What's Happening this Week Inn and Around Portland

I'm already excited about what's happening this week. I anxiously await the return of Roomful of Blues every time they have a visit to Maine on their exhausting touring schedule. This Saturday they will be performing live at the Montgomery Theatre at 826 High Street, Bath at 7:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased through The Chocolate Church. If you haven't had the opportunity to enjoy these guys live, you are missing out on a great time.

Portland State Company is offering previews of "Peer Gynt" by Henrik Isben starting on Tuesday evening, with the opening slated for Friday night. Tickets run $13-$36. Mad Horse Theatre Company has ended it's brief break and is now performing in the studio theatre at the Portland Stage presenting "The Clean House" through February 8th. The Good Theatre 76 Congress Street, Portland is helping us shake away with winter blues with "A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum" through February 15.

We are just a little more than a week away from February's First Friday Art Walk which will be no less magical just because we are in a deep freeze! We have two vacancies left for February 6th at the Pomegranate. This would make a great getaway just before Valentine's Day, and I don't expect these last rooms to be available for long.

Welcome From the Pomegranate Inn

Greetings from the kitchen of the warm and cozy Pomegranate Inn. We have tossed the idea of a blog around for a very long time. Unfortunately it kept getting shuffled to the background by other starting a new events and catering management group! After just having a conversation with a guest this morning about Portland and all the really wonderful things there are to do here....even now....deep in the icy winter months....I decided there was no better time than the present to kick off a blog to accompany our web site. Here you will find not only what is happening here at the Pomegranate, but what is happening all around the Portland area. This will be a great place to subscribe to, or to visit as you are planning your trip to the area. Feel free to email me with things you would like to see highlighted here as well. As many of you already know, we have begun an events and catering management company called Pomegranate Parties. This is business we put together to share the beautiful surroundings here at the Pomegranate and also at the West End Inn and the Brunswick Inn on Park Row with people that are looking for a very special place to throw a spectacular, yet intimate event. Pomegranate Parties has its very own blog as well, and a great place to check out what is happening in the events and entertaining world. I am excited about a new avenue for talking up this great town of Portland which I adopted as my home town just a few short months ago. I felt right at home from the first week here, and am really enjoying getting to it better each day. I hope you will enjoy the ride right along with me!
