i've been to newport eyecenter and thought the examination was very thorough and I highly recommend it. the frames I thought were very pricey though. Maybe get your examination there and take the prescription elsewhere? I go online for my glasses now. Can be a bit tricky sizing things correctly, but once you get the hang of it, you'll save a boatload of money.

although annoying, I've almost become used to the loud bikes. don't like it, but am starting to accept it's part of my surroundings. what annoys the crap out of me is when they tear down a narrow street and set off a bunch of car alarms in the process. It's like saying FU and here's something to remember me by. ugh.....!

might be somewhat off topic, but since we're on the topic of falafels...just tried Two Pitas in a Pod, a grease truck that was parked in front of the Grove st path. I got the falafel sandwich and although it's considerably more ($5.50), it was quite a bit of food. One sandwich will definitely fill you up, whereas I'd have to eat 2 from Ibby's to feel full. You can probably call it a gourmet falafel also, it's packed w/ ingredients. Some may be turned off by this, opting the simplicity of other falafel joints. Overall, I thought it was really good and a lot of food for the price. Hope they return and often.

I have so far had the chicken shwarma (tasty, but i found it very "tendon-y". yuck), bbq chicken over rice (pretty good esp the rice) and the falafel sandwich (not the best i've had, but not bad).

Overall, I found things to be ok, not great....but affordable. location's good (for me anyway).

a falafel sandwich is pretty filling and the fact that you can get 2 for 6 bucks and change, well...you can't beat that w/ a stick. hope they stick around for a while...

yea, I'll sometimes stop in Guillo's late night because they sell packaged goods and I've always found it to be chill.

the Latin Lounge on the other hand....that place scares me. I'll admit I've never spent any time there, but I do live near by and when the weather gets warm a fight seems to always break out. I never wish for an establishment to fail and go out of business, except for the Latin Lounge.

Re: Best pizza in JC????

it's probably not a true pizza, but more a pizza bread, but I love the individual servings at the 2nd st. bakery.

there are reasons not to like it (the cheese is often charred and too rubbery and it's too salty) but it all somehow works.

they used to have it in log form (which I preferred) but now I think they only serve it in rounds?

i was walking by yesterday and the door was open so i took a peek inside and grabbed a menu.

the guy working on the space said they plan on opening in about two weeks.

prices seem reasonable, ranging from 2.99 to 4.99 for sandwiches. 5.99 for the lunch box and 6.99 for dinner specials...

I'm not a parent, so I don't know how the schooling system really works.

In public school systems, are meals provided via taxpayer money or are the parents required to purchase a meal plan if they want their kids to remain in campus?

I got lunch there this afternoon, and I agree that the wait was a bit too long, but also realize that they've just opened and have some kinks to work out. I'm sure they'll have things streamlined in no time.

As for the food, I thought it was pretty tasty. The casing got a little wet from steaming, but a few minutes in the frying pan took care of that.

Do they sell any frozen dumplings that can be prepared at home?

I just walked by it and it had an "OPEN" sign lit up in the window. I was across the street though, so I'm not 100% sure if the doors were actually open for customers.


Sign says open, but it isn't. I peeked in and it was a mess in there. Looks like it'll still be a while.

According to Googlemaps, looks like Fishs Eddy will be moving into that spot also, which is kind a cool I guess.

I like the idea of a good korean bbq myself, but it might be hard to compete w/ all the great options in Manhattan.

I know we're talking about restaurants and bars, but what I'd really love to see open up is a good/ clean butcher or fishmonger.

Just walked by and noticed a nice little crowd. Nice sight to see...

Has anyone had a chance to sample it yet?

Ugh, just the mention of this place brings back nightmares...

I was forced to attend for a few years when I started high school. It was like some weird mathematic concentration camp.

I'm not sure how things are run these days, but when I was attending (20yrs ago), we met once a week to do work on site and then was given homework for the rest of the week (daily packets of math equations).

Something you need to consider for your kid is that the homework is very time consuming (well, it was for me anyway). If your kid already has a lot of school work and after school activities, Kumon can be a bit much. I know it stressed me out a great deal.

I have to admit that it did greatly improve my math grades, but it also made me hate it.

just my $.02
