News from the proposed Downtown Gloucester Cultural District coordinating group

Catherine Ryan writes-

Dear Joey,

The November 13, 2012 CITY COUNCIL vote was UNANIMOUS to endorse the establishment of the proposed Downtown Gloucester Cultural District.

The DGCD coordinating group thanks the Councilors, our City Clerk, and the more than 30 partners and stakeholders who sent in letters of support and spoke at the hearing. Have a peek at a few: Cape Ann Museum , the Gloucester Public Schools , and Gorton’s.

Next steps: Send in the application and support materials and wait for word, guidance, and a visit from the Massachusetts Cultural Council!

Back on June 1st The New England Aquarium declared the Calico Lobster as one in 30 Million which of course we made found of in this post-

Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?

we also had a poll in that post and took some good natured shots at The New England Aquarium’s obvious attempt to make the calico lobster they had seem like a much bigger deal than it was-

Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?

Posted on June 4, 2012 by Joey C

A couple of weeks ago the New England Aquarium took possession of a calico lobster and was touting it through their marketing efforts as a one in 30 million lobster.

Either the numbers they are using are off or we here at the dock are the luckiest lobster dealers on the planet and should be stocking up on megabucks tickets because we get 2-5 a year.

I’m pegging the over/under on number of speckled lobsters that are landed at our dock this year at 3.

Just another mutant to add to the gallery of blue, marbled, albino, speckled, yellow, double clawed, triple clawed and other odd lobsters landed here at our dock, Captain Joe and Sons.

Click below to see the pictures I’ve taken over the years of mutant lobsters landed at our dock.
