We haven’t seen the edited piece yet, but Charlie stressed the fact that it is a Gloucester product and that we have worked closely with our partners in Gloucester to bring a local product to our tables. Chef George reinforced that throughout the preparation of the dish. Should be great!

Brilliant Beacons

An illustrated talk by author Eric Jay Dolin

 The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to present an illustrated talk by author Eric Jay Dolin on his newest work, Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse on Saturday, April 30 at 3:00p.m.  Dolin describes his book as, “…a story about colonial commerce, nation building, war, technological innovation, engineering feats, storms, tragedy, personal sacrifice and inspiring determination, as well as poetry, art and hope…I think that’s enough for one book.”

Cost for the program is $15 for CAM members / $20 for non-members (includes Museum admission). Space is limited; reservations required.

For more information, email us at Tickets can be purchased by calling the Museum at 978-283-0455 x10 or online at Eventbrite.

Dolin, the best-selling author of Leviathan, will discuss his most recent book, Brilliant Beacons, which traces the evolution of America’s lighthouse system, highlighting the political, military and technological battles fought to illuminate the nation’s coastlines. The talk will include remarks on the Thacher Island Fresnel lens, which can be seen in the Museum’s maritime galleries and is the inspiration for the term “brilliant beacon,” as their use transformed American lighthouses. Following the program, Dolin will be available to sign copies of his book, for sale in the Museum Shop.

CAM program coordinator Kate LaChance recently sat down with Dolin to discuss his newest book in greater detail. That interview can heard on the Cape Ann Museum website here:

lisa marie

Dave says,

Well,I’ve signed up for elective surgery on my flabby elbow skin (hetero-weenisectomy) this Thursday and will be be busy recuperating with a Martini or three, so , in the meantime, why not stop holding your breath and inhale a little bit of Ms. Lisa Marie who will be charging in on her caparisoned horse, lance aboiling ,to skewer you with another night of electro-convulsive blues, and other music. And she’s bringing along the right people. She’s got Johnny Juxo to bang his shoe on the keyboard, “Silverfish” Steve on scratchy catarrh, and Dana “Bonefish” Bonardi on the bangulators. Sounds like a plan. Me, I’ll be showing up late in my black suit, in case you wanna see what I look like when I buy the farm! (minus the formaldehyde).

The Topsfield Fair Grounds, Route 1 Topsfiend, Ma.

Read all about it HERE



Pick #2:  8-Mile Hike “The Long Way Around” at the Crane Estate

Read All About it and REGISTER HERE

A little pricier than most of my picks, but what a great opportunity for a beautiful day spent outside before the weather gets too hot.

Saturday, April 30th 10:00-2:00  $28 for members and $35 for nonmembers

This hike explores the wild wonders of the Crane Estate!  We’ll launch our long walk at the Cedar Point Trail and follow it to the Ipswich River, then meander along the beach and through seldom-traveled paths to the trailhead at the Crane Wildlife Refuge. We’ll wander the dunes to Essex Bay, then make our way along the backside of Crane Beach to reach the Essex River. A bag lunch will be delivered to us at the approximate halfway point, and will give us the sustenance we’ll need to finish the hike! Come prepared for a leisurely long-way-around walk of about 8 miles.


Pick #3:  The Arnold Arboretum

Although I haven’t been in a couple of year, I truly LOVE this place.  Such a gorgeous slice of heaven, right within the city limits, that makes you feel as though you are miles and miles from it all. With more than 280 acres to explore,  you’ll certainly be able to make a day of it.
