KENNETH COTE RENEWAL CENTER We Have The Solution For You
I’m Kenneth Cote. For over 36 years my staff and I have listened to your needs and done our best to exceed your expectations. While beautiful, healthy hair and a hairstyle that works for you is the foundation of everything we do, at Kenneth Cote, we’re more than “just” a haircut. First and foremost, we’re good listeners and we will always provide you with affordable, healthy alternatives to help you look and feel your very best. Visit us today and we’ll suggest the solutions that work best for you.
Solutions For Thinning Hair
Men aren’t the only ones to experience hair loss. Thinning hair can be terrifying and it’s affecting some 30 million women in the U.S. according to WebMD. And whether it’s due to hormones, health, genetics or stress, it can strike at any age. The good news is that there are many solutions for thinning hair.. from styling products to help your hair look thicker to products designed to slow down hair loss and to promote new growth, from hair extensions to the most natural-looking cosmetic hair replacement for both men and women. At Kenneth Cote we have the solutions for your thinning hair. Call us for your complimentary consultation today.
Blondes Have More Fun!
When done correctly, going blonde is a perfect way to restore a youthful glow to women of all ages. Highlighting around the hairline makes color look more natural and softens and minimizes the appearance of fine lines. But don’t try going lighter at home. You need the expertise of one of our colorists to help you achieve the right shade to suit your skin tone which will make all the difference between looking brassy and looking beautiful! Visit one of our hair color experts today.
Making Gray Gorgeous
Going gray is a natural part of aging. But if you’re not ready for it, we have many creative solutions to help your gray hair look gorgeous at any age. If you’re just beginning to go gray, perhaps a few highlights will be all that’s needed to help your gray blend in. 25% or more gray? Then a semi-permanent color, applied professionally so it looks natural, will do the trick. The more gray hair you have the more you’ll need a permanent color to cover those pesky, more resistant gray hairs. And when gray hair dominates, perhaps it’s time to consider going all the way! A head of snowy white or shiny silver-gray hair can look stunning and it brightens up the complexion helping you look younger.
Year-Round Frizz Control
Even though summer is winding down, bushy, frizzy, hard-to manage hair can be a time-consuming bane to your existence year-round. If you haven’t done so already consider receiving a Brazilian Keratin Smoothing Treatment. It’s not a straightener but a unique keratin treatment designed to smooth, reduce bulk, eliminate frizz and dramatically reduce your styling time. Your hair will be left healthy, silky and shinier. And it will be easier than ever to style. It’s like a salon blowout that lasts 10-12 weeks! Consult with one of our keratin specialists today

Letters Vintage Glam For me, the end of summer is a bittersweet moment. I’m completely reluctant to accept that I’m giving up sunny afternoons at the beach and fresh-from-the-clam-shack dinners for another year. When the evenings start to get chilly enough that I need another layer to keep warm, I stomp into the house, open my closet and realize: oh wait. I’ve missed these clothes. And all of a sudden I’m thinking about cashmere scarves, knee-high boots and all of the uniquely fall activities I can wear them to. The thought of apple picking on a sunny autumn day and baking with my bounty that same chilly night does a lot to make me okay

From Our Readers Last month, we ran a list of “10 Things You Don’t Know about Block Island.” Our online followers had a lot to say about it: Questionable: #3 [about the Palantine, which burned off the coast of the island]. As I remember it from childhood, and it may be that this would be considered sensitive, but the Palatine ship’s crew had scurvy and islanders didn’t want then to
disembark. The ship was set on fire and the ancestors of those responsible have been rumored to see “the ghostly light.” Lots of legends abound and many lending an unflattering light on Islanders. –Posted on www. sorhodeisland.com by Unaspants It’s great to learn some new info about one of my favorite summer destinations. –Posted on Twitter by @AtlasTravel_rb

That’s why we’re excited to launch our new online dining guide, RhodyBites.com. The problem we have with most restaurant directories on the web is that they don’t actually tell you much about the restaurant. Sure, you can find out that Joe B. really loved the burger at one place or that Stacy T. was disappointed in the service at
another, but what kind of food do these places actually serve? Or what’s the atmosphere like? That’s where RhodyBites comes in. With simple, informative profiles of local restaurants, you can decide where and what to eat tonight and actually have some sense of what to expect when you get there. It’s still kind of new, and we’re adding more restaurants all the time, so keep checking back for updates – and tell us what you think.

A Glimpse at Being a Gondolier Gondoliers bring a bit of Florence to Rhode Island
Take a look into how a Narragansett resident went from a WaterFire volunteer to a gondolier. Turn the page to read how he learned the ropes of gondoliering and how to sing, and speak, in Italian in the process. September 2013 | SO RHODE ISLAND

