Before the Block Island Seafood Co. became an actual business we had "gear." A hat was gifted to me so that meant that I had to move forward with this crazy idea. So thankful I did. Well, that hat has served me well and many folks have often asked where they could get one. Sorry folks, but the original BISCo. design is a highly coveted one and there are only two in existence. Go ahead, try eBay--they don't even have them.
The original hat has taken a beaten; it shows its age and how loved it is. A new hat was purchased and fits my nephew MTG perfectly.
Here you have two generations of Block Island Seafood Co. No better kid to adorn this special hat. Wear it well, buddy!
Last week I ran the NYC marathon and it was a most special day. My family, friends and the lovely AB came out with full-force to cheer me on and it meant the world to me. It also meant that I had to finish.
My sister met me in the Bronx and ran the last leg of the marathon with me. We are running buddies and it is a special bond that we share. We are both slow and steady, much like the beloved tortoise.
Somewhere along the 20-something mile she thought it would be a good idea to video tape me. I was too delirious to think otherwise.
On Sunday, I, along with 40,000 others, will run the ING NYC marathon making it my 3rd time along that course. BISCo. encourages everyone to get out there and cheer for the runners--fast, slow, old, young, broke-down, reeved up, no matter the condition---everyone is giving it their all and beating the odds and pushing their limits. I am proud to be a New Yorker every day but especially on this day.
I have already begun to carbo-load--my favorite part. There is no better motivation for running 26.2 miles than a big bowl of spaghetti.
Thanks to all for your support; it means so much to me and I could never do it without you.

Block Island, RI (41°09'N 71°33'W) is a small island that sits in the Atlantic Ocean between Rhode Island and Montauk Point, NY. For many years it has been a vacation spot for me and my family, and now I’d like to bring Block Island to your dinner table.
