Thanks to local music aficionados Lea Noelle Simone, Marc Giannotti and Scott Katz, such a reminder came in the form of bands, art, bar service and friends out on the waterfront of Hoboken. Pier Sessions is a truly amazing series.

Vendors are on hand selling arts, crafts and assorted chotchkies. Food is provided by The Taco Truck on 14th Street.

Happening on alternating Thursdays in the summer, The Pier Sessions is not to be missed. Not only do you get all that I described above, you get it with no cover charge. Plus, get a wrist band good for discounts at DC’s Tavern (505 8th St, Hoboken) afterward.

The next one is set for July 22. Performing that night will be:

This event happens every other Thursday, rain or shine.

Beach chairs are welcome but no dogs allowed.

Donations for the bands are appreciated.
