With #FLOCKAGATE behind us, and the thrill of the official artist announcement long over, BlogDH is excited to present an equally as important lineup: Main Green #EEEEATS. This year BCA #blessed us with seven local vendors to satisfy our cravings during Friday’s and Saturday’s concerts. Check out the rookies and old-timers below–nourish, HYDRATE and have fun!
1. Mexico – If you’re feeling spicy?
2. Taste of India – Just the thought of Indian food on a hot and sunny day makes me a bit nauseous, but to each his/her own.
3. Ben and Jerry’s –
4. Frenchy’s – Popcorn and such.
5. New England Lemonade – H2O is probably a better source of hydration, but a cup of sugary lemonade doesn’t sound horrible.
6. Duck and Bunny – Cupcakes. Beware of long lines…
7. Pizza Gourmet – I guess BCA was feeling fancy this year and opted out of Domino’s. I welcome this switch, but my stance against Domino’s is highly controversial.

Shakshuka is a great recipe to have on hand for those sans meal plan. It’s cheap, looks impressive, and is relatively easy — especially if you have a well-stocked spice cabinet. Although it’s traditionally served for breakfast, it can certainly function as one of those eggs-for-dinner dishes. The following is a shakshuka recipe adapted from Food52’s “Eggs in Spicy Minted Tomato Sauce.”
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 3 to 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
- One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes (I used 1.5 boxes of crushed San Marzano tomatoes)
- Sriracha or other hot sauce to taste (I used Sriracha and a dallop of Sir Kensington’s ketchup)
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 3-4 large eggs
In a deep-sided skillet or frying pan, heat the butter and olive oil. When the butter melts, add your diced onions. Sauté for about 5 minutes at medium heat. Add your garlic and jalapeño, and sauté for about 1 more minute.
If you’ve ever ventured down College Hill in search of a delicious meal (
definitely possibly with parents in tow, considering the pricing), then you might have found yourself at New Rivers, a cozy American Bistro on Steeple Street. My own parents came this weekend and the three of us enjoyed a delicious meal at the coziest table I’ve ever seen. It was during this meal that I discovered that New Rivers serves oysters for one dollar on Tuesday nights ($1!!!).
For all you oyster lovers out there, head to New Rivers tonight for their weekly Dollar Oyster Night. Tonight’s oysters are Warehams and Beausoleils. And it’s New England, so it’s guaranteed to be great.
If you can’t make it tonight, don’t sweat it! New Rivers has been doing Dollar Oyster Night since 2011 and they show no signs of stopping. Treat yourself Tuesday!
New Rivers is located at 9 Steeple Street and open from 5-10 p.m. Reservations can be made at (401) 751-0350.
