Ready, Set, Swap! Barrington Farm School hosts a one-of-a-kind community exchange featuring plants You’ve probably heard of a book swap, but what about a plant swap? On June 1, Barrington Farm School is kicking off summer garden-style. The all-volunteer educational farm school engages the community in enjoying the town’s only farm through events like painting in the farm field, cover cropping workshop, garden bed preparation short course, organic compost pickup, and routine farm stands. “We were inspired by the community’s active flower and plant questions and offers of advice and garden equipment from neighbor to neighbor,” explains Candace Clavin, volunteer and educator at BFS.

The rules are pretty straightforward. Bring your plant, which can be anything from an annual, perennial, or wildflower to potted varieties, bulbs, or seeds. It must be in a container, whether it’s a used pot, butter dish, or recycled yogurt cups. The containers must be labeled with as much info as possible, like the name, light, soil and water requirements, and a short description. Candace says this is just the first of many sharing events to come for “our tiny treasure of a farm and farm stand.” Barrington, BarringtonFarmSchool.org -Megan Schmit

Able Seaman For over 20 years, Sail to Prevail has taught sailing to students with disabilities In 1982, Paul Callahan started an innovative program in Newport – Sail to Prevail, which provides “therapeutic sailing” instruction to people with disabilities. Since then, more than 21,000 amateur sailors have taken the helm. Such disabilities are wide ranging; some have Down syndrome, epilepsy, or terminal cancer. Many have physical disabilities – including Paul himself, who slipped on a wet floor in college and was paralyzed from the chest down. “Since my accident,” says Paul, who gets around by electric wheelchair, “I have a better understanding how much it means to share these things that I’ve been able to accomplish – like going to the Paralympics or working for Goldman-Sachs in New York. Sailing is just a wonderful way to

drive some of these things that I’ve been fortunate enough to experience through this modality.” This summer, more than 1,000 more children and adults will learn the art of sailing through specially outfitted, 20-foot vessels. Paul insists that the adaptive equipment is actually fairly simple, and many students remove helpful elements as they master certain skills. “We’ve used this same technology for more than 20 years,” Paul says. “It starts with standard levers and lines, anything you would find in a physics book. While a newer boat may have great technology, it also takes away from the necessity of the disabled person to do the work themselves. The idea is to make it safe and enjoyable,

but equally important is to challenge their limits as an individual or as a team.” Sail to Prevail already partners with 26 different organizations, and two additional operations take place on Nantucket and in Cambridge, Massachusetts, thanks to the Harvard Varsity Sailing Team. But after so many years of instruction, Paul and his team are starting to study their own methodology. In years to come, Paul hopes to expand the program to far-flung communities. “We’re going to start to understand why [the program] has worked, so we can share it with other programs around the country,” he says. “We’re trying to prove – academically – why it’s been so successful.” SailToPrevail.org -Robert Isenberg

Dance the Day Away

Zumba class with a special purpose will raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association Fatima Devine met her husband of 44 years, George, at a URI campus party when they were freshmen. He was the cute rock musician, she recalls, but also easy-going, kind, and generous; it was these qualities that defined their relationship. He encouraged Fatima, at age 55, to start taking Zumba classes, and accompanied her to training in Boston when she decided to become an instructor. “I have been teaching Zumba ever since, and realize that was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life,” says Fatima. “It keeps me in good shape physically, and even more importantly, is great for managing the stress of coping with George’s Alzheimer’s.” George, a retired musician and teacher of 30 years, was recently diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. Fatima’s transition into the role of caregiver hasn’t been easy;

she recounts the stress and exhaustion that comes with not only the physical symptoms of the disease, but the many medical appointments and tests that follow. “My experience has been positively affected by George’s continued easy-going nature, as well as his commitment to doing everything he can to fight this disease,” says Fatima, detailing his participation in clinical trials at Rhode Island Hospital as well as a healthy diet and exercise routine. She adds, “We both also use humor to deal with everyday stressors, which is an essential stress management tool.” On June 15, Fatima will be using her love for Zumba to honor her husband and those affected by Alzheimer’s through a special class at Sandywoods, which Fatima says has generously waived the rental fee and is

assisting in the event’s promotion. The beginner-friendly class will be followed by tea and pastries and a raffle for fun prizes. The money raised will go towards Fatima’s participation in The Longest Day, a global fundraiser to advance the care, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. “Today, over 35 million people across the world are living with Alzheimer’s, including more than 5 million Americans,” says Fatima. “In the US alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia.” She urges, “Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer’s disease that they are not alone.” For more information, register to attend, or give a donation, visit Act.Alz.org/GoTo/ ZumbaWithFatima.

