On Tuesday, October 1st, the Worcester Chapter of CSI hosted a “Young Professionals” social event at Recess Take 2 in West Boylston. The purpose of the event was to reach out to young professionals in the construction industry to not only give them a little exposure to what CSI is about but to also give them a chance to meet others in a fun and relaxing setting.
We had a great turnout with 15 guests. Steve VanDyke gave a short presentation on what CSI is about with a little backup from Peter Caruso which was followed by some great food and drink, and full access to Recess’ larger-than-life games including Connect 4 and Battleship. The group of guests came from either architecture or contracting firms with a large contingency from Consigli. It was great to see everyone socialize and unwind after a day at work which was exactly the goal we were looking for. We hope that the participants were able to get a good idea of what CSI is about and we look forward to seeing them attend a few of our future programs in an effort to become a member.
Recess Take 2 is an “adult playground” and bar featuring a turf field, replica Green Monster and life-size versions of your favorite board games. The venue, located in the Checkerboard building at 216 West Boylston St., includes an open play area with giant versions of classic board games like checkers, chess, Battleship, Scrabble, KerPlunk and Connect Four, as well as a turf field and full bar with 16 local beers on tap.
