I Made Some Gloucester Custom “Bat Signals” To Share With Your Friends When You’re Heading To The Bar

Scottie Mac had one made for The Nest and we would share it in the circle in text chains when rallying the troops to meet up.

I figured that I could upgrade the one he put together and make a bunch for the watering holes we frequent.

You can right click and save these particular images to your phone to use with your friends.

You’re welcome!

A Visit with AC at the 1606 Oyster Bar

If you haven’t sat at the Beauport’s 1606 Oyster Bar and enjoyed a conversation with AC, you really should. Personality plus and an enthusiasm for well-crafted cocktails….hanging out with him is always an adventure. And, then there’s the view. Disclaimer….only one of the photographed drinks was mine. Just sayin’.

Emergency Announcement! Due To The Overwhelming Number Of Entries In The Good Morning Gloucester Cutest Dog Contest Sponsored By SeaPort Veterinary Hospital We Are Re-Opening The Number Of Entries

I set the original number of entries at 64 because I wanted to set up March Madness style brackets. We filled 64 entries within 3 hours and despite trying to post and alert people that the field of 64 was full, the entries just kept pouring in. There are 40+ more entries that came in overnight. So we’re going to re-open the entry period and expand the field.

Please read how we’re gonna do it.

Firstly if people have several dogs, either pick one dog of your multiple dogs or submit one photo with all of them in it.

I will accept entries through midnight tonight.

We will have an vote-in pre-contest in which all the dog photos will be entered and the top 64 vote getters will move on to the March Madness style bracket tournament.

So if we have 150 entries by midnight tonight, I will post them all in a gallery with their names and a poll beneath them. The top vote getters move on. In the case of ties of number of votes at the bottom of the list, the brackets will be filled in order of when their dog’s entry was sent in.

First prize $250 SeaPort Vet Gift Certificate and $250 Cape Ann Gift Certificate, Second Prize $150 SeaPort Vet Gift Certificate and $150 Cape Ann Gift Certificate, Third Prize $100 SeaPort Vet Gift Certificate and $100 Cape Ann Gift Certificate
