Five Things: Dogs And Cats But No 'Blu'
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, July 1.
Adopt-A-Pet Open House: Animals are available for viewing and adoption today with the assistance of a dedicated East Greenwich Animal Protection League member. The open house takes place at Greenwich Bay Animal Hospital from 10:30 to 1 p.m. Individual appointments are also available.
No ‘Blu’ … Yet: Despite much effort, the new restaurant opening up at the site of the former Twenty Water Street failed to gain a certificate of occupancy before the close of business Friday, so it will NOT be opening this afternoon as owners had hoped. But work there continues this weekend and rumor has it they will aim to open Tuesday, July 3. Stay tuned.
We Need Your Nominations! The new Readers’ Choice relies on reader nominations – if no one, for instance, nominates Felicia’s for Best Coffee Shop, it won’t make it in the actual contest. So, nominate your favorite coffee shop here and your favorite place for ice cream here. We have 25 categories total. My unofficial tally so far has us without nominations for these categories: Best Jewelry Store, Best Sports Bar, Best Appetizer, and Best Family-Friendly Activity. I’m going to swap them out if there are no nominations by the end of today … maybe they are dud categories for this moment and place in time. But if you do have something to recommend for any of the 25 categories, please weigh in. You’ll find the full list (with links) here. And thanks!
Art Exhibit @ Crestar: MJ Yeager and Jill McLaughlin are exhibiting their artwork through July 5 at Crestar Picture Framing in East Greenwich. The South County artists will be showing mixed media artwork with complementary abstract, dreamlike themes in their first exhibit together. Crestar is located at 51 Liberty St., behind Centerville Bank and across from the CVS drive-through window. The exhibit may also be viewed during business hours Mon. through Fri. 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sat. 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Parking is available and the exhibit is free and open to the public.
What are you doing for the 4th of July? With no parade or big fireworks here in East Greenwich, most of us leave town for at least part of the 4th of July holiday. Where do you go and what does July 4th mean to you? Let us know in the comments section. Thanks!
