Locals Make Their Mark


eaders often ask me, “How do you come up with your People to Watch list every year?” I attend many community events across the Cape, read local newspapers, scroll through social media posts daily and converse with leaders in diverse fields. Ultimately, I choose people who are making a difference in their community, making headlines in a positive way and have a certain buzz surrounding them. This year, I profile business owners, an elementary school principal, a bossa nova band and an innovative chef, among others. Last year, my People to Watch issue included the owners of Devil’s Purse Brewing Company. Writer Lisa Cavanaugh catches up with them in the story “Brewed on Cape Cod,” about several craft breweries on the Cape. In addition to Devil’s Purse, she speaks with the owners of Hog Island Beer Company in Orleans and Naukabout Beer Company, set to open a brewery

in the former Flume restaurant in Mashpee. Continuing with the theme of business growth, a husband-and-wife team who started the children’s clothing company Tuff Kookooshka 18 years ago recently opened their first retail space in Cataumet. In the article, “A Success Story: One Stitch at a Time,” read about how the couple grew their business from their Falmouth home into a company that sells to stores and boutiques across the United States, Canada and Japan. Since it’s been six years since we last published our “Winter Survival Guide,” I thought it was a good time to revisit this helpful guide, which features fun activities and events in the colder months. Finally, to kick off 2017, we are launching a new column called Shop Talk. Each month, we will highlight a business and their products and chat with the store owner in a Q&A format. Happy New Year!

Evoke Your Inner Om


At Evoke Yoga & Meditation, owner Jessica Riley-Norton has created a spacious and serene oasis where those seeking to learn or practice can do so in a welcoming environment. “People who have never tried yoga are coming and enjoying it,” says Riley-Norton. Some of the classes offered at Evoke include restorative yoga, a slow flow, which is great for beginners, and also more common practices like Hatha and Iyengar. During Yin yoga with Thai massage, yogis hold poses for up to 20 minutes while the instructor manipulates muscles into deep stretches, a spa-like experience for your connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. There is a class for all ages and skill levels. In fact, family yoga classes are offered on Sundays. “We’re showing the Hyannis community that people are able to thrive and find more joy in their lives,” says Riley-Norton, “and to feel good about themselves as they are.” —Ann Luongo Evoke Yoga & Meditation, 64 Enterprise Road, Hyannis, 844-evoke-luv (386-5358), 10




Orleans-Based Marching Band Traveling to Dubai


pirit of America is a marching band with a mission. With the goal of teaching life skills such as teamwork, leadership, sportsmanship and service, the Orleans-based band travels the country and the world performing and sharing music. In January, Spirit of America will travel to Dubai to perform and assist Drum Corps United Arab Emirates Performing Arts in forming the first marching band in the country and the Middle East. Spirit of America has conducted similar workshops and educational programs in South Korea, South Africa, Australia and Canada. “In the past, Spirit of America has initiated the program,” explains director Richard K. Pugsley. “In this instance, the folks at Drum Corps UAE reached out to us. Apparently, word has spread!” The two-week visit will include workshops and one-on-one instruction covering all aspects of field band. A performance featuring both Spirit of America and the Dubai students will punctuate the trip. “What makes this project unique and really mind-blowing is the band will not only perform, but they will then spend a week giving one-on-one instruction to each of

the Dubai young people,” says Pugsley. “Many of the members of Spirit are music education majors so this gives them reallife classroom experience and with a language challenge!” SOA is a melting pot of America, with the assembled group of musicians coming from 27 different states in the U.S. “The group includes some of the ‘all stars’ of the drums corps and marching programs across our nation,” says Pugsley. Local groups like the police and fire departments of Sandwich, Sandwich High School, Cape Cod Academy and Oak Ridge Elementary School have been integral in supporting the musicians when they visited the Cape to plan and rehearse. Pugsley is quick to note the collaborative nature of the project. “This has not been possible without the support of others—the crews who cook meals and drive to and from the airport and the young people who have decided it is worth spending some of their lives giving back to others. It’s cool!” —Amanda Wastrom For more information on Spirit of America, go to




shop} talk!

How long have you owned the store?

I founded the store in 2003 and owned it solely until January 2016 when our longtime manager, Ashley Carr, became co-owner.  Which location opened first? Mashpee or Dennisport?  Actually, the first store to open was a cart in the Cape Cod Mall. We then opened a quaint little shop in Osterville before moving our flagship store to Mashpee Commons, where it is today. We opened our Dennisport location in April of 2012. Do the stores offer different items and services?  Both stores offer hip, fun and essential healthy goods for people and their pups. Additionally, our Dennisport location has a self-serve dog wash, as well as full-service grooming.  What are some of your most popular items?  A “protein bar,” which includes U.S.-sourced chews, treats and bones. Some are great to give as rewards, others as treats and others we like to call “pup sitters,” as they keep your dog entertained for long periods of time. Our collars and leashes are also super popular. They are made in Mashpee and pups from all over the globe wear them.  Are you planning to include any new products this year?  Yes! We attend trade shows throughout the year to bring the latest and greatest of the dog world to Cape Cod. Recently, we brought in the iFetch, an automatic ball launcher: You can either play along with your dog, or train your dog to load the machine and he can play independently.

