Martha’s Vineyard Chowder Company

Sundays are usually quiet for restaurants this time of year. Not the case at the Martha’s Vineyard Chowder Company (ChoCo). It’s busy. Why? Sunday Bloody Sunday, where you’ll find The Classic burger is only $4 from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., then $5 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. How crazy is that? It’s a […]

If somebody else told […]

On the Vineyard, there are a number of  people who just continue to amaze me.  Whether it’s in their charitable works, their commitment to a cause, or their successful business, they just “wow” you.  I think that JB Blau is one of those people.  When I was thinking about what I wanted to write about for On […]

Some years it seems as though time stands still on Martha’s Vineyard, but not this year!  After blogging about the restaurant, store, and business changes going on in Vineyard Haven, people started talking to me about what’s happening in Oak Bluffs too.  As an OB resident, I cannot tell you how happy I am to see […]