Clear Winners Warren’s wastewater treatment plant receives excellence award from the EPA

You don’t hear much about wastewater treatment. Most people don’t even know where their local facility is. How does all that raw sewage magically transform into clear river water? What happens to the contaminants? And dear lord, what must it smell like? “It’s not easy, what these guys do,” says Bill Patenaude, principal engineer for the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM). “They’re heavily regulated. There’s a lot of self-monitoring. It’s the day-in-day-out grind that we felt needed to be acknowledged.” For years, Bill has been an outspoken advocate for wastewater treatment plants. When facilities run smoothly and environmental standards are met, he wants managers to know how appreciated they are – and this year, the facilities in Westerly and Warren both won awards for excellence from Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The Boston branch of the EPA requests nominations every fall. Each state is responsible for nominating its best facilities, and any wastewater treatment plant in New England is eligible. But for its size, Rhode Island has received a conspicuous number of awards over the years, and 2018 was a typical example: Out of 519 facilities in the region, only five received awards, and two were ours. This is an impressive record, considering we only have 19 plants in the whole state. “Wastewater treatment plants don’t get any of the respect that they should,” echoes Justin Pimpare, Regional Pretreatment Coordinator for the EPA. “But I think the award is something to shoot for. Having a clean environmental record is huge.” What makes a wastewater treatment facility so excellent? Consistency. In smaller communities, a plant may be run by town employees or by a private company; either

way, teams are small, and they must deal with enormous volumes of water and waste. The machinery is massive and complex, and workers must be versed in engineering, chemistry, microbiology, and – of course – hydrology. The water never stops flowing, and neither do the responsibilities. “It isn’t a glamorous job,” says Nick DeGemmis, superintendent of the Westerly plant. “It’s not for everybody. I’ve known guys who started working one day and quit before their first coffee break.” “It all comes down to the interest and desire of the community to properly fund and operate their wastewater facility,” says Bill. “They have a lot of demands on them, and we understand that. It comes down to local pride, and local interest in clean water. For [the workers] to achieve that so humbly and quietly – we didn’t want them to be humble any more.” Westerly -Robert Isenberg

Some might say print is dying, but for Cate Cote-Martel, owner of a quiet bookstore in Barrington, that is far from the truth. The Book Nerd opened on April 14 with no shortage of fanfare: henna tattoos, cupcakes, Harry Potter trivia, and a ribbon cutting ceremony. It wasn’t just a welcome party for Maple Avenue’s newest addition, but a celebration of Cate’s labor of love. “I always wanted to have a bookstore,” Cate says simply. The retired East Providence teacher is also a self-proclaimed “book nerd” herself, and decided to share her love for the printed word in the form of a used bookstore, which Barrington did not have. The Book Nerd sells used and collectible books (sourced from book sales and the community), plus vintage tea pots and English Yorkshire tea (since, Cate

laughs, she loves drinking a cup of tea when she reads). The shop is personalized to be whimsical and fun, but appropriately bookish, with a 221 Baker Street sign, bright turquoise walls, shelves built by her husband and painted by local high schoolers, and a pink flamingo sporting reading glasses, the store’s mascot. While at time of press, the store had only been officially open for two weeks, the response had been overwhelmingly positive. “The people that come in are so interesting,” Cate says. She recalls meeting the head of Memorial Hospital, a local YA author, and an 80-year-old couple, the husband of which helped Cate stock the shelves with books. Each one has also helped drive even more customers to The Book Nerd through word of mouth. Cate

She plans to convert the overflowing backroom into a space for cribbage tournaments and a music class for youngsters, taught by a friend and music teacher. She will start a Saturday morning book club for third through fifth graders, in addition to the two book clubs that formed in May.

