Wandering around East Providence, RI. A very cool town! And here, a late lunch after 5 hours on the road. We ate at Providence Coal Fired Pizza. The food was amazing! We started with some of their special chicken wings and followed it up with some personal pizzas. Everything was absolutely fantastic! And Stephanie, our waitress, was absolutely wonderful! If you're ever in Providence, check this place out. I guarantee you'll love it!
During one of our many walkabouts several years ago, we happened upon a Greek restaurant somewhere in the outskirts of Ithaca, NY. The food was exceptional. Ever since then we have been trying to find this restaurant again. We have had absolutely no luck.
Yesterday during one of our occasional Internet searches for this place, we discovered Ithaca's famous Souvlaki House restaurant. I say it is famous because they say it is, having been in business for years and a place where apparently countless Cornell students have had many enjoyable meals. However, this is the first time it has ever come to light during our many searches for Greek food in Ithaca. Regardless, we decided to head out on the motorcycle with this as our destination.
As we arrived, we discovered that an adjacent street, East Buffalo Street, was completely filled with people and their skateboards. We had inadvertently encountered the 2013 Ithaca Skate Jam. This was an amazing thing to watch. It certainly made me realize that my own skateboarding skills are exceptionally lame! These folks were doing some crazy stuff at really high speed! Of particular interest was the absence of ambulances! Yeah, it was pretty wild. Click here to see see some videos that others have captured of this event.
I did manage to capture a few photographs of my own of some of these brave souls.
As for the Greek food, well, this wasn't the restaurant we had been looking for: The food was decent but not memorable, and the waitress was pretty miserable. We'll just have to stay on our quest.
