Halloween in Provincetown

Halloween, Boston, Provincetown, Providence, Ogunquit

Halloween in Provincetown a.k.a. “Spooky Bear” can be an amazing experience. It combines the theatrics and creativity you only find in LGBTQ enclaves in major cities like NYC and Los Angeles with small town charm and quirkiness. I don’t know if there is another small town in America (Ptown has < 3,000 year round residents) that can compete.

Unfortunately, the pandemic will inevitably blunt the experience for anyone planning to visit next weekend. All large-scale events and traditional parties hosted each year have been cancelled. If you’ve not heard, many businesses closed prematurely for the season (including huge venues like the Crown & Anchor) and several businesses are going out of business (I will miss Bodybody and their post season sales terribly).

The Provincetown Guild has a complete list of businesses that remain open through Halloween weekend, and I recommend you check this out if you’ve yet to make plans but are contemplating spending next weekend in Ptown.

Oh yeah, and as a sidenote, MaineStreet in Ogunquit has closed for the season. Can we all agree that 2020 really stinks and we need someone who can end this f*cking pandemic!

Provincetown’s Long Point light house

If the weather is good (warm and not much of a breeze) you’ll probably find me on a kayak in Ptown harbor. Last year’s post, Kayaking Provincetown harbor, is one of many I’ve shared over the years. Keeping with tradition, Sergio joined me  kayaking out to Long Point. It was a great workout and a great way to escape the heat of  the day. Sadly, we didn’t see much wildlife this year.

About Long Point is located at the extreme tip of the Provincetown peninsula, that curls back in on itself to create Provincetown Harbor. The Long Point Light was built in 1827. The lighthouse once shared this peninsula with a settlement of fishermen that came to be known as Long Point, Massachusetts, that thrived from 1818 until the late 1850s. When the settlers decided to leave Long Point, they took most of their houses with them.  Today, Long Point is a ghost village – nothing remains, except for the lighthouse and an earthen mound, the last remnant from the earlier military post.  More about Long Point here.

Hightown premieres on STARZ May 17

Provincetown, PtownFor those of you who love Provincetown and are looking for something new to watch, check out Hightown on STARZ, which premieres Sunday, May 17th.

Shot in Provincetown, Mass. the show centers on Jackie Quinones played by actress Monica Raymund (Chicago Fire) as a gay fisheries agent, who’s life gets thrown into disarray when she discovers a dead body on the beach – another casualty of Cape Cod’s opioid epidemic. As a result of the trauma, Jackie takes her first steps toward becoming sober until she becomes convinced that it’s up to her to solve the murder at which point things spiral out a bit out of control.  Hightown on STARZ is eight episodes and premieres this Sunday.

Check out the trailer below.

Provincetown in an uproar over Cirque du Soleil

I love ProvincetownUPDATE: The Provincetown Independent Reports Cirque will not come to Provincetown this summer. Details here

Last month heads started to spin when it was reported that Cirque du Soleil would be coming to Provincetown for the summer. More than 70 members of the town’s entertainment community have formerly voiced opposition to the plan which has been shrouded in secrecy. Edge Media reported that town officials have signed non-disclosure agreements, but an announcement is expected at the town’s select board meeting tomorrow, Monday, February 10th.

While I can appreciate the appeal of Cirque du Soleil, I wanted to share my point of view (not that anyone asked but this blog affords me such indulgences).

  Provincetown should reject this plan

If the Cirque would like to come to Cape Cod, towns more centrally located like Hyannis are a far better fit; providing a larger population, better infrastructure and less strain on room inventory already stretched in the summer. Choosing a location at the edge of the Cape will require much of their audience to come from Ptown and surrounding communities.

As amazing as Provincetown’s homegrown arts and entertainment industry may be it is still a fragile thing and promoters cannot compete with the marketing budget and muscle of an international brand like Cirque. Cherished institutions like the Art House, Provincetown Theater, The Crown & Anchor, The Pilgrim House, etc… will be crushed and the arts landscape of Ptown will be left in the dust long after the Cirque packs up their big tent and pulls out of town.

I hope this plan is soundly rejected and any commitments that may have been made can be undone. The first step in making a change is for residents and business owners alike to show up in force on Monday to voice their opposition.

Marijuana dispensary opens in Provincetown

smoking weed, pot, 420Cape Cod’s first adult-use retail marijuana dispensary opened today in Provincetown. Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. is located at 170 Commercial Street in the heart of Ptown under Joe’s Coffee.

For now, the store’s hours of operation will be 10AM to 6PM, Monday through Saturday and from 10AM to 5PM on Sunday. However, store hours will expand from 9AM to 9PM during the summer season.

Vintage gay

Back in March of 2016 I posted this photo, here. Since then these weekly “vintage gay” blog posts have grown in popularity, which is in part why this week’s post is my 199th Vintage Gay blog post. I hope you continue to enjoy reading these posts – they are a personal favorite of mine.

I dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price. Do you have a photo you would like to share? Email me at bosguymail@gmail.com.

New mixed use development proposed in Ptown

old reliable fish houseA 31-room hotel, restaurant and bar with outdoor dining, and four condominiums was presented last month to the Provincetown planning and zoning boards with the intention to redevelop the Old Reliable Fish House property on the waterfront at 229R Commercial Street.

The Old Reliable was a popular place to eat in Provincetown in the 1970s and through  the 1990s the waterfront restaurant offered cozy dining on the beach but the restaurant has now been closed for years and the building has fallen into severe disrepair and was condemned in 2015 following a fire. You can read more about this interesting real estate development in the heart of Ptown in The Provincetown Independent and you can learn more about the history of 229R Commercial Street (and see some great photos of the property), here.

Kayaking Provincetown harbor

provincetown floating unicorn

While kayaking in Ptown harbor, we met up with this ferocious sea monster.

Each year my friend Ed and I kayak out to Long Point lighthouse then kayak along the interior, curling dunes that protect Provincetown harbor from the open sea until we get to the Red Inn. It really is a great way to see Provinceotwn, mingle with curious seals, bump into others and get some exercise all at once.

Below is my amateur illustration of the route we took after leaving Flyers Boat Rentals. None of the photographs of the pod of seals came out so I opted for a cuter cartoon caricature to show approximately where they were feeding and sunning themselves, but all the other photos were snapped by me.

The weather was picture perfect, and the roughly 3.5 mile trek was made easier because high tide was cresting and there was no headwind. Our first leg had us cutting through the harbor, making a beeline to Long Point lighthouse but as we neared the sandy hook of the tip of the Cape, we noticed a boat full of men in various stages of undress jumping off the boat, swimming and basically just having a good time. I was so clueless and ended up awkwardly kayaking between them. They were good sports about it and since I was all of 5′ from them, I refrained from gawking or taking photos.

provincetownAfter we pulled our kayaks up on the beach we walked around a bit and took the obligatory selfies in front of Long Point lighthouse which was constructed back in the early 1800s.  Neither Ed nor I felt much like sitting still so we put our kayaks back in the water, hugging the coastline and coming to shore so I could snap this photo (see below) which shows how narrow the dunes get: below is a photo of open ocean on the left and Ptown’s sheltered harbor on the right.

After, we aimed our kayaks for the historic Red Inn to enjoy some ‘light refreshments’. En route, we found ourselves surrounded by a pod of about 20 seals. They were both curious and skittish so while it was fun to see them swimming all around us, none of my photos could quite capture the moment.

Part of the reward of all that kayaking, is knowing we will enjoy cold beers and raw bar. After about 2 hours of ‘relaxing’ by the bar, we put our kayaks back in the water one final time to return the rentals. On our way back we stumbled upon these two sea monsters who turned out to be quite friendly and the perfect ending to a great day out in Provincetown.

Provincetown’s Provinceland bike trail

Provincetown duneSergio and I come to Provincetown a couple times each year and whenever we visit I’m reminded how much I enjoy it here. It really is a special place for us.

Earlier this week I opted to rent a bike and escape the heat by riding out to Race Point which you can get to on bike trails on Cape Cod’s National Seashore. The hilly ride through the dunes and forest in Provincetown is such a fun way to spend a few hours of your day if you want to get out and enjoy the weather.

Below are a few more photos from that bike ride. Provincetown duneProvincetownProvincetown duneWhile there is never a bad season to visit Provincetown, there is something very rewarding about working up a sweat biking through the bicycle trails and ending up at Race Point Beach where you can hop in the water, take in the spectacular coastline and cool off.

I biked the Cape Cod Provinceland Trail for more info about the bike trail visit, The Cape Cod Bike Guide.

Much thanks to our friends Dave & Chris who invited us to join them in Ptown, which afforded me the opportunity to share these great photos.

Pilot program for marijuana cafes in Massachusetts

Yes on 4, legalize pot in MassachusettsProvincetown named as one of five potential communities to pilot cafes

Last week Boston.com shared a story on how Massachusetts state regulators are now starting to focus on licensing “consumption establishments” so they can open for business in the state. Referred to as cannabis cafes or marijuana lounges, social consumption establishments are just what they sound like. But of course since this is Massachusetts this will likely take time as regulators discuss and debate how to proceed before a cafe is licensed to open.

A pilot program is being evaluated and will be capped at a maximum of 12 communities, beginning with the five — Amherst, North Adams, Provincetown, Somerville, and Springfield — that participated in the working group, if they choose to opt in. At the moment, regulators are suggesting two types of licenses under the proposed pilot: Primary-use licenses, like cannabis cafes, and event host licenses for public events where marijuana could be consumed, like a concert or festival. At the moment indoor smoking would be prohibited due to the statewide ban on indoor smoking but the proposed pilot program would let event hosts could allow smoking in a designated outdoor area and vaping could be allowed indoors with proper ventilation.
