Dinner Under the Stars is the latest and greatest reason to be out on a Wednesday night in Annapolis. Located on the first block of West Street near Church Circle (same location as First Sunday Arts Festival), this strip of wonderfully diverse and delicious restauranteurs are taking the cafe tables out of their dining rooms and serving their patrons al fresco, below a canopy of lights and stars.

During the event, reminiscent of Van Gogh or Lautrec's depictions of French cafe scenes, guests stroll about the closed street to try their feet at tango lessons while music of local musicians fills the air. Conveniently located on Gallery Row, the event allows visitors to browse art galleries like Whitehall Gallery, Annapolis Collection Gallery, and Artfarm. The adventurous can test their abilities at Mission Escape Rooms, while those feeling artistic can dabble in paint at Wine & Design. The Annapolis Photographer captures the evening with complementary portraits. This event runs every Wednesday through September 21st, and reservations are recommended.
