Calling all spaghetti lovers! Get ready for the annual Spaghetti Block Party, where people gather by the Hoboken waterfront for some non-stop vacuum-suctioning of these delectable classic Italian noodles. The idea was to re-live a similar Spaghetti Block Party community event that took place in the 1950’s on Washington Street. In 2005, this event was brought back in celebration for the 150 years of Hoboken and since then, has continued ever since each summer. It’s pretty much a big outdoor community fiesta with lots of pasta! You must buy tickets to come to this event and don’t worry, it’s not too late. No man or woman is lonely eating spaghetti – it requires so much attention. So make sure you go and show spaghetti some lovin’!

On my quest to find the best bars with games and rec rooms, I found that no other bar in Hoboken can compare to the variety of bar games that The Shannon has to offer. Located in downtown Hoboken, this game room paradise offers over seven types of bar games with occasional special game nights using classic games that we all love. They also carry almost every major sports package, so if you’re looking for a great bar to watch a big game or your favorite team, check out their insanely ginormous projection screen in the back of the bar. So walk in, have a drink and enjoy the drinker’s ultimate playground.

Once in a while, I’ll explore Hoboken in hopes to find interesting objects to photograph. A photography buddy of mine had shown me a spot underneath the 15th Street overpass, where fresh graffiti talks loudly and a little old lonely couch sits quietly and listens. Who knows how long this couch has been here or how long it will survive. I find that its beauty in both solitude and randomness is simply just fascinating.

I have an obsession for cobblestone roads, especially ones that still exist around town that reminds Hoboken of its past. I took this photograph on Court Street, which runs between Hudson and Washington from 7th to Newark Streets. As you stare down this long deserted alleyway, you could almost flashback to the way it used to be hundreds of years ago, originally providing access to the residents’ mews or stables. Today it is used primarily as an alley and access for home garages. For me, it’s a quick and bumpy shortcut when I’m biking around town and want to avoid the heavy pedestrian traffic on good ol’ Washington Street.
