[QUOTE=shuler82;3637019]I'd be interested in checking out game day at the Zeppelin Beer Garden in JC- they have a huge indoor space with several gigantic screens. I'd just be worried that the place might be a madhouse[/QUOTE]
Ok I'm in. Let's check with Jumba & his JC crew. Also we can plan on an away game that starts at 4 p.m. versus 1 p.m. so we can get there early and grab a good meet spot for everyone. ;)
party at my house!!!! i cant get as wild and as crazy as i would want unless im in my own home (been kicked out of 2 bars for talkin sh*t to opposing team fans-queers!) so its beers, bottles n blunts at my house!

Thanks for the ideas. I thought I read somewhere, like NJ.Com or something, maybe Hoboken411.com, where people said the town is definitely a Jets town. I was surprised to hear that. Some good suggestions in here- Black Bear's a great spot, and the Beer Garden in JC sounds sweet too, I've been meaning to get there. McSwiggins looks pretty ghey, so that's fitting its a Pats* bar.
Jumba must be working his day job or I am sure he would have chimed in on this thread already. I'm sure he'll have plenty of suggestions. He is also friends with a bunch of bar owners in the JC/Hoboken area that would LUV 2 have a NY Jet meeting spot in their establishment.
Great food, big screens TV & tons of taps? I'll leave that to the expert. Ask anyone who has had the pleasure of hanging with Jumba on a football Sunday and he is The Sultan of NY Jets Swillin & Swiggin.
I used to go to Odonoghues on first for the away games, I think it's a great idea to start a strong showing to turn the village pourhouse into a jets bar. I think that place is going to be good for it in hoboken.

Black Bear is the best sports bar in Boken. As for JC, Zepp's is a great hang to watch the talent at night, but the jury's out on football. For day games I'd imagine the sun doesn't help the big screen viewing, and the other rooms are kinda small. My favorites are White Star(small but a great kitchen, pizza and ribs!), Lucky 7's(when the hipsters are still sleeping), O'Hara's(tell Maria I sent you). Micheal Anthony's provides a great view of NY skyline and you can smoke outdoors. The Lampost has been taken over my some friends and has a good nieghborhood vibe. Couple new places opening as well. All have NFL Package with White Star leading the TV contest. I'd be happy to join in any gatherings at the aforementioned establishments. In JC I normally watch the first half somewhere and then arrive at the next destination in time to kickoff the 2nd half.

[QUOTE=ozu;3637253]McSwiggins and Texas Arizona are probably the best in terms of viewing screens but they're claimed by Pats and Steelers fans.
[B]I "tailgate" at Texas Arizona Sunday mornings before hopping on the train to the game. It's a good atmosphere[/B].[/QUOTE]
Just curious - how does this work exactly? Are bars open on Sunday morning sufficiently early that you can get in a few pops before heading out? And how long does it from the time you leave the bar til you get to the stadium?
When my tailgate fell apart for the MIA game in 08', we watched the early games at Shortys right by the Port Authority drinking pitchers and eating cheesesteaks and then jumped on the bus at 3:30 - worked real well. The Hoboken plan could be real convenient though especially with the direct train.
