Snaps on the Haps – October  2014

Hi friends,

Yes, this edition of the “Snaps On The Haps” is a little late, but packed full of goodness. And, while October is cooling down- Portland is heating up. Yes, I said that.

The Haps:

Today 10-7 through Saturday at the Urban Farm Fermentory there is a Horny Toad clothing sale!

Oct. 11 10-3 $8/person. Fall Festival at Wolfe’s Neck Farm. Check it out animals, food and music with fun kid activities.

….Also that evening at Blue starting at 7:30 Irish Music featuring Liz and Dan

Oct. 16 The Makers Meal Tickets are on sale and I’ve heard there are only a few left. Art from Running With Scissors artist, many local beer pairings with food from Bread and Butter Catering-if you haven’t had their food it’s a serious treat.

Oct. 17 Children’s Museum and Theater kicks off Alice in Wonderland! Also…Check out Portland Ballet for times and shows for Jack The Ripper. Who wants to go with me? Seriously, Jon’s more petrified of men in tights than Jack The Ripper but I’d love to see it.

Oct. 19 6-over. 2nd Annual Lantern Walk! Come down to Deering Oaks Park- by the Duck Pond- with your lantern. (They ask that you illuminate your lanterns with a battery powered candles, headlamps, or cellphones set to flashlight mode, as the city would like us to avoid using flames…)

Oct. 22 6-9. Portland Buy Local Indie Biz Awards. 2 Degrees is nominated along with many other awesome local organizations. Space Gallery on Congress St. It’s always a fun night with an auction at the end.

Starting Oct. 23… Ready for some Spooktacular fun? At Eastern Cemetery actors recreate the lives of famous Portlander’s buried there. More info here.

Fun Just sign up and receive a treat in your inbox each day. Want to discover a new restaurant or rekindle a food flame or be in the know of what’s on the foodie horizon? It’s my new favorite daily dose of goodness.

RealtyI am now an Associate Broker. What does that mean?! I have considerable more knowledge- after taking an intense 5 week course- about Federal and Maine laws, negotiating and good business practice.

Future Snaps: Keep inviting me to your events on Facebook or sharing them with me. And most importantly keep in touch. Always up for coffee/lunch/adult beverage with any one of you. Please feel free to share with anyone that might find these helpful. I have a lot of fun finding this info and I’d love to get more people at some of this great and sometime missed fun.
