I wasn't really hungry anyway ... I seldom am first thing in the morning ... so eating hadn't even crossed my mind. I just grabbed my keys and headed for the door.

Food Fights events Celebrate iced coffee in July, ice cream in August If you're looking for a culinary adventure this summer, join one of Rhode Island Food Fights' virtual passport events, which lets participants sample treats from restaurants across the state and vote on their favorite spot to determine the best of the best. The month of July is the 7th annual iced coffee summer celebration, while Aug. 1 kicks off the month-long 3rd annual Search for the #BestScoopShopRI. Other upcom- ing events are Best Noodles in September, Best Tacos in October, and Best Pizza in November. "It's a way to find new places and find the best food around," Jim Nellis, of R.I. Food Fights, told The Valley Breeze. "People know if it's a Rhode Island Food Fights event, it will have the best restaurants participating and the largest number of restaurants participat- ing." To join any of the month-long events, purchase a passport full of coupons to use at 20-30 establishments and visit them on your own time within the month. This month 28 coffee shops across Rhode Island are participating. With the coupons, you'll receive one free iced coffee at each establishment. Tickets cost $25, but are a $125 value.
