What's Going On In February?

I recently announced on my Events page that, beginning this month, I will no longer be updating the monthly events calendar that I had there.

Unfortunately, I just don’t have the time to do it right now, and I don't want to do something if I can't give it 100%.

Fortunately, I have an even better resource for you! If you're looking for up to date info on the best Newport RI events, check out this awesome site: really has their finger on the pulse of Newport. Whether you're looking to attend the hottest Newport clubs, check out the best live music or just find some fun family events to bring the kids to, you'll find what you're looking for here.

Hmmm....Should we stay in after the snowstorm, or head out for a mouthwatering White Horse Tavern dinner?

Of course, it's a no-brainer. Especially now that Executive Chef Rich Silvia is in the kitchen!
