• 27 Events in Hoboken + Jersey City This Weekend {May 9th-May 12th, 2019}

    Written by:

    The weekend is almost here and we can literally taste it. The week started off poorly {please see this past Sunday’s downpour that cancelled the Art & Music Festival — rescheduled for next Sunday BTW} and the weekend is shaping up to be, well, another washout. But fear not, Hudson County residents, because the poor weather will not, dare we say it, rain on our parades. After all, it is Mother’s Day this Sunday and Mother Nature herself knows how lovely it is to treat mom to a warm-weathered day. Here are 27 events happening in Hoboken and Jersey City this weekend {May 9th-May 12th, 2019}:

    the shep bachelorette viewing

    Springtime means the return of Bachelorette Mondays, and what better way to celebrate the most “dramatic night in TV history” — every week, let’s be serious — than with specialty cocktails, awesome giveaways, and big screen TVs at The Shep {1313 Willow Avenue in Hoboken}. On Monday, May 13th from 8-10, The Shep is hosting the ultimate Bachelorette party {see what we did there}, complete with happy hour specials and wall-to-wall TVs {with volume, OFC}. Bartenders will be whipping up signature bachelorette cocktails throughout the night and The Shep’s happy hour specials mean 75-cent wings, $2 off wine, and $15 sangria pitchers for the night.

    Of course, it wouldn’t be a Bachelorette premiere without brackets, so The Shep will be handing out brackets for viewers to fill out and the winner at the end of the season will win a $100 gift card to The Shep. Best part: It’s open to everyone, and free of charge to enjoy the viewing {drinks + food available for purchase}. Perfect excuse to go out on a Monday — see you there.
