Its gotta be a dozen or more years running the men from Phi Kappa Sigma come down to Captain Joe’s for Rush week lobsters.

Tradition. Gotta love it!
If you’re a prospective pledge and you don’t go with PHI KAPPA SIGMA you really need to reevaluate your whole college existence.
Just drop out and become a garbage man already because you’re not college material.
Here they are back in 2008-

Rush Phi Kappa Sigma At MIT!

The boys from Phi Kappa Sigma at MIT come every year for rush week to pick up a ton of lobsters to serve prospective rushees.

I thought MIT was primarily an engineering school but apparently they have their marketing down pretty good too!

Isn’t it Ironic?

An ironic place for some seagulls to snack on lobster legs, isn’t it?

Brazen little buggers sat right on top of our live lobsters to dine on some of their cousins.  Well, I can’t really prove that they’re actual cousins…but, you know what I mean.

I can almost hear the lobsters in the crate….”Enough already.  I can’t take it. STOP!  Why are you doing this?  What more do you want from me?”

Cat Ryan submits-

Hi Joey,

Grab some Reeses Pieces, it’s a gorgeous day and will be a memorable night to see ET on the HarborWalk Summer Cinema jumbo screen. Get there early, bring a picnic dinner or take out from the yummy vendors. You could have boiled lobster in the rough at Gloucester House or Topside and still see the screen! The pre-movie family tailgate is true community. Community Development has worked with Rob Newton from Cape Ann Community Cinema and Aurelia Nelson and the North Shore 104.9 team to make it festive. Thanks to Pop Gallery for helping to bring ET tonight and Gloucester Stage for The Lego Movie.

Don’t forget: if you haven’t yet, better hustle and SEARCH AND TRACE

There are many fun and free activities on the Gloucester HarborWalk. One of the great games dispersed throughout the entire HarborWalk involves a search and trace game at each story moment post. Children and adults will want to find all (or most) of the story moment posts and trace the unique symbol found on each one. These icons are on the binding of each story moment post. Take a pencil or crayon and make a rubbing of the symbol directly into the squares on these special print outs or onto your own tracing paper. You may need help holding the paper while tracing so bring a friend!

Here are files for printing these sheets. You can also find them on www.ghwalk.org or print outs at the summer cinema series movie nights or Stage Fort Visitor Center.

PRIZES

There is a special prize whenever a child brings or sends along a completed “Hunt on the HarborWalk” ANY TIME to Mayor Kirk at City Hall! City hall is located at 9 Dale Avenue.

For the HARBORWALK SUMMER CINEMA SERIES: bring your completed sheet to the August 20th feature, “The Lego Movie”, for a special awards ceremony. Prizes will be awarded for collecting at least 10 icons and a special prize for collecting 20 icons. A special HarborWalk Lego Movie Night grand prize will be awarded to anyone who collects every icon!

The Adventures of Lisa Olson and The O’Maley Innovation School 6th Graders at The Gulf of Maine Research Institute

This was taken at Gulf of Maine Research Institute. O’Maley  Innovation Middle School 6th graders were invited by the Institute, to explore their facility. It was a very impressive day for the sixth graders! This blue lobster was in their tank. Lisa Olson

This two toned lobster recently made the news

On one station, students measured lobsters, took pictures of them, and answered questions on lobster populations.

These were just some of the fun photo’s from out trip. I thought you would like the cool lobsters we got to see! The whole 6th grade got to go on this field trip. You could get more info from staff if you were interested. Love the website! Lisa Olson

Fish on Fridays

The Fish on Fridays series is a collaboration between Gloucester photographers Kathy Chapman and Marty Luster. Look for various aspects of Gloucester’s centuries-old fishing industry highlighted here on Fridays.

Things were busy at Harbor Cove this week as local lobstermen cleaned and repaired gear, loaded traps and enjoyed the onset of warmer weather.

Mark Ring, skipper of the Stanley Thomas, found a few minutes to chat with us about the industry.

Third Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons in 2012 Makes Prediction A Push

Also makes New England Aquarium’s assertion that their calico lobster was 1 in 30 million sound a bit ridiculous.

This Calico Lobster Landed today Novmber 21 By The Rockport Lobster Boat The Freemantle Doctor and Captain Mike Tupper.  The Same Lobster Boat That Will Be Bringing Santa In To Bearskin Neck For Rockports Christmas Celebration!

Here is the third Calico-

It all started here with the poll we posted on June 4th, 2012-

I’m pegging the over/under on number of speckled lobsters that are landed at our dock this year at 3.

Back on June 1st The New England Aquarium declared the Calico Lobster as one in 30 Million which of course we made found of in this post-

Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?

we also had a poll in that post and took some good natured shots at The New England Aquarium’s obvious attempt to make the calico lobster they had seem like a much bigger deal than it was-

Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?

Posted on June 4, 2012 by Joey C

A couple of weeks ago the New England Aquarium took possession of a calico lobster and was touting it through their marketing efforts as a one in 30 million lobster.

Either the numbers they are using are off or we here at the dock are the luckiest lobster dealers on the planet and should be stocking up on megabucks tickets because we get 2-5 a year.

Just another mutant to add to the gallery of blue, marbled, albino, speckled, yellow, double clawed, triple clawed and other odd lobsters landed here at our dock, Captain Joe and Sons.

Two Franks

The guys are always working super hard down at Captain Joe and Sons so its’ great to see a lighthearted moment.

Frankie Ciaramitaro and Frank Ciolino share a laugh.

Have you treated yourself and your family to a lobster feast recently? Why not–it’s so inexpensive? The price and quality of lobsters from Captian Joe’s is UNBEATABLE–only $5. per pound!!! My daughter Liv and I were eating them “by the twos” when she visited recently!

What are you waiting for-the price to return to normal?
