FLO'S CLAM SHACK

It's back-to-campus time. You've got shopping lists, book lists, syllabi, class rosters, and Facebook. Who would possibly think you could handle more lists? We would, that's who. We at the Providence Phoenix set a high standard for our readers' performance, and that involves giving you more information than you can possibly handle. Kinda like college.

READYour phone needs these lists: Emergency contacts for new-in-town students
But this stuff, we swear, is info you won't stare at blankly and wonder whether you'll ever use it in your adult life. Our lists you can walk right out the door and use right now, no questions asked, no studying required. Some of these lists, we dare say, you might actually memorize. Not because we said so, but because you'll realize how important they are. (Feel free to use assistive technology — we even included a list of useful numbers to put in your phone's contact list.)

The basic point is: If you want to know it, it's on one of our lists. If it's not here, you don't need to know. Tell that to your profs at exam time.

FOOD + DRINK

5 PLACES TO GET YOUR FIRST TASTE OF RHODE ISLAND CLAM CHOWDUH

There are actually three varieties of clam chowder: the red stuff dubbed "Manhattan" style, white "New England," and Rhode Island "clear" chowduh. The ingredients? Potatoes, chopped clams, and a briny stock — no tomato or cream enhancement needed. Kinda like the broth left over from a bowl of steamers. What are steamers, you ask? Oh, right. Never mind . . . .
