Pop up at Pauline’s Gifts: Folly Cove rum made for a tasty eggnog, custom ornaments, and flags of course

Busy night at Pauline’s Gifts. Ringo Tarr picked up flags for the Boulevard donated by members of the Cape Ann Business Alliance. Councilor Val Gilman stopped in and Cory from The Bridge was streaming from the store, interviewing Pauline and Bob Ryan of Ryan & Wood. Pauline’s son Michael served up two special cocktails. We went for the rum. I ordered two custom painted ornaments–one for a Dartmouth fan and a pink Patriots one. Now that I’ve seen a custom house ornament, I’ll have to narrow down one of my many house motifs for an order!

Small business news: Pauline has had one of the top December months since she’s been in business.






During Sunday’s podcast we talked about Harold Burnham’s book The Shipwright and the Schooner and mentioned the book signing at Strawberry Banke on November 12th. On Thursday evening, November 17th, Harold will be giving a talk and book signing at Maritime Gloucester (with spirits tasting provided by Ryan & Wood).

From the publisher:

The Shipwright and the Schooner

Building a Windjammer in the New England Tradition


Beginning in 2010, Essex, Massachusetts shipbuilder Harold Burnham took on the challenge of constructing a wooden sailing vessel using traditional techniques. He cut the trees himself from his woodlot, and milled them himself at his boatyard. Using volunteer labor from hundreds of friends, acquaintances, and community members, and recycled and repurposed materials he constructed, in just under a year, the schooner Ardelle at a cost of less than $20,000.

The Shipwriight and the Schooner is an exploration into traditional New England shipbuilding, and it is a journey of discovery for both the author, who has spent his life building wooden boats, and the photographer, who had his first experiences in the boatyard. The book chronicles in words and stunning color photographs the construction, launch, and subsequent season of sailing aboard the Ardelle. The vessel is a testament to community involvement and a badge of honor in the age of mass production. It is a reminder of simpler times, when things were meticulously crafted by hand, and of a lifeway that has mostly vanished.

The Shipwright and the Schooner is published by Rowman and Littlefield and is available to purchase at Maritme Gloucester.

Terrible Time Aboard The Thomas Lannon For The Paul Giacalone / Ryan and Wood / GMG Cigar and Rum Sail

It was just terrible.  Hurricane force winds, torrential downpours, lost two or three people overboard, the boat was a filthy mess, the most rude obnoxious people you’d ever wanna meet.

A total disaster evidenced by the pictures.

Better pictures on the way from Kim Smith (I was too busy trying to keep people from abandoning ship to take photos)

Look at the sheer misery on these faces-

That James Eves, he doesn’t know how to have a good time does he?

In all seriousness I can’t extend enough thanks to Tom,Kay and Heath Ellis and their crew as well as Bobby and Doug Ryan from Ryan and Wood  our local distillery, and Paul Giacalone for providing excellent excellent smokes.

Check out Ryan and Wood for a tour of their facility, it is amazing http://www.ryanandwood.com/


and if you haven’t been on a sail aboard the Lannon (the most beautiful boat in Gloucester Harbor by a mile) you really need to, especially if you have guests in from out of town.  It is my number one must do thing I tell people when they ask me what they need to do while in town.   You get to see Gloucester Harbor in all it’s glory on the most beautiful boat in the harbor with the friendliest crew in the harbor.  Total no brainer city easy recommendation for the win.



Calling all Masters and Judges of Bloody Mary Mixology

bloody mary competition

If you missed the last one, you don’t want to miss this one.  If you were part of the last one, you’ll want to be part of this one too.  On Sunday, September 15th, Ryan & Wood Distilleries will be sponsoring the Biennial GMG Bloody Mary Competition during Mug Up at Khan Studio & the GMG Gallery, 77 Rocky Neck Ave., Gallery 3.  Mug Up starts at 9:30 and judging begins at 10:00.  Bring on a batch of your most creative Bloody Mary mix.  We will add the Beauport Vodka here so that all Bloody Marys contain the same high quality locally distilled vodka, and are of a consistent, acceptable strength (so no one stumbles out of here afterwards).

Speaking of judges, we are looking for a few good men and women with discriminating palates who know and love good Bloody Marys.  Ed Collard has already committed, but we need another 3 or 4 judges.  If you are interested in being a judge, please email me at khanstudio@comcast.net with your Bloody Mary judging credentials.  Fred, you’re already vetted, as is Maureen Malloy, if either of you are interested.  Paul Morrison, you’re a shoe-in.  We’re always looking for new blood for judgeships, so don’t be shy about applying – James Eves.

