We continue to be thrilled with how many of you have supported us through this difficult time. Whether it be through a donation to our Annual Appeal, participating in our virtual programming, or even just attending one of our driving events with a positive attitude. We salute YOU! We're kicking off our Lawn Events in June and extending them into the fall. Details regarding events will be rapidly changing as the season progresses and we encourage you to join our mailing list for the latest updates. In the last year, we've learned to pivot (and pivot) and the schedule will still look different (at least at first) but we are hoping that we can return to our regularly scheduled programming of Cars & Coffee and Lawn Events in the late summer. Other events, including driving tours and educational programs will also be added to our calendar.

PORTLAND, MAI NE: WEEKENDEDI TI ON ANNE MARI E GOGUEN

After 13 months of take out, dining outside, and cooking at home, boy does it feel good to venture back into restaurants again! And venturing in and out of restaurants and bars is what we did on a weekend completely dedicated to food and drink in the amazing food and beer city of Portland, Maine.

LUNCH The drive up north to Portland is not spectacular. Route 128 to 1-95 is a road often traveled for us. To extend our drive and see a new site we looked on Google Maps and chose a random island north of the city to drive to for lunch: Bailey Island. Located about a half an hour south of Brunswick down Route 24 is the coastal town of Harpswell on Casco Bay. The town comprises the mainland and hundreds of islands. Sebascodegan Island, Orr's Island, and Bailey Island are the largest, with bridges connecting the three and Bailey Island at the tip. The scenic drive on Route 24 was well worth it on windy and surprisingly hilly roads. They delivered scenic coastal views of the rocky Maine shoreline, with its blue -green water and surrounded by evergreens. The roads were so quiet in the off-season that at times the area was reminiscent of Acadia National Park. On Bailey Island, we lunched at Cook's Lobster & Ale House, a 1955 landmark that began as a take-out stand selling lobsters too small to ship out of state. The restaurant has grown since then to a staple of the area. Thousands of lobster traps were stacked outside of the restaurant on the pier, waiting for the season to begin. A sure sign of a good place to get lobster! As it was off-season, we chose a fried haddock sandwich, fish and chips, and some cold, local beers from Bissel Brothers (Portland) and Atlantic Brewing (Bar Harbor). This place is definitely worth checking out in the summer! DRINKS After the drive back south to Portland, we made it to Novare Res, a beer bar located right in the heart of downtown that is consistently named one of the best beer bars in the country. My flance, Jacob, is a self-proclaimed "beer snob." He's not your everyday beer snob either, but rather a die-hard who will trade, ship, collect, and travel for beer. In the same way many people collect wines and age them in their celler, he collects bottles of beer and ages them. Novare Res is like a candy store to him, specializing in Belgian-inspired beers and local Maine favorites. Their covid protocol was one of the best I've experienced. We sat in a side room with our own little nook, complete with plastic barriers to separate us from other guests. The nook had an old barrel where all of our drinks were delivered and cleared, making for a completely contactless experience. Of note, we ordered a Orie Fonteinen Oude Geuze from Belgium, served in an authentic Iambic basket, a De Cam Kriek Lambiek, Iambic from a box, and a Goodflre Pilsner which is local to Portland. All of which were served in authentic glassware, which Jacob notes is a "big deal." We ordered a small cheese plate as an accompaniment to our drinks. If you like beer, Novare Res is the place to go in Portland. Their menu offers something for everyone, with everything from Iambics to boozy hot chocolate and a whole lot in between. Make a point to stop in here on your next visit to Portland. You won't be disappointed. 1: LUNCH FROM COOK'S LOBSTER&ALE HOUSE ON BAILEY ISLAND. 2: CHEESE PLATE FROM NOVARE RES IN PORTLAND, ME 3: HI JACOB!

is saturated with fantastic restaurants for dinner. On the

recommendation of a former Portlander we had our sights set on Duckfat, a local favorite creating great quality comfort food made with local ingredients. When we arrived they had already stopped taking reservations for the evening, but were still offering takeout and had plenty of open-air seating available. After all the wonderful things we'd heard about the restaurant, we chose to order takeout and grab a table. We ordered the poutine. It featured belgian fries topped with locally sourced cheese curd, duck gravy, and fresh chives. We added a sunny-side up local farm egg for good measure. We also went for the Duckfat banh mi with duck confit, pâté , picked vegetables, cilantro, and mint, and washed it all down with a delicious housemade cookies and cream milkshake. Duckfat has definitely gotten something really right with their poutine. Fried in-you guessed it-duck fat, the frites were reminiscent of a typical Belgian or European style fry with their rich yet delicate flavor. Even more impressive was the correct proportions on the dish. Too often, this signature French-Canadian dish has curds that are too large and overwhelming, but not at Duckfat. In another excellent-yet-surprising combination of cuisines, the banh mi, a vietnamese sandwich, was fresh, light, and savory, and the duck confit melted in your mouth. I suspect this will not be our last time visiting Duckfat. If you're looking for a casual, modern, and upscale take on takeaway comfort food, it will be worth your while to check out this locally loved, family-owned hot spot in downtown. BREAKFAST For breakfast, we grabbed a quick bite of pastries from Standard Baking Co. This family owned business has fed downtown Portland well since 1995. They specialize in handcrafted artisanal baked goods made with natural ingredients and baked daily in their 12-ton, stone deck oven. You know a place is good when there is a constant queue waiting to order outside. Because it was a weekend, we were able to try some of their weekend-only pastries, like an almond croissant and a cinnamon roll. They both had the perfect amount of luxury, sweetness, and butter. Perfect examples of baking at its finest! LUNCH AND DRINKS Our final stop of the weekend was to a lesser-known brewery, Barreled Souls, based out of Saco, about 15 minutes from downtown Portland. They specialize in bourbon barrel-aged stouts, a niche market that is well-regarded and highly sought after by those in the know within the beer community. They had a food truck there for the day, so we ended our weekend of decadence with fresh empanadas and fried plantains. A delicious final treat.

UPSHIFT

Portland has really blossomed into a booming food city in the recent years. Next time you're in the area, eat beyond the obligatory lobster-roll, wander off the beaten path and follow the locals. Find a I ine or a long wait and you will find great food. Trust me, it will be worth it.
