Friday Night Capsules – 8/14/2009


Some short nuggets of miscellany for a Friday night… Witnesses needed for a pedestrian accident last month, free iced coffee on Monday (for a select few) – and a reader-supplied YouTube “blast from the past…

Did you witness this pedestrian accident?

Hoboken Lawyer Thomas LoBue represents the woman who was seriously injured in a car accident on 7/18/2009 at the corner of 14 th Street and Hudson St. (Wasn’t reported here on 411)


She was a pedestrian walking in the crosswalk with the green light at about 12:30 in the afternoon when a Chevy SUV/pickup truck struck her. The truck was making a left turn from Hudson going south and turning east onto 14th. The driver did stop, and gave his information to the police – report filed, etc. Apparently, there were numerous witnesses but none have given the police their information yet.

They are looking for witnesses to this accident as the woman was seriously injured and any eyewitness accounts as to what happened would be greatly appreciated. You can email Thomas at if you’d like to help out.

27 Free Dames Iced Coffees on Monday

happy-birthday-frankie-hoboken-nj-dames-coffee-dogHere’s a peculiar Hoboken happening… Hoboken resident Mykal Altilio wants to celebrate his puppy’s first birthday – and is giving away a free iced coffee at Dames Coffee (307 First Street) or the first 27 customers….

“Hi. On Monday it will be my puppy’s first birthday. Her name is Frankie Consuelo Flora Sinatra. To celebrate I am setting up with Borah, the owner, Tae, and Kim for those who mention “Happy Birthday Frankie” to either of them will get a free small Iced coffee on Monday. Frankie’s picture is on the register.”

When asked why he’s doing this – and why 27 cups of coffee, Mykal said “Frankie has the ability to get many to smile. If one looks at the store front and register, Frankie’s picture can be seen. Guess Frankie can be seen as the “unofficial mascot” for Dames. Why 27? I liked the number. And I think having her in the dress reminded me of a movie called 27 dresses, which I haven’t seen. So basically I just came up with 27.”

Not the first time Socialized Medicine has made news…

Lastly – one Hoboken411 reader thought you might find this YouTube video interesting, and what former President Roland Reagan had to say about it…

I think that instead of giving away Frankie to many, 27 Dames Iced coffees on a supposed hot day would be best to celebrate her birthday.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
