Artist, Genius, and Prankster by Sanibel Chai The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade conjures up images of floats, balloons, marching bands, and lavish performance. Notions of entertainment come to mind before artistry, but the giant inflatable balloons that the parade is most famous for are the brainchild of celebrated German-American artist Anthony Frederick Sarg (1880-1942). Tony Sarg, as he is more commonly known, is being featured by the Artists Association in a new exhibit called Wizard of the Whimsical: Tony Sarg’s Fantastic Art. The exhibition includes cartoons, toys, games, marionettes, fine art, and works on paper such as books and illustrations. The works featured come from the Artists Association of Nantucket, loans from private collections including the collection of George Korn. Korn formerly owned an antiques business on Nantucket and is a lifelong collector of Sarg’s work. The child-friendly exhibit will be held at the Visual Arts Center Gallery at 24 Amelia Drive from June 23 through September 1, open for viewing Monday-Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. A festive opening reception will be held this Friday, June 23 from 6 to 8 pm. There is a complementary exhibit on display now through August in the Great Hall of the Nantucket Atheneum on India Street. Two cabinets are dedicated to Sarg’s works on paper. In honor of the Tony Sarg exhibit, George Korn and AAN Curator of Exhibitions Robert Frazier will be giving a Curator’s Talk at the Nantucket Atheneum on August 15 at 5:30 pm in the Great Hall. Curator Robert Frazier explains, “Sarg was a creative genius…beyond illustration he designed toys, games, furniture with illustration, and of course, the iconic cartoonish balloons for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parades.” His prolific career is all the more impressive given the knowledge that he received no formal artistic training. Sarg introduced a giant Felix the Cat balloon in 1927 during what was then called the Macy’s Christmas Parade. The balloons

Broadway Talent at White Heron by Cara Godlesky

C OOL . C ASUAL . C OMPLIMENTARY . TOPPER’S BY WATER Arrive in style for lunch or dinner aboard The Wauwinet Lady. Complimentary cruise departing from the White Elephant

Back to the sixth century BC, theatre has brought life and drama to communities throughout history. It can provide people with a feeling of self-confidence while performing in front of audiences, teaches actors how to continue on through criticism, and helps audiences think about new perspectives by watching scenarios unfold on stages before them. White Heron Theatre Company brings those aspects of theatre entertainment to our community through their professional Equity performances featuring skilled actors. White Heron Theatre Company was founded and operated in New York, when actor-director Lynne Bolton and Earle Gister, associate dean at Yale School of Drama, met and discovered they had similar dreams—to create a theatre company of professional, driven artists. When Bolton was thinking of a name for the theatre, she was stumped. She turned to Gister for help. Gister reassured her and said it will come to her. Indeed, the name came in an almost celestial manner. Bolton was thinking of a name when she started to notice white herons on decorations and flying around everywhere she went. While at the pool on a very “blue, blue, blue” day with children splashing in the water and parents chatting, a giant, white heron flew over the pool. Everyone there stopped what they were doing to watch the bird fly by. LYNNE BOLTON continued on page 9

by Robert P. Barsanti “Family desperately seeking housing.” The sheet of paper has been rained on and faded in the early summer sun. It hangs on the message board near The Hub, next to the lost sunglasses, misplaced cats, and forgotten rock bands. They were being forced out. There were three children with a fourth imminent. Year-round housing would be great, but anything at all, at this point, would be fine. I’m not sure what point they are at, exactly. I hope that they have found some housing. Perhaps some retired school teacher with an empty house has rented it to them so that he can live in the trailer out back. But they are probably still looking. Or they left. I feel a twinge of guilt seeing the ad. I could not house them, should I want to, and I don’t know anyone with a spare house to rent at a number that a growing family could afford. I would love to offer them three bedrooms, two baths, a big yard, and white picket fence but that house got sold for a million five, then was torn down and replaced. Most of my time on island has been living the gypsy life, shifting from one rental to another. Twice, I shoved high school students out of their rooms for the summer. I have lived over garages, in carriage houses, guest cottages, and, for one notable winter, in Codfish Park. The gypsy life requires some sacrifice. For ten years, I only owned as much furniture as I could move in my Jeep, I kept my ears open for possible openings, and I made peace with dropping a king’s ransom in rent. Gypsies can’t afford to make enemies, since they never know whose roof they will sleep under. I would like to say that I earned the roof I finally called my own, but that wouldn’t be true. It required luck, friends, and family. But with help, I was continued on page 22

