You can find her at New England Fan Fest’s wrestling convention later this month.

A couple of months ago, Johnson and Wales student Maria Kanellis finished a final exam on a break from her job while in a locker room in the United Kingdom. She was in a locker room because it was the only place she could find Wi-Fi — a necessity for getting the assignment done — and in the UK because…well,…

8 April Fools' Day Jokes in Rhode Island

Wednesday was just another day, except on social media

We’ve survived April Fools' Day here at the office and to my knowledge, no one’s office supplies have been Jello-fied, no one has walked into a wall of plastic wrap and the paid off parking ticket I’ve held onto for a prank is still in my desk, waiting to be used another day. However, Rhode Islanders elsewhere aren't shy about…

Our April issue is all about Rhode Island’s best bars and nightlife, so we went behind the scenes to make some drinks at the Revolving Door in Newport, a place where the cocktail program is as exciting as the food.

Providence, something interesting happened on Thursday. Drizly arrived. Partnering with Bottles, the alcohol delivery service is here to change the landscape of the alcohol industry forever. Okay, that’s an exaggeration but the company is making it a heck of a lot easier to get your booze.

The Bacon Burger to Top All Bacon Burgers at Chomp

The restaurant's burger patty is mixed with pork and bacon, topped with more bacon and slathered with cream cheese-based bacon jalapeno spread and bacon aioli.

I don’t usually fall into the category of “typical Rhode Islander” when it comes to driving out of my way, but I admit I hadn’t gone to Chomp Kitchen and Drinks sooner because, well, I didn’t feel like driving to Warren. But there’s only a certain amount of food porn you can look at before no distance can keep you…

The Dish: Cheap Eats at Mama Kim's New Restaurant

You know about the food truck, but did you realize that Mama Kim's now has a permanent bricks and mortar spot?

A Saturday sick at home is the worst. There goes a cherished weekend day wasted by the misery of a heavy head and an alternating stuffy and runny nose brought on by the doldrums of a no good, very stupid common cold. ‘Tis the season I guess. While stewing in a sneeze-induced haze, I left Netflix for a bit and…
