Update:Hoboken Leprecon 2013 – Here we go again with Dueling Leprecons – March 2, 2103
For 2013, Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day will be on the First Saturday of March, March 2, 2013. This will be the second year of Leprecon when the Hoboken Parade was cancelled or not held due to Public Safety concerns. Last year Leprecon was largely a downtown affair on certainly less populated than when the parade was last held in 2010. Will this year be even bigger? Stay tuned. TheBoken.com will provide coverage.
What’s in a name or hyphen? It appears that there are two versions of this event in Hoboken for Saturday March 2, 2013 on Facebook:
1) Link to Hoboken LepreCon 2013 Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/165611956882636/ (Over 5400 RSVPs as of 3/1/2013)
This Leprecon includes the following bars: Teak, Hotel Victor Bar and Willie McBrides.
Hoboken Lepre-con 2013 also has a link: https://www.facebook.com/events/401946573226448 (Over 2100 RSVPs as of 3/1/2013)
This Lepre-con has a hyphen. They have the following bars listed: Scotland Yard, Room 84, Liberty Bar, Four L’s, Trinity, Black Bear, Bahama Mama’s and Cooper’s Union.
They both claim to by the official Leprecon but there can only be one official Leprecon. Perhaps they will stop the name calling and consolidate. In the meantime: may the best Leprecon win! TheBoken.com is staying neutral on this one.
