Gator’s Pub continues to serve beach volleyball to Blackstone Valley

NORTH SMITHFIELD — When Dave Houle returned from a vacation to Florida's East Coast back in the fall of 1990, he greeted fellow Gator's Pub co-owner Tom McGee with what he deemed a “fantastic idea” to bolster interest in their new venture.
“He had watched some beach volleyball down there outside a restaurant, and he thought it'd be great to start one of our own,” McGee explained recently of his former partner's notion. “He just raved about it. What sold us was there was nothing like it in our area at the time. We were out here in the boonies, and we needed to put ourselves on the map.”
