Maine To-Do List: 1.15.10

Editor's note: Stay tuned for our Annie|Catherine giveaway, our biggest giveaway yet. The contest kicks off Monday morning and the tote — a $180 value — is gorgeous and huge. You won't want to miss it.

The temperatures are supposed to warm up this weekend and by the look of it, so is Maine's social scene. There's so much to do, we had a hard time narrowing it down. So put an end to cabin fever and get out.

Eat ME
We're headed to sunny L/A this weekend, and we're dreaming of chef Justin Oliver's "Feed Me Justin" tasting menu. If you haven't eaten here yet, it's a must if you're in Lewiston.
When: Saturday night's all right.
Where: 49 Lisbon St., Lewiston

Drink ME
Since tea is about all The Maven is drinking these days, we're intrigued by the Maine Kombucha Company's effervescent, probiotic brew. It's infused with cranberry, blueberry, rose hip, elderberry and Hawthorne berry, so it's pretty much an antioxidant powerhouse.
When: Whenever
Where: It's a little hard to find, but you can sign up on the Web site to find out.

Picture ME
If it seems like your top-of-the-line camera becomes outdated as soon as you figure out how to use it, you're right. And it's always been this way. "Going Forward, Looking Back: Practicing Historic Photographic Processes in the 21st Century" shows the ways technology has shaped photography — and our view of the world — over time.
Where: University of New England gallery, 716 Stevens Ave., Portland
When: through Jan. 31

Read ME
The February issue of Martha Stewart Living includes a wonderful feature about Kate and Steve Shaffer of Black Dinah Chocolatiers, a Maven favorite located on Isle Au Haut. Read it and drool.
Where: Newsstands
When: Now

Buy ME
We need to reupholster some Louis XVI chairs. Marden's just got in a huge shipment of fabric in all of its stores. Sounds like a match made in heaven.
Where: from Fort Kent to Sanford
When: ASAP

Talk Nerdy to ME
Get your geek on — and we mean this in a good way — at SnowCon, central and northern Maine's annual (non-video) gaming convention. In the interest of full disclosure, The Maven's BFF heads up the event, but we'd write about it anyway, because it's just quirky enough.
Where: Black Bear Inn, Orono
When: Jan. 16-17
Web: SnowCon
