Review: Habanero

Review: Habanero

I love Habanero. I spent my formative years– both high school and college– in the Clifton area, and Habanero hasn’t been there the entire time, but it feels like it has. When that new kid on the block, Chipotle, moved into Clifton, I laughed. “Ha […]

Shameless Plug: Hair!

Shameless Plug: Hair!

While you’re in Newport, perhaps checking out La Mexicana or York Street Cafe, check out Falcon Theatre’s production of Hair, which opens tonight. We’re sold out for tomorrow, but all of the other nights still have seats available. The show is great– lots of fun, […]
