From Jimmy T- Get your tickets before the raffle drawing at the Heritage Center!
Attention All Hands!
We will be drawing the winner of the new dory Gino built this coming
Friday night, Oct. 2nd, 6 p.m. at the Sarah Frazier Robbins Education
Center of the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center. There will be
complimentary wine, cheese and crackers and we’re asking anyone able to
bring a dish or desert.
Help spread the word. This is the last chance to get tickets for the
drawing, hang with your fellow dory enthusiasts, and get a genuine
autographed Jimmy T. photo! We’ll draw around 7:30 p.m..
Here’s a bit more of the whole photo from Monday’s Where Zat? Jay probably has it now. Anyone else? This is fun!
In case you’re not in the loop, it’s a big week for us at the Cinema:
* Tonight, we’re officially kicking off (though we’ve been open since July) with a Grand Opening. Bring kids at 5:00pm for free face painting and a “Wallace & Gromit” marathon (including the new short, “A Matter Of Loaf And Death”). Doors for the grown-ups open at 6:30pm, with a meet-and-greet-and-gawk (I’m wearing the kilt). I’ll present a season preview at 7:30pm, and anyone who wants to stay for a hi-def trip “Over The Rainbow” can stay when we sit for a flick around 8ish.
* Thursday, October 1st is the launch of “DoctoberFest,” our own 32-day celebration of documentary films. We have 30 features, about a dozen special guests, two musical events (including a silent movie show with live piano accompaniment) and we’re opening Michael Moore’s new movie Capitalism: A Love Story on October 16th. Doors open at 6:30pm, festival preview at 7:30pm, and a (ticketed) screening of The Way We Get By ’round 8:00pm.

I had an idea to add a new feature to GMG- a Google map with locations around Gloucester which offer free wireless internet.
So I did a little research and there is this website which maintains a database of free wi-fi locations around the country. www.wififreespot.com
It’s a nice listing but it only had The Lone Gull and Cape Ann Coffee listed. I emailed the owner oif the site and told them about two other locations that I knew of that offer free wifi- Pleasant St Tea and Coffee Company and Cape Ann Brewing. The form to submit more locations says that the database gets updated every few days or so. Hopefully the new locations show up soon.
In the meantime I’m going to start to build a public google map which will list Cape Ann free wireless internet spots. i’m asking for your help. If you know of any locations around Cape Ann that have free wifi, please leave a comment here and I’ll add them to the map. Thanks!
October 3 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Join this celebration of the First Period in American Architecture throughout Essex County. Free and open to the public.
And as an added bonus!
A series of one-day contemporary art installations will also be featured.

The house is located at 244 Washington Street at the corner of Poplar Street, Gloucester. Parking available behind the house.
Downtown most people do not get cell phone service and in this day and age, that is just totally ridiculous.
I am no expert but from what I understand cell phone tower technology is such that it can be hidden in towers. On top of that the cell phone companies pay a good amount of money to lease that space where they can put the repeaters.
Let’s look into getting a cell phone repeater inside City Hall Tower so that A) Downtown can finally have cell phone service and B) we can derive some income from it to help pay a few bills around town.
It seems like a no-brainer.
Does anyone know of any reason we wouldn’t be pursuing this?