What’s Invasive? THE TRINITY by Dr. Sarah T. Bois Director of Research & Education for the Linda Loring Nature Foundation One of the things Nantucket residents and visitors agree on is the natural beauty of our island. The sandplain grasslands and coastal heathlands that make up much of the south coast, middle moors and west end are iconic native landscapes. Much of this land is under conservation and no longer threatened with development. However, they are at risk from incursions of non-native invasive species. Invasive non-native plants are a force to be reckoned with. Between state, federal, and local agencies/organizations, you’ve probably heard or seen some mention of our worst invaders and possibly had to deal with them in your own yard. In my tenure working with invasive plants and educating the public, I find there are generally two camps of people; 1) those who worry about invasive plant impacts and may want to do something about it and 2) those who wonder why we care at all. The term invasive can bring to mind many things. In this context, we mean plant species that are not native to Nantucket (or Massachusetts) and cause some kind of harm. That harm can be economic, ecological, or harmful to human health. In Massachusetts, they’ve created the Massachusetts prohibited plant list for species that have documented such harm. On Nantucket, our primary threats are to ecological biodiversity. Some obvious invaders, like Japanese knotweed dominate an area, shade out any other plants, and can change hydrology. Others, such as garlic mustard, a small biennial herb, are seemingly innocuous. However, they also cause harm by dominating in understory areas, outcompeting the natives. Garlic mustard is also allelopathic, secreting chemicals underground that deter other plants from growing near them. Invasive vines like oriental bittersweet and porcelain berry can grow up and over tall shrubs and trees. These vines can both shade out their host plants or strangle it as they slowly grow around it.

The Reel World Acting as a Sommelier by Jenny Benzie Advanced Sommelier + Certified Wine Educator, Proprietress of Épernay Wine & Spirits Becoming an Advanced Sommelier requires a tremendous amount of time, effort and diligent study in order to learn about different grape varietals from around the globe, keep up-to-date with ever-changing wine regions and perfect the endless number of food and wine pairings that may be possible with today’s creative cuisine. Along with all the educational pursuits, being a sommelier in real life is a balancing act of training your service staff team, entertaining guests during dinner service and maintaining your cellar both physically and financially. Luckily for you, it is much easier and less stressful (not to mention fun!) to pretend to be a sommelier every once in awhile and occasionally ‘act’ like one while entertaining friends and family in your own home or perhaps for a festive wine-themed fundraising charity event. Preparing, opening and serving wine is a showcase in itself. Here is a quick ‘acting’ guide to ensure even the toughest of movie critics knows you did your due diligence on your character before attempting to play the part.

THE

SCENE

Just like a director sets the scene in a movie, the individual acting as the sommelier does the same for their wine service. Your set design creates the ambiance you wish to achieve for your shining sommelier debut. Lighting should be soft and subdued so that it creates a sense of calmness among your diners. The room should be free of any scents that will interfere with the aromas of the wine. Scented candles are great for covering up smells in the bathroom, but not when trying to figure out if what you smell is really coming from the wine or the match you just lit. Keep in mind that not all smells are bad smells though. If you happen to experience a brief mouth-watering whiff of food from the kitchen,this experience will actually heighten your wine tasting experience and is acceptable. Next, it is important to ensure the wine is at proper serving temperature. This means Champagne should be ice cold (45 degrees F), rosĂŠs and whites should be properly chilled (52-55 degrees F) and reds should be served at cellar temperature (62-68 degrees F). This is like the make-up artistry of the wine where if a wine is too cold, it will mask the delicate aromas and flavors of the wine. In the other extreme, if the wine is served too warm, then you will be able to discern every possible inherent flaw that may not have been noticed if it had been left to cool a little longer.

PROPS Glassware should be clean, polished spotless, and odor-free with no linty residue left behind from your polishing cloth. The shape of the glassware should also be appropriate to the type of wine being served. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, along with other thin-skinned reds like Tempranillo and Sangiovese, should be served in a large bulbous type glass, where Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, or red grapes often used in blending with this continued on page 28

White Heron from page 4

Bolton looked over to the woman next to her on the pool deck and saw she was needlepointing a white heron. She looked up the meaning of the bird, and found it symbolizes “flying over adversity.” Just as Gister had said, the name came to her. The theatre was left in the hands of Bolton when Gister passed away. She wasn’t quite sure what to do with the company and it was left in “hibernation” mode for a while. It was revived when Bolton decided White Heron would mount a professional and classic production of Canada in 2012. White Heron put the play on Bennett Hall on Centre Street. They filmed the production and submitted it to Edinburgh Fringe Festival and were among the few talented groups chosen to come to the festival to perform. The festival, which normally features very edgy content, accepted the classical production. Canada received great reviews, which confirmed Bolton’s interest in continuing the effort of producing professional theatre. Finding a space for their productions on an island with no dedicated theatre space at all became the main goal. Actor Michael Kopko, now executive director of White Heron and one of the driving forces behind the effort, found a vacant lot downtown and the company set up a large tent. Kopko even drove to New Orleans to pick up seats from a Jehovah Witness Kingdom Hall, which still remain in the theatre today. “We unloaded the tent and put it up. It was a MICHAEL KOPKO barn raising, basically. We had pizza and food,” said Bolton. “Marine Home Center, bless them, gave us the wood to built the stage and risers. We build a theatre and a set. We did three plays that summer, and we had people come to the tent.” White Heron moved into a newly constructed building in July of 2016, but for two years, the theatre still used the tent to perform plays. Kopko remi-

