Competitive Female-Carrying in Maine

Number one reason to look forward to the fall: the Patriots. A close second: the North American Wife Carrying Championship at Sunday River. Which, starting today, you can now register for. Luckily, you’ve been training all summer for this.

Registration open, competition Oct 8, Sunday River, 15 S Ridge Rd, Newry, ME, 207-824-3000

Friday
Where to Get Arancini at 12:30am
LATE NIGHT

Where to Get Arancini at 12:30am

Something about the blackness of night causes the stomach to cry out for fried oyster po’boy sliders and arancini with shrimp. Now that 49 Social is offering such bar menu treats until 12:30am on Friday and Saturday nights (along with live music), such cries shall go unanswered no more.

Available now Fri-Sat, 49 Social, 49 Temple Pl, 617-338-9600

20 Breweries, 80 Beers. Giddyap.
HOME BREW

20 Breweries, 80 Beers. Giddyap.

Labor Day: a national celebration. Beer: a national pastime. The perfect marriage of the two concepts: the Mass Brewers Fest, where you’ll have more than three hours to sample over 80 beers from 20 MA-based breweries like Notch, Frosty Knuckle and Cisco. Work quickly.

Saturday
Labor Day. In White. With Ice Luging.
COOL RUNNINGS

Labor Day. In White. With Ice Luging.

Around this time of year, your white pants tend to get the blues (they know where they’re headed). So wear them to Battery Park this Saturday, and then potentially dirty them up by hitting the vodka ice luge they’ll have set up on their outdoor patio. BYO Purex.

Sunday
86-Ounce Buckets of Booze. And Limbo.
LU-WOW

86-Ounce Buckets of Booze. And Limbo.

And if there were ever a way to properly celebrate Labor Day, well, it’s a massive luau, of course. And if you choose to spend your Sunday partying with $5 mai tais, 86-ounce buckets of something called Sex on the Moon and limbo contests—you have chosen... wisely.
