Photos: Another ‘Taste’ for the books


The hype was real for Thursday night’s 32nd annual Taste of the Vineyard Gourmet Stroll. Whether a Taste regular, or a first-timer, the highly anticipated summer event never seems to disappoint. Featured restaurants, caterers, and beer and wine distributors lined the massive, glammed-out tent located on the lawns of the Dr. Daniel Fisher House. The event brings in vendors from all over, both on and off-Island. Among the familiar purveyors were friendly faces from The Black Dog, the Atlantic Fish & Chophouse, Rosewater Wine and Spirits, La Soffitta, Blue Crab Kitchen, Fishbones Bar & Grille, and Garde East. Patrons, of course, dressed to the nines. If the ever-present excitement in the air wasn’t enough, The Sultans and their army of entertainers kept the crowd on their feet all night long. The Taste is held as an annual fundraiser for the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust.
