I'm headed out....for "sure to be a good time" Night After Christmas Party located at The Frontier Cafe. This fanstasict place in Brunwick on the Androscoggin River. Set in a cool, old, 4 story brick mill, the ceilings must reach 20' high. Windows overlook the river and they offer some fantastic food ~ "Fresh Ingredients, World Flavors and Seasonal Specialties". Tonight they are having Blues & Bluegrass music to continue the Holiday spirit.
Ft. Andross is the buidling that the Saturday Winter Market where I sell my soaps (Satrudays 9-12:30) is held. Here is a fantastic write up about the history of Ft. Andross:
For over 300 years, Fort Andross has influenced life along the banks of the Androscoggin River. It has been a trading post for fur trappers, a pre-Revolutionary fort and a bustling textile mill. Fort Andross continues to evolve as life around it changes and today serves as a vibrant hub for professionals, non-profits, artists, craftspeople and a growing number of “creative economy” businesses. The Fort is conveniently located at the base of downtown Brunswick’s Maine Street, within walking distance to Topsham and Bowdoin College and in the heart of the midcoast region. The combination of location, a diverse local and professional community, historic character and spectacular river views made Fort Andross the ideal site to build Frontier’s meeting place.
