If you're like most adults, your parents probably loaded you up with vitamin C whenever you had the sniffles or a cold. Your younger self might not have believed it worked, but as it turns out, your parents were onto something. According to doctors, vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins to consume. It might not be the cure-all for the common cold, but it absolutely helps maintain your immune system so you can fight the cold quicker. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C also protects your body from prenatal health issues, cardiovascular problems, eye diseases, and even wrinkly skin.
When your body lacks vitamin C for a long time, you're sure to notice. Though vitamin C deficiency is relatively rare in the U.S., adults who go long periods without it may get sick frequently and suffer from other immune system issues. In extreme cases, people may get scurvy, which causes a litany of issues like joint pain, bleeding gums, and depression.
B vitamins like riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), folic acid (b9), and cobalamin (B12) play a crucial role in keeping you healthy and maintaining your overall wellbeing. If you want a healthier body, B vitamins are critical, as they are literally building blocks that help preserve your brain functionality, cell metabolism, and energy. For pregnant women, B vitamins in IV drips are especially important because they help your new baby's brain develop while in the womb. B vitamins have also been shown to prevent congenital disabilities. Plus, they help ease feelings of nausea, which is a big bonus for moms and dads alike.
When your body is vitamin B deficient, you're putting yourself at risk of many health problems, such as complications with pregnancy, nervous system disorders, amenia, and gastric cancers.
Like the other vitamins and nutrients on this page, magnesium plays an important part in your body's total health. As a cofactor or helper molecule, magnesium has a role in 600+ bodily functions, including protein formation, nerve function, gene function, muscle movement, and energy production. If you're having a stressful day or week, high-potency magnesium has been shown to have relaxation properties that help calm your nerves and muscles. Unfortunately, most Americans don't get enough magnesium in their diets.
When your body is magnesium deficient, you could be playing with fire. Magnesium deficiency has been linked to chronic health concerns like osteoporosis, diabetes, and even heart disease. If you're feeling unusually weak or suffering from irregular muscle cramps, a vitamin IV session from Juventee could be the solution you need.
Just about every health food and drink in the stores boasts high levels of antioxidants. That's great, but what are they? Antioxidants are substances shown to slow or prevent cell damage from free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules linked to inflammation, disease, and forms of cancer. According to the National Library of Medicine, antioxidants also act as hydrogen and electron donors, as well as enzyme inhibitors.
Most humans get some types of antioxidants naturally through eating and drinking. However, IV vitamin therapy is a much more effective way to fight back against free radicals with antioxidants. When your body lacks antioxidants, free radical production increases, which causes oxidative stress - a harmful situation linked to arthritis, cancers, strokes, and Parkinson's disease.
Thankfully, Juventee's IV vitamin therapy in Hoboken, NJ contains antioxidants that may scavenge and reduce the free radicals affecting your health.
Some additional vitamins and nutrients found in most IV vitamin therapies include:

This February, Hoboken’s remaining Charrito’s location hung up signage indicative of closure, creating something of a panic among locals who feared that the beloved Mexican spot was permanently shutting its doors.

This February, Hoboken’s remaining Charrito’s location hung up signage indicative of closure, creating something of a panic among locals who feared that the beloved Mexican spot was permanently shutting its doors. Back then, The Hoboken Girl shared the good news that Charrito’s wasn’t closing, instead formally rebranding into Charrito’s Taqueria. Nearly six months later, the news isn’t so good — we’re saddened to share that Charrito’s Taqueria is saying goodbye to Hoboken with the closure of its 518 Washington Street location. Although the Hoboken outpost is closing permanently, Charrito’s in Weehawken will remain open. Read on for what we know about Charrito’s Taqueria closure in Hoboken.
On August 14th, a reader of The Hoboken Girl shared an image of a letter from the Charrito’s team. The owners got right to the point, introducing the note with: “It is with great sadness that we announce our closure of our Hoboken Charrito’s location.” The letter went on to express gratitude to the Hoboken employees + community, who supported Charrito’s since it arrived in The Mile Square in 2002. Read the full note below.
Although the team didn’t disclose the reasons for Charrito’s closure, they did promise locals: “our name and legacy continues through you, some expansion plans we have for the future, and our Charritos Weehawken location.”
If you haven’t been to Charrito’s (do you even live in Hoboken?), this spot garnered a pretty serious fan following with its delicious Mexican fare. Back in the day, it used to be BYOB and the team would make top-tier margarita or sangria pitchers on the spot. The guac, enchiladas, and tacos were also something to write home about (and we did, often). At one point, Charrito’s even had three locations throughout The Mile Square, including a vegan restaurant downtown, though by the beginning of this year, the 518 Washington Street outpost was the only one remaining.

Eventually, Charrito’s obtained a liquor license and in February of this year, the eatery rebranded into Charrito’s Taqueria with a smaller menu that focuses mainly on tacos + margaritas. While locals had mixed feelings about the rebrand, Charrito’s outdoor seating area continued boasting large crowds.

