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…
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.

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.
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!
