Sanford-Portland Beer Summit

To bring a thoughtful end to the riotously entertaining 2nd annual Sanford Beer Week, founder Mike Smith invited four close friends to speak on their experience building a beer culture from scratch and what it has meant for their towns in the state of Maine at the inaugural Sanford-Portland Beer Summit.

Bitters & Brass in Sanford: A Modern Take on the Classic Cocktail Bar

If you were to quickly pass by you might think the building is still the old Fat Rats Lounge, but stop for a moment and peer at the windows and you’ll immediately recognize your mistake as “Bitters & Brass” shines bright in the windows. Step inside and meet owners Julian and Arthur and bar tender Chris, and you’ll see (and taste) there’s no doubt of the businesses newness. Combined these three guys...

Movie Classics Continue at WDPAC – Win Tickets to Singing in the Rain

Experience Sanford Beer Week 2015!

November is upon us, my friends, and this year, that means one thing: Sanford’s First Beer Week!

All Shook Up in Sanford at WDPAC

Ever feel like you were born in the wrong era? It’s always been that way for me, and I have always related much better to music and fashion of decades gone by, especially the 1950s and 60s. Needless to day, it was a total treat to attend All Shook Up at WDPAC, an Elvis inspired full length musical, weaving the legend’s discography into a wacky story based on the plot of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
