Dia del Muerto Celebration at Pleasant St Tea and Coffee Co

From Kitt Cox-

Hola Familia y Amigos,

Sunday November One, we hope you’ll join us for our second recognition and celebration of the Day of the Dead, or Dia del Muerto….it’s a chance to reflect and remember those of our family and friends who are dead, but never really gone from our thoughts and often, even our actions.

We’ll be at the Pleasant Street Tea Company in Gloucester beginning around two in the afternoon. Last year, it proved to be  the perfect environment for our first gathering. It’s a great space to sing, reflect, tell a story, connect with a friend or share a poem.

There’s a fine selection of food and beverages available, and we’ll provide a microphone to any and all with a tale to tell or past lives to ponder … both tears and chortles are encouraged.

Please let us know if you’re interested in joining us on Pleasant Street …it will make our planning a bit easier.

Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ the Rhumb Line

“Just in time for Halloween, We have Orville Gidding’s dental work on display  for you this Thursday at the Rumline. Yes, the Imam of Ipswich returns, leading us all, once again, to a little higher ground, where we can all get dizzy from lack of oxygen. Thankfully, one air conditioner still works, I think.
Behind it all we also have “Li’l Steevee” Chaggaris, on Drumps, skins, and noise, As well as GregT. on goiter, and , of course meeself, on base, with two out and a full count. See what happens.”

NEXT WEEK: over the Cliff Spenser, for hire, and Joseph Stalin Screamering on Drums. Be there!

Where Zat Winner!

After 2 rounds of clues, Scott finally came up with the location of the spooks.

They’re on the corner of Millett and Summit St.

Scott, how’d you figure it out?

Congratulations and you can pick up your t-shirt at Joey’s at the end of the week!

Up past the sub shop, (Destino’s)

Church on the right, (Our Lady’s)

One, two streets (Mt. Vernon,Warner)

Field in sight,(Burnham’s Field)

Street with a W, (Warner St.)

Not with a B, (Burnham St.)

Then past the street that starts with a T, (Trask St.)

Right up M street (Millett St.)

on the corner of  S, (Summit St.)

You’ll find those spooks,

and the end of your quest!
