The last time I was in there the tray had a tube coming from it that ran behind the bar. I can only imagine the tube was there to drain whatever liquid accumulates in the tray.

I wasn't trying any of the drink specials that day.

GoldenCicada is a great place to go if you're an older gent that wants to sit around somewhere really quiet with a couple of other older guys drinking some whisky and watching a tv.

It is not a great place to go in any other sense. But I do know a couple people that love it there for that reason. Crazy Chester might be one of those people. Certainly not a singles bar. Certainly not a bar for anyone other than those select few. And as far as I can tell, there's no wii or dumplings. There is, however, a ceiling tile that's been replaced with one of those aluminum buffet trays.

This is a very important question many forget to ask...
Most facilities are not staffed 24 hours and the dogs are crated over night, which is not an issue for most but best to always ask if this is a concern.

Boca has been great for us. Not only are we happy, but our dog is happy. Seriously!

She runs in there without looking back at us when we hand over the leash. Scarlet is all luvy-duvy when we pick her up, but she also says good bye to the staff there, and runs up to them for cuddles before we leave.

We've been using them for a year and a half, from when she was a puppy, and they know her well now. Even as they were getting to know her, they have always been attentive, and took the special attention she needed once with some medicine she was on during one stay.

Many times, when we want to gallivant, we drop of the pooch so that she's all tuckered out when we get home. We used to love the pick up service, yet Jarred (owner) called us and told us from deep concern that she couldn't ride the bus anymore. Turns out our rascal gets car sick, and made a mess of herself each time. Poor Puppy. She would run off with Jose each time he came to our door, so we didn't know that she would turn from red to green by the time she reached their doorstep.

Couldn't say enough of Boca, they are great! People are great, and I think it's because Jarred hires staff that doesn't just come to work for a pay check, but really loves the animals they care for.

Yes, Graceland was the previous daycare/boarding place in this location and it was horrid:

I know some folks report positive experiences with commercial boarding facilities but I always prefer small private in-home pet care options. Or better yet, if an option, friends or family caring for your pet :)

That's terrible.

The Hoboken Unleashed staff and facility are excellent. They are also involved in local rescue and have been very proactive in saving homeless animals.

I know the manager, Charles, and he would have fired this individual. I will mention the incident to him, but without specifics, I am not sure that anything can be done.

Bocas is a great facility, and there are also some people in town that do a great job boarding dogs.

Jersey City switching to flashing traffic lights to cut pollution, speed traffic

By The Jersey Journal
December 02, 2009, 1:51PM

Jersey City plans to switch to flashing traffic lights at 44 intersections to cut pollution and speed traffic.

Traffic lights at 44 intersections in Jersey City are switching from solid reds and greens at night to flashing reds and yellows.

The idea is to improve traffic flow and lessen pollution, said Municipal Engineer Bill Goble.

At present, some of these intersections switch to flash mode from midnight to 5 a.m.

The new program would move up the start time to 9 p.m.

The intersections that were chosen are quiet and have not had any fatal or dangerous accidents in the past four years, officials said.

After 60 days each intersection will be evaluated to see if the change improved the flow of traffic, Goble said.

The major thoroughfares will be given the flashing yellow lights, which requires motorists to yield and proceed with caution.

The minor roadways will be given the flashing red, the equivalent of a stop sign, Goble said.
Technicians have already begun making the switch, but Goble didn't know yesterday when they would finish.

Not everyone is a fan of change.

Frank DeBellis who lives on Mallory Avenue, where four intersections will switch to flashing lights, said he first noticed the change on Nov. 20.

"I just think it's too early (9 p.m.)," DeBellis said. "You got an accident in the making."

The intersections in Jersey City switching to flashing lights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. are:

1) Baldwin Ave. & Mercer St.
2) Baldwin Ave. & St. Paul's Ave.
3) Beacon Ave. & Oakland Ave.

13) Grove St. & 16th St.
14) Jersey City Blvd. & Phillip St.
15) Mallory Ave. & Boyd Ave.
16) Mallory Ave. & Clarke Ave.
17) Mallory Ave. & Clendenny Ave.
18) Mallory Ave. & Virginia Ave.
19) North St. & Nelson Ave.

Re: Downtown JC Churches - Reviews

Just can't stay away


As Heights said above: "don't forget about the [ancient] Latin Mass offered every Sunday at Holy Rosary on 6th Street according to the Order of Melchisideck. There is nothing new under the sun, and, indeed, this liturgy on 6th Street would be recognizable to any citizen of the Western Roman Empire from about 100 AD onward. In addition, the Eucharistic sacrifice is offfered with sign and symbol fashioned by the creative genius of two millenia. In particular, the music, from the plain chant of the propers to the full polyphonic or symphonic masses communicate transendance. This is not a circle closed in open itself, or substituting good works for faith, this is the worship of the Lord in awe and trembling and thanksgivng. (BTW, Midnight Mass at Christmas will bring heaven to earth in a liturgy that will be more Roman than the Romans).

And yes, there is default rejection of dogma today. Is everyone going to become a Buddhist fashioned according to his own agenda? And for those who think this is something new, consider Dorothy Sayers writing in the 1940s:


It is worse than useless for Christians to talk about the importance of Christian morality unless they are prepared to take their stand upon the fundamentals of Christian theology. It is a lie to say that dogma does not matter; it matters enormously. It is fatal to let people suppose
that Christianity is only a mode of feeling; it is vitally necessary to insist that it is first and foremost a rational explanation of the universe. It is hopeless to offer Christianity as a vaguely idealistic aspiration of a simple
and consoling kind; it is, on the contrary, a hard, tough, exacting, and complex doctrine, steeped in a drastic and uncompromising realism. And it is fatal to imagine that everybody knows quite well what Christianity is and needs only a little encouragement to practice it. The brutal fact is that in this Christian country not one person in a hundred has the faintest notion what the Church teaches about God or man or society or the person of Jesus Christ.

-Dorothy Sayers in “Creed or Chaos?”

Thus begins essay number four in “Letters to a Diminished Church.” This essay was the title piece of a collection of essays Sayers published under the same title in the late 1940s. Yes, that’s right, sixty years ago. (By the way, you may have noticed I skipped over the third essay in he book. Its title is “Creative Mind,” and while it was interesting in its own right, I have yet to figure out exactly what the editor thought it had to do with arguing the relevance of Christian doctrine.)

And this is only the beginning. Sayers goes on to elaborate on the nature of the ninety-nine percent with a razor sharp perceptiveness and prophetic relevance to us that will take your breath away. She describes three classes of people: frank and open heathens, whose ideas about Christianity are a jumble of “rags and tags of Bible anecdotes and clotted mythological nonsense;” ignorant Christians, whose idea of Jesus is based on a mild, gentle sentimentality combined with “vaguely humanistic ethics” that she associates with the Arian heresy; and, finally, more-or-less instructed churchgoers, who know what the Bible says about some things, but whose battle readiness on fundamentals against a Marxian atheist or a Wellsian agnostic is comparable to “a boy with a peashooter facing a fan-fire of machine guns.”

This is unbelievably good, relevant, challenging stuff for us to soak in. Besides Sayers wonderful skill with words, her laser focus on perhaps the most crucial issue for the church of our day make her work must reading for all of us. We have two choices–two ways–creed or chaos. There are no other options.
