Welcome to Grace Church - Providence

Welcome to Grace Church

Grace Church: Evensong or Compline, anyone?

I know, going to church isn't what most people think of when they hear the word "nightlife" -- but I have to assume there are some other VT'ers out there who actually go to church, and who appreciate high-quality sung choir services in the style of English cathedrals. So I am going to recommend that, schedule permitting, a visitor to Providence attend one of the choral Evensongs (generally on Sundays at 5:00 PM, although not every week), or Compline (on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM) held at Grace Church, which is conveniently located downtown just across from the Hotel Providence and L'Epicureo restaurant (both excellent choices, incidentally). Music director Mark Johnson has a trained boy choir, but these two services are often sung by a mixed choir of (mostly) adults. Both take place in candle light. Treat yourself to a worship experience that will bless you.

Dress Code: Whatever you'd wear to church, anyway. (Grace is also the site of the U2 Eucharist, when dress gets a little more avant garde.)

Address: 175 Mathewson Street, Providence, RI 02903

Directions: Corner of Westminster Street and Mathewson Street. Parking available just off Snow Street in a lot adjacent to the church.

Live music, great wine, congenial people - Providence
Tazza: Live music, great wine, congenial people

I'm not part of the young, hip crowd, but I work just across the street from Tazza and from time to time I get seduced into having drinks after a long day...and it's clear that I'm missing a lot by not doing it more frequently. Tazza features a lot of live music (every night of the week, I believe), which is just a plus because the place is great for kicking back and enjoying a good band with a glass of wine and some of the excellent appetizers. Tazza has multiple seating options, including some comfortable sofas, and outdoor seating in good weather.

Dress Code: Looks to me like anything goes, but we are talking yuppie prices...
