Cindy Hendrickson Pitches Cape Ann Foodies Tour

Hey Joey,
It was so much fun seeing you at the Stage Fort Park Visitor’s Center Opening.  Thank you for posing with the new Cape Ann Foodies Signature Fork.
Here are a few pictures of some of the Usual Tourism Suspects mugging with the Fork. 
Cape Ann Foodies is the creation of Gloucester local Patrick Halloran.  What a great idea – a walking tour that combines History, Food, and Local Beer.  It is fun and filling!
Check out the website:  http://www.capeannfoodietours.com or give him a call at 617-902-8291.
I am excited to be one of his tour guides this year; just need to lose the crutch and I’m good to go.
Cheers!

Meeting artists at the Cape Ann Museum

Last Saturday, the Cape Ann Museum had an event where several local artists demonstrated their work. Due to parish commitments, I arrived late and missed Michael Foley’s demonstration of his stonework. You can find an interview with him here, and see his website here. Michael is both a skilled stoneworker and a talented musician. He will be giving another demonstration towards the end of this month, and I hope not to miss that one!

A few other artists were still doing their demonstrations when I arrived. It was great to talk with them and see their work!

Beth Williams works with glass, and has a studio and gallery practically next door to the museum:

Leslie’s demonstration was interactive, helping visitors to make things like jewelry, bookmarks, and coffee stirrers out of thick wire (subsequently beaten flat). I tried my hand at it and came up with this… I’m not sure if it is a drink stirring stick or a bookmark, or something altogether different, but it was fun!

Hey, Joey…Jackie Ganim DeFalco and I just got back from a few days in NY….here are a couple of photos for you. There might be another with us actually in it too, but these looked like keepers to start with and it will take me a bit to go through them all!
