October 1: 8th Annual Hoboken Pizza Derby!

September 27, 2016

Join us on Saturday, October 1 for the 8th Annual Hoboken Pizza Derby! This family-friendly party is hosted by the Community Church of Hoboken at 6th and Garden Streets. This year’s menu will offer more than two dozen different pies to be sampled! From savory to saucy, there is the widest sampling of Hoboken’s Tastiest Pies. (Of course we order some simple classics for the kids too…) Take a look at last year’s menu here.

Here is how it works: waves of Pizzas are ordered simultaneously. As the arri
vals come in we record the fastest delivery time. The Heat Troll then administers the infra-red heat gun to gauge whose arrives the Hottest. As in previous years, everyone gets a scoring sheet which lists ALL the pies we are ordering.

Score as many as you taste in categories of: consistency of crust, tastiness of sauce, freshness of toppings, and flavor of cheese. It’s a friendly competition, even when the delivery people bump into each other at the front gate! Pizza, non-alcoholic beverages, and dessert is included for your donation.  This year the proceeds are shared between the Church’s Capital Renovation fund and the Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse. Discounted tickets are available in advance via brown paper tickets.

Games! Sauce! Action! (AND, the best Climbing Tree within One Square Mile! (supervision required) Advanced Ticket prices are $30/ adult and $10 per child. Special family pass is $60 in Advance for up to two adults and two kids. Day-of prices are $35 per adult and $12 per child, with the Family Pass at $75.00. Thank you for your past support and hope to see you at this year’s event. Nominations to the Menu are now being accepted.

piano duo

Join us in Hoboken this Sunday for a special event.  This unique duo, recognized as “remarkable enternainers,” combines the cultural heritages and temperaments of Latin America and Eastern Europe.  Sometimes four hands and two pianos, and sometimes as four hands playing a single piano, this exciting and engaging duo is bringing a vast repertoire ranging from Baroque to newly commissioned works for a family-friendly audience of all ages in Hoboken on Sunday May 10, 2015.  Tickets are available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1565091


Mexican pianist Citlalli Guevara and Bulgarian pianist Slavina Zhelezova, both winners of prestigious international competitions and awards, began their musical collaboration in 2008 as two young pianists in the highly competitive Bell’arte Foundation Program based in Brussels. Working closely under the tutelage of Nelson delle Vigne Fabbri and Philippe Entremont, the two immediately bonded based on their shared vision for the unique artistic potential of the music for duo piano. The duo debuted to a standing ovation at the Palm Beach International Piano Festival in February 2009.

Sponsored by Outside New York and hosted by The Community Church of Hoboken at 600 Garden Street, Hoboken NJ, 07030. Tickets available at:  http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1565091
