Weekend Round Up

Check out all the awesome things that are happening in downtown Portland!

Thursday: Entreverge Award Party. Port City Music Hall. 5:30 PM. $7.

This is the first Entreverge Award party but hopefully not the last. Five winners will be chosen that exemplify innovation in the Maine business community. There will be a cash bar and appetizers so make sure you eat with your drinks. Of course there will be live music by Jason Spooner and Adam and the Waxmen.

Friday: Take Your Dog to Work Day. Tommy’s Park. 11:30 AM. Free.

Portland has to be one of the world’s most dog friendly city so this day is no surprise. The surprise is how much fun it is! There is nothing like spending a nice Friday outside with your four-legged pal. There will be a parade to Tommy’s Park and plenty of activities for dogs and people.

  1. I visited Portland in 1998. I loved it! What a beautiful, enlightened city. I recall many things about Portland but one really stuck in my mind. The public trash recepticles had a very catchy phrase on them. I was tring to remember the phrase. Can you help?
    thanks for much for a beautiful place to visit.
