Hoboken411 Christmas Gathering
Tonight from 7-10pm (added an extra hour!) $20 for the wristband.
Here’s what I initially have planned for the food: mini-burgers, mini-quiches, mini-shepards pies, and some pasta w/cream sauce. More food will be added as needed. Will probably have some chicken fingers, too. I had them this week.. pretty tasty.
It’ll be one, possibly both floors of the restaurant depending on outcome. I also may have lots of leftovers.
Here’s another reason to give your liver a break in 2008.
Have a “day before winter” drink
I’ve decided to rent some space at Carpe Diem (14th & Grand – near the viaduct) next Thursday, December 20th, from 7-9pm. Come down, meet 411, and possibly some other readers and (anonymous) posters to share some “holiday drinks” in a comfortable, warm drinking venue while we celebrate the official start of winter. It’ll be open bar for a couple hours ($20 for a wristband), and will include a few food selections (still to be determined – but I’m shooting for mini-burgers).
I’ve never thrown any kind of organized event, so I have no real clue what I’m doing. Ever since one of my ex’s pissed me off while breaking the bank spending 2 grand on fondue makers and furniture (just for a Super Bowl party?) I’ve been more of an impromptu kind of guy who plays everything by ear.
Regardless, if you don’t have an office party to attend, and you’re in Hoboken, please come by and put a face to a name. Maybe I’ll have some kind of contests, (like whomever has the highest score after three darts wins a Spa H gift certificate or something.) Not sure yet. I’m a “behind the scenes” person, so I’ll pretty much screw this up royally.
If you haven’t been to Carpe Diem yet, here’s a good reason. Hope to meet some of you next week!
