NY press says she’s “like Adele meets Diana Krall meets Bette Midler.” Suede was the third headliner with Melissa Etheridge and Sarah McLachlan on the Melissa Etheridge Cruise and a decades long top headliner with Olivia Cruises. Dare her. She was Joan Rivers’ opening act. Come see why. Grab the chance to see this nationally and internationally touring artist and her band. You’ll be glad you did!

    LGBT Arts & Bohemia of PTOWN

    October 27, 2022 at Crown & Anchor

    The Generations Project is back with our annual intergenerational LGBTQ+ storytelling show. We bring together all generations of LGBT people to share stories as a way to foster community. This year’s theme is Arts & Bohemia.

    Provincetown’s history as a bohemian and gay sanctuary “the island of misfit toys” during times in our history when perversions and differences were dangerous to express openly is well known. Our storytellers, long-time frequenters and residents of Ptown will tell stories about their lives that touch on these themes.

    These stories will be included in our LGBT history anthology that is part of our permanent exhibit at the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum entitled “An Anecdotal Anthology of LGBTProvincetown” where we chronicle our history of the last century through first-hand account and archival material.”

    Spooky Bear Weekend is an opportunity to “do” Halloween right for ptownie.

    A Walk in the Woods

    But there are quieter spots too. Places you can get away and reconnect with nature. There’s swimming off the breakwater, or a sunbaked day at Long Point. Sunset at Race Point is quiet celebration of shifting colors and glowing bonfires, the former often hosted by gaggles of gray seals.

    My personal favorite, however? Beech Pond.
