Ptown on the brain

Last weekend I was in Provincetown with Sergio and friends.

Unfortunately, plans prevent us from heading there again this weekend so I’ve posted a few photos from last week to help keep the memories alive a bit longer. Where are you spending your weekend? You in Ptown? Ogunquit, Fire Island, Ra-Cha-Cha (pardon the local reference only gay Bostonians would know).

Will you be visiting Provincetown later this summer? Do you have any questions about your trip? Feel free to contact me. I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.

Yunus and Devon at Boatslip

Boatslip in ProvincetownIf you have visited The Boatslip in Provincetown this summer to catch some sun on their deck, chances are either Yunus or Devon (shown above) have grabbed your chairs and helped you get situated.   Our previous trip to Provincetown during 4th of July was when we met Devon and on this more recent visit since it was more quiet we were able to talk to both guys a bit more.

Yunus is originally from Turkey but now lives in Massachusetts near where he is going to college.  Devon is from Vermont originally but is currently attending school in Rhode Island.  If you happen to see these guys, tell them that BosGuy says hello and slip an extra dollar in the tip jar for these two students.

Dining at Ten Tables Provincetown

Provincetown DiningThis past weekend we joined a few friends for a relaxing dinner at Ten Tables in Provincetown. While I routinely review restaurants, today’s post is not about our food (although I will say I enjoyed my meal). Today’s post is about the company who joined us for dinner at Ten Tables: Slobodan in the dark polo shirt, followed by Frédéric and his fiance, Olivier, both in white. Frédéric and Olivier are originally from France, Slobodan is Serbian, and Sergio is Brazilian; making me the token American.

Ten Tables ProvincetownDinner provided us the perfect opportunity to spend a couple of hours together talking about life, work, Provincetown, etc… Although I’ve spent time 1:1 with everyone and consider them friends, the five of us have never shared a meal together.  There is something really fantastic about spending a couple of hours over a meal with such an interesting group of men.

At one point in the evening, I stepped back, watching my partner and friends interacting, and made a note that Sergio and I need to do this more often.

P.S.Can you tell that facial hair is quite “in” at the moment? 

P.P.S. Can you tell that I hadn’t shaved in 4 days? I suppose I’ll just have to wait for the preppy look to come back again.

Ptown state of mind

Provincetown FrerrySergio and I are heading back to Provincetown this morning via the fast ferry.  This is our first visit since early July, and I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with good friends.  Posting and comment approval may be a bit erratic while I”m gone – thank you for your patience.

Restaurant review: Pepe’s Wharf

MiroPepe’s Wharf is located in the East End of Provincetown just off of Commercial Street. The restaurant has been around for four decades and consistently serves good food with a beautiful view of MacMillan Wharf and Provincetown harbor.

I like Pepe’s for three reasons: the view, the food is consistent and our friend Miro (shown above) works as a host at Pepe’s this summer so its a good excuse to say hello.

Pepe’s menu is divided into soups, salads and appetizers that range in price from $8 to $24 — most of the more expensive options are if you add lobster. The remainder of the menu is divided between burgers and sandwiches that range $10 to $21 and main plates that range from $17 to $32.

Pepes Wharf DinnerMy advice when dining at Pepe’s is to stick to the burgers and sandwiches.  The food is filling and satisfying – but it is the view that I appreciate most.  Dinner reservations are strongly recommended and if you stop by, be sure to tell Miro that I say hello.

Gallery night in Provincetown

Keith Krisa Diana CameraIn addition to plenty of bars and restaurants and scores of shows one can see while staying in Provincetown, each Friday most galleries (of which there are very many) host evening receptions for artists and art enthusiasts.

Later next month, the West End gallery, AMP – Art Market Provincetown, located at 148 Commercial Street will feature work from Keith Krisa, a Cambridge, MA artist, who uses plastic cameras to create his images.  I think Keith has created some beautiful images like the one above.  Some of his work is currently on display but his show will run from Aug. 12 – 26th.

Opening Reception at AMP Gallery is Fri., Aug 16th 6-9pm

Why I take the ferry to Provincetown

Provincetown traffic

This was the article in The Boston Globe after epic traffic had many in their car for hours.  Without traffic, Boston to Ptown takes approximately 2 hours.  However, several friends spent more than 5 hours driving back home last weekend.  My advice, take the ferry if you live in Boston.

Need details about the ferry companies and schedules? Give me a shout and I’m happy to offer my advice.

4th of July in Provincetown

ProvincetownLast week I was joined by tens of thousands of men who spent their 4th of July holiday and weekend in Provincetown. The weather was incredibly hot, making Ptown the perfect place to be.  The beaches, pools and pretty much everywhere was packed but all seemed to have fun – I know I did.  Enjoy the quick video below and much thanks to everyone who posed.

Saturday starts yet another huge theme week, Bear Week, in Provincetown.  If you are going – have a blast.

Special thanks to The Crown and Anchor for providing passes to check out all the parties they hosted through the week.

Justin Utley playing Provincetown’s Crown and Anchor

Justin UtleyNext week, on Thursday, July 18th the ever so hunky Justin Utley will be performing one show during Bear Week in Provincetown at The Crown and Anchor.

Not familiar with Justin? I first wrote about him in early 2012 back when each Monday I posted my  “Men of Twitter“.

I’ve also included below a video clip of Justin’s song “It Is What It Is“.  If you like what you hear and want to hear more, you may purchase tickets (provided they are still available) online here.
