About The Lights. Camera. Cabot 100 Celebration

Honoring Our Past, Looking To Our Future
To pay tribute to our 100th year, we would be remiss if we didn’t recognize the 5 amazing people who brought The Cabot back to life in 2014 after being closed for several years. Our founders: Henry Bertolon, Bill Howard, Rich Marino, Thad Siemasko, and Paul Van Ness will be celebrated in style!

Join us as we show some love to these community leaders and friends. Imagine what downtown Beverly would be like if they didn’t save a part of our shared history.

It Wouldn’t Be a Cabot Party Without Music!

The Lights. Camera. Cabot 100 Celebration will feature a mix of nationally known musicians, some performing on The Cabot stage to ring in our 100th year! We have developed an exciting program where each entertainer will perform 1-2 songs, from a variety of genres, that will celebrate the diversity in the arts that The Cabot provides to our community.

Marino Mule
The Marino Mule, served in a bold copper mug, adds some cranberry flair to the classic Moscow Mule and is named after Cabot founder, Rich Marino. As we head into winter, the Marino Mule is sure to give you a little clarity during these crazy times. Super chill, like Rich himself, this drink hits all the right notes: you can add vodka for the bitter bite, ginger beer (or ginger ale) for a sweet snap, and lime to round out the ensemble. 

Raise your mug to Rich and The Cabot founders as we toast them on December 3, 2020!

Hurricane Henry
The Hurricane is not a cocktail for the faint of heart and has been packing a punch since the 1940s when it was invented. Think high-energy, high-octane blackberry pom fruit bomb and you can see why we named this drink after founder, Henry Bertolon. The Hurricane Henry packs a punch – in the best way possible!

Howard Wallbanger
The Howard Wallbanger is our take on the Harvey Wallbanger, a cocktail that was a hit in the 1970s, much like our esteemed founder, Bill Howard. With a hint of vanilla bean, this buttoned-down classic drink offers a sweet surprise. Relive the golden days of disco – though Bill promises he never wore a white disco suit!

Pink Thadillac Spicy Margarita
Cadillacs are known for their smooth as silk ride quality and a pink Cadillac is just plain fun, like founder Thad Siemasko. Our version of a summer classic, the Pink Thadillac Spicy Margarita, will keep you warm as the nights get colder. The spice in this drink can’t hide the sweet undertones and you can’t either, Thad!

MayPaul Vanhattan
Smoky maple (MayPaul, get it?) syrup gives this truly classic cocktail, the Manhattan, a New England twist! No matter how you mix up your MayPaul Vanhattan, named for founder Paul Van Ness, you will find that it’s an ideal drink for any occasion. It’s perfect for a Zoom party, a casual night with friends, or if you want to curl up indoors and watch a good film.

Cabot 100 Hot Chocolate
Classic doesn’t have to mean boring! Just in time for winter, who doesn’t love a hot mug of warm goodness. Keep it chocolatey and simple or add your favorite liquor or spice to add a kick, and this drink is sure to please and be around for a long time.
