July 2013

Yes, it is true.  There is a new beer on the shores of Martha’s Vineyard, Bad Martha.  What you might say? I don’t know of any new brewery on the Island. Well, since we do live in a fragile environment, the beer is actually brewed and bottled in Ipswitch, MA.  However, there really is a […]


Seeing spots lately? Perhaps that’s because the of the store Slip Seventy Seven located by the Oak Bluffs Harbor.  In the building that once housed a salon and then Old Harbor Outfitters, you’ll find Slip Seventy Seven.  This chic, trend-setting store is in its second season and more popular than ever. Meet Christina Izzo and Jessica Lyon, […]


Sometimes a girl likes to mix it up for lunch.  I get stuck in the three-town rut.  So on a sunny, hot Summer day, why not take a trip up to Aquinnah, and see what’s going on for lunch at the other end of the Island. After maneuvering past the bikers, I found a great […]


Each Summer, I love seeing what new places open in each of the towns.  Of course living in Oak Bluffs, I am always hopeful of some great new spots, and this year there are a couple. If you’ve walked down Circuit Avenue this Summer, you’ve probably noticed a few new shops and restaurants.  Let’s start […]


For the last couple of years, people have been telling me that I had to experience Trio at Black Sheep on North Summer Street in Edgartown.  Finally, I made it a point to schedule a girl’s night with my friend Dailyn, and see what all the buzz was about. From Gourmet Shop to Chic Cafe The Black […]


Many people may not know this, but I am not the most “outdoorsy” person, which is somewhat sad, since I live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.  So, for Summer 2013, I have been making a conscious effort to get out and do more, and take advantage of the Island. I […]


When walking down Main Street in Vineyard Haven, you will most likely come across a small store named AquaNaut.  In the windows, there are scrimshaw items and watches.  Yes, the scrimshaw is nice, but it’s the watches that caught my eye.  And of course there is a story behind them. Meet Rubin Douglas Cronig, yes […]


Many of us have traditions for the fourth of July holiday.  For some, it’s a family BBQ, for others it’s a parade. I know I love the Edgartown July 4th parade, but whatever it is, it’s what makes the holiday such a special part of the Summer. Luckily for us, we happen to be on […]


Walking down Circuit Avenue in Oak Bluffs, you will definitely notice Fat Ronnie’s MV Burger bar.  First of all, the space is white and modern and inviting.  Not that the idea of a burger bar isn’t seductive enough, but seriously, the space is wonderful.  So clean and crisp and different from any other small place to […]
