Anti Valentines Day @ Dog Bar

Posted on February 13, 2012 by

Anti Valentines day @ Dog Bar


Celebrate your singleness at Dog Bar and flirt with whoever you want, because you can. We’re enforcing a strict, no love song rule for our  open mic.  At this event, you will find no hearts strewn about, no aphrodisiacs on the menu and no paper hearts or flying babies with weapons. What you will find is a collection of the best looking singles in Gloucester – don’t believe me? Have another beer. We’re keeping the kitchen open late with a special menu of single people food and will be premiering our new sophisticated single person martini, the Lux Sidecar (made with white balsamic vinegar from Cape Ann Olive Oils). Free admission to anyone not wearing red or any red variant.

The Rhumb Line~

I am wicked excited that the Monday night jam is back. If you happen to stop by you may get to hear the Bandit Kings, Inge Berge and who knows who may appear. During these jams you get some magical moments from musicians that are there to let loose with no planned agenda.

Thank you to Dan King for hosting this jam and to Fred Shrigley for making it possible.

Monday – 9:00 to 12:30 Open jam with The Bandit Kings

Tuesday – 9:00 to 12:30 ~ Henely Douglas and Soul Force ~V~

Wednesdays at the Rhumb Line -8:30-11:00

Prime Rib Specials!

Wednesdays Only!

Dinner with Fly Amero: 8 – 11pm Special Valentines Day ~ Fly Solo

I don’t know why, I just thought it might be a nice idea to
celebrate Valentine’s Day the NEXT day with a setlist full of
love songs and romance.  Call it “music from the heart”, or
whatever you like… it’s my favorite stuff to do.  Not likely I’ll
be taking any breaks – straight through for 3 hours-plus.
Come by early.  Grab a table.  Have a wonderful candle-light
dinner with your your loved one.  And have yourself a warm
and Happy Valentine’s Day! ~ Fly

*Each week features a special, invited musical guest
Dave Trooper’s Kitchen…
Prime Rib Dinner – $9.95 (while they last)
Prepared fresh weekly by “Troop”… always good!

 Thursday – 9:00 to 12:00 ~ Dave Sag’s Blues Party

Dave Says,

It’s Hadron Collider Week at the Rhumb Line and in keeping with the Blues you can use, allow me to introduce The Earley Birds. No, not led by the riveting saxist you’re used to, but by yet another Marque Earley. This Marque is a fine and dangerous vocalist and top-notch harmonicat. He’d rather drink heavy water and sleep in a hollow logarithm. He won’t take any answer for an answer.
  He’ll be backed up by that fine glitartist, vogelist and tree surgeon: Mr. Larry Sortwell or “Lawrence of Ipswich”. His torpedo tube style is sure to please. I like it. He laughs at all my jokes, even when I’m not kidding. Formerly with that great north shore ensemble “Grapevine Road”, now he’s on easy street playing with us. John Loud , drumb octopus, another GV gold medallist will be beatin’ those skins. Of course, Greg T. will be armed and dangerous and so will I, still suffering from chronic euphemism, puttying up the cracks. It’ll be swell! Free admission with prosthetic device!

The Everlasting Literary Festival – 2nd & 4th Tuesdays every month, 7pm

Cape Ann Brewing ~

Sunday – 5:00pm ~ The Barbara and Al Boudreau Jazz Quartet

Chantey Night, an open Tuesday night sing featuring members of Three Sheets to the Wind, Knockabout, and other music groups from the North Shore and the Boston area, has moved from the now-closed Cameron’s to the Cape Ann Brewing Company. The singing begins at 8:30 every Tuesday night. For all the schooner heads this is quite a thing to see. If you have someone coming into town and want to hear and see something very different it can be pretty cool.

Be warned though- don’t go planning a meeting or meet-up where you think you’re going to be able to carry on a conversation while they are singing. Best to plan it for a different night at Cape Ann Brewing.
