NARRAGANSETT- There’s a new guy in town. Today, Sept. 20, is the grand opening for Hank’s Down South, a new barbecue restaurant and bar in Galilee.

Contest organizers kept their fingers crossed, in hopes of having surf for the 2nd Annual “Catch A Curl” ESA contest, held this past Saturday. ESA kids had a great time in some fun surf, with the event held at the Westerly Town Beach.
“We were very fortunate to get sunny skies, warm air temperatures, and nice surf for the second straight year,” contest director Mistral Dobson said. “The level of surfing was up several notches this year for sure.”
