People always wonder what we do on Martha’s Vineyard during the Winter months.  Well, I can tell you that on Sunday nights, we have burgers!  Since 2007, the Brick Cellar at Atria, on Main Street in Edgartown has been doing two-for-one burgers on Sunday nights, and let me tell you — this is a scene. Soon […]

You know what they say about the weather in New England, and today saw one of those winter-in-New-England days. There was a pretty good coastal snow storm, dumping six to eight inches across various parts of Martha’s Vineyard. There was a lot of snow but by mid-morning, the streets, like North Water in Edgartown, were […]

We knew that this year’s Teddy Bear Suite was something special.  I don’t know if it was the new hotel room — or I should say actual suite — at the Harbor View Hotel, or the new mascot, Chappy, or the commemorative bears, but our second year shattered my expectations! The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear […]

Finally, on a cold January night, I made my way to one of Edgartown’s newest additions to the restaurant scene, Eleven North.  I had not been there since my sneak peak inside before it opened.  Excited to go, I decided it was reason enough to don a little extra make-up and some fun earrings. Long […]

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Waterside Market’s sister restaurant in Falmouth, Parkside Restaurant.  Cleverly named since it is across the street from the park on Main Street in Falmouth.  This great new addition to the Falmouth dining scene is open for business.  Offering the perfect place to grab breakfast or lunch, Parkside […]
