Mug Up and GMG Lobster Roll Competition!!! at Khan Studio Good Morning Gloucester Gallery

Swing by the Gallery at 77 Rocky Neck Ave gallery G3 (On Madfish Wharf)

Meet lots of your favorite GMG personalities and enjoy free coffee, pastries and EJ’s killer deviled eggs.  Bring some pastries if you would like but it’s not mandatory.  Sometimes Paul Morrison even graces us with Monkey Bread!

On Sunday, September 18th during Mug Up, we will be holding the First Annual Lobster Roll Competition.  Judges for this competition will be Sista Felicia (we all know what an awesome cook and foodie Felicia is), Wendie Demuth (who grew up working for her father’s lobster business and ate huge amounts of lobster, prepared in every imaginable way), Brenda Hill (food judge for the International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association, author and freelance writer from FL, originally from Gloucester) and Kim Smith (butterfly garden and lobster roll expert, who’d better show or Ed Collard gets her spot).  The lobster roll competition will be fierce and require special handling, so we need to have an idea of the number of entrants in advance.  Bun grilling can be done here at the gallery just before the entry goes to the judges, so entrants only need to bring a batch of their filling (hopefully enough to share a little with everyone after judging is complete) and their buns of preference.  If you are planning to enter, please reply post on the blog, or if you want to be more secretive, you can email me at khanstudio@comcast.net.  You might also want to put in a reservation early with Joey at Capt. Joe & Sons for your lobsters.

12:00PM Sunday

The Lone Gull 10K


Runners (and those interested in running),
An email will be sent out to all registered runners sometime tomorrow in regards to the final race details. I will outline some important points below for anybody who doesn’t feel like waiting for the email. This year’s Lone Gull 10K will in fact be its final running. It has been a great five years and I really want to thank all of the runners, volunteers, sponsors, and most of all my family for helping and putting up with my September stress! So here are some details for the race:

1) Pre-race packet pickup is available at New England Running Company on Friday (10-7) and Saturday (9:30-6).
2) You can pickup your numbers and shirts on raceday starting at 7:30 AM at Good Harbor Beach.
3) You can sign up for the race on raceday.
4) There is plenty of free parking available at Good Harbor Beach.
5) We will not be holding on to shirts that have not been picked up so after the race it will be on a first come, first serve basis.
6) Good luck to all runners!!!!!

Over The River & Thru The Woods, GHS Football Goes to LSHS

Click Photo for view of the GHS - Lincoln/Sudbury Playoff Game

The GHS Football traveled 43 miles to defeat Lincoln/Sudbury 21 – 0.

Prior to the start of the game, I was standing on the LS side listening to the LS fans trash talk and razzing the GHS players as they were warming up, even at the kick off the LS fans were non stop. Then Gloucester has the ball on offense and moved down the field what looked like ease and scored, after that LS didn’t say much all game until the end when one of the LS fans came over to me and said, “WOW those kids are good”  Congratulations to the GHS players,  Good Luck in Foxboro!
