Here’s the second installment of GMG Pet of The Week-
Good Morning Gloucester! I am all ready for rainy weather or whatever comes
my way. My name is Oscar and I am Dachshund. I love toys and you will
never see me without one in my mouth or near by.
I am a little guy who likes the outdoors. I like to hike in the woods, walk and don’t let these
short legs fool you – I can keep up with you. I like my naps, too. I love to curl up in the
afternoon on a nice soft blanket. I enjoy riding in the car and just being with people.
I get along with most dogs as long as these don’t take my toys. I have a little
confession – I like cats but I just love to chase them! I am being fostered because at
the shelter I was feeling too stressed out and always awake checking to see if anyone
was going to take my toys. One dog – he looked like half-a-pony – I thought for sure
if I fell asleep he was going to take my toys. Because of my "intense" style, I am
looking for an adult home. If you think you could be person(s), please give the shelter
a call so we might chat a little more! The Cape Ann Animal Aid is located at
260 Main Street in Gloucester and may be reached at (978) 283-6055
Amy Blake Had Me Swing By To Sample One of Her Killer Dogs On Rocky Neck. I’m telling you (and maybe I shouldn’t let out the secret) that her little deck next to the shop has the best little ocean breeze and view of Smith’s Cove. A perfect spot to bring the kids for a hot dog and ice cream while sitting and taking in the beautiful view.

It’s official! Today is the first day of summer for the Northern Hemisphere. Gloucester’s official summer begins mid-week with Fiesta. In a way, summer in Gloucester both speeds up and slows down. The energy and activities increase, but driving around town on sunny weekend days can be frustrating. We all tend to plan our trips around peak beach times.
Duckworth’s Beach Gourmet is expanding our hours. Look below for the new times, and remember that the store remains open on Thursday evenings until 8:00 p.m. for our community wine tastings.
Everybody in Gloucester seems to have a favorite sausage sub, and we’ve met most of the folks who believe, as we do, that Trupianos is the best. Stop by and check it out. Mike
Ciaramitaro makes the sausage right in our kitchen and it’s the real deal. We’ll make you a sandwich or you can buy the sausage fresh and create your own masterpiece at home.
Ken Duckworth’s prepared foods continue to astonish. It seems every day there’s a new seasonal offering. He’s featuring more summer foods – like chicken salads and salmon.
St. Peter’s Fiesta
The 2010 annual St Peter’s Fiesta is now upon us. Stop by and feed your appetite with a Trupianos sausage sub with peppers and onions, grilled outside the store on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.We think that our store may be a quiet and cool oasis during Fiesta, and like all good oases. We’ll have plenty of cold beverages ready to go too.
New Store Hours
Summer is here and beach season has arrived. Going boating or heading to the beach? Come by and pick up sandwiches, salads or beer and wine to make your day complete. Call in your order and we’ll have it ready for you to pick up.
Tuesday – Thursday
11:00 am – 6:00 pm
Friday and Saturday
9:00 am – 6:00 pm
9:00 am – 3;00 pm
Wine of the Month
Cristalino Brut Sparkling Wine
Cristalino Cava Brut has a bright green-gold color and shows fine bubbles. It has a pleasant nose of green apples, peaches, toast, flowers, cinnamon and herbs. Crisp and bright, dry with medium-full body, this sparkler offers rich flavors of apples, figs, lemon, roasted almonds and pie crust. It is fruit-forward and balanced, with a clean, lemony finish.
Enjoy Cristalino Cava Brut as an apéritif and with chicken salad, shellfish, paella, filet of sole and fruit desserts.
Cheese of the Month
Delice de Bourgogne – Triple Cream
Delice de Bourgogne from France is a tall triple cream cow’s milk cheese that is enriched with cream. The remarkably pungent (somewhat moldy) aroma of Delice de Bourgogne belies the velvet-smooth texture and subtle taste of this cheese. Similar to the classic Brie both in appearance and texture, this sumptuous cheese delivers an extra triple-cream punch to the palate. Its outside is yellowish-white in color, with a soft, chalk-like dusty rind. The smell can be overpowering at first, but adds a playful contrast to the sweet and creamy interior. For a most memorable Delice experience, procure the freshest French baguette, slice and toast. Spread some Delice and feast on this fantastically simple treat before another hectic day commences.
Drink Suggestions: Serve with Champagne, a slightly acidic Riesling, or fruity Sauternes.
Champagne and Chocolate!
This month we will be tasting some Champagne and Prosecco along with some fresh strawberries and chocolates.
Thursday, June 26th from 6:00 pm to 8 pm
Our wine tastings on Thursday evenings at 6:00 p.m. continue to increase in popularity. The store remains open during those hours as well.
Keep an eye out for our catering truck. We’re just putting the finishing touches on it, and any day now, you’ll start seeing it parked at key locations around Cape Ann. We’ll stock it with box lunches, prepared food and soft drinks. If you have suggestions about where we should be, let us know.
Before we go, we can’t resist a little bragging. Duckworth’s Bistrot, the restaurant that Ken and Nicole Duckworth have at 197 East Main Street, once again has received the Zagat Guide’s highest rating for food in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Yes, it beats out all those fancy places in Boston. It’s a treasure, and we’re lucky to have it here in our town. This time of year it’s best to plan ahead and make reservations.
We’re looking forward to serving you.

This mom swan was furious that her young baby swam in front of her. Very protective! Is there only one left this year? I’ve seen the red fox and the snapping turtles that are predators of the little swans.
Saw This On Craig’s list. I have no idea how legit it is but free is free I guess and I figured I’d pass it along-

Joe and Memory have done a fantastic job, and I looking forward to sitting at the piano, of course on the other side of the keys.
