The Week Ahead: Friday, March 9 through Thursday, March 15, 2018
March 9, 2018
Coming off a spate of turbulent weather, Martha’s Vineyard has regained some semblance of normalcy as it heads into the Week Ahead. With water off the roadways and back where it belongs, tree limbs tidied up and electricity again coursing through the becalmed wires overhead, we’re more than ready to venture out along with friends and neighbors for a night (or afternoon) of music, to again enjoy the out-of-doors or to learn about Island farming in its offshore oyster fields. As the Week Ahead winds down, the always much-awaited Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival kicks off with a film from close to home: Chappaquiddick, which will be followed by what’s sure to be a lively discussion with director John Curran and actor Jason Clarke. Enjoy the Week Ahead!