Spiritual Heritag Herit e Nantuckket is a non-denominational group whose mission is to serve Nantucket and tto build and encourage the Christian coommunity.

Nantucket is known for its long history craftsmanship and handmade designs. Sarah Morneau, owner and designer of s•mac designs, continues the island’s traditions by handcrafting her own leather goods. Since 2008, Morneau creates leather purses, bags and key chains using just her hands and her sewing machine. Her designs are all original and versatile that can suit a multitude of styles and needs. Because she makes each bag individually, no two bags are alike. Morneau sources the leather for the bags from within the United States and uses only treated, durable materials. The interiors of the s•mac designs’ bags are lined with either brightly colored organic cotton or organic canvas while the outsides feature antique brass buttons. “Handcrafted with love 30 miles out to sea,” s•mac designs sells a variety of leather bags including clutches, cross body bags, and tote bags that convert into backpacks. Many of the purses have removable straps, such as the cross body that can turn into a clutch. Morneau bases her creations off of her ideas of what she would want in a purse and see in a design. As she handcrafts her products, Morneau is thoughtful about the purses and the practically of the bags. continued on page 11

“I come up with the designs on my own, do the sketches, make the prototypes. Every step in the process is something that I’ve done,” said Morneau. “The designs are mine, the execution is mine, and I’m the one out there selling them so I think that makes it a really personal experience because you’re getting something that I put all my thought and effort into. It really is a labor of love.” s•mac designs also is known for its adaptable clutches that can turn into wristlets, hooked through a belt loop for those who want to be hands free or even clipped onto a bike. New this summer are s•mac designs’ multicolor tassel wristlets. The wristlets now come in vibrant yellow, orange, rust, bold magenta, light green, pale blue, and nautical navy.

nisces about the company’s time performing in the tent. One of Kopko’s most memorable experiences at White Heron was when the July 4th hurricane came to Nantucket two years ago. The building was just finished in the tent-theatre, which was equipped with risers, stages and lights. Kopko sat upstairs in a building next door and had to watch the tent sway in the hurricane gales. Hoping the tent and all company’s hard work wouldn’t get wrecked and ruined, Kopko had to wait out the storm. When the hurricane passed, the tent had little damage. They were able to repair it, and the following night, White Heron put on a play. “The show must go on.” White Heron is an Equity Theatre. Becoming this type of theatre is difficult and expensive, but it allows them to hire the best professional actors to fill every role. The professional actors who work with White Heron are members of the Actor’s Equity Association, an acting union. The actors in the company come from across the country and world. Many have performed on Broadway. The actors who perform for White Heron range from ages 19 to 86. They also all live together in the same house, which shows that the love of theatre can create true bonds. “Our mission is about community and collaborative art and its great. We have a company of actors who love each other and get along beautifully,” said Bolton. “When that happens, [the actors] all can live together…go to the beach together…it’s a really great experience for all of us.” White Heron, as an Equity theatre, brings the opportunity for members of the island to view plays put on by talented actors and directors. It brings a type of professional collaboration that is rare to a small community. Essentially, it brings Broadway theatre to Nantucket. “We bring professional theatre to the community so people can see what they would see in New York but here,” said Kopko. Having these professional actors to fill the roles rather than local actors brings a different type of theatre to Nantucket that hasn’t been offered in previous years. “I guess it’s the same as if the music center has famous pianist come here and do a concert, you don’t say, ‘well what does that do for the continued on page 17

