All your shopping done? If not, NYRE Buttons could save your butt
OK, you’ve had Ladies Night and Men’s Night, but you’re still not done. Or if you’re like me you haven’t started yet. We went to Men’s night last night and what did I do? Saw the Two Buddies Show at Alchemy, bought cheese, pate and olives at The Cave (I know I was supposed to by buying gifts, but I was hungry), talked with lots of people I don’t see every day and then it was late and Vickie and John (who had been Christmas shopping the whole time) wanted to go. Oh well, guess I’ll go back to plan A, which is to start my shopping at noon on Christmas Eve. Then I’m focused.
But wait! You don’t have to procrastinate like I do. You can get New Years Rockport Eve buttons for everybody still on your list. It really is one of the best entertainment values you will ever get on Cape Ann with dozens of artists performing all over Rockport from 6 to midnight — and beyond (see live music schedule here). Plus magic, puppetry, story telling, fortune telling, face painting, balloon making and lots more for kids and parents.
Here’s where you can get buttons:
John Tarr Store, Main St.
Smith hardware & Lumber at the Lumber Desk, 3 Station Square
Toad Hall Bookstore, Main St.
Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, Commercial St.
House of Raven, Main St.
Gloucester Music, Main St.
OK, now you’re done . . . and you can relax and enjoy all the great music this weekend. You’ve got over 30 choices between now and Sunday. See the full live music schedule here.
