Hoboken Breakfast Nuggets: 12/29/2010
How’s everyone recovering from the blizzard?
Fearing the Hoboken snow melt!
Another interesting trend I’m picking up on – is how many residents are so very aware of the horrific conditions of our streets – and how this blizzard just made them cringe when they thought of what they’ll be like once the snow everywhere melts.
Some residents were happy that the snow “filled in” the internal organ-jarring bumps, while many others heard the damage taking place right before their eyes, as heavy equipment (such as the loader picture below) hummed tunes like “What’s Love Got to Do with It” as they battered our roads.
Can only imagine the conditions come spring. Local Auto mechanics on the other hand, are pleased.
Citywide caffeine addiction evident
Not everyone makes coffee at home. And today, each time I visited a coffee shop (like Starbucks pictured below) there were lines practically out the door – regardless of what time I visited.
Starbucks snack deliveries also suffered, as they couldn’t make it into town.
Blizzard Videos and Photos
For those that had their heads in the
sand snow – a wonderful collection of Hoboken photos and videos from our historical blizzard graced the pages of 411, including:
- The great Hoboken411 photo contest. Lots of great entries.
- My own signature collection of captioned pics.
- And a few videos I was able to whip together – such as this one below!
Italian Handbag Withdrawal thanks to Viola Vita
Many ladies from Hoboken and beyond invest their handbag dollars at Viola Vita uptown – because they don’t care about brand-names, but rather well-made (original, non-knockoff) bags that last and look great.
Well, those ladies will have to hold on till February 5th – as Mario is working hard in Italy (yeah, right!) to bring the spring collection back to the Mile Square!
Enjoy the rest of your week (and year!)
