Warm Up This Winter at Arsenal Yards’ Fire Side

Fire Side at City Works welcomes residents and visitors to cozy up and enjoy the cold weather season with friends

Winters in Watertown just got warmer! Arsenal Yards invites residents and visitors alike to get toasty by the fire and enjoy a variety of entertainment in the vibrant new neighborhood. Hosted this season in a new location on the City Works patio, guests and residents of Arsenal Yards are invited to sit around the fire pit and enjoy bites, bevvies and de-lightful weekly events all winter long!

“As New Englanders continue to embrace outdoor activities and winter weather, we could not be more thrilled to bring back our popular Fire Side program this year!” said Jessica Reed, Marketing Director at Arsenal Yards. “Our second-annual Fire Side series gives our residents at Blvd & Bond, AY guests and the entire Greater Boston community the chance to warm up by the fire and enjoy delicious food and drink from City Works and spirited winter fun, right on the City Works patio, and also experience all the shopping, restaurants and entertainment Arsenal Yards has to offer.”

Fire Side will be every Tuesday beginning January 18th through March 1st from 5:30–7:30pm – perfect timing for after-work drinks, apps and laughs with friends, or a light dinner with the family. Registration is available for groups of 2–6 people two weeks in advance of each date. Groups of 2–3 guests will share a fire pit with one other group, and groups of 4–6 people will have their own fire pit. Food and beverages will be available for purchase through City Works, and those who are 21+ can purchase alcoholic beverages. Tickets are $5 per person (children ages 5 and under are free) with all proceeds benefitting the Greater Boston Food Bank, providing those in need across 190 cities and towns with food and resources. Tickets must be reserved online in advance through Eventbrite, here.

Over seven fun-filled weeks, friends can catch up while enjoying a variety of games and activities, including extreme bingo, competitive trivia, and classic board games with the chance to win gift cards to Arsenal Yards’ restaurants and retailers. Attendees can tag @ArsenalYards during their Fire Side experience to be featured on their social channels.
