Have a great day!

This & That
  • School Starts today for Newport Public Schools, best of luck to all those heading back to school (and you parents).
  • There will be “fireworks” at the next City Council meeting - there are three applications for firework displays, and an update to the fireworks displays ordinance on the agenda.
  • Some early lobster poll results - Karen says her favorite lobster place is Abbott’s in Noank, CT. Bob says he heads for Newport Lobster Shack when he wants a whole lobster and Easton’s Beach when he’s in the mood for a lobster roll , and our buddy Jim from Narragansett Beer reminds us to make sure we have some Narragansett Fresh Catch (which has a big ol’ lobster on the can) while enjoying lobster. Have a favorite lobster place or dish? Let us know!
