Calling all leprechauns, film buffs and music lovers: We've got your weekend right here.

This weekend offers more dining options than we would have found a few days ago: Café Moxie and the Wharf have both reopened for the season, the former with new artwork and a new menu.

Johnny Hoy and the Bluefish are at the Ritz Saturday, too, with guests Barbara Puciul and Slim Bob, I see on Facebook. (If anyone reading this knows Johnny, please encourage him to post his shows in our Events calendar too! I would recommend them in my tipsheets - I am a fan.)

Thank you, Mona, I have corrected the article. I usually don't recommend things that haven't been added to our Events calendar (marthasvineyard.patch.com/events/new) but I saw this one on a Facebook post that didn't give the location and I assumed wrong. Thanks again for the assist.
