Again and Again

The last in the series of bags made of recycled sails at Freida Grotjahn’s Again and Again in East Gloucester Square.  Right next to Duckworth’s Bistrot.  Don’t forget your Sustainable Cape Ann “Where The Locals Go” coupon.  Again and Again, originally uploaded by captjoe06.

Where The Locals Go Coupon Spotlight- Duckworth’s Bistrot

Where The Locals Go

Today’s Where The Locals Go coupon spotlight is for the award winning Duckworth’s Bistrot. In the $10 Where The Locals Go coupon book the Duckworth coupon is for a complimentary dessert with any entree. Not too shabby.
Ken was a chef at Maison Robert in Downtown Boston in his former life and his lovely wife Nicole makes kick ass desserts for Duckworth’s. If you use that coupon, know that Nicole probably made the fantastic dessert you would be about to eat. I hear his lobster dishes are particularly tasty!

Duckworth’s Bistrot- Best Of The New Boston Globe Magazine

Well Ken and Nicole’s Joint isn’t exactly new any more but they still pump out the incredible food that garnered them this award.  They have a fairly unique to these parts concept of allowing you to order half portions of meals.  It’s a great way for folks to order a bunch of different things and sample them all.

Here is the flowerbox in front of Curves on Eastern Ave.
Since they are not in downtown they aren’t in this flowerbox competition but I told her I would stop by and take a pic for the blog anyway.

Later in the summer I’ll do an opt-in Flowerbox Open competition where anyone that wants to be entered can give me a call and I’ll enter them.

From the Chamber Re: Windowboxes

WINDOW BOX HISTORY

Main Street’s beautiful window box flower displays have delighted residents and visitors alike since 2001.More than seventy of the window boxes that grace Gloucester’s Main Street were installed in a collaborative downtown enhancement program between 2001 and 2005. The program was initiated by William Taylor and Peter Perthou (Grant Circle Flower Fund) and was enhanced and extended by the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce and the City of Gloucester’s Community Development Department. Through this cooperative effort, window boxes were installed at Main Street businesses free of charge. Main Street merchants plant and maintain their own window boxes, expressing their own unique style – and brightening all of Main Street in the process.

Canadian Seniors Division Rowers Wylie Blades & Donnie Mahanney

Wylie Blades and Donnie Mahanney pass out literature at The International Dory Races on our State Fish Pier promoting Shelburne Nova Scotia as a tourist destination. They were dressed in period garb and were pretty funny guys. They took a good ribbing when I told them that I didn’t know Nike was making sneakers a couple hundred years ago.

Junior Crews Pick For Boats and Lanes

Here the Junior Crews pick which Dory they will be racing on and which lane they have.  I’m not sure if it makes much difference in the inner harbor with tides, but I know the Seine boat crews take the tides into careful consideration when selecting their lane with the outgoing and incoming from the cut bridge.
