Tim Tebow to Live in Hoboken–Let the Tebowing Begin!

Filed under: Hoboken,Hoboken Celebrity,NY Jets,Sports — Tags: , , , , , , — TheBoken @ 7:10 PM

Tim Tebow on Washington Street

It has finally being reported from a legitimate news source that NFL QB Tim Tebow is indeed moving to Hoboken now that he has been traded to the NY Jets from the Denver Broncos. The NY Post is reporting that Tebow has signed a lease to rent a two-bedroom pad at 2 Constitution Court, a 13-story luxury condo building overlooking the New York skyline in uptown Hoboken. Eli Manning, two time Super Bowl winning QB for the NY Giants who lives in the Hudson Tea Building with his wife will now be neighbors with Tim. Hoboken now sure has its fair share of NFL quarterbacks.

Snooki to Film Jersey Shore Spinoff in Jersey City

Photo by www.now110fm.radio-com

Fox News is reporting that Hoboken’s loss is Jersey City’s gain, at least from the point of view of fans of “The Jersey Shore.” Here is their brief note:

“The producers of a spin-off of the MTV hit starring Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “J-WOWW” Farley obtained filming permits from Jersey City officials and signed deals with local bar and restaurant owners, Fox 5′s John Huddy reported.

Recently, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer rejected a request by the production company, 495 Productions, to shoot the show in her city, citing a need to protect “public safety and quality of life concerns for Hoboken residents.”

She also warned 495 Productions and MTV that Hoboken would not tolerate unauthorized shooting.”

Video of FOX 5 News Report:

‘Jersey Shore’ Spin-Off in Jersey City: MyFoxNY.com

Keeping it in Perspective:  Previously, TheBoken.com readers had overwhelmingly stated that they did not think that this was a good idea to have Snooki and JWoww film in Hoboken with results shown to the right. In fact almost 83% said they did not think it was a good idea. The Mayor also did her own poll via twitter and she received an overwhelming plurality against the filming as well in her poll too. MTV was normally expects to film 24-7 which is against Hoboken’s ordinance  on filming in the City does not allow for filming after 11pm.

Snooki on Good Morning America: We Still Love Hoboken


Snooki and JWoww were on Good Morning America this morning addressing the Snooki pregnancy rumors (she’s not and doesn’t appreciate being called fat) and talking about Hoboken. Snooki did state that she was disappointed that Mayor Dawn Zimmer didn’t sit down and meet her before making a decision, but expressed her continued love for Hoboken.  Snooki said it’s Hoboken’s loss and they are looking for a town that wants them to shoot the spinoff of the Jersey Shore.

The Hoboken discussion starts 2 minutes into the video. Check it out below….

Mayor Zimmer May Have Knocked Out Snooki But Snooki Not “Knocked Up”

Filed under: Hoboken Celebrity — Tags: , , — TheBoken @ 12:40 PM

Take a deep breath people, it is not the Mayan Prophecy or Armageddon Snooki is not pregnant, with child, “knocked up” as previously reported on multiple media outlets. The human gene pool is at least safe for a little while longer. Just kidding. TheBoken.comdoes not want to come accross as mean spirited so please take it as only a joke. Here is an excerpt from E- Online on the rumor:

“So false!

Snooki’s rep tells E! News that there is no truth to the rumors and that the MTV star is not pregnant.

The tabloid seemed to pin the rumor on the fact that Snooki was telling friends she had a “big announcement” coming soon. Well, it seems like her baby may have been simply of the professional variety, possibly to do with her Jersey Shore spinoff with pal JWoww.”

Link to E-online Story: http://www.eonline.com/news/true_false_jersey_shores_snooki_really/290836

Now to the punchline: Hoboken Mayor Danw Zimmer may have knocked Snooki out from filming in Hoboken but Snooki is certainly not knocked up (for now).

Hoboken Celebrity Watch: The Most Interesting Man in the World is in Hoboken!

Filed under: Beer,Hoboken,Hoboken Celebrity — Tags: , — TheBoken @ 2:30 PM


Many know that Hoboken is one of the main destinations in New Jersey for celebrities. We have had Kim Kardashian, our own Buddy Valastro aka “The Cake Boss”, Eli Manning and many other sports stars visiting the Mile Square  thanks  to the W Hotel. Now “The most interesting man in the world” made famous by those clever Dos  Equis beer commercials has made an appearance in Hoboken.

Well, not exactly, just a cardboard facsimile. TheBoken ran into this lucky gentlemen on Washington Street yesterday who had asked an uptown liquor store if he could have the cardboard cutout. The liquor store was done with the promo so they gave it to him free of charge. He said he was trying to get it home before it got damaged. I’m am sure this will be an interesting prop at this guy’s next house party. “Stay thirsty my friends”.

Below is a a compilation on YouTube of his commercials. Given his amazing and varied list of accomplishments it makes most of us feel like our lives are indeed quite pedestrian:

Adam Wade – Hoboken Comedian and Story Teller on Anger at Shoprite

Filed under: Comedy Hoboken,Hoboken Celebrity — Tags: , — TheBoken @ 10:00 AM

Adam WadeHoboken resident and funny man Adam Wade mainly performs in NYC when local but here is a story that he tells with a great sense of humor and pathos about his encounter at the Shoprite deli counter in Hoboken. In this story Adam lets his anger get the best of him when he puts his proverbial foot in his mouth not understanding why he is not the top priority for his roast beef after being next in line. His story is done in true Adam Wade fashion mixing anxiety, old and new Hoboken behavioral traits and above all a very human and vulnerable persona that many of us can relate to. The angst, the guilt along with Adam’s own unique way of telling a story make this video clip worth a gander.

This story won him an award in a story telling contest about anger back in April of 2011. For more videos of Adam Wade doing what he does best (tell stories) go to: http://www.youtube.com/user/AdamWadeStoryteller
