Re: Shutdown Burke's Bar

"by thirstyquaker on 2015/12/17 20:21:57

I do have some fond memories of running to Burke's for a case of beer after all the liquor stores were closed (gotta be closed at 10PM, state law), and seeing a line of cars parked outside that obviously had the same idea. They kept those late night hangouts going."

Lots of very late night case runs well after hours...always an interesting party going on in there. The scene outside the bar in mid 90's was a bit scary...can only imagine earlier years than that.

Biggest NJ HS Hoops game ever?

St. Pat's (Elizabeth) vs. St. Anthony's (JC) tonight at the RAC.

#1 vs. #2 in the country and NJ. For the mythical National Championship?!?! (techinically, still a couple games to go...)

Too bad its not at the Roc (Prudential Center - bigger capacity, closer to each teams' fan base) and not televised... although is going to Live Stream it.

Whatever happens, congratulations to Coach Hurley and St. Anthony's on yet another terrific season ... er_to_heated_rivalry.html

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

I really enjoyed watching "Taxi Driver" there during 70's Movie appreciation week or whatever a few months back but I tend to agree.

I think we all would appreciate more/any options for Live Music in JC. How about more Live Music bookings. I have no idea about the cabaert licensce situation, but I remember Beck playing there.

For particular artists, that type of theatre/intimate small crowd venue could be attractive.

Just sayin'

Congratulations to Coach Hurley!

St. Anthony legend to receive game's highest honor
Saturday, April 03, 2010

INDIANAPOLIS - Bob Hurley Sr. never left tiny St. Anthony High School in Jersey City during a lifetime coaching basketball. But now, his storied career will end someplace else.

In the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Hurley will be inducted Aug. 13 along with 1992 Dream Team members Scottie Pippen and Karl Malone, a person close to the coach confirmed last night. The person did not want to be identified because the official announcement won't take place until a news conference Monday.

Hurley, who is 16 victories shy of reaching 1,000 in his 38-year career, will become the third boys high school coach enshrined in Springfield, Mass., joining the late Ernest Blood of Passaic and Morgan Wootten, formerly of DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville, Md.

His teams, known for their discipline on offense and tenacity on defense, have won 24 state titles and nine Tournament of Champions titles despite not having a gymnasium at the school.

Hurley will see his career accomplishments placed with coaching legends like John Wooden, Mike Krzyzewski and Dean Smith, and will stand alongside superstars Malone and Pippen just one year after Rutgers women's coach C. Vivian Stringer was enshrined.

"Long time coming," said Terry Dehere, one of his best former players at St. Anthony. "His record speaks for itself."

But, Dehere said, that record tells only part of his story. Hurley's presence on the bench has not only helped keep the doors open to the school, but has impacted hundreds of young people in the city.

The former Hudson County probation officer has acted as a father figure to many of the teenagers he coaches, providing the stability and discipline they often have missed at home.

Some of the names he has coached are well known, from his son Bobby, the former Duke star, to former NBA player Rodrick Rhodes. But others, who didn't play organized basketball beyond high school, have gone on to become doctors, police officers and businessmen.

"He had a direct effect on a lot of young men's lives growing up in Jersey City," said Dehere, who is a member of the Jersey City Board of Education. "To have a coach who was dedicated and a taskmaster helped a lot of kids - and I'm a living testament to it."

The news comes for Hurley, who was in Indianapolis last night but could not be reached for comment, after the coach had fallen short of the votes needed for enshrinement the three previous times he had been a finalist.

And it comes during a busy spring for the 62-year-old coach. His 2007-08 team, which went 32-0, was featured in the documentary The Street Stops Here which aired nationally on PBS this week.

"Bob Hurley is a Hall of Famer - period," North Carolina coach Roy Williams told The Star-Ledger after Hurley missed out last spring. "It's going to happen. It's just a matter of when."

The when is now official: Aug. 13 in Springfield, Mass.

Re: Five Guys in JC

I was suprised at how expensive 5 Guys in Hoboken was; buddy and I got some lunch at it added up quick...for a chain buger spot. Definitely up the ladder from McD's/BK Longue/Wendy's of the world but I would say they are comparable to Fatburger, In and Out and the Windmill's (Jersey's own)

I will miss Fatburger's milkshakes.

Re: Edward's Steakhouse

go there as much as I can. I get to go to NYC steakhouses often through work dinners and I believe its very comparable in overall quality for the most part...yet, I've never felt rushed and the environment is not as hectic as I often experience at the more popular NYC steak spots.

Been there about a dozen times over the years and I think I've had one average meal and the rest of the been great. Defnitely appreciate the personalized service.

Re: All Points West 2009 Festival linuep - Guess the lineup & WIN TICKETS!

I've seen Beastie Boys mutiples times since 92 and would never describe a show as horrible. I understand there were some hiccups at Bonnaroo because it was there first show in quite awhile but was very excited to see them. Best wishes to Adam Yauch.

Jay-Z is actually pretty good live. It helps that he usually performs with a backing band at stadium shows as well as Festivals.

JC Councilman arrested for Urinating on a Concert Crowd

Report: N.J. Lawmaker Urinates On Concertgoers
Councilman Steve Lipski Arrested For Assault

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) ― A Jersey City councilman has reportedly been arrested for urinating on a crowd of concertgoers from the balcony of a Washington D.C. nightclub.

The New York Daily News reports in Sunday's editions that two-term Jersey City Democrat councilman Steve Lipski has been charged with simple assault.

The newspaper says 44-year-old Lipski was removed from a place called the Nightclub 9:30 on Friday night.

That's after club staffers saw him relieve himself onto the crowd from a second floor balcony during a concert by a Grateful Dead tribute ban.

Messages left at Lipski's council office, and a Jersey City listing under his name were not immediately returned.

Re: Lost mail in Jersey City

lived in Downtown JC since 97...mail delivery has always been spotty at best. Not sure if the problem is at the branch or the carriers but there is definitely a problem.

I have my important items sent to my work addy in NYC so they do not get "lost"
