At a loss for a fun outing for you and your friends in Rhode Island? Consider one of these ideas the next time you gather friends together and need to do something other than the mundane “drinks and apps” at the local.
Drag Brunch- Becoming increasingly popular, drag brunches are offered at several Rhode Island restaurants. Join some local “celebrities” for hours of fun, laughs, and entertainment. These events often have themes, with performers dressing for a specific decade, or as various versions of the same celebrity! Audience members are encouraged to interact, talk with, and tip the performers. Be sure to check for these events and more at local restaurants in RI!
PPAC Show- Always an experience, a show at Providence Performing Arts Center may have just enough drama, action, and singing to keep every one of your friends entertained. From musicals, to fairy tales, to one-man shows, PPAC has them all. Check out the shows coming this season, and book tickets for you and a friend. Attend a matinee and make dinner reservations after at one of Downtown Providence’s popular restaurants.
Festival Ballet- Although normally popular at Christmastime, Festival Ballet Providence offers shows throughout the year (not just The Nutcracker!) Ballet is an age-old tradition that has continued to develop into modern times. New adaptations of old stories are being presented in fun and exciting ways. Visit Festival Ballet’s website for a description of their latest shows!
Rock Climbing- Looking for something a bit more active to do? Rock Spot Climbing has you covered. Whether it is your first time, or you are a climbing pro, Rock Spot’s locations have ever-changing routes based on your ability. Shoe and harness rentals are available, as well as chalk bags. Venture out of your comfort zone, clip in, and head for the top of the rock wall!
Play Trivia- Another popular event that usually happens at local pubs and bars, trivia is a great way to get the gang together and test your uncommon knowledge! There are several team competitions held throughout the state, with weekly events happening all over. Music trivia in your wheelhouse? There are games specific to this knowledge.
