The Maine Facial Hair Club is meeting upstairs on Friday evening, and MALT, the Maine Ale brewers club, is meeting there on Saturday afternoon.
But upstairs Sunday is the Arcade Showdown Tournament. The tournament starts around noon and is open to anyone with a passable knowledge of the old Atari games Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Dig Dug, Frogger, and Pac Man. Players will compete in each game to accumulate the highest total score and a chance to win the $50 first prize.
I know, I know, it’s like we’ve nailed a perfect nerd trifecta for this weekend…. and people wonder why there aren’t more women at The Goat.
Wednesday evening starting at 7:30 (tonight even) Rick St. Peter hosts the weekly cribbage tournament with the $25 first prize. There is no cost to enter.
Once again Thursday is dessert night (that’ll bring in the ladies). Chef Deanna Hernandez will be offering up chocolate cake with a lemon plum compote, vanilla bean pannacotta, and brown butter apple tarts.
Weekend music features are; Robby Simpson at 9 PM on Friday and RUCKUS plays Saturday also at 9 PM. Those are two really big shows, I’m tellin’ ya.
The quest for a second Old Goat location took me to Lubec, Maine yesterday. That’s a long friggin drive but it offers plenty of potential if you are into complete financial disasters.
The most noteworthy thing about the trip was the pair of shiny hearses parked, as if on display, in front of the Machias Home Health Service office. That’s some health service right there.
See you at The Goat,
