I visited Povidence for the first time this weekend to see "Waterfire." It was a unique experience, rivers (canals) on fire, the interesting "alternative" music piped throughout the area. This first visit was impulsive! I parked on Hope Street,at the Brown University, many blocks away, which I later heard was a good thing to do. I want to plan an excursion to this event and appreciate restaurant suggestions to the east of waterfire, on our way back to our parking area. One food vendor told me that on a hot summer day, over 200,000 people visit throughout the evening event!
