Fun weekend! Saturday was the annual Picnic Music and Arts Festival. This indie craft fair is held every summer (and winter I believe) in Portland and is something Ross and I really look forward to. I was tempted to pick out everything I saw, but I managed to limit myself to two new pieces of art for the apartment and some vintage earrings.
While we listened to some local bands play, we enjoyed lunch from Skinny Cart BBQ, a newish lunch cart in town. We got the beef brisket sandwiche with slaw topping. Oh my, yummy. For $6 it was a huge portion with tons of delicious smoked beef. Though I’m not a BBQ aficionado, I have to say the smoke ring was quite impressive.
Here’s our haul! Artist Colleen Kinsella does really cool work that we’re big fans of. We already have one of her pieces – I just love the colors and themes she uses.
Later that evening we went to Falmouth Sea Grill to use a gift certificate we’ve been saving. Though it isn’t our typical crowd, we had a delicious dinner overlooking the harbor. I ordered my first lobster roll of the year. I can’t believe I hadn’t had one yet, but now that I live in Maine I don’t always think to order one. Well, I’m glad I did because it was delicious – exactly how I like it. Very little mayo, huge chunks of lobster, light on the seasoning (just salt and pepper I believe). Excellent. A true Mainer’s lobster roll.
