  1. Two Fat Cats Bakery and Gelato Fiasco are teaming up to celebrate National Pie Day with a special menu of ice cream and pies. Join them on Friday & Saturday, January 22 & 23, for all things pies! Stop by Gelato’s Portland Store for pie sundaes made with Two Fat Cats’ pies. Or come by Two Fat Cats Bakery for a slice of pie with a scoop of Gelato Fiasco. The bakery will have a huge selection of pie flavors, including a savory selection and taster packs of original pie flavors.

  2. The Honey Paw collaboration dinner with Anju/The Wallingford. Is in Portland at Honeypaw not in Kittery. I hope, that’s what my tickets say!
