I think I read Mao's original post and although I'm not Catholic, I wasn't offended by its inclusion on the board.

Maybe a private message is more appropriate if you do not want additional feedback and opinions.

I find this discourse pretty interesting though, and that's one of the reasons why I tune into jclist.

I frequently check this site for information regarding cultural events around the city - including religious based festivals and holiday concerts. It's disappointing to hear that that information will be censored now.

Anybody know the artists who have done the warehouse-looking building on Tonnelle Ave/1&9? It's super fun and colorful... looks like several artists have signed it...

For that matter, is there a functioning JCMAP website with links to artists that have participated? I looked around but couldn't find anything beyond a mention of a physical map that is available for pickup in City Hall.

Thanks!!!

Anybody been to the new incarnation? Looks like a new bar but on The Dopeness facebook page, it says they've changed their name:

Seems like they'll still be doing music and comedy shows.

Went in for a beer and a quick dinner late last week and it was fine - we had two good pasta dishes on the table that were reasonably priced (under $15 each). The server was attentive and friendly. We sat in the back room which was definitely a little quiet, but the bar area was packed. I'm happy they were able to transition so quickly to the new setup. Having an empty storefront there wouldn't have been good.

I love the Neumann building - reminds me of the kinds of spaces you used to find in Williamsburg and Dumbo a decade ago. I know a tailor in the building and he's next door to a musician and down the hall from a photographer and a jewelry designer. It's a really diverse group of makers who are running businesses out of there. There's a lot of creative energy and that's something that keeps a neighborhood interesting. Hoboken hasn't completely sold its soul if it keeps Neumann going. What they have in mind might clean it up too much though. I appreciate the gritty, maze-like atmosphere of the place.

As for BYOB (cheap date night) options, Pasta dal Cuore is a solid Italian meal and Rustique Pizza is nice for their homemade lobster ravioli.

We were probably there three times for dinner and twice for brunch when it was ala carte. It was always good and a few dishes on the table were always great, but overall it was never fantastic. We appreciated the creative ingredients and combinations, but there was always something over salted or over cooked or bland or just not very tasty.

When they switched to the tasting menu, we weren't about to plunk down the cash for that. We go into the city for special dinners.

Thought it was a great event this year.
Loved:
All the bar options - way better than just a beer truck or two.

Monty's - great to once again believe they might open this nfl season!

The fried fish tent - best fish sandwich I've ever eaten and the cook Tanty provided a show with her shining personality. I even dreamed last night that I finally got the second fish sandwich I payed for after waiting an hour and a half and then giving up so that I could go watch Crazy and the Brains. What a powerful experience. But seriously, it was an incredibly good sandwich.

The variety and quality of the vendors - saw quite a few craftspeople turning out quality goods.

ChicPea - her business is devoted to letting us know what's going on in our town. She's a modern day reporter. Her love for Jersey City is unending and sincere. She definitely needed to be there.

Music - from the main stage (great sound this year Dancing Tony) to the DJ on Newark and the other stage at Jersey ave and all the other acts in between, it was a great day for live music fans.

I don't think it's that unusual: 50 Cent filed in July after a lawsuit.

Hmm, seems a bit odd all around.

First, it seems very strange that they are personally on the hook for the suit. Incorporation ought to protect them personally (that's the point of incorporating). It's possible they were not incorporated when they did that job, I couldn't tell from the article. Seems odd though.

Second, declaring bankruptcy after losing the case is obviously shenanigans, designed to avoid paying (or at least delay payment) on that judgment for as long as possible.

I have my doubts it will work out as planned, since the court will go over their finances with fine-toothed combs, and I'm pretty sure this type of judgment cannot be discharged in a bankruptcy.

Had dinner here the other night with friends and enjoyed everything on the table: meatballs and croquettes to start, the squid ink linguine, carbonara (disappeared so fast I never got a taste!), bolognese, and the maltagliati (lots of sausage and tender broccoli rabe), and finished with the lemon cake (great toothsome texture and wonderful lemon scent), chocolate cake (warm and melty), and the pistachio semi-fredo (refreshing).

We brought a couple bottles of wine and maybe over indulged on the food a bit, but everything was so tasty, we will definitely be back for another meal. And being byob, it's a reasonably priced night out.

