Great Escape: Hair, Hockey And Homes

Music, sports, and home improvements take center stage this weekend.

For those of you looking for fun, you've come to the right place. This week, I have some suggestions for those of you looking to venture outside of Johnston in search of a good meal.

  • Mediteraneo has a well-deserved reputation among Providence's restaurants. Besides good food, you can all spend time at the new bar.
  • Cassarino's, which is a multilevel restaurant on Atwells Ave, serves great food at fair prices. That's a good combination in times like these.
  • Closer to home, we have , where you can get full without your wallet getting empty. The best part is the good food and pleasant service.
  • If just eating dinner isn't enought for you, try .  You can enjoy a live band while you're eating, and enter a beer pong tournament. How many restaurants can say that?
  • I haven't had a chance to try yet, but I have heard about them.

A nice dinner is great, but there's more to life than just eating.  For those of you looking to get up and get out, there's a wide selection of activities to choose from.
