  • Sydney is a new Australian inspired cafe located just south of the Providence train station. They offer a full coffee, espresso and loose tea selection as well as house-made baked goods, breakfast, lunch and grab-and-go items. Signature dishes include an avocado smash, mini quiches, a roasted broccoli sandwich with ricotta salata, and their signature salad with grilled baffoni farms chicken, fresh citrus, slivered almonds and a creamy lemon-herb arbequina olive oil emulsion.
  • Many of the ingredients are locally sourced, Sydney offers free wi-fi, and they have options for vegans.
  • Word on the street is their avocado smash is AMAZING!

  • The Spelling Bee event is all ages – part of AS220’s mission is that all events are all ages – but most likely the competitors will be primarily adults. (The event starts at 7pm this year, so it’s quite possible that we’ll have a few younger competitors.)

He has sold five million albums worldwide and garnered awards and nods from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association, Billboard Magazine, and the American Music Association. Sixteen years later, Gilman is eager to come back and share his new music and his new sound with his fans on NBC’s THE VOICE: SEASON 11.
