Gilley's PM Lunch

One of the staples of the Portsmouth dining scene is the little dining cart known as Gilley’s.  It’s easily recognized as the best place for greasy and delicious late night food, and the charm of the interior is unbelievable and authentic.  Stepping inside is like being transported back in time.  My favorite parts were the old school stools and the galley style setup of the whole place.

NHFF :: New Hampshire Film Festival

Portsmouth is the home of the 2009 New Hampshire Film Festival (additional details here:  www.nhfilmfestival.com), which takes place October 15th-18th.

The annual festival is a great addition to the cultural offerings in the city – I’m hoping to make it to a few of my first films this year.  Visit their website for more information on the films that were selected to be featured in this year’s festival along with schedules.  Films are going to be screened at various venues throughout the city, with The Music Hall serving as the focal point of the weekend.

Check out one of the marketing posters for the event hanging in the city (near Gilley’s on Fleet Street), next to a very Don Draper ad for office space at the International Office Suites in a nod to Mad Men (probably the only show I won’t miss).

Gilley’s is one of the true institutions among Portsmouth eateries.  It was recently deemed the best place for late night food by The Beer Drinking Report, and was awarded the Phantom Gourmet’s Hidden Jewel.  This shot was taken from the top floor of the City’s High/Hanover St. parking garage.
