Cars, Comedy, Craft Beer & More This Weekend

By  |  0 Comments

We’re calling it the unofficial start of “The Season”.

The start and duration of Newport, RI’s tourist season is pretty subjective. Some might declare it when sushi returns to the Cooke House. Others will put it when 22 Portside opens. Purists will declare its when schools get out in June. We go with a different arbitrary definition, namely when we start to really, really want to be at two or more places at the exact same time. That’s happening a lot this weekend. Lets take a look at what’s on the agenda…


Newport Craft Beer Festival VIB Event 8-10pm

A much smaller craft beer event than Saturday’s sessions, the Very Important Beer event is always the first to sell out. It’s hosted at the Newport Storm Brewery and features plenty of the highest-octane brews available in RI. Some beers aren’t actually available anywhere else but this event, as they’ve been specially brewed or blended for the night, never to be seen again.

As we said, it is sold out, so if you didn’t manage to get yourself a ticket, the decision of what to do after dinner tonight will be a bit easier…

The Wasted Talent Show 7:30-10pm

Hosted by the greatest six-pack ever seen behind a stand-up mic, Doug Key, The Wasted Talent Show is held the last weekend of (almost) every month at Studio 3 (on the third floor of One Pelham East.) It’s pretty much guaranteed to be the funniest two hours you’ll have in Newport this month.

If you have a sense of humor, we can’t recommend The Wasted Talent Show more. If you don’t, go anyway. Doug needs that $15 a lot more than you do.

The Z-Boys 10pm-1am

One of Newport’s hottest bands, the Z-Boys are guaranteed to bring a crowd to Pour Judgement. Their unique style of surf-rock has made them a local favorite.

The Teledynes & The Red Pennies 9pm-1am

Newport’s premiere rockabilly band, The Teledynes team up with their pals The Red Pennies to take over The Cafe at Parlor tonight.

So this is just Friday night. Wait until you see what’s happening Saturday…
