Mc Swiggan’s Bar


In case any of you are interested, McSwiggan’s Bar is now up and running, less than nine months after the destructive fire reduced the building to shambles. More interior space, outdoor seating, and definitely more revenue flowing now!

Amazing recovery time, not only for the fire cleanup, but the inspections, rehabilitation, and complete turnaround! Probably smashed the Hoboken record by months! How’d they do it???

Just goes to show you that there’s a silver (is it gold, or green?) lining to every bad situation, even a devastating fire…

Anyway Furey, from took a few snapshots this evening:

Don’t be such a sour puss, Sandy. Stop by and have a drink, I’m sure everyone willl be thrilled to see you. Maybe you could join in the very lame sports chatter and try to milk everyone there for more sympathy like you tried in the past.

Just kidding. No one likes you, and most of them wish you contracted aids.

Have a great day! :mrgreen:

I didn’t say anything nasty about your teams (though there’s plenty of ammo available if I so chose), and I’m not a jackass, I’m just a third generation Boston fan who grew up rooting for the same teams my father and grandfather have followed for up to 85 years (and in the case of the Pats and Celtics, for the entire history of the teams). I’ve also lived in Jersey my whole life, so no amount of crap you can talk to me is gonna be new to me. And if I stood by the Pats when they were 2-14 and the joke of the league, why would I abandon them as soon as they lose a game for the first time in almost two years? Anybody who would abandon their team under those circumstances isn’t a fan at all. Lemme finally say this: I would much, MUCH rather watch a game with a fan of the other team who knows their stuff about the sport and isn’t a d-bag about it, than with a fan of my team who acts like an idiot the whole time. My Dad and I went to the Giants/Pats game last year where the Pats clinched the 16-0 season, and while lots of Giants fans were nasty to us that night, the guy next to us shook our hands after the game and said, “Congratulations.… Read more »
