Last night The Gloucester Daily Times held it’s 100th taping of it’s Taste of The Times Food Show at Cruiseport Gloucester. My buddy and new GMG contributor Joe Langhan asked me to go and I didn’t know if I would be able to make it but my sister Felicia was going to be there and things just happened to fall into place to allow me to make it. I expected there to be about 30-40 people there but when I pulled up there was a capacity crowd of about 250.
It was a great night for several reasons- I got to meet a lot of the people from the Times that I email with often but never had met face to face along with many friends and fans of the blog that I’d never met in person. There was a ton of food there. I mean a TON but even though I hadn’t eaten beforehand I only sampled a few excellent pieces of sushi from Lat 43 and a small cup of the new Folly Cove rum from Ryan and Wood Distillery. I was starving but meeting new people will always trump hunger. Making friends to me is what life is all about.