Getting on Board with an Italian Tradition
Learning to be a gondolier While many know of the gondoliers populating Providence’s waterways during WaterFire, few know the individuals operating the oar. Take for example the 64-year-old Allan Redfern, a Narragansett resident, more commonly known by his gondoliering name Dantino. As the oldest member of La Gondola, the organization behind Providence’s gondoliers, Redfern proves following one’s desires does not stop with age. “About 16 years ago I got involved with WaterFire as a volunteer - still am, too - working on boats, on land, as a boat captain and training people. With a regular appearance at WaterFire I mingled with the gondoliers,” he says. “We’d yell at each other and high five one another. I was always interested in [gondoliering] and I’d kid them about wanting to row. Finally I went over and talked to the gentleman who runs the company. He said, ‘Anytime you want to learn how to row, I’d be happy to give you some pointers and give you time to practice.’ Now this is the third year that I’ve been rowing.” The transition from volunteer to gondolier, however, requires a bit more passion and finesse than Redfern lets on. The gondola itself is a 36-foot-long, flat-bottomed boat steered using a single 14-foot-long oar. The slightest, most subtle of rows can “make a big difference,” says Redfern, so a gondolier must be capable of dealing with sudden changes in wind direction or water flow. “Because I live in Narragansett, on Narrow River, I’ve always had a boat of some kind. I spent a lot of time on the water and developed a natural affinity for it - that’s what got me to volunteer for WaterFire. And I just, even for one time, wanted to know what it was like to row a gondola. It looked so fascinating.”
In addition to rowing, being a gondolier has forced Redfern to learn how to sing (as all of La Gondola’s gondoliers must sing) and learn Italian. (“None of us are great singers,” admits Redfern, “but some are better than others. We’re gondoliers who can sing; not singers who row a boat.”) Also, he’s enjoyed meeting individuals from all around the world, people who come “just for the experience. Every language you can imagine can be heard on the gondola.” Anyone interested in meeting Narragansett’s gondolier, or experiencing the romantic thrill of exploring Providence’s waterways, can find La Gondola operating every day with reservations going as late as midnight. www.gondolari.com –Dale Rappaneau

Somewhere along the road of human development, between the invention of technological entertainment and today, books have earned the disheartening status of “obsolete.” In 2004, the National Endowment for the Arts released a study that shows that not only is the amount of recreational reading among Americans - in every age group - declining, but it’s declining at a faster pace than ever before. The first question that comes to mind here is “why?” Why do so many of us choose to watch a television show or movie rather than read a book? I can’t remember ever walking out of a movie theater without overhearing someone say “The book was so much better,” or “They left out the best parts,” and it’s no secret that Julia Child’s Mastering The Art of French Cooking can never be replaced by an episode of 30 Minute Meals, so why? The second question that comes to mind, of course, is “how can it be fixed?” Shortly after conducting this study, the National
Endowment for the Arts started working on a program called The Big Read. The Big Read is meant to revitalize the act of reading in the American home by making it a social event. The Big Read will support non-profit organizations in hosting events that encourage reading. One of the 77 selected organizations is the Tomaquag Museum. Now through June 2014, the Tomaquag Museum will be hosting events centered around the book Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich, a widely acclaimed Native American author. Some of the events will include book discussions, readings, artistic response programs and cultural arts performances. Whether you think you like reading or not, The Big Read is a great excuse to pick up a book and remember what it is like to get lost in a good story. The Big Read’s kick off event will be held September 19 at 6:30pm at the URI Multicultural Center, Room 101. 74 Lower College Road, Kingston. www.tomaquagmuseum.com. -Adam Baffoni

Fun kids activities at the Fishing for Hope Tournament
Galilee will be hosting its 2nd Annual Fishing For Hope Tournament and Festival from September 7-8. This event celebrates the fishing community and industry in Rhode Island with all proceeds to be split amongst three charities: Narragansett Parks and Recreation Financial Aid Program, Point Judith Fishermen’s Memorial Scholarship Fund and Rhode Island Salt Water Anglers Foundation. This two-day event will be comprised of two parts: a fishing tournament and a seafood festival. Tournament competitors who don’t wish to take their catch home will have the option to donate their catch to the RI Center Assisting Those In Need (RICAN). All fish donations will go to their soup kitchen, where it will feed those in need. At the end of the festival, there will be an awards ceremony for the fishermen who have competed in the tournament, with award categories including bluefish, fluke and striped bass. The seafood festival will take place at the port of Galilee. Featured at the festival will be live entertainment, vendors, fishing boat tours, food and more. Last year’s festival was a huge success, and we’re expecting this year to be even better. Festival admission is free. Tournament admission is $15 for adults and $5 for juniors (14 and under). Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-5pm. www.galileetourney.com. -Adam Baffoni On September 14, seize your opportunity to support Rhode Island’s up-andcoming artists at the Third Annual Artists Closet Fashion Show.

Living hisTory Quonset Air Museum brings the past to Life Quonset air museum is one of the richest historical sites in rhode island. located in the heart of Quonset Point, the site where us naval history began, the Quonset air museum’s mission is to preserve and educate the public on rhode island’s aviation history. it even houses a whopping 28 vintage aircrafts in its exhibition. With its wide variety of relics - from famous crafts to vintage parts - the museum gives
those who visit not only a valuable, hands-on education of the past, but a genuine feel of being brought back in time. in the late 1800s, Quonset Point served as the rhode island militia’s state camp ground, followed by the rhode island national guard. then in 1938, a naval board headed by rear admiral Hepburn studied the need for and location of more east coast bases. Quonset Point was chosen and what was once 996 acres is now 1,748 acres. naval air station Quonset Point served in World War ii - warding off u-boats - and in the cold War. “[Quonset Point] had squadrons that used to search for russian submarines,” says executive director david Payne, describing the anti-submarine work that took place. and before Quonset Point shut down in 1973, it served as a home base for the navy’s antarctic support squadron, VX/VXe-6, who spent much time in antarctica getting involved in operation deep freeze, a us mission that aimed to advance the scientific findings and knowledge of antarctica. during Quonset Point’s activity in the 1940s, a paint shop for the base opened to touch up the aircrafts, not knowing that in 1992 that same building would be giving birth to one of rhode island’s most educative museums. With the goal in mind to preserve aircraft, including the well-known a-4 skyhawk, former governor bruce sundlun helped in the production of the epic museum, which is available today for events of all kinds. Visitors can enjoy the sights of the aircraft and read history plaques that offer rich education on the life of each craft. What better way to experience history? www.quonsetairmuseum.org -Jacleen Charboneau

