Professional and amateur ARTISTS compete to see who can make a pumpkin LOOK BEST.  Alchemy will donate $5 to the Open Door for every pumpkin entered.

Contestants do not need to be present at the event itself to win, they simply need to bring their carved pumpkin to Alchemy anytime between now and 7:00 pm on October 29th. The best looking pumpkin will earn its maker a $100 gift certificate with second place receiving $50.

Here are some ideas – but maybe someone should do a GMG pumpkin?

On Tuesday, October 29th, Alchemy’s Chef [and defending throw down champion] Scott Jensen will challenge Chef Stacy Cogswell of Regal Beagle to a throw down with the season’s #1 staple: the pumpkin.

While the chefs battle it out in the kitchen to see who can make pumpkin taste the best, there will also be a contest to see who can make it look the best. The restaurants are inviting artists and non-artists alike to enter their carved pumpkins in a contest, and for each pumpkin entered Alchemy will donate $5 to the Open Door.

At the challenge, every guest will receive a signature challenge cocktail made with Gloucester’s own Ryan & Wood spirits, a pumpkin dish from each chef, and the opportunity to cast their vote for the winner of both contests.

Contestants in the pumpkin carving challenge do not need to be present at the event itself to win, they simply need to bring their carved pumpkin to Alchemy anytime between now and 7:00 pm on October 29th. The best looking pumpkin will earn its maker a $100 gift certificate with second place receiving $50.

David Brown

If you heard any Billy Joel song from the 1980′s,

you’ve heard Dave Brown play guitar.
If you enjoyed Simon & Garfunkel’s “Concert for Central Park”,
you’ve heard Dave Brown play guitar.
If you come to Alchemy this Wednesday from 7-9pm, you can hear it again!
Gloucester has produced some amazing musicians, and it is a real privilege for me to have Dave join me this week. This should be good.
Oh, and don’t forget: it’ll be Ladies Night and there are some great food and drink specials.
I hope to see you,
John
