Mother’s day and Memorial Day Weekend Plans with Woodman’s 0

As school is personally coming to its yearly end, I find myself, once again, excited and hopeful for the comforts of warm, relaxing summer months ahead.  As the seasons noticeably change around us here in New England, many families and people will begin to look forward to their summer plans in attempts to find relaxation […]

Mother’s Day Dining, The Top Deck, and Graduation Parties 0

As we gratefully move forward from last week’s disaster and consequent mayhem, may we never forget those who rose to help, how we all came together, and those who we have lost.  At the same time, now is the best time for our community to begin to look ahead and continue to strive for happiness […]

Boston Community Outshines Any Acts of Terror 1

These particular blog entries have followed a similar theme over the past month; I have attempted to illustrate how in the coming seasons, loved ones, old and young, will come together and enjoy once again summer and an American tradition, Woodman’s of Essex.  “A Yankee Tradition since 1914”, it only seems appropriate then to refrain […]

Family Is, As Family Does 0

I went to a fundraiser last Friday night for the Mr. and Mrs. L. Dexter Woodman Scholarship Fund. It was held at The Essex Room at Woodman’s. Woodman’s has been around for 100 years and the Essex Room (known also as the Function Hall, or the Hall, or out back) for nearly half that time. […]

Spring is in the Air 0

The warm weather and sun have certainly returned to the northeast, burning away the memories of a cold and snowy winter.  Everyone can feel it within themselves the day the weather really starts to turn.  Soon after, everything starts falling into place, early season sunburns, reading a book outside with a cold drink as your […]

Boundless Choices at Woodman’s of Essex 0

As I escaped New England’s last wintry blizzard this past week to my metro Philadelphia college campus, I found more than a handful of people I encountered commenting on what I was wearing.  I had on my white long sleeve Woodman’s t-shirt.  On this short appears a navy blue clam on the front with the […]

Searching the WWW-Woodmans, Warm Weather and Wicked Awesome 0

It is hard, as March gets underway, not to think about warmer weather, going outside, eating great seafood and preparing for the summer. Last night, I went to bed feeling pretty good. When I drove home at 5:00 it was still light out. Ok, lighter than it was a month ago. My mind always goes […]

Woodman’s of Essex, the Essence of a New England Summer 1

As we spring forward this Sunday and hopefully will have faced our last bit of snow for the season, New Englanders hope to soon hear the familiar springtime chirps and songs of birds, see colorful blooming of flowers, and enjoy the beauties a New England springtime presents.  Of course, here in New England, many enjoy […]

Red Hat Ladies’ Trip to Woodman’s Clam Shack 0

Back in the 1950s my mother and father packed us all up in our red 1951 Pontiac and drive from our house in the Back Bay of Boston to a memorable outing up route 1 toward the North Shore of Boston. First, we went swimming and sunbathing in the Atlantic Ocean at Crane’s Beach, in Ipswich on a […]
