Here is another round of Bars in Hoboken and what they are doing for Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day or Lepre-con 2013 tomorrow Saturday March 2, 2013. Sullivan’s at 6th and Washington Street is opening at 10am and always attracts its share of Irish revelers on the first Saturday of March in Hoboken, parade or no parade.
Important Note: TheBoken.com is aware that there are two competing Lepre-con organizers each claiming to be the official Lepre-con this year as well as last year.There has been an exchange over who is the copycat and it is none too pretty. We at the Boken state this so as to let the buyer beware until these organizers can come to a mutual understanding. The bars downtown will likely fill up early so we think the best bet is to either get to your downtown destination early or head uptown for a more low key celebration where you are likely to find a place to each and drink in Hoboken responsibly.
For reference the two competing Leprecon’s or Lepre-con’s on Facebook are:
Here is the exchange one of the organizers had with Hoboken Girl Blog (www.hobokengirl.com):
The bottom line is that there is no official Lepre-con until these two parties can get together and consolidate. Best bet is to go to your favorite bar and get there very early if you must celebrate there.
The Turtle Club located at 936 Park Avenue will open their doors at 11am. The first 100 people will get in free with no cover. DJ Ralph Monte will provide the music to keep the party going.
The Shannon at 106 1st Street in Hoboken will open at Saturday 11 am. Correction: TheBoken.com had originally posted 8am on their Facebook page but they have confirmed they are opening at 11am. They posted this message on Facebook:
“Help Hoboken Heal! Super Storm Sandy hit Hoboken residents and businesses very hard and many are still feeling the effects. Hoboken is still the great city we all love. Let’s invite our friends and family to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and show everyone what a great place Hoboken is! Shop, dine and drink in Hoboken to support local businesses!
Please remember to be respectful of everyone and their property. If you drink, please drink responsibly!”
Ash Fine Cigars located at 203 Washington Street will be selling the limited release Filthy Hooligan Cigar made by Alec Bradley in a non-alcoholic offering that has Irish flair. Is it just me or is something labeled Black Market intrinsically cooler than other products?
And the Elsyian Café at 10th and Washington Street is open under normal hours but not in anyway participating in Lepre-con. Some restaurants are simply opting out to reward their loyal customers.