then now


he first lighthouse at Nobska Point was built in 1829. Made of wood, it was mounted onto the roof of a typical Cape Cod-style house, where the civilian lightkeeper lived. It had problems with leakage, as was typical of lighthouses constructed of wood. The lantern

reportedly created too much stress for the roof. In 1876, the lighthouse was replaced by the 40-foot-tall tower that still stands today. Constructed in Chelsea out of cast iron on the outside and lined with brick on the inside, it was created in four sections and transported to Nobska. The lighthouse and its accompanying lightkeeper’s quarters were originally painted in a dark, brick red color. A lightkeeper assistant’s house was built right next to the existing one in 1907. The house that stands today actually comprises both houses, which were eventually joined together. Today, the premises are maintained by Friends of Nobska Light, a nonprofit organization created in 2015. Having transferred stewardship from the Coast Guard, the Friends have plans to restore the premises and convert them into a maritime museum. —Marina Davalos For more information, please visit

Kareem Sanjaghi, who has performed with famed trumpeter Lou Colombo, Tony Orlando and Tony Bennett’s band, attended Nauset Regional High School and Cape Cod Community College before graduating from Boston College.

Dream Beat Young drummer from Brewster earns reputation as a favorite among top musicians areem Sanjaghi has been playing drums professionally since he was just 13 years old. His grandfather, jazz pianist Bob Hayes, asked him to perform in a show that included famed trumpeter Lou Colombo. 26


Since then, Sanjaghi has jammed with Tony Bennett’s band and hopped on stage to back up Tony Orlando. “When these things happen,” says Sanjaghi, “I think about something my grandfather told me: ‘I don’t care who you’ve

played with. I care if you can play.’” “That’s always in the back of my mind,” says Sanjaghi. “You have to keep working harder and raising your game. When you get up to play, people don’t care about your resume; it’s ‘What can you do for me right now?’” Sanjaghi, 28, is plenty busy these days. He plays jazz with the Bert Jackson Quartet (with Jackson on guitar, Roe Osborn on bass and Paul Lesniak on saxophone) and blues with The Wicked Trio (also featuring Jackson and Osborn). He continues to play with his grandfather, who has his own regular gigs at the Captain’s Table restaurant in Hyannis. Although Sanjaghi has high standards for himself, he has plenty of fans. Orlando called him “one hell of a drummer” and Colombo, with whom Sanjaghi played regularly for 10 years, called the young drummer “one of my all-time favorite musicians.”

Other artists Sanjaghi has played with include pianist Eddie Higgins, singer Donna Byrne and blues harmonica player Jerry Portnoy. Sanjaghi started playing drums when he was 11. Back then, he thought “it would be fun if I could play a gig, just one gig with Grandpa.” Sanjaghi loves the improvisational nature of jazz. “It’s like a language. You might not have met someone before, but you can talk to them. It’s the same with a jazz musician. You speak the language and you get up and play.” “Jazz music involves real mastery of the instrument. Some of the guys I’ve played with, the things that they’re doing technically are inhuman. Lou Colombo’s playing was crazy stuff,” says Sanjaghi. Born on the Cape, Sanjaghi attended Nauset Regional High School and Cape Cod Community College before graduating from Boston College. He lives in Brewster and works in the residential lending division of the Cape Cod Five operations center in Orleans.




arts culture | ARTIST PROFILE Kareem Sanjaghi performs with famed trumpeter Lou Colombo at the grand opening of the Davenport Mugar Cancer Center at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis in 2006.

Music and banking seem different, he admits, but he sees connections. “They both boil down to attention to detail, hard work and surrounding yourself with a good team or good musicians,” he says. “They both work your mind and keep you stimulated. One helps the other.” “Whatever you do in life, it’s good to have multiple things going on, so you don’t get burned out.”


Kareem Sanjaghi is scheduled to perform with The Wicked Trio at 8 p.m. on Jan. 14 at Harvest Gallery Wine Bar, 776 Main St. (Route 6A), Dennis. Sanjaghi will also perform at 3 p.m. on Jan. 28 at the Wellfleet Public Library, 55 West Main St., Wellfleet. For more information, visit

Now in his third year as owner of Cape Cloth, Sean Fitzpatrick went from having just four designs of caps to producing soft and stylish sweatshirts and T-shirts, winter hats, baby clothes and dog collars. “When people tell me they wear one of my sweatshirts 10 times more than any other thing, it’s the best compliment you can get,” says Fitzpatrick, during an interview at Kaleidoscope Imprints in West Yarmouth, a screenprinting and embroidery company for his apparel. Since launching Cape Cloth in October 2014, Fitzpatrick has learned a lot about himself and about the value of community, family and friendship. When Cape Cloth was in its infancy, he faced a 15-month legal battle with an international athletic company over his distinctive logo, a “modernized” version of Cape Cod. The two reached an amicable agreement, and with this challenge behind him, Fitzpatrick says, “2017 is the year that I envisioned having right away,” in the sense that he can now focus on just his business and not the “extra-curricular stuff.” To set himself apart, Dennis native Fitzpatrick (also known as “Fitzy”) writes personal notes enclosed with each order. “I will sit there for a half-hour writing one-liners to people because it makes a difference,” says Fitzgerald, who gave the keynote address at the Cape Cod Young Professionals’ first annual Shape Your Cape Summit in May 2016. The Dennis resident is among a growing number of entrepreneurs on the Cape who are making a difference and giving back to their community. For every item sold, he donates $1 to Cape Abilities. Cape Cloth apparel is available at Cape Abilities Farm, 458 Route 6A, Dennis, 508-3852538 and Cranberry Valley Golf Course, 183 Oak St., Harwich, 508-430-5234.

