Patty and Allison go to Cisco Brewery

Patty and I had the day to ourselves.  What to do??  Go on a walk, shop around town, go to the beach?  Nope, we decided to try out something new!  We have been coming to Nantucket for 18 years and surprisingly, there are still things on this island that we have yet to try! So yesterday, Patty and I decided to check off one of those Nantucket To Do things off our list.   We headed out to Cisco Brewery!

Cisco Brewery 1

Cisco Brewery is a cool hangout spot for friends to gather to get drinks, food, listen to live music, play some corn hole and have some fun!

We had a fun time hanging out there!  Just remember… it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere!

A Midsummer Night in Tuscany

Yes, we really went to Tuscany. Okay not really…but it sure felt like we were there! Every year our club hosts a party for all the members to enjoy a fun evening of delicious food and lots of dancing. And for the past three years, my mom, Emily, and our friend Carole have been the party planners! They have so much fun putting it all together and this year they really knocked it out of the park. (And that is my unbiased opinion ;) )

There is always a theme to the party – last year’s was a Luau and this year’s was Tuscan! I was most excited about this theme because Italian food is my absolute favorite. And I pretty much ate my weight in spaghetti that night.

The night starts out with drinks, appetizers, and lots of mingling. Then, everyone moves into the tent for dinner and dessert. And once everyone’s tummies were stuffed, we all waddled onto the dance floor to dance the night away.


















Emily is known for her goofy – I mean, crowd pleasing moves!! So, if you ever find yourself on a dance floor racking your brain for a few new moves…you are welcome to borrow some from her. Watch and learn in this video below!

We always have such a blast and look forward to this night every year. I can’t wait to hear what next year’s theme will be. Mom and Emily…want to give us any hints??
