Our December Event, Wigs and Wine at Epernay!


Jenny Benzie, owner of Epernay Wines, is going to teach us the subtleties of wine tasting at her store located at 1 Beach St, Friday December 12th, from 6:30-8:30pm.


Wigs and Wine! Dress as your favorite female rockstar, or come as you are. You’re a rockstar, too! Enjoy the art of wine tasting by learning how to identify specific notes in the 4 female owned wines Epernay will be providing. Learn how to smell and taste different flavors, and even test ourselves!




Jenny is one of the few advanced sommeliers in the country, and was featured in Wine Spectator.

This event will be educational and fun, with games and door prizes. Bring your business cards!!



Parking is behind Epernay, to the right of Great Point Properties, or right on Easton St. and South Beach St.

A Warm Thank You

On Tuesday, April 15th, we held a fundraiser for Claudia Kronenberg Douty and her family at the Rose and Crown. The event once again showed just how much support there is in our tiny community when one of us is in need. Claudia had been fighting breast cancer gracefully for a few years, and her recent passing shocked us all. She was a generous and kind woman, a mother to 3 smart children, a wife, a sister, and a successful photographer on Nantucket. We want to thank everyone who participated and donated.

April Event, PASCON Fundraiser

Please join us Tuesday, April 15th at the Rose & Crown from 7-10pm.

We are holding a fundraiser for PASCON, Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket, which is “a specialized health care program dedicated to providing excellent physical, psychological, social, and spiritual care for persons with life-threatening illness and their families”. This is an organization which is helping our loved ones, and may help any one of us at any time. It’s a great cause.

If you would like to donate to our silent auction, please contact Zofia at info@petticoatrow.com.

To help spread the word, share this post, like us on Facebook and share the event poster. Thank you!


Our April 15th PASCON event was quickly converted to an fundraising silent auction to raise money for Claudia Kronenberg Douty and her family, as she had fallen ill and has since passed. We appreciate all the support the community gave for this turn, the event, and the family. Thank you.