If you are interested in entering your amazing Bloody Mary mix in the competition, please  email me and let me know, so we’ll know how many entrants there will be.  Ryan & Wood will be providing great prizes on top of the world renown you will receive as the best Bloody Mary mixologists in the known GMG universe.  Kathy Chapman, Richard Rosenfeld, Talitha Jackson – you need to come back and defend your titles.

If you just want to come to Mug Up for the great comraderie and fun, feel free to bring along some Mug Up type fare to share.  There will be coffee and deviled eggs, per usual.

UPDATE: We now have Ed Collard, Fred Bodin, James Eves and Karen Ristuben confirmed as judges.  It would be great to have another female judge.

BREAKING NEWS 4:12pm: Kathy Downer of Long Beach is now our final judge for the competition.  She has impressive experience as a bartender trainer for 7 years and she ran a bartending school, and on rainy days when she used to be on the other Cape, she and her friends would barhop to find the best bloody mary.

Now we just need some blood mary makers to enter the competition.

Video: Sunset Sail Aboard the Gorgeous Schooner Thomas E. Lannon

Many thanks to Captains Tom and Heath Ellis, Kay Ellis, Bob and Kathryn Ryan, and Paul Giacalone for hosting the 4th Annual Good Morning Gloucester Sunset Cruise aboard the elegant Schooner Thomas E. Lannon. Old friends and new enjoyed the beautiful harbor views, the superb cocktails and aged rum provided by Bob and Kathryn Ryan, and Cuban cigars from Paul Giacalone. We almost didn’t have Joey aboard as a lobster boat came in late, but the Ellis’s Zodiac provided last minute transport to the schooner.

I had never filmed on a schooner, or any boat for that matter, and it was So Much Fun.  I cannot wait to try it again!! Admittedly, I’ve only been on a boat less than half a dozen times (excluding the ferry to and from Martha’s Vineyard) and think I have been missing out on way too much. Thanks again Joey, Tom, Kay, Heath, Bob, Kathryn, Paul, and Ship’s Crew for a great night of fun and beauty aboard the gorgeous Schooner Lannon!

Lannon Ryan and Wood Rum and Old Cuban Cigar Factory Cigar Cruise

My buddy James Eves from Cape Ann Giclee writes in-

Hey Joey,

I can’t thank you enough for spearheading the 2013 Rum and Cigar Cruise on the Lannon. I saw the post on GMG about 6 weeks ago and thought that I should buy a ticket. I yelled from my desk to Anna, “Hey, I think I’ll buy a ticket to the Rum and Cigar Cruise”. She agreed. (lucky for me, my wife, partner and muse encourages me to take time to enjoy the benefits of living in heaven). So, I bought a ticket.

I tried to get some work done today, but really spent most of my time in anticipation of the cruise. I stopped pretending to work at about 4:30 and headed down to the dock at five. I was first on line for the 6:00 cruise and watched the unloading of passengers from the previous sail. I met Mimi, An older woman (she told me her age but made me promise not to reveal her secret). She is from Haverhill, but the highlight of her year, every year, is spending a few weeks in Gloucester. We do live in the best place on earth.

Mimi left and I watched the Lannon crew prep the ship for the next cruise.

After a reasonably short wait they started loading the ship. I walked down the ramp and onto the deck. I was there greeted by a young woman from Old Cuban Cigar Company who handed me two fine cigars. I lit my first one immediately. Once we were all aboard the Captain spoke of safety and what to expect on the cruise around Gloucester harbor. He then introduced the Old Cuban Cigar guy who told us just how fine the cigars we were smoking were. He, in turn, introduced us to Bob Ryan of Ryan & Wood Distillery. Bob and his wife proceeded to dole out rum the likes of which few get to enjoy. 

With the strong smoke and smooth drink my work life faded to a blurry haze. Then I was able to truly appreciate where I was and see the beauty of Gloucester Harbor.

It was a beautiful night with a strong wind. The crowd on the boat were all GMG FOBs so I felt right at home. I was, however a bit disappointed that Joey C wasn’t there. Then I heard some cheers from the back of the boat and then saw Joey arriving in a small inflatable to starboard. “well”, I thought, “the party now begins”. and so it did.

I must say, how grateful I am to you, Joey, for your enthusiasm and the role model you are for those of us in Gloucester who truly strive to grow our community through our business and our lives. I was quite a treat to watch from the bow as you circled the boat and brought the party to life.

