More than seventy of the Vineyard’s food and drink purveyors will be participating in this year’s Taste of the Vineyard Gourmet Stroll, scheduled for Thursday, June 15th. The island’s finest restaurants (think: Alchemy, Coach House, Détente and l’etoile), caterers (like Tea Lane, Chefworks and Kitchen Porch), and beverage purveyors (MS Walker, Offshore Ale Company and Banfi Wines among others) gather to offer you the Vineyard’s best in food, wine and hand-crafted beer. The unofficial kick-off to the Vineyard’s summer social season will also feature Joe Mikos Photography’s settee and “Shoot Yourself” camera, and live music from Jerry Bennett and the Sultans of Swing. The festivities begin at 6:30pm on the lawn at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown. Tickets cost $125 per person. Call 508.627.4440 to purchase yours or to get more information.
