The Run of the Mill Public House & Brewery has become a definite favorite among the people of Biddeford and Saco, a lively gathering spots here in the "Saco Island village" for class reunions and special occasions of all kinds. Its location is certainly one reason, right on the Saco River, and its ample size is another. It’s really the only restaurant/pub that can truly say it belongs to both Biddeford and Saco. And as DownEast Magazine noted recently, Run of the Mill makes people feel cozy and comfortable:
“The pub is one of the great achievements of modern civilization — a place to see friends, meet people from walks of life that don’t normally intersect with yours, and enjoy unpretentious, tasty food and beer. That’s the view of Geoff Houghton, who has made it his life’s work to create pubs that are cozy, inviting, and full of good people. ‘If you’re a jerk, you’re not going to last long in a good pub,’ says Houghton, the 44-year-old proprietor of Hallowell’s Liberal Cup and, more recently, The Run of the Mill in Saco.”
Tomorrow night The Run of the Mill welcomes The Blues Hounds, whose leader singer (Chris Robinson of Biddeford) once got to play guitar for Mick Jagger at an impromptu jam before a Stones concert. This show is sure to draw a big local crowd. So celebrate the Red Sox winning the American League pennant by coming down to Run of the Mill after the game and hanging out with a bunch of good people. It’ll be a lot of fun! Showtime is 8:00 p.m.
