I am a Central NY girl. through and through. But I live in Massachusetts… And I eat in Rhode Island. At least if I can help it!
I clearly could go on. Oh, but I will! I am lucky enough to be going on April 28 – May 1, 2016 for the Fifth Annual Eat Drink RI Festival thanks to the generous people at Eat Drink Rhode Island. I have secured tickets in exchange for some blogging food porn and information sharing. I will be going to the Grand Tasting on Saturday the 30th! I can’t wait to share all.the.food ~ and awesomeness of Rhode Island’s most talented Bartenders & Chefs!
