White Spider Night at the Lime Kiln Dock was where it was at for the traditional Labor Day send off of the last ferry, but with more and more people visiting the island in the fall, Scott Jackson at the Goat has started Ryte Spyder Nyte (RSN), the close of the new “final end of the season.” You are welcome to stop by the Goat on Saturday evening (7ish), October 29th, for RSN and enjoy his drink specialty, a “Tom & Scary,” or other post-teenage beverage. Put it on your calendar!
