Do Over Day: Saturday, April 18th

Rhode Islanders are finally coming out of hibernation after this snowy, chilly winter–and we’re ready to make up for lost time. Start planning for Saturday, April 18th, the second annual Do-Over Day, organized by, the RI Hospitality Association, and Rhode Island’s first gentleman, Andy Moffit.


Shops, restaurants, hotels and entertainment venues around the state are offering amazing specials, including several downtown.

  • Entertainment: Consider booking a La Gondola package, buying discounted tickets for Ringling Bros. at the Dunk, or getting discounted tickets for select shows at The Vets and PPAC.
  • Hotels: Take advantage of getaway packages at the Omni Providence, Marriott Providence, and Hilton Providence.
  • Shopping: HomeStyle is offering shoppers a glass heart token with purchases of $10 or more, and Alphagraphics is giving a 10% discount when customers mention Do-over Day.
  • Dining: Make reservations to dine at Cafe Nuovo, Shula’s 347 Grill, Ten Prime Steak & Sushi, and LUXE Burger Bar. Mention Do-Over Day to receive discounts and/or complimentary apps.
