Island Time, May 28 – June 2: Passage to Summer
May 28, 2020
At last, we can bid farewell to an iffy spring and welcome the summer season. Restaurants are coming back to life — with curbside service for now, but that includes adult beverages — the air and water are warming, and the beaches are open. To find out what else is happening on Martha’s Vineyard this weekend and in the week to come, visit the The Complete Martha’s Vineyard Calendar. We’ve pulled a few best bets for you here.
