Having already delivered a thrilling host of hits and collisions in its inaugural season of play, Rhode Island’s first semi-professional rugby team makes a push for playoff seeding with its last scheduled home game. Formed in January from the bitter core of Arctic permafrost, the Rhode Island Rebellion squad has quickly developed into a fearsome member of the eight-team USA Rugby League with its hard-hitting roster and unquenchable thirst for on-field dominance. Boasting four hard-earned points thus far in the season, the Rebellion seeks to establish itself as a perennial powerhouse with a strong conclusion to its opening campaign.

The Rhode Island Convention Center invites visitors to peruse hundreds of exhibitor stands, a full-scale model home, a fine-arts showcase, live cooking demonstrations, and kid's entertainment.Though catalogs and websites typically have numerous photos of home furnishings, they can never fully show how a new piece will look in an actual house. The RIBA Home Show sheds light on print-to-life home-improvement mysteries, hosting dozens of exhibitors from across New England as they hawk house essentials ranging from cabinetry and lighting design to plumbing work and air purification. Designer couches stand ready to have their dimensions measured, colors matched, and cushions napped on, and photography, paintings, and pottery from area artisans inspire residents' upcoming redecorating projects. The show also sheds light on homes’ outer environs with landscaping and lighting installations shining a spotlight on potential yard transformations.

Bingo winners earn cash prizes of up to $5,500 by completing their board first or legally changing their name to Bingo Winner.
