How much do I love cheese! How much do I love beer! Put together two incredible, special Island made ones, Grey Barn cheese and Offshore Ale beer, and you’ve got a spectacular pair. Put away those thoughts of wine and cheese, this event shows just how good beer and cheese can be together. Joe Alstat, […]

It’s a Tuesday night in February and I can’t find a parking spot a The Barn!?! How can this be? Well, when I walked, I knew why. The smell immediately made me hungry. The smell of curry, of exotic spices, Indian food. The dining room was packed and I have to say that 90% of […]

I was so excited to get the email from the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce about the Martha’s Vineyard Made 1st Island Trade Show – the first of many I bet. Founded by Heidi Feldman (Martha’s Vineyard Sea Salt) and Rachel Baumrin (Austin Designs), this trade show, held at the Chamber of Commerce in Vineyard […]

When I lived in Philadelphia, you would go to the cobbler – if your shoe broke, had a handbag that needed some TLC, etc. Moving here, it took me a while to figure out that there was a cobbler on the Island. Yesterday, I broke the tab on a pair of my favorite ankle booties. Such […]

Ah brunch, just saying the word makes me smile and think of the weekend and food with friends. Guess what Oak Bluffs’ restaurant has added brunch to its menu – yes, the Ocean View. There are many things that make this brunch a little different from some other brunches on the Island. First of all, […]

Molto Bene – very good, is definitely how I would describe the food at La Soffitta in Vineyard Haven, and now in its third year, I would say this Italian restaurant has found its boschetto (groove). When you walk in, you almost forget that what the space looked like when it was Le Grenier, which is […]

The joy of four day weekends in January on the Island. Having just travelled for a week for the holidays, and getting ready to travel for Winter break, I was feeling less than motivated to pack up the kids and head off Island. I do, however, like to feel like I went away or did […]
