The Ramp – Cape Porpoise, Maine

ep-389-cover

Episode 389 – July 8, 2016

Join us for some great seafood at the Ramp in Cape Porpoise, Maine. We discovered this little restaurant / bar last year during our first trip up to Maine. Located underneath the main restaurant, Pier 77, you literally walk down the “ramp” to get to it. The decor is made up of old and new political and sports memorabilia, and serving up some of the finest seafood anywhere!

Famous for their lobster roll and seafood stew, our favorites, but you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu!

Wells Beach Lobster Pound with Troy Brown

ep-387-cover

Episode 387 – June 24, 2016

This week we visit one of our favorite places in Maine, the Wells Beach Lobster Pound. Owner Troy Brown explains the history of the restaurant started by his Grandfather and now passed down to him. Troy started when he was just 9 years old and has been part of the Lobster Pound now for 39 seasons!

We learn about the different kinds of Maine Lobster, pick a fresh pound and a half “soft shell” female, boil it up fresh and enjoy the delicious, succulent lobster with melted buttah and house made cole slaw. (that’s not a typo) Everything is bettah with buttah!

We also enjoy one of the best lobster rolls you’ll find anywhere. Troy shows us just how they create these incredibly tasty treats with the only ingredients being the fresh lobster meat from their tanks, a little mayo and a soft toasted split top roll. Nothing could be bettah!

So check out this week’s video and see why we love the Wells Beach Lobster Pound so much!

Episode 383 – This week we bring you the two newest acts added to Cirque du Soleil ‘La Nouba’. During the Awaken Summer Media event, we had the pleasure of viewing the new additions to La Nouba, it’s not the entire show, just the two new acts, “B Boys and Aerial Bamboo”.

B Boys is a fast paced “break dance” type act where three guys spin, twist, jump and flip! Aerial Bamboo is a traditional circus act rarely performed today, you can count the number of top professionals doing it on one hand.
