w/ VIPs Fifty Water Restaurant + Ceia Kitchen & Bar
My Newburyport Night on the Town

Two Newburyport VIPs hosted holiday parties on Thursday, neither of which I was going to miss, starting with Fifty Water Restaurant & Bar’s Charity Benefit.
Fifty Water owners Robert Veek and John Moore raised over $4000 for The Pettengill House to help children and families in need.
On hand to lend his support was Veek’s cousin Chris Evans, actor in Captain America and Fantastic Four.
Prior to the charity event, kids lined up for hours to get an autograph and picture taken with Captain America.
The excitement lead into the night with hundreds of people gathered for great food, drink and music by the Red Tail Hawk band.
I was able to speak with both Veek and Moore that night. Fifty Water will definitely be doing something special for New Years Eve. There are also many other exciting things in the works for the trendy Newburyport restaurant in 2015. Stay tuned for the latest.
Next it was off to Ceia Kitchen and Bar to celebrate the restaurant’s fourth anniversary.
Entering on State I was immediately greeted by Newburyport Celebrity Bartender Bret laughing it up with his fans, I mean patrons.
Up the stairs to the second floor and there’s Ceia owner Nancy Baptista-Caswell expediting. Fresh pasta dishes had just been brought to the window. The pasta was cooked perfectly and full of colorful flavors. I submitted it to @BestFoodBoston #BostonFab5. It’s my thing.
Onto the third level, there was a beautiful crowd of people enjoying champagne and more tasty food, including a table of Mediterranean olives and cheeses.
As if the night couldn’t have been more delicious in spirit, conversation and food, on the way out Nancy insists I indulge in a Buttermilk Donut. Oh, alright!
Not bad for a Thursday.
