The Spot in Georgetown

I like to try new restaurants and I keep the Serenitee restaurants at the top of that list for obvious reasons (rewards and points for example). Not one of them has disappointed me so we decided to take the half hour or so ride up 133 to give The Spot in Georgetown a try.

It was easy to find, easy to park. We were greeted warmly and served efficiently by Nathaniel. There’s a large bar area with some seating as well as a separate area with tables. When we arrived, it was fairly quiet but soon filled up. Several young families were there which indicates a friendly atmosphere and menu for a wide range of customers. I had the Rueben and Jim has the chicken sandwich. We each cleaned our plates and were too full for dessert. I am glad we took the ride to give this a try. We will return. Thanks Serenitee for the friendly atmosphere and delicious foods in each location.

Expert Assembly From GMG Jim

I recently ordered this rack from Amazon for a little less than $50. The sale included an offer for “expert assembly” costing an additional $125 (you read that right…$125 to expertly assembly a towel rack…) I offered Jim a beer and it was assembled in about 10 minutes. It’s a crazy world we are living in……gotta wonder who orders $125 expert assembly for a towel rack? I will admit, there have been some late Christmas Eves when I would have gladly paid for toy assembly…….but not a towel rack. Really Amazon? C’mon…….

Great Meal at Happy Humpback Cafe

We decided to give the newly opened Happy Humpback Cafe on Lexington Ave in Magnolia a try the other day. Jim got a breakfast sandwich–the Half Moon; and I tried the Italian Grinder. Breakfast and lunch are each served all day, which solves an issue for Jim and I! Counter service is efficient, seating is comfortably arranged, and all needs seem to be anticipated with available condiments etc. Follow them on Instagram or Facebook. Online ordering available here. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Congratulations Aaron and staff!

Gloucester’s First Snowfall of ’22

Some scenes from the snowfall earlier this week featuring some of our favorite statues. It was a little bit grey out there but our friends held up admirably. Additional pictures from that day can be found on my Facebook page: Pat D’s Photos and Adventures if you are interested. Check it regularly!

Temporary Essex Bridge Under Construction on 133

Construction has begun on the temporary bridge over the causeway in Essex on 133 to facilitate the replacement of the current bridge. This temporary bridge is expected to be completed by the spring for use throughout the new bridge project construction. The new bridge construction is expected to begin this summer and continue until Fall 2023. None of this is expected to cause disruption in traffic through Essex on 133.
