Mug of the Month - The Barn Bowl & Bistro

A great place to go any time of year is The Barn Bowl & Bistro in Oak Bluffs.  The food is really wonderful and the service is great.  The beers are always well chilled with a great selection.

Put your name in and after dinner you get to bowl - each lane is named after a Vineyard town or landmark.  They tell me its not like golf where a low score is a good score!

Here is a link to the facility:

The mugs are very special as they are made by an American pottery company from Minnesota:

As we sit here in the middle of winter it is good to remember some of the classic Vineyard spot - this mug is from Poole's Fish which now has a new name and operator - but it was around many many years from 1945 or 1946 until the 21st century.
