5 Places {Coming and Going in Hoboken} in November

This year, November came in like that one friend who pregamed your Friendsgiving and spilled a glass of red wine on your white couch…abrupt and unwanted. We set back our clocks and had to say goodbye to sunlight at 4pm, then we experienced our first snowfall that left commuters in a gridlock for hours. Thankfully for Hoboken residents, there’s some light at the end of the tunnel. November has brought us some exciting new businesses in hopes to pull us out of our early winter hibernation.

We say hello to…

Warby Parker

On Saturday, 11/17, this popular eyeglass chain opened its doors to tons of eager customers ready to shop the trendiest eyewear and enjoy the awesome atmosphere. The inside resembles a library, filled with colorful books and a mural behind one of the desks. This shop will offer special frame designs that are only available at the Hoboken location. Warby Parker is located at 538 Washington Street.

Mexican food lovers rejoice! Orale has opened the doors to its second location at 1426 Willow Avenue. Just like it’s original location in Jersey City, the new spot is filled with bright and colorful artwork. In fact, Orale brought in some of their favorite artists to help them cover the walls with plenty of trendy Instagram opportunities.

Greektown, located downtown on Garden Street, recently had to close its doors temporarily due to a fire. However, they are back open and serving up some authentic Greek cuisine. Don’t forget – it’s BYOB.

Maybe it’s time to start those New Year’s resolutions early. One Sol, a health and wellness boutique, celebrated its grand re-opening this month. Stop by their location at 1125 Maxwell Lane to shop some of the latest wellness products and clothing.  Look out for more classes and workshops coming soon.

We say goodbye to…

Pici Pasta

New to town, Pici Pasta was a fast-casual restaurant dishing out fresh pasta meals, including cacio e pepe and rigatoni bolognese. The small shop located right next to the Hoboken Path Station recently closed for business.
