TONIGHT An Evening with PATTY LARKIN at Cape Ann Community Cinema – 4/3/15

An Evening with PATTY LARKIN
Friday, April 3 ~ 8:00 pm show / 7:30 doors
21 Main St., Gloucester 01930
$27.50 mbr/$30 ga ~ 978-309-8448 ~ www.capeanncinema.com

Patty Larkin redefines the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. Acoustic Guitar hails her “soundscape experiments” while Rolling Stone praises her “evocative and sonic shading.” She has been described as “riveting” (Chicago Tribune), “hypnotic” (Entertainment Weekly) and a “drop-dead brilliant” performer (Performing Songwriter).

Still Green, Patty’s 13th album, plays out in Technicolor sound images, a kaleidoscope of sun and sea that travels from the fluorescent-lit hallways of grief to the warm pull of love, family and nature. This collection of new songs chronicles Patty’s search for relief, respite and solace during a time when she lost both of her parents, and witnessed a sister suffer a serious health issue.

Spring — at long last !!! The Vernal Equinox 2015 From Thomas Philbrook

ZIP-A-DEE-DOO-DAH — Spring — at long last !!! The Vernal Equinox finally takes place on Friday, March 20th at 6:45 pm EDT. Wishing you all a warm, sweet, colorful and joy-packed Spring. We sure deserve it.

Would you be offended if…

Who pays on the first date?  In the year 2015 there really isn’t a right or wrong answer.

Some men get offended when a woman insists on paying the bill and some women get offended when the men are adamant on paying. Is it who asks out who first is the one that pays? Is it the person that picks the place? Nevertheless it can be an awkward moment at the end of the meal.

2015 Crane Beach Parking Permit Stickers on Sale

Hi Joey,

It’s hard to believe we’re thinking about beach season, but it’s nice to have something to look forward to! That said, while I know Gloucester residents have Good Harbor beach to enjoy, I thought I would share the below release announcing Crane Beach Parking Stickers are now on sale for the year. Hope you are well and, as always, thanks for your consideration!

The Trustees of Reservations Announce

2015 Crane Beach Parking Permit Stickers on Sale

Beach Sticker Program Offers Significant Savings on Year-Round Visits

to One of the Northeast’s Most Beautiful Beaches


The Trustees of Reservations (The Trustees) announced today that Crane Beach Parking Permits are for sale online. Purchasing a 2015–2016 Crane Beach Parking Permit sticker will allow Trustees’ members to park at Crane Beach for no additional charge, offering a significant savings for frequent beach visitors. The cost of the sticker for Trustees’ members is $75.

Blair Steck, Director of Membership Acquisitions for The Trustees, encourages members to take advantage of the sticker program noting, “it’s the best beach deal to be found on the North Shore. For just $75, Trustees’ members can take enjoy the beach all day, all year – whether it’s taking long walks along the pristine shoreline in the off-seasons, spending a sun-filled Fourth of July with family and friends, or plunging in the Atlantic for a refreshing dip mid-August.”

The parking sticker program is available to Trustees’ members. Membership in The Trustees starts at just $37 for students and seniors, $47 for individuals, and $67 for families. As a Trustees’ member, not only do you enjoy significant savings at Crane Beach, but you’ll also enjoy discounts at other Trustees properties and programs locally and across the state – from the Castle Hill Summer Concert Picnic Series and the luxurious Inn at Castle Hill in Ipswich, to Appleton Cooks! workshops and farm-to-fork events.

Crane Beach is open year-round, 8am to sunset, with restroom facilities available and rangers on-site daily. Dog walking and horseback riding is permitted on the beach in the winter months, from October 1—March 31. Visit www.thetrustees.org/greendogs for permitting and information. From Memorial Day to Labor Day the beach is fully staffed with rangers, lifeguards, and EMTs. The Crane Beach store, featuring refreshments and merchandise, is open daily as well as the bathhouses, with toilets and changing areas, and outside showers and picnic area. The beach staff provides transportation to the beachfront for visitors needing extra assistance.

For nonmembers and Trustees’ members who do not purchase a sticker, 2015 beach pricing remains the same this year. Nonmembers pay $20 on weekdays and $25 on weekends and holidays during the summer beach season (Memorial Day to Labor Day) and Trustees members without a sticker pay $10 on weekdays and $15 on weekends and holidays. Beach admission price is reduced after 3pm and during the offseason.
