Holiday Moments Made Merry

If I could show you how easy it is to be properly prepared for a memorable holiday moment, would you be interested in knowing more? For someone who is a social butterfly and always inviting friends over last moment, this may seem like an easy feat.  You have to ask yourself, however, just how well did you pull off your last impromptu gathering?  We aren’t talking about putting out slightly stale crackers and a block of cheese that is glowing the same orange/yellow hue as a well-known Champagne brand. Creating new holiday traditions that will be remembered (positively) for years to come doesn’t have to be as challenging as driving across town on Nantucket in the summertime traffic.  Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzieoffers a unique spin on entertaining during the last quarter of the year that will make your fancy féte, no matter how large or small, stand out among all the other invites this season.

Some might say that the Petticoat Row of Nantucket was a result of the need for survival. While men were out ‘on the whale,’ the women left behind needed to make a wage to support their families, but also create a financial security in the off chance that their husbands had an unprofitable voyage or, graver yet, the ill-fated were lost at sea. This opportunity offered the women a sense of community where they...Read More >

Nantucket is breathing a huge sigh of relief these days.  As the fast and furious summer chapter on island will soon close, the door to the illustrious autumn begins to open.

Sparkling Sensations

This weekend on Nantucket is a significant marker for many that summertime is soon expiring.  The Boston Pops on Nantucket concert is the largest and most popular summer event on the island, attracting thousands of music lovers to Jetties Beach for a night of spectacular entertainment – all to raise critical funds for our local Nantucket Cottage Hospital.  This year’s perfect pairing with the orchestra is RAIN – A Tribute to the Beatles, which is named in reference to the song as the B-Side of the “Paper Writer” single. They give audiences the experience of seeing Beatles’ songs live and recreating iconic Beatles moments.   Whether you are attending this musical revue, or have other plans for this iconic weekend, there is plenty to celebrate about life on Nantucket.  Now you, too, can experience a handful of sparkling sensations to toast the last few moments of summer with a little help from your friend Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie.
