Massachusetts Whale Trail #whaletrailMA and more in Gloucester

The Massachusetts Whale Trail “is a special collection of museums and attractions, whale watching, and historic sites and tours with a connection to whales.” Capt Bill & Sons, 7 Seas Whale Watch, and Cape Ann Whale Watch are included.

WhaletrailMA

Naturally, Gloucester had created a version on the HarborWalk which you can find on line or on the trail at marker #36 right by Tonno Restaurant, Gloucester, MA.  Whale watching is beloved here in town. The Gloucester HarborWalk has whale watch information, points of interest and a tab to all the local whale watching  companies.”Most offer daily whale watching trips from April through October.”

SEVEN SEAS WHALE WATCH +1 (888) 283-1776
CAPE ANN WHALE WATCH +1 (800) 877-5110
CAPT BILL & SONS +1 (800) 339-4253
YANKEE FLEET +1 (978) 283-0313

When O’Maley 6th graders study Gloucester and visit the HarborWalk, the student thank you drawings featured whale tails and spouting whales. It’s common for local kids to be invited to birthday parties on whale watch trips.  Donna Ardizzoni photographed and wrote about her Right Whale sightings from shore spring 2018, and more whale sightings around town. Parsons Street wall Mural (by the Fish Net HarborWalk street mural) was painted by local kids under the direction of Cape Ann Art Haven and features a great whale.

MAYOR SEFATIA AND TONNO’S ANTHONY CATURANO SUGO VS. GRAVY GREAT COOK-OFF ROUND TWO!

Warren Waugh, Mayor Sefatia, Karen Hanson

Mayor Sefatia and her team, Chef Anthony Caturano and the Tonno staff, and Warren Waugh with Cidalia Schwartz and the Lyon-Waugh Auto Group team brought the community together for a fabulous lunch of the Mayor’s “sugo” versus the Chef’s “gravy.” The luncheon included steaming bowls of polenta and sausage with  gravy versus homemade pasta and meatballs dressed with  sugo. Both were wonderfully delicious! Tori Amos and Brian King provided lovely background music and Scottie Mac was the DJ.

Sadly, the day’s event took place without Anthony’s presence. His sister Christina Caturano Ryan passed away from breast cancer several days ago. She was only forty one and left two young children. Anthony was attending Christina’s funeral today. Despite her tragic death, Anthony insisted that the fundraiser take place. His team did a phenomenal job. The staff donated their time and all funds raised goes to the care of cancer patients. We wish to offer our most heartfelt condolences to Anthony.

Hernan, Aaron, and Neal
Tremendous shout out to the Tonno staff for donating their time today. They are: Chef Neal Maver, AAron Budak, Hernan Castro, Toni Armstrong, Frank DiMercurio, and Bryan Testaverde.

And the winner is … Lots more Instagrams here ~ Continue reading “MAYOR SEFATIA AND TONNO’S ANTHONY CATURANO SUGO VS. GRAVY GREAT COOK-OFF ROUND TWO!”

MILES FOR MEATBALLS WITH CHEF ANTHONY CATURANO, MAYOR SEFATIA, AND WARREN WAUGH AUTOS!

Generous donors rally for breast cancer awareness.

In honor of breast cancer awareness month, Miles for Meatballs today raised a whopping $4,700.00 for breast cancer!!! The event was hosted by Mayor Sefatia, Tonno’s Chef Anthony Caturano, and Warren Waugh of Lyon-Waugh Auto Group. The Miles for Meatballs event began with a scenic tour around Cape Ann in luxury cars from the very generous Warren Waugh. The drive was followed by a fabulous late afternoon dinner at Tonno. Chef Anthony prepared his famous homemade meatballs and sausage with zugu/gravy, served over the creamiest polenta you can imagine. The homestyle, yet elegant dinner was accompanied by an outstanding Caesar salad and delicious cannolis. Every Sunday Chef Anthony serves a traditional meatball and zugu/gravy Sunday family dinner and I know where we will be having dinner next Sunday!

MAYOR SEFATIA AND ANTHONY CATURANO, OWNER/CHEF TONNO RESTAURANT, RAISE $$10,000.00 FOR CANCER!!

Mayor Sefatia write’s, “BIG shout out to Anthony Caturano and Tonno staff for the December ‘Sauce Cookoff: Gravy vs. Sugo’ charity event. We proudly raised $10,000.00 for local cancer patients and supporting services. Today, we delivered a check for $7,500.00 to Addison Gilbert Hospital Oncology, which will directly support their patients. The other $2,500.00 was previously given to different families in time for the Holidays.❤️

CONGRATULATIONS TO MAYOR SEFATIA AND CHEF ANTHONY CATURANO FOR HUGE SUCCESS FIRST EVER SAUCE COOK OFF FOR A CAUSE!

dscf2258Bravo and huge shout out to Mayor Romeo Theken, Chef Anthony, the Tonno staff, and all the volunteers who contributed to today’s successful sauce cook off charity luncheon. Held at Tonno (Anthony donated his restaurant and the Tonno staff volunteered their time), the event raised money to benefit three families with a member undergoing cancer treatment at Addison Gilbert Hospital. The families will each receive $500.00. The additional monies raised are going to the oncology department at AGH. A wonderful time was had by all, especially the Chefs, Mayor Sefatia and Anthony Caturano.dscf2180

dscf2420The event was inspired by Chef Anthony (erroneously) referring to sugo as gravy. War was declared and a sugo cookoff to benefit charity was decided upon. See Mayor Sefatia explaining Gloucester-acceptable terms for sauce (practically anything but gravy) 🙂

Greening of Gloucester, Tonno, Beauport, Trustees of Reservations featured in North Shore magazine

North Shore Magazine October issue. The Greening of Gloucester illustration is by Julie McLaughlin.

20160917_070002

Greening of Gloucester: This seacoast town is recognized as one of the leading clean energy communities in the state. ” By Sarah Shemkus

“Enlightened Italian- Chef Anthony Caturano has a boat moored in Gloucester Harbor named Tonno-– Italian for tuna. So it’s not surprise that when the talented Boston chef opted to open a second seafood restaurant  focused on coastal Italian cuisine, Gloucester was on his mind.” Tonno Restaurant review by Jeanne O’Brien Coffey

“Gilded Age: The new Beauport Hotel recalls the glamour of old-school seaside resorts.” by Jeanne O’Brien Coffey

“Celebrating Preservation: One woman honors the Trustees of Reservations’ 125th anniversary through her personal story of the organization” by Victoria Abbott Riccardi. Her father was its executive director from 1966-84. Ravenswood Park was the 77th property, added in 1993. The Trustees second acquisition,  Mount Ann Park Gloucester, happened in 1897. Magnolia Shore was acquired in 1936 but deeded back to Gloucester in 1959. Two stories to look into there.

“Fishing is going to be our heritage and first priority,” Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken said. But she added, “We’re moving forward.”

Kathleen Conti describes Gloucester Biotechnology Academy and Beauport Hotel as meaningful catalysts. In addition to the Mayor’s quote, there are comments  and points of view shared by several: Sherri Zizik; Vito Giacalone; Gregory Verdine; Ken Riehl, Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce (nice quote); Lee Dellicker, Winhover Construction (Beauport); George Marsh (architect Gloucester Biotechnology). Oh, and the former Mayor of New Bedford, John Bullard. chimes in.

Other new businesses downtown beyond this article include goodlinens opening July 1, Jane Deering Gallery on Pleasant Street, the new bicycle rental shop, and Tonno restaurant. And there’s a new gallery coming to Rocky Neck. More on that later!
