Hudson Table

Hudson Table – A unique, fun experience coming to Hoboken

Here’s some exciting news for Hoboken coming this fall: Hudson Table opening in the Edge Lofts building uptown!

What exactly is Hudson Table, if you don’t mind?

There is nothing like Hudson Table in Hoboken. It’s basically a “group cooking” experience. Part educational, part social, recreational and interactive, and 100% about food.

Owner Allen Bari and his partners Taposh Bari and Melanie Cecillo have teamed up to actually create a unique niche in Hoboken.

  • Imagine finally learning how to use those knives you’ve received as a gift? There’s a class for that.
  • Ever want to learn how to make your own chocolate-based dish? Got that too.
  • Hate frozen pizza and want to know how you can do the same, but 100% from scratch? Yes, sir. Even in crispy, thin or doughy formats!
  • Love the Hoboken Farmers’ Markets – but don’t know what to do with all those veggies? They will have you covered!

Even more interesting is the person Allen Bari is. He’s definitely a guy who “rolls with his passions,” going from a World Series of Poker bracelet-holder, to a French Culinary Institute trained Chef who’s created a super-cool experience for Hobokenites to enjoy.

Whether you just want to explore the joyous world of cooking, or hone your already growing skills – or even have a “date night” that is profoundly more fun than sitting in a dark theater, Hudson Table seems to be right on all levels.

Be on the lookout for their opening this fall – and get in while the going is good, because we predict this concept will be off the charts!

Buggy Balance

Congrats! Hoboken Buggy Balance Kickstarter Fully Funded!

Congratulations to Anna and her Buggy Balance Kickstarter project, which became fully funded yesterday! You still have time to buy in and support this project until tomorrow night.

We even supported it and don’t have a stroller!

Parents – Do you like the Buggy Balance idea?


Hoboken resident Anna was sick of having her baby stroller tip over when her toddler decided to stretch their limbs after she went shopping. So she devised a product called Buggy Balance, which essentially keeps the stroller “weighted down” to prevent those annoying mishaps where your double-latte from Starbucks along with your Facebook-loaded iPhone come crashing to the ground.

While adding weights to the front of your stroller is no more than a 10 minute study of the situation and a trip to Home Depot – Anna has created a Kickstarter Project called Buggy Balance.

She’s looking to raise $5,000 to start this project / company where she can provide frustrated parents with the necessary “weights” to help prevent the “stroller overload” that affects countless parents every day in Hoboken and beyond.

Imagine getting you Soy-double-skinny-whatever and not having to worry about standing on line again? That thought alone is worth it, isn’t it?

Donate to her project here – and see video below.

Tally-Ho Saloon

Here we go! Tally-Ho Saloon “replaces” Bahama Mama’s in Hoboken

Well, Dave and the crew at the old Hoboken landmark have “transformed” the previous Bahama Mama’s – and will be turning it into the upcoming Tally-Ho Saloon.

In case you haven’t figured it out yet – “Tally-Ho” is essentially a phrase a hunter hollers when they see a fox when out in the field. It’s also generally meant when seeing an enemy aircraft in a state of war (I’d surmise that to be an undesirable lady approaching one or more lads at the bar as well). So hopefully Tally-Ho Saloon does not attract ladies who shovel Twinkies into their midnight snack regiment…

Either way Tally-Ho Saloon expects to open by September 12th, 2014. Let’s hope their marketing and social networking plan garners tons of new supporters and they don’t render themselves “under construction” again anytime soon. That gets tiring!

Good luck, Tally-Ho Saloon!

McLoone’s Pier House

McLoone’s Pier House

Wow – McLoone’s Pier House uptown in the former LUA spot really transformed the place!

Sure LUA was “nice,” the bar area did have a somewhat dark feeling. What the folks at McLoone’s have do is open it up quite nicely. Feels 10x bigger inside. While it might be reminiscent of a cruise ship dining hall to some degree – and not have the most intimate of atmospheres (tables are a bit close), I’m sure it will feel cozier at night.

Last I heard was they were just waiting on the permits and should finally be open this week.

Plum on the Run

Plum on the Run lunch truck in Hoboken, NJ

The owners of The Yellow Plum restaurant in Bloomfield, NJ have expanded their “empire” with their new Plum on the Run lunch truck.

Typically set up downtown near Pier A Park up to five days a week, the “classically trained” chefs are proud to offer their cooking expertise at affordable prices for Hoboken residents and visitors alike. They also sometimes setup near Sinatra Park and / or River Street as well (I guess it depends on the HPU thieves).

And if you’ve been by there already – you know this has nothing to do with “plums,” and “everything to do with sandwiches and salads.” And I guess $10 for a burger, plus fries and a drink is a pretty fair deal indeed.

Prime Cycle

Prime Cycle – Hoboken, NJ – 1025 Maxwell Lane

Opening up the first week of September over at Maxwell Place is Prime Cycle.

What is Prime Cycle anyway?

“Prime Cycle is an indoor cycling studio equipped with 40 Schwinn AC Performance Plus Bikes with Performance iQ.

We offer private men’s and women’s bathrooms and showers and also sell fitness equipment and apparel.

And for parents, we offer child care services monitored by state/CPR certified babysitters.”

Side note: There must be tens of thousands “cycling studios” across the nation. Why is it that no one has thought of a way to use all this expended energy to pump electricity back into the grid? Every little bit helps, doesn’t it?
