The PWCVB Invites Residents, Visitors to Take a Bite Out of Winter with 2nd Annual Winter Restaurant Weeks

The popular dining event will feature more than 80 restaurants dealing discounts for two weeks

PROVIDENCE –It’s back! The Providence Warwick Convention & Visitors Bureau (PWCVB) is once again heating up the Rhode Island winter with a cold weather edition of Providence Restaurant Weeks.

The restaurants love it. It’s just a great event – and a great excuse to try any number of our great restaurants.”
