Week 3 Staff Picks – The new Wine Bar Trio and Sweet E’s late night treats!
Back Door Donuts in Oak Bluffs is a 40 year tradition. After the MV Gourmet Bakery closes for the night they sell fresh baked goods.
Take the #13 bus to Oak Bluffs and take the young’uns to the Carousel. (If you didn’t bring any young’uns, skip straight to the lunch!) It’s loud and raucous, so to calm everyone down after get lunch from Skinny’s Fat Sandwiches to-go and slip between the shops to the Campground, a quiet little maze of gingerbread cottages surrounding the wrought-iron Tabernacle, the ‘physical and spiritual center of the campground’. There are grassy areas and benches to enjoy your meal. Become one with your sandwich.
Grab a couple of beach chairs and head on down to South Beach after dark for some serious stargazing! It’s like sitting at the edge of the world, but bring a jacket, because the edge of the world can get drafty at night. Love, Mom.
No need to fight the crowds at Menemsha for sunset viewing. Pack an evening picnic and take the #13 bus to State Beach and park yourself on the pond side of the street. Same big red sun. No fighting for your patch of sand.
Head out to West Tisbury and catch some great photo opportunities at the Field Gallery. The sculpture garden, featuring a permanent collection by Tom Maley is full of amazing and fun sculptures – you’ll know what I mean when you see them! There are also 2 indoor galleries with beautiful pieces by a variety of local and international artists.
Buy a day pass from the visitor center on Church Street and hop onto the #6 bus going over to West Tisbury and transfer to the #5 bus. Stop at the Menemsha beach for a great day! Getting a little hungry and miss lunch time? Don’t worry! Just run over to the Menemsha Fish Market for a great seafood lunch. You won’t regret it! Just remember to bring a few bottles of beer, as it’s a dry town.
Late night munchies? Check out Sweet E’s just down the street on South Water. They have 12 different cupcakes each day. My favorite so far is the lemon curd filled and the orange creamsicle. They’re open until 10pm so it’s a good stop on the way back to your room..
For a unique evening out, check out the new Trio Wine Bar at Black Sheep. You can enjoy flights of wine along with their fabulous artisan cheeses and small plates in this chic new spot right around the corner on N. Summer Street.
