Don’t Be A Dope! Gloucester Men Need To Recognize Men’s Night and All The Free Grub Going On Down On Main Street Thursday Night- Here’s How You Play It-

Listen I know y’all if you’re like me are notorious late shoppers but here’s the thing-  This Thursday night there are a buttload of Downtown Gloucester Merchants offering up cheese platters and Cavemen Chili (I’m talkin about you The Cave) and huge discounts on the stuff you’re gonna wanna buy for your family and friends anyway.

So don’t be a dope and wait til after Thursday to buy it, make a night of it with the boys.  Call your buddies, get that shopping done Thursday night so it’s not hanging over your head til the night of the 24th, take advantage o the savings, and eat some grub at the many many participating stores, and then hit the local watering holes afterward.



The Old Lady can’t get mad at you when you walk in the door with armfuls of bags with presents in them.  I t’s like a get out of jail free card, the proverbial hall pass to get out of the house.  Bang out the shopping in a half hour and then go to Stones, or Alchemy or Passports, or Lat 43, or Seaport Grille or Dogbar or The Rhumbline or Minglewood or Topside Grille or Cape Ann Brewing or The Franklin or any of our other fine drinking establishments.  Just remember to call a cab if you have to.

I’ll be at EJ and My Two Buddies Show at Alchemy from 5:30-7:30 where they will have a nice spread for us of wine and cheeses and you can pick up one of my Giclee’s made by Cape Ann Giclee or EJ’s awesome works of art or a This is Gloucester DVD.

Right after that I plan to hit up all of Main Street especially The Cave,  hello cold beer caveman chili rat cheese and pate, Life is Good Shrimp dip, Common Crow Our chef’s best dips, local and artisanal cheeses and organic crudite, Palazola’s  crackers and cheese with wine, Seaport Grille free Chowder, (are you kidding me)???????-

Hope to see you on Thursday, December 13th for Men’s Night. It’s lower key than Ladies’ Night, but it’s still lots of fun. We’re serving home made Viking Herring, cheese, wine, and cold beer. Not to send you all elsewhere, but my neighbor the Cave is serving Cave Man Chili. Hey, you can have surf and turf by visiting me here and Laura at the Cave!

Savour Wine and Cheese

Come and join us for Men’s Night in Gloucester, at Savour Wine and Cheese.  In addition to our 20 wines we always have on the wine machines to taste, we will be tasting out spectacular ports, including a 20 yr. tawny and a 2000 vintage (while supplies last).  Try these memorable ports with the best Stilton Cheese made. 

We will also be offering some excellent craft beers, including very hard to find small-batch brews, like Berkshire Lost Sailor and Jack’s Abbey Smoke and Dagger lager. Nibble on fine cheeses, chocolate, olives and nuts while you do your Christmas shopping at 10% off (all day for men)!

We look forward to seeing you and sharing our new wonderful space at 76 Prospect St., Gloucester.  (Just a stroll down Pleasant St., 2 blocks from Main).
