Third Annual Hoboken Guards Pub Crawl and Hurler Auction on Saturday, April 20th at 4 pm Starting at Willie McBrides

Discover Ireland’s national sport – Hurling – enjoy live Irish music,  make new friends, enjoy great drink specials, free food and enter to win a three-tiered cash raffle ($500/$300/$100) at the third annual Hoboken Guards Pub Crawl and Hurler Auction on Saturday, April 20, 4 pm till whenever starting at Willie McBride’s.

Hoboken Hurling - Athletes for Auction 2013

Ladies and gentlemen who enjoy having a good time (or “craic” in Irish) are encouraged to attend this preseason kickoff fundraiser for the Hoboken Guards Hurling Club, a third year sporting & social organization which serves as a gateway to true Irish culture.

Pub Crawl Destinations:

Featured Event:  Live Hurler Auction

Highlighting the event will be Win a Date with a Hurler Auction, to commence in the Shannon at 7:15 pm on April 20th. The single hurlers on the Hoboken Guards, who range in age from 23 to 37, will be auctioned off set to music, each with a gift certificate to a Hoboken or NYC restaurant. The winning bid for each hurler gives the lady the gift certificate…whether she brings our lad or her friend or father is up to her!

  • Cost to attend the event is a $10 bracelet and allows for discounted drink specials (to be announced on our Facebook event page) and food at Mulligans.
  • A three-piece trad session band is included in the event and will follow the sporting tribe to all three bar locations.
  • Attendees can purchase the bracelet at sponsoring bars.

Have a question about this event? Post it to their Facebook page, or email: When you sign up to attend the event on Facebook, feel free to invite friends!

“Each of the past two Hoboken Guards Pub Crawl and Hurler Auctions drew more than 100 people apiece, and we hope to have an even larger crowd next Saturday,” said club chairman and co-founder, David Cosgrove. “This is Hoboken’s home team, which plays the best sport on earth, whether Hoboken residents know it or not. Hoboken residents (of age), male and female, are encouraged to come meet out our athletes, learn about this great game which is growing in popularity throughout the United States.”

Fellow co-founder Conor Costigan said the event is critical to the operating of the club, as the funds raised from the auction, wrist bands and raffle typically covers much of the operating costs the Guards for the season. These costs includes league insurance, equipment, field usage/training,  and transportation.

“Most importantly, it’s a great time, a chance to meet new people, and to support your local club,” said Costigan, whose wife Elisha will masterfully MC the auction once again. The two have lived in Hoboken for several years. “GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) clubs thrive in every community in Ireland, and we’ve successfully built our own GAA club here in Hoboken,” added Costigan. “The residents of Hoboken make this event a success so we hope you will join us.”

Training: With the Guards having been granted their first training facility within Hoboken – which is expected to open at 1600 Park – the Hoboken Guards encourage athletes of all stripes to come train with the team on Monday nights at 7 pm starting April 22nd pending availability. The Guards will train Monday nights 7-9 p.m. between the anticipated opening until the end of August at the new facility as they await the finishing of Sinatra Field on the Hudson River (which is expected to be their primary training facility upon its opening in September).

The Hoboken Guards are Recruiting: The Guards are also seeking both male and female new recruits, begin training for the 2013 NYGAA Junior Hurling  Championship season which runs June through the end of August in Manhattan  College, 238th St., Riverdale (Bronx) NY. Check for the 2013 season  schedule, which will be released shortly.

The group hopes to see you Saturday, April 20th, 4 pm at Willie McBride’s!

Trinity Customer Night A Success – Hoboken 411 loses over 4,000 Twitter Followers in 2 Days

Trinity Customer Appreciation Night 4-11-2013 smaller

Last night Trinity in Hoboken held a customer appreciation night on April 11, 2013. The background behind this was that in late March Hoboken 411 posted on his website that Trinity was closing and would become an Italian restaurant. Kevin Cocca who is one of the owners has attempted to contact Hoboken411 the next day to get the facts corrected as Trinity has no plans of closing or selling to Italian restauranteurs. Kevin remarked that false information like that was detrimental to their business and they spent time assuring both staff and patrons they were not closing. A week later Hoboken411 finally pulled the post when a letter from Trinity’s attorney was sent. The negative behavior on the part of Hoboken 411 prompted Trinity Management to do something positive by hosting  a customer appreciation night on 4-11 which was very well attended with over 100-125 people in the main bar area alone. Several people spoke to said they no longer read Hoboken411 due to the personal attacks and negativity. As editor I was more than happy to pass out my website’s business cards.

Congratulations to Trinity for standing up to the misinformation of Hoboken411 and the smearing petty posts of Perry Klaussen. It is the hope of that other businesses take Trinity’s lead and do the same. Hoboken businesses should not be bullied by bitter bloggers but rather supported by websites such as and others that have a positive view of Hoboken.

Here is the best part in my humble opinion. In the last two days, Hoboken411 has lost over 4,000 Twitter followers. According to TwitSprout Hoboken411 is hemorrhaging Twitter followers. I have my doubts as to those followers being real in the first place as they were likely paid for but that is a great example of  karma doing its own thing. See the heavy bleeding below in rejoice that in some small way justice is being served….

Hoboken 411 loses over 4000 Twitter followers in 2 days!

On Thursday Hoboken411 lost 2,636 Twitter followers and so far today that website has lost 1,589 and counting. Again, I doubt many of them were real followers in the first place but this plummet in followers certainly is. It could not happen to a nicer guy.

Trinity Customer Appreciation Night in Hoboken – Thursday April 11 7pm till close – Owner Stands up To Hoboken411 Misinformation

Tinity Customer Appreciation Night 4-11-2013

Trinity Restaurant Bar and Lounge, located at 306 Sinatra Drive in Hoboken wants to thank their loyal customers with a Customer Appreciation Night this Thursday April 11 from 7pm to 2am. Despite rumors fabricated by the slipshod journalism of Perry Klaussen who erroneously stated they were closing on March 22nd on his rapidly declining smear blog Hoboken411, the owners of  Trinity are indeed in business and wanted to take a positive spin on this.  The result is a customer appreciation night. Here is their statement below:

“Trinity wants to thank you for your continued support by hosting Customer Appreciation Night on 4/11. From 7pm to close there will be 2-for-1 on all drinks, free appetizers from 7-8pm, and raffles to win a NY Yankees jersey and Yankees tickets.  Check out to join our mailing list and receive exclusive discounts, and stay tuned to our Facebook page for more updates.

Looking forward to seeing you there! Slainte!”

There will be a DJ, DJ Wilchildex from Iconic Media ( and food and drink specials as well as raffle so the night promises to be fun. Show Hoboken411 who little credibility he has left by showing up and supporting a local business that is finally standing up to his tyranny of misinformation.
