+1 for Union Republic. They have a bacon and egg ramen that I love.

As a matter of fact, just keep drinking jamo until Hollywood fried chicken sounds appetizing and then you can fill up on chicken and fries. Bonus: you can order just one rib! Your welcome.

And it's "You're welcome", not "Your welcome". You obviously aren't married (or at least not happily) because you don't seem to get the idea of wanting to take your wife out for a fun night. Maybe he has young children and a babysitter lined up and just wants to have a little private time with his wife out on the town.

Bar is your call; lot's of choices.

There's also the Seastreak, although you've got to go into Manhattan to pick it up, it's a nice ride. It used to also pick up in LSP, but no more.

Re: No more public access through the Mandalay (downtown)

That gate was always there. I believe, when the end of the waterfront path was inaccessible due to construction for a few years, that Mandalay opened that gate as a courtesy. It is private property and years ago was not available for public access.

Maybe try the Wood Shed in Weehawken. They've done some custom work for us before (much simpler than shutters), the prices were reasonable and they actually did it while we waited. We brought a piece of wood that had some detailing to it and asked them to make us six more. Nice people.

Bring them a shutter. Maybe they'd have suggestions for refurbishing, as well.

Re: Best JC Breakfast Sandwich?

Home away from home


New York Bagel Deli on Newark between 1st and Jersey Aven does a good breakfast sandwich. Before anyone starts a religious bagel war, I am not saying that their bagels are great (i've never had them), but they do a good job at their breakfast sandwiches. They are very good at making them to order and they're pretty fast. Online, it says they open at 6AM daily, even on weekends.

We picked up a couple of chicken cutlets last night and cooked them up at home. They were amazing! They have a sign about how well these chickens are treated and it seems to make a big difference. The size of the chickens seems smaller than the mutant-mass-raised chickens at the grocery store, but definitely worth it.

I was, however, put off by the receipt. When I got home, I saw that they had 'suggested tip' at the bottom. Are they expecting me to tip for food that I am going to take home and cook?

Buried Oil tank? So fun. I'm wondering if anyone can help me out. I'm looking for the proper Jersey City public office that could give me information on possible oil tank removal at a home in the heights I'm considering purchasing. The current owner has "no knowledge" of a tank but I'm trying to cover all my bases. I hear oil tanks can be a bit of a nightmare.

Not Jersey City, but check out Furnish Green. Their website is pretty up-to-date with their inventory.

The other guy, dressed in a suit, didn't take the bait and eventually walked away.

I know nothing of the quality of J&J's work but wanted to give an FYI that this racist a**hole could show up at your door if you hire them.

I don't know why this isn't on the JC Cultural Affairs calendar, but this Saturday (8/9/2014), is the 11th Annual Bolivian Parade. It starts at Hamilton Park at noon, goes up Jersey Ave, ends at City Hall.

If you haven't (even if you have) seen this before, I highly recommend it.

We used Safwat Taurus of Tadco 201-852-3764. He took care of permits and was very professional.

FYI, if he had found a tank, we would have walked away from the sale.

We hired an structural engineer (who is also a home inspector). It cost ~$500 for the oil tank scan. PM me if you want the information.

Re: New Place for Ramen?

We've had the pork ramen twice. We've been very happy with it, complete with the egg done perfectly and fresh veggies. The pork was quite different each time, though. The first time, it seemed like the slow-cooked pork described earlier. The second time, it looked the pork belly, but was a little tough. I liked the pork the first time better. Still good flavor both times! Seems to be catching on, too. We heard a few more people ordering the ramen as we left. For $9, it's a great meal.

Re: Live Music Wednesdays @ VB3 Restaurant & Bar!

Dear VB3,
It seems that you're going for the last-chance marketing schemes. Good luck with that!

Despite the stellar food prepared by Chef Colletti, we will no longer be going to VB3. We have attempted over and over again to enjoy a meal there, but alas, I do not think that we are in your demographic.

A few of the things that have turned us off:
- way too loud, even when we're the only ones in there and we ask that the music is turned down a little.
- inconsistent parking rules: valet here, valet there, valet no where, self-park here, self-park there
- allowing a baby to sit on the bar -yuck!
- consistently poor service (and i thought that the reality show was staged), every single freakin' time.

I am sorry about this because we did truly enjoy the food. Best of luck to you.

I (female) run this route often, over the foot bridge. I've never had a problem, although if it's very early in the morning, I carry pepper spray. The abandoned buildings on Aetna Dr can be creepy. Other times of the day, there are usually people around.

There are PlanetAid boxes by the BestBuy, but after a little research on this organization, I decided not to donate to them.

I've dropped off some stuff at a donation box in the parking lot behind St. Lucy's Shelter on 16th and Grove. (and there was not a band of gypsies there to waylay the drop)