community? How come they don’t have local pianists play?’” said Kopko. “We try to do plays that are thoughtful and have substance to them to get people thinking about themselves and their relationships and issues and things like that,” said Kopko. “I think the whole point is to enrich people spiritually and emotionally and intellectually.” White Heron, now located at 5 North Water St., will put on four professional plays this summer, including Outside Mullingar, SeaWife, and Romeo and Juliet. Their full schedule is at whiteherontheatre.org. This summer the educational and artistic development wing of White Heron, called the Nantucket Theatre Institute, will kick off a new program called Practical Intensives. This is an educational program for young acting students who are ready and hungry to develop their skills. To participate, students must go through an extensive application process that includes a written essay, letters of recommendation, and reciting monologues. This ensures only dedicated students who are wiling to learn and eager to pursue acting will be accepted into the program. “We are excited to have this opportunity to let students and the community get access to transformative theatre happening on island and gain access to incredible talent,” said Tiffany Gallo, who will assist the youth program and is the managing director of Nantucket Theatre Institute. Practical Intensives pairs young actors with professional actors to shadow and to work on techniques and approach different theatre scenarios. This teaches the aspiring actors how professional theatres are run and the logistics of careers in this field. The students will put on two shows this summer, The Tempest and The Mixtape. “This professional growth opportunity allows me to work with students to invest in them and also open up the door for them this incredible talent and experience by training them on the White Heron Equity stage,” said Gallo. White Heron Theatre Company will host their first show of their fifth season on June 27, the comedy Kevin Flynn: Fear of Heights. On July 10, they will open Outside Mullingar with a rollicking gala reception with Tony-nominee Jeremy Shamos, Nina Hellman, Janet Zarish, and Kevin O’Rourke. Tickets are expected to sell out, so don’t wait to visit whiteherontheatre.org or call the box office at 508-825-5268.

ARTISTS ASSOCIATION NANTUCKET

at the first year of the parade were oxygen-filled and propped up to keep them standing. For the second annual parade, Sarg designed an elephant, tiger, and hummingbird. These were filled with helium and released into the sky at the conclusion of the parade. The tradition of releasing the balloons had to be halted when an airplane flying overhead the parade became entangled and nearly crashed. Sarg’s balloon creations captured the imagination of the parade audience and they have since become a treasured tradition. At the height of his fame in 1933, Sarg showcased his marionette theater to an audience of three million at the Chicago World’s Fair. In 1935, Sarg designed the elaborate New York City window display for Macy’s in addition to illustrating ads for the retail heavyweight. His creativity was unbounded: jigsaw puzzles, animated films, maps, and musical blocks were all part of his repertoire. Sarg purchased a summer house in Nantucket in the early 1920s and opened Tony Sarg’s Curiosity Shop on Federal Street, which later relocated to Centre Street and then to the corner of Steamboat Wharf and Easy Street. The annual Hospital Fête fundraiser posters were designed by Sarg at his Curiosity Shop. Sarg also created portraits of everyday life on the waterfront in his Nantucket studio. While on-island, Sarg staged an elaborate hoax sighting of a Nantucket

able to join the Nantucket Club. Most islanders would like to tell you a hard work story about their island homes. They would like to tell you that if you work hard and live frugally, you can do it here. Those people who leave just don’t have the moxie, even if they have three-and-a-half kids. They would like to tell you that they scraped together the money for a down payment, then worked three jobs and shingled the place on the weekends before they moved in when it was only studs and plastic sheets. The wife learned how to plumb the place when she was pregnant with the first child and he took a job as an electrician to get the parts for cheap. They just finished painting the kid’s room the weekend before the water broke. They still haven’t finished the baseboards in the master bedroom, but… The ugly truth is that they got help, just as I did. Islanders would rather talk about sex than money; and they will lie about both. Perhaps they got help from Grandpa Chester advancing them thousands of dollars. Perhaps someone gave them the word about 22 Weeweeder before it hit the market. Perhaps they just got some free work done. But nobody does it on his own out here. Not if they are honest. Even with all of that, luck is the rich grandfather every Nantucket householder has to acknowledge with a nod and Christmas card. Luck got you the job on-island. Luck kept you healthy. Luck kept the tourists coming. Luck kept the interest rates down and the deposit reasonable. Luck kept making appointments. Opportunity is only a phone message. You still need to show up, work hard, and pay your bills. Your work needs to command attention, respect, and top dollar. Fools don’t last long. But Opportunity isn’t calling here anymore. Most construction jobs come

