Disruptive beer deliveries

8/7/2008:

Not a good week for Maxwell’s.

Maxwell’s thinks they own the streets

I might agree with someone if they said “I don’t care how the beer gets delivered, as long as I can get one!”

However, it seems as if the owners of Maxwell’s don’t give a crap about the inconveniences THEY cause by re-filling their high-profit margin alcohol inventory.

Week after week, gargantuan beer trucks block the intersection of 11th and Washington Street, making it harder for cars to turn, and often forcing pedestrians to walk in the middle of the street to bypass the blockade.

Personally, I can walk around and make do. But after seeing this poor lady with a cane have to walk halfway into the street to cross, it was the last straw. Put an end to it, Maxwell’s!

I sure hope the NEXT Maxwell’s entry doesn’t have anything to do with their kitchen!

Go and fight them yourself. Think of it as good practice for when the zombies take over.

[quote comment=”98523″]if the bars were told deliveries were only permitted between say 10am and 3pm then we wouldn’t have half thr peoblems we have with the beer trucks blocking streets during evening rush hour. but, bar owners are NOT given those regulations because they don’t want to open earlier than 4pm and city hall gives them preferential treatment. how about garbage cans all over our city streets every morning? the bars SHOULD be required to take them in after they are emptied by the trucks, but no, they sit their until 3-4pm in the case of Odonoghues. and they never clean their sidewalks of cig butts either. hell, the bars don’t shovel snow off thier sidewalk in the winter. ALL the laws, regulations, rules, ordinances thaat apply to ALL other residents and businesses in hoboken do not apply to the bars. and the noise every night? nah, sorry if they leave the doors open and have a DJ playing club music…this is SEASIDE HEIGHTS remember? these are all “quality of life” issues that nobody seems to demand city hall/HPD address. these businesses extract the most profit from being located in hoboken. the residents have every right to expect and demand that these millionaires do their share to improve the quality of life in this hugely expensive residential town. start closing these places for 7 days at a time for violations and they will get their act together immediately. it is time to roll back the closing times for these places.… Read more »

when you said 30s (i think it was you – or whoever), i picture more like 35-40 yr olds. and i just don’t see that scene in hoboken. i think most people i see out in hoboken are of the 23 – 30 yr old range.[/quote]
Broaden your horizons, move off of Washington Street and 1st. Several bars cater to a calmer 30’s crowd.[/quote]

i don’t go to most of the bars i’m talking about. i’m saying that it seems to me that that is a majority of the party-goers in hoboken. at least, when i drive/walk around town, that’s what i see.

but as for “calmer”, which bars are you referring to, because i’m always looking to check out some more relaxed places. i have few that i have enjoyed.[/quote]
I’d rather not say, I don’t want a bunch of douche bags showing up and ruining the scene. LOL[/quote]

email me bradykp@gmail.com

i’m serious, i’d like to check out some quieter places that i could enjoy when my parents come out to visit and we just want to have a drink. please!
