Friday night, it will offer a taste of Magnolia itself.

Please let me know if you have a trailer available, we need at least one! And, we will need 8 or more able bodied volunteers to help lift/nest the dories in the tent.
Please respond if you can help out!

5 minute doc on chef Paolo Laboa from Rockport
Just finished a lovely portrait of chef Paolo Laboa. Story and link below.
Twenty-nine year old Michael Magner, owner of a sub shop and pizzeria, decided to open an authentic Italian restaurant in Beverly, Massachusetts. He needed a chef. Paolo Laboa, a two star Michelin chef, had just moved to Massachusetts with his wife and children from San Francisco. This award-winning chef couldn’t find a job anywhere in the Boston area. Calling All Chefs is the story of the improbable meeting of these two men and the magic they created. www.walkercreekmedia.com
