(Podcast) That Newport Show – Newport Wine & Food Festival

that newport show

Newport is definitely a party town! The Wine & Food Festival starts September 22 and promises to be THE party of the year. From elegant dinners featuring extraordinary wines, to food tastings, demonstrations, and celebrity guests, it is a great event for foodies, wine connoisseurs, or those of us who just like to dress up for a great party. And if dressing up isn’t your gig, we chat about our experience at a different kind of party; a houseboat party smack dab in the middle of Newport harbor. How did we get there? What was it like? How did we get home? Listen in to find out!

Thank you, Newport Mansions, for sharing this week’s feature photo. 

Show Notes and Links:


THAT NEWPORT SHOW is a weekly podcast sharing the stories and characters that make Newport, Rhode Island, Amercia’s favorite city by the sea.

With each episode, hosts Buck & Helena share their Newport experiences with listeners. There is adventure, dining, shopping, musings, mumblings, and a lot of laughs.

blackandwhiteBuck and Helena are a couple of old punks who survived what they call “the toddler years” (plus a few extra). As they slowly regain their sanity, they are once again venturing out into the world to get their party on. They may be a bit slower these days, but they are also a lot wiser. And honestly, a lot more fun. Read more about your hosts.

While we will feature a ton of what Newport has to offer both visitors and residents, the essence of show is about two grown-ups who really have no business being grown-ups, and the things they get up to in Newport – as well as at home on their small New England horse farm. It’s about adventure. It’s about romance. It’s about observing the myriad people who walk about the city. It’s about life, parenting, partying, working, aaaaand reflecting. Newport just happens to be the backdrop to all of this. And what a beautiful backdrop it is.

Every Thursday the Sparkle and Boom Podcast Network airs a new episode of That Newport Show. You can stream or download episodes from our website, or listen to the show on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, Blubrry, or your favorite podcatcher app.  We hope you’ll join us!
