Head To The Fort Square Café ASAP! The Lucky Table Is Back!!!!

Ron Ross has refinished this classic tabletop with boats from Gloucester’s past fishing fleet and they are installing it in the window seat.  There has been 3 $15,000 winning scratch tickets scratched at this table as legend goes  (hence the title lucky table). 

While at the Fort Square Café you can get one of Heidi’s OUTSTANDING muffins, listen to the single most entertaining breakfast counter man in the business Rusty Shatford and try Heidi’s latest creations the stuffed breakfast pepper.

That table has a ton of history on it with the old photos and stories from Gloucester’s fishing fleet so get there early and try to snag “the lucky table!”
