When COVID cases decreased enough to allow for some shopping, Westminster Street got creative with Open Air Saturdays.
The usually heavily trafficked thoroughfare was closed to vehicles, allowing shoppers to wander the street while giving each other plenty of space. The event had to be postponed due to an uptick in cases, but business owners bouncing back from a long COVID winter’s nap are excited to continue this awesome initiative starting May 8.
Adam Buck, owner of Small Point Cafe, says, “Open Air Saturdays were awesome and got people to wander around the neighborhood and check out a lot of the shops and restaurants on Westminster Street. It was a bummer when we had to shut it down during the surge, but we’re excited to debut a brand new Coffee Cart with a house made Blood Orange Nitro and authentic Thai Iced Tea that we were able to acquire through RI’s Take It Outside program.” Some delish caffeine and sidewalk shopping? Sign me up!
