They will probably allow jerseys, but there is that outside chance it might happen.

 

Yeah Loft had that policy the first few weeks it was open.  It was not just upstairs, but the entire bar/lounge/restaurant.  I heard they felt like the jerseys made the place less "classy."  They changed because it was becoming a ghost town compared to Dino, EAH and BCBG.

 

That is why I do not really patronize them as they basically looked down on Devils fans and only changed their policy because they were losing a ton of business.

Interesting tidbit from yesterday's Star Ledger piece on the Devils' owners:

 

 

Repaired the contentious relationship with Newark leadership that festered under previous ownership, leading to renewed hope of a N.J. Transit substation and a park outside the arena entrance.

I have never heard anyone mention an NJT substation immediately outside the arena. Anyone else know anything about that? What would be the point of the park out front if everyone is taking a train right to the arena? Still, I think this would be awesome and encourage more fans to come to games if they don't have to walk up from Newark Penn

Substation won't ever happen.  Will always be a pipe dream.

 

Park is a possibility, but I am not holding my breath.  If the park idea happens it probably won't happen for at least another couple of years.

Good read. Crazy that Harris has made $397 million in the last year alone... Dude's swimming in it.

I think the nice part is that all the North side the the arena and some of the west are being developed. Certainly the area to hang out before and after events is getting better so that's pretty good to see.

Stealing this great post from Brick City over on HFBoards:

 

Pretty sure someone here asked for an update on the Indigo Hotel once it was completed. I walked by the building last night before the game and it is indeed up and running. Did not go inside, but there is a ground floor restaurant called Alva New American Tavern at the rear of the building which is open for business. There is also a rooftop bar (with an indoor section) and a snack/coffee stand in the lobby both operated by the Alva owners.

Alva Tavern (plus rooftop bar and lobby stand) website:  http://www.alvatavern.com/

Pictures from Blackwood Hospitality (owner of the above eateries) facebook page:  https://www.facebook...woodhospitality

Pictures of Hotel Indigo lobby from its facebook page:  https://www.facebook...k=photos_stream

Also a good article about the hotel and its eateries:  http://www.newarkinc...ut_newark_hotel

 

 

****************************

Rock Plaza Lofts also rented out its last vacancy on the Market Street side (and possibly Edison Place as well) to Redd's Restaurant & Bar. It already has a location in the Meadowlands and the Market Street signage indicated that there will be banquet space. The ground floor is contiguous between Market Street and Edison Place - would not be surprised if this restaurant runs the length of the building and has entrances on both streets.

http://www.reddsrestaurant.com/

The Novelty Burger location is still under construction but a new sign for them went up so that is still happening.

Is Novelty Burger going where Uber Burger was?

 

Also I saw a what looked like a bar on the 2nd floor above Edison Ale House.  Is that part of Edison Ale House or that place that used to be called Loft 47 (I think its called something with the word "Venue" in it).

I believe Novelty Burger is actually going in on Market Street, next to Mercato Tomato Pie, I believe. That Uber Burger space may never get filled with all of the options that are going in on the north end of the arena where a majority of traffic comes.

 

And yeah, I'm not really sure what that 2nd floor space is connected to, but I think it's part of Taste Venue (former Loft 47). Could be wrong though.

Also saw that Redd's is coming in and making that space between Taste Venue and the spot that was formerly BCBG and turning that into a biergarten.

 

Nice!

I went to mercato last game and got a pepperoni pizza. Thought it was terrible, way too greasy. It was dripping off the pizza. Wouldn't go back.

I've been meaning to go there and thanks for the review. That sucks it was way too greasy but I would rather have my pizza too greasy than too dry.

Went to monk room for the first time earlier this month. Small place with small bar but a nice place and the beer selection was solid. Had the autumn Betty pizza which was overall good, but slightly on the bland side.

Another article summarizing the developments near the Rock.  It sounds like the downtown area could take off (i.e. gentrify), but it is too hard to know.  Something will have to convince people that if they move in, others like themselves will follow, collectively making it safer.

Had the Sirloin Tri Tip steak sandwich over at the Ironbound concession last night.  Large portion and was top notch.

 

So far have had food from the Jersey Grind (Much better burgers than last few seasons), Slider House rules (so-so in both times I have had them and one time they didn't have half the toppings for the sliders that was supposed to come with it) and Tony Baloney's (both the Shroom sandwich and Chicken sandwich were excellent).

 

Overall much better food this year.

Yes, it's part of Taste Venue and is called Suite 53.  http://www.tastevenu...tefifty3-1.html  Kind of found it by accident the other night.  Basically seems like someone set up a bar in their attic.  Very basic set up but not a bad place for a couple of beers.

While cool it's still just the beginning. I wonder how many hurdles will still have to be cleared to build it. Also even then it's probably still years away.

Not only that but how often do finish products look like the concepts/renderings? I'm not putting high hopes on this.

The picture does look nice but it would have been more accurate to show it covered with snow and ice and in the dark since that's what it will look like for 75% of the games each season.
