A seasonal a la carte menu presented by Lark Hotels Group Executive Chef Justin Perdue will include lobster toast, oysters, mimosas and more. Additionally, on Wednesday, May 17th at 7:00pm, Pig + Poet honors its history with its inaugural Poetry Night hosted by Maine’s own Joe Ricchio and featuring poet Arielle Greenberg. Pig + Poet will offer buck-a-shuck oysters on Poetry Night, and every subsequent Wednesday this season.

Pig + Poet’s Poetry Jam honors the memory of Edna St. Vincent Millay, who was discovered at Whitehall in 1912. Joining featured poet Arielle Greenberg will be Maine-based writers Meg Willing, Roxanne Dragon, Rufus Nicoll, Nick Schroeder, Adelyn Connolly and Jacob Fricke. The cost to attend Poetry Night is $12, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance, which specifically supports female writers in the midcoast region. Tickets can be purchased by visiting Eventbrite. The poet with the best explanation of why they should receive an overnight stay at Whitehall will be deemed the winner.
