The emilie inc. team joined the Convention and Visitor's Bureau of Greater Portland at their first 2014 member mixer held at Boone's. We ran into old friends and met new members as we enjoyed an evening filled with networking and delicious food.
Have you had a chance to visit this new hot spot on Commercial Street? Officially named Boone's Fish House and Oyster Room and casually referred to as Boone's, the newest Harding Lee Smith hangout opened late last summer and has been drawing crowds to taste the freshest oysters and enjoy fabulously named cocktails such as the Casco Bay Breeze and Desperate Housewife. The completely renovated restaurant has two outdoor decks offering water views and two distinct menus in their upstairs and downstairs dining rooms.
Evenings are bustling with happy hour at both 4-6p and 9-11p Monday thru
Thursday (10p-12a Friday thru Saturday). Yes, that's right, TWO happy
hours! You now have no excuse to not stop in to try their Maine lobster
wood oven flatbread pizza. Yum!
The upstairs dining room can be rented for meetings and private events, including rehearsal dinners! It fits up to 150 for a cocktail-style event, and 75 for a seated dinner. Still hunting for your Portland area rehearsal dinner location? They currently have only a few Friday evenings still open on their calendar. Reach out to events manager Heather (who is getting hitched herself this year! You can compare notes!) to learn more.
Take a peek at some of Emilie's photographs below. Can you just imagine how wonderful this will be in warm weather?! We'll be there for sure!
