Your Weekend

A Mid-Winter’s YOUR WEEKEND

Weekend Pass

SATURDAY, FEB. 10 – We’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that, in addition to fun, you can also practice some coworking now during Your Weekend. Indulge your side-hustle right here at Groundwork!, as we open on the weekend to guests for the month of February. You don’t have to be a member to enjoy spacious tables, fast wi-fi and free hot coffee from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Weekend Pass rates and further info can be found here.

Buzzards Bay Brewing goes acoustic

SATURDAY, FEB. 10 – David Alves – who has a nice habit of performing for diners at Cotali Mar restaurant on New Bedford’s Acushnet Avenue – goes acoustic at a different venue today that we’re equally fond of: Buzzards Bay Brewing. Come hear Dave in the heated factory from 4:00-7:00 p.m. Buzzard’s Bay Brewing is located at 98 Horseneck Road; learn more about Alves at www.davealvesmusic.com.

Here is what is going down: From 12:00 p.m – 5:00 p.m. we are going to have a super sale on anything gaming related and other stuff that simply can’t come with us… “ You can check out what they’re selling on the Facebook event page here.