“I want to work” was an overwhelming response from Mt. Hope High School and Met School students who completed The Skiff School held in recent summers at Dan Shea’s Bristol Boat Company. The five-week boat-building Governor’s workforce program, which was administered by the RI Marine Trades Association and sponsored by Herreshoff Marine Museum, featured a curriculum created and taught by Dan. His answer to these young people: Apprentice Saturdays.

A Bristol resident since 2003, the renowned boat builder and restorer felt an obligation to provide real work and mentorship that he felt he benefited from when he started as a joiner in the early 1970s with the famed Wisconsin’s Palmer Johnson Yachts. During his 30-year career, he rose to General Manager, overseeing 200 tradespeople and a monthly payroll of a million, and managing as many as three custom yachts being built at any one time.

BLITHEWOLD Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum

The high school students came to me separately asking for more work and time in the boat shop. I could hardly say no. So, over the winter, every Saturday was our Apprentice Shop day. They do the painting and varnishing that I taught them is the finish work, which has to be very nice for our customers. The students even come in on their own after school and get to work. It was such an organic growth from the educational experiential learning transitioning to the real world: real learning, real working, and real earning. At Palmer Johnson, it was about providing opportunities for people to do their best work, and I felt that responsibility to provide that for these young people. The boat owners really respond to these young apprentices that are working on their boats. We meet the family, transport their boat, students do the estimates, get materials, work on it… It’s a big responsibility and a special experience. [At press time] we are in the midst of doing all the spring work to maintain our growing fleet of restored Herreshoff built boats. We are also finishing the reconstruction of one of the ‘original’ 12’s from 1914. The challenges in this world for young citizens in high school, wow – there are a lot of things they have to deal with. One thing I have appreciated is discovering what are the generation cues and general anxieties and what do they need. I’ve never mentioned phones. They never bring them out except to cue up the music, which we have on all the time. Being on this street there is a responsibility to be an accomplished boat builder. You have to know what you’re doing. This is like doing it in front of God, so you don’t want to screw it up.

RHODY GEM

Daisy Dig’ins Off The Rack Discount Store We are pleased to introduce Rhody Gem, a new monthly column in The Bay Magazine. We’re always being thanked for spotlighting the “hidden gems” of the state, and in our ongoing efforts to leave no stone unturned, we’re putting the call out to our readership! Each month we’ll spotlight a Rhody Gem: a business, artisan, or place lead to us by our faithful readers. What it is: You may know Daisy Dig’ins, the adorable gift and flower shop, but did you know about their sale store? Daisy Dig’ins Off The Rack carries discontinued product from the main store to stay organized and decluttered.

What makes it a Rhody Gem? Lois Cottolino, owner of Daisy Dig’ins, used to have a tent sale in August for discontinued merchandise. One year, she rented out business space for the sale and it just seemed right to make the location permanent. As Lois says, “Mostly everybody can find something.” This store gives customers a chance to pick up amazing deals on perfectly good product. When the main store runs down to one or two of a particular item, it is sent off their Off The Rack location and marked down for shoppers looking for a bargain.

ITCHER PERFECT Easy preparation and local ingredients make sangria the party beverage of choice

By Robert Isenberg • Photography by Brandon Harmon

Sangria is the ultimate party drink. It’s classy, it’s tasty, and it fits almost any occasion. Created in Spain, this festive punch is a host’s go-to beverage, no matter what the weather or time of year. Sangria can also be easy to make: Chop up your favorite fruits, toss them in a pitcher of wine, and maybe mix in some fruit juice and spritzer. Voila! Your back-porch dinner party is a hit! You can also take your sangria to the next level – and better yet, use a medley of Rhode Island ingredients. Gooseneck Vineyards has some lively reds for the task, and local rum doesn’t get better than small-batch maker White Dog Distilling. The finishing touch is Yacht Club soda, which could be Pineapple, Orange Seltzer, Fruit Punch, or any number of other flavors.

