I don’t do this often…

 

Matter of fact, I do this never.

But some things have to be shared.

In my original WordPress wanderings, while I was actively searching for a tribe… (Btw,  that’s you bunch  sorry though you may be   of kindred souls.)  I stumbled on this –

Drinking With Chickens

A humorous blog featuring cocktails and chickens.

If there was ever a more perfect combination for me, I’m sure I don’t know what it is.

The author is clever, snarky and surrounded by alcohol and chickens.

What more could a girl want?

Her home is lovely….

And filled with chickens.

They’re literally everywhere.

She wears chickens on her head.

Tell the chickens I said hello.

We had dinner in a treehouse…

No, not that kind.

This kind…

It was magical…

A hidden gem tucked away on the second floor of a nondescript building.

If a friend of mine hadn’t raved about it, I would have driven right by.

I started here with the Starbuck…

 

IMG_1790

 

Which was pretty, pink and potent. Everything a girl wants in a drink.

I had 4. (They were small, don’t judge.)

The home baked rye bread was wonderful.

But my ravioli crisp appetizer? OMG… to die for! With sauteed shallots, garlic, toasted walnuts tossed with spinach, creme fraiche and lemon. Ooh La La!

The husband and my girlfriend had the mussels, sauteed with pancetta, plum tomatoes, garlic, basil, lemon and white wine. They didn’t last long.

The entree menu was small, but the husband chose the Marsala pear chicken…

While I had the special….sea scallops baked in a phylo bowl with some sort of heavenly citrus sauce. Light, flaky and utterly and fabulous.

Naturally we had dessert.

Lavender creme brulee for our friend, chocolate stout cake for me.

We rolled out of there with full bellies and empty wallets.

Smiling, and already anticipating our next visit.

Life is good.

 

 

Ho! Ho! Holy Hell, It’s Elvis!

 

Yes, my friends.

Elvis is alive and well and living in Mid Coast Maine.

He’s also doing a bit of a comb over, but give the guy a break…. he still rocks the sequined jumpsuit.

We ran into Elvis in downtown Bath, where they do an old fashioned Christmas celebration every year.

Just follow the city hall beacon….

 

IMG_1758

 

And you’ll find ice sculptures….

 

IMG_1766

 

Live music in art galleries…

(Can we talk about that statue? Is she carrying laundry, or dead bodies? Either way I don’t want her in my living room.)

 

IMG_1767

 

Stores were open late selling jewelry made from crushed lobster shells…

 

IMG_1768

 

As well as mussel shells.

(It’s Maine. Go with it…)

 

IMG_1760

 

The streets were brightly lit…

 

IMG_1769

 

And I intended to get that way as well.

Three Beekeepers?

Don’t mind if I do….

Sadly, the food was awful at the Bath Brewing Company.

 

IMG_1770

 

But we did have a senior citizen caroling flash mob…

So the evening wasn’t a total loss.

If only I had asked them where they bought their hats.
