KEEPING DRY on the VINEYARD!
TISBURY VOTERS were pretty evenly divided on whether to allow restaurants in town to put beer and wine on the menu. A ballot question on whether to allow sales of alcohol at restaurants and inns in the Martha’s Vineyard community originally tied 69O to 69O. So those favoring the change successfuly launched an effort to get a hand recount, which resulted in a two vote victory for their opponents. Tisbury is one of more than a dozen dry towns in Massachusetts, including several on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, where there are no liquor stores or bars. Many restaurants allow customers to bring their own alcohol.
