North Shore United Way Match Madness At Lat 43 Wednesday April 13th

We just doubled our impact for 13,000 North Shore children.  We hope you will consider joining us.  The North Shore United Way will be doubling all donations received by April 30th thanks to generous community supporters that have created a significant matching pool to close out this year’s annual campaign. We are within $100,000 of our goal.
We are calling this final push “Match Madness” and the focus this year is on North Shore United Way grants directly to programs that benefit local kids. As volunteers, we hear stories about how NSUW impacts local young lives every day—from providing access to healthy food for children in a low-income child care center, to supporting pre-teens and adolescents in six local middle and high schools around issues of bullying, substance abuse prevention and other challenges to their success.
These programs have a proven track record, but they are deeply dependent on us for their continuing success.
Also, as part of “Match Madness”, Gloucester’s restaurant, Latitude 43, is generously donating 10% of all dining room sales on Wednesday, April 13th from 5p.m.-close to the NSUW. Please consider bringing your family to enjoy a meal and some entertainment.
We know your donations and volunteer efforts really count for our youth on Cape Ann.  Make your impact count twice by donating before April 30th.  Visit us online at http://www.nsuw.org or call our office at 978.922.3966.  Thank you on behalf of our children!

Hop Skip and Go Naked Recipe

Make sure you ask for a Hop Skip and Go Naked next time you go to Lat 43.  If you want to make them at home they are very simple and everyone that tried them couldn’t believe how much booze was in them because they really taste just like lemonade.

We ran out of Mason jars to serve them in as the people were lined up 4 deep to get them at the GFAA Celebrate Gloucester event Thursday night.

here’s the simple recipe-

empty 1 12 oz can of frozen lemonade concentrate into a pitcher

fill the empty can with beauport Vodka and add to pitcher

fill the empty can twice with light beer and add to pitcher

add ice

mix well

serve in mason jars with a lemon garnish

get hammered!

caution XXX they are really devastating because you can’t taste the booze so watch your alchohol consumption and don’t drive after a couple of these. XXX
