thank you for understanding that we don't want the trouble of setting up uber rides for a bunch of iphone-illiterate parents while we're busy doing other things :)

will look into your suggestion, thank you!

Car service to BK

Hi JC fam,
I am looking for recommendations for a car service to shuttle two sets of parents from two locations in DTJC to our wedding in Brooklyn. Google and Yelp reviews have been pretty inconclusive. A clean/modern/new SUV would do the trick.

Thanks!

the reality is not everyone has a healthy immune system. not only does it place your child at risk, but without "herd immunity", those who are ineligible to receive vaccines due to weakened immune systems (transplants, etc) are also at risk. this is how outbreaks happen.

Anyway, I'm not really a fan of Lyft and Uber seems to be surging at times I need it or just generally expensive. My friend turned me on to Gett, a totally similar app except it gives you a flat rate. The promo code helps a lot - I took a late night ride from Ridgewood Queens to Downtown for $37.

http://invite.gett.com/code/GTXSRHD
Have you tried Gett yet? If not, sign up today and get up to $50
off your future rides with my code GTXSRHD. Download the app here: http://invite.gett.com/code/GTXSRHD and enjoy $5 off your next 10 rides!

;)

I got a taco at some takeaway joint in the East Village last year and the guy yelled "fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck youuuuuuuu!!!!!!" as I walked away down the block for not tipping him.

I should mention that service was SLOW, he was making weird vomit burp noises the entire time and I was nothing but friendly towards him.

Come on?

Darn those pesky customers.... they fell for the over priced food when they could bring their own wine, but we lost them when we started to sell our overpriced wine selections with $75 per seat pairings. They recognized the problems, did nothing to adjust their pretentious attitudes and they are out of business. There are plenty of byob restaurants still in business after many years in JC and Hoboken... sad truth is they lost their heart and desire to keep the business going. Nothing wrong with that, but blaming customer tastes and the cost of labor when you have a culinary school in J Sq seem slightly self serving, if you excuse the pun.


just wondering what byobs are left? abbondonza, madame claude. what else? plenty seems like a big word, most of my favs went the way of the license. (still upset about honshu's move)

My water was off-color yesterday near VVP. I only noticed because I was filling a large bucket, when I looked at a a small glass or just ran the faucet it was impossible to see.

i'm bummed if you towed these poor people - you put up signs on saturday for a sunday move? i never look at my car over the weekend after i park on friday. my friend had his car towed for the same reason - signs placed over the weekend are pretty unfair!

received a baby shower invite yesterday... a week later than everyone else and the envelope already open.

forever infuriated at the amount of mail i've had stolen/missing in this town. i tell people not to send me things at my address whenever possible, but when someone does, damn, does every card have to show up already open or not at all?

Re: What is best place to donate baby food?

always check that a food pantry will accept baby food before dropping it off. i used to volunteer at a food pantry in monmouth county and we had to throw away all baby food no matter what - the philosophy being babies are a high risk population and it's risky to feed a baby something without knowing where it came from.

Re: Visitors Plummet J.C. Victim

Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


was wondering if any news would surface on this - received this email first thing friday morning from a friend of a friend:

"Last night was horrific. I was walking home from Grove St, minding my own business. I heard one foot step behind me and slam. I was cracked in the back of the head with a sock filled with batteries. I turned around in complete shock and the girl who swung the sock was now waving it above her head like a lasso and her and the 2 dudes she was with started chasing me. I ran thru Grand St, screaming, running in a zigzag pattern, not knowing if they had guns, etc. I finally made it back to my apartment and fell thru the door.

We called the cops. They came over for a statement... and while I was talking, they got a call that they had caught the ppl who fit my description. Apparently they hit a guy in the back of the head with a metal pipe 15 minutes after me and he was being rushed to the hospital. I went down to the location in the back of a cop car and identified the one girl. Sat in the police station for 2 hours giving statements, recordings, etc.

Unfortunately all the kids were 16-17 yrs old, meaning they cannot be held as adults. That's why this "knock out game" continues, bc these kids are just released after assaulting people.
""game" played by teens in which they find a person walking alone and try to knock out the unsuspecting person with a single blow.

I learned a few things, if nothing else
1.) Always take cabs home. Always.
2.) I'm really fast when I need to be. I mean, I out ran 3 kids after eating DinoBBQ
3.) Be alert when walking around
4.) Try to always have a buddy
5.) Advil is hardly a pain reliever... or maybe "getting hit in the head with batteries" isn't one of the ailments it cures."


warm weather brings more crime! don't make yourself a target.

teddy's tune had changed the last time i saw him... maybe last fall? something like "nobody should laugh, anyone can be homeless!" and "shame on you all" and basically we are bad people if we don't give him money. over it.

i just wouldn't risk it. garden apartments can flood for more reasons than just big storms. when i lived in a garden apartment on 2nd st, a water main broke and gave us a foot of water and mud over the weekend when no one was home. never again.

Ladybert,,, Im new to Jersey City ,living on the JC/ Hoboken border where there is no parking at all. Im glad you got the refund . It shows that the PA will work with you not like where I lived in the past ( Hoboken and NYC) . Thank you for the update.



oooo not so fast guy. generally, they really aren't willing to work with you at all. i think because this was related to sandy reconstruction and i was trying to follow the rules, it was a rare circumstance. walk a straight line and you'll have no problems.

haha, umm, did you really just create an account to respond to this?

hell froze over, JCPA is refunding me but i still have to go fight the ticket portion later this month. councilwoman candice osbourne helped in directing my complaint to the right person at the parking authority but i had to provide pictures of all the construction permits, etc. it was a very reluctant refund because in their mind the rules are black and white, but the woman associated with JCPA said she had superstorm sandy damage at her home as well, so i think she had a rare soft spot for this one-off. generally JCPA will just tell you "it's a tow zone, so the boot is actually a favor for not towing your car." if i hadn't been able to provide proof, the first offence wouldn't have mattered to them. "it could have been a tow!" barf.
