    BU @ Maine 1/28-29: Weekend at TIMMAY's

    Might as well get this started. I'll be heading up for the weekend. Second visit to Alfond, but first time spending more than a few hours in the Orono/Bangor area. Anyone got some suggestions for places to eat and things to do on Saturday?

Trivino has never been one of those players. Even outside of the rink, he'll say hi and is plenty of friendly, but has never been even close to saying or doing anything inappropriate.

    Pat's Pizza, Bear Brew, for breakfast Tim Horton's since you cannot get it in Mass or Governor's.

    Wish one of these was GOTW on NESN. I think since CSTV started doing collee hockey they've broadcast more games from Alfond than NESN. Seems that way anyways.

    Maine Hockey: I want to believe
    43-21-4 (.662) in games I attended over 4 years as a student
    104-47-14 (.669) in that time
    3x FROZEN FOUR

    11-20-2 in games I've attended since. (2-2-1 under Red)

    Look out for this Flynn kid; he's on a roll. That's BU's best bet and only chance.
    Me: ...but why would anyone want to vacation here? There are better mountains in NH and VT, beaches in Cape Cod and RI, and colonial landmarks in Mass and CT.

    Boss: You've got it all wrong. It's Vacationland because nobody would ever want to live here for more than a week.

    Yes, Flynn is on a roll. Hockey East Player of the Week last week for the 3rd time this year. Another player who is coming on strong in the last few games is Tanner House. Two goals against NU last night.

    For any meal, I would definately recommend Dysart's right off of I-95 exit 180. Open 24/7
    It may be 10 below, Under 5 feet of snow,
    But no matter where we go, WE ALL LOVE ORONO!!!

    Yes, Dysarts is a good choice for good meals at an affordable price. If you would like something more upscale for an evening meal and bit pricier, try Woodman's Grill in Orono. Middle of town next to Circle K store. Pat's also a good spot for breakfasts at a good price.

    I think more details are required. I mean if we're talking just a single guy with no family to drag around, he might want to just hit up Woodman's for some beer and good food. Or maybe some Verve burritos for lunch.

    Four college students. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions so far.

    Breakfast: Johnny's (old town)

    Lunch: Verve (orono)

    Dinner: Margaritas (orono)

    Drinks: Woodman's

    You won't be sorry. Unless you don't like Mexican, then go to Woodmans instead of Margs for dinner.

    Pat's in Orono is the best pizza parlor I think I've ever been to. You could go to one of the last three Howard Johnson restaurants in the country but I didn't think the food was that good.

    Pats Pizza. I had a huge plate of spaghetti and it was delish. Lots of hockey fans there too

    THIS THIS THIS

    Margs also has $2 20oz Natty's. A college student's dream.
