Jazz at the Jersey City Reservoir, JC Ballroom Re-Opening Party, Capitol Wrestling Returns to Cathedral Hall


We know: You’re still recovering from the 3-day weekend. But block out your calendar because the coming week — and especially the weekend — are going to be busy. From the 2nd Annual Craft Brew Fest to the 2017 JC Ward Tour — below we’ve got the details on this week’s can’t-miss events.

Wednesday: Shiraz or Sauvignon Blanc? PS Wine Bar will have an Aussie vs. Kiwi Throwdown tonight to help solve the mystery. Whether it’s wine, music, movies, or all three — only one will come out victorious.

Friday: The Sensational Country Blues Wonders will perform at Friday’s Hudson Flea Pop-Up, which will be held at Nocaeb Studios at 206 Beacon Avenue. The band will hit the stage from 7pm to 8pm.

Friday: G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time) is a new variety-show style event that will feature 15 comedians, musicians, artists, and poets. The event will debut Friday at The Beacon from 9pm till 11pm.

Friday: Kick off the weekend with live jazz at the JC Reservoir. Wild Jazz Adventure is a free jazz show by the Jersey City Preservation Alliance. The music starts at 6pm and runs till 8pm.

Saturday: Taste, sample, and drink your way through the 2nd Annual Craft Brew Fest, happening this afternoon at the Harborside Atrium. There are two sessions (12pm – 4pm and 5:30pm – 9:30pm). Use coupon code “JCUPFRONT” to take $15 off general admission.

Saturday: The Jersey City Ballroom is having its official Grand Re-Opening Party to celebrate their new space. They’re still at the Brunswick Center — located at 189 Brunswick — but have moved into a studio that’s twice as large. The party kicks off at 7pm and includes refreshments, a free dance class, live music, and dance performances by students.

Saturday: Capitol Wrestling is back at Cathedral Hall this Saturday bringing you another dose of live, Saturday night wrestling. The night kicks off with a pre-match art show followed by 10 matches and an after-party at McGinley Square Pub. General admission for the matches and art show is $15.

Saturday: The 5th Annual Riverview Jazz Festival is a free, week-long music festival dedicated to all things jazz. The festival kicks off today at 12pm at the Urby Kick-off Festival. In addition to the music, there will be food and vendors by Marketplace JC (aka 6th Borough). You can get a sneak peak of the vendors here.

Sunday: Bike through Jersey City’s six wards during the 2017 Jersey City Ward Tour. The casual (i.e. non-competitive) tour kicks off at City Hall and finishes at the Pedestrian Plaza, where there’ll be beer and activities for all participants. They’re already at 1,500 cyclists, so better register sooner than later.

Sunday: The Hoboken Wellness Crawl is your chance to get in shape or spend the afternoon pampering yourself. The self-guided crawl — created by Hoboken Girl — includes over 50 health vendors such as Crunch Fitness, Cycle Bar, Makai Poke Co., CrossFit Hoboken, Massage Envy, and more. Tickets are $20/pp.
