Great BBQ and the Real ‘Old Cape Cod’…


Hope you made the “Saturday last” event… All kinds of free staples like hot dogs, fruit salad, veggie platter, etc.  We’d have pictures, but the weather was a bit ominous. (These two cats have lost far, far, far more than their share of camera equipment to H2O.) And true to form for a hot Cape Cod Summer afternoon, it did grumble and sprinkle somewhat, but not enough to dent the fun. (Though a little downpour on the grill might have saved a few wieners from the wrath of “Bruce ‘The Incinerating Cook’ Gibson”.) But all said and done it was damn close to perfection in its own peculiar way*…

I’m just a cat, and I don’t know how to write the following, but I’ll take a shot at it…

So many people come from Boston, New York, and all points New Jersey looking for the stuff of Patti Page’s “Old Cape Cod”. Truth be told, there isn’t as much as there used to be. (Duh… Times change! But there are a few stout bastions… The Harwich Junior Theater, Brax, and the Port O’ Call all leap to mind.) And Harwich Spirits Shoppe is no exception. But Bruce has gone way out of his way to make the Shoppe… Ummm… Ummm… Let’s just say that it’s informal.

Plan on another BBQ next month, though tomorrow might just happen too. As always, it’s a freebie, all-you-can-eat, buy-nothing, informal, Cape Cod gathering. Be ready, and if you get the chance, invite Patti Page…

As always,

Two cats blogging by those ol’ wine racks…
