The Fish on Fridays series is a collaboration between Gloucester photographers Kathy Chapman and Marty Luster. Look for various aspects of Gloucester’s centuries-old fishing industry highlighted here on Fridays.
This week Kathy visited Steve Connolly Seafoods’ Boston processing plant and talked with seafood buyer Robert Chandler as Alberto Santos shows us how a swordfish is boned out. Chandler says this is the best time of the year for swordfish steaks because the fish are fattening up now, for their swim to the Caribbean, where they over winter. Higher fat content makes for a better taste. And, the summer shacks are closed for the season, pushing prices down.

GLOUCESTER, Mass. —A stuck flip-flop may be responsible for causing a vehicle to plunge into the water off the Stone Pier in Gloucester Friday.
Sky 5 showed the vehicle approximately 15 to 20 feet from the pier, in a shallow area of the river.
According to the Gloucester Fire dispatcher, the vehicle accelerated into the water after a flip-flop got stuck under the gas pedal.
The two men inside the vehicle escaped without injury.
The harbormaster was at the scene to help get the vehicle out of the water.
Ronald Jeremy Hyatt (born March 12, 1953) known by the stage name Ron Jeremy, is an American adult film actor. Nicknamed “The Hedgehog”, he was ranked by AVN at number one in their “The 50 Top Porn Stars of All Time” list. Jeremy has also appeared in non-pornographic films, such as The Chase, Orgazmo, They Bite, The Boondock Saints, Crank: High Voltage, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, Detroit Rock City and 54.
Jeremy is involved in the marketing of a line of rum “Ron de Jeremy” to which he lent his name, “ron” being Spanish for “rum”. Television ads for the rum, featuring Jeremy himself, proclaim that it’s rum, “Ron Style”‘. If you were thinking of going to Liquor Locker to pick up something today, you will find a madhouse of woman having parts of their bodies autographed by Jeremy.
I didn’t see this myself, fellow artist Sue Handman just came back from Liquor Locker and gave the report, which I just had to pass on.
We stopped in at the 7th Wave Restaurant to see our son Alex last weekend. For my husband, he cooked the sweetest, most freshest swordfish special, with grilled veggies, and cannellini beans with pesto. I had the steamers, grilled asparagus, and fried calamari appetizer. The calamari appetizer portion was so generous, I took half home and had it for lunch the following day. Everything was cooked to perfection, and the view, lovely.
The Kahn Family owners are wonderfully welcoming and the waitstaff at the 7th Wave are always friendly, professional, and lots of fun. Their topside deck is open for al fresco dining, just be sure to bring a sweater, and if outdoors is too chilly for you, the 7th Wave’s indoor dining room also has a beautiful view of the harbor and Bear Skin Neck. The 7th Wave is open for lunch and for dinner. The kitchen closes at 7:00 on Friday and Saturday, and at 6:00 on Sunday. This weekend and next are their last two weekends of the summer.
Yesterday Rich Marino, owner of Chianti’s Tuscan Restaurant and Jazz Lounge in Beverly, was granted a one-day license to serve beer and wine at our concert featuring the Allen Estes Band at the Larcom Theatre in Beverly.
In case you don’t know Chianti’s, it’s one of those restaurants worth going over the bridge for. The food is excellent with professional — but not stuffy — service. Best of all, Chianti’s is listed as one of the “Top 150 Jazz Rooms in the World” by Downbeat magazine. An accomplished musician himself, Rich knows how to treat his music-loving customers.
Chianti’s will be offering the perfect beers and wines to complement Saturday’s music — and you can even take the drinks back to your seat, so you don’t miss a beat of this extraordinary show.

Here’s the scenario:
You absolutely have to spend time in close quarters to one of two people.
One. a person that absolutely reeks of body odor and overall stench and every time yo take a breath you inhale the rottenness.
or the second a total negative Nancy curmudgeon who has nothing nice to say about anything and takes delight in other people’s misfortune.
