FAT BOY DRIVE-IN SERVER Jamie Alexander delivers lunch to three women who made a nearly 50-mile trip from central Maine for the Bath Road restaurant’s seasonal opening on Thursday. Beverly Wrigley of Oakland, Rachel Johnson of Augusta and Betty Pierce of Belgrade were all aboard for the afternoon trip that Wrigley said would likely include a drive from the Brunswick eatery to Lands End in Harpswell. “We’re making a day of it,” Wrigley said. While the annual mid-March opening of Fat Boy Drive-In serves as a local harbinger of spring, temperatures that soared into the 60s and forecasts for even warmer weather on Tuesday and Wednesday contributed to a widespread outbreak of spring fever throughout the Mid-coast region.
