Tuesday, July 25, 2017 Location: Portuguese-American Club 137 Vineyard Ave, Oak Bluffs, MA 02557

Find your muse while listening to music at Art & Soul, the opening reception for the first annual Legacy Week on the Vineyard. No experience necessary, just an experience to be promised.

Whether you make it a girl’s night, a couple’s night, or a friends and family night, make it a night to remember. What better way to reminisce Martha’s Vineyard than taking away a piece of art made with your soul?

Paint, canvas, aprons, brushes and easels will be provided by the services of Erika Boudilles' https://www.facebook.com/GrapesArtBarMV/, while wine tickets and light refreshments will be served.

An instructor will walk you and your guests step-by-step through the art work that was selected for the class, so do not fret it’s FUN art, not FINE art.

Not a Picasso? No worries. Your presence will be the gift. Feel free to mingle and support the other artists and authors that will have their artistry and literature available for sale.

Not digging the h'ordervous, we feel you, and we got you! The restaurants regular menu will be available to order from independently and cash bar will be available to your liking.

Bring yourself, your business cards, and check all egos at the door. This is Art & Soul.

* SEATING IS LIMITED - (30) seats available for the Paint & Sip portion.

Music Provided By Dj AP https://www.facebook.com/TherealDJAP/

Erika Bardouille calls the Vineyard her "favorite place in the world". Painting has always been a passion for Erika, as she was born into a creative family. Her mother Deynse Bardouille is also a Vineyard native and a nationally known Black author, spoken word poet and painter. Erika opened "Grapes..An Art Bar on the Vineyard", in her backyard in 2014. The purpose was to combine the tranquility of the picturesque Vineyard landscapes and painting fun with friends over a glass of wine. Erika is currently a high school history teacher and resident in Brooklyn, NY.


Island Alpaca


Wedsnesday, July 26, 2017

Island Alpaca Company of Martha's Vineyard began in 2004 with the purchase of 19 acres of land and an antique post-and-beam barn that once stood in Export PA. Over the next two years, the barn was assembled, pastures were cleared, and fencing installed. The original purchase of eight alpacas in 2004 had grown to a starter herd of 31, which moved into the barn in 2006. Today, Island Alpaca has a select herd of over 50 colorful Huacaya alpaca. Island Alpaca Farm is located in Massachusetts on the island of Martha's Vineyard. We offer alpaca breeding, alpaca sales, year-round, or winter alpaca boarding (agisting), educational workshops for both children and adults, and continuing customer support. Island Alpaca Farm is perfectly sized to offer personalized service and attention, along with a fine selection of breeding stock, both herd sires and junior herd sires as well as pet/fiber quality alpaca.

$5 pp admission from May 1 to October 31 annually

Relax your mind with our circle of meditation at sunset with Flora Luyando of www.florahealing.com

What a relaxing way to end the day! THIS IS MUST SEE! You can grab a bite to eat from Menemsha Market which has the best lobster rolls on the island! The food from Larsens' is even better! Just be sure to bring wine if you want to have some because you can't buy it there.The kids play on the beach and the adults wait for sunset. This is a favorite beach on the island to watch the sunset. The water is calm and you can find marine life near the shore line. It's a great place to watch the sunset with the adoring crowd.

Just to note the beach each is rocky and not the greatest swimming beach, however is fun for kids to explore to catch crabs and small fish with their nets. The sunsets are breath taking .

Come very early when coming over to see the sunset. There is limited parking, and very often it is impossible to find a parking spot. The "sunset crowd" begins to gather a good 2 hours before the sunset. BUT - there's also a 2 hr time limit on parking in the adjacent lot, until around 6 or 8 pm. (sorry, I don't exactly remember). The police DO watch and ticket cars! There are also remote parking lots. The best choice - take the bus there. You can get there from almost anywhere on island, and all-day bus pass (use as many times and distances as you like) costs only $8, and is much cheaper than a parking ticket!

You can get there by car or bus... Cabs travel to there but it may cost you $50... and the bus is more entertaining and serves as an informal tour guide. :) The cuisine is fresh out of the water shellfish, lobsters, clams, oysters etc... Bringing your own alcohol is welcomed and recommended as they only sell water there..most families set up a picnic area on the beach and eat dinner and play board games until the sunsets... Very relaxing and beautiful :)

The crowd usually applauds and sings America The Beautiful

Public restroom are near by and near by shops have take out.

The sunset is awesome and it's the best place to appreciate God's glory! See ya there!