When Gary and Jeff Tulman visited Pairpoint a couple of years ago, they weren’t looking to buy a glass company. The brothers, who have private equity backgrounds in both real estate and turnarounds, were asked to reposition the property and liquidate the struggling company. But when they learned about Pairpoint’s rich history and met the talented artisans at America’s oldest glass company—founded in 1837—they became intrigued and started to see the potential of revitalizing the high-end brand. “For Gary and me, it’s a big blank canvas,” says Jeff, above right, during an interview in the factory’s “hot shop,” where artisans are busy at work. Since buying the business, they have relaunched Pairpoint’s one-of-a-kind signature bubble doorknobs and created custom chandeliers for a New York casino. Their long-term plans include redesigning and renovating the showroom, giving the front and back exteriors a facelift, upgrading the manufacturing facility and adding a café with a direct water view of the Cape Cod Canal. Their ultimate goal: Adding a Cape Cod Central Railroad stop at Pairpoint since tracks run behind the back of the building. The railroad carries 125,000 passengers annually on dinner trains and scenic tours, and they hope to turn Pairpoint into a destination and experience for visitors. By this spring and summer, visitors will begin to see physical changes, says Gary, who grew up outside of Boston with his brother and spent summers on the Cape. Pairpoint pieces are sold at the Sagamore factory as well as at Tiffany & Co. and Shreve, Crump & Low. You’ll also find collections on display at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Pairpoint, 851 Sandwich Road, Sagamore, 508-888-2344,


Jason Montigel hangs out with his dog, Flurry, at Crowes Pasture in East Dennis. The oysters Montigel serves at his restaurant are sourced from Crowes Pasture.

“There is wonderful food on Cape Cod,” says Jason Montigel, the chef/owner at Clean Slate Eatery, who has worked at restaurants on the Cape and Nantucket. “We are just doing something a little bit different.” Inside the modern, 16-seat fine-dining restaurant, which opened last spring, diners can enjoy six small courses plated on a stainless steel table in front of them by Montigel and his staff. Entrees range from day boat scallops on top of ricotta cavatelli and charred ramps (wild onions) to New England redfish with charred shishito red peppers. The menu is inspired by what’s available at local farms, including Cape Abilities in Dennis and Chatham Bars Inn farm, located on Route 6A in Brewster. Diners will never see the same menu twice. In 2017, Montigel plans to open a food trailer called Staff Meal Trailer, with the goal of serving breakfast sandwiches all day. “We’re definitely not standing still with just the restaurant,” says Georgia native Montigel, who says the trailer will be parked at the restaurant. “Clean Slate is about community more than anything else,” says Montigel. “It’s about people breaking bread together, forgetting about the troubles of the world. Everybody has opinions, but at the end of the day, everybody needs to eat, everybody needs to relax and everybody needs to enjoy each other.” Clean Slate Eatery, 702 Main St., Dennis, 508-292-8817,


PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR, WOODS HOLE OCEANOGRAPHIC INSTITUTION When Mark Abbott accepted the position of president and director of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution more than a year ago, he became the 10th director in the organization’s 85-year history. He succeeded Susan Avery, who served from 2008 to 2015. Abbott, a nationally recognized earth scientist and former dean of Oregon State University, says his overall vision for WHOI is “persistent innovation.” Born and raised in Palo Alto, California, the epicenter of Silicon Valley, Abbott says it was an incredible opportunity to step into a high-profile role at WHOI, known as the pinnacle in the marine science field worldwide. The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation recently awarded WHOI a $250,000 seed grant. This will allow scientists to study a new path for ocean research and ultimately bring rapid technology to the ocean instrumentation world. One project Abbott is excited about includes a new partnership with NASA and its jetpropulsion lab, Ocean Worlds, which will examine oceans and other bodies in the solar system. His long-term goal, however, includes rebuilding the waterfront. “What distinguishes WHOI from a lot of places is that we are right on the ocean,” says Abbott. So why is studying the ocean so important? “We are the ocean planet,” says Abbott. “Most of our oxygen comes from the ocean. An increasing amount of food comes from the ocean. It drives our weather and climate. It’s changing. We are seeing less sea ice in the arctic, warmer temperatures in the Gulf of Maine. The more we understand, the better we can respond and manage.” Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 266 Woods Hole Road, Woods Hole, 508-548-1400,





