Where should I eat in Newport, RI?

I'm in Rhode Island for a business trip, with some but not all meals provided at the conference. I'm on my own for two dinners and one lunch, and I'd like to make the most of them. Are there any places (that aren't exorbitantly expensive) I shouldn't miss? Please recommend me some deliciousness!

Whale-watching recommendations in New England

For my birthday in mid-July, my wife and I would like to go whale-watching somewhere in New England. Given our location (SE Connecticut), we would prefer not to drive quite so far as Maine, but Portsmouth would be OK. We're looking for recommendations/horror stories about locations, companies, and so forth. Tell us your New England whale-watching experiences! [more inside]

Best books on colonial American history?

I was recently looking at my family tree and curious about the lives of my ancestors, many of whom emigrated to Massachusetts/Rhode Island/New York from England in the early 1600s. Especially interested in books about Rhode Island and particularly anything about Roger Williams or Stephen Hopkins, who are great-great-etc grandfathers of mine (but also interested in just learning about everyday life for colonists, and what the transition was like moving from England). Assume I know little beyond the basics of American history.

Green Acres Redux: From Boston Metro to NH or RI

My husband and I live in Boston. As part of its annual employee survey, his employer is asking whether he would be willing to relocate. The most likely locations would be facilities in southern New Hampshire or northern Rhode Island. It would be theoretically possible to stay where we live and he would reverse commute to those locations, but based on past experience, it would be over an hour each way. So, if his job were moved, we might relocate—and so we turn to you, MeFi, for your perspectives on those locations and whether we’d be happy living there or nearby. [more inside]

Reliable watch repair in Providence?

A while ago, I had the battery to my (nice) watch replaced while on vacation. Since it was water resistant to a decent depth, I had the store do a water pressure test, post-replacement. Not too long after, but definitely after the vacation, the watch stopped working. It would also fog up inside the watch face. I want my watch to work again, but I've lost a bit of faith in the average jewelry store. I live in Providence RI. Do you know any reputable, reliable, and skilled watch repair persons?
