Peppinos customers WORK IN during March Madness




GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- March Madness has begun, but just how can you watch the games during your work day?  A Grand Rapids sports bar may have the answer.  Peppinos on Ionia Avenue hosted a “Work In” day Thursday where people could bring in their laptops or smartphones to stay connected to work, while they watched the games.

Participant Rob McCarty said, “You know, it’s just exciting to be able to come and hang out, watch a couple of the games, do a little bit of work, do a little bit of watch and have a little bit of fun with everyone who’s down here.”

A three hour table reservation cost $100 and all of the proceeds went to Friends of Grand Rapids parks to install new basketball hoops at Martin LutherKing Junior Park.
