Wow, you're really passionate about hating the blog (free shill opportunity - http://www.chicpeajc.com/) and chasing me around jclist for my "shilling". I hope you also use that passion in a positive way, instead of just espousing negativity and criticism.


Same as anyone on here would call out someone who seems REALLY eager to promote a shitty restaurant. You seem really defensive! So I'm assuming you probably know the blogger or have some personal investment in it. Or you just have god awful taste. Maybe all of the above?

This is the third time you have shilled for that awful blog by that awful woman.


Haha you're obviously an angry old turd. FYI quoting my post helps my shilling. Good work Tonto.


Great lawyer, asserts I am angry, old and a turd with no evidence.
Please inform me why you think the illiterate ramblings of a self-obsessed, self-promoting and, quite frankly, badly dressed woman counts as civic pride.
The entire blog is about her, not Jersey City.



1. Your screen name starts with "Old". That's a fact.
2. You have stated that a blog about Jersey City, that largely focuses on young artists and businesses of Jersey City, is awful, so I would assume you're an "angry" person if something like that equates to awful to you.
3. Finishing it off with "turd" gave it a nice jingle. I guess you're right, I don't have strong evidence that you're in fact a "turd".

Many of the posts are about her, but an even larger number are about the thriving arts, culture and small business scene in Jersey City. Revisit the blog and the posts.


Oh please- no one in JC is taking that blog seriously unless you are an already struggling business who is desperate for ANY kind of free promotion. Her blog is an excuse to post a thousand photos of herself with JC as a backdrop. There's a reason there aren't that many "JC Fashion Bloggers"- because it's just as ridiculous as it sounds! She's not exposing any arts and culture that anyone who lives here doesn't already know about (and sorry but unless you live in JC you aren't going to find our "thriving" arts and culture scene all that interesting compared to other cities). It's just an excuse for her to fill up her MEMEMEMEME blog. It's embarrassing to have someone who presumably just moved here try to promote JC via ~*fashion blog/vanity project*~.

What would you like to see in JC?


More Pride! Where I grew up, even though folks from Manhattan were always making fun of us, Brooklyn people are full of pride from Brownsville to Williamsburg we loved BK and most New Yorkers love New York and proud to be from there.

I have noticed here most people that grew up here and lived here most of their lives hate Jersey City and is looking for a way out.

The new comers especially down in Newport say they are from Newport not Jersey City. I met a tourist in Manhattan a few months ago who was seeking directions back to his hotel in Newport City. I was confused for about a minute then after dissecting his German accent I realized he was trying to get back to Newport in Jersey City.

My point is we are even deceiving tourist into thinking they are not even lodging in Jersey City.

I never seen such hate coming from residents. I think that's why our streets are dirty, and our city is divided.
Jersey City has a stigma about it, its considered dirty, unsafe, with shady politics. I think the best promotion we can do at this time is clean up govt, so the residents can fall in love with the city. Jersey City IMO will continue to be a transient city for newbies who will live here before getting married and then returning back to the Midwest or India.

When is the Jersey City Pride Parade?

Hey no one's angry- just making an observation. No doubt that it is a fashion blog based out of JC but it seems odd to link to it when the subject at hand has their own website. It looks like you link to that blog quite often and apparently get very defensive when that fact is noticed.

Except for the fact that 1) that's a link to a fashion blog and 2) if you have managed to find your way to JClist I'm pretty sure you don't need any more "promotion" for the city you probably already live in.

They do not give a crap about the buildings they rent out. There was no one maintaining the hallways or garbage when we rented from them. They also tried to tell us it was legal for them to get into our apartment (while we were at work) with 3 hours notice. I would never recommend anyone rents from them. Which is unfortunate because they are sucking up all the inventory. We now rent from a private landlord and can't believe how much better everything is. I find it hilarious that their billboards include the word "professional".

Not that anyone is going to order from there but just an FYI- prior to them opening I witnessed two of their employees casually chatting while uncovered trays holding balls of uncooked pizza dough sat in the dirty sidewalk next to a gross snow pile completely exposed to whatever random debris that get kicked up when a car drives by. It was incredibley gross and even though they hadn't officially opened yet I can't understand how none of the workers thought about what that looks like to potential customers walking around the neighborhood.

I went to Orale last week and it was on par with Taqueria. Pricier but better service/ambience/drinks etc. Simililar to Taqueria with all small plates but again, more upscale and trendy. I loved Taqueria but it's a night and day experience in regards to service and ambience. I personally thought the food was better at Orale and they are a lot more customer-friendly. Just my two cents! I definitely plan on visiting Taqueria once the reopening crowd dies down but I definitely see myself chosing Orale over them in the future. The entire time we were eating there we kept saying how this was EXACTLY the kind of Mexican place Jersey City has needed.