12+ ways to pregame Independence Day in America’s most patriotic town

For 233 years, Bristol has celebrated the Fourth of July. Ever since Reverend Henry Wright founded the celebration in the late 18th century, Bristol has become an annual epicenter of national pride. Rev. Wright himself was a veteran of the Revolutionary War, which had ended only two years earlier. To compare, the Bristol Fourth of July Celebration is nearly four times as old as the state of Alaska. As every resident knows, this diehard tradition is just one reason Bristol has been called “the most patriotic town in America.” All year long, tourists marvel at the red, white, and blue paint that divides traffic and the colonial architecture that graces the town center – just a glimpse into Bristol’s true colors that explode on Independence Day, when hundreds of thousands flock to local sidewalks to take in that legendary parade. “We’ve got it down pat,” says Michele Martins, chairman of the parade, with a knowing chuckle. “Pretty much we’re duplicating what has worked in the past.” The Bristol Fourth of July Celebration lasts three weeks, starting on Flag Day and ending with a spectacular fireworks show on the evening of July 3. In between, you can partake in concerts, competitions, ceremonies, and even the Fourth of July Ball. Here’s a sampler of the events you can cheer for this month.

No parade would be complete without its tiara and sash. Find out who will be named Miss & Little Miss Fourth of July at the 69th annual pageant (May 26) at Mount Hope High School Auditorium. Yes, kids still race stock cars built out of wood boxes, and they’re still a blast to watch. Catch the Orange Crate Derby on June 9 on Bayview Avenue. The Celebration officially begins on June 14: Bristol celebrates Flag Day with music, a special ceremony, a proclamation from Town Crier Michael Reilly, and an epic raising of the flag, complete with speeches and a live choir.

The Fourth of July Ball takes place early on in the festivities (June 16), and attendees can celebrate in style at the Rhode Island Veterans Home. Show off your formalwear, enjoy a cocktail hour, witness the Grand March, and cut a rug with the DownCity Band. Browse for gifts and souvenirs among 30 stalls at the Summer Craft Fair, hosted by the First Congregational Church on June 22.

The Bristol Stomp (June 15) was a popular block party back in the 1950s and ‘60s, but the tradition went dormant for decades. Revived in the past couple of years, the Stomp actually has a unique dance style named after it.

Explore Bristol on foot – for 13.1 miles – as part of the Independence Rhode Race (June 29). Racers run along the water, all the way through Colt State Park, and finish at Independence Park in the middle of town. Turn viewing fireworks into a night-cation by enjoying them from out on the water.

THE BRISTOL FOURTH OF JULY CONCERT SERIES The Fourth of July is a time of pomp and pageantry, and one of the most essential ingredients is music. Our nation is the birthplace of jazz, blues, bluegrass, hip hop, and rock and roll – and there’s no better way to celebrate the American spirit than with its spectrum of homegrown musical styles.

COLDWELL BANKER My personal style is somewhat eclectic. I can get down with a black T-shirt and black pants or layer pattern on pattern. It really depends on my mood or the company I’ll be in. I enjoy natural fibers more than synthetics; however, there are moments where I find myself in a faux fur item sans regret. I feel most comfortable in a pair of boardshorts and T-shirt, and love a cotton or merino wool sweater right on the skin. I’m a fan of the banded collar on men’s shirting and am newly enjoying a collection of elastic waist pants. In the summer, I dress a bit more Mediterranean/beachy with shorter shorts and lightweight button-down shirts, while in the winter I go for more layers of cotton and linen in variable lengths. I like that I can combat the winter by wearing a summery item underneath, even if nobody else sees it. I enjoy a good thrift. Nice quality garments hold their value and can be purchased at a much lower price after they’ve been previously worn. I buy basics at Uniqlo and get the majority of my items one piece at a time. The more quality items I collect, the less shopping I need, as they tend to last both in relevance and durability. I’ve also been having more items made under my own private label and considered starting another line of clothing with a close friend. The samples from these projects have yielded a nice collection that I rotate into my daily outfits and one of the reasons I started Island-Boy. I found it impossible to find anything for men at the mall that is not J.Crew. There’s a ton of nicer clothing out there, and I wanted to see if I could bring it to Rhode Island. I enjoy my Instagram feed very much and follow fashion brands to keep current on trends. I also take notes from other industries such as home, food, and photography. Making sure to ask people where they got their clothes from is a great way to learn who shops where and what is available in the world. Lately, I’ve been focused on groundup textiles: items with a particularly interesting dye process or weaving pattern are standing out to me. I love that opportunities are available here; I can bring brands into my shop that are not represented here yet. The proximity to water and beaches add another layer of culture to the New England vibe, which I really enjoy.

