Beverly’s Block Party vs Gloucester’s Block Party – Contrast & Compare!

Perhaps it’s worth a trip to Beverly tomorrow to see how they do their Block Parties (info here). There are some differences between theirs and ours in Gloucester, notably that the entire area is fenced and you can walk down the street drinking a beer (or wine).  Music is only on 2 stages and Gloucester’s own Henri Smith headlines the Beverly Bank Stage tomorrow, featuring Sean Jones (new, young chair of Berklee’s Brass Department) and Salem’s Henley Douglas, Jr.

Something new in Beverly for tomorrow is an AFTER PARTY at 9:30pm hosted by The Cabot featuring Beverly born comedian Dave Rattigan, an intimate New Orleans concert by Henri Smith New Orleans Friends & Flavours with Grammy-winner Amadee Castenell added to the bill along with other performers from the Block Party and a Taste of Beverly’s Best Late Night Snacks competition with food from Beverly Favorites: The Wild Horse, Gloria’s, The Indo, Freeda’s and Calibasil.

So check it all out, then come back here and tell us what you think . . .

This survey closes next Wednesday, April 8th at 11pm — so please don’t wait.

Do it now!

Another Great Block Party!

StClairFoodwm BlockParty4804wmOur final Block Party of 2014 was a great success. As usual, the gallery was too busy for me to walk the street to take pictures. This time, I had the energy to enjoy the event, especially the people. A large cheese platter was generously provided by The Cave, our neighbor at 44 Main Street (http://www.thecavegloucester.com/). Key Block Party folks visited me, including Susan Parent (L) of Toodeloos (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Toodeloos/388111807754) and Block Party organizer Valerie Marcley (R). That’s me in the middle!

Block Party, September 20, the Best One!

The last Block Party of 2014 will be held on Saturday, September 20th. This event will be bigger and different than previous ones. Starting at 6 pm, the retailers and restaurants will be featuring their fare on Main Street and inside their establishments. A new feature will be "Little Italy," with music, cheese making, and specialty Italian food, courtesy of Gallo Productions of Gloucester. This is a first – so don't miss it. I'll be in my gallery until 9 pm or later. After all, I'm the appointed Party King. Hope to see you!

Big Block Party Bash Celebrates End of Summer

Even after dark, the street is packed. Here is my neighbor Jalapenos Mexican Restaurant. Always busy and always tasty. All the restaurants serve late.

SATURDAY from 6-11, this year’s final Block Party features a stellar mix of entertainment, including The GHS Docksiders Big Band, a quintet of Boston jazz maestros and a variety of other talent on five outdoor stages PLUS The Brass Fed Horns (featuring Carlos Menezes, Jr., the hardest working musician on Cape Ann) roaming Main Street with Gloucester’s version of Little Italy at the West End (from THE CAVE to Washington).

COME OUT AND PARTY LIKE IT’S STILL SUMMER — ’cause it is!

Fred’s Takeaway from Saturday’s Block Party

Shelley4390wmYes, there were massive crowds on the street, but the the 150+ people I appreciated most were the folks who came in to encourage me with my battle with cancer and the attack by a gangrenous appendix. Tugboat Captain Doug walked right up to me behind the desk to give me a big bear hug. I thought I was going to get mugged, as he was clean shaven and unrecognized at first. City Councilor Sepatia thrust my rollator/walker aside to give another hug and kind words. Reiki Master Karen Pischke made a promise to bring the resources of her Dreamtime Wellness treatment to me at home. Shelley (with PT/OT calzones) from Den-Mar Rehab, one of my prime physical therapists, came by with half a dozen of her best friends,. Then three nurses from Mass General charged in and offered their support too.

I’d like to thank Valerie Marcley, long time organizer in charge of the Block Parties, for her hard work on the event, her sensitivity, and for being a good friend. She was there cleaning up long after I had gone home. Lastly, I want to mention my “Gyotaku” fish print artist Patrick Horgan, who just happened in from Seabrook, N.H. I convinced him to set up his display outside the gallery. It’s always a pleasure to work with Pat, and he escorted and drove me safely thru the darkness to the refuge of my home in Rockport. Cape Ann is a very special community that cares. They’ll always have your back.

Cancer: Check. Appendix? Bye Bye!

I haven't posted lately because I wasn't feeling well, and my cancer treatment changed from hormone therapy to chemotherapy. I was progressively weakening, losing much of the strength I had recovered in physical therapy. I visited the ER at Addison Gilbert Hospital, was tested, and informed by Dr. Berger that it wasn't only the cancer – it was my diseased appendix, that was affecting me. Three hours later, Dr. Kacoyanis of Beverly Hospital surgically removed the offending organ. I'm regaining strength quickly here in Beverly, and feel much better. Although I won't be able to open my gallery for the wonderful Block Party July 19th, I hope you'll celebrate on our Main Street for me, and I'll see you there soon! Fred
