Written by:

Ah, the weekend {please cue a huge sigh of relief}. We kicked off the week with some “serious” snow and are finally ending it with just enough sunshine to remind us that it is, in fact, March {and that winter is, hopefully, on its way out}. Of course, some of the best ways to enjoy the weekend are by getting out and about – from catching a live music performance or volunteering your time to those in need, there are tons of fun + interesting ways to enjoy yourself. Here are 24 events happening in Hoboken + Jersey City this weekend {March 7th-March 10th, 2019}:

Arielle is a born-and-bred Jersey girl and like a true NJ native, half her diet consists of bagels and the other half pizza. As a graduate of both American University and City, University of London, she’s been a passionate writer ever since she wrote her first “book” in the first grade. When she’s not furiously typing away at her keyboard, she spends her time ticking places off of her “to travel to” list, trying any and all new foods, and trying to stop herself from spending too much money at Zara.
