Dear Tiff and Earl,

I’m planning a date with my girlfriend this weekend, but neither of us know Providence very well. You two have been here for a while—any ideas on where we could have a fun night out?


Looking for Love (and Food)


Dear Looking for Love,

For a romantic evening, why not head to Federal Hill? Fine dining and good wine is abundant on this restaurant-populated street, and though I haven’t been taken there myself, I’ve been told it’s marvelous.

Also, why not check out WaterFire while the weather is still nice? I recently went on a first date there and had a wonderful time.

Granted, I haven’t heard back from the guy and I’ve sent him multiple texts, so it might not have went as well as I thought.

To be honest, I don’t know how qualified I am to be answering this question.




Hey there, Lost Lovers,

I’d suggest a romantic visit to Kennedy Plaza. Love in the air truly smells like the RIPTA pulling in.

As the sun sets, maybe try to make a move on one of the comfortably moist benches. If you’re lucky, you’ll be greeted by the cavorting rodents which are abundant in Providence’s loveliest park.

Once the sun goes down, I’d suggest taking the classic 55 bus to Chad Brown Street. Here you’ll be greeted with an ambience only surpassed by the people you’ll meet as you waltz up the sidewalk. If it were me, I’d be packin’, but you do you, man.

Good luck loving,