Beauty Secrets Revealed Many women have wondered about the safety and efficacy of facial aesthetics, and if there really is a secret to reverse the effects of aging. Dr. Levy has revealed to us some of these secrets, answering the most important and frequently asked questions.
What is Botox, and is it safe?
How long do treatments last?
Botox is a protein that relaxes the muscle. Botox has been used safely since the 1980s for treating “crossed eyes” and facial spasms, and has been used cosmetically internationally since the early 1990s. It was deemed safe and approved for cosmetic use in the US by the FDA in 2002. Like any medical treatment, when done correctly and by an experienced physician, it is very safe.
This varies with each individual. Botox lasts approximately 3 months. Fillers can last anywhere between 6 months to over 2 years, depending on the filler and the area injected.
Does facial aesthetics mean just Botox injections, or does it involve other things?
You can start as soon as you see age-related changes. The younger you are when you start aesthetic treatments, the longer they last, and the better they work. Botox works best as a preventative for forming wrinkles.
I like to divide the face into two sections; above and below the eyes. Botox works beautifully in the upper third of the face. It relaxes the frown lines between the brows, the lines on the forehead, and the crow’s feet (wrinkles) around the eyes. In the lower 2/3 of the face, I use fillers in the vast majority of cases.
Can you tell us more about fillers? Most facial fillers are dissolvable gels which are injected to replace volume lost with age. Typical areas that I inject with fillers are the dark circles and bags below the eyes, deflated cheeks, marionette lines (the deep groves from the mouth down that make you look like you are frowning), lips, fine lip lines, temples, ear lobes and more. My website has several examples of my patients’ pre and post-filler photos.
Will my face look fake or frozen after treatments? Absolutely not, if done properly. My technique for treating with Botox is to create an overall look of relaxation, but to still leave some natural expressive movement. My goal is to make my patients look relaxed and refreshed, but not frozen. The key to treating with fillers is to maintain and restore the proportions of the face, and not to overfill. Aesthetics is an art, and I have dedicated my practice to perfecting that art.
At what age should I start with aesthetic treatments?
Do aesthetic treatments hurt? Since I too am an aesthetics patient, I have strived to make my treatments as painless as possible. Many of my patients have been surprised at how comfortable the treatments are, and how relaxing their experience was at my office.
Are aesthetic treatments costly? Aesthetic treatments are not inexpensive. However, when compared to what some of us spend on overthe-counter creams, serums and scrubs that may not work, aesthetic treatments are quite cost effective. With aesthetic treatments you can actually see the difference, often within a few hours or days. In my practice, all consultations are complimentary, and I demonstrate to each patient how her specific facial anatomy has changed with age, and how various products and techniques can restore and rejuvenate her youthful appearance. Aesthetic treatments are always tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient. One size does not fit all, and some patients need minimal treatments to freshen up their appearance, while others need more extensive treatments.
Are aesthetic treatments really a fountain of youth for my face? Absolutely. Most people do not realize that many of the movie stars and TV personalities that look so good for so long have received Botox injections and fillers for many years. Some even began their treatments as early as their late 20s, and have continued to do so throughout the years to refresh and maintain. Glowing
complexions are the result of regular facials, peels, and medical grade skin care. When done correctly, they can keep you looking young and natural for years.
Have you ever received aesthetic treatments? Of course! I am happy to share. Nearly all of the procedures that I offer to my patients, including Botox and fillers, I have also had myself. In addition, I treat myself to regular facials, monthly peels, and microdermabrasions. I also use medical grade skin care products and apply antioxidant serum and sunscreen every single day, which I feel is important as part of a daily home-care routine. I provide more information regarding sunscreen and sun damage on my website: DrSarahLevy.com
What makes your aesthetic practice different and what do you offer at your office? I personally perform all of the Botox and Filler injections in my office, as well as some of the deeper peels. My aesthetician performs medical grade facials, microdermabrasion, lighter peels, as well as waxing and tinting. As for skin care products, my office staff and I have personally tested almost every medical-grade skin care product on the market, and have chosen only those that we felt provided the highest quality and efficacy. After many years in the medical profession, I have found that it is my mission and my passion to help women realize their maximum youth and beauty. I am committed to applying my micro-surgical skills to the aesthetic treatments I offer in my practice, in a refined and relaxing environment. I believe that it is very important for women to find time for themselves and to care for their beauty, as part of an overall healthy lifestyle.
Dr. Levy, thank you so much for your time. It was a pleasure speaking with you. If any of our readers require further information, or wish to schedule their appointment, they can go to www.DrSarahLevy.com, or contact Dr. Levy’s office directly at (401) 649-0320.
We recently discovered Dr. Sarah Levy, a talented young aesthetics specialist with impressive credentials. A Board Certified Eye Surgeon, Dr. Levy is a Clinical Instructor of Surgery at Brown University. There, Dr. Levy mentors medical students, and teaches physicians in the Ophthalmology residency program the fine techniques of micro-surgery and Botox. Dr. Levy also has her own aesthetics practice, The Facial Aesthetics Center and Spa, located in Wakefield and East Greenwich. PAID ADVerTISeMeNT

Intimate and thoughtfully designed spaces define this grand home
An Homage to Local History There’s considerable pressure when hosting a gaggle of friends and family at your home for the annual Thanksgiving feast. There’s even more when the invitations are out and the home is under construction. For Joyce Perschy and Dennis Lynch of Narragansett, failure was not an option. Determined to keep up the family tradition, Joyce moved forward with her plans with every faith in architect Gail Hallock and builder Steve Lawrence to complete the home just in time to toss the turkey in the oven. “Thanksgiving was a really important goal and they really worked like crazy,” she says, adding that they moved in just about a week before the holiday. “We felt strongly about keeping up tradition” Much like the construction of the new, stunning home itself, Thanksgiving went off without a hitch. Joyce was just out of college and working for a New York City-based company that kept her on the road regularly, but her trip to this neck of the woods felt different. “Once I landed on Narragansett Town Beach, marveling at The

