BELLINGHAM -- Brian Bender, the owner of Dennyâ€™s Liquors, hasnâ€™t been so excited since Coors crossed the Mississippi.
After an absence of more than 20 years, Yuengling beer returns to package stores in the Bay State today, offering Rhode Island beer lovers yet another reason to spend their money on the other side of the state line.
â€śThis is big,â€ť says Bender, whose store is a few hundred yards over the Woonsocket line. â€śI havenâ€™t seen demand like this since Coors came East.â€ť
PROVIDENCE â€” When Lincoln High senior Alex D'Aloisio awoke on Saturday morning, he didn't feel that well. He figured it was probably just nerves, as he was about to attempt to claim a second-straight title at the R.I. Interscholastic Wrestling Championships.
â€śOnce I got here (to the Providence Career & Technical Academy field house), I started to feel it in my gut; I was kind out of it,â€ť he confessed.
