Alright, it’s finally summer! Here's to tan lines and iced coffees. The PWCVB is looking forward to a number of conferences and conventions coming in this summer, so be sure to check the Convention Calendar to be prepared. This month is jam packed and we couldn’t be happier. We know you share the feeling. Read on to find out what's new at the PWCVB and with our partners.

Providence Restaurant Weeks

As you know, Rhode Island has direct flights with Norwegian Airlines to (and from!) Ireland, Norway and Scotland out of Green Airport. We’ve had the pleasure of hosting a few of our Irish industry partners and look forward to a lasting relationship between the destinations. We will reach out to you about packaging and contesting as we move forward.

Providence Restaurant Weeks is in full swing, now through July 22 with nearly 100 participating restaurants. Enjoy three-course lunches available for $16.95 and dinners for $29.95 or $34.95, as well as two-for-one specials. Thank you to our sponsor, OrderUp. Read here for our "Five Reasons to Enjoy Restaurant Weeks." 

The PWCVB is running a Restaurant Weeks contest through next week with a pretty sweet prize. We're giving away an overnight at the Omni Providence, tickets to Elvis Costello & the Imposters at PPAC and a gift card to Tavolo. Thank you to our partners on this great prize package.

Keep adding those events to our online calendar. It may take up to seven days for your event to be posted on our website, so plan accordingly. Limit descriptions to 180 characters if possible. If you have any questions, please contact CRM Database and Research Coordinator Beth-Anne Tremaine.

Partner Update
Fathers Day Kayak

The Hampton Inn in Pawtucket is nearly ready, we are all excited for another addition to our lodging options. Check out the PWCVB Partner Facebook page for awesome photos of the progress.

According to my friend, this is the best time of year to get out and golf. Head on over to Hillside Country Club and tee up (or hit the spa!) or Harbor Lights (and stop by for a dip in the pool). Don’t forget that both are open for parties and events.

Our friends over at Providence Kayak Company recently had their first "sold out day" in their inaugural season. See what all the buzz is about and check it out for yourself. You may even learn something while working on your triceps.
