Essex-

The One World Coffee House will salute the magical folk revival group The Kingston Trio on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 8 p.m.

The celebration will include the songs “Tom Dooley,” “This Land is Your Land,” “Greenback Dollar,” “Where Have all the Flowers Gone,” “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “Scotch and Soda,” “MTA” and a score of others. This will be an evening of remembrance and joy as the musicians perform individually and collectively in a revue of the songs that launched the folk music revival in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Scheduled performers include Daisy Nell & Capt. Stan and the Crabgrass Band, Travelers Three, Russ Sollitto, Allyn Hawes, Tamarac, Sid Tracey and others.

Be part of the celebration and sing along on this exciting evening with all the songs from the “old days.” If you have any old Kingston Trio records, or memorabilia, bring them along and share the covers and memories.

This performance is a fundraiser for the One World Coffee House, with all donations to the Coffee House Fund. Requested donation is $15. Reservations, strongly recommended, can be made by calling 978-325-3252.

Great Gloucester Burger War- Elliotts $12.00

While expensive, you get what you pay for and this burger was OUTSTANDING from top to bottom.  The bun- awesome, the thick bacon- awesome, the brie cheese-awesome, the smoked apple slices-awesome, the burger was cooked to perfection.  It was served with fries that rival the Joey Fries at Passports but they give it a twist with the shaved Parmesan.


Lobster Boat For Sale $60,000

While bouncing around in Rose’s parking lot at 4:30AM this morning (because really where else would I rather be at 4:30AM?) I stumbled upon this lobster boat that is tucked in the corner.  It looks like new construction and has pretty nice lines.