As of now, it’s unclear what exactly these expansion plans are, but as always, we’ll keep you updated as details unfold. We wish the owners the best of luck in their future endeavors and encourage locals to make their way to Weehawken when those taco cravings kick in (we know we will).

HOBOKEN, NJ - Girls Who Walk Hoboken started off as an idea, now it is a weekly event in the Mile-Square.
27-year-old Lauren Alberti, was inspired by fitness influencer Brianna Joye, who started a walking group in New York City. Girls Who Walk Hoboken started its journey in June 2022.
"We credit her on our profile," said Alberti. "She started this nationwide craze of sorts."

Alberti thought it would be a great idea to bring a walking group to Hoboken, as Hoboken is such a walkable city.
It all started with a Facebook post that received positive feedback, which then led to a Facebook group.
"My plan was if nobody showed up, I was just going to delete the Facebook group and never mention it again," said Alberti. "30 people showed up for the first walk."
"There are so many young people here and with the pandemic it has been hard to make friends, a lot of people are working remote. Just in general making friends as an adult is tricky. Where do you meet friends? You meet them at work or you meet them through friends that you already have. If you are moving from somewhere else to the City you might not have friends. It just seemed like Hoboken was the perfect place for something like that," said Alberti.
For Brianna Joye, the goal of her group was truly about the socialization aspect, having fun while moving with others.
Girls Who Walk Hoboken has even been offered opportunities to take classes at local businesses throughout the Mile-Square, such as Intro to Bartending. The sneaker brand Allbirds have attended the walks and handed out coupons and played raffle games.
Walks take place every Sunday at 12 PM and every Wednesday at 7 PM. Walkers meet at Pier A and head to Maxwell Park and back. Walkers will sometimes even go get a coffee after a nice Sunday walk, or on a Wednesday night head to Pier 13 instead of walking back.
"Walking is free," said Alberti. 'It is less pressure than all meeting up at a coffee shop and sittin there. When you are walking you can walk from one person to the next. If you are hitting it off with somebody you can stay with them the whole time. If you are not feeling it you can turn to your right and talk to somebody new. It is a little more casual and easygoing."

HOBOKEN, NJ — After the city "floated" three plans for 800 Monroe St. — a city block in western Hoboken — earlier this year, they've decided that the options with a pool wouldn't be viable. But two other ideas for open space are still in contention, and the city announced a public survey on Friday.
"While a community pool was contemplated during the initial concept design iterations, it was determined that the 800 Monroe St. project site was not suitable for a pool after further analysis by project engineers," the city said in a message.
(However, the pool is likely to go in the city's proposed downtown recreation plan.)
City Survey And Release
Mayor Ravi Bhalla and the City of Hoboken today launched an online survey to gather public feedback on two draft concepts for the City’s fourth resiliency park at 800 Monroe St. The draft concepts include tennis courts, pickleball courts, dog runs, passive lawn space, native gardens, a spray area, and more.
Public input collected from the survey will inform the final design concept for the park which will be presented to the public this fall. To take the online survey, go to https://www.hobokennj.gov/800monroesurvey3.
“Few cities have any resiliency parks, this will be our fourth to combat flooding that regularly impacts residents of West Hoboken,” said Mayor Bhalla. “I thank the residents who have provided valuable input into the latest designs, which will be incorporated into the park’s amenities.”
The park at 800 Monroe St. will utilize up to $15 million in community benefit payments from the 930 Monroe St. redevelopment to offset a large portion of the construction and design costs.
While a community pool was contemplated during the initial concept design iterations, it was determined that the 800 Monroe St. project site was not suitable for a pool after further analysis by project engineers. Due to existing site conditions, locating a pool at this site would require elevating it above the adjacent sidewalk grade and constructing extensive subsurface support systems to manage the weight of the pool. The addition of these design constraints, among others, would significantly reduce the future park’s stormwater detention capacity and significantly increase the cost of construction. Instead, the City is moving forward with the creation of a public pool as a part of the Multi-Service Center redesign project. To learn more about the Multi-Service Center Revitalization project and the proposed pool, go to hobokennj.gov/mscrevitalization.
The two latest draft design approaches for the 800 Monroe Resiliency Park, Meandering Trails and Linear Trails, further refine an initial draft concept presented during an April community meeting as “Concept 1: A Hybrid Approach, With Tennis and Pickleball Courts” based on public feedback.
The Meandering Trails and Linear Trails designs both incorporate the same features but differ in their approach to the park’s layout and circulation. The designs each contain various amenities including tennis and pickleball courts, separate dog runs for small and large dogs, experiential gardens, stepped seating, interactive water features, a passive lawn space, and shade canopy structures.
The Meandering Trails Approach locates the three tennis courts and six pickleball courts in the southern half of the park adjacent to Eighth Street between Jackson Street and Monroe Street. Two dog runs would abut the courts to the north followed by a sloped passive lawn space. An entry plaza with stepped seating and interactive water features would be along Jackson Street north of the courts and an experiential garden on the northeastern portion of the lot along Monroe Street. The park’s features would be connected by a series of curved pathways that create meandering walking routes and establish greater separation between each park use. A curved cloud-like shade canopy that could support vertical plant growth would provide partial coverage over many of the park’s walkways and plazas.

