October 17, 2015
From what I’ve heard, Provincetown is like the Brighton of Massachusetts. All year round, it’s pride time and there’s no stopping the rainbow flags, the day time drag queens, or the proud flamboyance. However, despite the progressive liberal take, it’s still Cape Cod, and that means one thing. You’re having fish for dinner. You’re a vegan, yeah, we don’t care, you’re eating fish.
