Not that long ago, they had to chance to open a second Wolf’s Den, where Island Pizza was currently in Edgartown, next to Your Market. Before the call from then owner Lisa Brown Huff, James and Tanya were […]

JB and his team are always cooking up something new to keep our interest piqued. After Columbus Day, you’ll be able to get breakfast at Sharky’s in Edgartown. Yes, Sharky’s.
