Changes On The Vineyard

This is an interesting story for me to write. I have worked at Offshore Ale since 2005, which dates back to even before Phil and Colleen McAndrews bought it. So much has changed with them becoming owners, and I think they are part of the reason I have been committed for so long. The staff […]

Last week I brought you the story about Chef Joe Monteiro moving and re-opening Pizza di Napoli at the Loft in Oak Bluffs. This week, I am very pleased to tell you that Joe is also opening an oyster bar. Yes, an oyster bar in Edgartown no less! Hard to believe we don’t have one yet. Joe […]

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?

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 […]
