I’ll be “celebrity bartending” and making a movie filming folks around town- “Why I Love Gloucester”
Be sure to put this on your social calendar.
There were a couple different things I didn’t realize about the Sushi at Lat 43. One that you could get it for lunch OR dinner, and Two that you could get it at the bar in the Tavern section. Every once in a while I crave sushi for lunch, now I know just where to get it. Brian Eastman the manager tells me you could even call in for it and have it ready when you get there. Sweet!

Marty Morgan will hold her annual spring open house and sale from April 4 to April 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Her work has an Asian influence this year as she develops new shino glazes, which range from smoky grays to apricot and rust tones. There is little control over the results of firing this particular glaze. Inspired by reading Greg Mortenson’s “Three Cups of Tea,” she will donate half of the price of any set of three small cups to the Central Asia Institute, which is building schools for girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan. She also creates dinnerware and serving pieces in stoneware and porcelain as well as trays, vases, lamps, mirrors, landscape tiles and “quarry vessels.” The studio is located at 428 Washington St. on the Mill River in Gloucester. For information, call 978-281-3347.

Much thanks to Frank Ciolino who brought down a bunch of old photos of Gloucester from roughly 1980.
Maybe someone could identify the building that is to the left of Captain’s Courageous in the photo. I’m guessing it was the old Gloucester Grocery but I’m not sure. There is an alleyway that provides public access there now. In the post above this one, the Lat 43 sign is located on the left corner of the Captain Courageous building in this photo.
The Fisherman’s Wharf Building has been replaced after a fire a few years back with a corrugated steel building.

Looking for an outdoor spot to imbibe while taking in the sights of the working waterfront?
Lat 43 Deck is now open for bidness.
The fence has been taken down between Latitude 43 and Fishermen’s Wharf.
I don’t know if Fishermen’s Wharf has been purchased by McDonough and Co, but it seems that way. There are still signs up in the Fishermen’s Wharf parking lot that say “authorized parking only” but it looks like the lot has been cleared and cleaned up for restaurant parking.
We went last night to use one of the Where The Locals Go Lat 43 buy two sushi rolls and get a free California Roll coupon and we parked in the Fishermen’s Wharf lot. The public walkway between Fishermen’s Wharf and Lat 43 is complete with some interesting pavers and the deck is certainly inviting. I took some pictures this morning at 4:45AM from the observation deck in front of Lat 43. Its a pretty good view if you are into the industrial harbor thing. Got some shots of the dorys that Damon uses and are tied up on the Saint Peter’s Marina floats.
