Because this side of the river has increasingly become a place of destination, this summer’s Hudson County Restaurant Week (7/25-8/5) is particularly poignant. All of the quickly established new additions to our classic faves are creating crazy flocks of foodies.

Try something new & let me know your experience,
YAAAS, Jersey City. Shout out your Fourth of July Freedom from the rooftops, or just join the party on ground level at Liberty State Park for the Freedom & Fireworks Festival.
Here we have live bands, carnival rides, food & drink, and of course…fireworks on the Hudson River.
The best way to get to Liberty State Park is probably by bike, considering the long walk you will have by car or PATH methods. The next best option is the Light Rail. Please read NJ Transit Advisories for the Fourth of July Freedom & Fireworks Show to plan your trip for maximum fun.
See you there!
Jersey City’s waterfront beach megabar reopens for the season tonight, Friday May 13th.
Soak up views of Manhattan and Liberty Island, indoor and al fresco waterfront dining and drinking, and a sandy beach with fire pits perfect for getting cozy.
There is a revamped food and drink menu, and 25 craft beers that will rotate throughout the season.

It is that wintry time of year again where restaurants beg for our patronage post-New Year’s and pre-Valentine’s Day: Hudson Restaurant Week. Hudson County’s begins when New York City’s ends, so as not to compete for capital.
From January 25th to February 5th, attend restaurants (that may be outside of your budget) to sample each menu at a set price.
Here are participating Jersey City restaurants:
Bistro at Grove Square
Bistro La Source
Fire & Oak
GP’s Hamilton Park

There are so many awesome restaurants in Jersey City. I’ve covered plenty more than these on my (this) site, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Foursquare/Swarm and for the Jersey City Independent’s magazine and website.
These are just picks for our impending weather.
And, if disaster strikes you and not me, do stop by and do refuel here as many did during Sandy.
Be well and warm on,