Suzanne Carter retired several years ago, but today she is working harder than ever. She founded Flower Angels USA in 2014, and now works seven days a week at the nonprofit 5013c organization. As the former owner of several Curves For Women fitness franchises on the Cape and a whale watch company, Carter started the organization in honor of her mother. Carter would visit her every day at a nursing home in Provincetown and realized other patients never had any visitors. She now oversees more than 100 volunteers, answers emails from brides who want to donate flowers and “spreads a whole lotta love” to patients in nursing homes and hospice care across the Cape. “Flower Angels has become a mission of love for people who have been abandoned by society,” says Carter, while standing in a room bustling with activity at their South Yarmouth location. Flower Angels receives donated flowers from Trader Joe’s, Shaw’s, brides and the Lower Cape Flower Garden, a group in

ster. Flower Angels volunteers then toss the wilted or dead ones into a compost pile and organize the flowers by color. The design team comes along and creates bouquets featuring carnations, roses, mums, berries and greens in teacups and mugs—the perfect size for a bedside table. About 250 bouquets are delivered weekly to patients who rarely—or never—see a visitor. As of last November, the organization has delivered more than 21,000 bouquets since May 2014. “We are a little bit of sunshine,” says Carter, who also works with her special-needs daughter, Mara Schusterman, at Flower Angels. “It’s a few moments of kindness.” Flower Angels USA, 851 Route 28, Unit 3, South Yarmouth, To inquire about volunteering or donating flowers, contact Suzanne Carter at 508-280-9869 or grace@





Ten years ago, musician Tad Price fell in love with the romanticism and subtle rhythms of Brazilian music. “I had faith in the music that it would seduce others like it did me,” says Price, who has played in bands around the Cape for about 25 years, including with Kami Lyle, the Rip-It-Ups and Sarah Burrill. So several years ago, he set out to form a bossa nova band. But it wasn’t until 2014 when he met Brazilian-born singer Rayssa Ribeiro during a live radio show on WOMR in Provincetown that his dream came to fruition. “Rayssa was really the key,” says Price, who says he first heard Brazilian music as a teenager when he bought Sergio Mendes and Brasil ’66. Each band member is passionate about samba and bossa nova songs, but most have day jobs: Ribeiro works in Cambridge in the bio-tech field; Price specializes in home remodeling on the Lower Cape; percussionist Michael Dunford works in banking; and Susan Goldberg plays music full-time. “My personal goal,” says Price, “is to bring people together with the music.” The band has been connecting with the local Brazilian community at the annual Brazilian Cultural Festival every September at Cotuit Center for the Arts. Clã Da Bossa Nova plays all over the Cape, including The Red Inn’s Sunday brunch in Provincetown and the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth. They also perform the first Sunday of every month at Harvest Gallery Wine Bar in Dennis. For more information about Clã Da Bossa Nova and upcoming appearances, visit or





Ken Weber is a longtime Falmouth resident who has worked in the corporate world for NStar and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. Alyssa Horton, also a Falmouth resident, started her career as a residential aide at a detox center. Their paths crossed while they were both attending a recovery program in Falmouth. When Weber, who has been sober for more than 24 years and in long-term recovery, started thinking about starting a center to help drug-dependent individuals, he reached out to Horton for her sober coaching and detox experiences. After spending a year researching treatments and various models across the country, Weber opened Recovering Champions two years ago and Horton followed. Since then, the clinic has treated more than 275 clients for addiction. Recovering Champions uses a holistic approach and offers 12-step meetings, one-onone instruction, art, music and wellness activities such as yoga and meditation. The program also encourages a healthy lifestyle by serving three organic meals a day and teaching clients how to have “sober fun” while at a wedding or party. “Addiction told me I was useless,” says Horton. “Ken is giving me an opportunity to be innovative and give our clients the best care possible to let them gain recovery and build a life [for themselves] and their families. I am pretty blessed.” In addition to its Falmouth location, Recovering Champions also has a wellness lodge in Sandwich.

PRINCIPAL, HYANNIS WEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Kathi Amato’s advice for poorly performing schools: “Don’t ever give up! Real change will take time, so it’s important to be patient.” Amato, a longtime teacher at Hyannis West, speaks from experience. When Amato stepped into the role of principal in 2011—the eighth principal at Hyannis West in six years—she faced low staff morale and declining test scores. The K-3 school also has unique demographics: 85 percent of the 360 students are on free or reduced lunch, 40 percent are English-language learners and 11 percent are homeless. Another challenge for Amato is the high transient population—150 to 200 students are entering or leaving the school every year. Despite these challenges, Amato wanted to prove she could turn things around. Over the last five years, Amato has tried a variety of approaches, mostly involving pull-out interventions. “What we found when we looked at our academic data,” says Amato, “was that pulling students out of core instruction for intervention actually widened the gaps!” But after Hyannis West implemented Chicopee’s successful push-in model (extra reading and math support from specialists inside the classroom), Amato and her staff started seeing impressive gains: The PARCC exam results from the spring of 2016 showed 57 percent of third graders as proficient or advanced (a 19 percent jump over the previous year). The state has since designated Hyannis West as a level one (or top tier) school. They also received special recognition from state education officials for narrowing achievement gaps. Amato gives full credit to her staff for the successful turnaround. “I drive the bus, but it’s the people on it that make it successful.” Hyannis West Elementary School, 549 West Main St., Hyannis, 508-790-6480,

Devil’s Purse in Dennis and Hog Island in Orleans, far right, are part of the growing craft beer movement on Cape Cod.

