A Brand New 180-Year-Old Business

In the age of Madoff, fairy tales like last April's post, Yes, Cindy, There is a Lobster Claus! invite scepticism.

Had a miracle really saved Maine's 180-year-old family business – the Frisbee Store and adjoining Cap'n Simeon's Galley? Memorial Day came and went. Ditto for the Fourth of July. No signs of new life.

End of fairy tale? No, merely an indication that restructuring evidently takes time. Last week Frisbee's 1828 Market and Cap'n Simeon's Galley held their grand reopening, complete with an appearance by Mr. and Mrs. Lobster Claus.

When you're driving up or down the New England coast, shop the Kittery Outlets by all means, but save time for the short jaunt down to Kittery Point and a meal at Cap'n Simeon's. The view is awesome.
