Today on March 23 the seawater temperature is a balmy 48F and not the nippy 42F from a year ago. Summer is here and with it the openings of restaurants on Cape Ann.
Saturday, March 31, Top Dog of Rockport opens. A clam roll at a picnic table outside. That is my official start of the season. Might be chilly so go for a Hot Chihuahua Dog with Chili Cheese Fries.
Thursday, April 12, Lobsta Land Restaurant opens. Just say “Lobsta Land!” out loud three times. I feel better already. Check out the Lobsta Countdown on their website.
Thursday, April 12, Captain Carlo’s opens.
Thursday, April 19 The Rudder opens. The way the weather is going the new heaters on the deck won’t be needed.
Note to Restauratuers of Cape Ann: Do you want patrons when you open your doors this season? Then update your web page!! Update your facebook page!! I got these dates from updated pages. Too many places still had, “We’re closing this week for the winter, come back in the spring.” Not good. Update and make a comment on this post and I will add your restaurant.
