  1. Just wanted to note that this week on Wednesday the 18th we will be holding our first Beer Tasting. It will be at RSVP starting at 4:00PM.

  2. This coming Sunday, Hugo’s and Share Our Strength is hosting the first of many collaborative dinners to support efforts to eliminate childhood hunger in Maine.

    $250 a head includes a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, live auction and multi-course dinner prepared by Chef Rob Evans of Hugo’s and Chef Sam Hayward of Fore Street.

    Two great chefs for a great cause! Reservations are required and can be made by calling Arlin at 207-774-0578.
