Daylight Savings got you down? Stop mourning that lost hour of sleep and celebrate the good things, like state-wide food competitions! In case you needed another reason to love Rhode Island, head downtown to The Spot Underground right now for The Great Cupcake Championship. Some of our favorite food trucks will be there reppin’ Thayer Street. According to Flour Girls Baking, tickets for today’s cupcake showdown are sold out (boo!), but it’s worth jotting down and following the event’s Facebook page to find out when the next face-off will take place. After all, if $10 gets you all-you-can-eat cupcakes with milk and coffee, imagine what the Mijo’s/Taco Truck duel will get you…
