For now, I bounce from coast to coast, but I plan to die in Providence. I was student at the Rhode Island School of Design more than a decade ago, and the magic of that jewel-box of a city still pulls on my heartstrings. It’s the Victorian homes, industrial buildings, the charmingly gruff New England personalities, and concentration of Italian American markets that have kept me coming back. The town is divided by the Providence river, separating the posh, College Hill area to its east, and the grittier, fast-developing downtown, Olneyville, Federal Hill, and Atwells to the west. Most tourists will cling to the picturesque, colonial Benefit street, with its gas lamps and pristine mansions, but that’s only a tiny sliver of what the city has to offer. This place has chutzpah. It’s the blue collar dive bar and the Ivy League, it’s Mayflower meets crust punk. What other city’s most beloved mayor was a convicted felon and the face of a popular line of packaged red sauce?

…. For smaller grassroots galleries, World’s Fair Gallery is a tiny storefront next to the Columbus Theater that mounts thoughtful shows with local artists. It’s run by the owners of Little Bitte cocktails, a craft cocktail company that often pops up around town.
Join award-winning mixologist Willa Van Nostrand of Little Bitte Artisanal Cocktails for an evening of craft cocktail making inspired by turn-of-the-century cocktails. Build 2 botanical recipes alongside Willa and sample delicious nibbles inspired by historic recipes from the Museum’s collection. And, learn about the art of glass flame working from local artist Katie Corticelli of Glass Sails, and take home a complimentary handcrafted shot glass.
Preregistration required. Space is very limited!
