Let the Fun Begin!

joey with ardelle tree nail passes

Here we have Joey with treenails sticking out of his ears.  Treenails were used in ancient shipbuilding to secure the planks of the boat, and are still used today by builders like Harold Burnham at Burnham Shipyard in Essex on boats like the pinky schooner Ardelle.  These treenails are Ardelle passes, which Joey received yesterday at the gallery from Harold, delivered by Len Burgess, giving him passage on the Ardelle.

madfish opening night 2013

Last night was the opening of Madfish Grille and a bunch of us artists on Madfish Wharf went down after we closed our galleries to have dinner, courtesy of the generosity of our friend and fellow artist, Alma McLaughlin, who treated us.  I’ve been craving some of Jordan’s sushi, and last night ordered the Thunder, which did not disappoint, and even tasted more amazing than I remembered from last year.  The others who had sushi were equally pleased.  It was the first night the Madfish was open for the season and there were a few hitches.  The bar hadn’t yet been fully stocked so a couple of people in our group couldn’t get what they wanted to drink, and there were no lights on coming down Madfish Wharf, giving the appearance that the place was closed once it got dark.  Hopefully that will all be rectified before the weekend.  The service was great and the place looks beautiful.   If you’ve been hankering for some of Jordan’s (or Sang’s – who is back at Madfish this season and is getting hitched in June – sorry all you gals who has crushes), come on down to Madfish and get your fill.
