Timelapse Video- The Launching of The Beaver From East Gloucester Marine Railways From Good Morning Gloucester

Bringing it to you first, natch!

This is 18 minutes of video compressed into 1 minute 40 seconds.

The new Boston Tea Party Museum replica ship was launched this morning from East Gloucester Marine Railways.

The ship will be part of a Tea Party museum including the replica ships from the Tea Party and is scheduled to open in June in the Fort Point Channel in Boston.  The spot of the museum  is close to the original site of the December 1773 tea party, where colonists dumped tea in the harbor to protest British taxes.

MasterChef Meets Seafood Throwdown
Event to Highlight Importance of our Local Fishermen & Local Seafood

Gloucester, MA – Not only do we step out of downtown Gloucester for this week’s Seafood Throwdown, but we bring in MasterChef! Our old friend and two-time Seafood Throwdown competitor Christian Collins is coming back to judge this week’s event. It just happens he’s a competitor himself, but on Fox’ MasterChef where he’s in the top 4!

This week’s competing teams are from Amelia’s at 78 Thatcher Road in Gloucester who will be represented by Chef and owner Amelia Lopes and her daughter Danielle Vossantos. And just down the backshore at 125 Atlantic Road is the Breakfast Cafe at the Atlantis Ocean Front Inn. Chef Jessica O’Leary will be joined by MaryEllen Gigliotti.

Joining Christian in the judging will be Heather Atwood blogger on "Food for Thought" and columnist/video author for the Gloucester Daily Times, The Eagle-Tribune, and the Newburyport News. Joining her will be Laurie Lufkin of Essex, winner of cooking contests from the Essex Clamfest, Topsfield Fair, Florida, the Food Channel and Family Circle Magazine and back. Emcees will again be Peter van Ness of ", The New Music Pipeline" and Joey Ciaramitaro from "GoodMorningGloucester My View of Life on the Docks" blog. All we are missing is Gordon Ramsey!

here’s how Christian Fared The last Time he Competed In a Cape Ann Farmer’s Market Seafood Throwdown

Way To Go Team!

The 2011 Horribles Parade is in the books and the complete list of thank-yous will be coming along with videos from the beginning stages of building the GMG Float right on through to the award ceremony along with more comprehensive photos of the entire crew from Manny Simoes and David Cox.

If you see any of our sponsors around town extend my gratitude for their support and congratulate them on our Bringing home the Judge’s Choice Award!- Peter and Vickie VanNess from GimmeSound, The Borge’s At The Lone Gull , Eric at Passports and Ed Collard’s House Doctors Handyman Services.

There’s not much more fun that you can have than walk with your family and friends in the greatest parade of them all, The Fishtown Horribles Parade!

Our man Craig Kimberley got some incredible footage along the parade route which will take some time to edit down but he tells me we will have a short video trailer some time today and the longer more comprehensive version later on.

Sista Felicia on lead once again proves why she’s the best at what she does and that’s why I have complete confidence in her.

I had zero to do with the construction of the Float, all the thanks go to the following people-

Huge thanks to our builders-

Bro-In Law Barry, Sista Felicia, Ed Collard, Jeremy Frost Construction, our mother “Mammaw”, Next Door Neighbor Dianna (whose last name I’d never get right in a million years) Frank, Joey and Mikayla Ciolino,Taylor Frost and Amandacakes and BJ.  Paulie Walnuts  printed up the limited run t-Shirts and Greg Harris’ Briarwood Landscaping  provided us with the trailer.  Frank and Joey Ciolino did the truck detailing.  Will Hunt  donated the PA system.

All our GMG peeps who showed up to walk and bring the energy including our title sponsor Vickie Van Ness and Johnny on the Sound system.  Ed Collard was a man possessed on sticker duty.  Mammaw who tried to make sure the kids who were out of reach for candy still got some along the route.  The Ryan clan- Patrick J-WOW, Molly and Emma who showed up and worked the crowd along with a roller skating Paul Morrison!

Our Squirt Gunners Connor and Kyle Frost,Seth Murray and BJ (Beasley).  Danny Powers and Sarah Francis,Lexi Orlando, Caroline Murray and Emma powers along with Amandacakes and Snoop Maddie Mad on Candy Patrol.  Manny Simoes and David Cox for capturing it in pictures (which we will see in future postings).

Our lobsters- Lanie and Skyler Noble and The Bean.   Our Homies- Vickie and Johnny Van Ness, Emma Powers and Deanna (Whose last name I’ll never get right in a million years).  Our mermaids, Emma and Molly Ryan, Taylor Frost.

And how bout that Craig Kimberly on video duty who goy a ton of footage with multiple cameras of the community along the parade route!

We had lobsters, we had mermaids, we had homies, but most of all we had each other to share and make even more new memories in the community we love.

You guys are the best!

The Boss

(much better pictures than I took will be coming all week long from the parade route)

Cape Ann Brewing New Joint- First Look Pictures

In the tradition of Good Morning Gloucester always bringing you into the local joints first we yet again bring you the first photos taken by media inside Cape Ann Brewing and an interview with owner Jeremy Goldberg who gives the rundown of what the differences between the old place and the new.

It’s what we do- bring you inside first.

The bar is looooooong.  Lots of wood, a beautiful deck overlooking the working waterfront, serious kitchen and wide open.  This space is sure to bring in locals as well as craft beer enthusiasts in just another fantastic reason to make Gloucester a destination.

The kitchen will be serving comfort food and some very interesting seafood dishes (I’ll leave the details for our video interview with Jeremy Goldberg)

Video at 8AM
