The BPG takes the food part of the bill off your check, and you decide how much to donate to the charity of your choice among these three: A Safe Place, Nantucket Food Bank, or the Literacy Program of the Nantucket Atheneum. Drinks and tip are additional. Live music by P.J. Moody. Reservations are recommended at 508.325.1320.
