Caribbean Ramen! Jerk Chicken Tonkotsu-based Ramen... oh my oh! Fun and quite delicious!
2) Mayflower Motel
Decent motel just for the night. Relatively clean; no bugs/roaches; hot shower; toilet flushes; hard mattress... I don’t understand why it’s rated less than 2 stars... totally livable! Or, my expectations are super low, but hey, I spent days in refugee camps without an access to running water, toilets, toilet paper, electricity or basically anything. Conclusion: Materialism and capitalism are pure EVIL.
3) Cedarhurst Café
4) Yale University Art Gallery (http://rblr.co/01vX0)
... while the guests from Poland are exploring the university campus... Surprise, surprise! Turned out it was a great museum full of impressive collections of art pieces from the ancient times to modern days from around the globe. This free gallery is a must-see while in town!
5) Brown University
Campus walk; kinda reminded me of the Univ. of Delaware with the brownstone buildings and open square with lush green grass in the middle. A statue of a standing brown bear was iconic! lol

17) Hoppy Tr’Ale – Tonewood Brewing Co.
Freshies (American Pale Ale): Smooth, clean, hoppy, light with slightest hint of bitterness that go well with the hop. Lovely summer-time starter! (4.5/5)
SAMSO (Dry-Hopped Saison): Yet another clean, light and hoppy ale with floral notes. Good quality but somewhat similar to Freshies in style and notes.
Revolution (Coffee Porter): Medium-light bodies Porter with lots of coffee beans and slightest hint of vanilla, yet unsweetened. Tastes burst even chilled. No need for it to warm-up and/or open-up. By far, my fav! Decided to carry home a 32oz crowler. (5/5)
Taking out Rift (American IPA) and Improv (Double Dry-Hopped DIPA).
Ended up taking out the 32oz crowler of Revolution after tasting it.
