Last Sunday I was invited to join three Americade friends to a ride-to-eat event at the Union Hotel and Tavern near the old Susquehanna River town of Port Deposit, Maryland. The hotel dates to the late 18th century, and has been a weekend favorite of local motorcyclists for years. I've ridden past the event many times but never stopped because it seemed too "biker" for my tastes. However, though 98% of the bikes there on Sunday were cruisers, the crowd was mellow and the staff very friendly. The blues band was excellent (though louder than a set of open pipes) and the BBQ was top-notch. Alcohol was sold, but so was a variety of beverages for those of us who need every brain cell when riding. Looks like I've found another RTE to add to the ol' ride calendar; it would also make a nice early afternoon rest stop on the way home from strafing some of my favorite roads in the PA/MD Susquehanna areas. Brunch is served beginning at noon Saturday and Sundays.
