Nope, they're generic. You just scratch off the date that you want to activate them on.

I'm in sore need of a single temporary parking permit for tomorrow (Tuesday), and won't be able to run down to Central Ave to pick one up tomorrow. I miscalculated how many I'd need and used my last one today. Anyone near Hamilton Park have a spare one that I could buy from you on Tuesday morning? I'd gladly pay more than the face value of 3$. Email me at dsj@jurnove.net, or PM me here. Thanks!

My wife recently (Aug 2011) gave birth to our second child at Overlook, during the hurricane, no less. Our first was born at St Luke's Roosevelt in NYC. The difference between the two hospitals was night and day - like going from one of those crappy hooker motels on Rt 1 & 9 (i.e. St Luke's) to the ritziest hotel you could imagine in NYC (Overlook). Overlook was, hands down, the best hospital experience either of us has ever had. Amazing staff (especially Nurse Anna in L&D!), amazing facility, just everything there was amazing. I cannot recommend Overlook enough.

I ate their for lunch today - the falafel was very good! The owner was very friendly too, handing out free samples of their freshly made turnip pickles and falafel to the people waiting in line. Great place.

Nice little store. My son was very happy to take home a bag of gummies. I wish they had some higher quality chocolates, though - truffles, or something similar would be nice.

Mock duck is made from "yuba", aka "tofu skin", which is made from boiling soy milk. A thin film forms on top of the boiled soy milk, which are collected together and rolled up into a sheet. Doesn't sound that appealing, but it's pretty tasty.

Ate here last night - thought it was decent. I had the Curry Noodles with Tofu. The broth was tasty, but the noodles were a bit overcooked, and it could have used more vegetables than just 2 chunks of potato and 2 pieces of bok choy. Still, I enjoyed the meal. My wife had the bento box with the vegetarian duck w/basil, which was also good.

We both enjoyed it and definitely plan on returning.

I believe they've got another big organized ride in the works. My wife is involved with the JC Mom's group, and they were approached a few weeks ago by Bike JC to help out in organizing a separate children's ride. I don't know what came of it, if anything, but presumably the event is still being planned.

Edit: the Bike JC website mentions the 2011 Ward Tour is in the works.

Has Hamilton Inn brought back their veggie burger? They used to make a very good homemade one, and it was nicely prepared and very very tasty.

My wife and I were going there about once a month to have it, but stopped going once they removed it from the menu (as there was nothing left that was vegetarian, except the pizza which was not good).

We spoke to the manager about it, and was told that "a lot of people were asking about it", but that they didn't plan on bringing it back.

Rental space for community group? Open 'til midnight on weeknights?
#12

Not too shy to talk


I'm looking for a rental (or free, but not getting my hopes up for that one) space in JC (or Hoboken), near the PATH for a community group to use one or two weeknights a month. Hours would ideally be fro 6pm-midnight, and would be for a group of 20-30 people and have chairs and tables for us to use. Does anyone know of anything that fits the bill?

In LSP, I've gone as far as the end of the Point Liberte development - how much further does the boardwalk/bike path go? It would be nice if there was somewhere online that had a map of the boardwalk, but I can't seem to find one anywhere.

Yes, I've biked through Liberty State Park many a time (that's the "south along the waterfront" option I mentioned above).

As far as the Palisades, I'd love to try that sometime, but I usually only have an hour to an hour-and-a-half to go biking (i.e. during my son's naptime). In that time frame and at my pace, I can probably make it to the start of the Pallisades and back home. I haven't gone that far yet (I've only gone as far as the middle of Weehauken), but maybe I'll try that out this week. Thank you for the suggestion!

#15

Not too shy to talk


I usually ride my bike (for recreation) 2 to 3 times a week. Other than heading north or south along the waterfront pathway, what other good, fun, not entirely crappy routes are there? I don't mind riding on the street as long as it's not on the side of a very busy road like Rt 1&9, or something similar.

Is there a decent way to get to Branch Brook park in Newark?

Car booted - no outstanding tickets, when can they legally boot?
#16
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I parked my rental car on the street in a Zone 5 2hr parking spot yesterday, and put a properly scratched off temporary parking pass in the window. I forgot to go out this morning and put a new pass in the window, and when I went out, the car was booted with one ticket on the windshield. Ticket fine was $42, boot fine was $110.

Additionally, while trying to get the boot removed (over the phone), it turns out a number of details were wrong on the boot notification form. License plate # was wrong (a Z instead of a 7) and there was no P.E.O. ID #.

Were these legal conditions under which my car could have been booted? Do I have any recourse? Will the technicality of the wrong license plate # and incorrectly filled out form get me anywhere?

No luck at Morton Williams, but I did get a nice loaf of olive bread. Ended up getting them at C-Town. Pickings were slim, but I got enough for my recipe (Green Corn Soup - corn chowder with cilantro and tomatillos blended in, very tasty!)

Thanks!

Re: Crossing Marin to Get to The Mall

It's also very dangerous (and annoying) that people do not stop at the stop sign at 6th and Marin, heading away from the mall. It's a pain to cross there when there's traffic, as it seems that only about 1 in 20 cars actually stop at the stop sign before turning onto Marin.

Sapthagiri is great - if you get the thali, they'll give you as many refills on the little dishes as you want, plus 2 more chapati. of course, you get so much food to begin with that it's hard to finish what they give you. at $9.99 it's a great bargain.

Re: What streets have the best christmas lights?

We found some nice ones in our neighborhood, Hamilton Park. One 5th at Monmouth there's a ridiculously large display, complete with animated Santas, a polar bear and a countdown clock. My kid loved it. On 8th at Monmouth, most of the houses on the block have really nice, tasteful lights. Very pretty - lots of big paper lanterns, kind of magical.

Garbage collection - will they take a 3' diameter metal table?

I have an old metal outdoor table to get rid of (left behind by the previous tenants in my apartment). It's approximately 3 1/2' or so in diameter. Will garabge collection take this? Or will I have to get rid of it some other way? Other than dumping it on the side of Rt 1/9 (just kidding, of course) what are the options?
