If you laugh and cry within the same ten minutes, you either need a vacation or you are sitting in the audience at a Don White show. This working class family man from Lynn, Massachusetts has emerged as the thoughtful songwriter of the decade whose relevance to our lives is evidenced by the powerful reaction he evokes at every concert. Come join us for this special night of live entertainment, with opening act and local favorite, Hooglio, who will row in all the way from his native Flustuania just for the show, during which he will spin comic musical tales of his beloved country.

Tickets are $15.00, and are available either online or at the box office on the night of the show.

DON’S PEERS RAVE:
“The audience went crazy for him. He’s by far the best new performer I’ve
seen in a long, long time. Believe me, he’s got it!” -Christine Lavin

AT THIS SPECIAL EVENT, WE WILL BE SERVING A VARIETY OF IPSWICH ALES.

Gloucester Gas Prices

The Cape Ann Gas Price Website Is No Longer.  I found a new one from automotive.com that has a limited amount of participating gas stations with current Gloucester Gas Prices

So the link in the blogroll to the right has this link for your reference once this post heads down off the page over time.

Gloucester Gas Prices

I jotted down some of the gas prices at local stations this morning 2/19/09 at 5:00AM

Here you go-

US Petroleum 2.099,2.199,2.299

Tally’s Washington Sq 1.999,2.159,2.299

Flanagan Square Service Station 1.959,2.099,2.159

Hess Self Serve 1.979,2.079,2.099

East Gloucester Richdale 1.999, 2.099,2.199

Interesting that the cheapest gas in town is also full serve at Flanagan Square.  Why anyone would pump their own gas and pay more to do it is beyond me.

If any of our readers drive through other parts of town and would like to update the gas station prices, feel free to do so in the comments under this post.

Joe Grillo’s Net Profit

Joe Grillo bought the Net Profit.  His old boat The Wanderer was old, tired and slow as molasses.  To say that Joe is happy about the upgrade would be an understatement.  Video at 8:00AM
