Sea to Table Tasting

Take an epicurean tour of the sea, East Bay style. Rhode Island is home to a thriving seafood culture and industry with a deep heritage and bright future. Spend an evening sampling the harvest from some of the richest waters in the world — or as we like to call it, our backyard. Join us at The Barn at historic Mount Hope Farm for a night of locally-sourced seafood, craft beer and wine.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
