What? You haven’t been to Lobsta Land yet! What are you waiting for?

My wife and I had a great dinner at Lobsta land last night. I started out with their newest drink, Devil’s Storm. We split the coconut shrimp appetizer. I had the steak tips for my entree, YUM. Everything was outstanding. The service by Sam and Christina was first class as well. You will also love the renovations they did. This is defiantly GMG approved.

Cape Ann Lanes Introduces Laneside Pub & Brewery

We stopped by Cape Ann Lanes on Gloucester Ave recently and spoke with Caitlin Pszenny about the opening of their outdoor deck. It’s a nice little spot where you can safely have a bite to eat while maybe wetting your whistle with their own brew! She and husband Nic are expecting to be able to offer their own brew this weekend at the newly named Laneside Pub & Brewery! It looks like a fantastic addition to Gloucester and we wish them well. There’s a new menu as well as new seating options. They are doing a wonderful job with Cape Ann Lanes and we will be planning to stop by Laneside Pub very soon! More information about their hours and protocols here.
