To-Do List

Have you been working for the weekend? It's finally here. And so is Maine Maven's inaugural to-do list, highlighting the best of ME for May 2 and 3. Enjoy!

Play ME
Get a better vision of the Queen City through La Great Race, a scavenger hunt through Bangor in which teams photograph themselves in front of landmarks and other finds.
When: starts at 9:30 a.m. today.
Where: University of Maine Museum of Art, 40 Harlow St., Bangor.

Buy ME
The must-have item in Maine this spring? Tickets to the Wilco show on the Maine State Pier.
When: July 17
Where: Maine State Pier

Eat ME
If we could eat anywhere in Maine this weekend, we'd choose Francine Bistro in Camden, a tiny jewel of a restaurant where chef Brian Hill — amazing — changes the menu daily. Try the Steak Frites and anything involving fish.
When: call 207.230.0083 for reservations.
Where: 55 Chestnut St., Camden

Drink ME
Days like these call for the white sangria at Local 188 in Portland (pictured).
When: anytime
Where: 685 Congress St., Portland

Shop ME
Need a knockout Mother's Day gift? Try Ingrid's German Shop in Bangor, a treasure box of a boutique packed full with Venetian glass, delightful foods and a wonderful selection of imports you won't find anywhere else in Maine. On Saturdays, vendors peddle their wares at the indoor market at the adjoining Sunnyside Greenhouse.
When: Saturdays are best
Where: 117 Buck St., Bangor

you need to work on your links, dear. The last three do not take one to the proper page... though when I copied and pasted, I found the sites.

... maybe...

Does Ingrid REALLY have a site with just one page, no real content? If so, I need to visit her! < g >

Hi, Jj,
Problem solved — not sure how that happened! And yes, that is the site.
Thanks for letting me know about the bad links!

You ever go to Stella's in Castine? I'd say that is the best place to eat dinner in Maine. Ocean? Check. Live Jazz? Check. Awesome food (including potato chips super thin sliced off the deli)? Super check. Plus oriental rugs, great lighting and great people.

No, but one of my best friends lives in Castine, so I'll add Stella's to my list. Thanks!
