Thu July 19 at 7:00 PM, Barcade
163 Newark Ave, Jersey City, NJ, USA (Map & Directions)
Thursday-evening after-work food/drinks/games meetup in Jersey City at Barcade. (Walking distance to PATH, Grove Street station.)
Played all the games and eaten all the jerky at the Brooklyn Barcade? Then come check out the Jersey City location (which even features food) and have a drink or a few after work.

There are happy hour specials until 8PM, kitchen is open 'till 10. There's also a food special if anyone wants to get there early, it ends at 6.

Posted more than a week ahead of time so those unused to venturing this way can get their travel visas, vaccinations, etc. in order.

I'm going to be a maybe up until the last hour for this one - I've got a dentist appointment that afternoon, so, most likely I'll want to go right home afterwards, but, I would hate to miss a meetup in my very own city after going to umpteen NYC/Brooklyn/Queens meetups.

This sounds awesome! I have to figure out a lot of stuff right now scheduling wise, but if at all possible I will be there.

Oh, I'm so tempted! Thursday nights are rough for me, though.

Just got my passport back in the mail with a 30-day tourist visa. Garden State, here I come!

How is parking?
posted by Karmakaze at 6:28 AM on July 17, 2012

All I know re: parking is what Yelp says, which is that there is street parking. I don't drive so I don't pay attention to that stuff, but maybe someone else could be of more assistance.

There are parking meters along Christopher Columbus Drive, the street parallel to Newark Ave, when my parents have met me for dinner in the Grove Street area I don't think we've had much trouble finding a spot there on a weekend.

Nutella and bacon! Pickled hop shoots! Awesome brews!

Can't wait!

I will probably wind up getting there (and leaving) early should anyone show up before 7. I am short and blonde and will probably be reading 1Q84.

I'm going to go ahead and give this a shot.

Awesome! I look forward to meeting you.

I'll be there around 7-730 or so. I'm a guy...with glasses. I'll find you guys by flashing the secret mefi sign. I got my Jersey immunizations and everything.

I'm actually headed over there now. I have no idea when I'll get there, but if anyone shows up before I do, please be sure to grab a table so we can best accommodate everyone.

I've found the general area. Going to grab a quick dinner and then look for mefites.

Bookwibble, mlle, and I are here, first table on the left as you enter. (for anyone on the fence, the PATH from 23rd st to Grove took 15 minutes, then a short block's walk up Newark Ave)
