Summer doesn't officially end until September 22nd, but let's face it: as soon as Labor Day has passed, it becomes all about football, apple picking, and pumpkin spice everything. And even though it was ninety degrees out the day the Yelp Elite Squad of Maine celebrated our "So Long Summer, Hello Harvest Reception" at The Brunswick Tavern we certainly embraced the idea of the soon-to-be change in seasons!
Donning shades of red, orange, and yellow we enjoyed pumpkin spice martinis to welcome back our old friend fall, while pink flamingos and pinwheels wrapped in oak and maple foliage decorated the beautiful banquet space our event was hosted in. The food included heartier fare from both the Tavern and banquet room's autumnal menus, like chunky seafood paella served in seashells, bison meatballs with blueberry barbecue sauce, jumbo pork belly potato skins, old school shrimp cocktail, and a beautiful veggie antipasto plate. Guests enjoying an endless supply of these hor d'oeuvres while playing a few icebreaker games (one that included plastering each other with "You're Cool", "You're Funny", "Hot Stuff", and "People Like You On Yelp" stickers).
Such a joy to be in Brunswick on the date of Joshua Chamberlain's birthday, too!
The Tavern was gracious and generous, and we look forward to returning in cooler weather to enjoy their private patio with individual fireplaces. For now, be sure to check out the fab reviews here; and, relive the evening through our photos found on Flickr, too!
