If you miss the old restaurant off Broadway, then you may want to make plans to drive thru the Bangor Waterfront this coming Sunday night.

Looks like both John and Joe Baldacci are getting ready for a supper drive thru event that's scheduled for this Sunday beginning at 5. The boys can be seen in the Facebook post below stirring the family's famous Italian sauce that was well known in Bangor and surrounding communities for decades.

Just like the old days you can stop by this Sunday and pick up a quart of sauce, along with spaghetti, a bulky roll, bread sticks and dessert for a nominal fee.  Proceeds will then be passed along to the Brewer School Department and Camp CaPella, the summer camp for both kids and adults with mental and physical disabilities on Phillips Lake in Dedham.

John and I are already stirring the pots for the Spaghetti and homemade sauce coming next week to Bangor. Sunday October...

Back in 1933, the Baldacci family opened the Baltimore Restaurant in downtown Bangor, and it quickly became a favorite with those that lived within the City and the surrounding towns.  Folks would stop by to buy a gallon of Italian sauce and some meatballs to bring home.

The family eventually opened Momma Baldacci's Italian Restaurant off Broadway on Alden Street in 1975. The business sported a homey atmosphere, and back then you were more than likely greeted at the door and seated by John, the future Governor of Maine.  Mama was normally seated in one of the booths and autographed photos of sports heroes, celebrities and politicians hung on the walls.

So, if you'd like to take a trip down memory lane and experience a taste of Italy that you probably haven't enjoyed for a while, then this Sunday may be the day to do so.
