I swore to boycott Loews plaza built on the fairgrounds/racetrack.  :puke:

 

We live in Hunterdon.. and are about to get a pick up!  :uni:

 

There is no ethnic food here - no chinese no Indian.  There is thai in Lambertville.  you have to haul ass up North, what, to Sussex before you get decent German.  There use to be a great German place on 22.

 

Matt's Red Rooster is really good.  Cook-to-order in Flemington sort of across from Home depot is good enough - spotty though.  Lambertville has some good places.  I haven't eaten at Frenchtown Inn or whatever it is... I used to love the Union Hotel.  I really hope the new owners can make a go of it.

 

and I love WDVR!  Heehee!  Seargentsville Inn - another spotty but good. Never ate at Milford Oyster House.  Haven't tried the new Ryland Inn yet either.

 

(Removed redundant rant on nouveau rich in Hunterdon who are still better than the self-important overworked over-sheltered nouveau in Somerset - the driving of each set says it all - they're faster more rude and more brainlessly self important up in Morris/Somerset.)

 

 

Hey - BBQ on 31 - that's a good Applebees replacement.  I hate catering to chains.

We're practically neighbors then, though I'm only in Annandale in mailing address, I'm really Clinton Twp. Nature is great here, that you cannot deny. I will say I love the bike trail from HB to Califon. It goes for like 15 miles total. Just hope that gas pipe, that is the reason that trail is maintained, doesn't explode, lol. I also don't understand why Clinton Twp thought now was the time to allow a giant gas pipe to be installed under a bunch of homes. You can see them putting it in by Payne Rd off 31 before you get to Lilac. I feel awful for anyone already underwater in their mortgage in those areas. I, for some reason, can't foresee a gas pipe under or next to their home helping them out any, lol. I could probably go on for days as to why I dislike this area, which has as much to do with the people as it does the lack of things to do around here.


And yeah, all those theaters are about equidistant from Annandale, just about 20 mins drive with no traffic. I just don't understand why I can't have lunch delivered to my home/office, have more than 1 option for post midnight dining or have a bar that isn't terrible. We don't even have a bowling alley. I'm pretty sure it's requirement to have a bowling alley in order to be small town in the US, just not in this one....

 

Tearing that place down was a travesty and I still hope that whole plaza burns down one night. Did it have to be a Wally World? Ugh.

Edit: Sorry I took this real off topic. At least it was a fairly off topic thread, right?

 

Same here, as far as the Annandale/Clinton Twp thing goes...mailing address is Annandale, but I don't really live in what is truly Annandale.  I'm in a neighborhood off Leigh Street.  It's a little bit of a trek by foot, but I can walk into the town of Clinton without much fuss.  Still haven't gone to the Red Mill Museum yet.

 

Re:  Flemington Racetrack...I went there for a carnival event back in the summer of 1988 (I was 18 and had just graduated high school), but never saw a race there.  Wish I had.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Hey - BBQ on 31 - that's a good Applebees replacement.  I hate catering to chains.

I ate at BBQ on 31 when it first opened and I recall there being more flies than I had ever seen in a restaurant. Never went back. Which is a shame because if there weren't trees, I could see it from my house. Though I guess BBQ has done better than the last couple places that inhabited that building, steakhouse guy got killed, first murder in Clinton in how long?

http://www.nytimes.c...-in-murder.html - Actually pretty interesting stuff. Does anyone know if they ever solved it? I know there were rumors of it being family, etc, but I don't recall if they ever caught anyone. Now it's ten years later. I've actually seen his house(from a distance) and there is NO WAY anyone sneaks up on you there or even goes up the REALLY long driveway to rob his house, which you can't see from the street. I would have to assume he was done in by family or friend.

Before that it was something else, I can't recall exactly, it didn't last too long though.

