Last Wednesday night while working at Offshore Ale, I noticed two men outside the door working on something.  Curious of course, I had to investigate.  It was two dads putting a scarecrow up.  I had to laugh, watching them stuff a dress with hay, and position a carved pumpkin as the head.  I laughed even […]

With an intimate opening party Friday night, the first dinner service on Saturday, and now as of Sunday, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, almost every day of the week (open Tuesday – Sunday).  A welcomed addition to Edgartown, this warm, cozy restaurant is sure to be a success.

Paint & Champagne with Traeger DiPietro, part of the five day Art*Island Festival did not disappoint. It was one of the most fun and rewarding events I have gone to in awhile. Picture the scene, a sold out crowd, sitting in Water Street Restaurant at the Harbor View Hotel. Traeger in the front of the […]

I sometimes think that I don’t do enough things that involve culture.  I don’t visit museums as much anymore.  I don’t visit art galleries as often as I like.  I’m too busy just trying to survive the week trying to add a sprinkle of fun with family and friends here and there.  So imagine how […]

Pecha what?  Pecha Kucha, a clever way to share images and a story to people.  Whether the person is a designer, a writer, a painter, a historian, a sculptor, they can use Pecha Kucha.  The concept is this — 20 images shown for 20 seconds each.  This way, no one gets bored, there’s no lag […]

One of the best things about living on the Island is that there are a lot of really interesting people here.  You never know when you’re going to meet someone who is doing something amazing. For example, when I went to the Martha’s Vineyard Local Wild Food Challenge, I met one of the homecooks, John […]

I’m sure many of you have driven down upper Main Street in Edgartown, and did a double take at Lucky Hank’s.  It seemed to pop up over night.  Because the building was once a house, I think people were surprised to see it become a restaurant. Lucky Hank’s is the “baby” of Island restaurateur Doug […]

So, last week I wrote about the up-coming 3rd Annual MV Local Wild Food Challenge, and I have to admit that I was pretty excited to go to the event for a number of reasons, the location, the food, and of course the people.  Who would prepare what and what would be the wildest ingredient […]

It’s time for the 3rd Annual Local Wild Food Challenge! What is this you may wonder?  Well, I really did not know, but wanted to find out.  I had no idea what to expect when I was meeting the event founder Chef Bill Manson.  Was he going to be a burly hunter, a salty fisherman, […]
