To-Do List

To hell with Friday. Thank God it's Saturday. Now that the weekend is finally here (does anyone else feel like this work week had 10 days in it?), get your Maine on.

Drag ME
You need to go to the Lewistunning Dragapalooza, because, really, who doesn't love a good drag show? Seriously? And it's even better when it benefits youth in Maine.
When: 7 p.m. Saturday, May 9
Where: Schaeffer Theater, Bates College, Lewiston

Plant ME
Yes, our heart beats for pulmonaria. And we're wild about wildflowers. But native plants are where it's at, as Doug Tallamy will discuss at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.
When: 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 9
Where: Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Boothbay.

Eat ME
Last Friday, the Maven hung out with her best friend and split a platter of vegetarian Eritrean food at Asmara in Portland. We can't think of a better way to spend a spring evening. Order it spicy and try the honey wine.
When: Whenever
Where: Asmara, 51 Oak St., Portland.
Web: N/A

Drink ME
In honor of Saturday's University of Maine graduates, let's fill our steins to dear old Maine with a pint of Geary's Summer Ale. The fact that the label is designed by a Maine College of Art student is worthy of a toast as well.
When: Whenever
Where: Your living room or a watering hole near you

Shop ME
Mother's Day is Sunday and a gift certificate to Rheal Waterfront Day Spa in Rockland, Maine's premier sustainable spa, is the ultimate gift.
When: ASAP
Where: Rheal Day Spa, 453 Main St., Rockland, 207.594.5077
