Tonight is…A JC FRIDAY!

It’s the second JC Friday of the season, tonight, June 3rd, Jersey City! In lieu of a post trying to detail everything, I’m simply sharing a photo of the event pamphlet so you can have it at the ready on your mobile phone (just zoom in).

Since it seems daunting to tackle everything, I say pick a neighborhood you are unfamiliar with in Jersey City and attempt to visit as many places as possible there. Jersey City is a large, large city and has so much to offer. Personally, I love exploring new places and the people that live there.

On the other hand, if you are superhuman and manage to go to everything listed, please let me know and I will figure out some sort of prize for you because that is impressive!

Enjoy!
