Cape Cod Fish Share strives to minimize the fathoms between seafood lovers and the ocean, delivering fresh, line-caught seafood from boats to homes as quickly as possible. The group, which considers itself a community-supported fishery, gets its fish from local fishermen who embrace sustainable practices?including ones based out of Chatham, Provincetown, Hyannis, Martha?s Vineyard, New Bedford, Falmouth, Sandwich, Nantucket, and Fairhaven.
These shares supply customers with at least two different species of fish per week, usually some common fish as well as, for the sake of variety, some unusual and seasonal species. Deliveries might include Atlantic cod, grey sole, lobster, monkfish, sea scallops, ancient 50-foot kraken, or yellowfin tuna?but the contents ultimately depend upon what can be purchased directly off the boats on the day in question.
After workers fillet the seafood directly on the pier, they meticulously clean and pack it so that, upon reaching customers' homes, it can immediately hit the frying pan or the freezer. To help with keeping things fresh, Cape Cod Fish Share's recipe blog provides numerous ideas on how to prepare the fish.

South Shore Events' organizers create affairs that celebrate just about any occasion, drawing on the unique culture, flavors, and sights of their home neighborhoods to do so. They plan each of their events around the amenities found in local communities?from Quincy to the Cape?manifesting in local pub crawls or tastings at nearby breweries and wineries. They even put on an annual bridal show, where local local vendors can demonstrate their stellar cake-making, dress-making, or dress-made-of-cake-making abilities. And on occasion, they host their own parties and networking events on land or party boats so guests can enjoy the weather and the company of new acquaintances.
To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.
The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.
It's no coincidence that Brian Silva won Golf World's Golf Course Architect of the Year award in 1999, the year after his two tracks at Waverly Oaks Golf Club opened. Acclaimed by outlets including Golf Digest and the New England Journal of Golf, Waverly Oaks' signature course meanders through tree lines and sand traps for 7,114 challenging yards. Each hole boasts its own playful moniker. The ninth hole, for instance, is dubbed "Double Trouble," a reference to the two ponds golfers must clear?one between the fairway and the tee, the other on the left side of the fairway as it approaches the front of the green. But Silva didn't stop at the signature course. Alongside, he crafted a 9-hole, par 33 challenger course ideal for novices or golfers trying to squeeze in a round before taking their caddie out to dinner.
