Providence, RI
We're trying a new place this month, but it's at a location that may be familiar to many of you. In typical Rhode Island fashion, I'll explain that the venue many years ago used to be the Golden Pacific, one of my favorite Americanized Chinese restaurants when I was a kid going out to dinner with my parents. I'm not sure how long ago the Golden Pacific closed, but the venue went through a few other incarnations, most notably as the Brickyard, a rather odd sports bar with a stock car racing theme. ("The Brickyard" is the nickname for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the annual stock car race there is called the "Brickyard 400.")

The restaurant is fairly easy to find although a bit off the highway, not too far from the Meadowbrook Plaza where the movie theater famously ran "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" for about 600 midnight screenings over a couple of decades. Alas, that movie theater is now the parking lot for a Stop and Shop supermarket.

Before I reduce everyone who knows Warwick to blubbering nostalgia, I'll get on with the important information.

Continue 0.7 miles through several traffic lights, then at a major intersection turn right onto Airport Rd eastbound (wrapping around the IHOP). Continue 1.5 miles, then at another major intersection (Hoxsie Four Corners) turn right onto Warwick Ave (RI-117) southbound (wrapping around the Dave's IGA supermarket). In 1.3 miles, the restaurant will be on your left.

The RIPTA 3 bus goes directly past the restaurant, departing Kennedy Plaza from Berth G at 6:16pm and arriving at 6:48pm.
