Summer 2016 in Pictures

After two difficult years, this summer has made up for time I thought I already lost.  It was the first summer that I wasn’t either living or spending an extended period of time in Rhode Island—I thought I was going to be stuck in suburbia, perhaps make the occasional trip to New York City. I […]

Buck-A-Shuck at TwoTen Oyster Bar & Grill

It’s been a while since I’ve been back at TwoTen Oyster Bar in Narragansett and I was pleasantly surprised at the weekday deals they were offering. Not only were they doing the Buck-A-Shuck oysters, but there were also $5.00 martini specials. I couldn’t resist the Tinderella martini, just because of the name. I’m still figuring […]

Drinking Del’s and Trenta-sized Starbucks doesn’t hurt either.  There are some great […]

Newport/Narragansett: Thanksgiving and Small Business Saturday Haul

My family and I had a great Thanksgiving–all I have to say is that our fridge is filled with leftovers and pies. My cousin and her son joined us for dinner, and we were happy to have them. We saw Lincoln (2012) in the evening. It was a good film, but it would have been […]

Narragansett: Hurricane Sandy

My family and I have been without power for the past 21 hours–hopefully it’ll come back soon. Around 3:00 pm, the lights went out. The wind was howling, the trees bent every which way, the rain pounded on the window skylights. It was crazy. We lit candles and brought out the crank-powered emergency radio and […]

Barrington/Narragansett: Preppy Pig BBQ

My family and I went to a family friend’s BBQ in Barrington this afternoon. It was the perfect weather to be out and enjoy the early days of fall.  I honestly try to avoid eating red meat as possible, but the catering company who worked the BBQ did a great job on the brisket–it was […]
