I like to call this annual gathering a “chew & mingle” event – and it takes place on Tuesday, November 11th, 2008 from 6-9:30pm.

You can buy tickets at the YMCA (13th and Washington) or online.

The 21st annual Taste of Hoboken

The Taste of Hoboken comes of age. The annual Hoboken-North Hudson YMCA gala fundraiser celebrates its twenty-first anniversary this year on Tuesday November 11, 2008 at Stevens Institute of Technology (Canavan Arena) in Hoboken.

In addition to tasty bites from over 56 restaurants (up from 40 last year), bakeries and cafes, this years event will feature an expanded selection of quality wines from all over the world. For the first time in the fundraisers history, guests will be able to sample wines from all around the world, micro beers and a sampling of single malt scotches, premium vodkas, rums and tequilas.

Cost: $80.00 for the champagne preview and the $60.00 general admission. Ticket price is tax deductible.

NOTE: No one under 21 years old will be admitted.

We bought tickets but ended up not being able to go. Too bad — it sounded like a fun event all along — we’ll try again next year. No one under 21 was a plus for us even if there were no liquor — you know that if you allow kids, you will have some parents who have to drag the kids along and insist they get them in for free because they won’t eat much, and then the kids act as you would expect them to act with that kind of parent. I am happy to pay extra to keep it a grown-up event.

[quote comment=”118246″]I went last night, it was a great time. The food was great, it was not crowded and there were not really any lines for anything. We could just walk right up taste what we wanted. I have to hand it to Gianonne Wines and Liquors, they went all out. There was 50 tables of wine, beer, and liquor. I did not go last year but heard they ran out of wine, there was no way that could have happened this year. I did not notice anyone that looked like a party crasher. We just did the $60 ticket and did not attend the champagne toast part.[/quote]
Thanks for making me feel that I was there since I could not make it 😛

creative angel, have you ever been to the TofH? you soound like you really don’t have any idea what you’re taking about. you never go to fund raisers, you don’t donate yourself. you have never tried to solicit funds from wealthy donors and don’t have the slightest clue how the dynamics work. charge less so the whole town can go? this is a fund raiser not a “feed the F’ng poor” event.
did the “21 and over” rule this year keep out all the YMCA staff party crashers and their 63 “cousins” from ruining the event again?
