On May 22nd, we're thrilled to be hosting our fourth RSVLTS Meet-Up in our hometown of Hoboken, which Diddy and Robin Leach both just tweeted that it could be the most amazing, fabulous extravaganza to-date.
So...hot off the presses is a first look at the mock-up of the exclusive shirt, and holy smokes is it a stunner. In talking to John and Ben about the inspiration behind the design, they said: "We wanted to create something that embodies the culture and influences of our neighborhood, which after all includes Lady Liberty right in our backyard. The design (and beer) captures the good vibes we always have at Pier 13 and all the other fun in the sun."
Again, this is just a mock-up design, and the final product might look slightly different, but this is the direction we're taking.
Additionally, since the big day is quickly approaching, let's further break down all the details that you will need to know:
5/22 Meet-up Details: The event starts at 12:00 PM at Pier 13 (1301 Sinatra Drive N). If there is bad weather, no worries...we will have a back up plan. Pier 13 has amazing food trucks, so come hungry because we'll have a deal set-up with the Gringo's Taco Truck.
How to Get That Sweet, Sweet Heat Shirt: You need to be on the list. (Hopefully you jumped on it early because it's all sold out.) Your event RSVP is non-transferrable, the list is closed and we can not edit invites. We will have a booth set up at Pier 13, so simply show your ID that matches the name of the RSVP. You also need to be at the party wearing RSVLTS gear (natch!) to claim your shirt. Sizing is first come, first serve. Any remaining inventory for people who didn't show up will be given out to attendees, which we will come up with a proper distribution system closer to the event.
Entry into the Meet-up: All are invited. Please note this is a public venue, so as such we can not guarantee entry (therefore get there early; the Pier opens at Noon, so it's first come, first served). Also please note the RSVP list is for the shirt exclusive and does not guarantee entry. If you are not on the list currently, that is fine, so still come to the Meet Up! The venue is 21+ but small kids are welcome to come too.
Beer Swap: The night before the Meet-Up, DTH will be hosting his traditional Beer Swap at Departed Soles. A custom, limited-edition RSVLTS Meet-Up beer will be available in four packs at Departed Soles. This earlier Field Notes post fully breaks down all the details on the Beer Swap event.
Other Happenings Around Town: There are amazing places to eat and drink in Hoboken and Jersey City (and Manhattan, of course). In the coming weeks we will post a RSVLTS Guide to Hoboken and Jersey City so anyone who is traveling in can really enjoy their time here. Keep an eye out for that!
Getting to Hoboken: If you're flying into town, Uber is your best friend. It should be about $25 bucks to go from Newark airport to Hoboken. If you're coming form one of the other airports closer to New York City, than public transportation is super easy too!
Where to Stay: There are a lot of great hotels and Airbnbs in downtown Jersey City (specifically Downtown JC), Weehawken and New York City (we reco the west side in particular, so easier to cross over to Jersey).
Hotels we Recommend:
Canopy by Hilton Jersey City Arts District ($150) - this is an awesome hotel;
Holiday Inn Express & Suites Jersey City ($123);
W Hoboken ($250)
Hotels we do NOT Recommend:
The Holland Hotel;
Jersey City hotels that are not in Downtown Jersey City
See you all soon!
