What's Up Newp Newsletter for Nov. 19
What’s Up This Weekend: Ice Skating, Holidays at the Newport Mansions, Sparkling Lights, and more
Today is Friday, November 19. That’s right, it is not March 2.
⚓️ Overnight, our website reverted back to March 2 and we woke up to our top story being that Governor Raimondo was selected to become Secretary of Commerce and every story since then deleted. We’re working quickly on the issue and apologize for any inconvenience or confusion the website may have caused overnight. If you visit our website today and don’t see current content, please flush your cache/clear your browsing history and try again. Hopefully, we can work with our development team to pinpoint why this happened and make sure it never happens again.
⚓️ Because of all of that, this newsletter is running a bit late and abbreviated. We’ll be back on our regular schedule tomorrow.
