Absolute don't miss

American Sector is no longer run by Besh. The group that runs is also does the concessions in the some from what I hear, so it may not be as good as it once was

16 things you didn’t know about Jägermeister

My grandfather used to sip in that years ago. I sadly drank more than my fair share in college

Fried Chicken

Wife and I stopped at Jamison's today, she really liked the fried chicken and she's pretty picky about it.

just on this side of the river?

I would pick them up and drive over to Jersey City and go to either the Liberty House or Maritime Parc, both in Liberty State Park.
Fantastic views of NYC and the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island as well

Toast - Asbury Park

We go to Toast on the rare occasion we have more than four people in our party. Normally would hit Franks or Porta or Pascale and Sabine.
The service at Toast has never impressed me

Wayne, New Jersey

I went there once, it wasn't bad but I wouldn't say it was great.
I see by te sign that it's now a diner so it looks like they may have gotten away from all burgers

Kelly's and Clancy's Tavern in Neptune are twins!

About a month and half ago my wife and I went to Clancy's. We have been there many times as we live a few minutes away.
My wife had had knee surgery about a week prior and it was not comfortable at all for her to sit at the two tops around the bar. I looked around at the booths and there were about four open ones.
I went and asked if we could move into a booth and explained why so my wife could have her leg up on the seat. They asked how many were in our party and when I said two, they simply said no, the booths were for parties of four.
I again tried to explain and they would not listen. So we took our business elsewhere.
My wife sent them an email that night and we have never heard from them.

Fuel to Fried Chicken Fights

Barring a time machine that would allow me to go to Jim's fried chicken I stay out of these types of fights and just get it from where I like it

Why You Should Never, Ever Go to a Food Festival

I tend to agree, they just had an oyster festival a couple of blocks from my house. We went Friday night and it wasn't bad, we were able to walk around and there really wasn't any lines. Didn't go out Saturday but walked over Sunday and tere were two lines of people waiting to get in and pay the entry fee, which wasn't charged on Friday.
People said they had been waiting 20 minutes to get in and I could see how crowded it was inside.

We opted to walk up to the boardwalk and get food there without waiting in line.

Jazz Fest in NOLA is just as much about the food and the lines there can be unbearable as well

Coming down 8/27

You have a point about you bring there for a few hours, but most sporting events aren't about the actual game anymore, it's more of showing face at the venue and the corporate presence.
Hockey made reference to the Trenton Sound baseball games, I think baseball stadium food is much better then football, although I have been to far more baseball stadiums than football. Lots more games so the draw has to be there

Football to me has always meant tailgating at LSU games so I have no need for food inside the stadium, but Saints games never had much of a tailgating presence and most of my games were viewed as a child at Tulane Stadium

Are people in NJ as Kale crazy as the ones in NY

I've seen it in the stores I shop at for the last few years. I started eating kale about 10 years ago so I look for it. It is usually with the other loose greens

Craft Cocktails in NO?

While I wasn't drinking at the time of the bad batch as I wasn't 10 yet, I do recall Dixie putting six packs on everyone's porch in the neighborhood. My dad sent me on a mission to take the six pack from all the neighbors that he knew didn't drink.

Best of Monmouth County: Readers' Choice Awards 2014

I had seen that list a while ago, maybe not on here but some of the places on the list surprise me but that makes sense as it is a readers choice and voting could be suspect

Filipino food in New Orleans

Look two posts above yours for the address and phone number.
As the post is almost 6 years old I called the phone number and it is no longer in service so they may not be open any longer

Old Man Rafferty's in AP to close

The only reason I know is we went last year for the free BBQ and the waitress said so.
The folks that are opening the Biergarten are involved

Chik-Fil-A free food today if you dress up as a cow 7/11/14

I'm well aware of the ad campaign. Looks like cow appreciation day started around 2004 almost a decade after the eat mor chicken campaign started in 1995. My comment was meant as a joke
