Coffee Clash  
(yes, 'clash' is intentional!)

Bill Dohmen:

At Sips in Southwest Harbor
Friday, February 2, 2018, at  9:00 am

Note: new this season, in fairness to Sip's wait staff, each patron will be charged $5 and receive a coffee and pastry. Specialty drinks are $2 extra. Buy a full breakfast and forego the $5 charge. (As always, tips are welcome.)

Cancellation policy: Acadia Senior College cancels events for snow days when the MDI schools close for snow/weather events.  When the school system declares a delay, we will also cancel events occurring within the delay time period.
