LEMON CRUSH and a great dinner at Topside Grill last night for Gloucester’s downtown shopping Ladies Night. We had a ball! Thanks to Joe Ciolino, Weathervane–one of our first stops so we can meet Mark Parisi and grab the next Off the Mark calendar which he kindly signs– and all involved for such a festive Gloucester tradition. Our second annual stop is across the street– we make sure to buy a couple of new toys from Toodeloos for the stuff a bus toy drive parked right there.
upcoming…HARBOR VOICES TONIGHT AND TOMORROW. MIDDLE STREET WALK TOMORROW. AND A FEW MORE SPECIAL DOWNTOWN HOLIDAY SHOPPING NIGHTS (FRIENDS AND FAMILY, MENS NIGHT, …)

Toodeloos! and Island Art and Hobby at 142 Main Street is year round fun. They’ve consolidated two long standing creative and well curated independent local stores together into one space: both a fabulous local toy store and a professional art supply shop.
Toodeloos! is between the Birdseye and Winslow Homer HarborWalk story moment markers, and a short jaunt to the summer cinema at I4C2.

James Owen Calderwood and Cape Ann Art Haven murals are such a great pass through on Parsons between Main and Rogers (across the street from Toodeloos!)
And from the HarborWalk marker at St. Peter’s park, it’s easy to check out the new murals by Danny Diamond at Cape Ann Brewery 11 Rogers Street!