June 22-28, 2017

and go on The Gray Lady III. Building lots start at $500,000, which would translate to something like a $100,000 down payment before a hole gets dug. Finally, as the older islanders pass away, the rental stock dwindles and the price increases; most of the bedrooms I have rented have been long since converted to marble kitchens and walk-in closets. What you can rent, you can’t afford. If you have to pay two-thirds of your monthly salary on rent, you won’t have too much left to save for that $100,000 down payment. In the last thirty years, the only practical solution to the housing crisis runs back and forth to Hyannis. The rest of us have a membership to the Nantucket Club. And those memberships only get more valuable (and more costly). If we really wanted to have affordable housing, the Land Bank would pave the fairways at Miacomet and sub-divide into quarter acre lots. We did a nice job building up the mini-golf course. Think about what we could do with a real one. And we won’t. Everyone who has a roof and a door has thousands of good reasons to send that poor family on their way back to the mainland. We want to keep the real estate prices high. We want to keep the housing supply low. And we want Town & Country to keep putting Sconset and Main Street on the cover. If that means that we can’t keep teachers, nurses, and policemen in anything but dormitories and ferry boat seats, that is the cost of doing club business. We will eventually get pushed out of Club Nantucket. The greens fees and membership dues will drive out everyone who doesn’t have a nicer mainland home. Eventually, we won’t make enough money for the mortgage, the electric, the cable, the heating oil, the taxes, and the dump. We will look at the pile of bills on one hand and the value of our shingled lottery ticket, and cash out. Or there will be a fire. As the young family is leaving, the boats are coming into the boat basin. Kristin, Sorcerer II, Liberty, and Young America have all pulled in for the summer from Florida, Texas, Bermuda, and Panama. Another season has begun for us. Our ships have come in, also, whether we want to recognize our good luck or not. They will go out again.

Tony Sarg from page 21

Sea Monster in 1937. The Nantucket media went along with the hoax, sighting to create public interest in what would become the unveiling of the sea serpent balloon Sarg had created for the thirteenth annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Playing into the prank, a local businessman and a local fisherman were photographed measuring prints left by the elusive creature. The department store (founded by Nantucket native R.H. Macy) anonymously backed the hoax, believing it would bring about good publicity for the island. The inflatable “Nantucket Sea Monster” washed ashore on Coatue that August to mixed reactions. Some felt that the hoax had gone overboard and depressed the island’s economy by scaring off potential tourists. Speaking to the artist’s legacy, Frazier noted, “The fact that Tony Sarg became a local legend after he engineered the sea monster hoax when he floated a huge balloon figure over from Coatue in the summer of 1937... is just one part of his eclectic background.” One of Sarg’s favorite subjects was animals. Sarg was fond of anthropomorphizing animals PHOTO COURTESY ARTISTS ASSOCIATION NANTUCKET and portraying them carrying out human actions. He brought his sense of humor, which averred that his subjects were “actors in an infinity of small comedies,” to all of his creations. In an illustrated children’s story, Sarg depicts a dog sitting astride a horse, while holding the reins. This same illustration includes Sarg’s other favorite subject: his daughter Mary. She is often included as the main character in Sarg’s children’s works. Sarg gave Mary weekly art lessons which led to her career as a portrait painter with a studio

June 22-28, 2017

Page 23

on Washington street where she taught classes and painted. Though Mary was an accomplished artist in her own right she believed she would never reach the lofty heights of her father’s mastery. Sarg’s legacy extends beyond his parade contribution. A gifted filmmaker, Sarg has the honor of five of his films being included in the Academy Film Archive, a select group of fewer than 1000 films that includes Patton and All About Eve. Considered somewhat of a rebel, Sarg defied his military education to pursue an artistic career. In this same vein, Sarg rebelled against the tacit understanding that puppeteers never reveal the machinations of their craft. Not only did Sarg demonstrate his tricks, he penned a ‘How-To’ guide called The Tony Sarg Marionette Book in 1921 instructing novices in the art of puppetry. Libby Oldham, research associate at the Nantucket Historical Association Library, shared several stories about Sarg as told by his daughter, Mary Sarg Murphy. She described her father as someone who never grew up and who “never worked a day in his life,” so enjoyable did he find his work. One of Sarg’s more elaborate pranks, as recounted by his daughter, occurred at sea during Prohibition. Sarg’s wife and daughter were en route to Nantucket when their ferry was forced to stop by a Navy boat. The passengers on board began dumping their illegal alcohol overboard, fearful that the 18th Amendment would be enforced. As the Navy boat came closer to the ferry, Mary realized that her father was on board and that he was the architect of the ruse. Those who had jettisoned their contraband did not find the prank all that funny, but the incident demonstrates Sarg’s irreverent sense of humor and whimsy. Mary speaks of another instance of Sarg’s boyish antics, which took place at the Yacht Club where he participated in a variety show. His entertaining act came at the expense of an unwitting audience member who was selected to sit for a caricature. The easel was set up so the subject saw only the back of it, but the audience was able to see Sarg at work. Sarg drew the head as it appeared on the person, but when it came to the body he would render it “a fish, or an elephant, or any animal according to the character of the person.” Mary recounts, “the audience went to pieces as the person’s face got redder and redder. It took all the aplomb of the sitter to live through that.” Sarg’s work was influenced by his joyful and prank-laden approach to life. The art on display at the Visual Arts Center Gallery honors a Nantucket transplant who captured the spirited essence of childhood and its wondrous possibilities.

