From the Doughnut clockwise:
An actual Butternut Crunch Doughnut and Nisu Bread from Brothers’ Brew Coffee Shop Rockport. The Butternut was still warm. BB has to start cranking more of these puppies out. They run out by 9AM most mornings but if you go here Saturday early you can nail one.
Mann’s Cherry Pie from Mann Orchards in Methuen. Looked too good to pass up.
Two Bell Jars of Ma’s Tomato Marmalade, one hot, one sweet. Taste test said these were going in the basket. 2 Cross Street Gloucester. This place also had some awesome pickles and told us where to get fresh turmeric to make our own.
Sasquatch Smokehouse Smoked Mussels. Holy Cow, taste test said these had to go and next Saturday the smoked Cod will have to go too. 44 Whittemore Street Gloucester.
Porterhouse Steak from Seaview Farm 38 South Street. I’ll get back to you on the taste test but local grass fed beef? A big Rubber Thumbs up. [added edit] Wow, the porterhouse was cooked perfectly by Chef Ted (son) and was very tasty.
What we did not get: Twinlights Soda. Missed it. Fresh made pasta: we were going to circle back but forgot. That’s OK. This is going to be a Saturday 9AM (parking available then) ritual during the summer. And I will hunt some of these places down in the near future.
I’m not listing stuff here because I can’t keep up but Rubber Duck has found someone else who updates several times a day. Follow BearskinNeck.Net on Facebook. <<<Click.
That’s it. OK, I’ll give you three examples why BearskinNeck.Net is awesome. Today Rubber Duck found out:
1) The Rockport Dump is open on Sunday from 8AM to 11:45 AM until Nov 10. Huge news. This is why I love Rockport and gladly pay my town taxes. Now those fish guts and lobster shells from the Saturday festivities do not fester in the garage until God knows when.
2) The Red Skiff has several Specials including Crab Cake Benedict and Corn Beef Benedict. Make mine a double!
3) Brothers’ Brew is open at 7AM every single day all summer With a fresh made Butternut Crunch Doughnut with my name on it.
4) Why stop at three? Forgot the Farmers Market 9am-1pm at Harvey Park on Saturday! Harvey Park? End of Broadway if you hit the lighthouse in the middle of the street because you saw a large rabbit named Harvey you should park.
BearskinNeck.Net one stop shopping so you don’t spend more than three minutes on a computer every day. Today is the first day of summer! Get off that goddamn computer and go bite someone in the butt!
I don’t want to be one of those people who’s on his death bed and says, “I didn’t spend enough time on the Internet.” -Andy Borowitz
A few Rockport shops and galleries were open on Sunday and thankfully, there was hot coffee to be had at both Bean & Leaf and Brothers’ Brew. Bearskin Neck was pretty beat up, with chunks of asphalt upended, the buildings covered in ice, and debris scattered all over the place. Residents were hard at work cleaning up and were very gracious to those of us who were wandering on a Sunday stroll while they were trying to make their homes and businesses accessible and safe.
