The Black Dog is a restaurant in Vineyard Haven on Martha’s Vineyard and it is a really fun place to hang out. The trick is this … you ask for a table by the window and you let the kids play around outside on the little beach by the harbor and you drink your byob wine and watch them and talk about them. Some things never change. They wave at the ferry and they pet the little black dog puppies. Then the begging starts. This year, I just might give in.
