The Week Ahead: Friday, February 2 through Thursday, February 8, 2018
February 2, 2018
We greet February in the Week Ahead, bundled up to our eyeballs and hoping against hope that Punxsutawney Phil’s shadow is a no-show, bringing an early end to the freezer-like weather that we’ve endured for most of January. Of course none of this stops us from enjoying the Island’s down-time, gathering at Island watering holes and restaurants to sample some typically off menu items that clever and talented Island chefs have added to tempt us out from under the featherbeds, including not one, but two Indian nights (Monday’s at Henry’s and Tuesdays at the Barn, Bowl and Bistro) and numerous and ever-changing ‘specials’ nights pretty much Island-wide. Click here for some possibilities but best to keep on top of the ever-changing food landscape by checking in with the restaurants themselves, quite a few of which close for a much deserved break in February. Besides the opportunity of insulating oneself with food and drink, this week also brings with it the excitement of Super Bowl Sunday to experience at home or with fans and friends at pubs around the Island (for example, The Ritz this celebrates with nachos, tacos, and half off wings) as well s a flurry of events some of which are highlighted below. Enjoy the Week Ahead!
