Celebrity?

Who the hell is Mamarama?

I guess that's like me saying I saw Seetharaman Narayanan in the park.

porkchopsoda's advice is heed worthy.

Montgomery blew my wife's low profile tires out. Lucky the rim didn't get bent. Even without wheel replacement/hammering out, the tire cost was through the roof.

Funny, I always thought of SUVs and dirtbikes in the urban areas as excessive, but when you're driving over Moon Patrol territory, they're quite practical.

Good luck on those sidewall pimples.

haha. You sympathize with a thief. A lowly piece of scum filled trash too lazy or too stupid to work and save for a bicycle. I highly doubt the bike is in better hands. Then again, i can't tell if you're being your dryly facetious self.

if your schadenfreude is real...

Heights,

It's so hard for me to field your questions during this trying time. The feeling of being so violated in the very place where I rest my head and drink my beer has altered my life in a way I can't even begin to explain.

I had the bike locked against the chain link fence that surrounds the perimeter of our storage unit. Maybe the lock wasn't properly engaged as the lock was just left there, pretty much intact.

I have a few suspicions about who got down there. Then again, it could've been anyone. Our building is pretty tight, but it's not Fort Knox.

I hope I can reclaim the bike as I liked it very much. I'd at least replace the seat though as the thief probably has sullied it with their nasty gooch/grundle/nifkin/taint/etc. The seat was really cool, too. Handgrips would get replaced too. Maybe homeowner's insurance will cover it once a waiting period goes by... I have no clue.

In the meantime, and because I'm so traumatized by this heinous invasion of my space, I've found solace in my family's witchdoctor. He's counseled me in letting the elder souls take my pain away and we're doing a comprehensive shield and spear dance session.

If that doesn't work, Pappa Zombon has assured me his bone reading from the wing bones outside Hollywood Fried will identify the bandit at which point he'll cast a few spells on bastid.

If anyone sees a tan/coffee-with-cream MASI hybrid lingering around, please contact me. The bike is not common, so if it's spotted, it's probably mine.

Stolen from my building's basement.

I don't know if the thieves check this forum. If they do, I'm screwed as that bike is now some other color.

Thanks,
Rob

It seems that the Downtown/Ward E restaurants are failing but the rest of the city is doing well. Rita & Joe's along with Just Sonny's and Renato's to name a few. Although Presto's on Sussex has been doing quite well all of these years. How is John's Pizzeria doing when I went in their I wasn't impressed and the wait staff seemed timid or unsure of dining precedures, and the pizza was room temperture and bland. I'd like to give them another shot their Times Square location is terrific.


Heights, I can see what you're saying about non Downtown spots seeming to do well. Either Puccini's is hurting and has tapped into their stash to attract new clientele and leased out the billboard at Hoboken Ave/139 and The Boulevard or they're doing very well and using profits to increase mindshare. I'm sure that billboard doesn't come cheap.

Dropped by Just Sonny's two days ago. They were booming at lunch.

Try John's again when they're busy. There is something about their pizza and that of La Rustique that makes it have a very fast half-life. If it gets cold, it's ruined. John's has killer weekday drink specials. Their BKLYN tap is pretty clean and the pints are 2 or 3 bucks... can't recall. Glasses of house wine are also very reasonable during those times. I give them credit from placing a pickup order once; I LOVE their brick oven roasted veg assortment but was advised against it for pickup as it would be "not worth it" once I got home. I guess they could go the extra mile and tell people it's the same story for their pizza, but that would be foolhardy.

It's kind of OCP Robo-Cop, but I'd love it if you could attach some sort of device to the phone or your wallet or whatever that knows it's always with you by like reading your bio-rhythms... or maybe it couples to a fob somewhere else on your person that senses when the sister device goes beyond a certain proximity. The bandit will try to make a phone call or something or tool around with the phone or rummage through the wallet and then the phone explodes and maybe takes off a few fingers/ear/pops an eardrum???

Just a thought. Maybe I'll call for my free Inventor's Kit now!

jcnight,

you're SO right about the La Rustique (and in my experience, John's) in the box phenomenon.

You just can't get those pies to go... ruined.

I like Delenio because they've got one of the most original crusts around. Only had a crust as original while in Boston at this place "Supreme's" Their crust was like a mega Jamaican beef patty crust flattened out and turned into pizza. Yellow, too!

I'll chime in... we're probably in the same delivery area. FedEx GROUND is ridiculous. I too, sat around many hours waiting. Kept hitting refresh on the tracking... went from out for delivery to "no one home" with nary a ring on the bell. Called FedEx and the guy came back in 10 minutes WITH THE DOOR TAG attached to the box.