It was indeed a beautiful cruise. It felt timeless. 

Once docked there was talk of an after party at Stones. I’d never been. ( I know it odd but I am fairly new to Gloucester.) The party continued there and I could see that the cruise had washed away the hard days work for more that just me.

Wow, What a perfect night, only in Gloucester!!


“Spirit of Gloucester Cocktail Contests” Crowns Champion Mixologist- Felicia Grossi Of Alchemy Bistro

Champion mixologist, Felicia Grossi Of Alchemy Bistro, was announced today at Ryan & Wood Distillery as the winner of the first “Spirit of Gloucester Cocktail Contests” with her drink “Simpler Tides”. The contest is being held at each of the 3 Downtown Gloucester Block Parties of 2013 and Block Party Organizers designed it to increase the synergy and camaraderie between the Sponsoring Supporter Ryan and Wood Distillery, local restaurants and the block party participants.

For More information about Gloucester’s Ryan and Wood Distillery Check Out Their Very Informative Website Here http://www.ryanandwood.com/


Gloucester mixologists in the block party were challenged to create a winning cocktail using Ryan & Wood’s Folly Cove™ Rum and these restaurants rose to the challenge: Short & Main, Dogbar, Giuseppes, Ohana, Topside Grill, Alchemy and Lat43.

Ryan & Wood is a local distillery based in Blackburn Industrial Park whose owners Bob and Kathy Ryan are natives of Gloucester. The Ryans branded the name of each of the participating 7 restaurants on an oak cask which they placed side by side at their Block Party table on Main Street. Partygoers were encouraged to go and try a sample of the different drinks at each restaurant, which were also offered on the menus in a full-size for purchase. They then voted for their favorite concoction by placing a wooden nickel, distributed to the restaurants by the sponsor, in that restaurant’s cask.

Over 400 people voted in the spirited contest, which is an astonishing 20%, assuming even that 2000 people attended the first block party.

The contest was feverish and the vote was close. Grossi’s success was said to be due to her careful research of the rum, and a team effort in which Owner and Serenitee Executive Chef Jeff Calas suggested his favorite drink “Pain Killer” as the inspiration; Restaurant General Manager Danny came up with the drink name and Alchemy Executive Chef Scott Jensen added the final “Midas Touch” with his special, traditional Italian meringue which Grossi torched into a brulee before garnishing it with a fresh-cut flower.

Bob Ryan expressed his gratitude and amazement when he said “This was about Gloucester for Gloucester and everybody contributed. I had not realized how much the staff of each restaurant would have to do to get the thing going. I had friends tell me that they went into restaurants they had never been in, to try the cocktails, so I do think these great efforts were rewarded.”

Gloucester Downtown Block Party Committee Head Valerie Marcley commented “This contest fits into our block party criteria for any sponsor or event: It has to be free, fun and adds to the party. Stay tuned for the GDBP August 17th contest, featuring Ryan and Wood’s Beauport Gin™.”

Last Minute Block Party Updates – Win Cool Prizes

Here’s a new feature for tomorrow’s (SAT) Downtown Block Party: Win Cool Prizes!
The Block Party’s new Marketplace at the Cape Ann Savings Bank Plaza between Hancock and Porter Streets (see map) has a new game called Glosta-opoly played on a brand new Monopoly-style board created by members of Art Haven.  

You can play the game for free and win wicked-cool Prizes including CDs by top local artists including Chelsea BerryJulie DoughertyMichael Thomas DoyleAllen EstesTom HauckOrleans “Still the One Live”Renee & JoeT Max, plus a limited edition Celebrate Gloucester 2010 2 DVD set, limited edition Celebrate Gloucester 2007 Staff T-Shirt, hats & shirts & pens from Gloucester Engineering, jar openers and shot glasses from Ryan and Wood, creations and services from the Teen Artist Guild, gift certificates for From Dust to Dawn Cleaning services from Holly Ciancola and Whitmarsh Lock and Safe, energy bars and candies from Sunny Variety, Mardi Gras beads and glow sticks from Cape Ann Lanes, free car washes from Maplewood Car Wash, gift certificates from downtown merchants and more . . .

Revised Entertainment Schedule
There have been a couple of minor changes to the entertainment — click here for all entertainment by stage.  Click here for all musical entertainment by time.

