JUST LIKE MOM’S
Mike’s Kitchen, Cranston
Mike’s food–calamari, polenta with sausages, stuffed artichokes–is simple Italian that will keep you coming back for more. There’s no sign, because it’s tucked inside a VFW hall, so look for VFW Post 2396 and follow the garlic. Hours can be irregular, so call ahead. Entrées: from $10. 170 Randall St. 401-946-5320

CURIO COLLECTION
What Cheer Antiques,
Providence
Vintage books, clothing, jewelry, vinyl records, embroidered fabrics, ephemera and maps, Victorian hardware, and other surprises crowd this underground shop. Part history lesson, part treasure hunt. 7 South Angell St. 401-861-4244

ROOM, BOARD & ROUGH IT
Stepping Stone Ranch,
West Greenwich
In addition to shorter trail rides, Stepping Stone offers an overnight for experienced equestrians with grub and bunkhouse accommodations ($160). The day starts with a three-hour ride through Arcadia Park, with bucolic views, covered bridges, and a swim break (for the riders). Guests then return to the barn for a cozy campfire meal before turning in at the group bunkhouse. After breakfast, you’re back in the saddle for the morning. 201 Escoheag Hill Road. 401-397-3725; www.steppingstoneranch.com

BEST IN SHOW
Brown/Trinity Playwrights’ Repertory Theatre,
Providence
For little more than the price of a movie ticket ($12), see performances by actors and directors at this training camp for the Trinity Repertory Company. Leeds Theatre, 77 Waterman St. 401-863-2838; brown.edu/btprep

A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT
