It's not often you see a traditional Buddhist ceremony in downtown Niantic but for the opening of at 239 Main Street, three Thai monks came down from a temple in Boston to perform a blessing that was as authentic as the Thai cuisine that the restaurant offers.
"It's a tradition in my country. We feed the monks, we feed all the guests, we never let you be hungry," said Spice Club owner "Tai" Au.
