Wishing all our Readers a Joyous Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Peace throughout the New Year ❤

December’s Full Cold Moon Descending


Thank You, Santa!

In Rockport, Santa comes to town twice.  He comes once, by lobster boat in early December, to help light the town Christmas Tree.  He comes back Christmas morning, after a very long night, so that the town’s children can say “thank you” for bringing Christmas into their homes.



Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, and Wishing All Our Readers a New Year Filled with Peace, Hope, and Joy


Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!

Wednesdays with Fly Amero “The Amero Family Christmas” at The Rhumb Line this Wednesday 7:00pm 12.23.2015


This week’s Dinner Special:
Meatloaf Dinner – $10.95

Wednesday, December 23rd – 7pm
Here we go again: The AMERO FAMILY CHRISTMAS!


It has become an unstoppable tradition. So very festive and fun. Sister Linda and Brother J.B. jump on
the Rhumb Line sleigh once again as we ride through the night with joyous song and merriment. I’ll have
a brand new Christmas tune to showcase, Linda knocks us out every year, J.B. has his own surprises in
store… and the rest is future history. Let us sit by Fred’s cozy, imaginary fire and toast to a bright holiday
season and the wonderful friendships we all share on this tiny island! It kicks off early… 7-10pm. ~ Fly
Dinner with great music!
*Each week features a special, invited musical guest
Dave Trooper’s Kitchen…
Prepared fresh weekly by “Troop”… always good!
Plus a fine, affordable wine menu!
12/30 – TBA
1/6/16 – Jon Butcher

Looking forward……to seeing you there 🙂

Merry Christmas (even before Thanksgiving)

Lest we all forget amidst our fun poking  jabs at each other’s tree-

Merry Christmas 🙂 From Gloucester To Rockland

as an aside (at the bank the other day I heard Christmas muzak a full week before we even had Thanksgiving)  WTF!

Here’s some more pics from last years Gloucester Lobster Trap Tree-

Ya think they have anything this cool in Anytown, or Plainsville USA? No freakin way! This is another reason Gloucester Rocks!

If you would like to help out building the tree or know any lobstermen who would like to donate traps to use they sure could use a hand-
