    They will also be at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor on Sunday, 1/26 from 10:00 am - noon, then they will be traveling to the Alfond Arena (UMaine's hockey venue) and will be there from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

    Heard that this morning on the radio.  I want to head over there pretty badly but it's supposed to snow Saturday.....what a shocker.  I'm not far from Portland at all though.  A few photos with me and the trophy, a stop at Bull Feeney's for fish and chips and a few Scottish ales across the street at Gritty's is NEVER a bad day!

    Sounds like the guys moving the trophy around got the same plans as you since the trophies are on display for a few hours, leaving them plenty of time for eating and drinking.  I was in Portland with wife and her cousin this summer and did the tourist boat trip, Longfellow etc.  Did get plenty of seafood but only hit an Amato's once and missed all the fun placest that you and 37 mention,King

    Portland is one of the countrys biggest secrets when it comes to food.  There are SO MANY great restaurants in that area....with some of the best chefs around.  The beer is crazy too.  Portland....which really is barely a city is home of some of the best breweries and pubs in New England.  Gritty's, Allagash (world renowned), Shipyard and Sebago are all large micro beweries and make their home in Portland.  It also has one of the best beer bars around called the Great Lost Bear.  They have over 100 beers from all over the country and the world ON TAP....excellent place.  If you're ever back in the area....drop me a note and I can give you a bunch of suggestions based on food and drink preference.  Unfortunately for my health.....I've tried most.....

    @ King...

    Portland area?  I'm in the Bangor area.  My son lives a couple of miles from The Bear and it's one of my favorite stops.

    Any chance you were at the Sable Oaks for the Red Sox gala there last Friday evening?

    Hey S5, No I was not at that....wish I was!!  It's hard to go wrong at the GLB....I got their 'Almighty Cheesus Burger' and their whole buffalo wings the last time I was there and I'm pretty sure I'm still full.....I went last November.  Bangor is a great area.  Love going to concerts on the waterfront followed by maybe a quick hit at Hollywood slots HAHA!!  I actually just chatted with a friend that lives there earlier today and she was raving about a new restaurant called 'Blaze'....same place where the Whig Courier Pub used to be. 

    Truth be told.  I don't go to Portland as much as I used to.  Lived there for a few years then moved to Brunswick....then moved again....now I'm kind of nomad!

    Hmm... you're the second person in less than a week who's said something good about "Blaze".  Gotta try that place, SOON. 

    Bangor is up and coming with more to do all the time but I still frequently wish I were nearer Portland.  Bangor is getting more brew pubs all the time but nothing compares with the ones in Portland. 

    If you ever get to a Sea Dogs game we should hook up there sometime.  1st beer is on me.

    It's a nice, small town atmosphere there.  My g/f and I had tickets to Tim McGraw there a couple of years ago, and we ate at a local restaurant (Sea Dog, for those of you who might now the area) within walking distance.  After we ate we were walking toward the venue and we came upon McGraw and a couple of his bodyguards (?) out going for a run before his show. 

    It's that kind of a place.  Very friendly, relatively small crowds, little to no crime, just a good place to go, have a good time and feel safe.

    Don't bring these things anywhere near Maine. Not until the women start shaving their underarms.

    With a per capita income ranking 32nd in the nation, some rube will try to grab them and they'll end up at some pawn and gun shop in Lewiston. Let the Mainers think they're part of RSN, but don't give them anymore representation in Congress. Go plow some more snow, and eat some chowdah.
