Before I get into writing this review, let me explain myself for the lack of activity on my blog. Yes, I haven’t posted here since September. All I have to say is that life has been a struggle for me the past couple of months. When life is nothing but a train wreck, one must keep their head up and do everything possible to make oneself better. Needless to say, I’m still slowly getting back in the hang of this all. I truly miss writing and exploring Hoboken for you all and I’ll be adding posts more regularly from now on. I’m also thinking about a blog redesign pretty soon too, so be on the look out for that this year. But I digress.

I finally got the chance to take advantage of the free kayaking this weekend in Hoboken. Yes, I came in contact with Hudson River water and did not turn into a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! And overall, I have to say it was one of the most relaxing activities I’ve done in a long time in town. Once you get into that river, you can paddle your way to a clear, relaxed mind and of course, get some much-needed exercise. Last day to kayak for free until next summer is on August 15, so be sure to check it out!

When I first moved to Hoboken, I was unimpressed with the quality of cuts given by the unisex chain salons across the mile square. Luckily, I had a college friend who had recommended D&V to save me from the usual uneven sideburns. For nearly 50 years, Dominick and Vincent’s Barber Shop has provided the Hoboken community with precision cuts and fresh styles that will guarantee compliments.

Now I’m not the type of person to spend $50 bucks at a fancy schmancy salon just for a haircut when you can get the same quality trim at another shop for a cheaper and better experience. I also avoid places that have stylists that clearly don’t care about your hair. I’ll admit it, I grew up going to one of those unisex hair salons like Pro-Haircutters and usually ended up with some random person who left my sideburns uneven. But since I’ve come to Hoboken, I’ve only trusted barbershops. Because let’s face it fellas. Barbers know how to cut a man’s hair. Need a free haircut? Keep reading!
