Superbowl Sunday in Kennebunkport Maine

It’s hard to believe that Superbowl Sunday is just a week away, and after the “Deflategate” scandal, even the non football fans are surely going to be tuning in from Kennebunkport.  While I am definitely not a regular sports watcher, this broadcast tops my “must-see” list for next weekend, and there’s no better place (aside from the stadium, perhaps) to watch than one of the great pubs around Kennebunkport Maine.  Now since the commercials are my favorite part of the Superbowl, and I… Read More
