Where to Fill Your Steins: Weekend of 11/15

Just because Ushuaia shut down many, many graduating classes ago doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of great spots in and around Orono to fill the steins every weekend.  Starting today and continuing every Friday moving forward (except the ones where we’re hungover from Thirsty Thursday), we here at Fill The Steins will highlight some of the best happy hours, special events, and other happenings within designated driving distance of the UMaine campus.  In addition to the hot spots we highlight each week, if you know of anything going on that fellow UMaine students and alumni will want to be a part of, be sure to leave all the details in the comments section below.  In the meantime, here are our formal recommendations for where to fill the steins (and bellies) this weekend:

Margarita’s – 15 Mill St., Orono
In addition to their normal Friday Happy Hour from 4pm-7pm, Margarita’s in Orono is also hosting a Noche Mexicana FUNdraiser on Sunday from 4pm-close.  During the event, 15% of all pre-tax food and beverage purchases will benefit a truly great cause, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Maine.  Fill The Steins recommends you call ahead at (207) 866-4863 for details and advanced seating.

Hero’s Sports Grill – 41 Washington St., Bangor
Just down the road a piece from the Orono campus is Hero’s in Bangor.  Weekend beer specials include 22 oz. Coors Light on Friday for just $2.99 and 22 oz. Sam Adams and Angry Orchard for only $3.99 on Saturday.  Those deals’ll definitely get you where you need to be.  Plus, if you’ve got a private party, we here at Fill The Steins recommend the Hero’s Skybox, which has special food & drink menus and can hold up to 50 people.  The Skybox was good enough for The Godfather of Fill The Steins‘s 60th birthday party, so we’re pretty sure it’ll be good enough for you.

Pat’s Pizza – Campus Delivery
For you students that need to either fill your stein in your dorm or give your liver the night off, Pat’s Pizza has the perfect substantive accompaniment.  In addition to their normal campus delivery, if you order after 8pm, you’ll get a large plain pizza and large breadsticks for just $9.00.  We can’t think of a more cost-effective way to soak up your weekend booze than with all that Pat’s Pizza goodness.

So, there you have it….where to drink and what to eat this weekend around campus.  Remember to tell ’em “Fill The Steins sent ya” at all these locations for an EXTRA 20% off the deals outlined above*.  Until next time, we’ll see you at the bar!

*Void where prohibited, which is everywhere.
