NARRAGANSETT- Thereâ€™s a new guy in town. Today, Sept. 20, is the grand opening for Hankâ€™s Down South, a new barbecue restaurant and bar in Galilee.
Located at 33 State St., Hankâ€™s Down South bar and barbecue restaurant is not your average venue in Narragansett. Instead of focusing on seafood, owner Amy Mason said that she wanted to use her experience with barbecue to bring authentic southern cuisine to the fishermen.
Mason said one of the best features of Hankâ€™s is the smoker.

SOUTH KINGSTOWNâ€”Aside from the obvious proximity between South Kingstown and Prout, Wednesdayâ€™s Division I-South girls volleyball game was a critical contest given the path each squad had worn through the first third of the season.
The Rebels (1-2 D-I South) and Crusaders (2-2 D-I South) each entered the game having beaten Chariho but lost to both North Kingstown and Coventry, meaning third place â€“ and potentially playoff seeding down the line â€“ was up for grabs.
Waves have been hard to come by for the past two months.
Contest organizers kept their fingers crossed, in hopes of having surf for the 2nd Annual â€śCatch A Curlâ€ť 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.
â€śWe were very fortunate to get sunny skies, warm air temperatures, and nice surf for the second straight year,â€ť contest director Mistral Dobson said. â€śThe level of surfing was up several notches this year for sure.â€ť
NARRAGANSETTâ€“The deck was certainly stacked against the Narragansett girls soccer team as it entered Tuesday afternoonâ€™s contest with a veteran Lincoln squad.
Not only were the wounds of an 8-2 loss to Burrillville fresh but the Mariners also had a littany of injuries to deal with â€“ including one to starting goalkeeper junior Ceili Oâ€™Connnell.
For 40 minutes Narragansett more than held its own as replacement keeper freshman Finnian Duncan and the Mariner defense â€“ particularly Sarah Lubic and Grace Castro â€“ kept the Lions off the board in the first half.
WAKEFIELDâ€”The Prout girlsâ€™ soccer team fell to 0-4-0 on the season after a 3-1 loss to Exeter West-Greenwich Tuesday afternoon.
Although EWG jumped out to leads of 1-0 and 3-1, Prout will look back at many missed quality chances to cut the lead and eventually equalize the match as one of the main reasons for the defeat.
â€śWe canâ€™t have certain people showing up at certain timesâ€”everyone needs to be showing up,â€ť Prout coach Ria Carroll said, â€śweâ€™re a good team, we just need to mesh togetherâ€”we need to put it all together.â€ť
WAKEFIELD â€“ The good start to the 2013 season for the Prout boys soccer team just seems to keep getting better.
After three big wins to start the year, the Crusaders came out and dominated the first half of game four Wednesday afternoon and rolled on from there for a 3-1 win over visiting Tiverton.
