The weekend: Beachstock, line dancing & mimosa painting brunch among 33 things to do in northern RI

Kevin Herschen will be at Dev's Tavern Saturday night.

Northern, RI – It’s the weekend northern Rhode Island, and rain can’t stop us from enjoying free time with plenty to see and do close to home.

While more nasty weather is expected on Saturday, there are plenty of activities and live music indoors. For the few outdoor gatherings, we always recommend checking with the venue or organizer before you head out.

This week, Lindy’s venue – the Plastic Palace – reopens with live music on Friday and Saturday. It’s the first Friday of the month, which mean line dancing at Toti’s, and on Saturday, the business will host a comedy night.

Whatever you do with your time, we always hope you enjoy it, and consider a stop in with our great local businesses and organizations.

So Many Rhodes will open Lindy’s Plastic Palace for the 2024 season Friday night.
