The year  this photo was taken was 2006. I love how people figured it out. Some guessed and others (the first was Jerry) went back into our political history and got it that way.

Here are some  of the responses:

Well, it has to be an “even” year “cause Tierney and Verga were running..can’t read the other buttons, and they don’t appear to be Clinton, so I will guess 2000.

July 2006.

One of the stickers is for Deval Patrick and he’s only been involved in one campaign. Also, I think Bob supported Astrid for state rep in 2008 so, it had to be before then.

I’m guessing 2006 since he’s also wearing a Deval Patrick pin.

GMG Q&A With Kenny MacCarthy

Local Website everyone should know about (excluding GMG) . It’s a great show.

How long have you lived in Gloucester?

8 years. I was living in Magnolia for the first 3 months then my condo burned down.

What is your favorite season In Gloucester?

Hmmm. REALLY hard to pick. Just one? Summer.

Do you have any secret outdoor spots in Gloucester where you go to “get away”?

Yup. The path from Castlewiew Dr. through the marsh then out onto Coffin Beach. Great beach to run and walk. And the small beach/path next to Done Fudgin’.

What is your favorite pizza joint in Gloucester?

Lately it’s Mike’s. Tends to change, though.
What is your favorite sub shop in Gloucester?
Don’t eat a lot of subs. But I love a “St. Joes on a roll” at Virgillios. The
chicken roll ups at Jim’s Donuts are great, too.
What place would you go for a romantic dinner in Gloucester?
The floor in front of our fireplace.

What is your favorite bar in Gloucester?

Last time I drank in Gloucester was at Little Earls. Remember that stainless steel dance floor.  Sheeesh. What a mess.

What is your favorite breakfast joint in Gloucester?

Sugar Mags.

What is your favorite local event in Gloucester?

The Wet Paint Auction at NS Arts and the Horribles Parade.

In the summer do you prefer the beach or to be on a boat?

Hmmm. Depends on who I’m with. Can’t run away on a boat. 🙂

Who is your favorite local artist?

This’ll get me in trouble. We own works by several but love ’em all. My favorites, alphabetically: Paul Ciaramitaro, Luisa Cleaves, Eddie Herman, Laurel Hughes, Ruth Mordecai, Melody Phaneuf, Patty Sullivan, Jeff Weaver

Which is your favorite local beach?

Coffin’s Beach

Who has the best chowder in town?

The Causeway.

Excluding GMG what is your second favorite local blog?

Do you prefer haddock chowder or clam chowder?
Nope. Love ’em both.

What were your thoughts on The Downtown Block Parties last year?

Lots of fun to walk around, watch the people, yak with neighbors, eat a cannoli.  Tough night to sit down and eat. Not sure how the restauranteurs can cure that. Prep work must be horrendous.

What is your favorite local band?

Any band with a bagpiper. Don’t think we have one, do we?

Thanks, Joey
