Fish Tacos At Cape Ann Brewing

The Fish Tacos and Haddock sandwich at Cape Ann Brewing are both great.  They have this in house made spicy sauce that I put on which really kicks up the heat nicely! 

The deck overlooking the working waterfront is gonna be rocking this summer, check it out!


Cape Ann Painters and Photographers Group

Hi everyone,


This is just a reminder that our regular second Monday of the month meeting will be held at “The Annie”, One Washington Street, Gloucester on Monday, April 9 at 9:00AM.  There will coffee/mingle time from 9-9:30 with the meeting beginning at 9:30 and ending at 11AM.  We will continue with our format of having everyone “check in” for  a few minutes to tell us what you have been working on.

Thanks and hope to see you then.

Alice Gardner

Note: This group that Alice Gardner started is evolving into a really great networking, sharing and fun event for Cape Ann artists, so if you’ve thought about joining us, please do.  You won’t be sorry.  All creative types on Cape Ann are welcome (you don’t have to be a painter or photographer).  Henry Allen and The Annie are great hosts too – thanks Henry.

Surprise guest at Shalin Liu last night ~ another surprise at the Brew Pub tonight

Surprise guest at Shalin Liu last night

Miranda Russell at Shalin Liu last night with surprise guest Inge Berge on guitar (L-R: John Hyde, Joe Kessler, Miranda Russell, Vincent Briguglio, Inge Berge, Leo Ciaramitaro)

Justin Piper’s wife was in labor so Miranda called Inge at about 4pm to ask if he could sit in.  Inge was excellent with some great solos, which proves just how versatile he is (in case anyone ever doubted).  See Inge’s new hit video here.  Very different style indeed!

As of this morning there were 5 tickets left for Miranda’s show tonight.  You can see if they’re still available here.

For the rest of you, there are plenty of other choices tonight (full music lineup here).  Our good friend Allen Estes will be with Dan King & Friends at Cape Ann Brewery starting at 9pm.  He’s just finished a new song.  Ask him to play it.

On The Wall art show at The Annie tonight!

If you haven’t heard, there’s going to be a great art opening at The Annie tonight with a group of fantastic young artists from around town! Watch the video below for more details, check out the Facebook page, or just show up sometime this evening to take it all in. Doors open at 4:00!

Brad Byrd Video Shoot May 5th at Lat 43- Party and Be In a Music Video!

Brad Byrd writes-

Hey Joey, Brad Byrd here…    just wanted to catch up w/u (hopefully you’ll see this email) and say thanks for coming out to Lat 43 on St Patty’s Day and being a part of the video shoot.   The video is almost finished and I’m excited to show you and Gloucester/Cape Ann.  I also wanted to personally thank you for including/featuring me in your GMG blogs over the last couple months or so.  Congrats again on all the blogs success!  

That said, I wanted to let you and your readers know that we will be doing another video for another song off my new album on May 5th at Lat 43 again.  This time w/my full band.  It’s going to be a big night.  I’m also playing every Thursday night from 8-11pm at Giuseppe’s solo for the month of April.

I Won the F/V Midnight Sun T-Shirt Raffle on Facebook!!

Who said Facebook wasn’t worth the bother. I now have proof. F/V Midnight Sun raffled off one of their awesome T-Shirts on their Facebook page and just moments ago I won!

I never win anything. Actually I did win a Stop and Shop raffle for a basketball camp with Larry Bird, McCale and Parrish but the fine print said I had to be 12 or younger. It was a great present to a cousin. I was going to try to act 12 but I think I was 28 at the time and although I sometimes act 12 I was going to have a hard time passing for 12.

Thank you Midnight Sun, you can wrap a nice fish in it. 😉 I will post a pic with Rubber Duck wearing the T-Shirt.

More photos of the young people’s Way of the Cross

…at St. Ann’s Church (Holy Family Parish) in Gloucester.  I saved these for today, Good Friday, because of the theme…

I’m sure there was no one playing the violin on the way to Calvary, but it sure added a lot to our way of the Cross to have this talented girl playing the violin in between stations…

A living Pietà!
