Where to go on NYE!

Can you believe its almost 2019?! I can’t either! As the year comes to an end, everyone is jotting down their 2019 goals, New Year’s resolutions, and trying to find the best way to bring the new year in. 

While some like to stay home and watch the ball drop with family, others like to go out and party with friends. However do it, just be sure to have fun. Making it to see another year is always something to celebrate! 

For those who do want to party, but don’t know where to go, here’s a treat for you!

NYE at Waterside

Gather a group of friends, family or your significant other and bring in 2019 at Waterside Restaurant & Lounge (On the Hudson). Celebrate New Years Eve with style, class and a beautiful view of the NYC Skyline! 

The Midnight Ball: Black Tie Affair

This event will take place at the BRAND NEW Atelier Ballroom in Jersey City. If you want to bring in the New Year in an elegant atmosphere, this is the place for you. There will be VIP seating and private rooms available. 

New Year’s Eve at Borgata

Concerts rock the garden state and Rio’s closing ceremony concludes the Weekend Recap

By Ryan Hickey

The last dwindling days of summer have been nothing sort of beautiful. August has been gracing New Jersey with heat, sunshine, and fun. Here’s what you missed is weekend:

Friday, August 19th

Two very different artists came to entertain NJ on Friday night. Kristin Chenoweth performed at The Borgata Music Box in Atlantic City, NJ. She shared a post on Instagram after the show hyping up AC night 2. Black Sabbath rocked the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, NJ. The Prince of Darkness (Ozzy Osborne) knows how to slay the show.

Wonderful night at the @borgataac… Excited for round 2 tonight, Atlantic City!

Kenny Chesney was in the Garden State this weekend. Adorable Sam Hunt opened. 56,292 fans piled into MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ for the Spread the Love Tour. He shared a photo on Instagram of enthusiastic fans smiling, screaming, and waving the flag proud captioning it, #americankids. He described the audience as, “Magic.” We agree, Chesney.

@mlstadium…. 56,292 of you. Magic. photo cred: Jill Trunnell

The Rio Olympic games closed with a bang for the USA. We finished with a total of 121 medals with China and Great Britain following behind with 70 and 67. 46 of the 121 medals were gold, 37 silver, and 38 bronze. The US athletes are truly number one. New Jersey’s women’s all around gymnastics gold medalist Laurie Hernandez (Old Bridge) shared a picture at the closing ceremony on Instagram with track and field Olympian Sydney McLaughlin (New Brunswick) with the caption, “Jerseyyyyyyyyy!” We are proud of you, girl! GO NJ! USA USA USA!

Jerseyyyyyyyyy!

Stronger than the Storm: Weekend Recap

Even during a weekend marred by heavy rain and thunderstorms throughout the state, the #GardenState never struggles to keep spirits high. Here’s what went down this weekend in #HipNJ’s summer weekend recap.

Friday, July 29th

The 2016 PGA Championship, a major tournament in professional golf, held its second round on Friday at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield Township. Despite several round delays caused by the inclement weather, American Jimmy Walker managed to come out on top at the end of the weekend long tournament.

It doesn’t matter how old you are or what you’re into – there’s always something going on in #NJ tailored exactly to your liking! This was made evident Friday night as traditional pop and jazz singer Tony Bennett took the stage at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City. The legendary musician celebrates his 90th birthday this coming week and is still going at it – now THAT’s hip.

Saturday, July 30th

The 34th Annual QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning held its second of two days at Solberg Airport in Readington on Saturday. The weekend-long festival had an unfortunate early closing on Sunday, but Friday and Saturday were filled with plenty of family entertainment from amusement park rides to magic shows. Oh, and Hot Air Balloon rides were available at specific times of day, with up to 100 ascending at once.

No place I’d rather be at 6:30am

Country music superstar and heartthrob Luke Bryan managed to overcome the rain and took over the stage at BB&T Pavilion in Camden on the second of two nights of his Kill the Lights Tour. Opening acts included Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch.

Last night was amazing ?? #lukebryan #dustinlynch #littlebigtown #killthelightstour2016 #lukeforpresident ?

Sunday, July 31st

The Haskell Invitational, an American Grade 1 race for thoroughbred horses, took place at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport. The $1 million race drew a crowd of nearly 30,000, all there to witness the intense showdown between Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist and Preakness Stakes winner Exaggerator. In the end, Exaggerator came out on top.

The 2016 Teen Choice Awards closed out the weekend, and July, Sunday night on the west coast. Among those honored with awards were Jersey-natives Nick Jonas and the late Christina Grimmie. Charlie Puth, who originates from Rumson, also received several nominations and performed his latest single We Don’t Talk Anymore with Selena Gomez.
