July 2015

Sadly, Siren had only one season. After 2015, Siren closed its doors. Now Down Island, a fine dining restaurant, occupies the space. According to Wikipedia, sirens (Greek mythology) “were dangerous yet beautiful creatures, who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.” In Oak Bluffs, Siren […]

Year after year, the Possible Dreams Auction raises money and awareness for Martha’s Vineyard Community Services. If you don’t know, this organization helps over 6,000 people on the Island, from Veteran services to mental health services to child programs, to help with addiction and more. It truly is the “Island’s Helping Hand.” I myself am involved […]

There may be no place finer on Martha’s Vineyard to gather with friends and colleagues on a summer evening, than the Chappy Beach Club. Sitting directly on the beachy shoreline of Edgartown Harbor on the Chappy side, the private club is easy to spot from the Edgartown Village side, with its distinctive red, white, and blue, pointed beach […]

That’s what Cook the Vineyard offers, a chance to meet and learn more about […]

The Summer is full of events that support our wonderful Island non-profits. Most of the events are geared toward a certain age group, but not the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust Generations Picnic. This event is literally for the generations, from baby to great grandparents. This is a family fun event. On a gorgeous Friday night in July, you’ll […]

*Oak Bluffs Fish Market opening postponed to 2016. With July in full swing, it’s nice to know that soon I will not have to travel to Vineyard Haven or Edgartown to pick up some fresh fish for dinner. Oak Bluffs Fish Market is opening later this month which is pretty exciting for all of us […]

Last year, I missed the Martha’s Vineyard Sound – Indie Music Festival, but am determined to not make the same mistake again. So, I thought it would be a good idea to meet with the music festival’s producer, Phil DaRosa to find out more about this event that’s full of local and national musical guests. […]

No matter what the season, I love Italian food. And, I love that you can get really good Italian food in Vineyard Haven at La Soffitta. La Soffitta, which means “the attic,” can be found in the space that used to be home to Le Grenier. Though both names mean the attic, the restaurants could not […]

If you’re like me, you might not have known that Chappy has a golf course, but it does. The Royal and Ancient Chappaquiddick Links actually dates back to 1887. Quite the history, yet it has remained a hidden gem on the little island. Brad Woodger, whose family has owned the course for 120 years, met me at […]
