Katerina’s Place Opening Information

Not to be confused with Katrina’s on Rogers Street, this is on Railroad Ave near Donut Jims.



Toby Pett forwards this info-

Katerina’s Place…workers say target opening date 7.1.14….with 9.1.14 target date to include breakfast. ..former owner of Supreme. ..if you liked Supreme you will like Katerina’s…


Recently, Hannah and I decided to make a new fresh ceviche recipe. Next we pitched some fresh chips in oil we keeps it real. Now look closely at the bowl and at my chip. There’s a secret ingredient thats creatively thrown in the mix here. Can you see it? Do you know what it is? Is it local? Was it alive? Is it Vegan?

Now if all the guesses are just way off, I’ll drop a new hint…and so on.

This is the inaugural episode of my new series that showcases anything I’m really diggin’ at the moment. And right now, I’m feeling me some SURFRIDER PIZZA. You may know that they have great subs on fresh baked bread, but do you know how awesome the pie is there? This place churns out some amazing specialty pies, one of my favorites being the Pollo Pesto, trust. But in this episode, I go in deep for the classic: pepperoni and cheese. For me, it’s all about hand tossed, freshly made thin crust. I’m not about some sweet sauce either, that’s just wrong. Some call in New York style, I call it proper. Whether it’s a white garlic pizza, pesto, red sauce, you name it, SURFRIDER has something for ya!



Gloucester’s New Cruise Ship Gets a New Website

In case you haven’t noticed, Gloucester now has its very own resident cruise ship, The Beauport Princess.  And what a beauty it is!  If you haven’t yet been aboard, this would be a good week to check it out because they’re offering “special introductory pricing.”  And on Friday, June 13, we’re producing a concert cruise featuring The Toasters (on their 2014 world tour) with a special reunion of Mile 21.  Tickets include the concert, Gloucester Harbor cruise and a party buffet featuring Seaport Grille’s world famous lobster rolls!  Get tickets here.

This week we launched a new website for Beauport Princess (see here).  And we built it using a “responsive design” (just like we did for The Cave — see our post about that here), which means it optimizes the viewing experience for what ever device you’re using: computer, tablet or phone.  For example, here’s what it looks like on a computer:




Here’s what it looks like on a smart-phone.  Notice the menu is optional.  It will automatically drop down when you tap on the menu icon (at the right of the bar with the word HOME in it).

Many other things have changed as well.  And if you turn your phone sideways it will change again — automatically.

If you tap the phone number at the top-right, your phone will automatically initiate a call to book a cruise.

This new website also works beautifully on an iPad and any tablet.

And best of all, the new website uses the same exact HTML code and content (photos, writing, graphics, cruise list, etc.) to display on the phone, tablet and computer.  (You can read a more detailed explanation of why you should build your next website using this type of responsive design here.)

Check out the new Beauport Princess website on all of your devices and see how it looks.

But don’t let that be a substitute for getting aboard.  How many people can say they live in a town with a cruise ship they can go on for an evening any time they like!

Fine French dining for all wallets

By Coco McCabe and Doug Stewart



Duckworth’s Bistrot, an intimate French-influenced restaurant serving dinner five nights a week, has been a mecca for discerning diners since it opened in Gloucester 10 years ago.

For many, a special attraction is that almost every entrée on its ever-changing menu of the day, which might include eggplant roulade stuffed with scallops, shrimp, and monkfish ($22) or grilled whole quail with a goat-cheese mousse ($26), is offered as a half portion (in these cases, $12 and $14, respectively).

Finally….. Katrinas

I’ve been dying to get into Katrina’s ever since it opened.  Finally I had the chance and it was fantastic.

I have to admit I was skeptical before it opened after the space had failed with previous management and in a location where it has to compete with many well capitalized established restaurants surrounding it’s location.  But once stepping through the doors and feasting on the décor and food you will undoubtedly walk away pleased that you went.

They’re doing everything right.

Check it out, right across from Minglewood Tavern.