Towers, the ‘Pier’ became embedded in my being and as Tina Fey would say, ‘I want to go to there,’” she says. After she and Dennis, a Rhode Island native, met and married, they raised their children Patrick, Devon and Jordan in New Canaan, Conn. There was a piece of South County, however, that remained in their hearts. “In my mind, one way or another we were coming back,” says Joyce. It wasn’t uncommon for her to pick up the children on the last day of school and head to Rhode Island’s pristine southern shores where they had a summer house. In 2009, after their children were raised and starting families of their own, Joyce and Dennis’ self-fulfilling prophecy of permanent residency manifested itself when they bought a circa 1950 brick home in Narragansett Pier. “I had a very strong desire to have a Narragansett [style] house,” explains Joyce. “There’s no name for it… It’s not a Victorian, not a Queen Anne; it’s a Narragansett shingle style house – it’s a blend of designs. They all look different,
but in the same different way.” With a keen interest in local history, the couple was committed to building a home that celebrated the town’s past but with both modern conveniences and curb appeal. “Our goal was to build a home [here] which represented the historic nature and beauty found in Narragansett Pier’s Historic District,” Joyce says. Finding someone with their same vision was as critical as it was challenging. Not only was she in search of an architect with the same point of view, but someone who she says would be willing to listen. The couple turned to Gail Hallock Cyr, AIA of Gail Hallock Architect based out of Wickford, for her portfolio of historic and coastal homes. Joyce calls her, quite simply, “an angel.” Together, Joyce and Gail tried to save the existing brick home and repurpose it into the new design, but that proved illogical. “It just didn’t work,” says Gail. “It turned out to be a better solution to demolish.” “She was very involved and very particular about what she wanted to have,” says Gail about Joyce. “She has excellent
style.” She also has computer savvy, adds Gail, saying that her knowledge of architectural software made it easy to review drawings and plans. From the beginning, the two saw eyeto-eye on the role this home needed to play in this historic pocket of Narragansett. “We were really careful to build it like it belonged,” explains Gail. Though there are always surprises that come along when building a home from scratch, Joyce and Gail made a wondrous discovery as they built upward. Though they expected to have some views of Narragansett Bay by the time they reached the 3rd floor, what they found when they got there took their collective breath away. “We found stunning, 360-degree views,” she says, which they capitalized on by adding expansive windows and peaked dormers rich with detail. After meeting with a number of builders, Joyce and Dennis selected Steve Lawrence of Narragansett-based Lawrence Builders Inc. to execute their vision. “We just felt so lucky that Steve has such talented subcontractors; just

It creates an actual feeling in the house.” The kitchen was a critical component to the home and Joyce was very particular about the look, feel and function of the one they would create. She worked with Audrey Anderson of Apex Kitchens & Baths in Middletown. “It was a lot of fun working with Audrey. She knows her stuff – she’s been doing it a long time,” says Joyce. It’s a good thing too, because Joyce had a somewhat challenging kitchen in mind. “I wanted a light kitchen, but I love cherry wood,” she says, acknowledging that the two aesthetics are not commonly complementary. “You have to see it to believe it.” Today, the family, their children and Sky and Cozmo – a pair of adorable Shelties best known as “the Boyz” – are comfortable in the house they made a home. But like anything great, Joyce and
Dennis’ home took a village – just ask any “behind the scenes” team in home construction. The couple was nothing short of awe-struck by the work of Wilcox & Sons Excavation. “The amazing Paul Wilcox and [his] sons of WE DIG,” Joyce says. Other key players include Master Carpenter John Meegan, carpenter Ben Lundgren, framer David Dinucci, the crews from Somers Painting, Mike Rossi of New England Wood Floors and Stony Lane Electric, MRD and RJM Woodworking, and land surveyor Amy Sonder “And many more,” says Joyce. “This has been an incredible team effort and we feel so fortunate to have worked with such fine craftsmen that put their hearts into building our home.

It was a sunny Sunday morning when I strolled onto Narragansett Town Beach looking for Gina Raheb’s beach yoga class. Wait, allow me to start again. It was very early on a sunny Sunday morning when I scrambled across the sand for Gina’s Natural Fitness beach yoga class. I’m sure 8am is a totally normal time, but on a Sunday morning? In the summer? That sangria wasn’t going to drink itself on Saturday night. Don’t get me wrong, I love yoga, and I had been looking forward to Gina’s class. I had just had a hard time rousing myself to get there. (Ok, who am I kidding? By the time I wake up on the weekend that class is long over.) But once I saw how busy the beach already was as I laid out my towel – better sand traction than a yoga mat – the time made sense. Any later and I would have had toddlers shoveling sand onto my head during downward-facing dog. In about one minute, any crankiness I had was gone. The sun was shining, the waves were lapping the shore just feet from where we sat, and Gina’s cheery disposition was infectious. As she welcomed us to the class - the crowd of 15 or so was a mix of tourists (I could tell from the fact that they were doing yoga in regular clothing and/or bathing suits) and die-hard yogis (I could tell from the fact that they were much, much better at inversions than I am) - Gina dropped some of the punniest jokes I’ve heard since elementary school. “Who tried to fly before the Wright Brothers?” she asked us. “The Wrong Brothers,”
the man next to me groaned. The first couple of them were total sinkers (see? you can’t help it), but as we progressed to more challenging moves, we were all grateful to have something to distract us from our burning thigh muscles. Beach yoga is different than the practice I’m used to. People do yoga for all kinds of reasons: stretching, strength, weight loss, rehabilitation. I love the health benefits, but I do it because it quiets my mind and recharges my batteries. Because of all of the external stimuli at the beach – the waves coming in, the seagulls flying overhead, the people walking by, the moving sand under (and on) my towel – I didn’t experience that same fullness of being out of my head. But I did experience other things: the waves coming in, the seagulls overhead, the sand under me… you get the idea. It was everything I love about the beach, with the added bonus of spending an hour stretching and namaste-ing my way into a beautiful sunny day. After the class was over I felt wide awake, totally envigorated, and ready to spend the rest of the day being a beach bum. For that, I can brave an early morning. Gina teaches beach yoga daily through the beginning of September.