The owners of three craft breweries in South Dennis, Orleans, and soon, Mashpee, aim to turn our peninsula into a destination for beer lovers—everywhere.


A pint of Moonsnail. A growler of Skatemouth. A bottle of Lighthouse Blonde. Creativity in the craft beer world is flourishing here on Cape Cod. From Orleans to Mashpee and across Nantucket Sound, brewing entrepreneurs are building a dynamic cluster of small businesses they hope will make Cape Cod a true destination for craft beer lovers.

Devil’s Purse Brewing Company, South Dennis When Matt Belson and Mike Segerson decided it was time to elevate their home brewing hobby from the basement into a real facility, they knew they had much to consider. “A lot of elements had to come into play,” says Belson, which included a business plan, funding, the right zoning and available commercial property.” They settled on a building on Great Western Road in South Dennis, a town which proved very agreeable to work with. The pair spent a lot of time traveling to breweries in New England, across the country and even Germany. They spoke with brewers, met with suppliers and went to trade shows trying to fill in knowledge gaps. The pair realized that “making the beer is just a small part of running a brewing business,” says Belson, who describes their beer as European-inspired. The Brooklyn native was working as a newspaper reporter and editor when he was introduced to Segerson, a fellow Harwich resident, by their wives. Although Segerson grew up in Connecti56

cut, it was a childhood Cape Cod memory that inspired their new endeavor’s intriguing name. He recalled finding skate egg sacs on the beach and his mother telling him they were called “devil’s purses.” The two decided to continue that sea theme for their brand. The logo is encased in a shield issued to U.S. Coast Guardsmen. Their beer styles also have mariner-inspired names: Handline Kolsch, Cuddy Queen American Pale Ale and a tester line called Sea Trials. Since they opened their doors over Memorial Day weekend of 2015, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. In addition to operating the on-site tasting room, they also have their beers on tap in local restaurants and bars. Customers can purchase containers known as growlers, howlers and crowlers at Devil’s Purse headquarters, and Skywave, a limited-edition bottled provisional saison brew, can also be found in stores. Belson says they are humbled by the community support and encouraged by the incredible demand for their beer. He credits both their high-quality ingredients, including good local water (“You can’t make beer without water and Cape Cod has some great water for making beer.”) and the accessibility of the styles they create. “I like to say we offer something for everyone and all of our beers are approachable.” Belson stresses that their business is part of an important movement to build small manufacturing on Cape Cod, and the atmosphere at Devil’s Purse is lively. They’ve hosted brew runs, festivals and parties, and welcomed locals and visitors to taste year-round. Belson says that it’s a great crew of people. They are all really good friends of the brewery, he adds.




Hog Island Beer Company, Orleans In June 2016, the new owners of Jailhouse Tavern in Orleans unveiled their own brew pub, Hog Island Beer Company. “We’ve created a place where everyone can celebrate together,” says Mike McNamara, one of Hog Island’s partners. “We have a large lawn out back with picnic tables and games, so you’ll see kids running around having a good time, while their parents enjoy great food and brew. It makes for a really nice afternoon or evening.” McNamara and co-owner Mark Powers had both summered on Cape Cod and their head brewer John Kanaga grew up here. So even after an extensive career marketing wine, beer and spirits for national companies, McNamara knew that the brewery he and Powers had been envisioning for years should be located on the Cape. After buying the Jailhouse House Tavern three years ago (and dropping the word “Old” from its name) the partners first wanted to elevate the food and reinvigorate the team morale. They intended to eventually open a brewery elsewhere, but once they had spent two years rebuilding, pulling up carpets and installing a gas fireplace at the tavern, they realized its underutilized banquet room would fit the bill. They designed the space in “Cape Cod chic” with reclaimed wood, beadboard and onion lamps and brought in a 15-barrel brew system. Hog Island is a small uninhabited island in Little Pleasant Bay, owned by a family trust which allows people to explore and camp there as long as you treat it respectfully. McNamara and Powers thought the name could tie their beer to their locality and they’ve had fun with the nautical branding. They put an anchor in the logo and created a tag line of “The Outermost Brewery on Cape Cod,” an homage to the notable Henry Beston’s Cape Cod memoir.

Mike McNamara, left, and Mark Powers bought Jailhouse Tavern in Orleans three years ago and started Hog Island Beer Company last June. They intended to eventually open a brewery elsewhere, but once they had spent two years rebuilding the tavern, they realized its underutilized banquet room would fit the bill. “If the Cape could be known as a craft destination, that would be awesome,” says McNamara.