There's not even options for good chinese in Clinton Twp or the surrounding area, it's peking wok or someplace that isn't as good. Pru Thai is ok, it's eh though, not great, kinda pricey. I do like Aikou in Flemington, in the Pier One/Staples plaza, they're a sushi/japanese cuisine place, but they're pretty good. The thing I want the most is a quality deli though. I'd kill to be able to go somewhere for lunch, that's nearby and has a wide range of hot and cold sandwiches. That would be really great because Just Subs is mediocre at best and so is Ye Olde Sub Base, eh. If I want a sandwich now, I drive all the way to Somerville and go to the new Primos on 22 there. I also like Catered Affair in Hillsborough, but that's bit farther. It's damn near criminal that I have to leave the county to buy a good sandwich.

 

If I had to pick the best restaurant within like 30 mins drive, it's probably Marsha Brown's in New Hope, which is the one in the church. Great steaks.


WDVR is one of the few stations that comes in with regularity in the area. Hunterdon is some sort of radio abyss in which signals all die. Otherwise you're stuck with the standards, 93.3 which for some awful reason, plays philly games and nascar races instead of music at times, 95.1 where you have to listen to nikki sixx and his stupid side kick woman reading the weather while also reading a romance novel. Stupid. 99.9 has gotten progressively worse since I've listened to it, 102.9 sorta comes in, is tolerable and every once and a while if you're pointed in the right direction you can get 104.3 or maybe even 105.5, probably two of the better radio stations.

I do have to say I wish I got went to the black potatoe fest a few years back when Hot Tuna played an acoustic set there, but I'm always broke, so I never bother to go and have never gotten any perspective on whether it sucks or if it's alright. Anybody have any input on it?

The racetrack was always awesome and saw some pretty fun races as well as pretty spectacular crashes as well.  As a kid the track was gigantic to me but looking at old pictures and comparing them to the standard NASCAR sized tracks it wasn't really much of anything lol.

 

My family and I used to go to that fair every year when I was growing up.  I think they ended it around the 1999-2002 timeframe from what I could remember.  I think the "remnants" of that fair became that fair they have now in the summer in Ringos.  I have a ton of great memories of that fair and will always remember that it usually just about marked the coming for the end of the summer break for me as it was always held in the last week or two of August.

Oh I also forgot to mention my other big memory of the racetrack is when I met Dick Craig from the Not Just Rock n Roll there when it was still open but it was a paved track at that time.  He was hanging out and doing his show from the infield pit area and afterwards got to meet him on the way out.  I just looked him up again and see he is still doing the show which is somewhat amazing haha.

really...  I'll have to try it then I guess.  My husband's birthday is tomorrow night.  Matt's has a tasting menu I was trying to push him toward.

 

LOL ATLL - that reminds me of some of the houses around us... they look really out of place and have huge gaits and surveillance cameras - they dot the landscape on little obscure streets.  We always say -- HEY!  There's Tony Soprano's REAL house (as IF he'd hang out on the streets of Kearney).  It was the Clinton story that started us on that.

 

We still do the Hunterdon 4H fair - my daughter loves it.  and.. the sheep will be making an appearance this year I'd wager...  (The girls (our shetland sheep) just got shorn - OMG they are so ^&*$)^@&* cute.  I carded some of their wool - it smells SOOOOO good and it spins really well - except that I suck :evil: )

I don't know if he had cameras and whatnot, but he lived up off Haytown Rd and his house was visible from my friend's yard. His home was just set back real far from the road, like a good 1/4-1/2 mile, thus why I doubted a burglary being the catalyst for his death. Not to mention you usually don't get the chance to shoot someone once in the head all real clean and nice-like when there's a struggle.

Didn't they film part of the Sopranos in Kearny? I thought there was some pork butcher shop they made for the show in Kearny, right?

Geez...this takes me back, man.

 

I remember years ago, before "Rocky Horror" was available on VHS (it only became available on video somewhere in the early 90s, if I had to guess), he showed the entire "Time Warp" scene/song from the movie on his show.

 

But I guess you could only show so much footage before you were violating copyright laws, because every 5 seconds or so, the camera would cut back to a quick shot of him dancing around spastically in the studio.

 

The whole thing was pretty bizarre.

Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

Haha his show at one point was quite popular in the area around Somerset, Hunterdon, Morris and Middlesex county area.  Surprised he is still kicking around doing his show but man has he aged.

 

He was always an oddball but I guess you can explain it to the hard lifestyle he lived in the 60's through the 80's with the various bands he was in.
