So the nice folks at the Hoboken Cove Boathouse are having a big fundraiser on the evening Sunday, November 22nd, with the funds to go towards new equipment for their public kayaking program.
The invitation that went out over NYCKayaker was very appealing - but I just about blew coffee out my nose when I saw that the place they are holding it is named LUA.
BA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAA!
OK, there are about 3 people who read this blog who will get that. For the other ten of you, well, let's just say that if the owners ever wanted to open a place in Hawaii, they'd best start by finding a different name!*
Oh, and seriously, for all that's a funny name for a restaurant to a person from Hawaii, the menu looks pretty onolicious, and the benefit sounds like plenty good fun, too! Tapas & drinks, live entertainment (a comedian & a Pirate Circus, arrr!), a raffle with great prizes, & of course a chance to while away a pleasant evening swapping yarns with a bunch of Hudson River enthusiasts. For full details, head on over to www.hobokencoveboathouse.org.
* OK, if you are actually curious, I did leave a full explanation in comments.