“Mark and I went on an extensive road trip to figure out what we wanted for styles and flavors,” says McNamara. “We found that there were pretty darn good beers coming out of Massachusetts. We went all over the world, but some of the best ones are brewed right here.” They have a “core four” of styles: Great White Wheat, two pale ales and the coffee-chocolate tinged Far Out Stout. Other offerings include the popular Money Head Irish Red that uses real Irish moss. They try to source local ingredients as much as possible, and the Hog Island credo is “built by locals, brewed by locals, drank by locals.” They are happy to bounce ideas off other local brewers and feel the influx of new craft beers to Cape Cod is a good thing for everyone. “If the Cape could be known as a craft destination, that would be awesome,” McNamara says. They are getting great reviews for their beer and the reception to their brewery has been fantastic. They say the best part of the business is watching people enjoy their product. “It is just such a cool thing for everyone to come together,” says McNamara. “People are pumped for what’s new.”




Pete Murner, left, and Mark Germani, two of the founders of Naukabout Beer Company, plan to build a brewery in the former Flume restaurant in Mashpee, on beautiful Lake Mashpee-Wakeby. They are planning for a late spring/early summer launch.

Naukabout Beer Company, Mashpee Bourne native Pete Murner shares the story of his friend and business partner Jeff Conley, whose dad used to come home from work and tell his sons it was time to change out of “work-abouts” and into “knock-a-bouts” and go outside their Barnstable home for some fun. This lighthearted way of reminding one to do what you love—barbecues in the backyard, seeing a concert, going fishing, relaxing at the beach—is what inspired the name of Naukabout Beer Company, a brewery that sprung from a music festival. Murner, Conley and Mark Germani created the Naukabout Music Festival in 2008 as a way to share the “naukabout” vibe and showcase local, regional and national talent at the Barnstable County Fairgrounds. Murner worked in digital marketing in Austin, Texas, and would travel back to the Cape each summer to help run the festival, until eventually the team decided to move entirely into craft brewing. We started out with a buddy who was a home brewer, says Murner,  and they used the festival to share the beer. Over the next few years, Murner and his partners grew Naukabout Beer into a fully formed beer company, constantly working toward launching a Cape-based brewery. They have been contract brewing with other companies to make their Naukabout beer recipes—American Pale Ale, White Cap IPA, Lighthouse Blonde and Nauktoberfest—on the other breweries’ equipment and having them package their product for them. But this past September, they finally purchased their own property, the former Flume restaurant in Mashpee, right on beautiful Lake Mashpee-Wakeby. The partners are busy getting the space ready. They are pulling together brewery equipment from a variety of sources and a lot of it will be custom built for the space, which will feature a tasting room. “Our goal is to get open and stay open as often as possible,” says Murner. They are planning for a late spring/early summer launch, which will include food trucks, games, pub runs and acoustic music to build a “cool atmosphere for a great time with friends and family,” he says. The owners all live on the Cape and have young families, and they are excited about the possibilities here. “What we are seeing here on the Cape are young, smart entrepreneurs following their passions,” Murner adds. “The Cape has a wonderful micro-economy of artisans—like oyster farms and local arts and crafts. All these stories and offerings are evolving and really fun to see.” Like the purveyors of Devil’s Purse and Hog Island, the Naukabout team see craft beer as one more reason for visitors to come over the bridge. They might even suggest you change into your “knock-a-bouts” first.

The Cape is now home to a number of microbreweries that offer a tasty beer route for daytrippers or part-time and full-time residents. You can start on the Upper or Lower Cape and eventually make your way over to the islands. Check websites for information on tastings, special events and tours.

Spools of colorful thread at Tuff Kookooshka are used in the creation of the brand’s vibrant apparel.






Anastassia and Brian Gonye in their new retail space for Tuff Kookooshka in Cataumet. The couple created the children’s clothing company out of their Falmouth home in 1999.




Anastassia at work in her Cataumet studio space, where she spends time working on new designs. She learned to sew at a young age taught by her mother, a textile artist and the master of embroidery for the Russian Olympic figure skating team, and her grandmother, a costume designer for theater and opera houses in Russia.


n the second-floor loft of Tuff Kookooshka’s new Cataumet retail space, owner Anastassia Gonye is working on a new design. She’s stylish and cool with wavy blond hair and bright blue eyes and very matter-of-fact as



she explains the shark-shaped SeaCozy that’s draped over the tables. She’s making the sleepsack wider to make room for growing feet. Next to her workspace, shelves are stuffed with fabrics and beside them lean bolts of corduroy, cotton and denim, waiting for her to experiment with later. “At first, I thought there was so much competition with cottons. People can go anywhere for them, but I made a few pieces and I learned people were actually waiting for it from me,” she laughs. “So I am going to do a little bit of cotton. I’ve also never done denim, but I am going to try.” Anastassia started Tuff Kookooshka with her husband, Brian Gonye, out of their Falmouth home in 1999. Eighteen years later, the Gonyes sell to stores and boutiques across the United States, Canada and Japan, and operate a production space in Fall River. Last year, the couple opened up their first retail location off County Road in Cataumet next to Cataumet Coffee House and Courtyard Restaurant. Experimentation and steady progress, Anastassia says, have been the keys to her business’ success. “Every year, I introduce new things to people. I never repeat, I always have fresh ideas and colors. Customers will find something similar and it’s always the same quality, but it’s never the exact same product,” explains Anastassia. “It’s like illustrating a book; it’s the same character, but it’s moving in different directions and finds itself in different scenarios.” Each piece of clothing she creates could be plucked from the pages of a fairy tale—a winter hat with furry ears and the face of a friendly bear, a fleece with

