BANGOR – Get ready to fill your belly with delicious beer, wine and wings on the Waterfront this weekend.

The Best of the North Festival – an event born of a collaborative effort by the Greater Bangor Convention and Visitors Bureau (GBCVB) and the United Way of Eastern Maine - is set to take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Bangor Waterfront.

The festival represents the coming together of three unique events – the CVB’s Wine on the Waterfront and Tap into Summer and the United Way’s Wingfest Maine. The Best of the North Festival will also feature local music and the addition of a kid zone, creating a family-friendly hybrid of both organizations’ events.

All told, there will be 28 brewers, 20 wing vendors and a dozen purveyors of wine and spirits in attendance – more than enough variety for a fan of any or all of these wonderful things. Tickets are $28 per person for just wings, $50 per person for the wings, wine and beer combo ticket or $70 per person for the VIP ticket; they can be purchased at www.bestofthenorth.com.

Unusual ways to use regular household products

The next time you're in need of a pest repellent, stain remover or something to remedy an ailment, check your pantry before heading to the store. You might just find what you need and, surprisingly, it may simply be a common kitchen ingredient.

For years people have had their own uses for different products, some of which seem very unusual but work. So I thought I would take some time to surf the web and talk to a few friends to compile a list of great, thrifty and eco-friendly uses for everyday household items that you may not have thought of.

School adults can 'wine' about

Bangor Wine & Cheese offers Wine and Beer classes

BANGOR - Merlot, pinot noir, chardonnay, riesling - the options are endless and sometimes overwhelming when it comes to wines. But Eric Mihan is hoping to help the public narrow down which wines best suit their own personal palate at the Wine Underground Beverage School, located inside his Bangor Wine & Cheese store.

"There's nothing like this that's been done in Maine," said Mihan. "We all sleep and we all eat and drink, so why not take a third of your life and do something to make it a little better?"

Last week the wine school held its first course, Wine Appreciation 101. During the one-hour class Mihan taught participants about taste-testing, properly serving and storing wine and how to choose a bottle from among the numerous options available at stores and restaurants.
