Apr. 20: Poll, Pretty, Popular, Petrol, Potential

The last few hours of our Readers' Choice poll on best sandwich in Johnston, a new location for a local favorite, and a look back at Congressman's visit are all in your 5 Things To Know Today.

Poll: We're closing our survey on who's got the best sandwich in Johnston at 9 am this morning — so there's still time to vote. We'll announce the winner at noon.

Pretty: Today's likely to be the last sunny day for the next couple, according to the JohnstonPatch Weatherbug forecast. Highs today in the low 70s, clouding up during the overnight hours, with chance of rain beginning Saturday and continuing through at least Monday.

Popular: Nearly everyone in Johnston knows Brewed Awakenings — and now our neighbors in Cranston get a taste of the family-run outfit, which recently opened its fourth location on Pontiac Avenue, just off Rte. 37.

Petrol: Gas prices seem to be edging back from the $4-per-gallon level — see who's got the lowest prices around on our Commute page.

Potential: On this date last year, we reported on Congressman James Langevin's visit to Alpha Metal Works in Johnston to highlight the potential in Rhode Island's manufacturing sector.
