Best of The Blast: October 4-10

By  |  0 Comments

Last week, we met Liz Vice, discovered Rhode Island’s unofficial car…and learned where you’re not going to want to drive it for the next 6 weeks.

It’s been a beautiful Columbus Day weekend. We’ve really been enjoying the Rogue Island Comedy Festival, which wraps up tonight.

One odd note: It’s a bit surreal to walk out of Parlor after laughing through two and a half hours of comedy only to walk down Thames when the bars have let out and it seems like everyone is crying. If we didn’t know any better, we’d have thought that the police were using tear gas.

So everyone get better at enjoying themselves downtown. Otherwise we’re going to be in for a very long winter.

Anyhow, here are the top 10 stories of the week…
