Providence Day Trip

2:46 PM

Before the new year even started, I knew among my "resolutions" for the New Year was to travel every month-- nothing crazy, just making it my mission to stay inspired by visiting new locales. I was delighted when I was invited on a boozy trip to Providence, RI last month to get a peek at one of their newest breweries and tour some of their newer dining hotspots. It had been years since I had visited and with such close proximity to Boston it's an ideal spot for a day trip or weekend getaway. I had such a blast, I'm definitely taking my boyfriend to Durk's soon for burnt ends and BBQ! Take a peek at the spots we visited, and be sure to tag me on social (@style_wire) if you visit!

Narragansett Brewery: A Rhode Island original, this 125 year old brewery recently partnered with The Guild to bring the brewery back to it's roots in Rhode Island. We sampled flights at the bar that included their newest It's About Time IPA before touring the brewery and getting a peek at their canning facility. Be sure to snag one of their sweet tee's before you leave-- my favorite Crush It Like Quint tee is almost always sold out.  

Durk's BBQ: The Texas gal in me was doing backflips when they said we were going for BBQ for dinner. And not just any BBQ, but smoked, Texas style BBQ complete with the best cornbread I've ever had and an impressive 100+ bottle selection of Whiskey, Bourbon, and Rye. Ever since our visit I've been trying to find the time to hop in the car and make the drive to Providence for burnt ends and corn bread.

The Eddy: We ended the night at one of Providence's best craft cocktail bars, The Eddy. This intimate bar serves up some amazing drinks alongside light fare. Among my favorite was the easy-drinking Gin Gin Mule (St. Terrior Gin, ginger, mint, lime) but we enjoyed sipping on several of their incredible craft cocktails before calling it a night and heading back to Boston. Next time we visit, The Eddy will be our first stop!
