We've had a giant week with three big events, and we just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone along the way.  

First we joined the Substitutes for a battle of the bands.  The Subs are a hip vintage rock and roll band that is making its way to a huge following by playing great songs from the 60's and 70's.  They had decided that if they won the final round of the battle of the bands at Bentley's in Arundel, Maine, they wanted "Whoopie Time" which is a crazy yummy and fun time of tossing whoopie pies out to their fans.  So, we joined them and of course they won...and "Whoopie Time" was more fun than we had ever expected!  What a frenzy!

Then, one of our favorite events, Harvest on the Harbor Grand Tasting was up.  Its an upscale tasting of the most amazing food combinations along with wines, beers and spirits.  There were seared scallops with cucumber, liver pate studded with black and tan sesame seeds with a dollop of puree of fig, crab cakes with a mustard sauce, there was even chicken on a waffle with a balsamic glaze. All of the best chefs were there making delicious flavor combinations, Gorgeous Gelato was there, Coffee by Design was there and of course we were was a delicious night!

Our final event was PumpkinFest at LLBean.  We were invited to be part of the food, at the event, by Whole Foods Market. PumpkinFest is a big fundraiser for Camp Sunshine.  There were games for kids, pumpkin carving, bands playing great music and great foods.  We had so much fun meeting whoopie pie fans and hearing their comments after eating our Drunken Punkin whoopie pies.

We just want to thank everyone along the way for letting us be part of one giant fun week!  We wouldn't have missed it for the world! 

It's the most delicious week of the year!
