Bluefin Blowout link for the auction items that are now live to the public.

The tuna in specific were cut and finished by the carpentry department at the Gloucester High School and then painted by some of Cape Ann’s best artists. 

I’m so pleased by the way that they turned out. All proceeds benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. If you could help spread the word that would be great. Thank you !

Pingree hosted the regional tournament. Exciting recap from FYS.

“The team had an incredible undefeated season all the way through the playoffs. The regular season had the team leading their division with a record of 7-0-1.

The record is impressive, but two things about the record only show up when looking into that stats:

– 5 of the 8 games were decided by 2 or less goals. So, nearly all games were very tight and hard played. 

– Only 4 goals were scored against the team over the regular season. Excellent defense and goal tending by this team, highlights not found when looking at just the record. 

For the playoffs, this team received a first round BYE.

The Semi-Final game occurred on a hot Friday evening. The team looked like it was cruising into the final game with a 2-0 lead with 10 minutes remaining when the unthinkable happened. The team allowed 2 goals to score with minutes left in the game. Regular time ended at 2-2, and the heat was really cranking on this team now. This team has gone into OT in the past during their winter season, so they knew what to do. The team scored the game winning goal with just minutes left in OT, avoiding the dreaded Penalty Kick tie-breaker. 

The Final game was early Sunday morning, on father’s day. The girls were ecstatic and ready to go at game time which is good because the other team came out strong. The opponents appeared bigger and stronger than our young team, but our defense being our strength all season was up to the challenge. The game was tied 0-0 at half. After a brief halftime, the team was more determined than ever and came out aggressive and started to dominate play. The team just could not find the back of the net.


Until about 5 minutes remaining when they finally broke the draw and went ahead 1-0.


Congrats to the FYS Hurricanes team on an impressive season!”

Try Laneside Pub For Lunch

It might not come right to your mind when you are thinking about where to have lunch, but put Laneside Pub and Brewery at Cape Ann Lanes on Gloucester Ave in your rotation. This small pub adjoins the bowling lanes and will soon have outside dining as well. The atmosphere is pleasant and soothing, which might come as a surprise in a bowling alley. Jillian gets a shout out as our friendly server. We had a nice chat with owner Nick while his wife Caitlyn was busy with customers and children. When things might be hectic downtown, this is a logical choice for a nice quiet lunch.

I had the cheeseburger and Jim got their famous loaded tots. Jim also ordered Trophy, one of the brews which he enjoyed very much. Thanks guys!
