The Week Ahead: Friday, September 18 through Thursday, September 24, 2015
September 18, 2015
The Week Ahead brings with it the autumn equinox which means we really, really do have to stop talking about summer in spite of the clear skies and balmy temperatures. That said, it’s summer that comes immediately to mind when one checks out the great events that are upcoming: a new play opening at the MV Playhouse, the continuation of the Artisan’s Festivals and Farmer’s Market in West Tisbury and even a wine tasting / visual thinking event to wrap up the Week Ahead. Enjoy!
