Attend Inaugurations 2: Electric Boogaloo

Eileen has already posted about the Inauguration Day gatherings at PPAC and the State House in Providence. But I know you're saying to yourself, "Hey, I'm an Islander. As far as I'm concerned, Providence might as well be on Mars. Aren't there any events going on here on Aquidneck Island that I can attend?"

Indeed there is. The Jane Pickens Theater in Newport's Washington Square will be splashing the inauguration across the Big Screen in high-definition from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Admission is free, but you have to go to the Barack Obama website to sign up. They've got room for 312 people, but as of 6:00 PM Saturday evening 160 have already signed up (including me), so grab 'em while they're hot.
