After “Lobstah,” What’s Next?
It’s the time of year when the roads are clogged with out of state visitors. Many of us have entertained friends and family, and there’s always the inevitable first question: As a prepared Mainer, you have a token answer for them, and take them out for a good time. Thing is, they’re around for more than a meal, and Maine has a ton of other great things to sample. What do you say when they ask, “what’s next?”
1. Blueberry Pancakes: Mid summer is blueberry season in Maine, and there’s nothing like Maine blueberries in pancakes.
2. Red Hot Dogs: Wanna a good laugh? Take someone “from away” to a takeout joint. Cue video when the bright red hot dogs show up on their tray. Take it from me, it’s worth it.
3. B&M Beans: While you’re on the red hot dog kick, give ’em a taste of local icon, B&M.
4. Moxie: They’ve probably heard of it, and honestly, are a bit curious. Even if you aren’t a fan yourself, once cracking open 12 oz’s of Maine goodness, they may become one. If not, see #2 on this list.
What is your Maine #2?
