The Weekend Guide for Feb 2nd – 4th, 2018

It’s Super Bowl Weekend and the Old Port is bringing their A-game.


First Friday Art Walk, February edition is here! The walk begins at 5 pm at a plethora of different venues, each offering their own unique programming, show, products, foods, drinks, and more!

…Speaking of the Art Walk, we’ll be making our way to Vena’s Fizz House, where Jessica Davis, illustrator of comics and short animations will be displaying her work, while we enjoy some high-quality cocktails and mocktails.

Start your weekend out right by heading over to Highroller Lobster Co. for the release of a brand new beer, How’s Yer Capacity, by Mast Landing, Hoof Hearted, Highroller and the infamous John Squadrito (the man on the can)… Enjoy it with a lobster grilled cheese and you’re as good as golden.

Get your bowl, beer, bomb food, and beats on at Bayside Bowl! Akela Moon & the Clara Junken Trio are collaborating to bring you musical greatness starting at 8 pm!


All aboard the struggle bus! The Struggle Bus Competition, being held at EVO Rock + Fitness is a bouldering competition for climbers of all experience levels! Come to compete, or just watch and enjoy the beer, food, and community.

Get your night started in a cozy way with Game Night at Higher Grounds! Enjoy hot chocolate, coffee, or a spot of kombucha while you play some old favorite board games. They’ll provide the games, but feel free to BYO!

Another day, another beer release! This time at Oxbow! Join them as they release their newest farmhouse ale, a 6% European-hopped dark farmhouse ale brewed with oats and midnight wheat called Blacklight (a 90s blacklight dance party may or may not be happening to stay on theme).

Warm up with some Winter Reggae in honor of Bob Marley’s birthday (February 6)! Feel the Caribbean vibes with Mighty Mystic & The Hard Roots Movement, featuring Gorilla Finger Dub Band and DJ Ice, starting at 9 pm at Aura.


Let’s be real here, the most important event on Sunday is the Puppy Bowl! And the best part about it is, there will be a local puppy from the ARLGP competing! Cheer on Juniper & Team Ruff at a Puppy Bowl Viewing Party at the Little Tap House, where they’re donating all sales of Allagash White to the ARLGP!

Join Fore Play for a Red Bull Pre-Game Super Bowl Party! Featuring $1 Redbull & vodkas from 4-5, $2.75 Bud Lights from 5-6, $5 Bloody Marys and Mimosas all day long, and the usual Sunday football buffet!

Duckfat will be in the house at Oxbow Blending & Bottling for Oxbowl! Serving up some iconic tailgating grub (hello, ribs, wings, poutine, and more!) while you watch the Patriots in the big game, and all is right in the world.

It’s the 2nd Annual Tom Brady Bunch Championship Game Celebration, happening at Empire Live Music & Events! They’re displaying the big game on their big projector and sound system, with a full bar, and a hot buffet courtesy of Empire Chinese Kitchen! Limited tickets available, so don’t wait to buy yours!
