Relay For Life is a group designed to create awareness and raise money through donations to aide the American Cancer Society in its mission to find a cure, assist those who have been touched by cancer, and empower individuals to fight back. We celebrate life, friendship and a chance to work together toward a cancer-free future. By joining together as volunteers and donors, our efforts help the American Cancer Society strive toward a future where cancer doesn’t take the lives of our friends and family.

The ticket for the event includes delicious passed and stationed appetizers provided by Hoboken Gourmet Company with deserts donated by local bakeries including Carlo’s and Craft beer and an extensive wine selection from the Kolo Klub.

True Mentors is a “one to one” mentoring program here in Hoboken for kids seven to seventeen years old, and is sort of like a valuable “assist” to parents in town. Classes, programs, internships – all to allow kids to find added dimension to their lives and strengthen natural talents.

And they’re having a fundraiser this Saturday, November 1st over at the Kolo Klub, featuring The Herreras – a group of talented musicians whose passion for music has no limits or boundaries.

“The Herreras strive to provide exceptional entertainment by doing what they love to do best; playing with heart and soul. And on November 1st, they will be playing their hearts out for a great cause; TRUE Mentors. Join us for an evening of music and merriment.”

Hoboken Movie Lineup: 10/24/2014

Bow Tie Cinemas Movie Times Hoboken NJ

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesYou have two choice for “new” movies this weekend. A boiler-plate horror flick in Ouija (not recommended) and a charming movie starring Bill Murray called St. Vincent.

“Maggie (McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver (Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine – the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.”

I think overall – it’s definitely a “feel good” type of movie. And with one of the best actors around (IMO), Bill Murray absolutely makes the film. Actors of his stature are diminishing rapidly. Not quite sure I can explain what that means, but see it, or rent it in a few months. I can bet you’ll enjoy this movie (despite the over-cast Melissa McCarthy).

FBW Annual Fundrasier

Fund for a Better Waterfront (FBW) Fundraiser

If you had to “thank” any particular entity for the way the Hoboken waterfront looks today – it wouldn’t be any politician. It would be the Fund for a Better Waterfront. Their efforts over the past couple decades has “saved” Hoboken from becoming worse than it is already. Just imagine the already dismal parks and open-space situation with even less “green.” Yeah, it could have been that bad.

The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is holding their annual fundraiser tonight at the Hoboken Elks Lodge.

Saturday Brunch Party

10th & Willow hosts Saturday Brunch Party in Hoboken

As with most restaurants in Hoboken, a weekend “brunch” is nothing more than a special menu offering. But how many places market their brunch as a “brunch party?” Only one that I know of – 10th & Willow Bar & Grill.

This Saturday, October 25th from 1pm to 5pm (and once a month through the winter), 10th & Willow is offering up something a little more “super-charged” than an ordinary brunch menu. This is a Saturday Brunch Party, complete with a DJ spinning tunes, and drink specials. Call it a “boozy brunch” if you must. Certainly makes a regular Saturday afternoon a bit more exciting doesn’t it?

In addition to a brunch menu – you get $2 Coors Light on tap, plus $30 Carafes of Mimosas. Be sure to “dress to impress” as a brunch party is NOT meant for people in pajama pants and Ugg slippers. Got that?

Call (201)653-2358 to make reservations and ensure yourself a spot.
