In 2012 we told you to “Keep Calm and Stein On”. In 2013 it was all about “Blurred Steins”. This year we are giving a shout out to the earlier risers that make this UMaine tradition great. 2014 Homecoming will be going by the title of “Rise and Stein” for all those fine people across Fill The Steins Nation. As in years past, our executive committee has organized a full weekend of activities to maximize your stein filling potential. Want to join us? Use and follow the hashtag “#RiseAndStein” on Twitter all weekend long to find out where we are and what’s up next.
Here is a breakdown of our tentative schedule so far for Homecoming 2014:
5:00pm – Hilton Garden Inn/Hampton Inn
We are pleased to partner with the Hilton brand again for homecoming this year to offer discounted rates at their two Bangor locations; the Hilton Garden Inn and the Hampton Inn both on Haskell Road. While it isn’t Orono, the friendly staff at the HGI have been more than helpful through the years with our large group, especially when it comes to keeping the bar open into the wee hours of the morning.
6:00pm – Margarita’s
9:00pm – The Bear Brew Pub
Saturday October 18th
8:00am – Hannaford
The tailgating sub-committee will organize in the hotel parking lot for the caravan over to the Hogan Road Hannaford Supermarket to stock up on all the essentials for the tailgate. Cash contributions are highly encouraged, especially if you can provided funds the evening prior to allow the sub-committee the most flexibility and buying power for the event.
9:30am – Tailgating
2:00pm – Pat’s Pizza
7:00pm – Great American Grill
While previous years had us heading out to The Sports Arena in Hermon for some bowling and billards, the younger members of Fill The Steins Nation dictate slightly earlier bed times. Our Saturday evening rally point for the last few years has been the Great American Grill at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bangor where most of us are staying. The staff has been great to allow us to pretty much take over the facility for poker games, drinking, and exchanging stories with fellow stein fillers.
Sunday October 19th
11:00am – Dysart’s
