Last Friday, August 8th, was a great night for baseball in Lowell! M2D2 welcomed the crowd to a pre-game party at Beer Works then enjoyed the Lowell Spinners versus State College Spikes game. An added bonus (in addition to the home team win) was the amazing display of fireworks on this spectacular summer evening!
This event is sponsored by Nutter McClennen and Fish LLP.
