I'm doing their soft opening on Thursday but they are cheating themselves by not being opened to the general public for a playoff weekend

Mmm, 85,000 people walking right by their locked doors in 5 nights. That can't sit well. Still, it's probably better than rushing open and creating several thousand bad first impressions.

4:30 tomorrow evening is the opening folks.

And they're off!!

Question: Most Newark bars/restaurants seem to me to be convenience places rather than appointment places. By that I mean, if people are already going to be in the area for other things (work, NJPAC, Rock, etc.), then they say, "Sure, I like that Loft47 place. Let's go there." But a person living in, say, West Orange won't go, "Where do you want to go for dinner tonight? I think Edison Ale House in Newark is fun. Wanna do that?" Can Dinosaur BBQ be that kind of place, where people who are going to need food go to Newark specifically so they can eat there?

Well the Ironbound is the exception since people from out of state do go there just to eat/drink. As far as downtown goes, Dino BBQ could be that place since it's been a critically acclaimed chain. Parking might be a problem but there's a lot across the street from the place.

And I know EAH has a deal with that lot to allow patrons to park for free, so hopefully Dino BBQ will eventually have the same deal

What time should I get to Dino if I wanted to sit and eat but still get into Pru Center by 7:30 on Monday?

I think that this is pretty hard to predict. There wasn't a line out the door before Saturday's game or anything too crazy like that, but that pregame wasn't really in the sweet spot for dining (11:45 is a bit early for lunch, especially on weekends). This will be the first Devils night game since Dino opened. If you didn't have to wait for a bar seat/table, there's no reason why you couldn't be in and out in 50 minutes to an hour. I guess you should add a guestimate of wait time to that. The meat is all deliciously smoked already, they just need to finish it on the grill. You're making me hungry, Army.

Not sure if anyone posted about Riverfront Park in Newark opening?

There's a whole bunch of stuff going on there tomorrow, starting in the morning.

Riverfront Park

Not technically around the Rock, but still pretty close and another sign of good things happening.

There's also Newark Waterfront boat tours later in June.

Saw on HF that apparently the guy who owns Brick City Bar and Grill will be opening a beer garden and 48 apartments in the building between BCBnG and Loft 47..

That's beyond exciting!!

Precisely, says Brian Jarwoski of Franklin Lakes, the owner of Brick City Bar and Grill on Edison Place. A perfect example of Newark in transition. In a few months, that boarded-up building is going to be his next venture: Eisenflucht Biergarten, a drinking establishment with 48 residential apartments above. And starting this summer, Edison Place itself will be closed weekdays to create a pedestrian mall.

I'd like to know how are they going to put 48 apartments "above" the place without interfering with the 2 bars. I'll go down there this week and check it out.

I think I am happier about that news than when Henrique scored in game 6 last week.
