Even the Food Industry has Black Sheep.

On Friday March 5th from 6-8 Rabelais will host an opening reception for the collection of Dr. Lou Jacobs of Mug Shots 1899-1954.

A motley assortment of cooks, bakers, waiters, dishwashers, bartenders and butchers who lost control and broke the law. The arrested were murderers, thieves, pimps and fugitives. Some were simply drunk & disorderly. Many of the documents are from San Francisco, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. All of the mug shots are original.

In honor of Maine Restaurant Week, come out and see the underside of the hospitality business....
