Seaport Grille introduces new late night menu

A Gloucester harborside restaurant is kicking off the start of summer this Thursday with the introduction of new late night menu and an a cappella performance.

The North Shore ACappella will perform from 9 p.m. to midnight as the new menu debuts at Seaport Grille. Some items on the menu are Sully’s sliders, mini lobster rolls, chicken sliders, pizza and calamari.

Seaport Grille is located at 6 Rowe Square in Gloucester.

Two local marinas join boater referral program

Eighteen marinas, including two locally, have enrolled in the Massachusetts Marine Trades Association’s 2013 Stay Local Boat MA Transient Boater Referral Program. Now in its fifth year, this reciprocal program encourages seasonal guests to visit participating destination marinas in exchange for reduced transient dockage rates. For as little as $50 to $200 participating marinas are given a discount card to hand to every customer as well as logo placement on two websites: www.staylocalboatma.com and www.boatma.com.

Taking part are Manchester Marine, off Ashland Avenue on Manchester Harbor, and Cape Ann Marina Resort, off Essex Avenue on the Annisquam River, in Gloucester.

Designed to promote the concept of “vacationing at home”, the Stay Local program keeps boating-related tax dollars local while rewarding customer loyalty and promoting each participating facility.

“The 2013 Stay Local program is comprised of exceptional cruising destinations covering the North Shore, South Shore, South Coast, Cape Cod and Boston. From bucolic to urban, this diverse group of facilities is sure to please anyone’s tastes,” stated Tom Cox, president of Constitution Marina in Boston.

For MMTA member and nonmember costs and other details visit www.boatma.com or www.staylocalboatma.com. Rules and regulations vary by location and blackout dates may apply. Discounts cannot be combined with others and the program is limited to marina customers.
