Rubber Duck Gets a Parking Ticket!!

Just to show the honorable and effective meter maids of Gloucester do not play favorites they practically put the ticket under RD’s bill. But since Rubber Duck did indeed stretch the idea of a parking spot a bit parking at the front door of the Cape Ann Brew she went and paid the $15 fine promptly.

A bill stuck under the bill, god I suck at puns.

RD Fun fact: Don’t let these tickets sit in your pocket since the fine just gets bigger. Go to: www.gloucester-ma.gov , type in your ticket number and your plate number then shwing, you can use your credit card. They do tack on $3.50 if paid electronically but it is well worth it to get it off your dash or desk top. Pay a parking ticket, fill a pothole.

And it was well worth it. Rubber Duck was giving Shelley the visiting Biochemist from New Mexico the full Cape Ann tour which included lobster pick up and meeting Joey at the dock as well as the fish and chips (awesome huge chunks of haddock) at Cape Ann Brew.

Gloucester Seafood Display Auction- Grey Sole

Here’s some grey sole at the Gloucester Seafood Display Auction.

Within the first couple of years with my wife we were sitting at her parents house and somehow the topic of fish came up.  My mother in law told me she didn’t like flounder, but she loved sole.  I told her that sole is a flounder.  There’s a lot of people who don’t really know their fish.  I must admit as much fish as I’ve eaten in my lifetime if someone fried a fresh haddock or a cod fillet I’d have a hard time distinguishing the difference (and I’ve eaten tons).
My personal favorite types of fish in order of preference- fried whiting, baked haddock with the breadcrumbs, raw tuna, fried grey sole or yellowtail flounder, sockeye salmon.
Favorite shellfish- The Mrs’ Lobsterolls, steamed lobster with bernaise dipping sauce, baked stuffed littlenecks with my mothers’ stuffing recipe, Mexican Campeche brand shrimp with cocktail sauce, fried clams, mussels fra diavolo (extra spicy).
Look for part two of the video from the Gloucester Seafood Display Auction at 8AM

Charlie’s Place Fish Cakes And Eggs

Heaven, I’m In Heaven!  Not all fish cakes are made alike or done right.  The fish cakes at Charlie’s Place however are freakin fantastic!   I love it when they have some flavor with the garlic.

MMMMMMMM  *And they use Haddock, not pollock which some places try to push off in their fish cakes because it’s usually cheaper.   Delish and priced right.  I left a bit on my plate as I was stuffed.  Go get you some!

* I know it’s not proper grammar to start a sentence with And, but that’s the way I woulda said it so that’s what I typed.  Here’s another thing- I make spelling mistakes too.  All the time.
