The Perfect Storm of Events: Zoolander sequel on schedule, and Joey’s ability to describe hair removal and underwear selection and the post of this Youtube video coalesced together for the perfect GMG Charity Event.
Joey modeling Veronica’s Secret underwear.
Check out the video! (Because Gloucester we should be able to do this without this weird privacy screen and maybe Peter and Vickie can come up with a Gimmiesound “ba ba BOOM, ba ba BOOM).
Rubber Duck has said she will be a judge. Any money stuck in underwear goes to Cape Ann Animal Aid. Do it for the puppies!
Bank Gloucester’s Banking For The Community program is bigger than ever this year. You get to vote ON-LINE (right here) for an organization to to win up to $5K! Now, there are some excellent organizations on the list, but you can also check a box labeled “Other” and write one in yourself. That’s what I did. I voted for the Harbor Loop Concerts. “Why?” Well, for a number of reasons this 30-year-old tradition almost fizzled this summer. But due to the tireless efforts of organizer Bradley Royds, with a little help from Mayor Kirk and others at City Hall, they pulled it off — barely — and it was a wonderful summer of free music at Harbor Loop enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors. I’d like to see this concert series secure for next year and what better way than by awarding it the top Bank Gloucester prize. Soooo …. if you agree, just go to https://www.bankgloucester.com/ballot, check the last box in the right hand column and write in “Harbor Loop Concerts” just like in the image below:

You know what I don’t do nearly enough? Go to comedy shows.
Every few years a few of us get together and make plans to take in a show….and then, inevitably I find myself wondering, “Why don’t I do this more often?”
Who doesn’t need a good, honest, unbridled laugh every so often?
Last week I did just that. I laughed, and laughed, and laughed.
Somehow, a year has gone by since my friends opened Laugh Boston and, on the club’s 1st anniversary, it was finally time to cross it off this year’s bucket list. I am so glad that I did! The comedians were, well, hysterical and the club itself is, dare I say, the perfect combination of industrial yet cozy. Its fantastic location within the Westin Waterfront in Boston’s Seaport district doesn’t hurt either. Nor does its full bar and “light fare” menu.
Laugh Boston is, as they say, “the stand-up brother to the Improv Asylum, Boston’s improv & sketch comedy theater located in the North End.”
If you haven’t been there either….you are totally missing out. In contrast to Stand Up comedy, the Improv Asylum features incredibly quick-witted improvisation and sketch comedy. Which, in my humble opinion, takes a true artist to pull off. They can boast to over 10,000 shows since its opening in 1998.
So, dinner and drinks in the North End and then a riot of an evening at the club. Or, a trip to the Seaport District, tons of laughs at the stand up club, and maybe even a quick overnight stay at the Westin? With summer coming to an end, that’s two good excuses to get over not only the A. Piatt Andrew, but also, the Tobin Bridges!
Hard Merchandise at rest.
Lately it’s hard to avoid The Hard Merchandise around the harbor working and with multiple cameras pointed at the crew unloading Bluefin Tuna.
I caught the Hard Merchandise at rest where it’s been docked for years. Behind the Madfish Galleries on Rocky Neck.
My camera was the only one there.

A parallel world, very similar to ours here in Gloucester, exists in Bayfield, WI, on the shores of Lake Superior. It has Bodin Fisheries, a commercial fishing boatyard, and even a bar called the Rum Line. Check out Bodin’s “Wild Caught Lake Superior U.S.A.” product list: http://www.bodinfisheries.com/price-list.html. If you’re tired of cod and halibut, try Bodin’s Burbot or whole whitefish.
