posted in: Things To Do NJ | 0

We hope you had your fill of BBQ, fireworks, apple pie and relaxation over July 4th weekend, because there’s plenty to do in Hoboken this week! In fact, it seems like every week a new trivia night and live music event pops up on our radar. View this week’s noteworthy items and events:

Noteworthy Items

Hudson Restaurant Week is Coming Up

Very soon, the Hudson County Restaurant Week will be upon us. From July 28th to August 8th, over 25 restaurants from Hoboken and Jersey city will offer prixe fixe menus. It’s a great opportunity to eat at new restaurants, that you wouldn’t normally try. Mark your calendars!

Free Historic Ship Rides

This Saturday July 12th, is the City of Water Day, a celebration being held in Hoboken, Governors Island and other nearby waterfront locations. There will be family friendly activities such as live music, food and kid-friendly activities like most typical Hoboken events. The standout here is the availability of free boat rides and tours of historic ships! There are 3 featured boats that will have rides available from Hoboken including the John J. Harvey fire-boat, a tugboat fittingly named the Tug Pegasus, and a Gatsby-era inspired yacht, The Beacon. Click here to see the boat ride schedule.

Pier 13 GILT Deal

Pier 13 has a deal on GILT, for a 2-hour stand-up paddle boarding adventure along with a personal pizza from the Pizza Vita Food Truck. Wash the pizza down with two drinks of your choice from the “Pier Garden”. This little adventure costs $79 and must be redeemed by October 31st, 2014.

Psst – Don’t forget that Hoboken also offers free kayaking and with lesser frequency, paddle boarding at the Hoboken Cove Boathouse. However, you will be limited to around 20 minutes of fun.

New $20 All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Deal

Teak is under new ownership and they’re making lots of changes! Let’s hope they don’t kill the 50% off food and drinks deal on Mondays and Thursdays which is one of our favorite deals in Hoboken. The new management has introduced an All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Deal for just $20. Now, there are some restrictions, but it still sounds like it’s worth a try. Only two rolls can be ordered at a time, per person, though of course you can order many times throughout the hour. Additionally, there’s a minimum $3 drink order per person. Not too bad! Learn more about the best sushi deals, with our Hoboken Sushi Guide.

WHEN: Monday through Friday 12-10PM and Saturday/Sunday from 4-10PM!
