4 CUMBERLAND / LINCOLN FEBRUARY 1-7, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION open-concept kitchen and a rentable party room including an additional full bar and a projector screen for presenta- tions. The R1 owners expect to host up to 100 events a month across the com- plex, said Hezemans. Glass panes around the perimeter of the space allow guests to view the go-kart tracks from their tables, giv- ing them access to the entertainment below without the noise of being on the lower level. A fleet of all-electric go-karts eliminates any worry of gas fumes disturbing dining guests, and the restaurant blocks out sound from the tracks below. Dutch designer Hans Snoeijen hon- ored the building's industrial past in his use of materials, outfitting the restau- rant with 1960s light fixtures and brick facades from a factory in Holland. Sheet metal panes – once part of tin roofs in the southern United States – cover portions of the 25-foot-tall walls. Owners say Fuel's menu veers sharply from the vending machine concessions most go-karting destina- tions might offer. One such draw is the restaurant's state-of-the-art, rotating pizza oven that can prepare a large pizza in less than two minutes. In addition to pizza, they plan to serve "upscale sports pub fare with premium ingredients," using locally sourced products from places such as Baffoni's Poultry Farm in Johnston, The Duck and Bunny in Providence and The Ice Cream Machine in Cumberland. FUEL From Page One told The Breeze when work began that the eventual goal for the farm is to make it a year-round destination for community events and to significantly expand programming. Taxpayers voted at last year's Financial Town Meeting to approve the transfer of up to $100,000 from the Capital Fund 50, supplemented by a $400,000 R.I. Department of Environmental Management Open Space recreation grant to bring the total project cost to $500,000. The Lincoln Planning Department recently submitted a second open space grant application for $100,000 or less to expand Chase Farm's parking lot by roughly 50 spots, according to Town Planner Albert Ranaldi. Additional changes underway at the property include renovations to the historic Hot Potato School, or Pullen's Corner School House, along with the 1880 Hannaway Blacksmith Shop.