The Bay • June 2019

Let’s just start by clarifying that gong baths do not involve water of any kind – no tub, no sybaritic soaking, no bubbly indulgence. That knowledge aside, I had no idea what to expect when I arrived at Innerlight Center for Yoga & Meditation in Middletown for one of the center’s quarterly gong baths. Walking in the darkened studio on a Sunday evening, I saw bodies scattered about, all tucked down into layers of blankets (thankfully fully clothed, despite the “bath” moniker) as if settling in for a long winter’s nap. Following the others, I rolled out a yoga mat and grabbed four blankets: one to spread over the mat, one to act as a bolt under the knees, and two to snuggle under. I quickly realized this was going to be a more meditative experience than I thought and I was psyched – I’m much better at laying like a log than elevating myself via crane pose. Jess Elliott introduced herself in a calming voice and nearly half of the room joined me when she asked how many of us were first timers. She explained that we should be sure we had enough support underneath us as laying

on the floor for 45 minutes sounds easy but can err on the side of uncomfortable if not properly prepared. She also said it was perfectly normal to fall asleep and that she didn’t mind a few snores here or there. With that, everyone lowered flat to the floor and Jess instructed us to set our intention for the session. Soon, Jess’s meditative instruction was replaced by the tapping of the gong. I guessed the “bath” might be a series of gentle, repetitive taps, but instead, the taps crescendoed into loud, echoing gong vibrations. The remainder of the class was a series of vibrations ranging from soft, melodic “swirls” to thunderous, deep booms. Each moment that passed by seemed to beg the body to relax fully and invite a profound sense of calm to pulse throughout our bodies, allowing us to enter a meditative state. This doesn’t mean fleeting thoughts like what I had in the house to make for dinner didn’t cross my mind, but by in large, the dramatic experience left me both energized and mindful at the same time. Namaste.

ARE GONG BATHS FOR YOU? WHO SHOULD CONSIDER GONG BATHS: Anyone! All ages any folks at fitness level will experience the benefits of this practice as research has shown that gong baths promote relaxation and put a person into a deeper state of consciousness, which sets the environment for healing. Considering all you have to do is lay there and relax, anyone can soak in the benefits, and they’re an especially good method for anyone who is interested in meditation but struggles getting through silent meditation.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Jess says the experience is usually “profound” and unique to the individual: a person may feel relaxed or energized, heavy or weightless, may see color, images, memories, or have insights during the bath. The benefits of a gong bath can last up to two weeks – it is certainly a powerful experience. WHAT TO BRING: Yoga mats are supplied but you can bring your own. Many people use supplied blankets as a pillow, but bring one from home for added comfort. Bring an eye mask or something to lay over your eyes for complete darkness.

Why invest in summer learning? Because giving every Rhode Islander the tools they need to participate in building a strong economy is a smart investment in our future. And Rhode Island’s future is learning today. When students participate in out-of-school programs, including summer learning, they attend school more often, do better in school, and are more likely to graduate. (Afterschool-Alliance)

Life of Riley

Photos by Mark Lohman, styling by Fifi O’Neill

A Bristol artisan outfits her cottage with vintage vavoom

Carol Riley is busy. A self-described maker, she designs clothing, accessories, and decor using vintage and new fabrics, salvaged trimming, and notions under her “Tatters” label. She upcycles the occasional piece of furniture; and is currently at work transforming an old church into her own boutique. Says Carol, “I’m hoping it will be a destination spot for anyone that loves things that are a bit different and one of a kind.” Carol and her husband Michael are known around town for their perfectly named bed and breakfast, Bristol Cottage. The Rileys have lived in the 1946-built Cape for 25 years. Carol was instantly drawn to the architectural

