Blame It On Hoboken Episode 1: Proof

Posted: August 14, 2015 at 3:00 pm by , in Blame It On Hoboken, Metro Arts

When NYC tour guide Caroline Cates decides to use Euclid’s Proof of Perfect Numbers to find true love on a tight deadline, her best friend, Aggie, thinks Caroline’s nuts. There is no such thing as a formula for love. Everyone knows that! But Caroline knows she’s on the right track. Numbers don’t lie. And she’s going to prove it.

Our story begins at the La Marisa, the little diner across the street from Caroline’s Greenwich Village apartment, where warring co-owners, Nico and Grimelda, are making their patrons feel right at home, in a prickly sort of way…
