Hand Carved Striper At Menage Gallery

I’ve been seeing more and more of the hand carved striper bass around town.  One looked particularly cool over the threshold of someone’s house just past the stone bridge heading toward Annisquam.

Shout Out To Noble Electric, Ringo Tarr and Donna Ardizzoni

Just like to thank the folks at Noble Electric and Ringo Tarr for donating their time and equipment for help with the Downtown Block Party on August 16th.

The whole thing has been set up so far with very little money except for the generous donation from Donna Ardizzoni at Circle Consulting group for banners.

It’s really becoming an organic, community, pitch in and lets have fun organization of volunteers that want nothing but the best for our killer city!

Erik Lorden At Passports Displays His Downtown Herb Garden Video

Erik Lorden steps up big after disappointing as a no-show in the Downtown Gloucester Merchants Flower Box Competition.

He knew he had to either come strong with some outside the box creativity or face being ridiculed by me for not representing.

The boy brought his A Game and creativity in his Sustainable Cape Ann best with flower boxes containing herbs that he uses in some of his tastiest dishes.

Passports Downtown Herb Garden

Upcoming video of Erik explaining the motive behind his new herb garden (no, not that kind of herb) in his newly installed flower baskets in front of Passports.

Since the Downtown Merchants Flower Box Competition, there have been at least 8 storefronts that now have Flower boxes that didn’t have them before the competition.   I love it!