myself. I will confess – it’s a total mess – not fit for public viewing.” While the studio may be “unfit,” the rest of the house has received national attention, once profiled in a Boho Style magazine spread. “Vintage Eclectic, with a little Shabby Chic thrown in,” is how Carol describes her aesthetic, noting that her choices can be “totally contradictory.” In rooms throughout the home, Carol sets a creamy backdrop for a riot of colorful prints – in similar tones – on textiles, resulting in spaces that are lively, not busy. Says Carol, “I swing between all neutrals... and then mad colors!” With its timeworn furnishings and floral accents, the cottage has a relaxed welcoming feel but none of the quintessential trappings generally found in a home so close to the water. Carol muses, “I don’t like the coastal look to be honest, you

know, anchors and lobsters are just not my thing.” Instead, elements like the casual simplicity of open shelving, washable slipcovers, piles of pillows, and splashes of aqua blue on everything from furniture to the enclosed porch ceiling lend a breezy waterside vibe. While Boho and Vintage might be trending design terms, Carol says that she’s always decorated in this way. “My style has stayed pretty much the same. Thrift shops and found items.” When asked what she likes best about this style, Carol states, “the ease of living with it. Unpretentious.”

Want your home featured in The Bay magazine?

CURB APPEAL Take a second look at old wooden pieces of furniture on the side of the road, in a resale shop, or in your own home. A little cleaning and few brushes of paint could render a shabby masterpiece. SOMETHING OLD Carol likes to “make the rounds” at local thrift shops to see what’s new; she also recommends Bristol’s Hotpoint Emporium, where she is a vendor. BRIGHT IDEA Rather than a traditional lamp shade, Carol does things like outfit the wire frame with vintage trimming. MIX MASTER By sticking to a limited palette, textiles in various prints and patterns can work together in a cohesive way.

Food & Drink EXPERIENCE

A Veritable Feast

There are probably very few places where you can play music trivia with a man who goes by the name DJ Big Mike while also hunker down on a thick Portuguese steak. Paquette’s Family Restaurant is one of them. Located on 315 Waterman in East Providence, its baby blue exterior shines

Paella, Spicy Garlic Shrimp

brightly, heralding a dizzying – and glutinous – array of Portuguese-American and Italian-American dishes. Walking in under a stone-encrusted podium and past the bar filled with a flock of customers gabbing away, you are pleasantly overwhelmed. Bright red tablecloths pop in the

dining room with napkins folded crisply inside wine glasses, and vines decorating the walls. The best way to describe it: The pleasant kitschiness of a Poconos honeymoon resort meets the gleaming fecundity of the Azores. My friend and I were hungry, so we sat down, opened the expansive menu, and were suddenly overwhelmed by options. The appetizers called to us: Portuguese stuffed quahogs, Theo’s spanakopita pie, chourico flambe, garlic shrimp, portuguese clams, wings. For folks looking for healthier options, the pear and gorgonzola salad and spinach salad with apples, cranberries and some incredible concoction called “bacon vinaigrette” seem stellar. It just wasn’t a salad kind of day. The pizza immediately beckons. With unconventional toppings like loaded potato, shrimp mozambique and even a buildyour-own option, we agreed that a pizza would be necessary. The fish, too, tempted us, with dishes like pan-seared salmon, sole francaise, bacalhau and seafood casserole. Next came the meat: Portuguese steak, surf ‘n’ turf, smothered steak tips, and grilled pork chops. Gleaning over the designated Portuguese and Italian sections, we made mental notes about the chicken mozambique, paella, risotto, eggplant parm, and chicken marsala. For pasta, the shrimp scampi, ravioli, and linguine with clam sauce were particularly tempting. The pizza was rich and flavorful. A tasty flatbread topped with roasted red pepper, kale, and chourico, we decided to take what we couldn’t finish home to make room for the rest of our feast. A few minutes later, our main course arrived. We ordered eggplant parm that was larger than my head, the shrimp risotto, and a

Portuguese Steak, with soup and salad

Portuguese steak topped with ham, a fried egg, and a side of fries. The steak was cooked well and bursting with the flavor of the sauce and fried toppings. The risotto was light and tasty, a perfect counterbalance to the richness of the steak and the cheesy eggplant. After a few bites, though, we realized that the restaurant would be offering some entertainment. Every Tuesday night a DJ hosts a music trivia game where customers have to guess the name of a song after ten seconds. A few stumped us. But my friend, a former 95.5 WBRU emcee, was extremely helpful. As we took our last few bites before throwing in the towel to our indulgent meal, we listened to ten-second bytes of Smashmouth and Rihanna, and asked for a box. Or several.

