DEK: A letter from Provincetown
Sal’s Place: Money and Meanness in the New Ptown."
By Peter Manso
The first thing you notice
when you walk into the resurrected Sal’s Place, in the heart of Provincetown’s West End, is the hustle and bustle
of a hot restaurant: the place is packed, the noise level is high, and the servers scoot nonstop to and from the close-set
tables. There’s a museum-quality Hawthorne and other class art on the walls, but the place still has a fish shack feel,
with exposed rafters and the rhythmic slop of the bay against the pilings on which the waterfront building partially sits.
And the food—the Brodetto or Zuppa di Pesce that one Facebook blogger raves about as “so wonderful that Marcella
[Hazen] herself would flip,”—well, let me tell you, the Zuppa is so sweet, so transporting in its plummy, tomato-y
tannic richness as to have made Sal’s the vacation spot’s dining destination of choice near overnight.
All this was pretty much the word around town last summer when the fifty-four year old Sal’s Place reopened under
new management. But the food wasn’t the only things people were talking about. There were also whispers that the owner—a
single, self-described blue-collar woman who’d originally arrived in Boston from Tipperary at age 17—was at war
with her neighbors—four wealthy men, all gay, who had recently bought the abutting properties for summer party pads,
and wanted the place dead and shuttered. In fact, depending on who you knew, you might have heard about bouts of property
destruction, interminable delays for the restaurant’s opening, and armies of lawyers getting rich on both sides.
As the not-so-secret knock-down-drag-out tumbled into public
view, eating there became an almost political act. Now, after simmering all winter, locals in P-Town are waiting for the hostilities
to start afresh.
One resident called the quarrel
the “worst case of bullying” he’d come across in his 50 years in town. But you could just as well call the
fight over Sal’s place a sort of battle for Provincetown’s soul in miniature—a David and Goliath story about
whether the artists, fishermen, and non-mainstream types of all persuasions were still welcome in the new Ptown. Or is this
haven at the end of the Cape destined to become an exclusive enclave for the rich gay elite?

Nothing says freedom in Provincetown like telling people they are not free to express there opinions.
Time for us to take back the town! Let Freedom ring, isn't that what the Mayflower Pilgrims were seeking, Freedom?

"And then she can clean the grounds of 350 Bradford and perhaps get a trailer and live at
coastal Acres. It's a perfect end for this unqualified woman. Arrogant yet ignorant. Now she has found her plateau."
My, my, what a vicious little misogynist
you are! Can't wait till karma kicks your diseased soul into a pup tent in the Beech Forest.

What or who is a "town operations director"? What do they do and what department are they part of??
Seems like we have too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

Maybe She Couldn't Sleep Her Way Up
8:58 pm edt
Maybe in this city, they expect professionals to act as professionals. Maybe the city council wasn't interested
in her offerings!
The Facts Speak for Themselves
8:56 pm edt
Less than two months after being hired as city Planner, Gloria McPherson is fired. Reveals the problems tied to this
woman. Reveals her lack of knowledge. the facts speak for themselves. Period.
8:55 pm edt
One of my favorite things to read on this forum is everybody's obsession over Gloria. I liked Gloria and LOVE
how months and months can go by and her name is still regularly mentioned on this site by people who passionately hate her.
It would almost lead one to believe those who hate her are actually the ones who miss her most

The bigger question for the town of Wellfleet is how many dispensaries do we want in this area. She rejected
Bradys suggestion that the Cape was underserved. Provincetown is dealing with four dispensaries that are already in the pipeline,
she said. I dont want to see that in WF.
