Exit 11 w/ Earl Foote (“Gloucester till the End” Fame!)
JJ Nicastro Foundation Benefit
Mike Lindberg/ Peter Malaquias/ Jim Frontiero/ Frank Gentile
Gotta run and get ready for tonight at Captain Carlo’s for the JJ Nicastro Benefit. Come see Exit 11 and Earl Foote.
This Black Crowned Night Heron was poking around outside the dock. It’s one of the more unusaul birds that has been showing up more and more in the past few years. I have no idea why we’ve suddenly gotten this influx of herons and egrets but it is interesting.
Steve Borichevsky and Jim Barber are two local guys who go crazy for birds and take incredible pictures of them. I wonder what it is about bird watching that gets those guys so riled up. I’ll have to ask them if it’s the sighting of a rare bird, the challenge of photographing it or something else that fascinates them so.
Who in their right mind adds celery, tarragon, or lettuce to a lobster roll?????
Read how these non-professionals handle their lobster rolls up in Maine-
Then see this post on how it’s done by the all-time greatest Lobster roll preparer- The Mrs-
thanks to SandyBayDay for pointing out the article about inferior lobster rolls in Maine
Our old pal Shawn Cromwell who lobstered for us until moving out to Arizona or Nevada (some place out west) is now a cowboy??????
Here’s Shawn from his crazy days fishing out of Gloucester-
and look at him now-
Come check out the award-winning short documentary made by Gloucester-based filmmaking group of Michael Pallazola, Emile Doucette, Tom Papows and Brian Wright this Friday, Saturday and Sunday night at the new home of the Cape Ann Community Cinema. The cinema is located at 21 Main Street in Gloucester, above the St. Peter’s Club and Mystery Train Records. The film will be shown from 6:00pm to 10:30pm every 30 minutes.
Admission is free, and movie snacks (and a comfortable rest room) are available. Please come help us christen our new home!
The rain let up around 5:30 and, although they took FOREVER, the seine boat eliminations were exciting. You can see the Times article here.
Hangin’ with Damon, Jim B, Frank, and other GMG folks was great!
Watch for more photos!
My buddy Brian (the rabbit) and I walked onto the set to try to get you folks some up close pics of the stars but we were rebuffed. Actually a more accurate description of what happened was we went into Dunkin Donuts next to Woodman’s and then took a sharp left onto the set and just kept walking until the security guy came and asked us to leave. Drat!
The things I do for you my readers!
Woodman’s building is completely covered in black tarps as they are shooting a night scene inside. What struck me funny is how they indiscriminately nailed strapping wood over the black tarp all over the old woodman’s building. There are going to either be a ton of nail holes left behind when that strapping is pulled off or they are doing to have to redo the siding.
Dave Jewell brought in this blue tinted lobster. It isn’t nearly as blue as some of the other ones we’ve got in the past but I thought I’d throw the pic up anyway to add to the collection. To see the mutated lobster and crab slide show click this text
Much thanks to Paul and Beannie Nicastro for the pictures and Erik Spearze for giving me the heads up that they were being put up-
