East Providence Yacht Club

9 Pier Road, East Providence

Port? Starboard? Doesn’t matter at the East Providence Yacht Club. Drop anchor on either side of this amazing place that overlooks the majestic Providence River. Grab a spot on the outdoor patio or saunter back inside to a function room that had a fierce poker game going on when we popped in; but always be nice and heed the “No Foul Language” sign on display. 9 Pier Road, East Providence

Keno: Yes
Bonus kitsch: The captain statue watching over the proceedings. You might even catch him rocking out to live outdoor music in the summertime. 

Celtic Pub

755 Broadway, Pawtucket

When we overheard someone announce with great hubris “I made Fireball fudge!” we knew we were in a solid spot. Several tube-style TVs adorn the walls for your viewing enjoyment and a window AC unit will surely cool you from that Fireball fudge (if you’re lucky enough to snag a bite before it vanishes). 755 Broadway, Pawtucket

Keno: No
Bonus kitsch: A working cigarette machine! Plus the nod to law enforcement with the various Police Department badges on display behind the bar.
