Catch a showing of the play Be Here Now by Deborah Zoe Laufer, put on by our nonprofit partner @ThePublicTheater from June 17–19 and 23–26! An intriguing comedy about happiness, Be Here Now follows the story of a nihilistic professor who develops a medical condition with a side effect that turns her into a happy, hopeful believer in love. But what if curing her condition will return her to misery? This wise and quirky comedy asks, is happiness a choice or a pre-existing condition? Tickets are $25 for adults (or $22 per person for groups of 10 or more); $20 for students (ages 19 and up with ID); and $10 for ages 4 to 18. A video-on-demand ticket option will be available from June 21–26, costing $25 for a single ticket (one person viewing on one device) or $50 for a household ticket (two or more people viewing on one device). Get your tickets today! Don’t forget to check out their Annual Silent Auction, both online and at the show.

Five Stylish Inns to Book for Your Next Maine Getaway - The Maine Mag

Designer Chelsea Mortenson of Brass Tacks Studio in Chicago expresses awe at the idea of “a winter surfing culture, in Maine of all places.” And yet, this offbeat hobby gave Mortenson plenty of inspiration when it came to outfitting the guest rooms and bungalows at York Beach Surf Club, a new resort located near Long Sands Beach. Click the link below to check out our roundup of design-forward lodging options around Maine!

While plenty of big-name hotels offer serviceable rooms, sometimes you’re looking for more than clean sheets and a hot shower. Sometimes, you want a travel experience—to be surprised and seduced by your home-away. Time off is precious and should be

Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes with Maple Syrup - The Maine Mag

As fresh maple syrup hits store shelves, we’ve got pancakes on the brain. This recipe using buckwheat and wild Maine blueberries makes the quintessential Maine pancake you’ve been craving for your weekend mornings! Click the link below for the recipe excerpted from Modern Country Cooking by Annemarie Ahearn.

The motivating factor for this recipe was a big box of wild Maine blueberries from the previous year’s harvest that needed eating. But there were other incentives. “Ployes” are a dish native to Maine and New Brunswick. They are similar

Finding Magic in the Mundane - The Maine Mag

Writer Brandon Dudley and his wife faced all the same challenges families with young children dealt with during the pandemic, trudging through remote school and other pandemic restrictions while safely venturing out to the backyard and woods to keep their sons engaged and stimulated. However, Dudley had an ace up his sleeve: magic! It started with one trick, and his boys were hooked. Before long, father and sons were practicing magic and watching magic shows over Zoom. Click the link below to read how a sleight of hand brought delight and wonder during a challenging time.

I only know one magic trick. It’s called the Color-Changing Aces, which I learned when I was eight years old and was obsessed with becoming a magician. It’s a simple trick, using a very basic sleight of hand—the double lift—and

“As a photographer and a mom of two young boys, I’m always on the lookout for new family adventures. When I stumbled across an image of Bald Head Cliff, I was stunned to learn this hidden gem is just down the road from us. It’s hard to put the beauty of the rock formation into words; the sheer size of the cliff leaves you in complete awe as you walk down the steps. For my adventurous boys, it’s even more incredible to climb and explore. It was the perfect Maine spring outing—one for the memory books.” Photo and words by @tiffanymizzellphotography.

Lucky Pigeon Brewing Company in Biddeford is Maine’s first dedicated gluten-free brewery, and only the second in New England. Their brewing process utilizes oats, rice, millet, and buckwheat to ensure Lucky Pigeon beer is 100-percent gluten free. “Brewing isn’t easy, and making a great beer is hard,” says head brewer Scott Nebel, “but when I came here, brewing with barley suddenly seemed easy.” Nebel wants to continue to push the bounds of gluten-free beer in Lucky Pigeon’s oeuvre, and is currently working on an American stout and a Belgian ale.

Today we’re remembering illustrator, painter, and children’s book author Ashley Bryan, who used his art to bring attention to the African American experience. In our 2017 profile on the artist, Bryan told us about growing up in the Great Depression, fighting in WWII, and overcoming obstacles to become an internationally acclaimed professor and children’s book author. Originally from Harlem, Bryan considered Little Cranberry Island home for much of his life and established himself as a pillar of the community. Bryan died Friday at age 98.
