It’s going to be downright balmy at the start of the weekend so you know hard-core Mainers will be wearing T-shirts and waterproof boots on the ice at the U.S. National Toboggan Championships. It’s a triple threat weekend with Valentine’s Day and the Super Bowl as well, so get ready for a jam-packed weekend.

What’s a good Valentine’s Day staycation in Midcoast? Let’s start with Rockland. Try a Valentine’s Day-themed chocolate bite at Bixby Chocolates. Or a 7/8-mile walk to Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse. Perhaps a couples’ massage at Rheal Day Spa, Skin Klinic, or Synergy Massage. Then, later dinner, and live music at Mé Lon Togo, a West African cuisine restaurant we profiled a couple of years ago. It has now moved to Rockland (10 Leland Street) and on Sunday, they are hosting A Valentine’s Day weekend lineup and special menu. Call for showtimes: 872-9146.
