A Taste of Hoboken 2014

A Taste of Hoboken 2014

Last week we enjoyed the Hoboken North-Hudson YMCA’s 24th Annual event a Taste of Hoboken. The event offers tastings of local restaurants best dishes along with an array of wine and spirit samplings. There was something to please every pallet including butternut squash lasagna from Amanda’s, spicy tuna from Sushi Lounge and gnocchi in a meaty ragout from Battello. A special thanks to the event organizers, restaurateurs and donors for a delicious way to support a great cause.

Prepping Your Home for Winter Weather

With the leaves falling and the temperatures cooling, there are many things that come to mind including all the preparations for the upcoming holidays and events, but there are some preparations that may slip your mind. Check out this checklist for the upcoming days to help you make sure all is ready for winter.

Check safety devices. Test all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in the house, and replace batteries as needed. Check the expiration date on the kitchen fire extinguisher and replace it if needed.

Seal gaps where mice could enter. Speaking of critters, take a close look around the interior and exterior of your home and cover any and all gaps you find. A heavy-duty to cover exterior vents and steel wool can be used to close small gaps on the interior.

Add weather stripping. If you have old weather stripping that has loosened, remove it and replace it with new material.

Swap seasonal clothes.  Now that October is over, it’s time to settle into more predictable fall and winter weather. Gather up stray sandals and lightweight clothing that you don’t plan to wear again until spring, and pack it away.

Decorate with layers of warmth. Get toasty indoors with cozy throws, thicker curtains and soft rugs. If you haven’t done so yet, swap out your bedding for thicker blankets and fluffy duvets.

Put up storm windows and doors. If you use storm windows or doors and haven’t put them up yet, now is the time.

Inspect the roof. Problems like damaged shingles and worn-out seals around vent pipes and chimneys are much easier to remedy if you catch them early.

Second Anniversary of Superstorm Sandy

October 29th marked the second anniversary of Superstorm Sandy – the storm that ravaged Hoboken, Jersey City and the rest of the eastern seaboard. There are obvious signs of recovery here in town and down the coast but there are still recovery efforts and efforts to make sure that should this ever happen again, we are more prepared. Check out this article about three people who are working to ensure that is the case.
