Congratulations Dean Salah On Your Tenth Year As Owner of George’s Coffee Shop! May There Be Many More To Come!!!!

Dean had no idea that his staff went in and decorated the joint in the middle of the night to surprise him as he thought that no one even knew it was his tenth year anniversary of when the keys were handed to him.

There’s a big time camaraderie in there with everyone who works, they obviously adore the leader of the pack, Dean and the way he runs the place with a warm smile and respect and a kind word for everyone.  One of Gloucester’s finest he is!

Dean is a guy that makes you proud of your community and brings people together to celebrate the positive.  A TRUE GLOUCESTERMAN!

Cheers Dean and to the rest of your wonderful crew at George’s!

Dean Salah Writes In- Georges By Night Seats Still Available



Hey all, just wanted to throw this out, the Georges By Night event coming up next Sat, the 31st of July
is still not sold out, for those of you familiar with these nights you know they usually sell out in a matter of
days, but for some reason this date is still available. The meal is as always a full course offering, this one featuring hawaiin chicken. The entertainer is a true professional having toured with some greats such as the James Cotton Band, the Zaitchik Brothers Band, Muddy Waters and Charlie Daniels. His name is Michael Zaitchik and although his name may not be
familiar to you, he is a real talented musician. We are fortunate to be able to host him and I hope we can get the place
sold out. If you know of anyone looking for a different night out, that might be interested, or if you want to reserve a table
get into Georges and reserve your place. 
                                      Thanks for your help,  Dean

Georges By Night- The Total Package

Last night was the total package- fantastic food,fantastic music but most importantly fantastic company.  Thanks Dean for inviting us to a great evening.  It was a pleasure meeting Steve Asaro and wife Chris- what great Gloucester people- unpretentious, fun people who have 5 kids at home and still get out and enjoy themselves.  We had a blast.

Look for the next George’s By Night special evening and reserve your space right away.  It was a packed house.  I suspect because the first one was so successful and featuring music by Chelsea Berry can’t hurt!.  I’m sure Dean will let me know when the next one is so y’all can get a reservation.
