GMG Questions and Answers- Dawn Gadow

Dawn is the Director at Art Haven among many other things and is now part of the Block Party Committee!

How long have you lived in Gloucester?  Well, I’ve lived here for about a year. But I also lived here for the summer of 2008 and I think that’s when I knew I belonged. And I’ve worked here for almost two years.

What is your favorite season In Gloucester?
You can’t beat the summers downtown – the long days, people outside enjoying the beautiful landscapes and company.

Do you have any secret outdoor spots in Gloucester where you go to “get away”?
  I spend a lot of time on the rocks in Magnolia since they’re a couple blocks from my house. There are so many days when there isn’t anything I would rather do than sit on the rocks by the ocean and relax.

What is your favorite pizza joint in Gloucester?

I LOVE calzones from Mike’s Place. Although I probably go to Supreme’s and grab a slice most often – it’s so affordable and right down the street from Art Haven.


What is your favorite sub shop in Gloucester?

Virgilio’s, without a doubt. Foot long tuna sub with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and pickles could never fail to make my day better.

What place would you go for a romantic dinner in Gloucester?
I haven’t done the romantic dinner thing in Gloucester too much, but I would say Latitude 43 or Alchemy. I love the atmosphere in both places and the food is always different and delicious.

What is your favorite bar in Gloucester?

I’m a quiet bar kind of person, so I actually really enjoy JD & Myers in Magnolia. I also went to Stone’s Pub for the first time the other night though and I’m a huge fan.

What is your favorite breakfast joint in Gloucester?
  Sugar Mags! When I was going to Gordon College we would make regular trips and being close to it was one of the things I was most excited about when I first knew I’d be working on Main Street.

What is your favorite local event in Gloucester?  Well, gotta be buoy painting day at Art Haven! Oh wait, I guess I’m a little biased on that one. In all seriousness, I think block parties are one of the coolest things ever. Such a great idea and awesome community event. I’ve even invited my family from a couple hours away to come up for block party weekends to be a part of it.
In the summer do you prefer the beach or to be on a boat?  I prefer the beach for the most part. I love being on the sand.

Who is your favorite local artist? I would pick one of our students, but I can’t play favorites there and I guess some could argue that as a biased choice…haha. I think I’d have to go with Tom Torrey – If you haven’t seen his stuff, he’s a part of The Hive (thehivecapeann.com) and he makes the coolest creations out of recycled materials.

Which is your favorite local beach?  I can’t resist a trip to Good Harbor! I had some friends that lived in a house of Good Harbor my senior year at college, so it was the first beach in Gloucester I spent a lot of time at and I have some great memories there. I also still think its one of the greatest things that you can walk to the island from the beach!

Who has the best chowder in town? I don’t think I can answer this one – I’ve never been a huge chowder fan (sorry!!) so I haven’t tried very many…

Excluding GMG what is your second favorite local blog? Love The Hive Cape Ann’s blog – gets some different and fun information and local art out there. 

Do you prefer haddock chowder or clam chowder?  I would have to pick clam chowder, but see two questions above…

What is your favorite Gloucester neighborhood? I love living in Magnolia, but I really love downtown. I love the energy and community of downtown Gloucester.

What is your favorite local band? Haven’t gotten into the local music scene as much as I’ve wanted to yet, but I did hear Pete Lindbergh on the blog the other day and I really liked it!
