Newport Vineyards Barrel of Laughs Comedy Show Tonight!

BARREL OF LAUGHS COMEDY SHOW: GREG STONE

Join us for an evening of wine and a barrel of laughs as host and comedian Jeremy Furtado welcomes comedians from around the region and headliner Greg Stone!

While it’s often said that tragedy plus time equals comedy, it could just as easily be said that enthusiasm minus caution equals comedian Greg Stone. Regarded by his peers as one of the funniest storytellers in New York, Greg is a fixture at many of Manhattan’s top comedy clubs and independent shows, where he shares true stories of the highs and lows caused by his lack of inhibition. Greg has recently performed on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, TruTV’s “Friends of the People,” and AXS TV’s “Gotham Comedy Live.” Bowing to the increasing demand that he be heard and not seen, Greg has also been featured on Sirius/XM Radio’s The Bennington Show, hit podcasts like “Tuesdays with Stories” and not-a-hit-but-still-hilarious podcasts like “The Rad Dudecast,” which Greg co-hosts with Anthony DeVito and Brendan Eyre. Not bad for a guy who spends a good portion of his spare time posing action figures in his bedroom. Ask him politely and he’ll tell you about the time he drunkenly jumped on stage with Michael Bolton.

Make it dinner and a show with reservations at BRIX Restaurant. Reservations required, please call 401.848.5161 x2.

Saturday, October 28
$25 in advance
$20 for Case Club/Cru Club members (Discount Code Required – refer to email or call 401.848.5161×0 for code)
8:00 p.m. – Showtime

Hope’s Path in the John C. Whitehead Preserve

This week we walked on Hope’s Path from West Main Road in Little Compton to the Dundery Brook Trail. The trail was about a mile and a half to the Dundery Brook trail entrance and back. Beautiful trail through the woods, with stone walls, ponds, birdhouses and more. Here are a couple pictures from our walk. 

Some of the trail has these raised platforms 

But most of the trail is a path through the woods

Just beautiful….. 

Even a little bridge!

Mr. Peckham will highlight its differences from the sky we view today and explain the implications of a truly dark sky, nineteenth-century residents’ need for pre-dawn chores, historic fears of the dark, and past misconceptions concerning comets, meteors and even eclipses.
