This event is being promoted by Rory Chadwick of Hoboken, and occasional writer and source for TheBoken.com. This is like Santa-Con with not just the booze, but eating and shopping as well. Here is Rory’s promo below….
Ho Ho 4 Hoboken! Santa Claus Day, an Eat, Drink, Shop Hoboken Citywide Event!
Saturday, December 22, 2012 from 2:00pm until 9:00pm
Ho Ho Ho 4 Hoboken is a community coming together for a fun filled day of eating, shopping and drinking. Rather than have a crawl, were going to expand the day to incorporate specials from not just certain bars. Every bar, restaurant and retail store can send in their specials to the organizers so that everyone can participate. Patronizing the entire Hoboken business community versus having a short list of bars to go to will benefit every business just before Christmas arrives. Shortly, a website will go live and it will be updated daily to show you the specials.
It is free to attend and you can choose to get dressed up, or you can come just as you are. It is a day to patronize the entire community. Hoboken, having been badly devastated by Hurricane Sandy needs local business more than ever before. To help make our community better and stronger, sooner rather than later. We’re offering a specials bracelet for just $20, the bracelet will give you access to all the specials in Hoboken and your $20 will benefit rebuildhoboken.org. We’re shooting to raise $20,000 and with a great turn out, we can make that happen! Buy bracelets here http://www.indiegogo.com/hohoho4hoboken?c=home&a=356456
Again, this is open to any business in Hoboken that wants to participate. In the wake of Sandy, every business in town needs your financial support, so as a community we should visit everyone and not just certain places. So many great landmark businesses are on the verge of losing everything, so many business owners have massive out of pocket costs. Far too many residents lost everything and have no place to call home, they are homeless. As the amazing Hoboken community that we are, we will Ho Ho Ho 4 Hoboken on Saturday, December 22nd and while we spread $$ to the awesome businesses of Hoboken, NJ we are also raising money for our friends, businesses and colleagues in need. Registration locations to be announced shortly, as well as other important details
It will be a great day! Please remember that while we’re all out to have a good time and raise money for www.rebuildhoboken.org, we do need to respect our neighbors and community. Please drink responsibly and have a good time For further information or detail please send messages through this page or post your questions. Together, as a Hoboken community we can have a fun time and make a huge difference.
