I think the nightclub we went to was called Fish Club. It was a decent club, quite busy, plenty of underagers I'd say (myself included at the time)! There was an excellent buzz around the area in general, with plenty of parties. We crashed in Shane's house for the night and the following morning we got up and headed into downtown Providence, hoping to find a bar showing a Munster rugby match that was on.
We were very hungover from the night before, but managed to have a bite to eat in the Cheesecake Factory in Providence Mall. The mall was cool, even bigger than Cambridgeside Galleria which we thought was gigantic! It has all the stores you'd expect a megasized American mall to have, from the Abercrombie, Hollister and American Eagle, to Discovery Channel, Apple, etc. etc. etc. We found some amusing Fidelity advertisements, with random things about IRA on them. Of course to Americans they would have read IRA as Individual Retirement Account, but us Irish would read it as Irish Republican Army. The IRA have a huge involvement in the history of conflict in Northern Ireland, and when we see signs like "Cure for the common IRA" and "Show your IRA some TLC" it is very funny! :)
