‘Providence is open for business’: Elorza encourages people to visit and dine in the city center as restrictions are eased

After more than a year of tight restrictions, today is the first of two key dates in RI’s reopening: Capacity limits increase to 80% for all industries! “Part of this announcement is making sure we are creating enough of a critical mass, people are coming down, there’s enough foot traffic, there’s enough of a buzz and vibrancy so that our shops can thrive once again.” Mayor @Jorge_Elorza is marking the big day w/ hospitality leaders.

“We’re waiving as many fees as we possibly can, but we also have a team at City Hall for anyone who wants to come outdoors, we’re walking them through the process, providing some technical assistance,” he said. Flanked by leaders in the hospitality industry, Elorza said the city will continue to offer free two-hour parking in spots of the city, waive certain fees for businesses, and continue to provide loans to struggling businesses.

Starting tomrorow, the city is bringing back ‘Open Air Saturdays’ on Westminster Street. The event is one way Elorza hopes to draw Rhode Islanders to the capital city. “Providence is open for business once again,” Elorza said. “We are excited to safely welcome folks back to our vibrant downtown.”

One of the newest restaurants in Providence, Kin Southern Table + Bar, will be holding a block party to celerbate Juneteeth, owner Julia Broome announced at Friday’s press conference. “I opened my establishment six weeks ago during the pandemic. Believe me, I was hesitant, I was anxious. I still am a little bit. But it seems like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel,” Broome said. “We will be activating our corner of Providence,” said Colin Geoffroy, owner of G Pub and Sarto. Geoffroy said G Pub will be opening a beer garden on Memorial Day weekend.
