Canal Bar & Grill Grand Re-Opening

Smiling Charlie

“Smiling Charlie” was introduced to America in 1935 by Budweiser. He was dubbed the “Ambassador of Good Times” and was used to promote the sales of Budweiser after the ending of prohibition. The company tried to reintroduce him in 2005, but it was a flop. However, The Canal Bar & Grill thought he would be a perfect fit for them and requested permission from Budweiser to “adopt” Smiling Charlie. They agreed.

The Canal Bar & Grill has renovated and changed its overall business theme with an expanded menu, a new mascot (Smiling Charlie), and incorporating more local and craft beers into their offerings. So after over 60 years in business The Canal Bar & Grill is having a grand re-opening.

The re-opneing is scheduled for Wednesday, October 5th from 3PM to 9PM. The Chamber of Commerce will provide a ribbon cutting ceremony including elected officials as guests at 3PM.

Proceeds from this event will benefit Christmas Cash for Kids. WFMD will host a live broadcast from 3PM to 6PM to help generate funds for Christmas Cash for Kids and will auction off four club level tickets to the Ravens vs. Texans game.

A compilation of Canal’s vendors will also participate and provide a complimentary buffet and door prizes for guests. Drink and food specials will also be featured throughout the event.

I’ve drank many a beer and broke much bread at Canal over the years. I even played kickball for them waaaaay back in the day. I’ve always had a good time at Canal and wish them well.
