Re: The Hutton Bar & Grill

I love this place. The food is amazing (full disclosure, I'm vegetarian) and I've loved it all. I can only imagine the meat/fish options. The staff is super friendly. The clientele is a mix of hipsters, locals, local-monahanites. I initially thought that the menu prices were, well...pricey for our neighborhood. But, I'm over that. I have a very filling dinner with drink for $25 - $30.

It is. Been in a few more times (my poor bank account), and they keep adding interesting items - specials of the day. The owner actually came up to me and spoke to me by name to thank me for coming in. Good place.

Yes, I was walking around there yesterday morning. You can walk around the station to the back via where the Ferry is to get into Hoboken.

Re: Loew's Theater could be so much more...

I think the Loew's theatre is amazing. Sure, I'm not interested in all of the movies shown -- actually, fairly few. But, it has given me a chance to see some eclectic movies I've never seen nor, most likely, would have ever bothered to rent and watch at home -- Clockwork Orange, Phantom of the Opera (that was actually frickin' amazing...a packed house, and the live organ playing...well, where else can you ever experience THAT??), Lion in Winter, Marx Brothers movies, etc.

The movie: $6; Popcorn: $1; Bottle of water: $1.

Plus, the place is amazingly beautiful.

Thank you all of the Loew's volunteers!

The Chicken Delight on Central closed. Totally sad about that!

Re: Laguna Lounge in Heights?

Just updating from my original post... I've now been in there a few times. It's a nice place, actually. Hard to grasp the crowd as it seems to change depending on the day. But, I've enjoyed myself. Plus, bartender Lola is great. Still get my drink in a plastic cup, and I've learned to just say CLUB soda instead of just soda, but... hey, it's a bar and they're trying to make it a nice place. Also, I saw first hand two guys come in who did not meet the "dress code" and were, nicely, told they weren't allowed. I asked about it and they said they bring trouble and they didn't want that for the bar. I didn't feel the guys looked particularly "thuggy" (whatever that means...) but that's the bar's choice I guess. I CAN understand trying to keep the bar as a place that the neighborhood feels safe coming into.

I'm just glad I wasn't kicked out because I had on sneakers! LOL
I looked pretty presentable beyond that...

Re: Laguna Lounge in Heights?

I went in there last night. "Interesting" bar... maybe they're still getting going but it seems like they're trying to be both a typical JC Heights bar ("Come watch the local NFC games on large flat screen tvs!) and something classy (a postcard said things like "no hoodies", "no sneakers", "appropriate dress". Of course, there was a provocatively-dressed woman also on the postcard). I also got served my drink in a plastic cup and was asked what kind of soda I wanted with my vodka & soda ("Coke?"). That was fun.

The whole dress restrictions on their postcard seemed very odd to me. Especially, when you're in there, you can tell there is no way this is going to be a "classy" bar. Plus, really, a bar that has to tell me how to dress makes me pause. Not that I really care, just was really questioning their promotion of the bar. You really can't be a local hangout/sports bar AND a lounge. But, like I said, maybe they're just getting going. I did notice a room in the back, so maybe that will be the Lounge.

Anyway, I hope it does well. Not much of a choice in the Heights to grab a drink, and it's just up the street for me. Definitely better than nothing.

I used Alpine Custom Floors (Office: 201-533-0100) a few years ago and thought they did a great job and the price was good.

The Heights is not a "dump". It's actually a very nice place to live. As with any urban area, there are pockets of crime and there are random acts of violence.

Re: Dollar Buses

Are the jitneys unattractive? Sure. Are they the cleanest things out there? Nope. But, I rely on them. If I only took NJTransit buses, I'd be adding 20 mins a day to my commute probably. Until, NJTransit increases the frequency of the number of their buses, I'll continue to take the jitneys. Besides, the drivers are nicer than those on NJTransit. I've definitely never had a jitney driver ignore me at the bus stop and keep going as I've had NJTransit do on multiple occasions.

Speaking of NJTransit, it'd be nice if they stagger schedules a bit too... I can take the 83, 84, 88, and 125 from Jrnl Sq on my way home from work. All 4 of these buses leave Jrnl Sq between 6:30 and 6:34. You arrive at 6:35? Screwed! Doesn't make a lot of sense to have all those buses which go in the same direction to all leave at the same time.
