            After a long trip through the amazing and lengthy menu at Portland’s Mekong Asian Bistro, I looked up at Linda and said, “I’m lost honey. You’ll need to order for us.”

            After looking through all the choices of Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese appetizers and entrees, the only thing I was sure of was the Mai Tai ($6.95). That did turn out to be a very good choice.

            The Cliff House in Cape Neddick is, of course, on a cliff, and every one of their 132 rooms has an amazing ocean view. This is a place that pampers you, from their Cliff Top hot tub to the elegant spa sanctuary.

            Scott, who checked us in, offered lots of great suggestions for the many things to do there. At that point, I knew we should have booked for more than one night!

Restaurant Awards Banquet and Expo were great events!

            It’s become one of our favorite events of the year: the Maine Restaurant Association’s Annual Awards Banquet.

            Imagine wandering the room during the pre-dinner reception, eating amazing appetizers from some of the state’s best restaurants and chefs including the new chef at The Nonantum Resort, a spectacular place on the water in Kennebunkport, and the chefs at the Harraseeket, one of our very favorite inns, restaurants and taverns in Freeport.

            Sunday River’s Grand Summit Hotel is certainly grand, and it was packed with skiers including many families with kids. Guests were there from all over the northeast, and we even saw three vehicles from Nova Scotia. The views are really spectacular here, and we enjoyed riding up and down the mountain to check out all the inns and restaurants.

Noble House Inn is historic, elegant, and welcoming

            This was the fourth time we have stayed at Bridgeton’s Noble House Inn, each time enjoying a different room. Each room has its own personality. The Rugosa room overlooked the large backyard. The Noble room had a four poster bed and was on the second floor. The Pine Forest room looked out at – of course – the forest of pine trees.

Stone Mountain is the best place to listen to music in Maine

City or Town: 
Brownfield

            Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield is the best place to listen to music in Maine. A gorgeously remodeled barn, originally built in 1886, has seating for just 200 guests and offers an intimate opportunity for musicians to mingle with the audience, plus fantastic acoustics.
