August and Everything After

Autumn.

At the Jersey Shore, it is as taboo to summer renters as the words "Monday", "rain" or "walk of shame."

Now that the calendar is well into August, a quiet panic has set in on the beaches and its bars. Some may categorize panic as negative. But for those who are fans of late-night drama, awkward confessions and consequence-free environments, the final month of summer can be pure entertainment.

Whose Line Is It Anyway?

No one would confuse humble Hoboken as the social juggernaut that is New York, particularly when it comes to its clubs and bars. However, one truth in regards to what separates a popular bar from a dead one remains universal: A line full of eager patrons parked outside of a drinking establishment tends to tweak the curiosity of those looking for the "in" place around town, instead of repelling them.

The Third Date Doctrine

Pressure wears many hats in the tri-state area.

Exhibit A) Work: New York's unemployment rate is 7.9% (the national rate is 5.9%). "Mass layoffs" is as common a term on CNBC as "Chapter 11." The pressure to hold on to one's gainful employment is higher than ever for young people.

The rent goes up while the space gets smaller. Losing a job could mean dubiously defying the old saying, "You can't go home again."

The Hunt for Bed October

Each year on a Saturday in late October the residents of Hoboken board trains, buses and cars to journey westbound on Route 78. The destination? Picture Yuppie Woodstock meets The Dukes of Hazzard meets an open casting call for St. Elmo’s Fire…the New Class. The tailgating event is The Far Hills Race Meeting, but to most it is simply known as "The Hunt."
