The Week Ahead Mon., Jan. 23, through Sun., Jan. 29

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

If you were waiting for the perfect  excuse  to spend a winter weekend on Martha’s Vineyard,  January 27-29 may have been just what you’ve been waiting for.

The Harbor View Hotel has just announced an upcoming Comedy Night slated for Friday January 27th. Featuring 3 of Boston’s funniest comics -  Dick Doherty, Harrison Stebbins, and Mike McCarthy – the event promises to be the perfect weekend kickoff and antidote to the winter blahs.  Enjoy dinner then segue right into the show  (don’t miss Henry’s  classic cocktails!)

On Saturday the fun continues in Oak Bluffs where PA Club hosts the annual Big Chili Contest.  Sample all sorts of chilis and not so chilis from professional and amateur chili-meisters.  Cool your tortured tongue with lashings of cold beer.  Repeat.  Advance tickets for this event have been selling out but mvyradio who sponsors the event always holds back a bunch for last minute sales at the door. If the unthinkable should happen and you don’t get in head back into town where  you can kick back at the Offshore Ale. Sample the house brewed beers and tuck into their amazing brick oven, baked-to-order pizzas. If you’re still craving chili and it’s on the menu try theirs …it won 1st place Judges Pick award in 2011.

Can it get any better?  And just to make things even easier, the Harbor View is offering special rates for Chili Fest Weekend January 27 – 29 with rates at the Harbor View starting at $ 99 and at the Kelley House for $79.  Include Sunday brunch in your one or two night package for as little as $135.

Enjoy the week ahead!
