RHODE ISLAND (June 7, 2017) – Eat Drink RI is thrilled to present a series of exclusive culinary experiences showcasing the bounty of summer in the Ocean State. The culinary marketing and events company, fresh off the successful sixth annual Eat Drink RI Festival, is partnering with Blackbird Farm in Smithfield, RI and Matunuck Oyster & Vegetable Farm in South Kingstown, RI for a series of eight open-air explorations. These curated, one-of-a-kind culinary adventures can only be experienced with Eat Drink RI.
