Portland Speak Easy tonight! || A unique public speaking experience.

 

Portland Speak Easy

Portland Speak Easy

Buoy Local owner Sean Sullivan and Katalyst owner Kyle Poissonnier have come together to form Portland Speak Easy.  Both are small business owners in Portland.  Both agreed their was a need in Portland in the winter of 2014 to have something different.  The different idea was for anyone and everyone to get together and work on their public speaking skills in front of an audience and then receive constructive feedback.  The biggest fear for most people is public speaking and people who have to speak frequently need a way to practice their skills.

 

The group meets every other Wednesday night at Urban Farm Fermentory in Portland at 6pm.  Anyone is welcome to come.  Each month there is a topic presented and those who attend can give a 5-6 minute speech on the topic.  The next session will allow people to come back and perform the amended speech with the feedback and constructive criticism they received the first time.

Join them tonight at 6pm at Urban Farm Fermentory.  The topic is important failures.  UFF is located at 200 Anderson Street in Portland.  

 

This is a great opportunity for anyone to come and work on their public speaking skills.  Check it out!

The Food Network show ‘Restaurant Impossible’ will be making it’s way to South Portland in early June to film an episode at Uncle Andy’s diner!  If you aren’t familiar with the show it features celebrity chef Robert Irvine giving a struggling restaurant a second chance.  The second chance comes in a form of Irvine’s “tough love” and unconventional ways.

The show is pitched as a way to save a failing restaurant OR create a new fresh makeover and improve what they already have.  Uncle Andy’s has been in business for ten years.  The show allows Irvine 36 hours to make over dining rooms, menus, and even staff on just a $10,000 budget.

The show will tape over a weekend in early June and air later in the year.   The final results of the makeover will be revealed June 11!

The ever popular Old Port fest that usually is held on a Sunday, is now expanding to a full weekend! The festival this year will span from June 6- June 8.  The event has grown every year and recently has been drawing close to 30,000 people in the last few years, and has called for an expansion.  The same events that happen on that Sunday will still happen as they have in year’s past.  The event now becomes more of a destination rather than a one day event.

After the official announcement today the general reception of the Portland arts scene is very positive as it gives them more of an opportunity to showcase their work.  The first Friday Art Walk that happens every month in Portland will actually be the first day of this three day event this year.  Congress street will close on June 6 during the walk to create more of a festival atmosphere.  Details on the festival activities on Saturday aren’t final yet but will be released soon.

Sunday’s festivities will start as they always do with a parade down Exchange St and will follow with the plethora of live music and food vendors.  This year the music stages will increase from five stages to six.

This is great news for everyone in Portland who enjoys this great event and also for those vendors who look to make more of an impact and showcase the great arts scene in Portland.

We will update you here at I Love Portland Maine as new details emerge on this year’s Old Port Festival.
