Craving lobster? Then the 7th annual "Bears 'n Claws" dinner is for you. The event is Sunday from 4-8. For $25 Black Bear fans can stop by for some lobster and meet some of the players the made it all the way to last years NCAA Tournament.


"While it does help that its more of a "friend" raising kind of thing I mean we have live music entertainment we'll have seven of our players there over the summer that usually aren't here," Maine women's basketball head coach Amy Vachon said.
