Happy New Year! Now that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season has subsided, it's a good time to check in on what's new with our PWCVB partners. If you have updated rack cards or menus for the new year, please make sure the Visitor Center receives them. It is the first place that convention and meeting goers stop to find out what’s cool and what’s tasty. Do you have an event coming up? Be sure to let us know by emailing Visitor Center Manager Elise Swearingen at eswearingen@GoProvidence.com.
Providence Restaurant Weeks returns January 15-28, 2017 and will bring a lot of hungry people to area restaurants. Sign up now and make sure you get your menus in. Contact Director of Partnership Development Christine Phillips for more information at cphillips@GoProvidence.com.
Don’t forget about our yummy arrangement with the Providence Journal for our "Small Bites" video series. Learn from local chefs how to make everything from the best fried egg to an out-of-this-world pecan pie!
