13 Things To Do This Weekend (Nov 15-Nov 17)

new-bedford-weather What’s the story with this weekend’s weather ? It’s actually going to be a relatively great weekend in terms of weather! While will get close to freezing as a low overnight on Saturday, it will be in the middle to upper 50s all weekend. For some of us, that is still T-Shirt weather! Best part of the weekend is a 0% chance of rain. So head outdoors and enjoy the good weather before it gets cold and snowy!

Dock-U-Mentaries Film Series “Tugging Through Time” (7:00 pm-8:00 pm)
Tugging Through Time, a documentary produced by Third Wave Films, is the story of New York Harbor tugboats, from the first steam ferries, to today’s state of the art Z Drive Tractor Tugs. The film combines rare footage of early steam tugs, on board footage of today’s modern tugs at work, interviews with tugboat company presidents, and an original soundtrack. The film will be followed by a slide show depicting a decade of work at the New Bedford-based Tucker Roy Marine Towing and Salvage Company (circa 2000-2010). Members of the Roy family, which has three generations of tug boat operators, will be on hand to answer questions about the work of tugboats and barges.

FHS Theatre Company presents “Arsenic and Old Lace” Day 1 (7:30 pm)
The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, NY, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves.

His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and “just a pinch” of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts’ victims); and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein to conceal his identity and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff (a self-referential joke, as the part was originally played by Karloff). $12 adults, $10 for students and seniors, $7 for children under 12. Tickets available at the door.

Weld Square at No Problemo W/Till Tomorrow (10 pm)
Weld Square is a Rock & Roll trio from New Bedford, MA. Formed in 2011, the group consists of Joe Froias on vocals and guitar, Kev Patrick Nunes on bass, and Derek Brasseur on drums. In 2012, they released an EP called Femme de Maison. Catch them live and FREE with Till Tomorrow starting at 10pm.
