Riverboat returns

Take a different type of dinner cruise when the Black-Eyed Susan returns Monday.

The riverboat has been expanded to 24 feet -- 149 people can now be seated at tables on the main deck.

The Black-Eyed Susan is available for cruises seven days a week and holds weddings, proms, banquets, crab feasts, and also offers a casino package.

The Black-Eyed Susan is docked near the Bo Brooks Crab House at the Baltimore Marine Center at Lighthouse Point in Canton. For more information, call 410-342-6960 or visit www.theblack-eyed
