With holidays coming up, why not consider Common Ground for holiday work parties or when you need to reserve a room for large groups. A heated patio is also coming soon. His holiday hours are: Thanksgiving Night Open at 6pm and Christmas Eve and Christmas Night open starting at 7pm.
If you are a beer aficionado, try his beer sample – 4 beer samples of 3 ounces; get full pint of what you like, $10.
Common Ground is worth the trip “off-campus” from Newton!
