Now that your beach plans have been washed out. You may want to come to terms and embrace your weekend in this shore town. Jersey City is surrounded by water with 7 bridges leading to the mainland, we have a marina, plenty of waterfront property, and used to have a SAND BAR, now it's SURF CITY. Yes my friends you are already at the beach.
Here are some suggestions on burying your asBURY trip.
Want to Dance on the Boardwalk ? Hit Owen Grundy Pier at Exchange Place for Soulful Cypher's House on the Hudson at NOON today [Just a reminder that next Saturday Aug 9th is the all DJ SIX BEATS UNDER/SILENT DISCO at the Hist JC and Harsimus Cemetery]
Instead of volunteering to clean the grill ? Spend some time volunteering at Art House Productions new digs in Journal Square. They are looking for people who like to party, painting party silly. "Even if you can only lend an hour of help, we need help from our amazing volunteers! Saturday, Aug 2 at 12PM-3:30PM and 5:30PM-9PM at the new location. Art House Location 136 Magnolia Ave (directly behind the JSQ PATH Station) SHIMEON NANDLAL will be your point of contact.
