Each room is unique and furnished with antiques collected over the years by the owner, Peter. In addition, the Yellow Monkey offers a clothing-optional hot tub and sundeck. The town has many restaurants serving excellent food, unique shops, and several gay bars. A movie theatre is also located in the center of town. The beautiful ocean and beach are just a short walk from the Yellow Monkey and the beach has a gay section. The Marginal Way is a 1½ mile walk along the ocean, with breathtaking views, connecting Ogunquit with Perkins Cove, where you will find more restaurants, shops and boating adventures.

A continental breakfast is available each morning at no additional cost in the kitchen/dining room located in a separate building behind Tara House.

We are planning a Friday evening Happy Hour at Briar Cottage at 5:00 PM with snacks and non-alcoholic beverages provided (for which there will be a charge of $5 per person). The charge for the Happy Hour should be added to your room charge and paid at the time you send in your room check or money order (or pay via cash or card at April’s meeting).

Make your reservations early to ensure your personal preferences. Since all rooms are unique and vary in price, please indicate your first and second choice on the tear-sheet. Rooms will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. When submitting your reservation, please include a check/money order for your first choice. If it cannot be accommodated, you will be contacted about a refund or additional charge for another room. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preference.

This year, because we are in Ogunquit for the weekend following Memorial Day, the Ogunquit Playhouse will be open for the summer season. The musical that week will be Smokey Joe’s Café, with a lot of familiar hits of our day! Friday offers an 8:00 PM show, on Saturday there are shows at 2:30 PM and 8:00 PM, and on Sunday there is a show at 2:30 PM. Tickets range in price from $52-$120 depending on day, show and section. If you are interested in tickets, you can call the theatre directly at (207) 646-5511, e-mail them at boxoffice@ogunquitplayhouse.org or purchase tickets online at their website. You can also call Norman Pelletier at (978) 475-5504 for assistance with the Playhouse.

All requests for rooms must be received by our Office no later than Friday, May 18th, in order to allow the Yellow Monkey to sell rooms that are not reserved by us.

If you have any questions, please contact Harry Fullerton at (857) 544-3630 or everharry@aol.com.

See you in OGUNQUIT!!!

Speak Easy Production , “Every Brilliant Thing”

I am trying to organize a group to see Every Brilliant Thing, a Speak Easy Production, on Thursday March 29th, at 2 PM. I am able to obtain a community discount of 10 tickets at $20 each. This will be performed at the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts, 527 Tremont St. in the South End.

The first ten people to RSVP via the Tear Sheet will receive the discount. I will notify you when I receive the tickets. The deadline is March 15th. Last month, three members attended Shakespeare in Love. I hope that more members would like to join us for an afternoon of fun at the theater.

To quote their website:

1. Ice cream 2. Water fights 3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV. These are just a few items on a list of things worth living for compiled by a young girl trying to ease her mother’s depression at the start of the charming and miraculous new play EVERY BRILLIANT THING. Through adulthood, as the list grows, she learns the deep significance the list has on her own life, as she goes to college, falls in love, and builds a home. A tribute to the irrepressible resilience inside all of us and the capacity to find delight in the everyday, EVERY BRILLIANT THING is a very funny and moving new play that enlists members of the audience to help tell its story.

RUN TIME: Approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes with no intermission.

For more information, view Speak Easy’s website.
