    5 things to do this weekend, 2.19.09

    1. OK, here's a big plan for a night out in Bangor on Friday. Start the evening off with the Downtown Bangor Art Walk, set for 5 to 9 p.m. and featuring seven locations around downtown, including 31 Central Street, the Bennett Gallery, also on Central Street, Central STreet Yoga and Studios, Metropolitan Soul, the Exchange Street Building, the University of Maine Museum of Art and One Lupine Fiber Arts on PArk Street. It's completely free, and you'll get a chance to see some of the great artists that live and work in our community. For more info, call 561-3350.
    2. After that, check out the first Penobscot Theatre production of 2009 is "Dinner With Friends," the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama written by Donald Marguiles, which will open at 8 p.m. on Friday at the Bangor Opera House. Tickets are available at the box office; for more info, visit
    3. And then, after you've had Dinner with Friends, go have some drinks with friends, at the newly-reopened Luna Bar and Grille on Park Street, the downtown nightspot formerly known as the New Moon Cafe. A renovated space includes a piano bar, a revamped menu and new cocktails. There, now isn't that a delightful evening in the Queen City?
    4. HOWEVER! If you're not Bangor-centric, then take a drive up to Orono on Friday night to check out the National Acrobats of China at the Collins Center for the Arts. The performance starts at 8 p.m., and tickets are available by calling 581-1755.
    5. Finally, opening on Saturday at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockport is a new photography exhibit titled "On and Off the Midway." 25 photographers, including the BDN's own Kate Collins and Bridget Brown, document the festivities at state fairs, ice fishing derbys and and beach side resorts throughout the summer in Maine. The exhibit runs through June 21; for more info, visit
