To the Editor: Saying goodbye  

To the Editor: 

Along with many in the MDI community, we are sorry to learn about the closing of Sips restaurant and bar in Southwest Harbor. Sips was a vital community resource, providing a cozy meeting place with great food and drink. 

Sips was also a special place for Acadia Senior College and its members. For several years prior to the pandemic, Sips hosted monthly winter breakfast gatherings known as Coffee Clashes. Sips provided coffee and a pastry for a modest fee or would cook breakfast to order from their menu for those with heartier appetites. Then an expert on a controversial topic would give a brief introduction and discussion would ensue. Much was learned and a good time was had by all.  

We are grateful to Jennifer Worcester and her crew at Sips for their generous hospitality over many years. Thanks for the memories!
