Desperately Seeking Spring

Friends, we are all about being positive but this weather is beginning to break us. So, in this issue we’re just going to bury our heads in the … snow? … and try to make the best of it. Who’s in?

 in this issue

We spoke to some local musicians about how they and their families are forging through, came up with a boatload of happenings around the Cape sure to distract you, and co-editor Amanda Converse wrestled with grocery shopping locally in the third installment of her series on a year of spending 90% of her dollars on Cape.

In our pint-size picks: we Love songbirds for they mean spring is near (and because we can’t get enough of our local chanteuses), libraries make for cozy places to Live it up (quietly!), and Local gluten-free or Paleo peeps can get a delicious fix at a favorite bakery.
