Brunch So Hard at Sons of Liberty Spirits

Waffles & whiskey, what's not to love? Not your basic brunch. Join Sons of Liberty in the tasting room for another special waffle pop-up with The Burgundian: Coffee and Waffles! Must love waffles to attend. The Burgundian specializes in making liege waffles. A liege waffle is different than a belgian waffle because it is crafted from dough, rather than batter. Picture a plate of buttery goodness, donuts, waffles and doughboys all mixed together - and it's finished with imported caramelized belgian pearl sugar. Favorite local jazz band Spumante will be performing from 11-2pm. Special brunch cocktail menu that will pair perfectly with your waffles will be available. Check SOL Facebook page for updates. No tickets needed.

RI Quahog Week: Meet the Harvesters at Whalers Brewing Company

From March 25 to 31 celebrate the 4th Annual Quahog Week! This week highlights the importance of Rhode Island’s iconic shellfish to the state’s economy and culture. On Wednesday, March 27 from 5-8pm, harvesters from the RI Shellfishermen’s Association will be shucking and serving complimentary little necks and discussing their work with attendees. Matunuck Oyster Bar and other partners will provide  complimentary quahog-based samples and beverages. This event is free and open to the public. 21+ only after 6PM. Quahogging has a rich, local history, supporting the livelihoods of hundreds of Rhode Island fishermen and women year-round as well as serving as a treasured pastime for Rhode Island families who enjoy digging their own clams. Demand for these delicious local shellfish swells in the summer months due, in large part, to the popularity of fresh-shucked littlenecks, clam cakes, and stuffies. But they also make the perfect fare for winter chowders, pastas, and other dishes. Quahog Week shines a light on our favorite local clam, the hard-working men and women who harvest them, and the vibrant local food industry that makes them available to consumers. As part of the week-long observance, participating restaurants will feature quahog-inspired specials on their menus, and participating markets will offer deals for those who enjoy cooking their own clam dishes at home.
