Halloween DWI Checkpoint

Halloween DWI Checkpoint in Hoboken

Thinking of coming to Hoboken next Friday in your fruity costume? Plan on getting loaded and driving around? Well you might want to think that over – as cops will be on full patrol that night with a Halloween DWI Checkpoint.

Informational pamphlets will be handed out on-site.

Don’t say you weren’t warned!

Entitled Bicyclists

Hoboken brimming with Entitled Bicyclists!

Entitled bicyclists in Hoboken don’t just ride the wrong way, or nearly run over pedestrians on the sidewalk. Nope.

They also lock these fruity contraptions to the front of people’s homes – and prevent access to the gated areas, as one resident tried to reason with the moron by leaving a polite note:

2nd Notice: Please do not park your bike here. It prevents access to the front gated area. If you have a problem, call my cell and we can discuss. Thanks. (Adams St. Resident)”

“Please” call my cell? So we can “discuss?” Fuck that! If that was my house, that lock would have been sawed off – and the sign would have said “FREE BIKE. PLEASE TAKE.”

You can’t reason with these people. They’ll unknowingly step all over you. Grow a pair and take matters in your own hands.

Hoboken House Tour 2014

Hoboken House Tour to benefit Historical Museum: October 26th

This Sunday, October 26th from 10am – 4pm, 10 “generous” homeowners will open their doors to visitors as a benefit for the Hoboken Historical Museum. Tour goers will be treated to an array of homes, from Victorian brownstones to contemporary condos, from traditional to modern decor, plus “historic” Stevens family artifacts.

While the homes selected each year change, each tour reflects Hoboken’s rich architectural history, as well as some of the “hottest” new properties in Hoboken. The tour is self-guided and typically takes two hours to visit all the homes, which can be seen in any order at any time throughout the tour hours.

Hoboken Movie Lineup: 10/17/2014

Bow Tie Cinemas Movie Times Hoboken NJ

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesThis weekend’s new movie is called Fury starring Brad Pitt – and it’s essentially about a tank unit in World War II. Sort of along the lines of a much better movie called “Memphis Belle” which came out 23 years ago.

“April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.”

It probably only got “good reviews,” because the “evil Germans” were getting blown up (“war porn”). Our advice if you’re thinking about seeing it? Rent it if you must.

Taco Truck Block Party

Taco Truck celebrates 5 years in Hoboken

Hoboken’s not always about escalating rents and doomed businesses. Here we have our 2nd local shop successfully celebrating their 5th anniversary this month. First it was Hoboken Man, now it’s The Taco Truck! And they’re having a block party to commemorate (and dollar tacos to attract a crowd).

Taco Truck 5th Anniversary Block Party Hoboken NJ

Hoboken Taco Truck holds anniversary block party {FREE BEER}

“The Taco Truck has hit a major milestone! From our humble beginnings as a single food truck 5 years ago to the multi-restaurant concept we are now, we’ve got a lot to celebrate. And we want to share the joy with everyone who has supported us in our mission to share the taco love with the world.

Join us this Friday, October 17th, from 6pm to 9pm on Newark Street between Hudson and Washington Streets for a night of dollar tacos, beer, music, live painting, and a mural auction for a good cause! (MAP).

Our truck will be there selling all the dollar tacos you can eat, and beer will be complimentary (“pay what you’d like”) with all proceeds benefiting TRUE Mentors and the Hoboken Shelter. A DJ will be spinning tunes, along with live painters, Blair Urban and Tanya Gomelskaya, will be creating murals to be auctioned off at the end of the night. Fifty percent of mural proceeds will also go to our charities.

A special thanks to Freshly Baked Gallery in Jersey City for helping us make this night possible. Let’s party!”