The coastal village of
Watch Hill is surrounded by picture-perfect ocean views, impressive Victorian homes and dozens of charming and tasteful shops and restaurants. With the popular summer season winding down, there are still plenty of reasons to visit this beautiful community and enjoy some inspired shopping. One store that you won’t want to miss is Highpoint Home. Kaitlin Smith began her career with five years in the fashion industry in NYC. She quickly realized that she wanted to continue her education in the field of Interior Design, leading her to open Highpoint Home last year. She chose Watch Hill as a location because she grew up shopping in the village and had managed a store there for several summers. “Ironically, my mother managed the Lilly Pulitzer store in my same location in the early ‘80s. I guess we have come full circle,” Kaitlyn says. Her passion and expertise in the world of fashion and design were influential in creating an inviting store atmosphere that mimics the blue-greens of the ocean and the calming neutrals of the sand, making way for a soothing and enjoyable shopping experience. “The aesthetic of the store is certainly bright and coastal, but many of the pieces for sale can work in the home when combined with a neutral color scheme. I think color is an important addition to any home,” she shares with enthusiasm. There are plenty of pleasing pieces
scouted from around the world resulting from Kaitlyn and her mother’s travels – rattan furniture, Chinese lanterns, blue and white patterned oriental vases and jars, artisan side tables and classic picture frames. You’ll also find just as many local items such as custom-made designer pillows, refreshing soaps, tea towels and more that are created here in the Ocean State. “Supporting local artisans and vendors is very important to Highpoint Home. The talent we have here in our own backyard is amazing,” she says fondly. Highpoint Home also offers a great selection of costume jewelry and accessories. Whether you need a long necklace to wear at the beach or something a little more formal for the evening, there is definitely something to fit anyone’s budget. In addition to the storefront, Smith offers her professional design services on site. Customers also enjoy her helpful blog which you can find on her website featuring some terrific ‘Do It Yourself’ tips on easy updates for furniture and decor. Kaitlyn says. “Whether you add a new pillow or a lamp, your house will get a quick update without re-designing the whole space.”

BIF_SoRI__Ad_13rev.qxd:BIF The Hack & Livery General Store and Emporium is an off shoot of Doug and Peggy Yattaw’s first business venture in the 1970s: the Chimney Sweep Candle Co. Although there have been many changes over the last 36 years, one thing has never changed: creating a hometown, family-friendly experience. Doug, you mentioned that you went to Hack & Livery as a child. How has it changed since you became co-owners? Hack & Livery has been in our town for at least 125 years and has served many purposes. As a kid it was an antique store, which I had visited with my parents on occasion. My father loved refinishing old things. His appreciation for old things rubbed off on me. When Peggy and I were married, we found that we shared this appreciation of old things.

What’s your favorite item in the store? If I had to choose, it would be the candy. Just like food of any kind, it brings people together. We have real penny candy that appeals to the “more mature” person – people my age. The kids like really sour candy. But everyone has a favorite. Where does the name “Hack & Livery” come from? Before cars, the livery stable was a very important hub for business in both small towns and large cities. In our small town alone there were at least four within a half mile on or near Main Street. Simply
put, a livery is a stable where animals are kept. A hack was a wagon, buckboard or carriage rented for a period of time. How is history part of the shopping experience? A good example is the candy and check out counter. These counters were salvaged from Sherman’s Store in Peace Dale. With a tip from a local architect and the help of a great friend, we removed the counters from the building, which was being raised in three days. Sherman’s was in business since at least 1852. My wife and many of our customers bought penny candy at Sherman’s. This was another wonderful save of something historic. Who can I shop for at Hack & Livery? We have games and toys, books and some old fashion toys like jacks. We have birthday, house warming and hostess gifts for just about everyone. We refer to one of our upstairs areas as “the granny trap” where great items can be found for kids up to about three or four. We’re grandparents too. We understand what it’s about.

South Countyâ€™s Ireland Fish and Chips
Having been in operation for more than a century, Taraâ€™s Tipperary Tavern gets Irish food, from bangers to rashers, chips to toasties. More importantly, they get Irish beer. Turn the page to read about how this local pub still manages to impress even the most refined of eaters. September 2013 | SO RHODE ISLAND
So Delicious | Review
By David Dadekian
Fighting Irish Foods A Matunuck tavern overcomes setbacks from recent storms Rhode Island has had some rough times lately. From Narragansett to Matunuck through Misquamicut and down to Napatree Point, Superstorm Sandy eroded away a lot of beach and some very precious not-so-natural resources: restaurants, bars and hotels. Tara’s Tipperary Tavern in Matunuck got hit with a double-whammy, not only suffering damage from Sandy last fall, but also getting walloped by Nemo this past February. But you can’t keep the Irish down and the nearly 100-yearold pub is still going strong and keeping a little piece of Ireland in southern Rhode Island. Walking into Tara’s Tipperary Tavern you’ll come across the usual Guinness imagery and well-worn bar of an Irish pub. There’s barely an ambience, but then it also feels like there are decades of ambience. It’s not quite the feeling of a centuries-old pub in Ireland, but Tara’s is still carrying some weight in its brief new world history. The main test of any place that calls itself an Irish pub is of course ordering a Guinness. My friend went with a Smithwick’s, which was nice to see on tap too, but for me Guinness is required. The bartender took her time pouring it, which she even apologized for after she had filled the glass three-

