NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — Welcome back, Rutgers students. And a friendly hello to everyone who spent summer in the Hub City. While New Brunswick is always undergoing some sort of change, one thing is consistent: There's plenty of fun to be had.
Check out TAPinto New Brunswick’s weekly roundup of some of the best tickets in the city.
Wednesday, Sept. 6
Not a fan of President Trump? Then this is for you. An “Impeach the President Rally” is slated for 5:30 p.m. outside Rep. Frank Pallone's office on Church Street. Protesters plan to call for the president to be removed from office.
Sit down for some civics. The New Brunswick City Council meets at 6:30 p.m., an hour later than its summer start. The agenda includes an ordinance approving a long-term tax exemption for the developer behind a mixed-use project at the corner of Easton Avenue and Hamilton Street.
Or stand up for some tunes. Rutgers hosts “The Hush: Silent Disco” from 8 p.m. to midnight in the Livingston Student Center's multipurpose room. On-campus students get to dance and jam to music played through individual headphones. Two DJs play different kinds of music, and there will also be giveaways, T-shirts and more.
