Relaxing Dinner at Tonno

We had a wonderfully relaxing (and very safe and clean) dining experience with inside seating at Tonno recently. We were warmly greeted and seated inside as requested, along with 4-5 other parties at the time. The outdoor seating was tempting but honestly I wanted to see the inside again! It’s such a warm welcoming setting. All table distanced appropriately and all staff were masked. Contact tracing information is taken upon arrival in a precautionary measure.

The service was friendly, gracious and efficient even when I spilled my drink…….We ordered the garlic bread appetizer with prosciutto. Genius combo! It was a great way to prepare for the chicken parm and the lobster rigatoni special ( with Capt. Joe’s lobster). Each entree was prepared perfectly and delicious. I forgot to take the cannoli dessert picture but they were creamy and very tasty. Looking forward to summer at Tonno! See you there.


And Forever In Peace May You Wave

It’s been a year so far, hasn’t it? I am feeling patriotic but not celebratory this year. I am grateful to be here in Gloucester where I feel safe and protected by the majority of people I see in masks and socially distanced.

So, as a little distraction from COVID and to concentrate on our flag: Did you know the famous George Cohan song You’re a Grand Old Flag was the first from a musical (George Washington, Jr.) that sold over a million copies of sheet music? Don’t lie, you’re humming right now aren’t you? You’re a grand old flag, You’re a high flyin’ flag, And forever in peace may you wave.

Here are some pictures of flags from around town over the last couple of years. And, (your bonus for reading the blog) a picture of how I will be celebrating the holiday this year. Stay safe. Stay apart. Fly your flag.
