Final Mug Up of 2012

It was a great final Mug Up on Rocky Neck Sunday.  Although we didn’t do food competitions this year like last, only the blueberry bake one, I have to say that Evelyn Howe won the best contribution to a Mug Up this season with her pumpkin cheesecake with praline topping - which topped Ann Kennedy’s candied bacon with chocolate sauce, which came in really close to Gigi Mederos’ pickled zucchini which doesn’t sound like much, but was tastebud tantalizing.  Many people brought wonderful additions to the Mug Up fare this season, but these three homemade contributions were spectacular.  Thanks Evelyn, Ann and Gigi. 

It was nice to have Melissa and Bill at Mug Up as well as regulars Donna and Rick Ardizzoni, Sue Lovett and Don Boye from Island Arts & Hobby (which is a great art supply store for those of you artists out there who haven’t checked it out yet – no need to go to Beverly unless you just feel like driving).  Also lovely Brenda Malloy, Caroline Kwas, Sinikka Nogelo, and the ever handsome Ed Collard and Marty Luster were there.  The highlight of Mug Up was getting to see Paul Morrison dance gangnam style!

Until next season!

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

  2. Congrats, EJ, on another successful summer on the Island. The menu sounds delightful, especially the pumpkin cheese cake with praline topping.

    We missed the dancing? Dang, I knew we should have gotten there earlier!

    And not just any dancing – Paul Morrison doing gangnam style pony dancing. You missed it!
