Maine to Massachusetts Shark Sightings, A Great White Finally Closes a Cape Cod Beach

We're reading about shark sightings several times a month around New England, especially in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Cape Cod is leading the count, sometimes with up to 10 sightings a week. These sightings don't surprise me much, as the Cape's become a hot bed over the last decade with more and more sharks sightings, including Great Whites. There's even a "Cape Shark" store, as well as social media pages by The Cape Shark.

New England Breweries – Please Don’t Follow This Texas Brewery’s Lead

We have our own local slang for them here in New England. In Maine, especially inside of Hadlock Field, they’re known as “red snappahs.” Down at Fenway Park in Boston, you order a “Fenway Frank.” Inside of Northeast Delta Dental Stadium – actually, outside of calling it a “Fishercat Frank” or a “Fisher Frank,” they may just call it a plain old hot dog. But that’s where it ends for us.

Without giving too much information away, that is probably the best synopsis that I can give you.
