Outdoor dining in Hoboken is here to stay.

City officials on Wednesday morning released guidance for restaurants on the continuation of outdoor dining for winter months. 

Guidelines were provided on safe, outdoor heating options, application information for existing businesses to continue parklets and "streateries," and procedures on snow removal.

 

Last month, Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla and the Hoboken City Council extended outdoor dining options through 2021.

“Hoboken is doing everything possible to facilitate socially distant outdoor dining options for residents to enjoy,” Bhalla said. 

“We are committed to working with our businesses to continue keeping as many people as possible outdoors in a safe and comfortable environment during upcoming winter months. Thank you to the City Council for working with my administration on these important initiatives.”

The City is permitting both electric and propane heaters for outdoor dining with approvals from the Building Department (electric) and Fire Department (propane):

Propane heating

  • Propane or any other heater with an LP cylinder requires a permit from the Hoboken Fire Department.
  • Heater cannot be placed within 5 feet of building, under an overhang or canopy, or within 5 feet of anything combustible.
  • Fire extinguisher must be located within 25 feet of heater.
  • Patrons must not interact with heater.
  • Heat tank cannot be stored inside or within 10 feet of the establishment (heater can, but tank must be removed).
  • Heater must be removed during storms or snow events.
  • Heater must automatically turnoff when tipped over. Tip drill shall be performed to ensure safety.
  • Heater must be UL listed with classifications and safety instructions from manufacturer. Personnel must understand the functionality of the heater.

Electric heating

  • Electric heater requires approval from the Hoboken Building Department.
  • Fire extinguisher must be located within 25 feet of heater.
  • Patrons must not interact with heater.
  • Heater must be removed during storms or snow events.
  • Heater must be UL listed with classifications and safety instructions from manufacturer. Personnel must understand the functionality of the heater.

Structures and seasonal canopies

  • "Food or beverage establishments are permitted to offer in-person service at outdoor areas, defined as open air spaces that either have no roof or cover or have a fixed roof or temporary or seasonal awning or cover, with at least two open sides that would comprise over 50 percent of the total wall space if the space were fully enclosed," according to Executive Order 163.
  • Shade, seasonal canopies, sheds, or other structures more than 50 percent enclosed would be considered indoor dining.
  • Temporary “pop-up” seasonal canopies less than 10 x 10 feet do not require a permit. Larger canopies require approval from the Hoboken Building Department and Hoboken Fire Department.
  • Seasonal canopies must be removed during storms or snow events.
  • Structures may remain during storms or snow events, if approved by the Building Department (i.e., for wind loading and weight of snow).

Additionally, based on feedback from residents, Hoboken has established the following regulations to limit local noise impacts:

  • No DJs and no amplified music, broadcast announcements or speakers are allowed in outdoor dining areas including sidewalk cafes, streateries, parklets, and Summer Streets. Live acoustic music is permitted until 10 p.m.
  • All outdoor entertainment should end by 10 p.m.
  • TVs and projectors are allowed but must be on mute.
  • TVs and projectors cannot be permanently attached to the structure, and must be returned inside at the end of the day.
  • Sound from indoor speakers or entertainment should not be plainly audible beyond the property line.

The City asks any business that would like to apply for a new parklet or streatery to do so by Oct. 1. All businesses with an existing parklet and streatery should reapply for a permit by Oct. 31,, which will permit the parklet and streatery through Dec. 31.

For all applications, full guidance, and additional information regarding outdoor dining in the winter, and contact information for businesses to reach City staff, please click here and visit the business recovery home page at http://www.hobokennj.gov/businessrecovery.

Hoboken has approved over 50 streateries and parklets in the City since the resumption of outdoor dining.

PXG boasts largest release to date with 2020 fall/winter collection

Stars who had babies and adopted children in 2020 Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to lie in state at U.S. Capitol Friday after two days at Supreme Court PXG boasts largest release to date with 2020 fall/winter collection

COVID’s effects have been felt far and wide, and the golf apparel industry is no different. Renee Parsons, the president and creative designer of PXG Apparel, revealed what the 2020 fall/winter collection will look like for that company this season in a non-traditional way — at a virtual trunk show.

Her goal with releasing the collection amid the pandemic was to find “places where familiar friends sport classic designs, playfully reimagined for this new world.” PXG is traditionally known for its black and white chic designs, but with new added colors and prints this season, it accomplishes just that.

This is PXG’s largest release to date with more than 70 modern designs, featuring colors such as crimson and military green. Many of these pieces were designed for hybrid wear on and off the golf course.

PXG has explored more options of men’s bottoms featuring a camouflage printed short. The designers took an aerial view of Scottsdale National Golf Club (where PXG was born), zoomed in and created a beautiful, abstract camouflage print.

A men’s polo was introduced with a pattern of miniature golf flags. The polo has snap closures in lieu of buttons near the collar, four-way stretch, 50 SPF and moisture wicking material imported from Italy.

On the women’s side, the company released a stunning bomber jacket. A black jacket with a faux-fur white, detachable collar, with a leather PXG logo on the back. They have also recreated a similar look for men in military green and black. This jacket is perfect for a chilly day on the course or a fun night on the town.

Parsons was particularly excited about the collared dress she designed for the release. She felt there was a lack of polo’d dresses in the golf apparel world and she is confident that this dress will be a top seller with its contrasting design.

The past spring/summer collection was more golf-oriented. PXG had the goal to evolve into more of a hybrid line for this release.

The group pre-released 14 pieces of their fall/winter collection on September 17, and the official launch is set for mid-October.
