Fresh fish dominates menus around the region (especially on Fridays) and an important save-the-date for the biggest aquatic event of the summer.
Bartlett’s, Brews and Live Music: Wednesday, a blessedly clear but otherwise unremarkable late-February day, achieved a sold-out event at Bartlett’s in Beverly Shores. The SOS went out in the morning that tickets were gone for the evening, but there may have still been stragglers who ended up disappointed. The moral of the story is if you want to get in on a Bartlett’s event---like the bus tour coming up --- reserve and commit or you may miss out. I’m just saying. The March 8th tour will stop at Journeyman Distillery, Round Barn and the Livery and there are only 10 tickets left right now.
