Remembering Rhode Island's
Good Ol' Days
Who can forget "We're going to the Tent tonight, to see [fill in the celebrity]." It was always "the Tent" even when it became a building. There was a little restaurant nearby in a colonial-looking house that everyone went to before the show. Anyone remember the name of it?
The Golden Lantern
Loved it !! Last time I was there we saw Jerry Seinfeld. Boy, those seats were narrow!!! What was great was most acts were in the round - nearly every seat was a good seat.
My wife's friend had her graduation there when she graduated from Warwick Vets High School in 1992. I remember one time there was going to be a Willie Nelson concert there, and all of these protestors were outside the Tent. I drove by there with my brother and some friends, and we screamed out the windows of the car "Willie Rules!!" as we drove by to rile people up.
1995. Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band. Fantastic !
My graduation from Warwick Vets was there in 1980
