Week 5 – Braised Short Ribs…


For a reasonable water view lunch in Edgartown order the tomato bisque soup at The Atlantic.

The menu doesn’t tell you but it comes with a great grilled cheese sandwich.

For $9.00 you can’t beat it.


On Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays you can go to Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary for a guided kayak tour of Sengekontacket Pond. (If you can pronounce it correctly I think they should give you a discount!)  It is for everyone 11 years old and up. $40 per person from 9:30-11:30. Gorgeous! (If you can get your 11 year old up before 9:30am…)


You’ve seen the signs around town. You know you want to do it. Grab your scarf and goggles, we’re going for a biplane ride.



Wow, are you ever visiting at the right time! From August 6 through the 13th, enjoy the Martha’s Vineyard Jazz Festival, “All Things Jazz”, sponsored by the Featherstone Art Center. For event information, call John Lee at 410-205-6585 or go to http:www.mvjazzfest.com.


Take a Magic Carpet ride!  This 56’ wooden yawl is “real sailing” for groups of up to 18 right out of Edgartown harbor.


Wednesday August 17th is the Grand Illumination Night & Community Sing in Oak Bluffs. The community meets at the Tabernacle for sing at 7:30pm, and the colorful paper lanterns are lit throughout the campground at 8pm. Truly a sight that shouldn’t be missed.



This week, it’s short and sweet.  Braised Boneless Shortribs at Letoile.  Enjoy!


The Agricultural Fair is here!  August 18-21, this is a Vineyard tradition not to be missed! The Ag Fair is celebrating it’s 150th year, this year.  Tip: Friday night is “wristband night” when you can ride everything for one fee. See you there!
