The time trials for the 500 were pretty cool. The race itself was just a wall of people and there were so many cars you couldn't hitch hike so I walked clear across town to get home. I was 13 and it was 1968.

The Duck race was much more interesting. Lots of passing.

Fresh fish, shrimp, clams, and all sorts of premade stuff like crab cakes (very tasty) shrimp cakes. Paul Prudhomme's Cajun Spice for the native shrimp, powdered Wasabi for the tuna and salmon that is so fresh just eat it raw on the ride home. This is across the street from the Cape Ann Brewery. Good combo is Fisherman's IPA with the native shrimp. You can get them with the heads on.

Bodin Historic Photo is an eclectic mix of fine art, fine crafts, fine doo-dads. If you are ever trying to get that one gift for the person who has everything you will find something at Bodin's. Old historic maps, historic photos that have been redone from the original glass negatives, beautifly framed. Even if you are a skeptic you'll walk out of there with a print of the Gloucester Sea Serpent. In the heart of the West End of Gloucester. Tons of cool shops and restaurants.

The beers are top notch. The fish and chips, fisherman's platter, the haddock sandwich, they do one of the tastiest fried fish (usually haddock) around. You're in Gloucester and you're getting fresh fish.Rest of the menu is decent too I just gravitate to the fresh fish. They make their own fries and potato chips. Wicked. Gets loud when packed but service even when crowded is quick and friendly. Take out growlers. Bring the empties back! Great deal.

Washed dishes in the Kidd back in 1975. I remember twice when the bouncers kicked people out. One came back with his motorcycle to the end of the bar and back. the other must have been a tree surgeon as he brought back a chainsaw and cut the door down the middle. I'm sure the bar has changed since then. The food was OK. The after hours party was the best.
