From Linn Parisi-
Discover Gloucester’s free, monthly Mug Up Meeting is at the Cape Ann Brewery on Tuesday, November 17, 6PM for all interested tourism related business owners, managers, sales staff, volunteers, etc. It’s a great opportunity to network and share knowledge, and have a Pumpkin Stout before it’s gone. The featured speaker is Phyllis Cahaly from the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism (MOTT) who will talk about the Domestic market of visitors and how we can get more of them to come here, following up on last months’ informative International market chat. Thanks to Jeremy and Dylan for this opportunity!
Tickets just got freed up to today’s otherwise sold-out Bananas Fashion Show Fundraiser for City Hall and I’ve got ’em!
I went last night and it is one of the best shows I have EVER seen and I am going back for more today (show is at 4p-5p — tickets are $25 each).
It has everything: glamour, music, comedy, gorgeous women of all shapes, sizes and ages in clothes from just about every decade of the 20th Century — and all against the dramatic background of our beloved historic City Hall. I cannot rave about it enough!
If you are interested in ticket(s), let me know. I can hold them for you and you can pay at the door.
The Gloucester City Hall Restoration Committee is holding a fundraiser to benefit the continuing work on Gloucester’s most important historic building. A “Banana Glam O Rama Fashion Show” will be held Sunday November 15 in City Hall’s Kyrouz Auditorium. Refreshments provided. The show starts at 4PM and costs $25.
Watch for more information about another GMG event…yes, it involves food. No, it does not involve hot peppers. Keep an eye right here this week!
Round three brings us 235,000 scoville units of heat
In case you didn’t read the comments in the last Barnacle Bouquet post GMG’s Paul Morrison gave us a little biology lesson-
Fun things I learned back in Coastal Ecology at UMass Amherst in 1977. Barnacles have the longest penis as measured by ratio of the size of the animal. Since they can’t move this likely comes in handy. “Howdy neighbor!”
They are also hermaphrodites but I had to look that up. The member size I did remember.
