Now for the second half of the familiarization day!
|Eyebrow on fleek.|
We had a peek at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, which was very cool.
We learned about an incredible non-profit in downtown Providence. AS220.
This wall is an example of the phenomenal artwork created through the program's participants.
Remember I noted Local 120, our dinner restaurant in part one? Well that restaurant is an example of the non-profit's for-profit businesses that help fund the scholarships and money provided to art program participants. Read more about the non-profit here because it's really a touching, incredible program.
That evening, we decided to listen to our client's recommendation and check out 10 Steak and Sushi.
This is my favorite kind of plate. Steak, potatoes, fries (just more potatoes) and a little bit of salad too. Scrumptious!
After dinner, we decided to hit up Ogie's Trailer Park which was an interesting bar. It was a trailer park themed bar with delicious cocktails and great bartending.
The next day after a quick breakfast at a local cafe, we took a walk through downtown.
All in all, Providence is an excellent city and I recommend it if you're interested in an urban city feel. There's great coffee, excellent food, countless attractions and very friendly locals. What more could you possibly want?
