Deck 84: Mix some exercise with new summer dishes
Here’s the best way to indulge and not feel guilty—join trainer Bill Dorton in an hour-long boot camp with check-in at Deck 84 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. the last Sunday of every month (that means July 30), then finish with brunch from 10:30 a.m. till 2 p.m. That way you can use the brunch discount card you get when you finish the boot camp. Sounds like a plan to me. And a great way to start a Sunday. To register for the workout, go here.

PB Catch: National Oyster Day means a two-for-one special
On Aug. 5 you can celebrate National Oyster Day at the island’s PB Catch restaurant with a two-for-one special on all oysters all evening. There will also be special oyster dishes on the menu that day. I recommend a nice crisp white wine with your oysters—a viognier or vouvray is usually my choice. Oysters and wine are the perfect dinner!