quarters of the way and was giving the stout time to settle. No apologies necessary, I said, waiting patiently until she topped it off under that settled, creamy dome. It was as perfect of a pour as I’ve seen around here and a harbinger of all that was to come. For those not Irish beer-inclined, Tara’s has plenty of domestic brews on tap and in bottles, as well as some wines, and of course a selection of Irish whiskeys. On to the menu, which won’t win any awards for uniqueness – we’re talking pub food here: wings, mozzarella sticks, burgers, fish and chips and club sandwiches. Though there are some nice little Irish touches like bangers and rashers and even a toastie. We ordered up a mix of Rhode Island and Ireland flavors and were soon greeted with an onslaught of food from the very efficient kitchen. First up was something that has its roots in both the old world and new, a cup of clam chowder ($4.50) with a side of clam cakes ($2.50). Tara’s offered three kinds of clam chowder – red, white and clear – and we went with white. It was a touch on the thick side, but it wasn’t too pasty and was loaded with lots of clams and big chunks of potato. The clam cakes were a nice size, a little larger than a golf ball, but not crazy big, and were perfectly fried.
Next we went traditional Rhode Island and tried a stuffie ($4.25), which was enormous and delicious. My friend attacked it after her first taste, and I had to agree with her that it was one of the better stuffies I’ve had. There was lots of flavorful bread stuffing and it was packed light and loosely so that
it wasn’t like eating a ball of dough, which is a problem with a lot of stuffies. So far Tara’s had gotten the Rhode Island side of menu spot on. Our next treat was frickles ($6.95), which is, if you can’t guess from the name, fried pickles. I’ve seen some places bread and fry long pickle spears, which is not the way to go for maximum frying surface area to create flavor. Tara’s frickles were properly fried round slices of whole pickle, and, as expected, perfectly fried. These frickles were light and crispy with a good mix of the sour vinegar taste of the pickle and the salty crispiness of the fry coating. They came with a horseradish sauce that, while tasty, I didn’t feel was necessary for such a perfectly fried item. With our two main dishes we crossed completely over the Atlantic – Ireland does contain the westernmost point of continental Europe (if you count a large island as part of the continent). We had the Bangers and Pub Chips ($6.95) and an R.L.T. ($7.75). The bangers were pretty traditional with some good breadiness to them. They were served with what tasted like it might have been HP Sauce, a bottled

UK sauce with some malt vinegar and tamarind. The pub chips served with the bangers were a huge highlight of the meal. It’s not often that you get thinly sliced potato chips, fried to order and excellently seasoned, but Tara’s pulls this off with style. They also offer these chips as a side dish with cheese and bacon, which I will definitely be back for. Lastly we had the R.L.T., which is a Rashers, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich. Rashers are Irish bacon. Unlike American bacon which is made from the pork belly, Irish bacon is usually made from the side or back of the animal, giving it a bit more of a big, meaty area surrounded by streaks of fat (there’s a few more differences but that’s the main one). It’s definitely not the bacon we’re used to here and that
• Emergency Medical Services meatiness makes it a nice part of a sandwich. I loved that Tara’s had rashers on the menu. When we finished eating and polished off our beers, my friend and I turned to each other and basically had the same exact thought. Yes, it’s pub food, but wow, was that good pub food. To heck with the weather. Here’s hoping Tara’s holds strong into the next century. Sláinte!

Sammy Wang is the owner and sushi chef at O Sushi, a new restaurant in North Kingstown serving traditional Japanese fare, hibachi, and, you guessed it, sushi. We talked to him about his journey to opening this restaurant. What sets O Sushi apart from other sushi bars? Our sushi bar combines both the traditional sushi rolls alongside fusion-style rolls like our Surf and Turf Roll (Shrimp Tempura and red onion topped with avocado and pan-seared beef) and Tropicana Roll (avocado and black and orange caviar topped with mango, kiwi and salmon). Where did you learn to make sushi? I used to work at Haruki in Providence. I worked under a chef who had over 30 years of experience. Did you have a background in cooking before becoming a sushi chef? Throughout my life, I worked as an Asian-style chef. Along the way I had some western influence on my cooking styles. I worked as a sushi chef for over six years before deciding to finally open up my own place where I could create my own styles of sushi.
What is your favorite cut of fish to use? I like using tuna in my sushi. I like the texture and flavor that it has. Some sushi doesn’t contain raw seafood or any seafood at all. What is necessary for a piece of food to be called sushi? Sushi is described as any dish with vinegared rice. What are some tips you can give to someone who wants to learn more about sushi or becoming a sushi chef? It’s not easy to become a sushi chef especially when you get to the part where you have to cut fish and other ingredients. If you do not cut them correctly the meat falls apart. Beginners can stick to spreading rice over seaweed then flipping it over onto a bamboo mat. From there they can easily put the ingredients on the seaweed and roll it up with the bamboo mat beneath it. What is a good first sushi for someone who has never tried it? For those who are afraid of raw fish, they should try the California, Philadelphia or other basic sushi rolls. These are usually cooked. Others that do not
mind could try the Spicy Tuna Roll or any other sushi that includes tuna. When serving sushi, elegant presentation is very important. Where do you get your inspiration for your plate layouts? Most of my inspiration comes from animals and plants. I try to make the layouts appealing to the eye. What qualifies a cut of seafood as “sushi grade?” Texture, color, taste and freshness are what I look for before I determine if they are good for sushi. When I look for texture, I try to find meat that is tender. For color, I see how red it is. Traditionally, people use a bright light to see the color of the meat. If it is red, the meat is good. We always use the freshest food, which means that they are red.

