Annapolis, Maryland: Windmill with Winged Pigs and Guitars

A restaurant changed owners, and menus, but there was no sense bulldozing a mildly eye-catching architectural icon like a windmill -- so it was updated with rockin' BBQ porkers hanging on its blades.

Pigs and windmill.

Windmill with Winged Pigs and Guitars

Pigs with wings playing guitars. Well ok. The BBQ place is still there. A windmill building is always cool. You can see it from the highway, not easy to get to if you want to take photos. There is also a fun little ice cream stand in the parking lot.

The windmill was cool to look at -- we were driving that way.

Has been other things before but it is currently the Red, Hot, and Blue restaurant. Great eats!

Windmill with Winged Pigs and Guitars

Maybe a barbeque place? Passed it at 70 mph in a rainstorm. The windmill was a battered Don Quixote type, pretty big. Sitting on each blade was a winged pig holding a blue guitar. [RA: This has been ID'd by James Lehman as a "Red Hot and Blue Barbecue" restaurant, a franchise that specializes in Tennesee BBQ. "The building used to be the Old Mill Pancake House.]
