4. Raising the Bar at TOPPER’S…
TOPPER’S at The Wauwinet has long been a favorite spot for sipping sundowner cocktails on the hotel’s lush lawn overlooking the bay. Now there will be a few new reasons to enjoy a toast at TOPPER’S. The elegant Saturday and Sunday brunch service will  feature a Bloody Mary bar, complete with delicious fixings for creating your own personalized brunch beverage, and maybe a baker’s dozen of local Retsyo Oysters to go with it.
While TOPPER’S cocktail menu may has many tempting creations to choose from, the 2017 menu is set to include a few mini versions of cocktails highlighting local Triple Eight vodka, so you can sample more than one (or two!).

Get Hooked on Fall at Nantucket Boat Basin

The end summer does not mean the end of good times at Nantucket Boat Basin. September and early October can be ideal times to visit, as the days are sunny and serene, seas are following and calm; and space is available!

The Nantucket Boat Basin hosted the Bluefin blast this past weekend. Below is a photo of the crew of Eskimo, with their 490 pound fish.

A total of 42 fish were hooked, most ranging between 50-60 inches overall.  Fall is a great time for tuna fishing off the East coast, as the fish are moving south towards the Carolinas.

The Cystic Fibrosis Slam Tournament has been underway this week.  And Nantucket’s weather has been the best in years for anglers; two “slams” have already been reported.  A “Grand Slam” is when an angler catches four species of fish: a bluefish, striped bass, false albacore and bonito.  All proceeds from the tournament are donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The Nantucket Classic Fishing Tournament will also be held later this month, as the inaugural Sounding’s Nantucket Classic, sponsored by Soundings Magazine, Cisco Brewery, Southport Boats, Angler’s Journal and the Ocearch vessel.  The tournament is scheduled for Friday, September 23rd and Saturday, September 24th.  The event will include a welcome cocktail reception on the Ocearch research vessel on Friday night, after fishing the afternoon.  Additional information can be found by clicking here.
