Hobokenpix: Blinding Neon!

7/9/2009:

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 7/9/2009

Stumbled across this photo in my (virtual) pile of “unsorted” photos the other day… and I recall nuggets of the conversation I had with my friend that was with me when we passed the 8th Street Tavern.

Some notable quotes: “Can I borrow your sunglasses?”“Jeez, what is their power bill like?”“you should do a post about this!”“Would anyone know they’re there without those blinding neon lights?” and lastly – “I bet they give Margherita’s a massive Xmas gift every year!”

I think the same guy owns both 8th Street and Margherita’s.

I don’t understand why everyone bashes this place. It’s low-key, a nice place to sit outside and people watch, and the staff is really nice!

Neon transformers don’t use much juice.
they just step it up to power the neon. Very efficient really.

heard inside

“Dude, this bar is full of assholes. I feel like I’m in a pinball machine. WTF, someone grabbed my ass.”

“Sorry dude, I was going for that bender in front of you and tried to abort when I saw her face. Frick’n blinding lights, man, not cool.”
