Staff writer. What the hell does that mean? Oh yeah, that's right. I do all the fucking grunt work while Linda, Wanda and Mark take all the credit. Hey, but you know what, that's OK. The checks always clear the bank. But come the day that they don't...let me just say four words.... Mark.Naked.Farm.Animals

    This is a crazy article- As the Annapolis Yacht club sure did need some help with how to help place there employees- it doesn’t make sense to me that the other business owner would fire his own employees just to make room for the AYC employees! Because and I quote he (Brunette)) would ” hate to think of anyone out of work in this economy! And that’s what we do in this community…we help each other out!”

    What the heck?????? Is he ( Brunette) crazy? or just stupid?

    I simply don’t understand Harry Burnette.
    He FIRES his own employees at Christmas?
    Twisted thinking!
    Shame on you…

      The Crabwrapper is a satirical newspaper. I know many comments from their website that people think it’s real. Here is the info from the founder “I am Mark Bobwart and I am the Editor-In-Chief of The Crabwrapper. This Website was originally created as a blog to share my experiences as a crossfit enthusiast and paleo-diet lifestylist. But it was my passion for news and news gathering that led this site to evolve into what it is today. Granted I don’t have a college degree in journalism…or even a college degree….but what I do have is passion. Passion and a knowledge of WordPress. And if the Internet has taught us anything, it is that most people believe anything people put on a Website. We’re counting on that.

      We invite you to get to know us, leave a comment, visit out Facebook page, Tweet with us and have some fun!”

    Furthermore, what is the name of his business ? I will not go there. What this article should have mentioned was that the Ramshead organization stepped up to the plate and took on the AYC employees WITHOUT firing any of their own.

    What gos around comes around !! People are still out of work !!! You should hv kept your employees and took in as many as you could !! Other places would hv hired the rest for now!!! Your time will come for this sad sad choice you made …..

      This site is satire. You should be able to tell that without even having to be explicitly told.

      • Liz says:

        Her comment holds true whether or not she understood the fact that the piece is satire. Hell, the last paragraph/section of the article is probably pretty damn accurate, which only makes the fact that this is satire even funnier.

        Harvey Blonder is his own satire.

    I ate at this guys place, and by the way the food tasted I am sure it was going under, this is a stupid way to save it. I use to think highly of the Annapolis yatch club, but if they let this happen, then they lost my respect.

    Typical blonder mentality to fire all the staff at Christmas to hire staff that was already taken care of by both insurance and members. The real reason here why the Blonder’s did this is because that building was expensive to maintain and operate and he should never purchased it in the first place without a real plan of operation. He was in over his head and this opportunity brings the blonders and their partners some relief for the next 24 to 48 months while the Yacht Club get rebuilt. But had his restaurant been doing well no owner in their right mind would have done the dirty deed the blonders pulled off. To take a good deed that the local businesses were doing such as Rams Head and Chart House for hiring employees out of work was great. The blonder’s took this and threw it into the trash can, not for the poor yacht club or its poor employees but for himself as usual. The members at the Annapolis Yacht Club always take care of their staff and would have somehow covered them.

    Great media addition to the greater Annapolis Area. Thanks

    I have it on good, researched, authority that given the setback restrictions… the new club will be 12 stories underwater with a small viewing room on top, a cannon for the race finish, and a secret tunnel to the annex on the other side of Spa (Spy) creek. There will be a mast disguised as a sailboat mast that will raise for viewing the races.
