Start your day off right

Last fall Salem Food Tours added a new option to their already delicious schedule of tours: the Saturday Morning Coffee Walk.  The walks are so popular, they are now a regular feature in the Salem Food Tour schedule.

This special walk around downtown Salem and along the waterfront gives guests an overview of Salem's local history, as well as the scoop on restaurants, food shops, and boutique shopping.  The tour is great for locals and visitors alike, and includes complimentary organic coffee or tea (this tour does not include food tastings, for those you need the full Salem Food Tour!).  The 80-minute tour is a great way to start your day in Salem.

Email info@salemfoodtours.com or call (978) 594-8811 to make a reservation.  Coffee Walks are open to all ages, children under 6 are free, all others are $20.

Fresh donuts from Ziggy's in Salem. YES, those are donuts!!! and they are fantastic!

“No Backing Down” Book Release Event

No Backing Down Book Release Party

Salem is about to start a new chapter in its literary history, and you're invited to the page-turning celebration.  Written by player agent and Salem High School Hall of Fame member Sean Stellato, No Backing Down is the story of the 1994 Salem teachers' strike that resulted in head football coach Ken Perrone's decision to defy an order to cease and desist coaching his team. Not only did Perrone defy the order, he took the team to the Division 3A Superbowl. 

Sports fans won't want to miss this great event at the Hawthorne Hotel, so mark your calendar for July 11!
