Wendy's note: I was so happy to find a specific scent here that I've been trying to find for years. It's a white musk that I LOVE as a perfume. We should have taken a photo inside because there are thousands of little goodies on every shelf. A guy could spend days here and not take it all in.
Wendy's note: "or something like that"...sigh. Red's is flippin' famous! During the summer the line to get one of these rolls can literally be an hour long, and people do it because there is more than a whole lobster in every roll. Note also the *perfectly* toasted bun in the photo, along with the whole chunks of tail. SO good! (It comes with mayo or melted butter on the side, and I smeared a little mayo on one side of the roll before we took the picture.)
In the evening we went to the coolest sports bar in Maine. It’s called “The Depot” and it’s in Gardiner. We met a few of Wendy’s friends, Heather, Pat, and Eddie. Heather and her husband are huge Pats fans, so we chatted about that for a long, long time. The bar was packed because the Bruins were playing (they lost).
Wendy's note: The Depot is very well know in the area as being a friendly bar where most everyone knows everyone. My friends tell me it's always very safe - though both times we've been there over the past two years a woman picked a fight with a guy and things got ugly and resulted in someone being asked to leave. Heather, my best friend from across the street growing up here in Farmingdale, swears it has only ever happened those two times though, haha. I certainly noticed that everyone who walked in said hello to the people I was with and just about everyone else as well. Does that mean everyone is friend or everyone here spends way too much time at the bar? lol I so enjoyed catching up with them, though. Great people here in Maine!
