County could best be described as abuzz. Visitors chatted about where and what they were eating while generators hummed in the background, powering more than a dozen food trucks.

It was Food Truck Thursday in Odenton, a weekly occurrence that began earlier this year and one of several like it in the region.

12 exciting date adventures for you and your spouse in the Annapolis area

dateadventureBy Rose Talbot

Date adventures don't have to be a thing of the past for Baltimore/Annapolis area parents. There are plenty of ways for Mommy and Daddy to get their groove back.

Liz and Kevin Parker of Owings have a nearly fail-safe system for making and keeping their date nights. For the last 10 years they have combined forces with three other families to make sure a monthly date night happens.

On a mutually agreed upon Saturday night, three couples drop their kids off at the fourth couple's house. They all have appetizers, chat and then the three couples go their separate ways for their dates while the kids stay at the hosting family's house, eat dinner and play. The couples are expected back no later than 11 p.m., Parker explains.

"Over the years we've used our 'date night' to go to dinner alone, go to a bookstore and have coffee, go Christmas shopping, walk around Annapolis or attend a special event," she says. "We have even used the night to head back home for a quiet dinner at the house."

Another benefit of the arrangement is that the kids have so much fun, they don't want to give up their date night at the host house which ensures Mom and Dad get their evening alone.
