2009 Hoboken Spaghetti Dinner Block Party

2009 Hoboken Spaghetti Dinner Block Party

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’!

What do you get when you combine golf rules with beer drinking and leave out all the boring stuff in the middle? One truly epic night of drunken debauchery! Hoboken buddies Tommy “Stizzles” and Mike T. hosted the 1st annual Hoboken Pub Golf Bar Crawl this past weekend, and I was honored to be invited and take part in this pinnacle game of choice in the modern sporting era. We all finished strong after an amazing 8 bar course and because we were all too smashed to keep track of the champion, I would say we all ended the night victorious.

Anyone could say that the actual city of Hoboken is a museum in and of itself. We walk on ground that was once trekked on by the Lenape Indians, Henry Hudson, Colonel Stevens, Frank Sinatra and Gideon Sundback, the Swedish engineer who invented the first zipper. Everyday we pass historical landmarks, from Elysian Park, baseball’s birthplace to the first Blimpie establishment. Being a history buff myself, once in a while I like to take a step back and think how history is all interconnected and appreciate everything that has happened up until my existence. Recently, I satisfied my craving for Hoboken history by visiting the Hoboken Historical Museum.

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!
