Going to Hoboken, NJ
 
Family's going to a wedding in Hoboken. What do you recommend to do? We will be there until Sunday.

When do you get there?

This should be a fun thread.

Tomorrow @ noon. Any Seminole bars around the area? Wedding is Saturday, but will probably be over by the time the game starts.

Take the path train into Manhattan and enjoy NYC.

Consider yourself lucky if you can even find Hoboken. I'm not kidding. You'll be on the highway, I believe it's Rt. 9, and all maps will tell you that Hoboken is just a few feet away on the east side of the road. But you will not see it. All you'll see is the Hudson River and Manhattan off in the distance.

Hoboken is actually a few hundred feet below you, and you have to find the one road that leads down.

Hoboken is a young person neighborhood, or at least it was when I would visit friends there a decade ago. I'm sure there are plenty of bars/restaurants for you to blow some coin on.

All the young people are now 10 years old :)

Also, the actual size of Hoboken is like 2 square miles. Blink and you'll miss it.

This is the only answer you need. And the TRUTH.

It's a fresh out of college town. Lots of young professionals between 22-25 live there. It's a great place to party if you're in that age group and enjoy that kind of atmosphere.

If not, take the train to Manhattan.

There's always this approach:

YMMV

AKA a haven for transplanted hipsters & yuppies.

Say hello to Hobo Ken for me, if you should happen to run into him.

If you are into Cake Boss - I think the store is somewhere around there.

We had some auditor's from out of town that were asking me if I had been to the cake boss store.

There are tons of bars in that town - so enjoy some good happy hours. Take the Ferry to downtown enjoy the sights of freedom tower and statue of liberty as you cross the hudson.

Have a good time

Had a fun day. Went to La Isla Cuban restaurant, Carlo`s bakery, hung out with friends, walked around the Hudson, my kid played on a playground on 4th full of kids. That was refreshing to see my kid play with other kids . Playgrounds in FL are full of undercover cops, pedos, and overprotective bitches. We did see a girl break her arm in the monkey bars, very graphic. Walked like 10 miles and there were strollers everywhere with women handling 2~3 kids, pretty weird.

That place is pretty amazing. I worked a summer in Weehawken and every now and then, we'd take a long walk or a short car ride to Hoboken to eat there.

I should probably go back at some point.

^^^^^^^^^

I've eaten there before and the food is excellent.

Thank you for this. That's why I entered the thread, and there it was.

No. Hipsters are Brooklyn. Hoboken is frat dudes and sorority hoes.

This is very true.

Went to Manehattan, mostly sad faces and people running. I told my wife, so much humanity, so dehumanized.

LOL. Can't expect visitors to get it. But I'm sure you checked out all the cool places over the entire borough.

As for Hoboken, I was there this summer and found a cool bar on the main drag (Washington around 6th St)--Mikie Squared, with $10 pitchers of excellent sangria. That's all I have for Hoboken.
