Wyne and Dyne YMCA Fundraiser at Amanda’s September 10th 6pm Featuring Natalie Morales

Wyne and Dyne Amandas YMCA Benefit Amandas Hoboken 9-10-2012


There is a benefit for the YMCA featuring Natalie Morales of NBC’s Today Show at Amanda’s Restaurant Monday September 10th. Below is a note from President Paul Somerville about this important fundraiser.

Dear Friends & Neighbors:

As many of you know, the construction of 91 low-income housing units at the Hoboken-North Hudson YMCA is well underway – great news for individuals who are not as well off as many of us are in this community.

Starting with an open-bar cocktail hour at 6pm on Monday evening, 9/10/12, the Y will be holding a benefit to support its important ongoing services to the community – the low-income housing project as our first phase and the community center and fitness facility as our second.

Natalie Morales, of NBC’s “Today Show,” is scheduled to be the featured speaker at this WYNE & DYNE event – a four-course tasting menu prepared by Chef Rodney with wine pairings at Amanda’s Restaurant, 908 Washington Street, Hoboken.

Knowing how important it is for the Y to offer housing and plan for the future of our community center and fitness facility, The Board of Directors hopes you’ll join other caring friends and neighbors at what promises to be an uplifting evening. Seating is limited and you may pay by check at the door or through www.brownpapertickets.org/event/268078 A portion of your ticket price is tax deductible.

Thanks for your ongoing support.


Paul J. Somerville

President, Board of Directors

Hoboken-North Hudson YMCA

Valentine’s Day on Washington Street in Hoboken

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and some of you might be contemplating what to get that special Hoboken someone. Trekking down Washington Street recently, I found a variety of Hoboken reds, jewels, sweets, and designer duds to please even the pickiest of valentines.

Here are some ideas to get you started, depending on which type of Valentine you are dealing with:

1.    The Sentimental/Traditional Valentine:

Some traditional yet trendy heart Shaped Earrings from Townhouse 620 might do the trick.

Townhouse 620 Earrings

Compliment those with some chocolates from the Garden of Eden, but make sure they’re in a cute box like these:

Carlo’s Bakery also boasts some lavish cakes, Italian desserts, and of course, chocolate dipped strawberries.

2. The Friends with Benefits Valentine:

Want to go the flower route but feel like it might be a little soon? Try these nontraditional flowers…they’re actually red underwear, rolled up in a ball in the shape of flowers. Found at YES I DO!

3. The “It’s Kind of Serious” Valentine:

Some hot dinner spots to treat this type of Valentine to include Anthony Davids for delicious food or Augustinos on 11th & Washington, a little Italian gem of a place – or perhaps some wine tasting and apps at Bin 14 or Amanda’s.

For added bonus gifts, please refer to #1.

4.  The Live-In Valentine

Perhaps you are sharing living space with your valentine…what better than an adorable apron from Ricky’s on Washington so your valentine can look super chic while cooking? Or you could wear it yourself as a surprise and cook a fabulous dinner for two.

For all of the snail mail goes in and out of your shared abode: a Monogram maker from YES I DO.

5. The Pet-Loving Valentine

Find your way to your Valentine’s heart than through a puppy jacket from Hoboken Pets on Washington.

Or treat your valentine’s pooch to a cleaning at the Hoboken Dog Wash on 4th Street!

6. Fashionista Valentine:

As a fellow fashion enthusiast, another option is to treat her to some designer deals at the recently relocated (just upstairs!) Midtown Authentic, where you’ll find purses galore! Check out the store’s new purse wall and rooms chock full of designer finds.

Also for the fashion-conscious: Iconic Fashion Lounge has some adorable Rebecca Minckoff bags in various color pops. My favorite is the bold blue.

8. The Stressed Out Valentine

For the valentine that works hard all day long, a massage treat at Bliss or Massage Envy. Reap the benefits of your gift with a couples’ massage to boot.

Or,  perhaps a mani/pedi gift certificate to one of the many nail salons around Hoboken. My favorites include Bloom and the Nail Bar.

9. The Single Girl/Friend Valentine:

Recent breakup revenge can be found with an Ex Voodoo Doll from YES I DO! on Washington Street.

Or spend a girls night out at the Melting Pot – lots of fondue!

10. The Alternative Valentine

For off-the-beaten-path ideas, sign up for a healthy cooking class with Healthy Hoboken Girl or a cake decorating session at Carlo’s Lackawanna Factory.

Sewing classes for the thread-challenged or crafty alike at M Avery Designs, and another unconventional gift: a certificate to Hoboken Car Wash – a complete detailing will surely make your valentine forget about how difficult parking can be at times with a sparkly wash and shine.

Regardless of the type of Valentine cupid is shooting down for you this season, be sure to treat him/her well. There are endless amounts of treats and experiences that can be found in the Mile Square City…only a few days left, so get to it!
