YOUR WEEKEND: Get on the bus because it’s raining men

Greek Food!!!

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 – Just a hop, skip and jump away over in Dartmouth, the annual St. George Greek Food Festival gets underway for the weekend tonight at 5:00 p.m. There isn’t a whole lot more to say about something that has “Greek Food” in the title – except maybe, “Come hungry!” If you need directions to 186 Cross Road, Dartmouth, find them here as well an entertainment schedule for the ‘fest.

Finest Kind Screening

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 – If you missed the premiere of the documentary, “Finest Kind: The New Bedford Fishing Industry” at Greasy Luck Brewpub a few weeks back, here’s another chance to catch a screening. The New Building Whaling National Park will run it this evening at 7:00 p.m. in the Corson building auditorium (entry through the Visitor’s Center on William Street), free of charge.

William Street Festival

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 – The William Street Neighborhood Festival happens today from noon – 5:00 p.m. up and down…William Street! Expect music, art, crafts, history, food and fun at this free, all ages event in downtown New Bedford, now in its second year.

Shakespeare in the Park

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 – The Glass Horse Theater Project presents “Romeo & Juliet” in Buttonwood Park today at 3:00 p.m.  The performance will take place near the Lawler Library and is free. We’re informed that this production will feature “local actors portraying a modern, dystopian, interpretation of Romeo and Juliet.” Sounds like my love life will be on the lawn!

NBx2: Wheels on Fire

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 – NBx2: The New Bedford Neighborhood Bus tour happens today beginning at 1:30pm. Departure point is Grace Episcopal Church at 133 School Street (fronting County). From there, buses will whisk you away to The Ropeworks in the North End; The Kitchen at the United House of Prayer for All People in the West End; and Youth Opportunities Unlimited in the South End. You can read all about it – and RSVP for this free tour brought to you by Groundwork! and MassDevelopment – in this previous post.

It’s raining men

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 – This is also outside New Bedford – but stars the city’s Yoga superstar, Jeff Costa – who launches The Men’s Class on Sundays this afternoon at 4:30pm at Studio on 6, 1097b State Road (Rt. 6), Westport. “Men at every level of ability, from beginner to professional, are welcome to The Men’s Class,” Jeff writes. “ Build personal power, strength, endurance, stability, mobility and range of motion in community with other men. We will target problem areas due to overuse/injury including shoulders, hips and lower back. All ages are welcome – $15.” RSVP here.
