Kudos & Congrats to The Wild Colonial, which has been selected by Esquire magazine as one of the best bars in America for 2007.
Not for Nothing, but the Colonial has previously been heralded in the Phoenix for offering "a thinking person's pint."
To celebrate the Esquire accolade, the Colonial is hosting an event Thursday night in which Red Sox tickets will be raffled off, to benefit the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. This kind of thing shows how the WC is not just a fine place to have a drink, but a community-minded institution that plays a positive role in Providence. (Disclosure: N4N is a charter member of the WC softball team, and yes, I went 3-for-3 last night, and yes, I'm hitting above .500, thank you very much.)
