Does anyone offer bottomless Bloody Marys or Mimosas? The Bloody Marys in Marco & Pepe are quite good and discounted ($8, I think), and the ones in Park & Sixth is cheaper, but they put so much ice on it it constitutes to about 3 sips.


Hopscotch has a $20 (i believe) bottomless bloody, mimosa, and maybe screwdriver/greyhound. Worth checkign out if you want to avoid a crowd.

If you do 9C, try their "Man-mosa" which ads vodka to the sparkling wine/oj mix. A few of those will get you right.

Re: Hipster vandalizing Charles & Co. caught on tape

"Hipster" doesn't mean anything anymore...

If you think everyone with tattoos, a beard, glasses, a black band shirt, flannel, vans, chucks, skateboard, fixie, docs, that is a bartender, artist, musician, etc is a hipster, then really, what's left? Please give me a definition other than this, that isn't about "living of off their parents money" because trust me, there are lots of people that fit this look, that don't need a dime from their parents, do very well for themselves and don't have to wear polo shirts or ties to work every day. Hard to believe, I know?!?

Calling someone a hipster is unoriginal, lazy, boring and hacky... Really, it's the equivalent of Donald Trump calling people he disagrees with, "stupid" and "a moron" - but ya'll prob think that's fine cause you're gonna vote for him anyway.
Calling people "hipsters" is almost satirical because said "hipsters" would never use that word, at least in the context the people here do.

Is this the "cool" kids aka "preps" of yester-year trying to take back the stage from the "misfits"? If I wear boat shoes and Nantucket red pants, where do I fit? Is that also "hipster-ish"?

Just food for thought. Don't be so closed minded.

Why did the hipster burn his mouth on Porta pizza? He ate it before it was cool.


And no, I'm not the vandal, although they're one of my fav bands.

It was half elegant half pub, with a lot of character. Unfortunately the owners wanted a quicker food establishment type place as opposed to full service dining and the restaurant closed in 2008.



Rosie Radigan’s was a fun place to grab a HH beer back then.

Just to add to the list - mine got stolen y'day from Grove St Path.

I knew it was not uncommon, but since I don't park there regularly, I took my chances and it's gone now.

Going to the East District police station to file the report - they were too busy y'day to attend my call.

Now I know it's stupid to trust flimsy locks, but shouldn't the city do something about it - I mean, it's one of the most common theft that occurs pretty much every day in some the most crowded public places in the city with tons of cameras around.

Whom to contact to draw attention to this? Would it be Candice Osborne?


my slashed tire last night makes sense now. They prob cut it in hopes I would have to leave it so they could come back later with diff tools to steal it. I use a kryptonite evo series u lock.

about what time was yours taken?

You may as well have compared the Grove St. elevator project to the Three Gorges Dam for as worthless a comparison as that would be, and now you’re going on about chicken? Wow, you totally suck at being wrong.

I can't believe what I'm reading here. Do that many people really want chain stores?

When I moved to NYC in the early 90s, it was full of independent shops. Now, every block has a bank and a massive drug store.

As JC gentrifies, Fulop wants it to keep its own special feel. Fulop's proposal is good for downtown and pro-small business.


where do you live? cause it's not dtjc. Right now, that special feel is the "99 cent value bargain feel" as there are at least 4 stores with the words cheap, dollar, bargain, and value in them within a 5 block radius. We could use a lot more chain stores.

In fact, how about we propose that we can only have 1 value/99 cent store within a half a mile of each other. If we want government overreach, let's at least overreach in the right direction...


name them. If I'm guessing correctly, I can think of three but really, one is a neighborhood department store that just doesn't live up to your standards.


edit: eh, for some reason I thought you said five. whatever, I wont call you a liar. I just disagree.

Foolish...just give the people of JC what they really want. (who cares about people “in the region” aka NYC) I guarantee that if you opened an Applebee’s or Houlihan's in Downtown it would be packed all hours of the day. It would also be around for years to come. Not like the DT restaurants / stores that are opening and closing within two years. (when their lease runs out) They would also be a plus because they would generate pedestrian traffic which would benefit all DT businesses. Duh. Eat drink at Applebee’s top it off with a treat from a local ice cream shop or bakery.

I honestly don’t know how the so called hip businesses survive in DT. Case in point I ventured DT to the two new places on Erie on a Saturday morning around 11 am…. Prato Bakery and Carrino Provisions. Prato had 2 people sitting at one of the tables and no line to purchase any goods. Carrino looked abandoned…I didn’t know if it was open or closed. I peered in the window and thought I saw a human behind a counter but that was it. I didn’t bother to venture in. (mainly because I was too embarrassed that I peered in the window smudging it with my unhip hands)

I worked in Central Jersey where all of the major corporations have offices. All of the restaurants in the area are packed at lunchtime and after working hours. Applebee’s, Houlihan's, Brick House, Joe’s Crap Shack, Olive Garden, etc. All chain restaurants. That is what people want …young and old, hip and not so hip. (and you hipsters …don’t bs me that you wouldn’t want a nice juicy burger right down the street) How many more fancy pizza joints and Mexican places can DTJC hold? Let it go Steve ….we are starving for God’s sake. (I am tired of eating bean sprouts!!!!)

Let’s see how many people would venture into DTJC for a thimble sized bowl of braised-oxtail ramen soup with long beans and mustard greens from an Asian fusion noodle bar/restaurant. Versus a TGI Friday’s JACK DANIEL'S® RIB-EYE 10 ounce tender cut with generous marbling and succulent flavor.
That’s what I thought!

I have been saying it for a few months now. The biggest nonsense BS to come from local RE agents in quite some time.

SoHo West is the name they have invented to describe the no man's land are where Cast Iron Lofts is located.

ha ha ha!

I really do wonder if anyone at Cast Iron Lofts uses that moniker when describing where they live. And, if someone actually does, I would love to know how they address the blank stares and snickering that undoubtedly results from their uttering that name.


No sh!t? South of Hoboken...that's a thing?

It's not a quality of life issue for all, only those that enjoy the music. Some do not prefer to hear it. If you like violin music, feel free to listen to some with headphones, but I don't think it's reasonable that one musician should be able to dominate the closed space with only his music. In a public area outside, perhaps it's a different story.

And I dont blame him. If you only need pants hemmed go to literally anyone else in the area. No need to go to a bespoke tailor for a job any grandmother can do.

That aside, I've gone to Danny on Grove to hem jeans using the orginal cuff and had the same pair tapered a bit. They came out perfect.

I'll agree with the above. I went with my girlfriend on Thursday. There was no wait, and we were seated at the long communal table, which is very awkward for shorter folk like us. I felt like a 5 year old at a grown ups table. It was loud, and we had to keep repeating ourselves.

We ordered the Vietnamese salad, the spring roll, the lobster, wings, and the soup dumplings. Everything was tasty, though the wings were a but dry and over sauced with the sticky sweetness. The plum margarita was tasty.

But, the crowding at the communal table and the noise made it awkward for us to actually enjoy it, and the raw concrete lower\ surface of the communal table left a stain on my girlfriend's office pants that was quite visible. It really should have been scrubbed and washed with acid to remove the concrete dust, or even better, finished smooth, like the tabletop.

We'll go again, but will not sit at that table again. If regular tables or the bar are not open, we'll go elsewhere.


Glad someone else noticed this. I'm avg height and thought that table was about 2-3 inches too high (or chairs too short) as well.