Locally Delicious Farms, shops and festivals usher in the fall season Jules grow
up in southern Rhode Island, but he’s made a name for himself here as the owner/operator/head farmer of Walrus and Carpenter Oysters located in Charlestown’s Ninigret Pond. OptonHimmel grew up in New York City, which is obviously not a place to farm oysters. After studying environmental science and forestry at Wesleyan and Yale, he decided life on the water and farming oysters was a great way to combine his love of boating with his environmental science background. He’s been farming in Charlestown for five years now and has a 15-year lease from the state on his section of Ninigret Pond. Oysters grow in mesh bags attached to PVC pipe frames in the brackish water of Ninigret Pond. As the oysters grow, they are transferred to larger bags. It takes anywhere from one-and-a-half to three years for oysters to reach maturity, and they are harvested twice a week, year round. Opton-Himmel is hard at work by 8am. Daily tasks on an oyster farm include stirring the “infant” oysters in the upweller (a nursery of sorts), sorting oysters and transferring them to appropriate sized bags, cleaning the bags, preparing oysters for market and selling directly to consumers and local restaurants. Fall is the perfect time to try a Walrus and Carpenter Oyster. Opton-Himmel says the fall and winter oysters are the sweetest. He delivers the majority of his oysters to local restaurants and plans to keep it that way. He has had requests for oysters to be shipped as far away as Japan. But for him, contributing to our local food economy is more important. Oysters have an incredibly long shelf life when kept at a cool temperature (six to eight weeks), but Jules delivers his oysters to restaurants on the day they are harvested. Locally his oysters can be found at the Wilcox Tavern and Ella’s Fine Food & Drink in Westerly, The Mooring and The Landing in Newport, as well as several other restaurants throughout the state. Additionally, you can order the oysters directly at walrusandcarpenteroysters.com. NEWPORT WINE & FOOD FESTIVAL The Newport Mansions will once again
The Annual Newport Food & Wine Festival returns from September 20-22
provide a spectacular backdrop for the annual Newport Wine & Food Festival held from September 20-22. The weekend features a wide array of events including a Collectible Wine Dinner, Brunch with Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, Grand Tastings on both Saturday and Sunday, Newport After Dark After-Party at Forty 1° North, a variety of seminars from Wine 101 for the wine novice and Wine Collectibles for the serious wine aficionado. Two southern Rhode Island restaurants will be participating in this year’s Grand Tastings: Jamestown Fish and The Ocean House. For the second year in a row, Michael Greenlee is the beverage director for the festival. A local North Kingstown boy, Greenlee has worked as a wine buyer for Le Cirque, the Waldorf Astoria and the Four Seasons. He now owns a company, Amedeo, which “helps wineries better navigate distribution and helps them sell wine directly to the consumer.” Greenlee is excited about this year’s festival and says there’s “something for everyone who’s interested in wine and food.” The wineries represented at this year’s festival are coming from all over the world, and he says “many of them are small producers that are hard to come by.” With approximately 3,500 people attending last year’s festival, you may want to purchase your tickets ahead of time at www.newportmansions. org/events/wine-and-food-festival. See you there!
NEW EVENTS AT ELEVEN FORTY NINE At Warwick’s Eleven Forty Nine Restaurant, Sunday nights are now a lot tastier. From 4-9pm, the restaurant is hosting a Prime Rib Dinner for $24.95 per person. The dinner includes a 16oz. portion of prime rib & jus, whipped potatoes and creamed spinach. You can add three baked stuffed shrimp to make it surf & turf for $36.95. On Monday night, they feature “Everyone’s Italian” with a three-course Italian Feast for only $24.95. Start your meal with a caprese salad (perfect for this time of year), followed by the restaurant’s homemade lasagna and complete your evening with a piece of tiramisu. PALMIERI’S OPENS ON MAIN STREET IN EAST GREENWICH My favorite spot for bakery pizza strips, Palmieri’s Bakery and Caffe, is opening a location at 247 Main Street in East Greenwich. In mid-September, you won’t have to drive to Providence’s Federal Hill to get your biscotti, pizza strips, cupcakes and more. The bakery has been baking since 1898 and they are on their way to southern Rhode Island. Send all food, beverage, restaurant and chef news to Stacey Place at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Consider, for a moment,
the lichen: those mossy green bits of symbiotic fungal life that stubbornly cling to trunks of trees, rocks and headstones. Few people give lichens more than a passing glance, but then, few people possess the same passion for all living things of natural science as illustrator Frances Topping. There are a few things you typically see when you walk into an artist’s studio: easels and brushes, half-completed projects, perhaps some photographs. What catches your eye in Topping’s spacious loft in the backwoods of Charlestown – literally, as it turns out – is her microscope. Botanicals are one of Topping’s favorite subjects to draw, and not just pretty orchids and lotuses, but also the more humble forest residents, such as the lichen currently residing under the lens of her microscope where she can capture its detail precisely. “I enjoy the diversity of plants,” she says. “They’re all part of the ecosystem, and every time you learn about something you find added depth to it.” Born in the English countryside, Topping describes herself as a “voracious learner,” with a bachelor’s degree in geography with botany and zoology from the University of Sheffield (U.K.), a BFA in graphic design with illustration and photography from the University of Akron in Ohio and a certification in natural-science illustration from RISD. After stints living in London and Canada, she and her husband settled in the Cleveland area, where it didn’t take Topping long to realize she wasn’t cut out for the then-new field of computer-assisted design, which required her to sit in front of a monitor for eight hours a day. She wanted to be outside. So Topping took a job as an interpretive naturalist with Cleveland Metroparks, where she spent her days teaching the public about the natural world around them, all the while gathering knowledge for herself and honing her skills as an artist. Soon, scientists, nature
Frances Topping recreates the natural world around her through her illustrations
centers and museums were seeking her out for illustrations of wild birds, plants and animals. She also kept meticulously detailed pen-and-ink journals as she traveled to such diverse destinations as Crete, England, France and Arizona. A Rhode Island resident for more than a decade, Topping has continued to expand her subjects and style even as she spends countless hours exploring the varied landscape of the Ocean State. “Every serious wildlife artist has to spend years in the field,” she says. Sometimes, her passions overlap: while volunteering at Casey Farm, for example, she was able to observe and draw the swallows nesting in the barn. Subjects like plants are typically drawn from direct observation, while animals tend to be based on a mix of live viewing and photographs (since the latter don’t tend to stay in one place for as long as trees and plants). Rhode Island’s stone walls, which remind Topping of her native Oxfordshire, make appearances in her work, and her paintings sometimes focus on the manmade world, like
watercolors of Carpenter’s Grist Mill in Perryville and the green umbrellas on the deck of Wickford’s Tavern by the Sea. Her latest passion is a richly detailed sketchbook detailing life on local farms, which she hopes to sell at local farmer’s markets. (Topping’s drawings and paintings also can be purchased on her website, Mystic Scrimshanders in Wickford, the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Learning Center on Prudence Island and periodic art shows and exhibits.) Topping’s business cards read, “Artist/Naturalist/Educator,” and she takes the latter job as seriously as the first two. She teaches sketching, but moreover sees every piece of her artistic work as playing a conservational and educational role, from the interpretive panels she does for the Rhode Island Wild Plant Society to her simple penand-ink drawing of fall fungi, beach roses or skunk cabbage. “Most people, when they go into a forest, they see a wall of green,” she says. “I want to encourage people to look a little closer at what’s out there.” www.francestoppingvisuals.com

