We had a ball! Thanks to Joe Ciolino, Weathervane–one of our first stops so we can meet Mark Parisi and grab the next Off the Mark calendar which he kindly signs– and all involved for such a festive Gloucester tradition. Our second annual stop is across the street– we make sure to buy a couple of new toys from Toodeloos for the stuff a bus toy drive parked right there.

The Cape Ann Museum is closed today for this festive and cherished women’s only soiree hosted by the museum’s active Fitz Henry Lane Society and Red Cottage Society committees in concert with the outstanding museum staff. There is ample time for lingering points of vantage throughout the exhibits, holiday shopping, and dining in the galleries upstairs and downstairs.

The 2016 gathering is catered by Timothy S. Hopkins. Mariposa founder and designers are the featured speakers. Felicia Ciaramitaro (SistaFelicia) has featured Mariposa designs in her work and on the GMG blog.

For many museum guests, it will be the last chance to visit the special exhibition featuring recent Cape Ann Museum acquisitions, closing Sunday, December 11th. The extraordinary exhibition with a modest title Voicing the Woods: Jeremy Adams Instrument Maker will be up through February 26th.

Thanks to Savour Wine and Cheese for a New Favorite Holiday Tradition

Clearly the holidays are about 90% about the boys, but I can’t lie, one of my favorite holiday traditions has become Ladies’ Night at Savour Wine and Cheese.  This is the 3rd year in a row that I have gone, with the same friends, and I am already looking forward to next year.

First of all the wine selection is extensive and wonderful.  In addition, the cheeses that are available are incredible.  It is also a perfect destination for a gift for a friend, guest, or dinner host.  Each holiday season I have shopped for at least two people on my list at Savour.

Beach Gourmet also operates their primary kitchen out of Savour. It is so fun to chat with them, watch them prepare amazing  dishes in their open, exhibition style kitchen, and obviously taste what they serve.  They are beyond amazing.

Ladies’ Night brought a wonderful crowd of wine sipping, holiday strolling women who clearly enjoyed sampling the wine, but also continuously expressed how fantastic Savour’s inventory is…and how yummy the food was.

We stayed from 5:30-6:15, shared some laughs, bought some gifts, drank some wine, and then moved on.

Thanks so much to the staff for creating such a lovely evening!

First and only thing I’ve heard about it was the lone promo I got from Pop Gallery.

Chop Chop!  Send in your ladies night promo here-

Edit:  Who is in charge of Downtown any more?  The Chamber?  The Downtown Merchant Group?  Is it every man for themselves down there?  Nothing in Todays Times, nothing from anyone except Pop Gallery seems strange.

Eastern Point Lit House:

We’re having Eastern Point Lit House’s Author Night that Kim posted two days ago in conjunction with Ladies Night. We didn’t really include the words Ladies Night in our promos because we thought there would be more noise about it and everyone would assume. I’m surprised too that there wasn’t more promo for this. Anyway, we’re having a raffle for cool gifts, etc. Nine authors, one night. Signed books for all ages and interests make great gifts!