a layered flower appliqué and a pointed elf hood. “I want children to feel like they are playing dress up without actually dressing up,” says Anastassia. All of Tuff Kookooshka’s clothing is made in the United States using locally manufactured fabrics, and all of the appliqués are designed by Anastassia. She pulls out her recent designs: foxes on jackets, owl hats, and scarves with a smiling cat on one end and faux fur tail on the other. Each design is bright, vibrant and simple, but is the result of many drafts. “There’s a lot of trial and error. I spend a whole day just moving pieces around,” says Anastassia. “It looks effortless and easy, but even the simplest garment, you need the right material and it needs to drape right. You can have the best idea, but it has to be functional and comfortable.”

To understand Anastassia’s passion, consider her greatest childhood influences: Her grandmother was a costume designer for theater and opera houses in Russia, and her mother was a textile artist and the master of embroidery for the Russian Olympic figure skating team. Anastassia often fell asleep to the rhythmic click of her mother’s Singer sewing machine, and all around her home were jars of sequins and works-in-progress. After an education in fine art and folklore, she established herself as a women’s fashion designer in Moscow, designing dresses and outerwear. Years later, after meeting Brian, who was working as a photographer in Moscow, and having their son, the couple traveled to Falmouth—Brian’s hometown—for his brother’s wedding. They spent the summer, then a few more months, and settled into the

coastal town. “We came from this dirty city with this sweet baby to here, where there was fresh air, ocean, grass,” she says. “I wanted to go back home to Russia, but we couldn’t be so selfish and deny our son better opportunities.” The couple resettled and reset. “I started working at the restaurants and tried to figure out how to get back on my horse and it took some time,” says Anastassia. At night, she satisfied her passion for designing and sewing, initially repurposing vintage clothing, and later by taking trips to Malden Mills’ PolarTech’s factory in Lawrence, where she and Brian would collect discarded pieces of fleece for a dollar of pound. Instead of recreating her business in Moscow, she decided with a toddler model crawling around her feet, fewer materials available to her, and her love of whimsical creations, it made sense to make children’s clothing. Fleece hats came first. After many church fairs and craft shows and a few displays around Falmouth, including one at Cape Cod Bagel that gar66


nered attention, a sales representative put Tuff Kookooshka out to bigger retailers. Soon, larger orders began coming in, and Anastassia left her waitressing job and launched into sewing and designing full time. “It was a scary jump to go from a stable income to something that you don’t really know, but the restaurant I worked at closed and this opportunity came along and I thought, ‘OK, this is it—I guess I have to just go and explore this thing,’” she says. When Tuff Kookooshka outgrew the Gonye’s sunroom and kitchen table, they hired additional seamstresses and opened a space in Fall River. In the last year, the couple decided they needed a studio closer to home. When the Cataumet space became available, they realized it could also function as a retail space. “It gave us the opportunity to have a studio and also to be part of the community again and service the people who helped me when I was just starting,” says Anastassia.





Much of the company’s history can be found in small pieces around the store like this base of a Singer sewing machine, the kind of machine Anastassia learned to sew on. The name of the clothing line, Tuff Kookooshka, means “Little Cuckoo Bird”— a nickname Anastassia’s Babushka called her. About eight years ago, they re-branded the company from Tuff Cookie to Tuff Kookooshka after their registered trademark was challenged. Many people and companies still refer to them as Tuff Cookie, but “Tuff Kookooshka is more reflective of who we are and what we do,” says Anastassia.

Standing in their latest endeavor—a storefront (something they’ve never done before), Brian and Anastassia piece together the story of their 18-year journey chasing a passion. Fragments of their story are everywhere in the store: antique Singer sewing machines serve as the base of clothing racks, and in her studio, paintings of her grandmother’s costume designs hang for inspiration. Some parts of their story have become blurry over time and the couple takes turns inserting memories, stitching together their chronology. But timelines are retrospective and easy to recount, the hard parts are the leaps in the dark, the constant experiments, the day-to-day redesigns, and the uncertainty of a 68


life spent pursuing a passion. “This is the thing I know how to do the best, and I love doing it,” says Anastassia. “It’s this constant experiment. You don’t know how people are going to react, what people are going to love, what is going to work and what won’t. It’s fun, but it’s scary, too. Our numbers every year are different, but being able to create a garment and send it out into the world and see kids wearing it—it’s rewarding.” Tuff Kookooshka, 1337 County Road, Cataumet, 508-468-9809,

‘Better Path to Wellness’


