The Week Ahead: Friday, April 20 through Thursday, April 26, 2018
April 20, 2018
Start off the weekend with a Champagne toast at Rosewater Wine and Spirits’ reopening, then roll up your sleeves and pitch in at the Vineyard Conservation Society’s annual beach clean up on Saturday. It should be a great day to get outdoors, with the Island being promised mostly sunny skies and temperatures hovering near 50. Having done your bit to restore Island beaches to their pre-winter, unsullied state, on Sunday you can take an extra bit of pleasure at Pathways’ presentation of The Voyage Out: Poetry, Prose, Music & Memoir which celebrates the sea and its surroundings through the arts. Heading into the work week, The Edgartown Library continues with its month long celebration of Shakespeare with a screening of The Winter’s Tale as performed in London’s famed Barbican Theater. Next day, the Vineyard Gazette continues its Tuesdays in the Newsroom series, this week hosting the heads of the Island’s police forces for what should be the insightful perspective from law enforcement. Make some good use of all that random, mostly useless information we all have rattling around in our heads at Wednesday’s Trivia Night at The Wharf, then wrap up the Week Ahead on Thursday when the MV Film Center begins its 4 day Spectrum Film Festival, back for its 2nd year.
Enjoy the Week Ahead!
