Maine To-Do List 11.6.09

Despite those fluffy white things we saw in the sky yesterday, it's supposed to be a gorgeous weekend — probably one of our last for 2009. So get out, rake those leaves you've been meaning to get to and live it up. Here are a few suggestions for a great weekend in Maine.

Bid with ME
The artist roster for Maine College of Art's 35th annual art auction reads like a Who's Who of our state's contemporary art scene: Will Barnet, Katherine Bradford, Todd Webb and William Wegman (whose "Lean To" appears at right), to name a few, along with recent MECA alumni Nicole Duennebier, Shannon Rankin and Justin Richel. Bid early and often.
Where: ICA at MECA, 522 Congress St.
When: 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7

Eat ME
Fiddlehead restaurant in Bangor just changed its menu and it is so good you'll have a hard time narrowing down your choices: crepes with duck confit, spinach and artichoke Wellington or lobster risotto? Um, yes. Oh, and don't miss the flourless, dairyless chocolate torte. Heavenly.
Where: 84 Hammond St., Bangor, Maine
When: Tuesday-Saturday evenings
Web: n/a

Drink ME
We cannot get enough of Maine Root's Ginger Brew. It's spicy, sweetened with pure organic cane juice and just the thing for a Dark and Stormy. Even though the weather is bright and sunny.
Where: Click here for locations.
When: Anytime

Win ME
Get ready. On Monday, our biggest giveaway ever begins. The winner of our November contest will win a gorgeous, red Angela Adams mailbag in the Lulu pattern.
Where: Here on
When: contest starts Monday and will last two weeks.

Read with ME
We wrote about the Maine Literary Festival earlier this week, and this year's cross-cultural dialogue promises to be compelling.
Where: Camden Opera House
When: 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7

Go Plaid with ME
Mad about plaid? So are audiences of Penobscot Theatre Company's "Forever Plaid," who have made it the highest-grossing show in the company's history. See why this weekend.
Where: Bangor Opera House, 131 Main St., Bangor
When: through November 8
