Second Chance SaloonSecond Chance Saloon (SCS) features $1 Bohs, $2.50 Rails, $2.50 Drafts, $2.50 House Wine until 7 pm, so come early for specials.  Until 7 pm, food specials during happy hour include $5 fried pickles, chips and queso, wings, clam strips, and onion rings.  EVERY TUESDAY NIGHT, including during the MOC Social Hour (5-10 pm), ALL BURGERS are half-price.

Come meet the members of the MOC at one or many of our monthly social hours.  Starting September 2012, we are hosting two separate monthly social hours, one North of the Baltimore Tunnels and one South -- to accomodate as many members as possible.  Everyone is welcome to attend either (members and non-members, 21 and over). Yes, you can go to both.  Note: You do not need to RSVP for this event, you can just show up. But note that we have no way to get last minute updates to you if you don't RSVP in one of the many places this event is advertised.



S'moresThe October Social Hour will feature Oktoberfest craft beer options -and- if the weather allows us, we'll be on the patio again (our own private Bier Garden) with the fire pits going (yes, just like a campfire!) complete with s'mores! You won't want to miss this in October. Mark your calendars now!


We will have a designated area in the restaurant portion of the establishment --or-- on nights when the weather is nice, find us on the back patio! (Note: when the weather is good, we'll give you advanced warning so you can feel free to bring your dogs to the back patio too).  Look for our signs at SCS to find the group.

The social hours are very casual and we encourage you to come alone or bring a pal with you.  (Tip: we find that folks that come on their own end up meeting and making more friends).  We will make sure that you are introduced to other members, just look for one of our "Social Greeters" wearing a nametag.  Also note that you can arrive at any time and stay as long as you'd like, this is not a "hard start" type event like our outdoor adventures.

PLENTY OF FREE PARKING!  SEPARATE CHECKS FOR ALL ATTENDEES -- just be prepared to "hold" your tab with a card, whether you plan to pay for your final bill with a card or cash.

Remember, we will only host both social hours if there is a need for them.  Do you want us to keep hosting the one closest to your home or work?  Then, SHOW UP please!!!  This is the ONLY way we can estimate the interest level.

Social Hour (South) is held the second Tuesday of every month, unless otherwise noted.

If you are interested in becoming a Social Greeter at our next Social Hour, please email the Social Hour (South) event organizer.

Please note: The MOC encourages responsible consumption of alcohol.
