Alicia Unleashed- The Mini Viva

Episode 105-The Mini Viva!!!

Weeeee’re baaaaaack! Did you miss us?!

FIESTA CAST 6 BABYYYYYYY!

We got Alicia, BSide and of course our resident Fiesta Mayor/Queen Samantha Barrett! Even Emmet stops by to give us some impressive VIIIIIIIIVAS! Props to Samo and ‘The Crazy Hat Ladies’ for our epic intro!

Probably our shortest episode ever and shortest Fiesta Cast…It’s not MINI VIVA FER NUFIN?!

We chat about live music being back (we see you Neon90s),

Can we also talk about how Sam refuses to have a gap in “Pin Life” and made her own again this year?!

The Island Cowboy is back in the saddle and Runaround Sound got the band together to give us 3rd of July feels on the Boulevard!

Shoutout to @glostagear for the amazing shirt also featured on our cover!

Be safe this weekend and be kind to hospitality, like Sam says “Don’t be a gahgutzah”

See you soon Mom’s Kitchen!

The half St. Peter- 2020 Fiesta Cast

 

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR!
The Half St. Peter..aka 2020’s Fiestacast

Or aka “BSide will edit the shit out of this”

There may not be an altar at Fort square, no seine boats or Dory races in the Harbor, no zazitzas in front of the club. BUT ALICIA UNLEASHED WILL STILL HAVE OUR FIESTA CAST…SCREW YOU COVID.

Happy 16th birthday to Tyler D! Alicia discusses him coming in to the world in basically preventing his father from walking the pole. BSide discusses (maybe for far too long about her mother going through process for a Double Lung Transplant)..it ties in to Fiesta.

AND SAM BARRETT IS BACK. Also Bside’s neighbor Nikkita silently joins in.

Join us for this wild podcast ride (it’s not like you have plans)…VIIIIIIII….oh wait…

See if you can spot BSide’s editing magic.

 

SNAPSHOTS FROM “NONNA, WHAT IS ST. PETER’S FIESTA” AT THE GLOUCESTER STAGE COMPANY!

On the Saturday during Fiesta, my granddaughter Charlotte and I had the joy of attending Nonna, What is St. Peter’s Fiesta, a Gloucester Stage Company original adaption of the beautiful book of the same name, written by Laura Ventimiglia. The production was fantastic, the kids wonderfully talented, and I think it was so successful that Nonna, What is St. Peter’s Fiesta is going to become a tradition at Gloucester Stage.

Many, many thanks to Laura and Heidi for inviting Charlotte and I. Charlotte, who is not quite two, had a wonderful time–the show is appealing to a wide range of ages–from the very youngest to the very oldest nonnas and nonnos in the audience.

CONFETTI FIESTA KIDS!

Greasy Pole Walkers and the Fiesta Families are the most fun and beautiful to photograph and to film. Thank you so very much for a wonderful week of friendship, fun, photographing, and filming. This week I hope so much to have time to look at the footage of Derrick Hopkins and post his three winning walks. Viva San Pietro!
