Explore the Retro Work of Gary Destramp

Gary Destramp draws places we remember. His Old Town Hall (above) captures the iconic stature of this Andover landmark. And his Brown’s Seafood (below) evokes happy summer memories. You can purchase Gary’s work on his Etsy page. And you can visit his Western Avenue Studio during scheduled Open Studio hours. You can also ask your favorite local shops if they carry Gary’s work.

Enjoy a Craft Cocktail at Bueno Malo

Locals love the fresh, Southern-California-style Mexican cuisine at Bueno Malo. With menu options like Chipotle Maple Wings, Kickin’ Grilled Shrimp, and their house favorite Guacamole — what’s not to love.

Owners Mike and Franco offer a super-friendly vibe in their soon-to-expand restaurant (stay tuned for more on that). And the eatery has plenty of outdoor dining in their Andover Village Square courtyard. Just perfect for an August summer night!

And delicious Craft Cocktails are plentiful.  The bar boasts 80-plus types of tequila. So be sure to try the Bueno Malo Margarita — Tequila, Grapefruit, Mexican Soda, Lemon, Lime,  and Agave. Salt optional. Served with an edible orchid adorning your glass.
