Happy Anniversary Seaport Grille – Three Days of Celebration March 5-7
Yes! Can you believe we are four years old. Where did the time go.
When I think back to when the Restaurant first opened, I sit amazed. We have grown so large. But not large enough to forget our roots.
Our small kitchen went to a large kitchen, from three cooks to ten lines cooks, from one prep cook to five prep cooks, from one dishwasher to two.
However, we know everyones name and we care for each other deeply, this is our roots. Our servers, bartenders, line cooks, host and hostess, bus persons and managers have dedicated themselves to my business values of kindness to each other and ultimately our kindness overflows onto you our cherished guest.
The guest made us famous, you the guest are most cherished. We welcome you into our Restaurant and try to make it your main stay. Your home. We love you, so may I say to you our guest
Happy Anniversary to you. Congratulations on 4 years at Seaport Grille.

John and Abigail Adams visit Essex to share “Love Letters”
On Friday March 8, guests of the Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum will be transported back in time, and will see John and Abigail Adams come to life to share their most personal thoughts in a presentation of “Love Letters: the intimate correspondence of John and Abigail Adams” featuring Adams scholars and living history performers Patricia Bridgman and Thomas Macy.
The presentation will begin at 7:30pm at the First Congregational Church on 39 Main Street, Essex, MA. Tickets are available online at Essexshipbuildingmuseum.org or by calling 978-768-7541. $10 per person advance sale, $15 at the door and $5 students.
During “Love Letters,” the audience hears Adams correspondence beginning at John’s and Abigail’s early courtship, and continuing through the year 1777. A chocolate buffet featuring Winfrey’s fudge and chocolate will follow the performance.
The Adams letters provide an unparalleled insight one of the world’s great love affairs. The fact that this love affair takes place at a critical time in America’s history is even more remarkable! Through their letters, John and Abigail reveal their teasing humor, their homely pleasure in their children and their farm, their deepest hopes for their nation, and their undying love and respect for one another. On a few occasions, Abigail shows a tendency toward nagging, and John displays a temper!
With over thirty years of living history experience between them, Patricia Bridgman and Thomas Macy regularly appear as John and Abigail at the Adams National Historic Park in Quincy, and have also performed at the Old State House, Old Sturbridge Village, Minute Man National Park, the Abigail Adams Birthplace, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Emmanuel College, UMass Boston, Suffolk University, and numerous other venues.
