Found Dog – please help!

Found Dog {Weimeraner} Please help locate owner(s)

Found Dog Hoboken NJVery strange “found dog” incident – a purebred too! You’d think there would be an “APB” out for a dog like this – but nothing as of yet!

A young Weimeraner was found on Washington around First Street in Hoboken on July 21st. No collar or microchip, and so far no leads on an owner.

But the dog looks very well cared for (just under a year old).

Jersey City {Project: EATS} Street Festival

Jersey City Project: EATS – Street Festival – July 26th

Jersey City Project Eats July 26 2014Wow – the 2nd “Jersey City Project” event since December! The latest (Hudson County) community event is taking place in downtown Jersey City behind City Hall (280 Grove Street – map) and is called “Project Eats.”

Billed as “A food-centric marketplace celebrating warm days, cool drinks and delicious eats.”

Definitely a more culturally diverse alternative to the “tired” St. Ann’s Feast here in Hoboken. The business culture in Jersey City sure is setting a great example for Hoboken to “follow” (but of course we’d need competent and enabling “governance,” so don’t hold your breath…)

This one day event has TWO farmers’ market tents, THREE bars to wet your whistle, 10 food trucks and over 30 food vendors. Sounds like a blast and well worth a cab ride there (especially if you plan on “tying one on!”)

Have fun and cross your fingers for decent weather!

Jersey City Brew Club “walking beer tour”

Jersey City Brew Club Summer Walking Beer Tour – July 26

Home Brew Jersey City Walking Beer TourHere’s a rather unusual “event” taking place this Saturday, July 26th: The Jersey City Brew Club Summer Walking Beer Tour.

“Curious to see local homebrewers’ setups? Take an afternoon tour of Hoboken and Jersey City, visiting home breweries and sampling homebrewed beer. After the tour, head home or stay late to join us at a Jersey City bar! Homebrewers and curious beer lovers both welcome!

This tour will include 4 stops in Hoboken and Jersey City, with multiple samples of homebrewed beer and snacks at each stop. The ticket also includes a one-way ticket on the Light Rail.

You meet at Johnny Pepperoni in Hoboken (11th & Park) and eventually meander your way over to White Star Bar in Jersey City.

Note: This is a walking tour, taking 5-20 minutes between stops. Please wear appropriate footwear. Also, please come with a full stomach to offset all the beer!

Get tickets here ($32 a pop).

411 Take: While the cost might seem a bit steep to ordinary folks, it still is a unique “experience” to say the least. I suppose it will interest those who are starting to become “home brew” aficionados even more so. You know, this is one of those “hobbies” that turns some people into “fanatics” about their craft over time.

6th Borough Market – Jersey City

6th Borough Market in Jersey City continues in 2014

In case you wanted to stretch your boundaries beyond your Four Block Radius in Hoboken – you might be interested in the 6th Borough Market just steps away in Jersey City.

Started for the season back in May, it runs for four more dates – this Sunday, July 20th, then August 10th, September 14th and October 19th.

6th Borough Market Jersey City NJ 2014

What is the 6th Borough Market anyway?

Almost like the Garden Street Farmers Market, but bigger – The 6th Borough Market is a weekend market in Jersey City (behind city hall – Montgomery & Marin) which features arts & crafts, “highly curated” vintage items, various food vendors and kiddie activities. You can taste Milk Sugar Love too, while you’re at it!

Another good reason to visit, is so you can get your java fix from The Mod Cup Coffee guys, who seem hard to find these days. Worth the trip alone!

Have fun!
