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.

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.

Through implementation of this, and similar events – the Hoboken Police Department hopes to significantly reduce accidents, injuries and property damage throughout our city. Informational pamphlets will be handed out on-site.

The Hoboken Police Department is committed to working hand in hand with the citizens of Hoboken to provide a safe environment for the motoring public.”

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.
