Boy did I screw up. As cub reporter here at GMG I have a couple of defined tasks. My two big ones are cover the arrival of Rockport Santa and cover seasonal openings. I think I have nailed Santa pretty well the past three years but today I get the email I dread and that is I have failed miserably on the seasonal openings. I can blame it on a new beak or keeping up with Rubber Duck (crap, she has got a hollow leg when it comes to boilermakers) but today I blew it big time.
The Cupboard opened today! The Cupboard Opened Today! They always have a soft opening on the first Thursday of May and I plumb forgot. I am cutting my Friday short so I can order a Fish sandwich with cheese tomorrow delivered onto that well worn and familiar formica then maybe take it down to Cressy beach and eat the lunch that defines the beginning of the season. Or as Churchill once said, the end of the beginning of the season because The Cupboard is open! Get that boat in the water! Go catch a striper!
