OK, then City Diner.. or a host of other spots. If you want to extend into Hoboken, then La Isla, the Malibu Diner and the Spa should be mentioned.

Who the heck doesn’t include the Brownstone and instead adds a corporate place like Turning Point, or a lousy one like Greek From Greece (and I say that as a Greek).

The writer of that article has no taste.

Rank 45. Talde
8 Erie St.
Some saw the arrival of Top Chef star Dale Talde's restaurant as a sign that Jersey City had solidified itself as a foodie destination. While the city certainly has made its mark, it's not because of Talde, which leans more on its style than substance. The ornate decor is impressive, but the pan-Asian fare is disappointing and overpriced. The dumplings we had were lukewarm and blue crab fried rice tasted more like mayonnaise fried rice. Talde was one of the biggest letdowns of this list; the first few times I came here (when it first opened in 2015) it was stellar. Whatever happened, the quality has declined — its no longer in elite company.


The writer is being too generous, this place is absolute sht - vomit in the mouth. Every dish is crap, most are so salty we have to wash it in water before they become edible.

Coming from a chinese family who loves their food, I have had many authentic asian dishes from various countries in asia / flushing / chinatown, as well as accepted the "asian fusion" fad of americanizing certain type of asian food - if done right they are decent.

But not this place, not even remotely close, can honestly say it's the worst "asian" restaurant I have ever been to, and I have been to many pretty crappy restaurants.

The food is just no edible, it constantly amazes me as I walk by that place every day how it manages to stay open. Maybe people are just going there to talk and drink? Because the food is disgusting, never mind the price.


Agreed. I went once when it first opened, when people said it was still OK. The food was overly salty and sweet, and the unfinished concrete on the underside of the communal table ruined my wife's pants.

This style can be uses with the legs over a low fire, or with the legs folded away for a steel fire ring. Get the extra large for extra room for a pan and burgers/franks at the same time.

Cast iron is your best bet. I use a standard Lodge 10" pan when I camp with a bigger group.

For mess kits, I like stainless steel. They clean up easily and there is not waste. You can get these for two people at a time, and the carrying case makes it easy to pack.

https://www.amazon.com/Camping-Silverw ... stain%2Caps%2C125&sr=8-10\

For a pot, get either a cast iron dutch oven, or a two quart stainless pot.

But if it's just for the weekend, don't pack too much stuff. Plan your menu, and bring only what you need.

When I went camping with a big group or twelve, we had a whole mess tent with a three burner stove and 40 pound griddle, as well as pans, a grate and dutch oven. But for a family of four a cast iron pan, a grate and a two quart camp pot would be my goto items.

Still not an excuse for abridging a constitutional right. It's an orthogonal point at best, a red herring at worst.

Here's the more obvious question - why is Senator Cunningham even bothering with this B.S. ? This is another case of cart before the horse.

Voter turnout among people who actually are allowed to vote in the USA is abysmal - around 55% in national elections (49% in the 1996 presidential election!). Even less in local elections that don't run concurrently with national elections - Jersey City mayoral and city council races of 25, 30% if we're lucky. Former mayor Healy loved the low turnout because it's exactly what kept him in office for three terms. When turnout went up a few percentage points more in 2013, it was enough to get him out of office. School board elections? Unless they are concurrent with some other election, fuhgeddaboudit.

If turnout is so pitiful among people with clean background checks, can you imagine the turnout among people who have felonies on their record, can't find jobs and some of whom (not all) are contemplating a return to crime? This whole effort is a total waste of time and won't bring very many more people to the polling stations.

Rather than focusing on something that will do nothing, politicians and their constituents should be focusing on increasing voter turnout in this country and strive for the 70 to 80% levels that Canada and Europe have had (maybe not quite that high now but I can assure you both places are still significantly higher than the United States). Then we reach the voter turnout levels we should be having, that's when this issue should be addressed. Of course no politician is going to make an effort toward such a goal unless it increases their own chances of being elected.

Canada and Europe don't criminalize such a huge number or people we do. Even China and Iran don't.

I did not know that there were constitutional amendments protecting the right to drive.

When felons can't vote, people who those in power don't want to vote are made int felons. Lots of terrible sentencing guidelines and mandatory sentences, and uneven enforcement.

People like you should not get the right to call themselves American.

And either you are lying, or your civics teachers were terrible.

Sometimes it takes a few tries to get all the air out. Air may be trapped in lower radiators, ans as you bleed and water cycles in, the air from lower units/rooms will work it's way up. Then you can bleed again.

Re: The SUV Phenomenon

Home away from home


Newer SUVs are not prone to rollover due to them having a lower center of gravity than trucks had historically. Many SUVs are now just dressed up minivans built on car like platforms.

The issue is not so much the SUVs themselves but the drivers. Many of them just don't know how to drive in an urban environment. The parkign authority should also restrict the last few spots on the street by each corner from being allowed for SUVs. They cut off too much visibility at stop signs.

Try looking at Luxury Vinyl Tile.

It has better wear and water resistance than laminate, doesn't crack, has a lot of different patterns and styles, and is not very expensive.

Re: Can anyone suggest a good eviction lawyer in Jersey City?
#14

You won't be able to get him out until he has not paid at least one month's rent. Then after you file in landlord-tenant court, it will take a month to get a hearing, as which he can either pay rent owed, or hand over his keys and break the lease.

That's basically the only remedy. There is no prospective eviction for rent not due yet.

The county has less income, so it's debt is a heavier load to bear.

Notorious RBG makes Christie look like a punk bitch.

And I guess a scumbag would celebrate someone getting injured, especially one foe which it would be especially dangerous.

But, she's back to work already. So fuck the haters.

One legislature cannot bind a future one. Whatever one council can pass, the next can repeal. It's a stupid idea to think they can do that.

You do realize there is a much higher proportion of gay men in the Church than there is in the general population, partially because Catholics like yourself force them to be closeted? You do also realize that many male on male sex crimes are not gay, but are based on availability ad power?

Go read a non-fucked up book for a change.

Liberal and liberal Catholic are not the same thing. These people still support the Church itself, which has been corrupt.

Another article calls the entire church structure corrupt, and that many traditions of the church, like celibacy, should be changed.

People who do not agree get to see their preferences go away. Grind conservative backwardness into dust.

Did you even listen to the interview? It's in context. It's collateral damage to conservatism for supporting equal rights, economic progressiveness, and actually giving a shit about the environment.

But you just read snippets in some right wing rag.. right?

Someone has been reading fictional conspiracy theories as reality.

Let me guess, "Aa-1025: The Memoirs of a Communist's infiltration in to the Church", a hack job piece of fiction for those opposed to Vatican II.
