WWJD: Where Will Jimmy Drink

It’s that rare time during the semester when our boy Jimmy can fluant his perfect grade point average at all of the local waterholes simply because he hasn’t had to pass in a single assignment yet. Never the humble type, Jimmy informed his advisor that he was “currently” on pace to make the Dean’s List this semester and come off academic probation. Jimmy took things one step further and even joined the Orono Chapter of MENSA so he can rub elbows with professors, lawyers, and doctors which he now considers his intelectual equals. With so many things looking up for Jimmy whatelse could he do this weekend but head out on the town and celebrate; here are his picks for places to “Fill The Steins”.
The Focus Group (Next Generation Theatre, Brewer): Here’s a little known gem that Jimmy stumble upon over winter break, an up-and-coming local improv comedy troupe right in his own backyard. If you like your jokes unscripted and rolling with the punches, join Jimmy on Friday Night for the group’s next live show with admission just $5. Since it is a show for “mature audiences” Jimmy will take the bus from campus to Bangor and then make the walk across the bridge to Brewer brown bagging a fifth of Knob Creek Bourbon.
Maine Hockey vs UNH (Alfond Arena, Orono): Perhaps the biggest weekend of the hockey regular season is upon us, the home-and-away series with the University (of) No Hardware that will see the Black Bears play in Durham Friday Night before playing the return leg in Orono Saturday. Jimmy has something special planned for Saturday’s pre-game, a cook-out of sorts behind Hilltop where the “wildcats” will be served up. Of course Jimmy wouldn’t be serving actual wildcats, such as lynx or mountain lions, instead it will be some feral cats he found in the University Forest just behind the Rec Center. Keep an eye out for a tan 1989 Dodge Shadow with the tailgate open or just follow the smell as Jimmy cooks up some cats. Beverage of choice for this event is of course a couple PBR Pounders.
Snowshoeing at Hirundo (Old Town): After chowing down on the wildcats Saturday Jimmy will be looking to burn off a couple of LB’s by heading out to Hirundo to take part in a snowshoeing tour Sunday afteroon. If you’ve never been snowshoeing Jimmy has the following advice; drink enough so you can’t feel your feet, dress warmly, and bring a flask just in case you regain feeling in your feet. Hirundo offers a variety of terrain from trails along the water to more advanced hills through the trees and there is plenty of wildlife to see as well. With Hirundo being one of the great wildlife viewing areas in Maine, Jimmy will be priming up with some Wild Turkey before he heads out.
