Changes On The Vineyard

For the first time since 1960, a Hy-Line passenger ferry docked at Memorial Wharf in Edgartown on Tuesday, March 7th. A number of Edgartown Board of Trade members, Winnetu Oceanside Resort employees, and media folks, boarded the Grey Lady in Oak Bluffs to make the very special journey to Memorial Wharf. Why? Well, Hy-Line had […]

If you look up larder on Wikipedia, you’ll find that it is “a cool area for storing food prior to use.” Interestingly enough, The Larder on State Road in Vineyard Haven offers just that, with a twist. The Larder is a collaboration between Jefferson Munroe, from the Good Farm, and Daniele Barrick, from Scottish Bakehouse, and […]

And our annual holiday fundraiser is helping make a difference. The Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club serves over 100 elementary school aged children, from […]

One of the joys of the holiday season on Martha’s Vineyard is walking down the main streets of our towns, well three out of six. With holiday lights sparkling and many buildings adorned in festive attire, it’s almost reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting. When I saw the sign for the Rosewater Holiday Pop-Up Shop, […]

With a soft opening last week, Tin Hanger, where Flatbread once was, is now open for business, daily for dinner. A brave endeavor to open a restaurant in November one would think, but not for this Island family. Jack McGroarty is no stranger to businesses on Martha’s Vineyard. His family owned The Wharf in Edgartown, and […]

When you’re in Oak Bluffs, one of the best, and one of the few places to get coffee is Mocha Mott’s. Last winter, when it closed for renovations, many of us were devastated. Then when it never reopened because of pipes bursting in the space above it (basically destroying the newly renovated Mocha Mott’s), people […]

A couple of years ago, my friend Nicole Cabot told me her daughter, Violet, was part of a group, from the West Tisbury School, called Straw Free MV. Straw Free MV is working to make a change on the Island by eliminating straw use. Fast forward to last week, when I noticed a Straw Free MV […]

Walk up the stairs to La Soffitta restaurant in Vineyard Haven, and you’re immediately in a space that is both cozy and sophisticated. Whether you sit in the dining room, enjoy a glass of wine in the lounge area or sit at the bar (my favorite spot here), you’re going to be amazed by the experience. […]

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. It’s going to start out small and only on Saturdays initially but as popularity grows, I bet the availability will too. Why breakfast at Sharky’s? […]
