How long have you lived in Gloucester? Since September 15 (about 5-1/2 months)
What is your favorite season In Gloucester? living here I’ve only fully experienced fall and winter, and have enjoyed both; but summer is definitely my favorite season.
Do you have any secret outdoor spots in Gloucester where you go to “get away”? Cambridge Beach at low tide when I can climb up onto the rocks overlooking Wingaersheek Beach, Ipswich Bay and Annisquam Light.
What is your favorite pizza joint in Gloucester? I haven’t had pizza in Gloucester yet, so can’t say
What is your favorite sub shop in Gloucester? I seldom eat subs
What place would you go for a romantic dinner in Gloucester? The Market Restaurant on Lobster Cove
What is your favorite bar in Gloucester? I don’t generally go to bars.
What is your favorite breakfast joint in Gloucester? Willow Rest
What is your favorite local event in Gloucester? So far, the Rocky Neck Plunge, but I haven’t been here long enough or experienced enough to have a favorite.
In the summer do you prefer the beach or to be on a boat? Beach
Who is your favorite local artist? I love Sharon Lowe’s photography, Paul Frontiero’s rocks, Manny Simoes videos, and Brian O’Connor’s photography to name a few. To me, artist denotes musician, painter, sculptor, photographer, videographer, actor, poet and more, so it is difficult, if not impossible, to come up with a single favorite. As an old Master Gloucester artist, I love Fitz Hugh Lane’s work.
Which is your favorite local beach? Lighthouse Beach
Who has the best chowder in town? Haven’t tried enough places to say, but for my taste, probably me.
Excluding GMG what is your second favorite local blog? Don’t get to spend much time exploring other blogs, but do enjoy Kim Smith’s
Do you prefer haddock chowder or clam chowder? I like clam chowder with haddock or cod. Or fish chowder with clams and shrimp. Or corn chowder with shrimp and lobster. I generally make my own, so can have it however I want it. Plain old haddock chowder or clam chowder don’t excite me that much.
What is your favorite Gloucester neighborhood? Annisquam so far, since it where I live and have gotten to know the best. I like Rocky Neck alot too, but also really like the Main Street of Gloucester, and the working fishing port section, although that’s not really a neighborhood.
What is your favorite local band? since I don’t go to bars, and the performances I have gone to weren’t local artists, I haven’t gotten to hear any local bands yet.
