There is a another website in Hoboken that is claiming to be the “Real Leprecon” with the URL http://hobokenleprecon.com for the upcoming March 3rd Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day celebration. They state on their website:
“We are the original and only Leprecon. Beware of imitations trying to sell t-shirts that promise you deals that they don’t even list. Click on the link that says bars on the right for a list of specials and deals.”
The supposed “Real Leprechaun” event has only 1,040 RSVPs as of this morning vs. over 17,100 for the Hoboken Lepre-con 2012 event (highlighted below) which contrary to claims by them has bars listed on their website as well. TheBoken.com leaves it up to the readers to decide what deal is best for them or to just show up. TheBoken.com is not in any way compensated for these events and is just reporting what is presented. If you are planning to just go to one bar your best bet is probably just to pay cover and stay put. Bar hopping can only mean waiting in line for a good portion of the day based on past turnout. However , if you are determined to hop around these could be of use if you like the establishments. Expect the potential for cover charges to vary based on perceived demand and adjusted by the bar owners on the fly.

Hoboken Lepre-con 2012 – Almost 17,100 as of 2/29/2011
This was the first event that came to TheBoken.com’s attention. It has the largest number of followers and a good amount of bars that are participating. The period for online t-shirts is over but even if you dress up well enough as a Leprechaun these deals may still apply to you.

These are the two main options for “bar crawls” that TheBoken.com knows about. Whether they are worth it or not is up to you but if you want to celebrate in a bar for a good portion of the day, TheBoken.com does advise revelers to get in line early well before 11 am and pick a spot and stay there. As a general rule of thumb the uptown bars tend to be less packed than the downtown ones. Otherwise, you best bet is to stay at home and sip a few pints with friends. TheBoken.com will be out and about wearing one of these t-shirts shown below on March 3rd covering the festivities. You might hear me say “All I got for Hoboken St. Patrick’s is this t-shirt” but hopefully will have some fun memories and videos of street activity to share without all the chaos. We will have to wait and see what happens. Rain is forecast for Saturday. It could dampen turnout.
