    NJ snow

    whew--it's cold out there. and windy. and there's a lotta snow. but it sure looks pretty. i wasn't ready for this storm, but then, i guess i never am. and it gives me an excuse to bail out of the office nice and early and catch up on egullet, so who am i to complain?
  4. dublin pub on pine st. is fun.
  5. no effin' way. complete with flying buttresses and stuff? wow. i've got to check that out. have you made it?

    this is encouraging. i was so sad when blue sky closed, and when i heard that a chinese restaurant was moving into the space, i wasn't too optimistic. but after reading this, i think i'll check it out. thanks.
  7. this was one of my favorites for a long time. not so much lately, tho. i'm going to have to check out this Hop Hazard from NJ.

    yup. had one last night. the mini-burger could be yet another burger club sub-genre...

    it was a segment on fox news or something. they interviewed the chef about the burger, showed the burgers cooking on the grill, and also showed a burger plated with fries.

    rachael ray claims this place has the best burger in NY. elyse, it's $12--is that an unacceptable price point for BC?
  21. lucky you! i'm going twice next year so be sure to give us a nice detailed report of your adventures. and, speaking of adventures, don't forget to visit bourdain's contributions to the "most creepy and disgusting dive bar" thread (yes, i dug them up just for you): 1) Snake and Jake's Christmas Club Lounge, New Orleans. God, I love this place. Dark, skanky, Christmas motif, and naked people drink for free. 2) Checkpoint Charlie's, New Orleans. Get hammered while the blood and hair from last night are washed in the convenient in-house laundromat!
  22. have you been to The Petite Cafe in Nutley (BYO)? they serve dinner thurs through saturday. click on "menus" and then "dinner specials" to see their weekly specials (last weekend's are still up, but you'll get a sense of their style).
