Cape Cod Center for the Arts gets New CE and Playhouse Producer!

Cape Playhouse, Dennis MA

I had the pleasure last week of attending the reception held at the Cape Cinema to welcome Mark Cuddy, the new CEO and Producer of the Cape Cod Center for the Arts in Dennis. See this article about Mark in the latest issue of The Register, but may I just say that the man is so talented, creative and charismatic that he made you want to write a check to support the arts right then and there!  Lots of exciting things in store for CCCA future, but one that I am particularly enthused about is what he called the "education" aspect of what will happen at the Center going forward. This will include sessions immediately preceding all performances, in which there will be discussion about behind the scenes, context of the production etc. to help the audience better understand and enjoy their theater experience. Love it!  Stay tuned to hear lots more about Mark and his plans to make our Dennis "gem" a world class campus for artful entertainment. 




DogFest Cape Cod October 5, 2013


This is our puppy, Riesling!

By now you may have heard about our puppy, Riesling, whom we are raising to be a service dog for Canine Companions for Independence.  Have we told you that these dogs are provided free of charge to their handicapped recipients?  The cost of raising and training these special animals is $50K - that's right - per dog!  To aid Canine Companions in their efforts, we are the chairpersons of a fundraiser called Dog Fest Walk 'n Roll to be held on October 5 at 1:00 at Johnny Kelley Park in South Dennis.  There are lots of ways to participate:

Grab a leash and be part of Canine Companions DogFest Walk 'n Roll! It's a community dog walk that supports the mission of Canine Companions for Independence. Register just yourself, or put together a group of friends, family members or coworkers and walk as a team.

Then fundraise!  Your fundraising efforts will transform the lives of people with disabilities and earn you an awesome DogFest Walk 'n Roll prize. If you raise $100, you get a bandana to sport at our event. Register today, you're sure to have a tail-waggin' good time!

DogFest Walk 'n Roll Cape Cod will take place Saturday, October 5, 2013 at Johnny Kelly Park.  Please call us here at Lomenzo Properties for more information!  508-385-4944

        I would like to sign up to walk on October 5. I raised a canine companion, Baci, and he will walk also. He was turned in for training November 2012 but was released a month later. We will walk with 4-5 persons. I live in Manhattan but would be happy to help via long distance. Good luck. Jean. 508-737-0158 cell

              You could certainly see your skills within the paintings you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren't afraid to mention how they believe. Always follow your heart.

                Cape Cod Seafood Secrets.........

                  This month's issue of Cape Cod Magazine has a feature article entitled "40 Secrets of Seafood" which is really terrific!   It's full of fun   information such as the fact that Wellfleet oysters are descendants of transplanted oysters from CT and Chesapeake Bay.  Who knew?   Ever wonder why lobsters, unlike some other New England seafoods, never seem to be "overfished"?  According to the article,  that's because of the inefficiency of lobster traps - only 6% of lobsters who encounter a trap will ever actually be caught.  Plus the current traps are very easy to escape from - it's a wonder we ever get a lobster on the table at all! :)  Perhaps my favorite "fun fact" is the meaning of the word SCROD - I knew that scrod is not actually a type of fish, but loved the way they give to remember that it is a way to describe the catch of the day: Specially Caught Right Off the Dock!   The article also has tips from local chefs such as the two things people do wrong when making a Newburg sauce or the key to making perfect oyster stew.  Be sure to pick up the magazine to find out for yourself how Yuji Wantanabe, chef/owner of Inaho, chooses his fish! :)

                  "Northside Fine Foods" Opens in Dennis Village

                  You might recall around this time last year, I did a video blog  on a new business that opened in the Village - Nancy's Candy, Etc.  (Click on the link in case you missed that one!) Located just west of the Dennis Village post office on Route 6A, Nancy has a new neighbor right next door -  a  gourmet food shop called NORTHSIDE FINE FOODS.  Proprietor Jane Mason says " I truly enjoy perusing through gourmet food shops - wherever I am...and that will reflect in the products you'll find in Northside Fine Foods.  Honey from Savannah, delicate oils from Italy, Black Lava Cashews from Hawaii, exotic dips from an organic farm in Florida."  Here is a video of Jane as she tells you all about her new venture.
