2019!!!

Get ready to have some Fat Tuesday fun at South House Bar in Jersey City. Embrace the vintage ambiance and lose yourself on the dance floor while listening to authentic New Orleans tunes. After your night at South House, you will be wishing everyday was Mardi Gras!

Join in on the Mardi Gras fun at QXT’s nightclub in Newark! With free admission all night and $4 dollar drinks until 11 pm you will be dancing until the DJ leaves and drinking until the sun comes up. 

Feel as if your walking the streets of New Orleans in Somers Point at the South Jersey Jazz Society 3rd annual Mardi Gras eventSpend the day winning mascaraed themed competitions, indulging in all the Cajun food you can eat and watching a performance by Zydeco-a-Go-Go.

Thirsty for something frothy, delicious and mildly intoxicating? Expand your horizons and make your taste buds explode with flavors from all around the world. Even if your not much of a beer drinker, Newark’s locals favorite, Redd’s Biergarten, will have a beer that sounds so delicious you’ll have to taste it.

Make Mardi Gras your own at Grasshopper off the Green in Morristown. This Irish pub is cozy, loud and knows how to have a good time. While here, the drinks won’t end, everyone will become your friend (even the waitress!) and the laughs won’t stop.

Let us know how your Fat Tuesday celebration is going by tagging and commenting on our page @HipNewJersey . 

Puppy Costume Parade + Family Fall Festival!

As you all know, halloween is right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than attending the Long Branch Fall Festival and Pooch Parade! This is an event for the WHOLE family to enjoy, puppies included! It will take place at Pier Village, along the oceanfront boardwalk on Saturday, October 27th

Although the costumed puppies will definitely be the highlight of the event, there will be activities for the rest of the family to enjoy as well! The Festival will include bouncy rides, a costumed puppy parade, arts and crafts, touch a truck, craft vendors, a kids costume parade, Fresh Farmers and Makers Market, shopping, food and drink specials at local restaurants, and more!  A DJ will be present as well, along with costumed characters!

You will also be able to take the kiddies trick or treating throughout the shops of Pier Village and their Chamber of Commerce trailer and the Bungalow Hotel! They’ll love the idea of early trick or treating! The Pooch Parade will begin at 12pm, with the line-up happening at 11:30am. The Kids Costume Parade will begin at 2pm. The entire festival will go on from 11am-4pm

This is a cute and fun event for families or even groups of friends. Pier Village is looking to break last year’s 400-person record, and we know they can with #HipNj‘s help! 

See you there!
