The Pinky Schooner Ardelle (along with Harold Burnham, Laurie Fullerton and Daisy) will be joining us this Sunday at Mug Up for the First Annual Lobster Roll Competition. She will tie up at Madfish Wharf from 10:00-11:00. If you haven’t had the chance to see Ardelle up close and personal, this is your chance to see her and meet Harold Burnham of H.A. Burnham Boat Builders, the 28th Burnham to operate a shipyard in Essex since 1819.
Of course, it is also Mug Up and our First Annual Lobster Roll Competition too, so plan to come, bring on your award winning lobster roll entry (optional) and have fun at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery, 77 Rocky Neck on Madfish Wharf from 10:00 until we’re done. Everyone is welcome.
Lobster roll judging will begin promptly at 10:20, so if you are an entrant, please be here by 10:00 to give yourself time to grill your buns (if you do that) and do your final preparation for the judging. I have tons of butter, so don’t bring that unless you use a special kind (I have the Cabots salted variety). Note: There has been a change in judges. International Food Judge, Brenda Hill, has had a scheduling conflict, so will be replaced by Eastern Point Lightkeeper, Dani Lubber. The other two judges will be Sister Felicia and Wendie Demuth.
Mug Up at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery is open to anyone who wants to join us. Mug Up type food contributions (whatever you feel like bringing and sharing) are always welcome. We provide the coffee, deviled eggs and good time.
