Annapolis Cup, the annual croquet match between the U.S. Naval Academy and St. John's College, is one of those events that Annapolitans look forward to all year.
It's the biggest, drunkest, preppiest lawn party of the year, complete with southern belle dresses, bowties, and big, floppy hats. College Avenue is practically completely blocked off, and the whole town is a blur of Lilly Pulitzer and Vineyard Vines. So break out your cardigan and your pearls, because Annapolis Cup 2012 is going to be a great time.
There is one minor detail, however: Annapolis Cup will not be allowing outside alcohol into the event this year. Beer, wine, and champagne will be available for cash purchase once you have entered the event. Just because Annapolis Cup has sobered up doesn't mean you have to, though--it just means you have to get that much more smashed beforehand.
There really is nothing quite like dressing up and getting drunk with your best friends while looking at hot midshipmen. Get ready for Annapolis Cup 2012.
Annapolis Cup will take place on April 28th at 1:00 p.m. this year. For event information, click here.
