How to Have a ‘Mean Girls’ Day in Hoboken {Because October 3rd}

Written by:

Obviously, it’s a tad basic to post about Mean Girls on October 3rd, BUT when it also happens on a Wednesday *and* we live a hop, skip, and jump from Broadway in NYC, you know there’s no resisting.

If you haven’t already heard {or have been}, Mean Girls made its Broadway debut this past year and is wowing plastics everywhere.

Directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw {but written by Tina Fey}, Mean Girls originally debuted in Washington D.C. and now has set up shop at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway {in New York City}…but, while we loved it, a post about all that is, well, SNOOZE. We won’t bore you with the deets because DUHHH go on google, buy tickets, and you’re in business. It’s not hard — unless you’re Karen.

Instead, on this glorious day of October 3rd, we’ll share something a little more relatable than Lindsay Lohan living her best life in Mykonos. For reference:

…we digress. Here’s how to have a very Mean Girls Day in Hoboken:

2. Eat as many cheese fries as you want. There is no limit to how many cheese fries you can have. Extra points for disco fries from Malibu Diner.

3. Play fetch with your dog {or random dogs, no judgment} at one of Hoboken’s many dog parks.

4. Purge yourself of your secrets and get a Brazilian blowout at Two01 Hair, Keratin Cafe, Blo-It-Out Lounge, or Up & Out.

5. Wear sweatpants AND a vest. Most likely bought at Athleta and/or Shop No. 18.

6. Order a cake filled with rainbows and smiles from Sugar Suckle, Hudson Cakery, or Baking Mama.

7. Drink wine at Grand Vin, Bin 14, or Sorellina and tell a random child {or your own} that they keep you young.

8. Buy a scary Halloween costume at Spirit {which just popped up downtown}:

9. Buy some Kalteen protein bars {or just regular protein bars} at Organic Basic Foods.

10. Don’t have sex because you’ll get pregnant and die.

11. Tell a friend who invites you out that you’re sick. Because self-care.

12. Order a mocktail at a very alcohol-friendly bar, and ask if there’s alcohol in it.

via GIPHY

13. Tell a random mom at Starbucks she’s not a regular mom. She’s a cool mom.

via GIPHY

14. Order hot chocolate at Sunnyside Cafe or Zafra because you go Glen Coco{a}.

via GIPHY

15. Catch a game at Black Bear because they have ESPN.

Go see the real thing on Broadway. You’ll be glad you did!

Happy October 3rd.
