awww...I'll pop on over to the RI thread once and a while and visit you. Do you live near where that club fire was? I haven't heard anything about that in a while. I'm sure it's the talk of the town so to speak in your neck of the woods. What's the latest scoop?

It's a small state... I live close to everything.



Well, right now people are super pissed about that band having a benefit concert for the victims. It seems fake.. after playing the blame game and all that.

Rhode Island is neither a "road" nor an "island". Discuss!!!

Hi Rhode Island! I'm in CT, but on the other side.



I went to college with a kid from Rhode Island (East Greenwich) and we used to bust on him and jump from one foot to the other saying, "In Rhode Island, out of Rhode Island. In Rhode Island, out of Rhode Island". (Of course, CT is not much bigger... I don't know what I was thinking!)



Anyways, I love Rhode Island! Have been there a few times and it's very pretty.

It'll be a popular state with no population.

I grew up in both Saunderstown and North Kingstown, RI. My family lives there, so I visit often. I live in MA now. I moved here for college and never got around to moving back to RI! I figure that I'm close enough! I do miss the beaches, though!

you're not the only one vicky i've lived in providence my whole life, though i'm in my last year of college in worcester, MA. the garden grille is very yummy, i go there with my sister and her boyfriend (who are both vegans as well) almost every time i come home from school. ive been meaning to go there for breakfast some day as i hear its wonderful, but i've yet to get the chance.

well, with any luck, after college i'll be going straight into a graduate school to study veterinary medicine. if that happens, theres no telling where im going to move to, but it wont be providence since theres no vet schools there. but if i dont manage to get accepted to any vet schools this year, i may move back to providence for a while and reapply to graduate schools again next year. i think i started to appreciate providence a lot more after being away from it so much (and certainly because of the fact that worcester is such a crap-hole of a city...heh) and ill definetly miss it when im not living there anymore.



and i went to classical high school, what about you?

...just thought i'd let my fellow rhode islanders know of a new, all-vegan restaurant that just opened in providence called Vegan Eden. the menu looks absolutely wonderful, though i've yet to go there yet (hopefully soon)...you can check it out here .



(if you read this ms. vicky, i tend to come home to providence on weekends...if you ever have an urge to meet up, this seems like a nice place to do so, so let me know )

heyyy

good to know there is a new vegan place ! i wouldn't mind checking it out, i'll talk to D, i'm sure he wants to see you too.

hmm only how come a vegan place has shrimp ? .... and they name a lot of meat, i'm assuming those are the substitutes right ?
