So let me get this straight...Just because the same owners of an interesting bar (that just so happens to be in Brooklyn) want to open a similar establishment here, we should discount them and fear that we are turning in to Brooklyn?I really am curious what people would prefer the space to turn in to. I don't mean this in a derogatory way...I mean, what would you really like to see there that you believe could flourish?Brooklyn and Queens and many cities around the world have Beer Gardens/ Biergartens. Tia's place has stores in NYC. I don't get it.
Can we not devise our own enjoyment, indeed! You say we cannot.You and Darna share the mentality of the colonized. There are plenty examples of JC-born success. The reason you don't see "any of us ponying up the monies needed to open a clever, unique, and long lasting business in JC" is because we are too busy posting idiotic stuff on a bulletin board instead of busting our asses to make our dreams come true. Oh, by the way, WiredJC is not an offshoot of WiredBrooklyn. We can have nice things, if we work for them.

Anyway, when you find a JC developer with homegrown JC money who wants to invest in JC, then by all means, let's all dance in the streets! Until then... +1 Darna.

I know I really shouldn't encourage him, but what Kindelan said was funny, and probably irritates because there is a salty grain of truth to what he says. Can we not devise our own enjoyment? Fuck Brooklyn, indeed!
Kindelan,your continual judgment, attitude, and pessimism suck. Hard. This doesn't have so much to do with Brooklyn as it does a fun, new place to visit in Jersey City with games from our youth and good craft beers. An arcade bar is a creative idea that has prospered in Brooklyn because it is lighthearted and goofy and gives another option for a Friday night.But I guess you would rather the space stay empty. Or maybe you would prefer yet another bank or condo there.
Pss: I can NOT wait for all the awesome beers to find their way here.
The Planning Board approved Barcade's plans tonight.
Did they also approve what games they must bring in? After Burner is a must!!!Quote from: MCA on 06-29-2010, 07:04pmThe Planning Board approved Barcade's plans tonight.
