You would think after the obscene amount of Boone’s Farm wine and malt beverages I have consumed, that I would have also tried out its namesake, Boone’s Fish House & Oyster Room. You would think incorrectly, but not anymore! Our latest Friday Lunch excursion was my first experience to this Old Port fixture, and it
Recent newcomer BRGR Bar on Brown Street in Portland had been on our radar since it first opened, and in May we finally got to sample its wares. What we expected was gourmet burgers, and we were not disappointed. What took us by surprise, however, was the plethora of delectable apps.
Our third lunch adventure of 2017 was a trip to Terlingua, a newer place that has popped up on Washington Ave. during that area’s continued re-development/gentrification. Despite the fancy name and rustic sign, however, we discovered it to be a simple, no-nonsense spot with Southwestern and Mexican-inspired BBQ selections.

Rivalries was our best bet for finding some coveted outdoor seating for the triple crown Friday Lunch. It was a lunch of new beginnings (I hope they keep me!), new beginnings in Rhode Island (Erich will be missed), and birthdays (Scott’s 21st birthday, I assume). They were the only game in town that didn’t scoff at a very large seating request and gave us decent odds for utilizing their spacious patio area.
