Can Someone Explain Why I Saw This All Over Long Island Maine?

I thought it was one car being a rebel, but it's on many cars on Long Island. First, let's break down Long Island. I don't know if I'd ever been to Long Island before, but there's a bakehouse that sounded delicious. Byers & Sons (LO Bakehouse) is open every day until Labor Day weekend. It was hot outside, and the only way to get there is a 45-minute Casco Bay Ferry ride (or your own boat). I took the ferry. They have yummy food and drinks and of course, baked goods!

National Media Hyped My City’s Bar Scene. Locals Are Losing Out.

I cannot remember a time when the hospitality industry wasn’t central to my life. As a little girl, I bounced around the dining room of my family’s restaurant in the Adirondacks, ferrying plates to the kitchen, collecting empty basket bottles of mediocre Chianti, doing trivial side-work for spare change “tip outs.” I was bewitched by the buzz of a busy service. Years later while working front-of-house in Vermont’s burgeoning natural wine scene, I was informed that if I had any serious aspirations, I needed to move to Portland, Maine, yesterday. With a decade of expertise and a passion for the beverage world that was no longer being sated in small towns, I jumped at the chance to be a part of the port city’s rise to fame.

It's a directory of the local food community. But it's grown since 2007 to have other features like food event listings, Sunday Brunch options, the Under Construction page, pandemic takeout list, the restaurant real estate listings, and most recently the My Kitchen Their Table chef interview column, and a list of restaurants and bars that require proof of vaccination for indoor service.

Going to a water or amusement park with the whole family or group of friends can sometimes feel like juggling several balls. And they’re on fire. You want to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy the day. Things like drinks to stay hydrated, snacks to keep you fueled, sunscreen, towels, strollers, not to mention your wallet.
