Open Letter to the Dog Owner at Portland’s Emergency Vet at 4 in the Morning

Dear Dog Owner...I haven't been able to stop thinking of you. It was around 4 on the morning of Sunday, July 4th. Yes. A holiday early in the morning and we were both at the Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care on Warren Avenue in Portland. I was there because my dog Casco had a UTI. Not a true emergency, but heading into a holiday I knew she needed medication and couldn't wait. As with people emergency rooms, this was a busy night, and waiting was on the agenda. I knew that going in and was fine with it.

Getting FED in Portland, part 2: Saltwater Grille – you’re definitely paying for the spectacular view

PORTLAND, Maine – So many choices for lunch. Do we eat at one of the famous restaurants, Duck Fat (known for fries), Eventide (known for oysters) or Honey Paw (Asian Tapas) for lunch? While each of these restaurants is great for lunch, reservations are extremely limited and only for parties of four or more. We didn’t feel like waiting 1-2 hours to get in. So if you do plan to eat at one of these trendier spots, you do need to plan ahead.

History Matters: 'Brilliance' glass exhibit at Warner House draws whole picture from shards of the past

Bob Barth is passionate about glass. And not just the fancy schmancy decorative glasswork seen at high-end art museums. He especially loves the sturdy, everyday, utilitarian glass used to make early medicine bottles, wine jugs, decanters, drinking glasses, mirrors, windows, and more. Barth’s exhibition of 300 rare glass items dating from 1700 to 1850 is titled “Brilliance.” Best of all, you’ll find it inside the astonishing 1716 Warner House downtown.
