Restaurant owner Eugene Flinn has been hard at work getting his third establishment in Hoboken ready for the anticipated throngs of stroller moms and their active kids with his renovation of Schnackeberg’s at 1110 Washington Street. The venerable luncheonette is getting a makeover from the owner of Amanda’s and the Elysian Café and this sign renovation is just part of the overall process. The sheetrock is now up so its is likely just a few weeks to a month before this reborn place is open to the public. In the meantime this classic Hoboken sign gets preserved for at least another generation.
Here is a way to enjoy some select Hoboken eateries and participate in a fundraiser for a good cause this Wednesday in Hoboken….
