For Immediate Release
August 25th, 2016 at 6:00 at the Waterfront Pavilion Tent at Mile Marker One Restaurant and Bar, Cape Ann Marina, Gloucester
– to benefit the Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives
“Sea to Supper” will be a community dinner profiling Gloucester’s local catch. With an all Gloucester landed seafood menu created by Relish Catering and Events, guests will taste creative, modern interpretations of dabs, redfish, butterfish, and one of Gloucester’s most historically important fish, whiting. We’ll talk about efforts to make these diverse species “local” again, perhaps giving fishermen more opportunities to sell their catches right in Gloucester, almost right off the boat. Fishermen and their families will be there to answer questions: – what’s it like to be ground fishing alone on George’s Banks, and the weather changes? Who builds fishing boats anymore? Do you ever see sharks? Does it get lonely? Do you love it still?
There will be demonstrations on net mending, how to eat a whole whiting, and more.
The cost of the dinner is $75 per person, which includes one drink from the bar and wine and beer at dinner. Buy tickets online or call 978-821-1590.
The opening for Art Haven’s “Lost at Sea” exhibit, artwork inspired by the Gloucester fishing industry, will be the following night. Pieces from the exhibit will be debuted at the dinner.
And don’t forget the dancing! Code Blue, a rock cover band, will start up at 8:30. Here’s a peek at the “working” menu:
