Well, now that the Red Sox season has begun, we officially feel good about declaring it spring! Now’s the time to shake off the cobwebs of winter and get exploring – and with so many local favorites opening their doors in April, there’s plenty to do from tip to tail of the sandbar.

Just a few more of the happenings we’re looking forward to:
-The Current Quarterly, Cape Cod’s guide to local shopping, holds its spring fashion show featuring entirely local boutiques to benefit WE CAN at the Cape Cinema on April 16.
-The Truro-based Vinegrass Festival presents up-and-coming bluegrass band Cricket Tell The Weather with locals Riley Coyote at the Old Jailhouse Tavern on April 11. Sara Leketa & The Problematix will perform along with Molly Parmenter at The Island Merchant on April 12.
-At Cotuit Center for the Arts, explore the effects of climate change through an artistic lens throughout the month.
-Cape Cod Museum for Natural History has Beneath the Waves, a series of short environmental films with a focus on sharks, whales, and oysters.
-LoveLocalFest fan favorite ARTichoke celebrates their new studio and retail space in Eastham with an opening reception on April 19.

April is also Earth Month, and we’ve incorporated that theme into most of this issue. Read all about our collaboration with Cape Cod Green Drinks and Cape Cod Beer on LoveEarth Fest, which will combine our usual fun with a slightly more educational focus – definitely a kid-friendly event despite the brewery location. Our day trip to Woods Hole will introduce you to new spots to dine, chat, play and learn. And for brunch cocktail enthusiasts, Aston’s Bloody Mary Mix-Off will allow you to sample more than 20 of the best Bloody’s on the Cape while raising money for a fantastic local cause.
