RI Scene

Rhode Island Monthly hosted the biggest and most successful Best of Rhode Island® event ever on July 23 at the Providence Performing Arts Center. Winners and guests enjoyed food by Pinelli Marra Fine Caterers and complimentary Skyy Vodka martinis and Narragansett Beer while dancing on stage to the East Side Horns, mingling with media personalities and bidding on great auction items. The party raised more than $15,000 for ArtReach, a nonprofit organization that provides grants to bring the arts into local classrooms. A special thank you to Bank of America, Rhode Island College and Cosentino USA, who sponsored the event.

Rue D'Espoir

In 1976, Deborah Norman opened the Rue De L’Espoir as a small quiche-and-crepe bistro. “The Rue,” as it is now commonly referred to, is celebrating their 33rd anniversary of serving up an eclectic menu of what head chef Michael Koussa calls, “a little bit of everything.”
