With funding for the arts cut to the bone, I am always glad to post notices about a gala to benefit our local theaters. They need our help, financially and supportively. Here’s one for the terrific professional theater in Hoboken, Hudson Theatre Works:

About Park Avenue Bar & Grill:
With an impeccably fused American/Latin menu designed by Executive Chef Ricardo Cardona, Park Avenue Bar & Grill offers stylish, multi-level dining in a unique indoor/outdoor montage of six distinct dining and lounge areas.  Our original yet historic bar opens to a beautiful private courtyard, while the chic second story dining room leads to a wonderful open-air deck.  Wind your way upstairs to the lounge, savor the live jazz and then step outside onto the rooftop; a glamorous backdrop for enjoying a cocktail while admiring the Manhattan skyline.
