We love cool things, and WJBQ - Q97.9 reminded us this morning of the upcoming lunar eclipse of the blood moon! So naturally since it won't happen again for a few years, we present to you "Lunar Eclipse!" Lunar Eclipse is an orange, grape, and cherry beverage that is available lit (with clean caffeine) just like the night moon but packed with needed B vitamins and totally sugar-free! Stop in and see us to try it! 📍246 St. John St., Portland, Maine Open until 7pm! #portlandmaine #lunareclipse #moon #bloodmoon #space
