Best Of The Blast: November 15-21

By  |  0 Comments

Last week in Newport, RI, a lot of people enjoyed some blasts from the past.



It’s always interesting when random old posts that have been quiet for a while suddenly come back to life and go on a rampage through the internets. This week, that happened a couple times, the first with a post we wrote on ISIS back in March…and again with a story from last November about an unfortunate incident near the Connell Highway Stop & Shop.

Otherwise, we find ourselves covering a lot of stories about one of Newport’s primary economic drivers; its restaurants. Last weekend, one of the city’s most revered spots, TSK, announced it was closing its doors at the end of the year, and it turned out that a lot of our readers wanted to know why.

Likewise, for those of you who haven’t been able to make it to a Battle Chefs event at The Revolving Door Restaurant, keep enjoying our video recaps and hopefully we’ll see you down there for a fight or two.

Anyhow…here is our top ten posts of the week:
