• The Thursday {3}: Root Beer Floats, Viola Vita, and 39 Steps

    Written by:

    Today’s Thursday Three consists of shopping, eating, and entertaining. The perfect triple threat for a weekend:

    1. Root Beer Floats at Schnackenbergs

    Brunch at Schnackenberg’s is my new favorite go-to. Featuring gluten-free pancakes, milkshakes, delicious doughnuts, and of course — ever-popular root beer floats, it’s an ace in the hole of breakfast spots. Plus, it’s BYO-champagne! So fun!

    2. Viola Vita’s Leather

    If you frequent uptown Hoboken, you’ve definitely seen this beautiful leather goods shoppe. Started by Mario from Firenze, each Italian piece is hand-picked and brought to Hoboken — he makes his journeys to Italy twice a year to bring back the most luxurious imports. From bags to sandals to boots and beyond, it’s a fun shopping experience in a boutique setting. Loving his yellow window display!

    3. 39 Steps {Broadway Show}

    Went to see this fabulous off-Broadway play several weeks ago and had to share! It’s a Hitchcock spoof with only 4 actors playing over 150 roles!! Amazing show, and funny {captivating} storyline. A must-see, right in Union Square.

    Til next Thursday, Hoboken!
