Local Art

We have some VERY talented people among us in Gloucester MA. One of them is local artist Kathy Roberts.

Here is a little Bio about Kathy Roberts:

One can express themselves in many ways. Creativity can be inspired by your imagination, resourcefulness or a vision you may have; something you are working towards. I choose to express myself through watercolor painting. A medium that requires dedication and persistents, but allows you to choose your favorite paint brush, color palette, and paper and finish with a painting of something you have interpreted, your own vision. I enjoy painting fresh flowers, landscapes, seascapes and still lives using lots of color.

I am a native of Gloucester, MA, a seacoast community, which has inspired and challenged me to capture its natural surroundings. Those include the views of the inner harbor, studying our numerous beaches, its shifting sands, dunes and changing tides. Daily walks around the backshore, call my attention to the changing sunlight on the warm, rugged rocks and the forceful ocean waves splashing against them. And of course our native spring and summer flowers have always inspired me to paint my interpretation of their shapes, vibrant colors and delicate beauty.

Artists often are drawn to subjects that have a strong emotional appeal. For me it is Cape Ann’s scenic coast, where I spent all my summers at the beach as a child and still do as an adult. I always feel at peace when I am painting in that environment. I look to capture the essence of a place and convey the emotion I feel with the viewer. Being on location helps me to maintain a spontaneous approach.

SAVE YOUR BACK!

So with snow on the way at anytime, a great way too save your back and keep your toes toasty warm, is to get someone else to plow your lot or driveway. There is a great service right here in your backyard. A plow will come to our home or business ( depending on lot size of business ) and plow each and every time it snows. For a set price of $480.00 ( with the coupon below ) you can be plowed on every snowfall. Unlimited snow plowing – what a concept. It is pretty similar to an all you can eat buffet, but with snow. The company sits right here in Gloucester MA and is called Precision Snowplowing. Yes – this is the same company owned by Tony Carrao called Precision Roofing! Tony has snow plow services during the winter as an extension to his roofing company. I have spent some time with Tony over the last few years, and have seen the quality work and customer services that he delivers. So why break your back this winter – Give Tony a call and let Precision Snowplowing handle all your plowing this winter. Don’t forget, this would be a great gift for a family member or friend.

WHEN IN ROMA……..EAT!

Udine4less_LOGO2So I Wasn’t sure if I was going to much of anything today, seeing how I was up late last night tossing and turning after watching the Patriots somehow give that game away last night to the Colts. I am not sure how many of you watched the game till the end, but WHAT THE BLEEP HAPPENED!!!!!! Ok, had to get that out of my system.

Anyway – There is a new restaurant in town called Roma Pizza and Subs down on the Boulevard. There has been a few restaurants in this spot the last couple of years, but I think that this one has a chance to stick around for awhile. They have a great menu as well as daily specials and soup of the day. The two owners are Pat and Ray, and they seem to fit right in. They have a Family deal that will feed the whole family, and the place is spotless. I am attaching a few deals so that you can give them a try. ENJOY!!!

Why Not Bowl?

Udine4less_LOGO2Through my travels of finding and creating great restaurant deals, I have also found some other businesses in town that give a good deal or two. One of those businesses in town that gives a great deal is Cape Ann Lanes. I am not sure how many of you have visited Cape Ann Lanes since it has been revamped, but the new owner has done a fantastic job. It is a great place to take your family, or just head out for a night with friends. The fact that I can go bowl a few strings and have a beer is good enough for me. The repainted, added new features, and put in some fantastic wide screen screens. Truthfully in my eyes, one of the best alleys on the North Shore. And yes – we have a GMG deal alert. You can get a free string of bowling for all in your bowling party…..Check it out below.

Native Clam Plate $7.95? What?

Udine4less_LOGO2Ok, I wouldn’t of believed it if I had not seen it with my own eyes. There is a new restaurant in town called Culina’s. They are on Washington Street where Trupiano’s use to be back in the day. A few places have come and gone, but the newest owner that has inhabited the building is trying something pretty bold, and from what i hear, pretty tasty. Dan down at Culina’s is offering a Native Clam or Scallop Plate for $9.95. Now wait a minute, thats not all. Dan has put up a coupon on Udine4less that will take an additional $2.00 off the price to bring it down to $7.95. Yes – I said $7.95 for Native Clams, Fries and Cole Slaw. As I am writing this, Culina’s is closed for the night, or I would have gone down and took a photo for GMG to behold. Right now, Culina’s is a takeout restaurant, but soon may add a few tables for dining in. I do promise to get a photo and post it here soon. In the mean time, looks like we  have a GMG Deal Alert!!!!
