Even though things usually shut down on holidays, you do have options for food & beverage here in the Bangor area!

If the mood strikes you to head out and have a drink, or a meal with friends and family, it can be a little confusing to figure out who is open and who isn't. Most places will either be closed, or have abbreviated hours, but if you need to get out of the house to spread a little Christmas cheer, we have some answers for you. Let's face it, sometimes by the time you have spent several hours trapped indoors, you just need to get out and have a cold one, or a bite to eat.

If you are specifically looking for a meal, it is probably a good idea to call ahead, and make a reservation, or check on the crowd size. Since there are fewer businesses open on the 24th & 25th, the places that are open will more than likely see additional foot traffic.

Check out the list, and have a very Happy Holiday, from all of us here at Townsquare Media!
