It might be chilly out there but we’re fighting it and bringing the Springtime vibes to Portland with good food, great beer releases, and lots of fun starting with the First Friday Art Walk!


On your way through the First Friday Art Walk, stop at Port City Music Hall to support many Maine based artists, makers, and musicians from 5-9 pm for their First Friday Happy Hour! This month’s featured artists are Pinfolk Studios, ATK Woodworks, Caitlin Puchalski, and more!

Join Mast Landing Brewing Company and Barreled Souls Brewing Company at the Great Lost Bear as they release both of their Paper Plates collaboration beers, Strawberry Shortcake Session IPA and Strawberry Tallcake IPA! Yum.

Solid Spring cocktails will be poured and the Bruce Couillard Trio featuring John Hoekstra keys and Jim Lyden upright bass at Maine craft distilling starting at 6 pm!

Bayside Bowl is hosting When Particles Collide with Body Electric from 8:30-11:30 pm! Delight your ears with some alt rock, your taste buds with great food and drinks, and maybe even partake in a bowl sesh at this all-ages-friendly, FREE event!
