This time of year spending a day at the office can be difficult. If you’re working a 9-5, its in the office with sun and out of the office with the moon. The good news is that the endless amount of events in New Haven can cure your post-work blues. In fact, it seems there are even more events to choose from during the cooler months. Here is a quick guide to some post-work events to check out.
