Hudson Taven to Host Special “Guest” DJ – DJ Kurt This Friday and Saturday and Next Weekend as well – November 15,16, 22 and 23

Filed under: Bars,bars and nightlife,Hoboken — Tags: , , , , , , — TheBoken @ 10:00 AM

DJ-Kurt-with-phrase

Hudson Tavern, located at the corner of 14th and Hudson in Hoboken will be hosting special “Guest” DJ – DJ Kurt This Friday and Saturday and next weekend as well – November 15,16, 22 and 23. As editor of TheBoken.com I will shed my behind the scenes persona and lead the music at the Hudson Tavern while the bartenders focus on making the drinks. As a DJ in his 40s I have an both a popular and eclectic range of musical possibilities from rock, pop, good hip hop (the danceable kind), dance classics, new dance, and even some country thrown in to keep you guessing. I try to read the crowd and switch things up quite frequently to keep em’ guessing.

Spread the word and let the party begin. I will start approximately at 10:30-11pm all nights and play till close. I have had positive feedback with my guest gigs and enjoy doing this as yet another one of my hobbies. The nice thing about the Hudson Tavern is the wide range of ages that frequent the bar. It makes for a challenge to keep most people interested in the music. Leave your requests in the comments and I will do my best to accommodate.

For my gigs I plug into the house sound system from the corner part of the bar on 14th street with my iPad and the app DJay 2 shown below…..

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 www.hobokentrinity.com 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 (http://just2iconic.com/) 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.

At the site of the former club Lana, this new club will try to make a go of it. They are having Open Call Wednesday March 13th and Thursday March 14th to fill all sorts of positions. This place should give clubs like Room 84 and 200 Lounge a bit of competition given its proximity to the PATH and parking garages..

Hoboken Leprecon 2013 Photo and Video Highlights

Hoboken Leprecon 2013

Here are some photos and a short video of goings on in downtown Hoboken today for Hoboken’s second annual Lepre-con or Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day. The guys in the above photo were great sports and I found the crowd generally to be better behaved (relatively speaking) and smaller than last year. There are some drunk people for sure but nowhere near as bad as two years ago when there was a parade. Of course there still is plenty of time for more incidents but my gut reaction is this will be even calmer than last year. That is not a bad thing for Hoboken. Parents were out doing bake sales with their kids so that is usually a pretty good indicator. Here is hoping for a safe conclusion of events tonight. TheBoken.com would like to thanks the many nice revelers who asked to have their photo taken. Thanks for your support in making this a fun event so far.

More on Hoboken’s 2nd Annual Lepre-con 2013

Sullivans Leprecon 2013

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.

Sullivans Leprecon 2013 sign

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:

Leprecon: https://www.facebook.com/events/165611956882636

Lepre-con: https://www.facebook.com/events/401946573226448/

Here is the exchange one of the organizers had with Hoboken Girl Blog (www.hobokengirl.com):

Leprecon Twitter War 2013

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.
