It’s National Beer Day and since Rhode Island is hot on the brewing scene, we thought up the brilliant idea to help you find out which brew you would be in an alternative universe. Are you a sassy stout or a go-with-the-flow IPA? Click “Next” to find out:
H.P. Lovecraft's gravestone says it all: I am Providence.
The horror writer's eccentric novels detailing the macabre were birthed in Providence, where the somber Lovecraft was born and raised. Like many artists, his work was considered trivial at the time of its publication, but later garnered a cult following, especially his story the Call of Cthulhu.
Rhode Island has proudly embraced Lovecraft as its own, hosting a series of themed activities and festivals such as Necronomicon Providence and H.P. Lovecraft Walking Tours. There's even a Lovecraft themed shop in the Providence Arcade where you can purchase a cuddly stuffed animal version of Cthulhu to snuggle with as you sleep, if that's your idea of comforting.
It’s Thursday, which means it’s almost Friday, which means it’s almost the weekend. All this in turn means that there is an excuse to celebrate by grabbing some amigos for a drink (or two) about town, or if you’re a visitor, the perfect excuse to check out Rhode Island’s thriving bar scene.
Inspired by Rhode Island Monthly’s January edition, we created a montage of our favorite places in our small but great state. With local celebs weighing in and with stunning photography, we encourage you to hit up these locales even during these dog days of winter.
So, you’ve planned a trip to lil’ Rhody. Maybe it’s to see the mansions or lounge at the beaches, but no matter, there are a few New Year’s Resolutions you should scribble down before your trip (and yes, we realize this trip probably won’t be until the Coppertone wafts strong and the icy winds dissipate– but it’s never too early to plan ahead, right?).
