The Bandit Kings tonight at The Rhumb Line  – 9:30to12:30.  I have my autographed Precious Stones CD Do you? I am sure you can get your copy tonight. I love it and the Bandit Kings. The Bandit Kings have a lot of original songs that really hit the heart. Some of them are lively and make you want to get up on the dance floor. Great live entertainment in so many ways. They are one of my top favorite bands. Check em out.

Food & Writing & Walking

Gloucester’s own Denise Frame Harlan has been included in a book of collected essays called “The Spirit of Food”.  Denise is many things: mother, teacher, fabric artist and of course, writer – which makes her fit in perfectly on Cape Ann, with its community of creative people skilled in crafting both things and words.

Denise will be at Common Crow tomorrow, December 11th, from 11:30 to 1:30 pm to sign copies of “The Spirit of Food” or just chat with you about the life of a mother/teacher/fabric artist/writer.  This is a perfect complement to the Middle Street Walk going on just around the corner from Common Crow, so stop in and say hello, no purchase necessary (according to the writer herself).  You can take in a holiday walk on Middle Street, pick up your organic groceries and chat up a Gloucester writer all in one fell swoop.  Where else but on Cape Ann could you squeeze in so much good food and culture in the course of an ordinary Saturday?
