The Week Ahead: Friday, May 11 through Thursday, May 17, 2018
May 11, 2018
Mornings on the Vineyard are noisy with birdsong now as the days continue to warm up and spring weather becomes the norm rather than an unexpected, but oh-so-welcome, respite from rain and chill. Looking at events for the Week Ahead it certainly seems as if we’ve all caught the urge to sing out, get out and check out all the pre-season options the Island has to offer. We celebrate mom this weekend at the annual Pink & Green weekend and on-stage at the Vineyard Playhouse; we’ll learn how to encourage a full berry bowl of summer’s most sumptuous fruits at Vineyard Garden’s first Saturday seminar of the season and explore what we know (and don’t know) about the world around us at Felix Neck’s Trivia Night. There’s even an opportunity to explore how the Island’s news has been, and continues to be, published for the past 172 years at the Vineyard Gazette. Enjoy the Week Ahead!
A heads up is in order for this weekend as the Steamship Authority opens its Oak Bluffs terminal for the summer season. Be sure to check to see if your arrival/departure is from Vineyard Haven or Oak Bluffs to avoid the necessity for any last minute, high speed trips between the two towns.