What’s Invasive? from page 7

People often bring up poison ivy and green briar at this point, remembering other annoying and otherwise noxious plants. But these two are actually native to our area. As much as I hate poison ivy myself, it is a native species, so it doesn’t fall under the same category.

Garlic Mustard

So what is Nantucket doing about the invasive species problem? For one, the Nantucket Biodiversity Initiative (NBI) created the Invasive Plant Species Committee (IPSC). The IPSC is a sub-committee of the NBI with a goal to identify, track, manage, and educate the public about the island’s non-native invasive plant issues. We organize group pulling events for plants like garlic mustard and spotted knapweed. We’ve worked with the Waste Options at the Nantucket Landfill to have an invasive-only disposal area. The IPSC also does a lot of education through various island events and schools. Keep an eye continued on page 25


Yesterday’s Island/Today’s Nantucket

Vol. 47 No. 7 • YesterdaysIsland.com

out on the IPSC website for the latest sightings, new species to be aware of, and the best practices for management and disposal. What can you do? Manage your castle. For those of us living on-island, we can manage our own property (even if you rent) as if it was your castle as you were waging war on non-native invasive species. We have a “no tolerance” zone where anything invasive is pulled, clipped, and otherwise obliterated on-site and then disposed of properly. You can join a pulling event in your neighborhood. Do you have a favorite walking spot with inva- Porcelain Berry sives? Ask the landowner how you can help (remember that all most conservation land on Nantucket is private property – NCF, NLB, LLNF, etc.)! They may advise pulling, they may already have a plan in place, or they may thank you for bringing a new population to their attention. Tell your neighbors! You know how the saying goes: Good fences make good neighbors. Well, invasive plants make terrible neighbors. They don’t know where the property line is! If your neighbor has an issue, so do you. Need help talking to a neighbor? Contact the IPSC and we can help you with literature, terminology, and offer some friendly advice. Go native! Another way to limit invasive plants is to increase native biodiversity. The IPSC and the Nantucket Land Council put together a guide to planting with natives on Nantucket. You can download a copy from this site angelfire.com/poetry/bridgewaterslam/NBI_IPSC2011.html or you can pick one up at your favorite conservation organization. As an island, we have an opportunity to protect our landscapes from nonnative invasive species. Let’s not transport, plant, or propagate. Even if we all take that pledge, the birds will poop seeds, the wind will blow, and the ferries and planes will carry accidental introductions with them. We’ll just have to keep our eyes open.

Featured Restaurant: Breeze Restaurant

A New Tradition in Nantucket Dining I could see she was a bit hesitant as I helped my little granddaughter into the fire truck. She was clearly not convinced that we were supposed to be climbing into the back of this shiny red vehicle. She sat on her mother's lap and the truck took off from outside Visitor Services on Federal Street. By the time we turned onto Easton Street, she was ringing the bell and calling out "all aboard." When we pulled up to The Nantucket Hotel she didn't want to disembark, and I realized we just established a new tradition for family visits on Nantucket. It was too close to nap time for her to join us at lunch, but we did notice that Breeze Restaurant is well equipped for families with youngsters. From a Children's Menu with appealing selections, drawings to color, and a puzzle to their complimentary Kids' Deck program designed to entertain children after they dine with parents so adults can linger over dinner and dessert, this hotel restaurant is ready to offer their warm hospitality to all ages. As we walked up the steps to The Nantucket Hotel, we glanced at the arrangement of cozy chairs and tables along their front porch. It was quiet at noon, but from late afternoon into early evening this is a gathering spot with live music, cocktails, and a light menu. The doorman (a doorman is just one of the many gracious traditions this beautiful resort hotel has revived) welcomed us and opened the big double doors. Entrance to Breeze, the hotel restaurant, is a few steps through the elegant lobby. Breeze restaurant and bar were redesigned over the winter to add more enclosure to what had been patio or deck dining. Now, in addition to the indoor dining area and bar, they have a spacious terrace with huge windows and glass doors that can be opened to the fresh island breezes or closed against inclement weather. The decor is decidedly fun and summery, with wicker chairs, indoor fire pits, and potted plants. At lunchtime the terrace is bright and sun-drenched. Just beyond the dining area is their more formal Ballroom, the scene of many weddings, galas, and other special events. More than just the venue has changed: Breeze Restaurant also has a new executive chef. Chef Bill Weisse brings his island experience from The Club Car to this Easton Street eatery. "Breeze is a nice transition from The Club Car as it is fun and upbeat," he explained. "...the freedom that I have been given to create the menu has been outstanding...I Pacific Poke Bowl

