• The Thursday {3}: Nocciolata, Truffle Fries, and On Location Tours

    The Thursday Three – did you miss it? While you were busy stuffing yo’ face last Thursday, we were busy doing research for this week’s triple threat. But, it wasn’t hard. Here’s why:

    1. Nocciolata

    Can you tell I may or may not have licked the jar and scraped the sides before taking this photo? #oops.

    Um, seriously, this stuff makes Nutella look like baby food…especially since Nutella actually isn’t extremely healthy for you ingredient-wise. This is 100% organic {no palm oil or soy lechitin!} tastes amazing {creamy, smooth, chocolately hazlenut}, and goes down like butta. Believe me, it was tough even taking this pic because I struggled to not lick the jar clean beforehand. Two words: SORRY NUTELLA. 

     

    2. Truffle Fries at the Madison

    I feel like I write about the Madison’s food every week and I swear they don’t pay me to do so. Buuuuut, you’ve got to try their truffle fries. Mmm mmm good. Especially when you make the bartender pour you a champagne tower. My fave.

    This wasn’t part of the Thursday 3, but I thought it was relevant. Champs is always relevant.

    3. On Location Tours

    On Location Tours invited me to take a holiday lights and movie sights bus tour this past Saturday. It started at Columbus Circle, and went to a bunch of mainstream landmarks such as Lincoln Center, the department store windows, as well as showing some movie clips and locations where they were filmed throughout NYC. They also have a Sex and the City NYC tour which sounded fun!

    So there you have it… the Thursday 3 — 3 things we’re totally crushing on this week. See you next week?

    • Lame. When will you start posting things “Hoboken Girl’s” want to read again? It’s getting old coming here and seeing nothing useful. Pics of your dog, ring, and other nonsense give us no insight to what is going on in the city. Why don’t you review a new restaurant or gym or anything better than overpriced “Nutella” and spray tans.

      • Dear Laura,
        I’m so sorry you feel that way. I try my best to cover a variety of “Hoboken girls” topics for my readers with different interests, but alas, this blog originally started as my personal blog chronicling my experiences in Hoboken and developed into more — so yes, it will have restaurant and gym reviews from time to time, but it will most definitely be intertwined with posts about wedding planning in Hoboken, owning a dog in Hoboken, Nutella, and spray tans {the last two can actually can really improve one’s mood when feeling cranky, try it some time}. It’s a lifestyle blog, not a Hoboken news site — so if you’re looking for that, you may want to check out the other news sites in town. Thanks for stopping by!
