Worcester, MA Must Try Restaurants: Deadhorse Hill

Worcester, MA Must Try Restaurants: Deadhorse Hill

We recently adventured away from our usual stomping grounds of Providence, RI and found ourselves in Worcester, MA. We had no preconceived notions about Worcester so looking for a place to eat offered us quite the dilemma. There are so many options to choose from in Worcester so picking our first place to eat was a nail biter. However some friends of ours recommended Deadhorse Hill in the downtown area, so we figured that was a good place to start our culinary story in Worcester. Deadhorse Hill offers a myriad of experiences. As you enter, you are confronted with an espresso bar that separates the lunch and dinner dining room from the breakfast dining room. We were here for dinner so we can’t speak to the breakfast date experience here, but if you have we’d love to hear about it. In the dining room there is a well manned bar front and center for those that would like to watch the excellent bar tenders practice their craft. We opted for the table as date nights …

Romantic Scavenger Hunt Date Night

I’m sure you’ve done tons of scavenger hunts in your day, collecting random items with a group of friends for a probably not-so-great prize. When doing a scavenger hunt for our own date night, a lot of the items on lists we found seemed random. What did light bulbs and an old newspapers have to do with date night any way?

Day date on Block Island, RI

Day Date on Block Island, RI

Most people are familiar with locations like Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket Island. Memories of warm summer days with Atlantic Ocean breezes may come flooding through your conscious mind. A fun fact, Martha’s Vineyard was where the original Jaws movie was shot, but you can relax because the shark was fake and anytime a great white gets anywhere near a beach the authorities are hot on its tail. However, there is a lesser known Island off the coast of Rhode Island that, in our opinion, could be better than any of the aforementioned locations. Block Island is a small island that is just a ferry ride away for any who wish to enjoy its shores. With the summer heat in full swing, my wife and I decided to take a day for ourselves and go find some cooler climates. We landed on Block Island as we had not been there before and we had only heard good things from friends. We were pleasantly surprised to find this to be a relaxing day for two. …

Boston Must Try Restaurants: Deuxave Review

Boston Must Try Restaurants: Deuxave Review

Located in the beautiful Back Bay of Boston, Deuxave is located at 371 Commonwealth Ave. The plates served up here are contemporary French with fresh American ingredients. My favorite! And here’s a fun fact about the restaurant for us Rhody’s: the chef studied in Providence, Rhode Island. Howdy neighbor! The atmosphere of Deuxave is relaxed but sophisticated. The decor is beautiful but you also don’t feel out of place if you come dressed in jeans. Our favorite part of this place is the outdoor seating, which is perfect on a summer night. It’s hard to find a restaurant in Boston with ample outdoor seating, but Deuxave has a cozy patio that fits 30 people so you can enjoy the outdoors in an intimate setting. Enjoy views of the historical district and park (then again every place in Boston is historical) while enjoying a glass of wine and a delicious plate of food. Regarding the parking, good luck finding a spot. Due to it’s popular location, it’s slim pickings. Skip the endless search and go straight for …

Hammock Date Night

Summer Date Ideas: Hammock Together

While fold out chairs have been the gold standard for enjoying sunny summer days, the hammock is the completely underrated runner up. We thought investing in a hammock would add some flavor to our summer days and we were instantly overjoyed when we were right. While you’re sitting atop a heap of metal and plastic, you could be gently swaying in the wind between two trees strengthened by time and patience. Okay, I get that my description is a little too picturesque but hammocks are just better. One fateful summer evening, we decided to head down to India Point Park in Providence, RI. The temperature was in the mid 80’s and was dropping as the sun was dipping lower in the sky. We found a spot between two trees with sufficient strength atop a small null in the middle of the park. It was the perfect spot to either watch the walkers go by or see what the local fishermen were pulling in. It was made all the better by snuggling with my wife and …
