   by Sally Deering

 Feeling the holiday spirit can be as tough as finding a parking space in Hoboken. Sure, it’s there somewhere, but only after you go around the block a few times barking “bah-humbug” under your breath!

Well, not this year! There are plays, movies and other holiday events happening locally (or just a car or train ride away) guaranteed to get you in the spirit these next few weeks. Here’s a sampling:

The Spirit of Dickens

There’s a special performance going on in Hoboken, a beautiful and unique production of “A Christmas Carol told by the Spirit of Charles Dickens,” at the Mile Square Theatre, a charming 110-seat space on the second floor of the Monroe Arts Center (720 Clinton St.) It runs through Dec. 19th and it’s a dreamy rendition of the classic tale of miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge performed by Lenard Petit, an accomplished actor who narrates the story as the incarnation of Charles Dickens and proceeds to play all the parts of the Christmas tale – 18 characters of varying shapes, sizes and genders in a performance that captivates the audience from beginning to end. At the Sunday matinee I attended, children in the first row seemed mesmerized and not one whisper of “Mommy, I want to go home!” could be heard in the theater.

River View Observer -Restaurant Views -Elegant Dining and a Sexxy Upstaris Lounge at the Embankment

Dave  and his sister Anne Marie carved a niche on Grove Street with their handsome little restaurant, The Merchant, where the bar is cozy, the drinks are yummy and the food is All-American delish! It’s a great place to go for a business luncheon, watch a game or hang out with your friends and talk about life.

 Dave and Anne Marie decided to try something a little more upscale and 2-1/2 years ago they opened The Embankment, a beautiful fine-dining restaurant nestled in the heart of 10th Street in the Hamilton Park neighborhood, where friendly neighbors drop by for brunch, dinner and drinks with friends.

“To Park or not to Park”

Hudson Transportation Management Association’s Joins Salute to World Parks in Newport Waterfront Area in Jersey City, NJ

What’s the saying… “All the worlds a stage.” On Friday September 17th in the Newport  waterfront section in downtown Jersey City, the Hudson Transportation Management Association used two parking spaces to prove that point.

 Joing a world salute to parks, the HTMA , placed the Actors Shakespeare Company of New Jersey City University pictured above between two parking spaces on Town Square Place  and Pavonia area to show that land used for parking is actually valuable real estate that could be used for public theater, parks, community uses and other events.
