Re: Good arcade for an 8 year old?

I haven't been there personally, I just did a Yelp search because I was surprised by the thought that maybe arcades don't exist anymore?
Anyway, there's Reciprocal NYC, looks like just a few pinball machines:
http://www.yelp.com/biz/reciprocal-nyc-new-york

Another review mentions there being an arcade at the movie theater in Secaucus on the Plaza Dr. (Kerasotes?)

You can check out Yelp more. Its hard to tell but it looks like most are bars with video games rather than arcades for kids that happen to serve alcohol.

Just checking in to see if they opened today? I think they used to open on Easter, back when they used to open... So, I was kind of hopeful that maybe today was the day. Anyone happen to walk by?

Make-Up Artist
#3
Home away from home
Home away from home


Hi everyone! I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a make-up artist?

I'd prefer one who would come on site for my wedding in October, but I could consider travel within Hudson County too (wedding in Weehawken so JC/Hoboken/Weehawken would be ideal).

I'd also prefer someone who tends toward a more natural look. Nothing too dramatic, just something that will look nice in photos.

I've been looking online and the prices I've seen have been a little out of my budget. I'd be willing to consider someone who maybe doesn't do wedding make-up professionally (i.e. an amateur or someone looking to get into the business) if their prices are reasonable and I could do a trial to see their work.

Thanks for any suggestions!

(And while I'm at it, I'll take hair suggestions too if you've got them!)

Re: Where to have the best wedding reception?

We ended up choosing a boat that goes around NYC - statue of liberty, etc. I figured the views will be great and our out-of-town guests will really love it. I love that it comes with everything included, taking a lot of pressure off the planning & budgeting.

Now, my next question - does anyone have a recommendation for basic and *affordable* engagement photos? I'd like to just take a few down by the waterfront with the skyline background to kind of go with the theme.

Thanks!

Are you kidding me? I'm a WTC girl, and Wednesday morning at 7:35, 3 33rd St trains came in a row, one was COMPLETELY empty, as if it was just going into service, and then finally the WTC train came and it was packed. Crazy, if you ask me!

I don't know. I loved the margarita pie with the old management (crazy or not, I got delivery and didn't really deal with them).
I ordered a margarita pie under the new management and found it be very - I mean *very* - salty. And I like salt as much as the next American, but this was too salty.
Has anyone else had this experience/ We'll probably give it another chance, but if it is still so salty we'll have to move on to some other place.

Hi, I'm newly engaged (hooray!) and looking at possibly having a JC wedding.

Just thought I'd resurrect this old thread and see if anyone has any new ideas or reviews since this one went quiet. I'm very interested in Loew's, just waiting for a call back. I'm not really into the traditional banquet hall wedding, so I think this is a good unique option.

For those of you who got married Loew's (I think there are a few on this board) - would you please share with me reviews & who you used for catering, flowers, set up, etc.? Either on the thread or through PM.

Thanks!

They were open yesterday (more like a soft opening) and serving up free drinks. I had an iced latte and it was very good. I think they intended to be actually open today.

Very nice place, very friendly, I wish them well.

Sounds like a plan. Let us know when they open.

Oh, and save me some cinnamon ice cream too.

CatDog - sounds like you got to keep your great soup all to yourself? Hope we'll see you at Soup Swap next year!

I finally dug into one of my Soup Swap soups for dinner. We had the "That's Some Good Soup!" and, yes, it was some great soup! It was potatoes and corn and maybe a little bacon - just perfect, especially piping hot on a cold night.

Looking forward to trying the rest of the soups!

Thanks everyone! We had a great turnout yesterday, 14 soups to choose from and 2 big boxes of donations to the food pantry. Please check out the photo in today's Jersey Journal!

A few people mentioned hearing about it on JCList, so I'm especially thankful to all the Listers out there!

And for those of you who didn't make it this year I hope you all come out next year!

The good news is that the Jets game next Sunday doesn't start until 6:30pm (according to ESPN). So, you can come to Soup Swap and even have time to pre-game before the big game!

Re: Jury Duty

Thanks, I think I'm going to take the 80 bus. It seems easy enough. From where I live, to walk to the Grove St. PATH and then walk from J Sq to the court is probably about the same as walking from my house to the cout. If the weather were better, I could walk.

I have another question: Can I wear headphones at jury duty? I was thinking about bringing a movie to watch on my laptop and headphones. Or do you need to be able to hear announcements or something?

Thanks!

We have a PUR filter on our faucet. I think it works pretty well, I drink the water and haven't noticed anything off about the taste or smell.

On the other hand, I think our ice cubes smell funny. We have an automatic ice maker in the freezer, and I think it's because we don't have any filter on the water that's being used to make the ice cubes.

I have jury duty this week. Wednesday, actually, so I'm thinking that maybe when I call in I won't be needed if we get the snowstorm we're expecting.

Has anyone ever taken the jitney up the hill from downtown JC? Does it stop by the courthouse? Where do I get it? How much does it cost? I figured it might be easier than driving.

Thanks!

I love City Acupuncture and it's not too far from the WTC PATH - it's on Fulton St, only a block or two from Broadway. They work on a sliding scale, which is nice too. Their website is cityacuny.com and from the website, it looks like they're opening a NJ office in Bloomfield too.

Expanding the inquiry a little bit: Did anyone here ever have LASIK, where did you have it, how did it work out, and what did it cost you?

I'll probably ask my optometrist who they recommend, but I'm thinking about budgeting it into my FSA for next year and I wanted an idea of actual price.

Thanks!
