BERLIN MD to “drop the Ball’ – again!

Despite being just two days before Christmas, during my weekly visit to the Berlin Farmers’ Market last Friday, much of the chatter seemed focused on the upcoming New Year’s Eve ‘Ball Drop’ here in Berlin.  The descriptive term, ‘wildly successful event’ was tossed about.  And, with the Town’s recent ordinance permitting alcohol to be consumed at designated street-side locations at our Town’s center, within view of the countdown, I’m betting that this year’s second annual celebration will be ‘wilder’ still.  It’s all in fun and only for a brief coulpa’ hours…we get to join in!


For those visiting from out of town, listed below are several suggestions for lodging – the first three within EASY walking distance of this second New Year’s Eve ‘wildly successful’ celebration in Historic Berlin, Maryland.  Don’t miss it!
