Hoboken Photo of the Day: Mikie Squared Bar and Grill

Mikie Squared Bar Hoboken HDR Winter 2013

Located between 6th and 7th Streets on Washington Street Hoboken, Mikie Squared is a popular midtown bar with pretty good bar fare to boot as well as a decent selection of beers. They have daily specials but Sangria Sundays are a crowd favorite come springtime. This successful Hoboken business thus gets a shout out in our Hoboken photo of the day series.

Hoboken Girl’s Guide to Healthy Hoboken Eating

With spring fast approaching, it’s time to come out of Hoboken hibernation and get fit and ready for the warmer weather. There are a large variety of eateries and bars, and it can sometimes be tough to stay healthy while galivanting in Hoboken. So in an effort to help you stay healthy and prep for bathing suit season, I’ve compiled an abbreviated list of places and food menu options for when you’re out and about but still trying to go light…

1. Trinity Bar and Grill:

Portabello Mushroom Wrap – I recently ordered this, it was delicious! The chickpeas (versus a side of fries) are a healthy and lean boost of protein as well.

Blackened Salmon and Avocado Wrap – a yummy and healthy option for a wrap.

*FYI: Avocado contains great nutrients such as vitamin K, potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, and is a wonderful source of antioxidants, lending itself well to the promotion of a healthier cardiovascular system and a skinny waistline. When in doubt- go with avocado! Not to mention it’s delicious.

2. Wicked Wolf:

Grilled Veggie Wrap on Whole Wheat – similar to the popular turkey wrap, but the veggie option. I just can’t get enough sauteed veggies! Yum.

Harvest Pear Salad: Mixed greens topped with grilled chicken breast, blue cheese, dried cranberries and pecans served with balsamic vinaigrette - take my word for it, it’s delicious.

    • FYI: Wicked Wolf’s salads are available with grilled chicken breast, grilled thick sliced steak, grilled shrimp or sauteed shrimp for an additional charge…I’d recommend grilled shrimp or chicken if you’re trying to stay lean.

3. Clinton Social:

Vegetarian Stuffed Pepper: This bad boy contains some delicious flavors (plaintains, red peppers, red pepper coulis, basmati rice), and after taking your first bite, you won’t be able to put it down.

Yellowfin Tuna: Pepper-dusted, wasabi-whipped potatoes, julienned vegetables with a soy-ginger glaze.

*FYI: Tuna is a truly a nutrient-dense food. It’s an excellent source of protein, and it’s rich in minerals like selenium, magnesium, and potassium; vitamin B, and omega-3.

4. Mikie Squared:

Cindy is ALWAYS on a Diet SaladThis delicious salad is a little embarrassing to ask for by name, but it’s worth it. Grilled chicken with grilled vegetables & avocado with a side of honey balsamic vinaigrette…low carb and delicious. It really doesn’t get better. The sauteed veggies are delicious and go perfectly with the honey basalmic.

Grilled Salmon – Says the menu, “Drizzled in a delectable dill creme sauce with rice & grilled vegetables.” Can’t go wrong with fish and veggies (and a glass of pinot).

5. Marty O’Brien’s Social Club had three options you might want to try:

Grilled Eggplant with fresh mozzarella, grilled roasted red peppers, tomato, balsamic glaze.

Seared Tuna Salad – Mixed greens with mandarian oranges, red peppers, snow peas, goat cheese, balsamic dressing. Did I mention I love basalmic dressing?

Vegetable Stir Fry- Fresh seasonal vegetables, teriyaki sauce, and rice – add chicken or shrimp for some extra protein (but hold the steak if you want to keep it light)!
Regardless of where you choose to wine and dine in Hoboken, make your options healthy when possible. A few simple rules to follow to stay lean: order your food grilled not fried, hold the cheese when you can, and fill up on veggies before diving into the salty appetizers and other indulgences.
Happy (almost) spring!

The Weekend Ahead – Hoboken Bar Scene by DPB

    DPB’s The Weekend Ahead

Hobokenites/Fellow bar-goers – welcome to the first installment of the Weekend Ahead, a quick, but detailed look at what’s happening in Hoboken bars for the upcoming weekend. Sure many of the other Hoboken blogs put up ads or list specials, but your very own Drunken Polar Bear spends the time talking to bar owners, reviewing specials, Hoboken events and even analyzing super scientific meteorology patterns to ensure you have the best bar options for the weekend. So off we go…

    Weather Outlook

Much like this entire week we’re going to continue to play the cat and mouse game with those pesky thunderstorms and showers. Scattered thunderstorms tonight, a few PM showers on Saturday and then showers on Sunday so Saturday may be your best bet if you’re looking to sneak in some a little time outside.

    Subway Series This Weekend

With the title for NY baseball superiority on the line this weekend (Go Mets!) you may want to head to one of Hoboken’s sports bars for the games (Friday @ 7, Saturday @ 7, Sunday @ 1).

Black Bear
Friday – Coors Light ($3) and Jim Beam ($4) specials
Saturday – Miller Light Pitchers ($9.99) and Jim Beam ($5) specials

McSwiggans
Saturday – Bud Light/Coors Light ($10) & Yeungling Pitchers ($11)

Also check out: Wicked Wolf, Hoboken Bar & Grill, Liberty’s, Hudson Tavern with TheBoken’s very own guest DJ with an ipod “DJ Kurt”.

    Maibock Beer Festival Extended 1 More Week at Jersey City Beer Garden

Maibock beer is a German beer most often associated with spring and the month of May. It is a pale version of a traditional bock; it is less malty and may be drier, hoppier and more bitter, but still with a relatively low hop flavor creating a mildly spicy (sometimes peppery) taste. It will be featured as well as some live music (Alpine Squeeze) at the Jersey City Beer Garden this weekend.

    Sangria Sundays

For all those recovering from the weekend or just looking to relax on a Sunday afternoon check out Mike Squared’s Sangria Sundays. $10 pitchers of Sangria all Sunday.

Enjoy your weekend and stay dry!
