Vineyard Haven

I have always been confused, even slightly annoyed about the name of Vineyard Haven/Tisbury, but thanks to the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce’s Sample MV Vineyard Haven, I now know the deal. It turns out that Tisbury is the town, and Vineyard Haven is a village of Tisbury and, West Chop is one too. I love […]

Now I am not necessary a buffet fan, but there are those instances that change your mind. I recently discovered one — the buffet on Sunday nights at Copper Wok. For lunch and dinner, Copper Wok offers an all you can eat Chinese Buffet, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., for $10.99, and from 4:00 p.m. to […]

Sometimes it’s nice to have a little something to do after the beach and before dinner on a Saturday, during the Summer months on Martha’s Vineyard. The Saturday Stroll is the perfect activity. On Saturdays, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. thru Columbus Day, Main Street in Vineyard Haven is a great place to be. […]

On Martha’s Vineyard we may not have drive-thrus but we do have food trucks. And, some of these trucks have some of the best eats on the Island. When I saw two new trucks this season, I thought it was time to do a little research, which basically gives me a reason to eat something […]

Meet Rubin Douglas Cronig, yes […]

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Scott Mullin told me I had to try these amazing baked doughnuts at the Scottish Bakehouse in Vineyard Haven.  Being a doughnut enthusiast and never having one that was baked, it was my mission to get one. I failed at my first attempt.  I arrived at the Scottish Bakehouse […]

Having the Oscars, the movie industry’s premier award show, at the end of February is just plain genius.  For those of us enjoying a long, cold New England Winter, it provides a welcome reason for a party.  Luckily, the Martha’s Vineyard Film Society hosted a grand one at the new Martha’s Vineyard Film Center, Tisbury Market Place, […]

Somehow, JB Blau found some time to fill me in on what’s happening with Copper Wok, his new Asian restaurant opening in Vineyard Haven.  Let’s talk first about why he and partner/Chef Alex Nagi decided to open a Pan-Asian restaurant. Well for these two, it’s somewhat a selfish (though smart) move, both of them love […]
