Cross Insurance Center introduces the Penobscot Poundah

(0 votes)

BANGOR - After asking for the public's help to name the newest menu item at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, the votes have finally been tallied and the winner is the Penobscot Poundah. This half-pound Angus burger topped with bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and poutine made its debut during the Hunter Hayes concert last week. And the winning name came from one of the city's own residents: Jack Keenan of Bangor.

"The size of the burger is huge and everyone on our culinary team is really proud of it," said Carmen Montes, director of food and beverage at Ovations Food Services which supplies the concessions at the CIC. 

More than 1,000 names were submitted during the CIC's signature sandwich naming contest last month. The staff then narrowed it down to 10 different options, including the Lumberjack Stack, Gravy Sizemore and the Standing Ovation. But the name 'Penobscot Poundah' turned out to be the biggest crowd pleaser of all.

"It was really fun," explained Montes. "Our burgers are beautiful, but this one joins Maine with our Canadian neighbors and the poutin on it gives it that regional flare."

As the contest winner, Jack Keenan and his family get their name featured on the concession sign under the description of the burger. They also get two gift certificates for the Penboscot Poundah, two club level tickets to a show or concert at the CIC along with dinner for two at the buffet the night of the show or concert they attend.
