Another lunchtime. Another hot day near the sea. We've been to Portland once or twice a year for the best part of a couple of decades. Exchange Street is the street that extends up from Gritty McDuff's. A bunch of tourist traps, restaurants, art galleries face the sidewalks. The Thirsty Pig is a newish place mid-block.
Best decision after the nap at Willard Beach. Twenty-six bucks bought a light lunch for five including an Allagash White for me. Cheery lightly tattooed folk were running the place. Lot of cheery lightly tattooed folk in New England these days. Shirtless guy left before our food appeared. That was a good thing. Incidentally, a great place to leave your shopping bag and retrieve it later. The Shermanator hot dog was a hit with the shopping bag forgetful one.
