If your stay at the Captains House Inn happens to include a Wednesday night, don’t miss one of the two new midweek events on the Cape.
Take a day trip up to Provincetown during the day and on your way home, make a pit stop at Truro Vineyards. One of two vineyards on the Cape, Truro wines are surprisingly tasty (I say surprisingly because with such fluctuations in temperature throughout the year, one wouldn’t expect ideal grape growing conditions). On Wednesday nights, the vineyard hosts a series called WAAM (Wednesday Appetizers Art and Music) featuring a tasting of their wines along with guest chefs, artists and musicians. Pick your favorite(s) and bring a bottle or two back to the inn to enjoy picnic style on the grounds along with a take out dinner of either pizza from Camparis or fried seafood from the Chatham Pier Fish Market at the fish pier. Who says wine can’t be paired with casual fare?
Or, if you prefer to stay closer to “home,” a new series of band concerts will take place each Wednesday through mid August in downtown Chatham at Kate Gould Park. Similar to the town’s Friday night concerts, a tradition for over a half a century now, the Wednesday night concerts will be earlier (6:00-7:30) to cater to folks who prefer a little live entertainment before heading out for a bite to eat. Borrow some beach chairs or towels from the Captains House Inn and head downtown for a throwback in time with guest performers including acoustic folk musicians Tripping Lily, Irish band the Lindsays, old-school jazz outfit the Dixie Diehards, and roots rockers the Rip-It-Ups. Then head to one of our favorite local seafood joints like the Impudent Oyster or Pisces to round out a perfect vacation night on the Cape (don’t forget to have us make advance reservations, though…the summer months are hopping!)
