6 pACK of Grab-n-Go’s

The sandwich game on Nantucket is ridiculous. Besides the beautiful women, beaches, world-class restaurants, bars, and great people, it’s probably the leading reason I come back every year. I’ve been stuffed to the gills from focaccias and ciabattas.  I’ve been appeased by aiolis and left gratified by cheeses. Whether on a beach or on a bench, I’ve watched excess avocado slip onto my dad gut and just simpered knowing I’m…

The MANtucket Spikeball Tourney!

This is guy stuff. This is a dad bod’s utopia. It’s skillful but doesn’t require elite athleticism. You can talk trash like Kevin Garnett. You can boast about your game like Floyd Mayweather. Heck, you might even pick up a date or two if you’ve got a nice hammer (a good spike). The game is Spikeball and it has taken the Nantucket beaches by storm. You’ve probably noticed that little…

MANtucket takes on ACK SURF SCHOOL

I need that beach and I need it all day. I run hot, plain and simple. Few too many sandwiches on ciabatta instead of honey wheat have left me sweaty in the dog days of summer. Yet, I have beach ADD. Whether it’s volleyball, Spikeball or just tossing the pigskin around, I’m always looking for something to keep the barrel sweating. I’ve made numerous empty claims to be the king…

the parents visit MANtucket!

There are a few things that you should and shouldn’t do when the parents visit. Have six drinks before dinner, that would fall under the “don’t” list. Nonchalantly toss parking ticket #256 under your passenger seat, we’ll also file that under the “don’t” list. Miss breakfast, but make last call at Stubby’s for chicken littles with cheese and extra ranch…also something not necessarily gold star worthy from the people who raised you. Yet,…

Breakfast with MANtucket

“Island time.” Yep, it’s my excuse every time I’m late. It’s my reason for having an extra cocktail at lunch. It’s the island time atmosphere that makes Nantucket number one. Hitting snooze button too many times on the alarm clock can leave you in “grab-a-sandwich-before-the-beach” mode. Get that breakfast, B. A few smart people have said it’s the most important meal of the day. Don’t be a b and eat your…

MANtucket blACKbook on the best sandwiches

In search of the best sandwich on island? our MANtucket blACKbook has a FRESH take on his top ten sandwiches on the ROCK! CHARLIE SAYS… The food on Nantucket is truly something special.