The way they are going about directing traffic (or lack there of) is ludicrous. They do not care that people are just trying to GO HOME! I have asked them to explain what route I should take to access my block and I've recieved a variety of answers. Last night I intercepted 3 officers before one of them told me to just drive through the cones. After doing that I hit another blocked intersection where the officer makes me explain myself and then tells me if I go in a direction different than what I'm telling him I'll mess up my car and get a ticket. This morning I had to run back home amd went back to the intersection I was allowed through last night and an officer refused to let me in again and refused to give me an alternate route despite me stating I just want to get to my own house! After stating a few choice expletives I just drove off knowing it would take me 20 minutes to find a way home. The traffic cops are unbelievably rude and unhelpful. I had one joke about charging me $5 for him to move a cone- considering he was the fourth cop I had to intercept just to get home I wasn't exactly in as jovial of a mood as he.

Gone here and enjoyed myself many many times. Never had a problem with customer service or the food. Having worked in the customer service industry for most of my life it sounds like if you're getting shitty service its because you're a shitty customer. If this is the case I fully support Taqueria treating you like the entitled asshole consumer you probably are.

Re: Fighting Parking ticket

It was on the right hand side of third street right before it intercepts brunswick. I parked right behind a pole that presumably once held a sign declaring the street cleaning schedule for that side. Confirmed it wasn't the street cleaning side by the ones on the other side of the street. I park there all the time and I see other people park there all the time, very random. Been here for two years and there's no indication that you wouldn't be allowed to park there. It was right between the corner and someone's driveway (which I wasn't blocking or even in a 2 foot range of). It really looks like the meter maid decided to just pull a ticket out of their ass and see if I'd pay it.

Fighting Parking ticket

I apologize, I know this has probably been addressed but for some reason I can't find the thread I'm thinking of. This morning I got a ticket for parking on third and brunswick (on the correct side for street cleaning), was not in the yellow, and nowhere near the curb. The ticket said "26-29 parking prohibited in designated areas". I took pictures on my cell phone showing that there was no indication that it was prohibited. Am I wasting my time or has anyone successfully fought a ticket without having to show up in court and waste hours of their life because JC parking authority sucks?

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

I agree that not all of the movies have a mass appeal- however I know there are many times where I considered seeing a classic movie there just because the theatre itself adds to the ambience and contributes to the viewing experience of the film. Additionally- super cheap tickets and concessions! Love it.

I don't expect them to show recent films but I do agree that they could benefit by adding some more films to their roster. I don't doubt there is an audience for the classics but I definitely think they could get more creative with the film selections and get a bigger draw.

That being said I am totally appreciative of the work the volunteers put in and that the theatre is still standing. It'd be really great to see the renovation of the theatre completed and be able to make it into a self sustaining business.

I never had bad service there,was just a bit confused on procedure my first time there but no problem after that. Like someone said above- you barely have time to interact with them to get rude service! Unless you need your hand held while you hem and haw over the menu. All you have to do is tell them what you want and sit down!

It means the Manhattan plague as invaded JC even more. "Technically in NJ but not" what a stupid comment, please do NJ a favor and go back to SoHo or wherever. I bet they are also the type of person that thinks Staten Island and the Bronx are not part of NYC.


That's how I took it. God forbid anyone credit NJ with producing anything cool.

Also- I've read about this place in a few fashion blogs. It seems that they are bringing in bloggers to drum up publicity yet it's exclusive so no one ever gives an address. What's the point of writing about it then?

Yep, same way culinary school enrollment is up from shows like Top Chef and the food network. Just because it's not your cup of tea doesn't mean shows like this aren't influencing the rest of the population that's watching them. Also a good point being made about lessening the stigma of boy's dancing. I don't watch any of the dancing/singing competition shows but I'm not going to be ignorant enough to assume no one else is taking an active interest as a result of them being so popular.

Obviously, lard isn't vegetarian. Spider is correct though because I have tried to order other items and they've informed me what is and isn't veg. If you ask them they will tell you what is made without lard.

I second this. I bet we can talk skinner's loft into adding this to their menu. maybe we should make a tofu scramble petition.


My only issue with this is its reeeeaaalllyyy easy to make a crappy tofu scramble. I feel like that's how people get turned off to tofu in general, they had it once and it was tasteless and then they never try it again. I would trust Skinner's Loft to do this however! I think that's the only non-vegetarian restaurant I've ever been to that has actually done tofu right. I know it's not JC but if you ever get the chance I highly recommend Su in Edgewater (by the Trader Joes). Great veg restaurant and wonderful service, brought plenty meat eaters there who absolutely loved it and wanted to go again.

Taqueria- I absolutely love the cactus tacos, avocado tostada, and occasionally they have a special (at least once a week I think- I've had it several times) that is a mushrooms fried quesadilla- it's phenomenal.

I really want to try Hard Grove because veggie friendly cuban food is unheard of but I just can't bring myself to go after all the crappy reviews.

Another favorite is second st bakery- eggplant special is AMAZING and I'm pretty sure there is some sort of crack in their pizza bread logs that make them taste so good. Also like another said above, the stuffed rolls are awesome.

My favorite Indian place to order from is Pathara Junction- they deliver pretty late (I believe 11?) and I've loved everything I've gotten from there.