Support the Arts And get cultured at the Courthouse Local broadway lovers don’t necessarily enjoy the drive to NYC. Nor do aspiring actors appreciate the eyepopping class prices. Fortunately, the Courthouse Center for the Arts has been rechristened as a cultural center and now hosts a wide variety of concerts, visual art exhibits, fundraisers for local businesses and yearround art classes, in addition to its classic theater performances. Come and celebrate the Courthouse Center for the Arts’ upcoming classes and feature performances. Mike Messier’s C.O.r.e acting class tailors to the experienced comedian and theater-loving novice alike. His “unique hybrid of scene study,” C.O.R.E, – Character, Origin, Response, Environment – embodies the fresh acting philosophy he gleaned from multiple years of experience in the performing arts. Now he’s teaching a class that’s offered in fourweek installments – though walk-ins for individual sessions are also welcome. Tuesdays. Ages 15+. Sept 3-Oct 22. 6:309pm. $100 for four weeks. Any humor-hungry audience member who decides to attend the Jim macDonald experience in Light and Sound will not be disappointed. A native Rhode Islander, this regular performer in the Late Late Shows (both Letterman and Ferguson) and acclaimed Comedy & Magic Club of Hermosa Beach will leave Los Angeles and head back to his beloved hometown this September. This stand-up comedian’s downto-earth and family-oriented show is a “must-see for any light-hearted
Rhode Islander.” Sept 6. 7pm. $20. For something both salacious and comedic, head over to the Courthouse on September 14 to see the classic Rocky Horror Picture Show. This intensely “interactive show” is for greenhorns and devil-horns alike. Sept 14. 9pm. $10. If you’re feeling nostalgic for “Walk the Line” or “Going to Jackson,” Johnny Cash’s distinct baritone voice and his delightful duets with June Carter will now live a second life through Jimmy and Joyce love Johnny and June. This multilayered tribute to the “lives, love and music” of these archetypal American artists will bring a tangy taste of Tennessee to the Courthouse. Sept 21. 8pm. $20. Pamper your pooch – and potentially all South County Dogs – at the benefit Concert for the richmond Dog park. Listen to the upbeat band Johnny and the East Coast Rockers, indulge in some unique (human and doggy) gifts from the street vendors and enjoy tasty snacks and beverages from the bar. All funds benefit the park. Sept 22. 11- 4pm. Band plays 1-3pm. $15. Dogs are free! Lovebirds looking for a romantic getaway can stroll hand-in-hand to the Courthouse to see Love Letters. This “ageless comedy/drama” focuses on a decade-long courtship in which sweethearts ironically express their mutual love through piles of unrequited love letters. Sept 27-29. 8pm, Friday-Saturday; 3pm, Sunday. $20. Tickets may be purchased through the Courthouse or at www.brownpapertickets.com.

And we must not forget the fresh, juicy blueberries found generously throughout the cake. 32 Narragansett Avenue, Jamestown. 423-9866. www.sliceofheavenri.com.
T’s Restaurant When tasting these surprisingly not-too-sweet pancakes, an apple streusel comes to mind. With the variety of fix-ins, including walnuts, caramel, cinnamon apple and streusel toppings, those who prefer to go without syrup will be satisfied with a dollop of whipped cream. 500 Post Road, East Greenwich. 398-7877. www.tsrestaurantri.com.
Phil’s Main Street Grille One way to sum up our experience with these chocolate chip and banana pancakes is to imagine Mom’s banana bread. These spongey cakes have the perfect amount of fresh bananas and chocolate, giving your tastebuds a delicious morning wake-up call. 323 Main Street, Wakefield. 783-4073. www.philsmainstreetgrille.com.
The Olde Lighthouse Diner Like an Almond Joy this cake has taken the classic candy bar to the next level. We enjoyed the subtle flavors of the famous combination: coconut, chocolate and almonds. Add a dollop of maple syrup to these massive flat-cakes to start your day off right. 120 Knowlesway, Narragansett. 284-3883.
