January 2015

In late September 2014, James Goff and partner Tanya Chipperfield, began a new chapter at Bob’s Pizza & Subs on Main Street in Vineyard Haven. After cleaning and rearranging the kitchen to suit their needs, Bob’s relaunched on October 9th. Things started slowly, but soon, from word-of-mouth, Bob’s was packing them in, especially at lunch!

He was the sommelier who represented the Vineyard in the Sommelier Throw-Down along with wine maker Joseph Carr and wine expert, Mark Fine. It was at that event that I first […]

The park is getting a complete renovation, and is being funded by […]

Though many places have closed their doors for a Winter break, there is one place that thrives during the off-season on Martha’s Vineyard, The Food Truck. If you’ve driven by the Chilmark General Store recently between the hours of 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., you’ve probably seen the Cook Truck, and wondered to yourself is that […]

It’s hard to believe it’s 2015. I feel like I just got used to writing 2014 on things, and I feel like the year went by way too fast. There was so much more I wanted to do, but it’s nice to take a moment and celebrate some of the fun I had with writing […]
