Bayberry Beer Hall

This weekend, thanks to some good friends, we stumbled upon the coolest new Beer Hall in the West Side of Providence. However, it definitely doesn’t feel like you are in Providence. Think Brooklyn NY with the cool industrial vibe, communal tables, and antique light fixtures. The place drew me in immediately.

Bayberry is owned by Tom and Natalie Dennen who seem like the nicest couple (with the cutest kid!) – just check out the Bayberry Instagram and follow their journey from building to opening. Their passion for doing everything local from the lighting to the signage is what makes them unique- and inspiring.

When you enter, take a seat at one of the communal tables and mull over the menus that are placed on each table or go right up to the counter and place your order. The bartenders will serve you your drink and give you a buzzer for your food. When your food is ready you go up to the beautiful open kitchen, grab your plate, and bring it back to your table.

Now let’s get to the good stuff… GUYS. They had a ROSÉ CIDER. Right now you can order it by the .355ML bottle, however the awesome bartenders let me know that soon they will have it on tap. WHAT! We also had a house-made pretzel with mustard butter(yum!) and roasted smashed red bliss potatoes with olive oil and garlic. Everything melded together so perfectly from the food, to the drinks, to the atmosphere, to the service.

This is the place I have been looking for. A gathering place for good conversation with great friends over some killer drinks. I already can not wait to go back and bring everyone I know. Cheers!

Weekend Recap: NJ Food Guide

I spent this past weekend with my family back home in Jersey to see my little sisters spring musical. It was The Little Mermaid and she was one of the eels. Despite being sick she killed it – awesome job Nina!

Besides going to see the play we had another thing on the agenda: hit up as many of my favorite North Jersey food stops in 24 hours as possible. It is safe to say I officially feel gross and I am ready to get back on track today – after I finish this bagel.


When we arrived we started off having lunch at my all time favorite pizza place – Rose’s Pizza in Garfield. They have THE BEST Sicilian pie you will ever have. Also their Eggplant Parm is incredible and their sandwiches are so fresh and so big. If you are in the area you have to stop in. Order a Sicilian Pie – well done, sixteen slices. And don’t worry the leftovers are just as good.


After the play we had to hit up White Castle. My boyfriend had never been so for his first time in North Jersey I skipped out on White Manna and went for some Murder Burgers. Fries, Onion Rings, Chicken Rings, Sliders, Chicken Breast Sliders, Mozzarella Sticks… OH. MY. GOD. Do I regret it? Maybe. Would I do it again? Probably.

The next morning we had to take a quick trip before breakfast to get a dozen bagels from Fairlawn Bagel to bring back to Jersey. I got a mix of Everything, Sesame, and a couple Cinnamon Raisin. Next time I am taking a page out of my cousins book and getting a dozen Everything Bagels.

After the bagel pit stop we had to hit up a Jersey Diner for Breakfast. We hit up the Cit Chat Diner in Lodi, and had some awesome breakfast food and even more laughs. I absolutely love when all of my cousins are together. After the diner we had to stop in at a Wawa and get some beverages for the road.



The last stop on the way home was at Shake Shack for lunch. Now I have never had In and Out and I know there is a big debate between which one is better, but Shake Shack burgers are so incredibly flavorful. And the cheese fries are on point. Oh, and the shakes. My burger was a little too rare for my liking, but by the time I finished my fries I was so full I could not move.

We finished the journey home half dead in a food coma, and then immediately got into bed. I am very VERY ready for some lemon water and a nice salad for lunch today. How was your weekend?

Best RI Bars for St. Patrick’s Day


Happy St. Patrick’s Day friends! This is the one day a year that everyone gets to be Irish for a day! Being Irish myself I can attest that we like to have a good time which is why it is no surprise that everyone loves to partake in this day of celebrating. So grab your Guinness, your shot of Jameson, a plate of Corned Beef and Cabbage and have a good time! And I know just the places to do it…

01 Murphy’s Providence which is half pub/half New York style deli. Pick up one of the most amazing Corned Beef Sandwiches right here! You might just see a certain someone here tonight… Website Here

02 McBride’s Pub is another one of my favorites. They have some great bartenders who are always good for a laugh and an all-around awesome vibe Website Here

03 Fat Belly’s – any of their five locations are bound to be a good time! Be careful – some locations are smaller than others. My suggestion? Head to the Warwick location which is a little bigger. Same great food and atmosphere without the “standing room only” feel of the smaller locations Website Here

04 Mc Kinley’s Pub in East Greenwich is sure to be a good time! Head over here late night for some cheap drinks and a lot of excitement. This place will definitely be packed!     Check it Out Here!

05 Doherty’s Ale House is the place to go for Beer lovers. With 100+ beers on tap you are bound to find something that you like Check it Out Here!

06 O’Brien’s Pub is the perfect place to go if you are from the Newport Area. Great food and great vibes all around. Patiently waiting for it to be summer time so I can spend my days on their patio outside Website Here

Of course there are tons of other bars and restaurants that are holding St. Patrick’s Day festivities, but if you pick one of these awesome Irish Pubs you are definitely bound for a good time!