It’s no surprise that Brian and Coree Aussant’s new food and wellness venture is named Karma, since it’s fate that brought them to Brewster. Transplants from Northampton, Massachusetts, where they owned a bigger venture also called Karma, the couple is filling a void in the community for a one-stop resource for wellness. Not only do they offer sustainable, health-driven food and drink, but also yoga, meditation, massage and general information about a lifestyle that they themselves embrace. “A lot of people on Cape Cod are looking for a better path to wellness,” says Brian, who went to school to be a vegan chef and, with Coree, a Kundalini Yoga instructor, cultivates a robust backyard vegetable garden. A popular menu item is the Burger Bowl—a rice and quinoa-based burger that’s seared nice and crispy just like the “real” thing. When not in the wellness studio, Coree works magic with gluten-free and vegan baked goods that defy the dry-and-crumbly stigma. Karma’s goal? Serve food that doesn’t taste gluten-free and offer exercise that doesn’t feel like work. Sounds like nirvana to me. —Janice Randall Rohlf 2628 Main St., Brewster, 508-896-8805 (food) or 508-896-8800 (wellness),





Industry Ale House Puts Quality First Sandwich restaurant offers mouth-watering burgers and a rotating menu of 20 craft beers BY LANNAN M. O’BRIEN


Industry burger topped with Vermont cheddar and fried leeks


79 Route 130 Sandwich 774-361-6851 industryalehouse. com




earned degrees from the Culinary Institute of America, Laman entered the food industry later in life. It wasn’t until after studying at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee as a classically trained trumpet player that he began working in restaurants and discovered an interest in the culinary arts. Beer has long been a hobby of Laman’s, though, as evidenced by the restaurant’s name and unique selection on tap. (There is intentionally no bottled beer on the menu.) After taking in the atmosphere of the dining room, many customers tell Laman that they’re reminded of a German beer hall. The wide-open space is partially lit by lightbulbs hanging from pipes in the ceiling, its walls adorned with small bulletin boards of blackand-white photos. Oriental rugs and a tan leather booth lining one wall warm up the space.


new Sandwich restaurant has garnered the approval of local foodies and beer lovers, some who visit on a frequent basis to find a seat at the bar. The rotating draft menu of 20 lesser-known craft beers is sure to impress, but it’s only part of the restaurant’s appeal. Open since June, Industry Ale House already “seems to be the place that the beer snobs come,” says Darryl Laman, who coowns the restaurant with Jason Thomas and Chad Earnest. He hopes it’s also becoming a destination for high-quality food. Unlike owners Thomas and Earnest, who both

The owners’ goal was to make the inside of the building as different as possible from the businesses previously there, says Laman. Located on Route 130 in Forestdale, the space has changed hands several times over the years and most recently housed a Thai and Vietnamese restaurant called Taste of Asia. The new owners, however, are not intimidated by the building’s past. “The look and feel of it is what we’ve changed, and the quality of the food,” says Laman, who can be found most days in the kitchen. He is proud to say that just about everything on the menu is made from scratch, down to the salad dressing. “The pork belly, turkey, everything—we smoke it all here.” The burgers are made using a custom blend of beef from a Brockton-based meat company. The result is a thick, juicy patty tucked in a brioche roll that we can describe only as mouth-watering perfection. You can’t go wrong with the namesake Industry Burger, topped with Vermont cheddar, fried leeks, shallots and truffle oil. To our fellow burger connoisseurs, we promise that your expectations will be exceeded. Asked about the local response to the business, Laman says that the alehouse has attracted a neighborhood following, and some area residents are dropping in regularly. Gesturing toward the bar, he says, “Some of them are actually here now.”

First Crush Winery Generates Buzz If you dine at some of Cape Cod’s favorite restaurants—Alberto’s Ristorante, Scargo Café, the Naked Oyster—you might have noticed a new local name creeping onto the wine lists: First Crush Winery. Located in Harwich, the winery began operations in 2013 and started selling its first vintage last year. Combining grapes from California with an expertise cultivated through more than three decades of amateur winemaking, owner Frank Puzio has started to generate some real buzz. First Crush may be achieving industry success these days, but its origins are decidedly homespun. Founder Frank Puzio grew up watching his grandfather making his own wine and became fascinated by the process. Then Puzio himself took up the hobby. Friends and family liked his product and wanted in on the fun, so they would join Puzio at his Yarmouthport home and pitch in.

“We called this ragtag group ‘the cooperative,’” says Puzio. The spirit lives on today; nearly half of First Crush’s wine is sold at a discount to co-op members who participate in the wine-making process.—Sarah Shemkus First Crush Winery, 527 Main St., Harwich, 508-737-6867,

On the mainland, which is a three-minute boat ride across The Narrows, two small parcels host a licensed dock, boat ramp and parking area, which convey with the island. The island may be purchased and enjoyed as a whole, while retaining the ability to sell parcels in the future. Sipson Island is less than 90 miles and a two-hour drive from Boston, and a short distance to regional Cape Cod airports in Hyannis, Chatham and Provincetown. The five-star Wequassett Resort and Golf Club and the famed Eastward Ho! Golf Course are visible and a short boat ride from the island. Offering extraordinary privacy, views, acreage and development options, Sipson Island presents an unparalleled opportunity to own and create a legacy estate for future generations.
