The Weekend Guide for Dec 15th – 17th, 2017

Happy Hanukkah! Just like the candles on your menorahs, the Old Port will be getting lit.


Foulmouthed Brewing is releasing a barrel-aged version of their Blue Balls Belgian Style Dark Strong Ale! You’ve gotta get your hands on this oaky, boozy, fruity, and smoky ale that’s made and aged on Maine blueberries. Available at the brewery from 3-9pm!

Circus Maine is hosting their 2nd Annual Solstice Circus cabaret show all weekend (but Sunday is already sold out, so act fast)! Beginning tonight at 7 pm, catch this fast-paced and electrifying show incorporating aerials, hoop diving, handstands, trampolines, juggling, human pyramids, and feats of strength to ring in the Winter Solstice!

The Fogcutters Super Fantastic Christmas Extravaganza begins at 8 at the State Theatre for an evening of holiday music, fun, and cheer with special guests.

Didn’t you know that Irish Whiskey and Country Music go hand in hand? Stop by RiRa tonight at 9 for both as Barefoot Fossie and the Coop play modern country and classic favorite boot stomping dance tunes.


Keep the gifts unique this holiday season and visit the Rosemont Artists’ Guild Annual Holiday Show from 10 am to 4 pm at the Breakwater School! Stock up for everyone on your list between the handcrafted pottery, stained glass, textiles, paintings, jewelry, and so much more!

If you find yourself shopping around the Old Port, stop by The Thirsty Pig from 2-5 pm for A Charlie Brown Christmas with holiday tunes by An Overnight Low, hot chocolate, and as always, good local food and beer!

If you didn’t get a chance to grab a ticket onboard the now sold out Casco Bay Lines (or have your own boat lined up) for the Christmas Boat Parade of Lights, not to worry! Some favorite spots to watch the parade for the land-lovers on the waterfront are the Eastern Prom, Maine State Pier, DiMillo’s, and Bug Light Park! Parade starts at 4:45 pm.

The Brewhouse Movie Series begins at Allagash Brewing Company with a classic, The Muppet Christmas Carol! Tickets are just $10 and include popcorn and cookies along with your seat, and of course, beers will be available for purchase!


Fork Food Lab members have been busy baking and chef-ing it up for the Fork Holiday Pop-Up! Stop by between 1-4 to taste their products or grab a gift basket!

This week’s installment of Four Weeks of Giving with Bissell Brothers Brewing Company is dedicated to the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland! Bring an item to put under their tree, and definitely enjoy a few beers, because they’re matching 100% of Sunday’s taproom sales to donate to the ARLGP!

Babies + beer= holiday cheer. Bring Your Own Baby to the Holiday Baby Ball at Little Tap House! Family photo booth, delicious Maine beer, and fun socializing included from 3:30-5:30 pm.

Guardians of the Galaxy fans unite at Arcadia National Bar as they celebrate the launch of their brand new Guardians of the Galaxy pinball machine! For $5 entry, join the 3-strike group knockout tournament from 4-8 pm, win prizes, and improve your World Pinball Ranking![/fusion_text]
