Pier-13.102302I am excited to announce that Pier 13 in Hoboken is open for the sum­mer sea­son. Even if you don’t live in Hoboken, it is worth the trip. Sit on a deck chair, enjoy a game of Connect 4 (it is huge) and enjoy a peach san­gria while tak­ing in the view of the Manhattan skyline.

This is a great place to bring your out-​of-​town guests; I am cer­tain they will be impressed. The food trucks parked at the entrance make it a one– stop-​shop, and chil­dren are wel­come. Mac and I strolled over for date night last week. It’s the per­fect location!

Give Peas a Chance is a local, mom-​owned busi­ness with the goal of help­ing you feed your child healthy and organic meals from their first purée, through tod­dler­hood and beyond. They are host­ing a night that is per­fect for par­ents who are con­cerned about food choices for their children.

Talk about a guilt-​free night out! Their BYOB (that’s bot­tle, not baby) classes at Hudson Table in Hoboken lets you enjoy a night out and meet other parents—all while doing some­thing pro­duc­tive for your lit­tle one. Parents who take our classes go home with a week’s worth of organic meals and snacks they can stick in the fridge or freezer. I wish that there was this ser­vice in town when we had babies.
