Week 6-7 – Nachos, Bluefish Derby, Alchemy…

BY ADAM | 14 September 2011


For great casual Edgartown dining try upstairs at Alchemy.  You can order from the pub menu or the dinner menu at the back bar area and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere.



Snag a couple of chairs and a bottle of wine and walk down to Lighthouse Beach to watch the sunset. Bring a blanket, it gets chilly!



Everyone can be a kid again on Saturday, September17th. At 4:30, make your way to the Flying Horses in Oak Bluffs and enter the brass ring contest. All age categories. $10 entrance fee at the door. All proceeds benefit the Jena Pothier Flying Horses Scholarship Foundation. All entrants go home with a commemorative brass ring!


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


Come join us again for The Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby starting on September 11-October 15th. Have a wonderful time.



I went to the Wharf for the for the first time last night to watch the Red Sox and Yankees (Sox WON!) and that some of the best Nachos ever. Simple but sweet.  I ordered it with the chili.  Highly recommended.
