Tasteful Tailgating Tips from Chef Anthony Pino

Here are some tasteful tailgating tips for Hoboken Football fans from Chef Anthony Pino of AD Catering | Events, Anthony Davids, Bin 14, and the Kolo Klub…..


Tailgaters have always taken their pre-game drinking seriously, but are now equally serious about their pre-game eats. “You don’t just see the standard burgers and hot dogs at sporting events anymore,” stated Chef Anthony Pino of AD Catering|Events. “As you stroll through the crowds gathered at sporting events these days you will find a wide range of tailgating fare, from specialty cheeses to elaborate lobster and steak dinners.” Chef Pino knows a thing or two about pre-game entertaining; his company AD Catering|Events provides gourmet prepared food for those headed to the local Giants and Jets games at MetLife Stadium, or to those cheering on their teams with friends at home.

A tip Chef Pino offers to those planning to entertain: nothing makes a party better for host and guest alike, than to offer guests delicious items that require minimal hands-on assistance. He also gives a word of advice when prepping for pre-game entertaining. “Know your limits. If you want to have fun and enjoy your guests’ company, plan your menu using food items that can be prepared ahead of time, so all you will need to do is warm and display.”

In addition, he and his team based in Hoboken, regularly put together a wide range of options for the local crowd who are off to outdoor events such as The Hunt in Far Hills, NJ, or are simply inspired to enjoy the fall weather and scenery with private picnics and wine tastings. Chef Pino continued, “Customers are ordering take-away platters ranging from the high end – lamb chops, filet, seafood, to the basic – sausage and peppers, sandwiches and cheese, as they head off to their fall festivities.” He smiles as he says, “What goes together better than fresh autumn air and foliage paired with good food and wine?”

For more information about AD Catering | Events call 201.222.8399. Their address is 953 Bloomfield Street Hoboken, NJ 07030.

Filed under: Eli Manning,Hoboken,NY Giants — Tags: , , , , , — TheBoken @ 3:20 PM

According to the NY Post Eli Manning will hosting an upcoming show on Saturday Night Live May 5th. The special musical guest will be Rhianna. His brother Peyton Manning had previously been on the show in 2007 and had a couple of funny skits.

Winning a Superbowl is usually a good way for an NFL QB to get on the show. Here is another case of Eli following in big brother’s foot steps. The Boken is curious to see what skits are written for Eli. His brother Peyton is a natural in front of the camera and has all those commercials as well. But in the most important stat Eli has his brother beat with two Superbowl rings to one.

Video- Hoboken Celebrates NY Giants Super Bowl XLVI Win!

Hoboken Celebrates NY Giants Super Bowl XLVI Win!

Last night the New York Giants led by hometown hero Eli Manning bested the New England Patriots in a close game by the score of 21-17. Once again Eli Manning drove down the field in the 4th quarter to lead the Giants to the game winning drive in an eerily similar fashion to Super Bowl XLII just 4 years ago when they last won the big game. Hoboken’s bars, especially the downtown ones were jammed for the big game. Washington Street was a sign of jubilation and some of the bars such as 1Republik and Black Bear still has lines outside even after the game had ended.

Once again congratulations to the New York Giants and their improbable run to another NFL Championship. Do you think this second Super Bowl win makes Eli Manning a Hall of Fame quarterback? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Hoboken Celebrates NY Giants Super Bowl XLVI Win!

Below is some video footage TheBoken.com took last of the spontaneous celebration in Hoboken on Washington Street. Football fans were pumped. Hopefully not too many people were counting on an early night’s rest last night. Anyone living on Washington Street or 1st Street probably heard pretty well the joyful commotion.