He couldn't look me in the face and was ashamed of himself. He tried to act chipper. I was like, "Nice job man"

JCSHEP, yours is an interesting concern... and probably valid with the masses' info gathering behaviors as of late.

You can hope that people use better judgement when extrapolating information from online fora, but then again, you would hope they'd do that with dead tree media as well - sadly, many do not.

Do you just like almonds or are you using them for a cutting diet? haha.. anyhow, ignore me.

Seriously though, you can try the back left of ShopRite. Produce section near the onions and potatoes - NOT the nut and candy aisle.

When I was eating loads of almonds, I got a 5lb Blue Diamond bag there.. they were not brittle, not too many irregulars, tasty, etc.

Good luck

Looks as though they're doing a nice job painting all the exterior woodwork (doors, window framing) BLACK.

Could come out looking very sleek and "executive" to resurrect a nice 1980s term.

Maybe they cam leave the masking on the windows or just do a shoddy overspray everywhere to help with that c. 1993 Dinkins-era Varick Street gin mill vibe!

Seriously though, I wish them the best of luck.

FTF, I'm not saying they didn't stock those Victory brews (well, I was saying they didn't have Hop Wollop in a 6), I was just saying their prices were a bit over what I'm used to paying.

The Yakima Twilight was $9.99 at the guy on Jersey over near the library.

Anyhow, they beat the gal over at Buy and Savings any day. In 2000, I looked at her shop at THE place in JC to get "craft" beers. http://www.epinions.com/review/Rogue_ ... orter/content_29688696452

what a blast from the past.

Anyhow, Buy Rite certainly serves its purpose. Best wishes to them.. and to all those who indulge in their wares :)

Hello Everyone,

I am happy to see that there is already a buzz surrounding my new store. I want to clarify some of the statements that I have read and I also want you to know that I am more than happy to answer any of your questions.

We are opening the store in an existing building and are set to soft open the store on Nov. 11, with the Grand Opening planned for the weekend of the 13th.

Although Buy-Rites are all independently owned and operated, my family owns the corporate entity. Hence, you will have the finest service, selection and prices at this location.

Our intention is not to be a big box retailer that is looking to put local stores out of business. However, we do feel that the consumers in this area deserve better prices and selection. Our service will be on par with any of your current local stores and I promise you that once you visit our store, you will have no reason to ever shop elsewhere.

Please reach out to me at adithya@buyritecorp.com, should you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to becoming an active member of your vibrant community.

Best,

Adithya Bathena
President
Jersey City Super Buy-Rite


Adithya,

I visited your store. Congratulations to you on the opening.

While you do offer a formidable selection of beers and wines, I find your statement, "...we do feel that the consumers in this area deserve better prices and selection." to be slightly inaccurate.

The selection IS fabulous. You're on par with Gary Fisch as far as alcohol goes. You have space and you surely fill it with inventory. I found Southern Tier brews to be ostensibly absent from your selection though.

As far as prices, you certainly aren't exorbitant, but you're nothing to write home about either. Many of the high gravity Victory sixers are $11.99 at your outlet. I usually can find them for $8.99 to $10.49. Specifically Yakima Twilight, Hop Wollop (didn't see this at Buy Rite) and Old Horizontal.

Your self made six pack is cool, but if you were to make a Yakima Twilight sixpack, you'd be spending $15.00 as you're charging for individual bottles. I understand the premium for the convenience of the six pack split, but maybe offering 15% off at the end would be nice?

i don't know, I am not telling you how to run your business as I haven't a clue on how to run a liquor store.

Your Rombauer Merlot price isn't bad by the way.

Regards,
Rob

Needed a car in a pinch to get to EWR a few weeks ago. used to call on the fellows at Budget, but a buddy of mine ditched them once, so that bridge is burned.

Anyhow, can't believe I did this, but I called a number that was on a card jammed into my mailbox and it worked out great.

4 hour lead time, GRACIOUS service and a pretty good fare.

Check the guy out... hope he can work some magic for you.

Tried searching on this place within JCList and came up empty handed.

Has anyone visited?

I've got their spot all reserved on a site of mine, but their hours don't mesh with my availability. Walked by daytime the other day and caught a phone number that was no good. Their facebook page cleared things up on the contact side, but no answer... rightly so, their biz hours are only select days of the week.

Anyhow, they're close to my house and they're within a range that my busted hoof can amble over to. Any rationale as to why I should review this place with celerity is appreciated.
