Mia Hungry Long Time!

Greasy Sexy in New Jersey – Tun Tavern

Photobucket

One weekend last month, my friends and I went to Atlantic City for a little road trip. I was craving a relaxing, serene vacation weekend where I can drink like an idiot and lose money at blackjack tables, so naturally AC came to mind.

I’ve been to AC once, seven years ago, with my boyfriend at the time and some friends. We went for just one night, stayed up the entire time, just to gamble gamble gamble. I barely remember it because I was so sloshed. Hey, I was at a tender age of 22, I don’t have to justify my actions!

Anyways, this time, as a mature 29 year old working lady, I decided to class it up a little and stay at the Trump Plaza hotel where every single thing was gold, gold, gold. Seriously, chandeliers, carpets, bed furnishings, curtains, chair cushions, dresses on drunk ass Jersey girls, GOLD. It was incredible. I felt so classy. Not.

I had a really good time. I did lose $125 at the blackjack tables though, but I expected that. I’m a very unlucky gambler. That’s why I only do it once every seven years.

Anyways, on the Saturday we were there, we woke up hungover, craving beers and greasy food. My friend Ryan suggested we go to Tun Tavern, a brewery slash restaurant. So off we go.

Choripan Island!

I work in Hoboken.
And that’s all I got to say about that.
If you have nothin nice to say, don’t say nuthin! That’s how that saying go, right?

Kidding!
Hoboken, albeit very yuppy and absolutely wretched by default because it’s where my office is (come on, no one likes going to work!) (unless you’re food critic?) (i’m kidding again, my office is wonderful, really, i love my job, please don’t fire me, i’m very poor), actually does have some nice things:

– the pretty view of manlessttan (see previous post)
– clean streets
– the fancy daycares with them KinderVans (seriously one of the craziest things i’ve ever seen, though also the cutest! really! it’s like the babies are on a movie studio tour!)
– pretty Jersey people, if you’re into that (ed note: me not so much)
– and oh yes, pretty good restaurant scene!

Actually, let me clarify that. I’ve never been out to theBoken (yes, let’s start calling it that) at night, so I don’t really know what the dinner scene is like. However, lunch is pretty cool. One avenue away from my office is a main strip (Washington?) where they have oh I don’t know, eight million restaurants a block? They’re good and please go during lunch because duh lunch-specials and you might run into me! In which case you will immediately compliment this blog and offer to buy me the most expensive thing on the menu. And it’s not even that expensive, it’s lunch! Read the rest of this entry »
