The Jaffe Briefing - October 23, 2020

STATEWIDE – For all those out there who deemed New Jersey the most hated state in the nation, you must be woefully misinformed. How else could you explain a recent analysis that concluded that the birthplace of "The Sopranos" and the (alleged) resting place of Jimmy Hoffa is more hated than, say, Wyoming (41), Maine (29) or Mississippi (19)? The editors at Best Life examined a few ...

Nearly ...

The Jaffe Briefing - October 21, 2020

STATEWIDE – Before we even begin with this, bar owners are outraged. They’ve begged and borrowed for the hundreds of thousands of dollars needed to secure a precious liquor license. With this backdrop, Sen. Vin Gopal is suggesting a new kind of liquor license, in which other eateries would be allowed to serve just beer, wine and cider for a fee of just $4,000 or so. It is not a new ...

The Jaffe Briefing - October 19, 2020

STATEWIDE – It’s getting chilly out there, and no one knows that more than diners eating outside of Jersey restaurants. That was obvious on Saturday night, as Jaffe Briefing writers observed people shivering at a Sea Bright bistro if they weren’t lucky enough to be seated near the limited number of propane heaters. The big, burning question: How much longer can restaurateurs ...

The Jaffe Briefing - October 16, 2020

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – Wow! Were people even alive back then? What a thrilling moment for the students at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, who got a chance on Monday to see the contents of a time capsule buried all the way back in 1995! Just think back then: Bruce Springsteen was touring, the U.S. had sanctions on Iran, riots were breaking out in big cities and, oh, yeah, OJ was ...

New Jerseyans Say ‘Cheese!’ (But Hold the Dairy) with Vegan Cheese

October 24, 2020
