Nothing But the Best

A record crowd of 900-plus turned out this year for Rhode Island Monthly’s annual Best of Rhode Island celebration. Revelers partied at the Providence Performing Arts Center, enjoying a spread by Pinelli Marra, SKYY Vodka martinis, music by the East Side Horns and a first look at this year’s 284 award winners. Even better, the bash raised more than $10,000 for ArtReach, a local arts education initiative.