Service was friendly and knowledgeable - some work the pasta counter up front so they can tell you all about the different pastas if you have any questions.

This is our go-to place for fresh pasta too. They know how to make a flavorful pasta that cooks to al dente perfection in just a few minutes. We have never returned to the dried stuff and probably buy from here once a week.

There are a lot of panhandlers who hang out around that building. I know that is one of the reasons Box left. They thought it deterred business. Hopefully this new place does not the same problem.

That's exactly why I don't walk on that side of the street. One time one of them had a pet rat crawling on them. Too much.

Seems like if you're a parking lot in downtown your days are numbered. So maybe that'll change the situation.

Suggestion to Archer: no tvs. We have enough bars with tvs.

my small complaints are
#1 the presentation... I know that its all fresh steamed and suppose to be "fun" but digging through a glorified garbage bag for my dinner was not really my style. I would rather see it all dumped into a big bowl or something than come to the table in plastic bags like that (also a little concerning that all the food is cooked in plastic like that..... but maybe that is "hippie" of me)

#2 we got 2 lbs of one item (clams) so the menu said that came with a free side of corn and potatoes ... it was literally one small red potato cut in half and one half ear of corn. I felt like for spending $100 in there they could have thrown in a few more potato/corn or just not say anything about it at all and I would have ordered a real side. I would have been fine with nothing but since it was mentioned I expected a little more

in all I would absolutely go again


#1 - Presentation didn't bother me at all - from a functional standpoint the bags hold the liquid sauce nicely and allow for easy dipping. Aesthetically, I'm used to the casual peel and eat seafood style of dining, whether it's dumped out on craft paper, on a red plastic tray, in a plastic basket, or in a bag. It's super casual, no frills, all about the quality of the food. Reminds me of the crab shacks on the Chesapeake, the lobster shacks off the beaten path in Maine, and those tiny clam shacks all along the NE coast. I read the plastic bags as some kind of modern urban solution to the presentation problem for messy, finger licking seafood delights.

#2 - I completely agree. We ordered 4 lbs of food and you couldn't toss a few ears of corn and potatoes our way? Would have been fun to dip them in the sauce. Although we were plenty stuffed without them.

When they show the people downtown on the mall they should also show the congestion is causes at the other end.


Traffic by the courthouse is always bad when they have a cop out there directing traffic. They do not know how to keep things moving. It's on my commute home every day and every time they've got a cop there, Newark moves sloooowly.

We went for dinner as a group of three and pigged out. We ordered: dozen oysters, pound of shrimp, pound of crawfish, pound of clams, and a pound of king crab. EVERYTHING was delicious, but especially the clams and king crab. And I could have eaten the Just Beclaws sauce out of the bag at the end - garlicy, buttery, spicy goodness.

I grew up eating crabs and lobsters so the mess was no big deal for me. They provide a bib (i wore it) and gloves (I did not wear them, I like to tear seafood apart with my bare hands). They have a big basin sink by the restrooms to wash up afterwards.

Next time we're trying the blue crab, snow crab, maybe a lobster, and more of those clams.

I drove by it around 1am a few Saturdays ago (Sunday morning I guess) and the place was packed. It looked like a club scene - loud music, dancing, go go dancers on raised platforms. I almost didn't believe my eyes.

The pasta from Pasta Dal Cuore on Jersey Ave is excellent. We've bought there at least a dozen times and haven't had a fail yet.

Sounds like you had BBQ wings. Their hot buffalo wings are anything but sweet. Give em a try.

I like the wings at Park & Sixth on Grove street - meaty, crispy, and spicy.

The buffalo sauce on the wings at Lucky 7s wasn't my thing -heavy, sweet, and reminded me of something that would come out of a bottle, like heinz or something.

Hamilton Inn wings are occasionally good, but more often small and overcooked.

I'm in favor of Fulop's plan. I love living here because we have independent stores and not chains. Give me 99 Cent Dream over Family Dollar any day, Tia's over H&M, Torico's over Baskin Robbins, Word over... well, I just order books from them instead of using Amazon, Left Bank over Applebees, Roman Nose over Olive Garden, 9Bar over Starbucks, WonderBagel over Panera, and I could go on. I don't care if the developers in the big new towers have to wait longer for the right lease to come along. I don't want my neighborhood looking like a generic shopping mall.
