Hoboken Events Committee Plans “The Cauldron” Roman Numeral Sculpture as Superbowl XLVIII Attraction with New York City Views

The Hoboken Events Committee for the next Superbowl that will be hosted at Met Life Stadium in 2014 lead by Hoboken resident Scott Katz held a meeting last night at his home at Bloomfield Street for the members of the committee.

Last night  Bill LaRosa, Head of the Huddle Country Huddle Zone for the NY/NJ Host Committee attended this meeting and addressed Committee, filling everyone in on the Super Bowl initiative from the Official perspective. Mayor Dawn Zimmer and Freeholder Anthony Romano was also in attendance along with about 50 committee members.

Scott Katz explained the role of the commitee in his email to members before the meeting:

“Since our formation, the Hoboken Events Committee has been working a bit more independently of the Official NY/NJ Host Committee than any other city in New Jersey. The reasons for that were pragmatic, but given our results thus far it was seemingly a chance worth taking.  Our group now has serious credibility and there will be strength in numbers, so I need everybody to show up so he can see first-hand what we have worked so hard to create.

And that segues into what, we, the Hoboken Events Committee, will now need to create—“The Cauldron.”

We have been given permission by the NFL for use of the Roman Numerals to create an iconic “XLVIII,” with the NYC skyline serving as the backdrop. This is a game changer. This is our centerpiece. When I said, “If we build it, they will come,” I meant it. So now we can build it.

What we will be building is an attraction, something that people are going to come seek out. Other cities in NJ will have events—some better than others, some just for the sake of doing something. What we are creating is an attraction, something that is going to make Super Bowl visitors feel a NEED to come to Hoboken Of course there is still a lot of work to be done in order tocreate the cauldron, and eventually Super Bowl Square…”

So the question is, if you build it will they come? TheBoken.com thinks yes. It could be a very big draw for sports  fans to visit Hoboken for a most unique photo op with NYC views.  There are some pretty cool events planned as well but this attraction when built could really be a big boost to Hoboken’s businesses if it is well executed.

Tasteful Tailgating Tips from Chef Anthony Pino

Here are some tasteful tailgating tips for Hoboken Football fans from Chef Anthony Pino of AD Catering | Events, Anthony Davids, Bin 14, and the Kolo Klub…..


Tailgaters have always taken their pre-game drinking seriously, but are now equally serious about their pre-game eats. “You don’t just see the standard burgers and hot dogs at sporting events anymore,” stated Chef Anthony Pino of AD Catering|Events. “As you stroll through the crowds gathered at sporting events these days you will find a wide range of tailgating fare, from specialty cheeses to elaborate lobster and steak dinners.” Chef Pino knows a thing or two about pre-game entertaining; his company AD Catering|Events provides gourmet prepared food for those headed to the local Giants and Jets games at MetLife Stadium, or to those cheering on their teams with friends at home.

A tip Chef Pino offers to those planning to entertain: nothing makes a party better for host and guest alike, than to offer guests delicious items that require minimal hands-on assistance. He also gives a word of advice when prepping for pre-game entertaining. “Know your limits. If you want to have fun and enjoy your guests’ company, plan your menu using food items that can be prepared ahead of time, so all you will need to do is warm and display.”

A smorgasbord of AD Catering Events food

In addition, he and his team based in Hoboken, regularly put together a wide range of options for the local crowd who are off to outdoor events such as The Hunt in Far Hills, NJ, or are simply inspired to enjoy the fall weather and scenery with private picnics and wine tastings. Chef Pino continued, “Customers are ordering take-away platters ranging from the high end – lamb chops, filet, seafood, to the basic – sausage and peppers, sandwiches and cheese, as they head off to their fall festivities.” He smiles as he says, “What goes together better than fresh autumn air and foliage paired with good food and wine?”

For more information about AD Catering | Events call 201.222.8399. Their address is 953 Bloomfield Street Hoboken, NJ 07030.

Super Bowl XLVI–Giants vs. Patriots–TheBoken.com’s Pick and Polls

SuperBowl XLVI logo BW

Tomorrow, Hoboken’s bars and living rooms undoubtedly will be packed for the big game. For the first time in 4 years the NY Giants will be back to the Super Bowl against the same team they played the last time they were there, the New England Patriots. This year, TheBoken.com has been 7-3 in its NFL playoff picks for games played to date. This pick however is the most important one and while NFL games are hard to predict I wanted to give it my best shot. I will try to remove the bias from the fact that I am rooting for the NY Giants. Emotion has a tendency to cloud judgment.

So with that said I reached out to a buddy Dave who is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan and he said “ I would bet a month’s salary on it that the Giants are going to win”. I asked him why and he said the Patriots defense is horrible and that the Giants defense should give Patriot’s QB  Tom Brady a ton of pressure that will make it difficult for them to be consistent offensively. I then added that we have a pretty darn good QB in hometown hero Eli Manning and he agreed that Eli should be able to pick apart the Patriots secondary.

I had initially thought the Patriots should get the slight edge due to Tom Brady’s competitive fire. However one of his main weapons is questionable with the painful high ankle sprain in Rob Gronkowski their TE. I now think the pendulum swings back to the NY Giants even though odds makers have the Patriots as 3 point favorite. Given the Giants surging defense and the questionable nature of Tom Brady’s main weapon I have the Giants winning in a close one by a field goal.

TheBoken.com Prediction: NY Giants 23 NE Patriots 20.

Below is a link to many of the specials in Hoboken for the big game….
