The Taste of Cape Ann Call to Action for Restaurants and Foodies

The most delicious fundraiser of the year is nearly here – it’s time to get your restaurant registered or your event ticket ordered. Last year’s event included nearly three dozen food and beverage purveyors and nearly 300 guests! We already have confirmation from over 20 restaurants, brewers and spirits companies. Add your name to the list!

The Cape Ann YMCA’s 9th Annual “Taste of Cape Ann” returns to Cruiseport Gloucester on Thursday, November 9, 2017 6-9 PM.

The event features the best of Cape Ann eateries offering food, wine and spirits for one $25 ticket price with 100% of proceeds of ticket sales going tosupport Cape Ann YMCA Teen Service Trips and Initiatives.

Taste of Cape Ann is:

A great place to showcase your business in front of people who’ll be dining local all winter

A great PR opportunity – your business in the spotlight helping your community and those beyond

A great place for locals to sample food and drink from their Cape Ann food choices

A great reason to get out and support kids doing good

We will heavily promote the event and announce event contributors as they come in on Facebook. We will also provide colorful event flyers to hang in your shop window announcing your participation in the 9thAnnual Taste of Cape Ann. Free press and food blogger tickets mean even more local food-focused coverage of the event. Fun event, local audience, free press and a good cause for some really great kids.

Tickets and info available at:

Presenting Sponsors: Beauport Financial Services, Robert Stewart P.C., & Tom Davis CPA


Restaurants wishing to participate should contact Jennifer Amero at There is no vendor fee. We ask only that you read and sign the logistics/registration form, plan to bring enough food for 250 guests to have a small sampling of your best buzz-worthy offering and that you come prepared to hand out menus and advertising information and anything you want to get in front of local diners. To that end, restaurateurs should plan on staying through the event or sending a sociable representative from their venue to help in a great PR opportunity for a great cause. (Detailed logistics will be sent upon signing on).

Cheryl Arena Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb line 8:309m 10.19.2017


First, a shout out for Skip Hart, everybody’s favorite music fan. Got so used to seeing him every Thursday. Always an incisive comment and a double-dare to “go look it up”. I’m sorely going to miss him trundling through the door every week and throwing my own weight back in my face! RIP, Skip, we’ll all miss you.

And if you’re not tired of me yet, come wail with Ms. Cheryl Arena this Thursday at the Rhumb Line, where men are men and…well, skip it. Ms. C is a huge draw around here and I’m looking forward to stub my toe on her gargantuan amplifier.

She sings, she plays a divine harmonica and she’s bringing my favorite buffalo Bill lookalike: Mr. Pete Henderson to play quick draw guitar. Also on the bill is Mr. Forrest “Frosty”  Padgett, who just had surgery to remove a hip bone connected to the thigh bone. Once I stop laughing and sneezing, it’s gonna be just like fun!
