The Lanigan Bridge linking Kennebunk and Kennebunkport is now closed to traffic for 45 days, or approximately April 22. Fear not, though, the footbridge over the Kennebunk River is now open, and quite the fun outing for folks, we've seen! It won't be there forever, so "brave the bridge" while you can! (Snap a selfie and tag #bravethebridge on social media and tell the world you've lived to tell the story!)
Neighboring businesses are taking advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity by offering specials during this 45-day period.
Toroso: Thursday, March 9 is Happy Hour menu all night long! So that's 1/2 off glasses of wine and $5 tapas menu all night!
Morph Gallery: "OMG the Bridge is Out and It's March and Icky Outside Raffle" is still going on! Come one, come all, put your name in the jar - wait till the end of the day, when you get called because you've WON come back anytime within 7 days and get one thing at HALF OFF. (not to be used for consignment items.)
HB Provisions: Between March 6 and April 20, enjoy 45-cent coffee and breakfast sandwiches for $4.50. There will be a daily sandwich special for $4.50, plus 15% off all wine and 5% off all beer until April 20. Parking is available onsite, and if you're coming from the Port, park behind Alisson's and walk the footbridge!
HB Provisions / Guay's Sunoco: Three doors down from one another, these two businesses are partnering up to offer 50% off all breakfast sandwiches at H. B.'s with a gas fill-up at Guays!
Alisson's: While the Lanigan bridge is closed, enjoy Burger + Brew every Tuesday night. All menu or specialty burgers with a pint of your favorite beer is $12. Offer available between 5 and 9 p.m. every Tuesday.
Striper's at the Breakwater Inn: Since demolition isn't going to be for only an hour, neither should Happy Hour. Striper's is extending its Happy Hour for all day, any day, during March, which includes a glass of house wine or a craft draught beers for $4 and 20% off appetizers. As part of their Lobster Lovers deal, get one appetizer and one entrée for $30.
While they last, get your official Bridge Closure Survival Bag, courtesy of The Chamber and local businesses. In it you'll find ear plugs, the York County Coast Star with your latest update, among other goodies. And stop by the Chamber or H. B. Provisions for your very own "I Walked the Footbridge" commemorative pin!