Don’t sweat the parking.  I’m always surprised when I hear people complain about parking in Gloucester.  Honestly, I’ve never had trouble finding a parking space — not even during Fiesta.  Last night I went to the Harbor Loop Concert.  I got there after it started on a beautiful summer night in the height of the tourist season when every local hotel is full and what do you know?  I found a parking space on Rogers Street at Harbor Loop!  In fact I had my choice of at least half a dozen free (after 6) spots on Rogers within earshot of the music.  Plus there were plenty of spaces at I4-C2.  So don’t worry about the few Main Street parking spots that are not available during the Block Party.  Trust me.  You won’t have a problem finding a space within a couple minutes walk.

Wanna Talk About Class? Ryan and Wood Distillery Has It In Spades

I knew the Dodgeball rosters would get filled quickly and we would round out the 20 team brackets in a day or so.

Even though Ryan and Wood didn’t get a team submitted this year Bobby Ryan emailed to tell me that he still wanted to help sponsor the 2013 GMG/Farm Bar and Grill Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament at Camp Spindrift.

That’s what you call being a community organization.  that’s what you call class.

Ryan and Wood Beauport Vodka, Knockabout Gin, Folly Cove Rum.  If you’re not drinking the highest quality spirits made locally or anywhere you’re doing a major disservice to your liver.

Thank You Fred and Did You Know That Fred’s Photo is the Label for Ryan and Wood Knockabout Gin?

After getting home from work much later than anticipated last night I raced in, and took a bath and made dinner for my husband simultaneously, and then panicked over not having time enough to prepare my food contribution for GMG’s holiday bash hosted by Fred Bodin. Recalling Joey’s suggestion about giving a gift of Ryan and Wood spirits, I made a quick stop at the liquor store on my way over. I know very little about spirits and decided to do what I often do when purchasing wine, which is to find the prettiest label. The Knockabout Gin looked especially appealing, with a striking schooner in black and white, and crisp blue border. Fred accepted the bottle graciously and I poured some drinks. Later that evening Fred’s girlfriend, Janet, mentioned that she thought I had given him that particular selection because I knew that it was Fred’s photo on the label. No I didn’t know, but there it is–a gorgeous Fred Bodin photo of a Knockabout schooner!

The party was still going strong when I arrived and it was fantastic to see so many super nice, wonderful FOBS all in one place. Great to meet you Al Bezanson and Sarah Kelly  and to put a face to your exceptional comments and posts!

Many, many thanks to Fred and Janet for hosting a sensational party!!!

Honestly I don’t have much experience from which to draw a comparison but found the Ryan and Wood Knockabout Gin deliciously aromatic and flavorful. According to the Ryan and Wood website, the gin is distilled in small batches in a custom built copper pot still and the list of ingredients include juniper berries, coriander seed, angelica root, orris root, orange peel, and licorice root.

Knockabout Schooners, from the Ryan and Wood website: “Knockabout gin is named to honor the fishing schooners built at the turn of the century. Their design eliminated the bowsprit to allow for easier handling at the crowded wharves. It also helped prevent loss of life at sea due to fishermen being washed off the bowsprit while working the heavy sails in the challenging waters of the North Atlantic.”

Big Time Thanks To Bobby Ryan From Ryan and Wood For The Custom Coasters For All Our FOB’s and SOB’s To Take Home Tomorrow Night at The GMG Holiday Party at Bodin Historic Photo


If you’re not drinking Ryan and Wood Spirits you’re not drinking the smoothest most luxurious spirits known to man.  That’s a well known fact- you can look it up.

I’m not sure if the Knockabout Gin chilled down icy cold with tonic is my favorite or the Beauport Vodka Tonic icy cold with tonic is my favorite but I’ll tell you unequivocally they are my absolute favorite in each of their respective vodka and gin categories to drink.

I’ve been sitting (not literally) on these coasters since late last summer to unleash tehm upon our FOB’s at our Holiday Party!  Get there early and get yours to take on your winter trips and Represent!



It’s like this- When you put it all together- the locally produced and sold, highly regarded, easily attainable, easily packagable in one of those liquor gift bags, there is nothing in the entire city that is as easy to gift and as highly regarded as a bottle or three of Ryan and Wood Booze.  Ask Terry Weber.  She had her engagement party last Saturday.  I’m stuck at the dock all day long and couldn’t get to the party til after 8PM.  What do I do?  Slip into the liquor store, get a bottle of Ryan and Wood Folly Cove Rum, stuff it in a gift bag- #Boom!  Easy Peasy lemon Squeazy All Time Greatest Most Appreciated Simple To get Gift.
