joe says "mera awrd"

It's no longer a secret that Maine has some of the best restaurants in the country. Joe remembers a time when there were but a few dining options in his hometown of Portland, while now there are so many he can't keep them all straight. He appreciates what these establishments contribute to the culture and economy of our state, which is why he's promoting the Maine Restaurant Association (MERA). The mission of MERA is to represent, promote, and educate the food service industry of Maine.

Tonight is MERA's Award Ceremony. Held at the Holiday Inn by the Bay at 5:30pm, this is sure to be a fun event filled with great food and impressive Mainers. Joe hopes the event goes well and offers his thanks to all the great restaurateurs who help make our state great!
