Gloucester Quilter Is One year Wiser Today! http://gloucesterquilter.wordpress.com/
After four rounds it looked like Captain Hooks Had It In The Bag But in the Final Taste Round (accounting for 40% of the scores) Destinos Pulled Out A Dramatic Come From Behind Win.
We had Bex, Chris DeWolfe, Kim Smith and Brianmoc go in for the sub pick-ups last night. Brought the subs in and weighed and recorded the weights and sequestered the judges in a separate room while we marked each sub Sub A, Sub B, Sub C and Sub D to insure no bias and a blind tasting.
Judges Ed Collard, Chris DeWolfe, Brian O’Connor and Craig Kimberley took their judging duty very seriously. The one part I would say would not be a fair comparison is Cape Ann brewing based on price since their price includes fries, slaw and a pickle. However even if you threw the value category out Cape Ann Brewing would have come in last.
Captain Hooks wins People Choice with far and away most number of nominations.
Overall Best Gloucester Steak Bomb Challenge winner Based on Value, Taste, Packaging, Lack of Sogginess and Equal Distribution of Meat is Destinos.
Once again it was noted by all four judges that each one of these subs was a winner. To be nominated out of all the incredible sub shops in Gloucester is in itself a testament to how great each one of these Steak Bombs are and Cape Ann Brewing, Captain Hooks, Leonardos and Destinos all deserve accolades
Thanks To Mamie’s Kitchen for providing a neutral stage for judging. Thanks to our sub picker uppers. thanks to Kim Smith for filming (look for her awesome video Thursday).
You’d be happy to patronize any of these fine eateries. Today at Mamie’s Kitchen Chris will be serving up his killer Cheese Steak Sub in honor of yesterday’s competition.

GMG FOB Bex writes-
Joey, how much would you want to rent our vacation property this summer?
If I wanted to vacation in Gloucester over the summer I would *kill* to stay at this place. Seriously. But I like to take my vacations elsewhere, as I am sure you know. I really can’t believe they still have several weeks available in June and one in late July – this far into May!?! Really? Their views are killer and Gloucester Quilter is a total FOB. Don’t believe me? Check out their GMG webcam. Yup, that streams live from their window overlooking the harbor. Did I mention they have a private pool and are located less than a mile from GHB? This vacation rental comes with beach towels, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, and coolers. Who else does dat? Dot and Bex are great people and hosts. Guaranteed. Just read all of their 17, 5-star reviews from past guests. Their VRBO 20% discount ends May 23. SAT-SAT only. Pets OK (dogs and cats only). Direct inquiries through VRBO portal.
The sun came out just on the horizon over the storm. It was quite a fire glow! Enjoy!
