Smokeless Image to become AltSmoke in Hoboken, NJ

For those of you that were wondering if the electronic cigarette store at 8th & Washington was doomed, fear not. Smokeless Image is re-branding into an AltSmoke store.

Construction has been going on for a few weeks, and is expected to be done very soon.

The store is under the same ownership. Apparently the old name must have had too many syllables. If “AltSmoke” also falters, we hear the next name on the list will simply be “Puff.”

the Yoga loft

the Yoga loft – Hoboken, NJ – 51 Harrison Street

Did you know there’s a new yoga studio in town? Yep – the Yoga loft operates out of 51 Harrison Street in the SW corner of Hoboken.

Located on the 5th Floor and billed as “Hoboken’s most beautiful Yoga studio,” the Yoga loft is run by owner Jessica Lynn, who has practiced yoga for over 10 years. Registered with the Yoga Alliance, she has a diverse background which includes teaching in the U.S. and South America, public school systems and even orphanages and institutions of higher learning. Also a Reiki practitioner, Jessica abides by the “mantra of believing in humanity and kindness.” A perfect qualification for yoga if you ask us!

Open 7 days a week, the Yoga loft offers classes for everyone

The Yoga loft studio has classes seven days a week, including early morning “sunrise” routines, basic instruction, core exercises, Vinyasa, meditiation and even classes for toddlers.

Drop in rate for classes is $18, and unlimited monthly memberships can be had starting at just $98 per month. Sounds very fairly priced compared to other exceptionally high-priced fitness places in Hoboken.

Maxwell’s Tavern {Pizza}

Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken – will you try it out?

Opening this week is the “revamped” Maxwell’s Tavern at 11th & Washington.

Traditionalists we know will not visit the new location, mainly because of the sacrilegious name-glomming, the lack of “cool bands,” and the potential it has to become a stroller mecca.

While others, who also loved the old Maxwell’s, will give it a shot – primarily because the former owners of Maxwell’s didn’t really keep the place up. Was essentially a “dive” for all intents and purposes.

We’ll see how they fare. If they provide quality food, fair prices and a comfortable environment (along with a NON-snobby staff – very important), they’ll do just fine!

(One thing we did notice was the signs on the exterior were a smidge obnoxious, large…)

Jonathan Marx Opticians

Jonathan Marx Opticians doomed in Hoboken

Less than three years after opening, Jonathan Marx Opticians has abandoned ship at 1212 Washington Street.

This is interesting however, because the official Optometrist (Dr. Lui) is also involved with Hoboken Eye Shoppe over on Newark Street, as well as the long-gone Hoboken Optical at 410 Washington (“musical eye sockets?)

I suppose the carrying costs with having so many locations and only one on-call doctor wasn’t financially sustainable. And with plenty of other established “optical” places in Hoboken already (Wise Vision & Hearing downtown, EyeSite uptown, etc.) combined with the relatively low-frequency of needing such services – the market decided who could survive.

Wonder what will come next to this spot? Baby yoga?
