Getting Fit in the Mile Square: {Summer 2017 Fitness}

Most people find it hard to motivate to workout when it’s 35 degrees and raining cats and dogs. I, on the other hand, find it impossible to work on my physical fitness when the sun is shining and there are margaritas to be drank. Luckily, Hoboken offers us plenty of ways to get fit while enjoying every ounce of the summer sunshine.

Free Fitness

fitness in the park

Fitness, Yoga and Pilates in the Park

Hoboken offers free fitness classes all week long throughout the summer. On Mondays, you can participate in anything from kickboxing to Crossfit at Pier A. Yoga classes take place at Pier A on Tuesdays. On Wednesdays, there is a range of fitness activities under the 14th Street Viaduct. Yoga and Pilates is offered at Maxwell Place Park on Thursdays. Classes are an hour long and start at 7pm. They give you a great taste of what the gyms in the area have to offer while leaving plenty of time to enjoy a Cucumber Cilantro Margarita after!


The Hoboken Cove Boathouse is a non-profit public boathouse that runs free kayaking on weekends at Maxwell Place. Through September, this first come, first serve kayaking program provides you with kayaks, paddles and life jackets. Generally, everyone can ride for 20 to 25 minutes. (If there is no one waiting, it’s possible you can stay out even longer.) They also offer rivers trips that are announced via their email list. Kayaking offers you great fitness benefits and targets most of the muscles in your body.

Park Activities

Did you know there are 20 parks in Hoboken? Grab a basketball, your tennis racket or even a skateboard and head outside! Most parks are open from sunrise until sunset. Hit any of the various courts for an hour and you can burn upwards of 400 calories. How’s that for free fitness?

Fitness That Will Cost Ya

zog sports

Zog Sports/ABL

There are various sports leagues that take place throughout Hoboken and the surrounding towns. You can get your kicks by playing on a competitive soccer team or your hits by playing in the various “just for fun” softball leagues. Most leagues cost upwards of $60 for the season, and your league fee usually includes a t-shirt. Both leagues are a great way to meet people to make some Hoboken memories with.

Local Races

If running is your thing, why not strap on your sneakers and enter a 5K? There are two of them that take place over the summer in Hoboken and even more races in our surrounding areas. Fleet Feet in Hoboken offers running meetups on Wednesdays at 7pm, and the Hoboken Harriers (HOHA) also run host runs from this location on Thursdays and Saturdays. This will get you on track to crush whatever mile marker you choose. They offer water before and after the run and are open to all running levels.


No matter whether you pay to play or free is the way you like to be, Hoboken in the summertime is the perfect backdrop for any fitness activity. It’s so easy to ditch the squats for the sangria — but when you can workout in the great outdoors, a drink is so much sweeter after a sweat session.

How To {Host A BBQ Like A Boss}

It’s the unofficial start of summer! That means it is time to BBQ your brains out. Cookouts are one of the many joys of the summertime because, really, how can you beat friends, food and sunshine? The sweet sound of a hot dog (or veggie kabob) sizzling on a hot grill is enough to lull you to sleep. Toss in a few adult beverages and you have yourself a stellar Saturday, Sunday, or any day of the week really! You don’t need an outdoor space to have an awesome BBQ. Just follow these simple steps to host the BBQ that your wildest dreams are made of.

Step 1) Grab a Cooler


On a hot summer day, a cold brewski or cocktail really hit the spot. In addition to making sure your cooler is filled with frosty beverages, don’t forget the ice. Most mini marts and supermarkets in Hoboken sell ice — so it’s certainly not hard to find, but very easy to forget if it’s not on your radar. Coolers are good for indoor or outdoor cookouts since space in the refrigerator is usually limited because of all those tasty treats you have in it!


