Food, Glorious Food - cool events and resources I just gotta share


So now that the summer is wrapped up and I'm no longing spending every waking moment on the beach, I thought I ought to sit back down to the laptop and write a few things down here.
And it's an easy task this time of year because sooooooooo much good food stuff is happening I can't wait to talk about.

The Taste of Cape Ann
Cruiseport Gloucester, Gloucester, MA
October 9th 6-9PM

The Cape Ann YMCA’s 6th Annual “Taste of Cape Ann” returns to Cruiseport Gloucester on Thursday, October 9, 2013 from 6-9PM. The event features the best of Cape Ann eateries offering food, wine and spirits for one $25 ticket price with the proceeds of ticket sales going to support Cape Ann YMCA Teen Service Trips to New Orleans, Navajo Nation and Nicaragua.

The service trips empower local youth to spend a week working in communities hit by environmental and economic devastation. Teens participate in learning modules before and after traveling on school break to offer hands-on aid in areas of great need. The New Orleans Mission, now in its 4th year, originated as a Cape Ann trip but has generated enough interest to cause its expansion to include youth throughout the North Shore YMCA system two years ago and prompted the addition of the Nicaragua trip in 2013, and the Navajo Nation trip in 2014.

Last years event featured 25 restaurants and hosted over 250 guests, and ever increasing turnout is expected this year. Tickets are only $25 Get them here: Link for Tickets: https://northshoreymca.ejoinme.org/?tabid=483002
