Ugh - two of my close friends just graduated from Rutgers last year. Would love to go to this.

It's not really that bad where I live. I know you guys don't have any sales tax. I pay 3.5% because I live in a "poverty stricken neighborhood". Works for me lol.

Jersey City?

Wait - another question - how does Rutgers check student IDs? My friend doesn't go to Rutgers anymore (didn't graduate) but still has an ID.....

Well the way they did it at my old college's venue, they just crossed your name off a list of current students.

Yeah at my college they just looked at your ID, didn't scan or anything. My friend claims they just look at the ID at Rutgers.


Ah got it - didn't know Kearny had 3.5% sales tax. Loving the new Wawa there!

Yeah the new Wawa is pretty awesome! Better sandwiches than the Quick Chek. I saw that you're from the 201 area. What town/city?

I'm in Hoboken - that's why when you said 3.5% sales tax I immediately thought of Jersey City haha. Just moved in the fall. Originally from central jersey, so when my coworker told me about the new Wawa there, I celebrated. Parsippany is too far haha.

Oh Hoboken, I used to spend a lot of time there when I had my job last year. Always loved going to Bahama Mama's in the summer on Thursdays I think. Whatever day it was with dollar beers. Is everything working finally? I know the storm fucked the whole town up including the PATH station.

haha yeah - the dollar beers are great. Everything's pretty much up and running now from what i've noticed - some businesses closed however. The PATH is finally back to being 24 hours and all the lines are up and running. Not sure how some people are now who were greatly affected (I just know some people whose cars went underwater and had their apartments flooded) are doing now, however.

Yeah one of my former co-workers had a house down 2 blocks away from Washington Ave and she said that her car, basement and garage all had water damage. I mean it really sucks for all of that to be messed up. I have a house down in Ortley Beach (next to Seaside), that got whacked during Sandy. The whole first floor was screwed up. Guess how much money my family got from FEMA, the Red Cross and all of these "disaster funds"? Not a dime. To be honest, I have a ton of neighbors who's primary house got nailed and they didn't receive a penny from these companies. I have no idea where all that donated money is going. End rant lol

Yeah, I'm close to Washington Ave too - she must have lived downtown. Nothing?! That's horrible. Should have gotten something.

Yeah I didn't get a dime. Found out one of my current boss's friend's house was in Seaside and completely demolished from the storm. She received a check for $25. That's a joke! I guess your house needs to be washed away in order to get some compensation.

$25?! Yeah, that'll totally help for a new house.

One of my friends has a basement level apartment and lost everything - I should probably ask her if she got anything.

Hey man, if you're down to go to the rescheduled show, I'll get you in. I was going to go by myself anyway because all my friends here hate live music, haha. I need new friends.
When is it rescheduled for?
