Nosh looks like it will open tonight. The meat-centric sandwich joint looks like it will be open until 1 a.m.

The Fox News

Seriously, you can't make this stuff up.

Outside the Front Room, Portland police say that Jome Murphy, a self-employed contractor who occasionally works for Harding Lee Smith, threw fox urine at ROC protesters. As the Press Herald reports, "Murphy now faces seven assault charges (and a lifetime of backwoods humor)." Smith had this to say:
"Everyone who lives in the building was pretty irritated by [the protests.] I think everyone on Munjoy Hill is," via Portland Daily Sun.
Smith also allegedly bailed out Jome and bought him drinks at the Front Room.

Still open: Market Street Eats

Due to a reporting error in our Tuesday edition, Market Street Eats was listed among eateries closing last year. Actually, it remains very much open at 36 Market St. and is doing quite well, its owner notes, and intends to remain so for quite some time. We regret the error, via Portland Daily Sun.

WP: What's your vote for the most under-rated restaurant town in the country?

TS: Portland, Maine?
