Please stop by and continue to show support for one of our newest and tastiest spots. Even after he and his girlfriend were robbed at masked-knifepoint, Emrah is still in great spirits! He exudes all the qualities and spirit of a true local trying to serve his community and offer fresh healthy food for the masses. Today is a 50% tip day in my book of life!
And just as James Dowd promised, it truly is THE BEST fresh made falafel on this side of the planet!

Last night I got the chance to sample the absolute best sauerkraut I’ve ever tasted, no doubt! After talking with Kristin and Dylan Lindquist, the owners and creators, you quickly realize how much passion and excitement has gone into creating this very unique product right here in Cape Ann. It’s small batches, hand made, locally sourced, and damn tasty. What’s not to love? For more on their story please go to their new website http://www.pigeoncoveferments.com and have a look, or like them on Facebook.
Meanwhile, plan on going down to see them for free beer and samples tonight Aug.6th from 5:30 until @ 10 Blackburn Center, Gloucester Ma 01930.
With 4 flavors for sale, and another on the way, you will not be disappointed! TRUST ME!
A fantastic logo for an amazing product.
Ingredients samples, and the hand powered shredder!
Four flavors ready to purchase! (from top L clockwise) Plain-Turmeric Ginger-Salsa-Garlic Dill
One of my favs, the Garlic Dill!
The classic look is perfect.
We went through a bottle of this last night! All gone at the cookout. We put it on brats, and fresh tuna!
You can see the flavor!

Ahhh Garlic Dill, dear god!

Jenn Cullen is a Super FOB of GMG.
We like to give her a hard time when she says she will be at the next GMG event. Sometimes she would show up, some times she would have to work or fill in for somebody at a couple of local businesses. Always an excuse :).
She’s a hard worker who can take a beating from the GMG Authors. Also she has commented on a lot of posts.
Commenting on our posts on GMG helps give us a clue on what the readers like and not like.
Don’t be afraid to comment. No one will think less of you if you leave a critical comment. Except me. 🙂
Thanks for being there Jenn for all your support through good times and Bad.
From Jenn Cullen;
“I’m now the proud owner of three original Paul Frontiero Sr. Oil Paintings! And his son Paul, also a great artist in his own right (I have a few of his pieces, too), came to my house to show me the collection for sale and also made me my own special Art, Rocks! mug which I will treasure always! So excited to get these framed and hung.”
In my opinion Jenn got the best that was left of the small paintings.
so representative of “Old Gloucester”
“The “Art, Rock’s!” The Fort” was found a day after I left it.
Toby Pett waited a day to give others a chance.
Email From Toby:
“Thank you. ..I waited a whole day…As no one else claimed it, I now have my second. ..perhaps I will loan them to a museum for an exhibition. ..” Toby Pett
I think I have to be dead Toby before a museum would ever display any of my work 🙂
Thanks for responding Toby!

The Wicked Tuna’s “Hard Merchandise”
I caught the Hard Merchandise from the TV Show Wicked Tuna unloading a few Bluefin Tuna at the State fish Pier this Summer. One of the Tv crew members said the shows they’re filming will air in February 2015. So you may get lucky and watch them film on the Gloucester waterfront. The Hard Merchandise has been fishing for years here in Gloucester way before the TV show. They dock at the wharf behind the Madfish Galleries on Rocky Neck. I’m sure all their Fans will enjoy these photo’s. Video’s coming soon.
While I was trying to shoot a video on the best shovel, and shove techniques to use, the FEDEX truck got stuck on my street here in the Bayview area of Gloucester. After some attempts to dig them out, a very kind local named Forest comes up the other direction behind me. We came up with a plan, then I grabbed my cam. BAAAM….#becausegloucester
Stay tuned for the shovel video!!

Florida visitors Sharon St Clair and husband Chuck King rolled into Gloucester about four weeks ago. By chance, they stopped into Charlie’s Place and bumped into the Merry Pranksters. This trip, made by son Zane Kesey, replicated the journey from CA to NY made by renowned author Ken Kesey (One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, starring Jack Nicholson) in 1964.
After the success of Ken Kesey’s novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken and this band of Merry Pranksters drove from The West Coast to the East in 1964. Fifty years later, on September 24, 2014, they came to Gloucester, and had breakfast at Charlie’s Place https://www.facebook.com/pages/Charlies-Place/111697215533360. My friends were there…
Sharon photographed the Furthur crew at breakfast. She and husband Chuck gave them their table for the bus crew. Ken Kesey’s son Zane sits center waving his hand. Sharon and Chuck leave tomorrow for home. I got to know what wonderful and generous people they are… and like me, they’re adventurous. Fair winds and smoothe seas, my friends forever.
