Our permanent meeting host is the American Legion Post 166 located at Coastal Hwy and 23rd streets.


Please enter through the handicapped door on the 23rd street north side.  All membership meetings begin at 7:30pm on the second Thursday of each month.  However, all Roost members are invited to arrive early for food and drink specials at reasonable prices - a great place to have dinner before or during the meeting.  The Post only accepts cash for purchases.


The only likely changes to the meeting schedule are for an outside summer meeting at our annual family picnic and for a conflict at the post during the September bike week.


During football season we are invited to the Post for a game viewing party with the big projection screen along with tailgating food and drinks for sale.

Funny Poop

A cab driver pulled up at a stop sign near Central Park in New York.  A stark naked woman jumped out from behind a bush, opened the back door of the cab and demanded to be taken to the airport.  The cab driver kept looking back at his passenger in the rear view mirror, and she became irritated and said, "Why do you keep staring at me?"

The cab driver replied, "Well, you don't have any clothes on and no place to carry any money and I am wondering how you are going to pay your fare?"

The woman opened her legs and pointed to her crotch and said, "How about me paying with this?"

The cab driver looked back at the woman and said, "Do you have anything smaller?"

Baltimore Ravens, let’s go

And put that ball across the line

So, fly with talons spread wide

Go in and strike with Ravens pride

Fight! Fight! Fight!

Ravens dark wings take flight

Dive in and show them your might

For Baltimore and Maryland

You will fly on to victory