This Hoboken farmers market favorite continues to serve fresh salads in its brick-and-mortar locations. Any salad can be made into a wrap and the move here is to order the OG Cardini — named for Caesar Cardini who is said to have invented the Caesar salad. This wrap includes the Alfalfa mix (chopped romaine, butter lettuce, and shredded kale), free-range roasted chicken, grape tomatoes, homemade croutons, parmigiano, sliced almonds, and Caesar dairy-free dressing.
Benny Tudino’s might be most famous for serving slices the size of newborn babies, but the rest of the menu is worth noticing, too. The chicken Caesar wrap may not be as big as the pizza, but it’s a tasty option and can be made on a white or whole wheat wrap.
Known for its all-day brunch, breakfast menu, pastries, coffee drinks, and more, Black Rail also serves up delicious pressed sandwiches and wraps. One of these options is a ‘Caesar’s Spliff’ — which includes seasoned chicken, spring mix, croutons, roasted red peppers, parmesan cheese + Black Rail’s special caesar’s dressing rolled in a wrap.
For a Caesar wrap with a seafood twist, try the shrimp Caesar wrap at Imposto’s Pizza. This wrap comes with crispy breaded shrimp, romaine, croutons, parmesan, and creamy Caesar dressing in a flour tortilla wrap. Caesar traditionalists aren’t forgotten — the menu also includes a classic chicken Caesar wrap which comes with diner’s-choice of breaded or grilled chicken.
This authentic Italian deli has so many options to choose from — including a chicken Caesar wrap that is one of our favorites in the area. It’s served hot (which can be controversial to some), but that makes it even more delicious. The chicken is cut into small pieces, the dressing is more oil-based than creamy (which is why it tastes good warm), and there are croutons that get the perfect level of soggy with the dressing. HG Pro Tip: Get the rosemary and olive oil potato chips with your wrap, the two items pair perfectly.
With a name like ‘Mr. Wrap’s’ this spot has to serve a great chicken Caesar wrap. There are more than 30 different wraps on the menu — and guests can even create their own. The classic Caesar comes with grilled chicken breast, romaine lettuce, feta cheese, roasted red peppers, and creamy Caesar dressing in a flour tortilla.
With two locations in Hoboken, Mile Square locals never have to travel far for the garlic knots or Caesar wraps at Napoli’s. The chicken Caesar wrap comes with grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, Romano cheese, and homemade Caesar dressing and is served in a tomato wrap. Best of all, the wraps come with a side of fries which can be substituted for a side salad, potato salad, or homemade macaroni for a small charge.
Live music, beer, free limo rides, and a Caesar wrap — Willie McBrides is an Irish pub that has it all. The crispy chicken Caesar wrap is made with shaved parmesan, bacon, romaine, and Caesar dressing and comes with a side of fries.

Amelia’s Bistro has been a Jersey City staple for almost two decades. The lunch and brunch menus include a chicken Caesar wrap that comes with Parmigiano-Reggiano, tomato, and creamy dressing and is served with French fries. On Monday through Friday11AM – 3PM, diners can also enjoy a mimosa, bellini, glass of champagne, or Bloody Mary for $5.
This NYC-famous spot is known for serving Southern-style dishes like pimento cheese, biscuits, and, of course, fried chicken. Bobwhite’s chicken Caesar comes with the restaurant’s iconic fried chicken plus romaine lettuce, croutons, and pecorino romano cheese that has all been tossed in Caesar dressing. Patrons can add a side like black-eyed peas, coleslaw, or French fries to make it a full meal.
City Diner has a huge menu with everything from all-day breakfast fare to milkshakes. Naturally, there’s a classic Caesar wrap on the menu. The grilled chicken Caesar wrap comes with grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, crostini croutons, parmesan cheese, and Caesar dressing in a honey wheat wrap.
Helen’s Pizza is a good option to get a wrap during a night out in downtown Jersey City. The menu features more than 10 options like a shrimp wrap, tuna club wrap, and veggie wrap. The chicken Caesar has grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion, and Caesar dressing.
Sub Culture may be a sandwich shop but there are six different wraps to pick from on the menu. These can be made with wheat, garlic, flour, spinach, or tomato wraps. For a chicken Caesar, order the cleverly named “Et Tu Brute” wrap which includes breaded or grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, grated Parmesan cheese, and croutons.
Wonder Bagel is a Jersey City classic but if you’ve never looked past the bagel selection you might not realize that the menu also features a chicken Caesar wrap. This iteration is made with grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, and Caesar dressing and can be served on a honey wheat, jalapeno spinach, or white tortilla wrap.
