I wanted you to know that – besides being an 8 state in one-day swimmer – I am also the proud new owner of Cape Ann Foodie Tours! The business was created in 2012 by PJ Halloran and I am pleased to take over the reins – or Foodie Fork in this case!
What is a food tour people may wonder? It is a different way of seeing a city. Ours is a food focused walking tour (we travel about a mile) and folks walk away with local knowledge and a full belly.
The tour begins at Harbor Loop where our guide gives a history of Cape Ann. We walk up Rogers Street towards Main and visit the Topside Grill. Next it’s the Cape Ann Olive Oil Company, then onto Virgilios!
We cross the street for a treat at Café Sicilia before heading down to St Peter’s Square where – of course – we visit the Cape Ann Brew Pub. Last stop is Turtle Alley!
I don’t want to tell you everything because I’d spoil the tour! We do also run a tour in Rockport called Sights and Sweets as well as a Taste Newburyport tour.
Joey, we also have an Ales and Tales tour. This is really fun and it basically entails having a fisherman talk and drink beers with a group of people who are in town looking for local color. Do you know anyone who would be great at “guiding” this tour?
Please spread the word! We also have a 5* TripAdvisor rating on “Things to Do” on Cape Ann.

Fred Buck at the Cape Ann Museum sends a message, photo and printed matter. Thank you so much, Fred!
“Thanks to the Carrancho family for preserving this piece of Gloucester and the memories still out there. I’m attaching a news photo i found on ebay a couple years ago of this same event. Hand-written notes on the back but no attribution for photographer or publication. i’m adding a piece from the June 1948 Atlantic Fisherman Magazine in the museum collection, giving their write-up of the event. Please pass these on to the Carranchos and feel free to add them to any additional posts on Good Morning Gloucester about the occasion. The breadth of history in this little city is a beautiful thing.”
Reginald Santos sent a comparison of statues (1948 vs 1953), plus a photo marked up that may identify his Uncle, Capt. Albino Pereira. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this!

Looking to get your face melted? Well that’s what The Silks will do for you. This power trio is rock ‘n roll reborn. Tyler-James Kelly, Jonas Parmelee and Sam Jodrey have already hit a stride that a lot of groups probably never find. They’re able to produce that fantastic 70’s rock sound in a way that doesn’t feel fabricated or dishonest in any way.

SeniorCare Inc. and North Shore Pride are pleased to announce the creation of a new program to provide social opportunities for Seniors in the LGBT community. “Seniors Out & About – An LGBT Social Gathering” will organize events for older LGBT people (60 years of age and older), their friends and family. The first event will take place on June 19, 2016 as a kick-off to North Shore Pride Week at the North Shore Music Theatre! Following Pride Week, there will be a Pot Luck Dinner in Rockport on June 26—watch for more information on the Pot Luck.
Seniors Out & About will attend the June 19, 2:00 p.m., show of FUNNY GIRL at the North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly. There will be a private reception following the show right outside the theater on the patio with snacks and refreshments. A limited number of discounted tickets (inner circle seats) are available for this event.
FUNNY GIRL tells the bittersweet story of Fanny Brice (played by Broadway veteran Shoshana Bean), whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to the Ziegfeld Follies, then on to international fame, and her tempestuous relationship with gambler Nicky Arnstein.
For information and tickets to the June 19 show, go to www.seniorcareinc.org and click on the “Out & About” link or contact Kelly Knox at 978-281-1750 for additional information.