Step 2) Figure Out a Menu

Which leads us to Step 2, deciding what the menu is going to be. Whether you have a Weber or a George Foreman, there are plenty of delicious options. Of course hot dogs, hamburgers and kabobs are classic grilling foods. But why not think outside the box and have “do-it-yourself pizzas” on the grill? It’s basically the same cooking process as it would be in an oven, and you can use your pizza stone or plop that delicious dough right on the grill. As for appetizers, you can keep it super simple with various chips and dips, or get fancy with some tartare or ceviche. Whether you’re cooking on charcoal or gas, check out @brbcookingdinner or @hashtagfoodpics for some delicious inspiration.


Step 3) Make a Playlist


Music sets the tone for how you want your BBQ to go. It’s always a good idea to start off with some easy listening at the beginning of the gathering, and then once people get a little looser, some classic dance hits. If DJing isn’t your strong suit, let Hoboken Happy Hours help you out! Our Spotify handle has plenty of playlists that offer you hours of listening.


Step 4) Prep

All good parties have one thing in common: preparation. Prepare whatever you can the night before (or morning of) so you don’t have to worry about missing out on hanging with your guests. Make sure you have enough plates, cups, napkins, utensils and serving platters, because no one likes having to run to the store in the middle of a party.


Step 5) Games/Activities


No BBQ is complete without some games. If you’re outside, why not take it back to your youth and have a water balloon fight? Regardless of inside or outside, card games are always a classic go to.


Step 6)  Get Ready for Your House to be the New “Go to” Spot

party house

Whether you have an outdoor space or just some pumping tunes and a solid air conditioning unit, your friends are sure to want to come back over and over again by following these easy steps. If you are outdoors, make sure to apply sunscreen and if the party goes into the evening (which I don’t doubt that it will), make sure to provide some bug spray so the hamburgers and hot dogs are the only things getting eaten.

Happy BBQ Season everyone!

Hoboken’s {Healthy Alternatives} to Your Favorite Bar Foods

It is SO easy to walk into several Hoboken bars, sniff the air and say “ahhhhhh” as you inhale the smell of fried foods in all their glory. If I personally get one whiff of buffalo sauce, there’s a good chance I’m looking to find who ordered the wings. Everyone has their “cheat” days, but what about the other 6 days of the week? While nothing tastes quite like fried, you can get pretty close with some of the alternatives Hoboken bars and restaurants have to offer!

Fried Chicken vs Grilled Chicken

mikie squared grilled chicken wrap

At Mikie Squared there are a variety of options for chicken – on a sandwich, wrap, or even a salad. Try “Alyssa’s ‘Everyday’ Chicken Wrap”: grilled chicken with avocado, salsa, romaine lettuce, homemade chipotle mayo and Monterey Jack cheddar. I’ve never met a wrap or sandwich (or salad) at Mikie Squared that I didn’t like. Opt for their sweet potato fries as a side, or order salad on the side to give yourself extra healthy brownie points.


Fried Wings vs Coal-Fired Wings

urband coalhouse wings

Instead of your regular fried chicken wings, which you can find pretty much anywhere in Hoboken, Urban Coalhouse offers coal-fired wings. You can’t compare to that hot-out-of-the-oven taste. Plus, they’re topped with onions, which are a vegetable! No-brainer.


Mozzarella Sticks vs Fresh Mutz

Mozzarella sticks are such a comfort food for many. Who doesn’t remember being a kid and thinking that a fried cheese stick was the best thing ever? (Especially dipped in sauce.) Lucky for us, there are a plethora of places that offer and even COMPETE every year in the fresh mutz arena. Give Tony Boloney’s a try, especially since they have a variety of flavors to choose from. And if it’s your cheat day, why not dip into some of their fried mozz sticks to take you back to the good ol’ days (when calories didn’t count).


Fried Calamari vs Stuffed Calamari (or Seafood Salad)

Fried calamari: another bar-food favorite. You can find calamari on just about every menu in town, but what you CAN’T find on every menu is STUFFED calamari. Where can you find it? Leo’s Grandevous. It’s even covered with sauce, if you’re the type that likes to dipped your fried squid. Also check out their seafood salad if you’re feeling like you want to mix things up. Squid quo pro.


