Lobster Fest

Hello from Truro! It has been gray, rainy, and cold, but a gray and rainy beach day is still a beach day! I am heading back to Boston this morning and looking forward to a few fun events this week: tonight John Mariani (food and wine correspondent for Esquire Magazine) signing his book, How Italian Food Conquered the World at Bina Osteria, Wednesday a patio party at Sam’s at Louis, and Friday morning going home to see my family. . . on a plane!! Thank you fab Jet Blue sale for being cheaper than a car rental and saving me 10 hours of driving!

I love the Cape. I am pretty sure that Provincetown and Truro are two of the most magical places on the planet, and no matter where I live in the world, coming here will always be a travel priority. Even if I don’t go anywhere else, I want to be here.

Saturday nights of girls weekend are always dedicated to lobster.

Meet Lobby the lobster. We also had Larry and Lisa. I wanted to have a lobster race, but then I felt mean and backed out. My lobster would have won.

1.5 pounds of sweet, buttery bliss. New England love. The lobster dinner is simple, lobster, butter, corn, and plenty of wine, like this Secco that we picked up at The Urban Grape at their anniversary sale. It is inexpensive, tasty bubbly, perfect for summer. I highly recommend. And it comes in pink as well. Smile

The second part of the night is always karaoke. We always sing Sweet Caroline, but this year we mixed it up and ALSO sang Cherish. We are great singers.

The night always ends with dancing, then pizza at Spiritus. I probably shouldn’t share this crazy photo with the world, but what is life if you can’t laugh at yourself a little? I am certainly serious enough in day to day life. We had a fantastic evening, even without sun during the day. I can’t wait until next year!

    I completely agree with your statements about Ptown and Truro (add Wellfleet in there, too.) Even though I grew up in Yarmouth, those are my all time favorite cape towns! That photo of you is awesome and I love that green dress.

    I have never been to Ptown yet but I’m eager to go this summer and will have to add Truro to my list too.

    Ha ha. Your weekend and my weekend look very similar. I was in Newport celebrating a friend’s bachelorette party. We went to the Barking Crab and ate a lot of seafood and then went out dancing.
