Although summer doesn’t officially arrive until later this month it’s
here in Provincetown.  And when Miss

and Dina Martina are back you know it’s summer.

The Provincetown International Film
Festival is June 18 – 22 this year. 
Honorees include Debra Winger, Patricia Clarkson and David
Cronenberg.  For film buffs this is
the event of the year.  Movies, movies
and more movies.  Check out their schedule here.
The restaurants are open for the
season.  We’re heading to Backstreet on
Wednesday.  Other new restaurants include
MAC’s seafood which opened last fall, Tin Pan Alley across from Town Hall and
Lorraine’s which closed and then re-opened a couple of blocks from The Somerset
House Inn.  We’ll have our review of
Backstreet next week.  Part of the job of
owning a guesthouse is that we have to be able to give restaurant
recommendations.  That means we have to
try all the new restaurants – it’s a tough job!
We also have some new shops in town.  One of our favorites is Room 68.  The owners stayed with us when they were
first looking for space in Provincetown so we got to know them and now they’ve
opened a couple of spaces down Commercial Street across the street from
us.  They are across the street from
Botanica which is another one of our favorite places, they opened last
year.  The guys from Botanica also have a
great garden that keeps Dan on his toes when he tries to keep up.  The East side in Provincetown is a happening
place to be.  And when you done your
shopping at Room 68, Botanica and are heading over to Utilities you have to try
Ptown Scoop.  My new favorite is the
bourbon caramel pistachio brittle.  OMG
it is good.  And we love Coco, the owner.
With all the incredible food in Ptown and Coco’s
ice cream we need some physical activity to keep us so slim and trim.  Dan has made some major changes in the front
garden that gave him a good workout as he pulled out bushes and trees.  But, you are going to have to come visit us
to see the finished results!
We’ll give you an update more shops, galleries
and restaurants in the future.  And of
course we’ll get back to you with restaurant reviews as we eat our way through
town.  What’s going on in June and
