Myron Lepine The First Recipient of The GoodMorningGloucester Gloucester Bumper Sticker
A couple of days ago Dennis Silva, owner of the Topside Grill stopped by the dock to pick up his lobsters for the restaurant as he does daily. He gets them daily because he is a freak for freshness and quality and wants the freshest possible lobsters each day.
Anyway a couple of our lobstermen were offloading when Dennis showed up and I mentioned to them how Dennis has a lobster dinner on his menu for $13.99. It made the guys feel good that the guy that was buying the lobsters that they just sold me were going to a guy that was marketing them right.
A major beef with lobstermen is when places charge ridiculous prices for lobsters and make them unaffordable for the average person when in reality they aren’t that much money to put on a menu.
I requested that if you stopped by for a free Gloucester bumper sticker that you put it on your vehicle and not just take one and stick it in a drawer somewhere.
Damon asked me if any vehicle qualified and I had a sneaking suspicion that he was gonna stop by in his dory. Of course he didn’t disappoint.

Heidi Wakeman measures and cuts used sails to be made into bags for Again and Again in East Gloucester Square. You can’t get much more of an local innovative business than this make bags out of sails that were destined for the junk heap.
At 8:00AM look for her Gloucester Perspectives interview in which she talks about what she loves about it here.

“Block party comes to Main Street Saturday
By Michael Farrell
Imagine yourself sitting at your favorite Main Street restaurant Saturday night. The food is delicious. The place is clean. The staff is friendly. The service is prompt. There is a distinct difference, though, from the other times that you have eaten on Main Street.”
