St Ann’s Festival

7/23/2007 Update:

After calling St. Ann’s twice today, they indicated that they were trying to keep the feast on today. However, as just heard on the live police scanner, the feast is apparently canceled (a worker told an officer on the premises).

I called again to verify and indeed the feast itself is canceled. No Zeppole’s for you tonight.

However, you’re in luck if you want to see The Nerds play! They have an indoor venue over at Shades of Hoboken at 720 Monroe Street. So check it out!

See below for some pix of the “beer tent”.

How many people actually enjoy the beer tent? And why?
It’s just crap tap beer at full price. Yeah sure it can be fun to go with the right crowd, but can also be a giant pain in the ass. Unless, of course, you really love Bud Light in plastic cups?

Description – Rides, Games, Food, Music, procession throught the streets
Address – 701 Jefferson St, Hoboken, New Jersey ( NJ ) 07030
Telephone – (201) 659-1114

    Yeah, if there’s an idiots of the month quote club.

    anyone else see the irony in eam and danzig’s posts? anyone go to catholic school here? ever go to a Latin Mass? ha ha ha !! the only reason that spanish is even spoken in the caribbean and south america is because the church gave their blessing to the explorers and missionaries to convert the heathens (and find treasure of course) and expand their influence. Latin America is probably the largest concentration of Catholics on the planet. and….having a latin night is actually a very good idea on the part of St Ann’s. you see, in this way, both communities (the Italian and the Spanish) can enjoy the festival without having their community leaders vying for attention on the same night. and we all know how well italian women and spanish women can get along when their boyfrinds start checking out the other women. yeah, better to simply allocate ONE NIGHT for the spanish speaking community and let everyone have fun.
    ever notice how close Italian and Spanish sound, depending on the region? they are both romance languages, meaning derived from Latin. you guys are dopes.

    You mean “La Scala”?

    That place was very good. I was very sad to see it closed since I only had 2-3 meals there, they were always excellent.

    It was probably the classiest Italian place in Hoboken.[/quote]

    I think MF was referring to La Tartufaria… That was a great place, albeit with some random hours…
    The st annes feast is a farce these days… If they’ve gotten greedy and pushed out the local stores, then this stupid tradition deserves to die…

    Ok – let’s be clear here. I was LAUGHING at Danzig’s post because it was so ridiculous and over the top. How could that possibly be a serious post? Lighten up folks – I am not a hater and could care less whether we have Latin night or not. I just miss the polish food.

  5. Journey says:

    I have to agree with Danzig. I’m not Catholic any longer, but that was my upbring. I see the feasts like St. Ann’s as being Catholic. In Hoboken it might have very very Italian traditions, but it is for the congregates of St. Ann’s, and I’m sure their are those in the church of Spanish, Irish, and Polish heritage. All of which are ethnic groups that lean towards Catholicism.

  6. strand tramp says:

    ok so it was MF who doesn’t know anything about the Catholic Church history, and Danzig was just showing his Nazi side…and eam was just laughing at danzig…but, wtf is Journey trying to say? i swear, her posts make me stop and puzzle more than anyone else here. ha ha ha ha 😯

    Wait, the Catholic Church has GOTTEN greedy? I will be selling indulgences and pepperoni bread tonight on the church steps. Hallelujah.

    Does anyone know when this years festival is set to take place? I can’t find it anywhere.

    • whineanddineinhob says:

      The feast will begin on Monday, July 20th. It is a week long, and it always ends on the feast day of St.Ann which is July 26th. These dates are the same every year.
