The Week Ahead: Friday, March 2 through Thursday, March 8, 2018
March 2, 2018
Martha’s Vineyard welcomes March in the hope that sunny and warm days are not far behind. The Week Ahead starts off with the tail-end of the very low-key school vacation week before switching gears and focus to what’s going on in Hollywood. Watch the Oscars with fellow film lovers at the MV Film Center where you can cheer and groan as much as you like as movie-star royalty celebrates itself and its contributions to America’s favorite art form – film. Closer to home, attention turns to gardening – in spirit if not in actual, digging-up-the-dirt, real time – and a hard hat tour of what, in the not to distant future, will be the MV Museum’s brand new campus. Bring your camera to capture some of the pretty spectacular views of Vineyard Haven’s outer harbor and the Sound beyond, which can be seen from the rolling lawn of what was once the Marine Hospital at the intersection of Skiff Avenue and Lagoon Pond Road. Then it’s on to Argentina at the Lighthouse Grill’s first wine dinner of 2018 where new tastes and pairings await. Enjoy the Week Ahead!
