Over the weekend, I was lucky enough to be invited to one of Maine Restaurant's premiere events - CRAVE, at Coffee By Design in Portland.

It was a coffee lover's dream! Some of the best spots in Portland were there serving up samples of their coffee infused treats, beers, and cocktails. Walter'sThe Frisky WhiskDean'sSweetsCakes by Babbs, LLCFoley's CakesLandry's ConfectionsStones Cafe & BakeryStandard Baking Co.baristas + bites,Sur LieLove KupcakesVena's Fizz HouseNorway Brewing Company were all on hand!

The event sold out well in advance. Which is great news, because proceeds from tickets sales are going to benefit a great local organization - Preble Street Teen Services.

If you missed it this year, I highly recommend you check out CRAVE next year. And be sure to get your tickets well in advance.

A great event is even better when you're sharing it with someone special!
