Mug of the Month - Larsen's Celebrates 50 Years

Closed for the season but Larsen's celebrated 50 years of great fish in Menemsha.  Always a favorite to bring home fish for dinner to cook or to eat on the dock or beach.  Great selections of the best most fresh fish anywhere.  Be sure to visit next year in the 51st year.

Mug of the Month - MV Salads

Mug of the month is MV Salads.  A new place on Circuit Avenue that looks good - we did not have lunch yet but sampled the very tasty complimentary mini-corn muffins topped with edible flowers. Located in the spot that was Papa's Pizza, Deon's, Beetlebung tapas, and maybe some others.  Build your own salad or try a classic - here is a link:
