According to local Maine paper The Free Press, the long-awaited grand re-opening went off with a bang last weekend with a party featuring pizza fresh out of the stone oven, hot dogs and burgers, a crowd of about 600 people and, of course, live music. Local groups The Mallett Brothers and the Route 17 Ramblers provided the entertainment, with Fishman joining both groups as a special guest.Phish Drummer Jon Fishman Elected For Local Political Office In Maine HometownThe store, which was built in the mid-19th century, has been closed for almost a decade. According to a 2016 report in Penobscot Bay Pilot, Fishman and his wife, Briar, purchased the mid-19th century Lincolnville General Store in 2011, but wound up selling it to another family to focus on the upkeep of their making their local farm. After the buyers made initial renovations to the store, the Fishman family put in an offer and wound up buying back the property and continuing the upgrading process.The store’s focus is on organic and store-made products, including prepared foods and condiments. Since the Fishmans have five children, they can understand the importance of an all-in-one store, and the Lincolnville General Store aims to be just that. The property also features an outdoor porch area, WiFi, and a brick oven pizza stop for residents to come and chat. They’ll also work with local businesses to ensure that they aren’t stepping on anyone’s toes, and are planning to break into groceries and delivery services for the elderly and handicapped townspeople. “Most markets don’t just sell their own stuff,” Briar told the Penobscot Bay Pilot back in 2016. “It takes the community to stock the shelves and we will be working with not only local farmers, but local bakers, local artisans and craftspeople.”Particularly with Phish toning down the scope of their famously extensive touring schedule this year, Fishman and his family have continued to make themselves an important part of the local Lincolnville community–and make Lincolnville just a little more special in the process.Congrats to Jon, Briar, and the town of Lincolnville on the new store!You can watch full footage of The Mallett Brothers Band’s performance at the opening of the Fishmans’ new Lincolnville General Store, featuring a sit-in from Jon Fishman himself, via the store’s Facebook page:Check out assorted videos and clips from the Lincolnville General Store Grand Re-Opening below via Instagram:last_img read more

Pogba doubtful for season opener after returning to training

first_img The Frenchman is, however, still a doubt for Manchester United’s 2020-21 Premier League opener against Crystal Palace next weekend, as his fitness is slightly behind where it needs to be, according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Loading… Paul Pogba has returned to training after recovering from COVID-19 following his positive test 15 days ago prior to joining the French national team for international duty.Advertisement “Paul’s had a couple of training sessions so he’s lost out on a few sessions because of the virus, of course.“But Paul is quick to get fit. Of course, he worked really hard to get back after lockdown last time and played the majority of the games.“Hopefully, he’ll be ready for next weekend. I am not 100 percent sure, though.”Pogba missed most of the 2019-20 season through injuries, but the 27-year-old World Cup winner was sensational alongside fellow midfielder and new boy Bruno Fernandes as Man United went 6W-3D-0L in nine games — and finished third — following the resumption of the season.center_img Promoted ContentWhat Is A Black Hole And Is It Dangerous For Us All?5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemDid You Know There’s A Black Hole In The Milky Way?Who Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Best & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made9 Celebrities Who Look Older Than They Really Are5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksThe Best Cars Of All Time9 Best Movie Robots Of All TimeSome Impressive And Almost Shocking Robots That ExistTarantino Wants To End His Career With This Movie?
