Once again, here’s your weekly snapshot of the hot topics in and around the mile square.

Here are the Top 10 articles published, bumped or re-treaded this week that had the hottest overall discussion in Hoboken!
Hottest topics of the week
- DUI trial PBA (pushed back again)
The few of you that are left that still care about former councilman Chris Campos and his drunk driving trial will have to wait till June 19th!

- Lack of parking brings out the douchebags
One prime example of how inconsiderate some fruitcakes are in Hoboken.

Get the scoop on what’s going down with the Hudson County Freeholder election coming up June 3rd.