Fried Popcorn Shrimp vs Hot Oil Shrimp

As a seafood lover, shrimp comes up pretty high on my list of favorite foods. I’ve had all kinds – fried popcorn shrimp, buffalo shrimp, even bacon-wrapped shrimp. But I’ve never had anything that tastes like the Hot Oil Shrimp with Dirty Lemon at Antique Bakery. You rip their heads off, chow down, and just when you think the dish is over, you realize you have a piece of oven-baked Italian bread to sop up all of the oil and lemon that your shrimp were swimming in. It’s the dish that keeps on giving.


French Fries vs Baked Fries

Shoestring, boardwalk, sweet potato, steak, poutine… did I forget one? Sooooo many types of fries to come by. All delicious in their own way, but all prepared in the same way – fried. If you want to have a sandwich and fries without feeling bad about finishing them, check out Turtle Club, where baked fries are served with all of their sandwiches.


Bonus Menu: The Lighter Side @ Biggie’s

biggie's lighter side chicken


In the past month, your favorite clam bar has rolled out a new healthy choice menu, dubbed “The Lighter Side”. Here you can find fare such as sautéed calamari, a grilled shrimp platter, and even grilled chicken fingers that will make you forget fried chicken exists!

Aloha Hoboken!: 3 Ways {The Ale House} Will Put You On Hawaiian Time

Even though the weather is starting to allow us out of our winter prisons, there’s still no denying that you’d jump into a Hawaiian state-of-mind any time it was offered. Well you’re in luck.

The Ale House is the ONE and ONLY bar (did I mention it was the only one) in Hoboken boasting three magical beers from Kona Brewing Company. These magical concoctions-dubbed “Liquid Aloha” by the brewery-of pure paradise will bring you from Hoboken to Hawai’i faster than Lindsay Lohan turned into Jamie Lee Curtis in Freaky Friday.

Full Disclosure: Kona Big Wave has been my favorite beer for at least 12 months now. After my most recent market research session at The Ale House thanks much to the always amazing Maria (Hey, Maria!), my feelings MIGHT have changed. Hanalei Island IPA could be a front runner for my new favorite. In conclusion, there’s no way I can be wrong twice about the best beer is there? I didn’t think so. You can guarantee you’re going to love at least one of these goblets of beautiful potion:

Kona Big Wave

I had to start with my go-to which Maria had poured before I could even sit down and say “Aloha!”. Once it hit the lips I was confident I had Kelly Slater (professional surfing legend) like moves and would be ready to jump on a board in no time at all. As an American Blonde Ale, the fruitiness is subtle, so it’s not sweet like that of a Dole Pineapple straight from the 50th state. Kona Big Wave 4 Lyf.

kona big wave ale house

Kona Longboard Lager

Is it possible to hold an actual longboard and not throw the Shaka? This American Pale Lager will have you hangin’ loose in no time. There’s a little spicy hop flavor in there that will keep you hangin’ ten over the bar for another.

PS – That’s not fresh pineapple you’re chomping on, it’s the hot and buttery popcorn The Ale House pumps out for free every.single.day. If you didn’t know this by now, it might be time for you to finally get off island time.

kona longboard ale house

Kona Hanalei Island IPA

My first sip of this Island IPA brought me back to what I would have imagined it being like during the 1980 Winter Olympics when we said “Not Today!” to the Russian Hockey Team. This is due to the MASSIVE upset this beer was putting on my long-term (tinder-less) relationship with Kona Big Wave. This special American IPA pays tribute to the island of Kauai. The experience your tastebuds will go through will mimic being on Kauai, which many call “the most beautiful place on Earth.”

Adam not only enjoys long walks on the beach and romantic comedies (he’s serious), but he also loves playing hockey, hanging out with his pals, and giving self-proclaimed top-notch high fives. When he’s not rooting on his Denver Broncos or USC Trojans, he’s cruising the streets of Hoboken in search of the coldest pint and the cheesiest pizza. His top two life goals are as follows: play on a blob (Heavy Weights, anyone?) and swim in a life size pool of Mac n’ Cheese.
