Hoboken’s Best Events: August 4th – 10th

After putting together these events posts for a few weeks now, we’re testing out a new format to help you find the newest events much faster.  This week the new events will be separated from the regular weekly events. There will be some overlap, like Movies Under the Stars because the movies change each week or Hudson Restaurant Week, because it’s a limited-time event. Let us know what you think of the new format in the comments below. All constructive feedback is welcomed!
