Providence: Points of Interest

IHN is heading over to Providence this October in order to host our very first festival! We talked a bit about bands/music of Prov/RI, but now its time to switch our attention elsewhere – these are some of the place in Prov. we’d like to visit (and some of those we already visited, but don’t mind going back and revisiting!).



Tea in Sahara – Moroccan-inspired cafe offering tea, coffee & homemade fare, including tajines & paninis. TiS also offers live music and is thee place to catch live sets by Skyjelly.
