Re: Rugby World Cup

Fantastic. Thanks everyone. A friend mentioned that the Bayonne rugby team often meets at Mulligan's, but I totally forgot.

However I like to keep it local: White Star it is!

Does anyone know of any bars in JC or (gasp) Hoboken that are streaming the Rugby World Cup?! There's a group of ex-ruggers in JC who are dying to catch a few games.

Irena from Antheia also has an urban landscaping business (separate from the work she does with Antheia). Her website is www.iglgarden.net -- it says she specializes in residential works, small garden and urban spaces.

Hey there - Wondering if anyone can provide some suggestions for where to get a tattoo in downtown (shop and artist). It's a small tattoo, black & white, but is mostly lettering ... thanks in advance!

Re: Bagua Juice - Out of Business

this post is about bagua closing ... let's not use it to bash other businesses that are trying to survive in JC. and, by the way, have you even stopped by Jack's? whether you have kids or no kids the place is awesome. i bought myself an Ugly Doll just because ... and they have a TON of gift items that the other stores that were there never carried (not to mention hard to find kids toys). and no, i'm not the owner.

tommyc_37 --- no, the Daily Dose guys are great. they just moved locations (i believe one spot will now be in the Heights and the other is at the barbershop ... you may want to check their website for more info)

Marie - A friend of mine looked at that space awhile ago. Great location, terriffic potential, however the landlord disappeared in the middle of the transaction. It was for the better anyway bc the spot needs a lot of work, floods (he found later on from another shopowner) and the landlord wanted 5 months deposit and around $3K a month. Things may have changed since a year has passed, but ... just a little heads up.

As other posters have mentioned, Jersey Ave has two spots available -- the old Daily Dose spot has nice street-facing windows and just got a bunch of renovations. Also there's the old video store next door. It would absolutely be wise to walk around this weekend and check out the neighborhood. Best of luck!

what are you looking for? i buy a lot of my art supplies online, but there are some good places around (depending on what you need). as an fyi, dick blick was just having an online sale where shipping was $5.95 no matter what the size of your order.

Re: Studio 17 Hair Salon?

I went a couple months ago and got a terrific haircut from Anna. The long layers and bangs looked great instantly (instead of some haircuts where you have to wait a bit) and it stills looks goods as it's growing in. Highly recommended in my opinion. And affordable ... I think it cost around $40.

JC Downtown Business Wish List
#13
Newbie
Newbie


As anyone who walks around downtown can tell, there's a lot of new commercial space being built -- something new just popped up on the corner of First and Jersey, Liberty Harbor, Newark Ave, etc.

Sooo, what's everyone's wish list? There's always so much griping on threads about "do we really need another X?", "Y just opened up and poisoned me!" and "why can't we have more Z?"

i'll start. i would love another great craft store / hardware store. bistros are always great (the new additions like OX and bon appetito made me happy). also more cute boutiques like Tia's and Aspasias.

Re: new knitting cafe
#14
Newbie
Newbie


if caps is right and the lease is $2,500 that is pretty rotten. there are so many vacant spaces in JC that would be so much better off with tenants that offer different services (more restaurants for one or specialty food shops or addtl retail boutiques), but the landlords make it very difficult for the small business to survive. maybe this rant stems from the fact that that particular landlord at the knitting space is ... well ... pretty greedy (a friend of mine works with him and says he is a terror). anyway, i am happy to see a knitting cafe and wish them luck.

Best JC Tailor for Crafty Sewing?
#15
Newbie
Newbie


Josel's Cleaners used to have a great tailor who hemmed pants, skirts, etc and even sewed a couple pillows for me (with zippers). Now that he has left, I can't get in touch with his tailor and I'm in desperate need for someone in the area who is affordable and up to sewing crafty projects. Anyone know if any of the dry cleaners or anyone else in the area does this type of work? Josel and his tailor were really great.

Re: Jersey City feeling the effects of recession?
#16

Newbie


Thanks guys. I think this is a really interesting topic because I read a lot on this forum how residents are always wondering why some great commercial properties in downtown are vacant ..... but are people shopping at the places that already exist? mark: i'm so happy to hear your business is doing well. and i know i def watch my spending like one of the other comments said, but at the same time there are a lot of niche shops that are missing from JC. and i try to put my money into the community as much as possible.

Jersey City feeling the effects of recession?
#17
Newbie
Newbie


i've been discussing this topic at length recently and would be curious to get the thoughts of local residents and business owners --- is jersey city, downtown in particular, feeling the crunch of recession? have we as residents been pulling back on spending money locally or are we rejecting the big box businesses and relying on our local small businesses even more?

Parking Tickets ... WTF?!
#19
Newbie
Newbie


Okay, I'm the first to admit that this is my bad BUUUUT tell me if this isn't just a little much:

So I parked in the metered lot on First Street, between Jersey and Erie, to bring in some groceries this past Saturday. I have street parking but of course there wasn't parking anywhere within a 5 block radius. Anyway, I put quarters in the meter but then COMPLETELY forgot my car for 3 hours. My bad. I come downstairs and I have TWO TICKETS on my car. One at 1:39 (like the minute the meter was up) and then another at 3:50pm. And for $30 each!

I know I am in the wrong for one ticket, but COME ON. Does anyone know is this is even legal? Can they just stick ticket upon ticket on your car??? The same day, within a three hour block... ouch.
