No cause for alarm, but it’s already July. Time really does fly, especially when you (and we!) are having fun! Don’t sweat it though, there is still time to enjoy the summer. There are lots of events and conventions on the calendar, all bringing new (and old) visitors to the area. In the blink of an eye the students will be back and the leaves will be changing colors, so let’s soak up the next couple of months.
Read on to find out what's new at the PWCVB and with you, our partners.
Providence Restaurant Weeks runs through July 20. There's still time to enjoy a three-course prix fixe lunch for $16.95 or a three-course prix fixe dinner for $29.95, $34.95 or $49.95. Restaurant Weeks is sponsored by Navigant Credit Union and Smithfield Culinary.
And don't forget to enter our Restaurant Weeks contest, with a prize including:

Experience The Generous Pour at The Capital Grille in Providence now through Sept. 1. For $28 with the purchase of an entrée, sip seven wines at the wine event of the summer. This year's Generous Pour is a celebration of the Legends of the Land, with wines connected by the renowned Jackson Family Wines.
If you haven’t been to Theatre by the Sea in a while, head there this summer. "Newsies" is on stage now and "Saturday Night Fever" is a “do-not-miss” for August. Make a night of it and dine at their restaurant, Bistro by the Sea, before the show.
