Blasts from the Past
Restaurants come and restaurants go, but these time-tested diners, lodges, lobster shacks, and more only get better with age.
North by East
The high-tech equipment that aids LifeFlight of Maine, the end of the Maine Sea Goddess’s reign, and an Aroostook-reared poet with home on the brain. Plus, in Maine Dispatches, L.L.Bean goes dark on social.
Food and Drink
Gifford’s Ice Cream recovers from a factory fire, Trudy Bird’s Ølbar brings Scandinavia to North Yarmouth, and Veazie’s Korean Dad hosts a buffet of global pop-ups.
Good Things from Maine
A unique South Porland welding school blazes a path for those underrepresented in the trades. Also, a roundup of Maine-made skin-care and a visit with the volunteer knitters of the Loose Ends Project.
Orono gardeners go big on hostas, determined cottagers go off-grid in Harpswell, and a Brunswick inn launches an innkeeper essay contest.