[have] the opportunity to influence hot a la carte breakfast, both indoor and outdoor lunch menus, design lite bite menus for our front porch entertainment, and create a dinner menu to fill the needs of our hotel guests, Club Members, and the community. I have never had so many opportunities to create so many different touch points for my clients, Stuffed Wrapped Dates and I love it! "The lunch menu at Breeze is a combination of my personal imprint from years of cooking up and down the East Coast balanced with the more traditional items that the guests of Breeze have come know are outstanding. We have kept the Lobster Roll, The Clam Chowder, The Cod Fish and Chips, and the Three Cheese Grilled Cheese with Hot Creamed Tomato soup because our waiters insisted on having the standards that all of our repeat guests love to see on our menu. From there, I built on the menu to add fun flavors and dishes that allow for all to enjoy the open air atmosphere of Breeze." Chef Weisse let us sample two of the dishes that are not on the lunch menu but are popular on the Lite Fare Menu served from 2 to 9 pm. The Stuffed Wrapped Dates and the Crispy Fried Brussels Sprouts. We adored them both! The Dates are a perfect choice when you'd like a little something sweet but not dessert. Creamy and crunchy, sweet and savory, they are stuffed with goat cheese, wrapped with smoky bacon, and glisten from drizzles of honey. A vibrant romesco sauce adds a whisper of heat. A delicious way to eat your veggies, the Brussel Sprouts are not at all bitter. They're browned on the edges and tender inside; a sweet Thai chili sauce adds a tasty

tang to these little cabbages. One of the dishes offered both on the Lite Fare Menu and the Lunch Menu is the Sicilian Flatbread. It's listed under the entree section, but we liked sharing this alternative to pizza as an appetizer. It arrives cut into four pieces, the flatbread base soft enough to fold yet sturdy enough to support the impressive amount of toppings: salty prosciutto, sweet caramelized onions, gorgonzola and mozzarella cheeses, and fresh peppery arugula. There is also a New England version that is topped with clams, bacon, parmesan, mozzarella, and white seafood-garlic sauce. (Suggested Pairing: Whitehaven,

Fish-n-Chips

Marlborough, New Zealand, Sauvignon Blanc) There are four salads offered at lunchtime: a Breeze Salad that makes a delicious prelude, a Caesar that can be an entree if you add grilled chimichurri chicken or grilled fish or sauteed shrimp, and two entree-sized salads that we sampled. The Nantucket Cobb Salad is presented beautifully, a bed of baby field greens topped with "stripes" of smoky bacon, diced avocado, blue cheese crumbles, a mix of purple, red, and yellow heirloom tomatoes, and a half of a hard-boiled egg at either end of the deep oval bowl. It tastes lighter and healthier than most salads with this much blue cheese and bacon. Nantucket Cobb Salad The greens are dressed lightly in a buttermilk dressing that permits the flavors of all the other ingredients to shine. (Suggested Pairing: M de Minuty, Cotes de Provence, France, Rose) The Warm Chicken Salad is another delicious choice. For this salad, the tender baby summer field greens are tossed in a honey mustard dressing that clings nicely to the leaves without pooling in the bottom of the bowl. Slivers of toasted almonds and slices of scallion add crunch and a touch of heat. The sliced chicken breast is impressively moist and brings to the salad a taste of summer smoke from the grill. (Suggested Pairing: J Vineyards, California,

Pinot Noir) More than a traditional grilled cheese with tomato soup, the Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich has so much cheese that it oozed and stretched temptingly as we cut it into quarters to more easily dip it into the creamed tomato soup served alongside. And speaking of the soup: it's made in-house from tomatoes and fresh blended till it's not quite smooth. If you're not a fan of dunking, the soup and the sandwich are Warm Chicken Salad just as good eaten separately. Chef Weisse lightly coats the white sandwich bread with a blend of mayonnaise, garlic, cilantro, tarragon, basil, and parsley, then layers on cheddar and Swiss and American cheeses, and grills the sandwich till it's crispy with a light crunch. This is truly a childhood favorite grown up to please an adult palate. (Suggested Pairing: Trimbach, Alsace, France, Riesling) The lunch entrees are evenly divided between seafood selections and landlubber favorites. We've heard how good the Breeze Burger is, and we watched a woman at a nearby table enjoying a tall Turkey Club Sandwich. But we are on an island, so we opted to try three of the seafood dishes, expecting them to be very fresh. We were not disappointed!

Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich

Chef Weisse described his Pacific Poke Bowl as "sourced locally and tastefully infused with delicate flavors that leave you wishing for more." We discovered from the first forkful that his description was spot-on. Fresh tuna, its pink flesh anointed with sesame oil, shoyu, and dried seaweed, is cut into medium pieces and served deliciously cool with creamy diced avocado and crisp chilled wakame over warm rice with tiny bits of sweet carrot and ginger root stirred in. The mix of textures and temperatures makes this especially appealing, so much so that none of us wanted to pass it! A slightly different version of this dish appears on the Lite Fare Menu as the Poke Martini. (Sugcontinued on page 47

one, work best in a taller (not quite as wide) glass. Think of these accessories as the wardrobe or costume that coincides with the overall scene of the movie. You would think that a wine opener is a must as a supporting actor for this screenplay. However, that may not be the case if you are only serving Champagne or a wine with an alternative closure other than cork (i.e. screwcap or glass vino-lock). Best to have an opener on hand though just in case you need it as a last minute walk-on role based on the director’s creative discretion. There are a number of other assorted props or basic tools of the trade to consider having easily accessible if needed. A decanter can be used for dual purposes: to allow your wine to breathe before consumption or to separate the wine from any sediment build-up in the bottle. Your wine bottle should be proudly displayed on the table atop a coaster and never directly on a tablecloth. Lastly, a neatly folded serviette (small waiter’s napkin) when used properly will collect any drips from the bottle that may occur while pouring the wine.

ACTION Now is the time to show why you deserve the Best Actor for Being a Sommelier award. Let’s start with how well you have rehearsed your script. When talking about and describing the wine you are serving, it is important to note the name of the winery, the fantasy name of the wine if there is one, the region where the wine comes from, and the vintage year (or the fact that it is non-vin-

tage). If the wine is made from a single grape varietal, you must also mention this while presenting the wine. By stating the short list of items, your guest is able to confirm that this will be the wine that you intend to serve. Speak slowly and boldly enough to exude confidence in your wine selection and your sommelier skills, even if you are only acting like one. After confirmation of the wine to be served, this is where the action really leads to the climax of this wine love story. Swiftly remove the foil from the bottle of wine, gently insert the worm of your corkscrew into the cork, then gracefully extract the cork without a sound. Cue the start of the musical score that begins with the sweet, somber sound of the wine being slowly poured into the wine glass. Next, you feel the tension in the music as the wine glass is being brought to the guest’s nose for their olfactory approval, followed by the sacred swallow that either confirms or denies that this is the perfect wine. On the edge of your seat, the music suddenly changes to an upbeat allegro that signifies you have mastered your craft and hopefully endorsements will soon follow.

THE SEQUEL At the end of the meal, the credits are rolling and applause all around signifies that you were well rehearsed for your debut role acting as a sommelier. The wine did a superb job as a supporting role as well. In fact, rumor has it that your performance was so outstanding that you could possibly be typecast in a similar role for a followup star performance. Until then, cheers to enjoying a film paired perfectly with a glass of your favorite vino. Consider it research for your next acting role as a Sommelier.

gested Pairing: Cisco Whales Tale, Pale Ale) The Lobster Roll (cover photo)is another favorite of Chef Weisse. Simple and simply delicious, this version of a classic New England treat is a toasted brioche bun filled with lobster. Mostly claw meat, there is just a scattering of diced celery and red onion and only a touch of fresh herb mayonnaise. The dressing on this is so light that it's presented with additional mayonnaise for those accustomed to more of a lobster salad roll. We loved it just as it was served, with the lobster meat the star of the show. It was served with a basket of thin fries, delectably crunchy and salty. (Suggested Pairing: Cake Bread Cellars, Napa Valley, Chardonnay) We highly recommend the Fish-n-Chips at Breeze! Prepared with thick pieces of codfish fresh from the docks that he dips in a housemade Cisco Whales Tale batter and fries till golden brown, it's rarely this good. The cod comes apart in big, moist flakes, but the light crisp batter somehow stays on the fish so you get crunch in almost every bite. A cool, crisp slaw with fennel and julienne of sweet Asian pear is served alongside with a malt-vinegar version of the same tasty thin fries we enjoyed with the Lobster Roll. (Suggested Pairing: Stella Artois, Cidre) We had eaten far too well at this midday meal to even consider dessert, but bartender Laura Lanagan prepared a refreshing treat that she recently concocted for a Cisco Brewers using Triple 8 Raspberry, pineapple juice, lemonade, mint, and a rosé floater. As of last weekend, she had not settled on what to call her new cocktail, so we cannot recommend it by name, but It's the perfect refreshing beverage to toast a superb lunch and a new Nantucket tradition: luncheon at Breeze.