There’s a reason why “breaking bread” with complete strangers can make you close friends by the end of the meal. Food breaks down barriers, it gives people something to talk about, a commonality. That’s why when Jordan Sawyer decided to buy and renovate Bristol Oyster Bar, he opted for a warmer environment and made tweaks to the menu that were more “share friendly.” Can you blame him? Oysters, especially during the summer in the Ocean State, are like catnip for native Rhode Islanders and visitors alike. Who wouldn’t want to sidle up to the bar and share a buck-a-shuck with their closest friends? While working at Bristol Oyster Bar, Jordan knew that he wanted to open a restaurant in the Bay region, somewhere between Warren and Bristol. But, when he thought about the rapport he had with customers and knowledge about day-to-day operations of the oyster joint, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to capitalize. He then approached the previous owner about taking it off his hands.

“I considered my knowledge of Bristol Oyster Bar’s day-to-day operations, relationships with our guests and staff, and saw that as a significant advantage...I wanted to renovate to make the restaurant my own.” As for the product, Jordan says that he likes to keep things strictly local. The restaurant sources different varieties of oysters from his own Aquidneck Oyster Farm, but the majority of their shellfish comes from the Ocean State Shellfish Coop. Says Jordan, “We only buy and sell Rhode Island oysters. Rhode Island has the best oysters in the world, and we like to support our local farmers.” As for the pricing of the oysters themselves, the restaurant will still be doing dollar oysters on certain days. However, Jordan notes that not all of his product will be priced equally. The new owner has “compromised,” pricing more expensive varieties of the shellfish at two dollars on designated dates.

Décor by the Sea at One Decade Down! You know that place – almost every small town or neighborhood enclave has one. The restaurant you know is your good ol’ reliable. The eatery that has something for your whole family – sophisticated dishes to satisfy hungry parents, and elevated burgers and fries for a child’s elementary palate. For the inhabitants of Barrington, Billy’s Restaurant is the community go-to. Now, celebrating its 10th anniversary, owners Barbara Genetti and Elaine Hess are excited and committed to keeping the warm, friendly atmosphere of Billy’s going. In 2009, the original owner and the restau-

rant’s namesake Bill Dressel’s vision was to “create the ultimate American bistro and tavern in Barrington.” Billy’s was an establishment he thought would add to the burgeoning restaurant scene in the East Bay. Later on in 2016, Elaine and Barbara acquired the small town’s mainstay and it became a popular venue for private gatherings and celebrations. What keeps Billy’s successful from year to year? According to Elaine, it’s a combination of the service and food the staff provides and team that she and Barbara employ. “We have a great team assembled at Billy’s. Our head chef Ambrocio has been at Billy’s for eight years.” Like many other businesses in Rhode Island,

Other things like soups, sauces, dressings, and desserts are made in-house to ensure the proper care is put into the final product. In the end, for both Elaine and Barbara, their work is about taking the time to make people feel at home when guests enter their restaurant. “Billy’s success is due not only to its fine food, but that people feel comfortable and welcomed. Barbara is out front to greet each and every customer. We aim to please.” Barrington, BillysLLC.com.

Food on the Run The daily trip to the gym after a hard day of work can be absolute drudgery. Yes, you’ll probably feel better after that rush of endorphins, but your dopamine-induced bliss might wear off once you remember you still have to go home and cook. Recently, Good4U made this weeknight routine easier. The mealprep business partnered with Body Natural

Fitness Center to provide gym-goers with healthy prepared meals available for “grab and go.” The Warren-based business strives to provide ingredient-conscious food to help build muscle and reach your fitness goals. So when an announcement of this partnership appeared on social media, the news just made sense. A recent post via Instagram (@ good4uri) revealed heaping, colorful bowls of Tex-Mex-style salads, steak and eggs with a herby tomato concoction spooned over top, and the piece de resistance: salmon with quinoa and kale drizzled with a yellowish-white sauce and garnished with fresh lemon. The partnership no doubt points to the company’s efforts to expand their business and build their brand even further in the East Bay. Barrington, Facebook, Good4U.com.
