Changes On The Vineyard

One of the amazing things about living in a small community is the fact that if you want something to happen, you can usually make it so. My friend Karen Bruno Giannakopoulos is a mover and a shaker.

Once a dive bar always a dive bar. The Ritz is getting back to its roots. Not fancy, not a BBQ joint, just a little bar with good food and drinks and a colorful clientele. Over the the last couple years, The Ritz has been on a journey sort of, trying out new things, learning […]

It was always fun to stop by the Katama General Store on the way to South Beach during the Summer months. Grab a bite to eat, maybe something to drink, and then on you went. However, now I feel like the Katama General Store is a destination, and I am kind of in love. Owners […]

I am not quite sure why, but when you walk up to 19 Raw Oyster Bar, you feel like you’re in for a fun time. Perhaps because it is a bar and is small and intimate. The set-up pretty much guarantees that you’re going to accidentally bump into friends there or make new ones. Chef/Owner, […]

  It has happened. The signs are obvious, smoke rising from the smoker at 7 Oakland Avenue, Oak Bluffs, once again after years of nothing. The smell taunting you as you walk or drive by. Sea Smoke Barbecue is now open. Open daily at 5:00 p.m., Sea Smoke features slow wood smoked BBQ, and of course […]
