Good signs and bad signs

Hoboken sidewalk signs – some are good, others not so much!

There are tons of sandwich board signs peppering the streets of Hoboken. Mostly to “advertise” local businesses, display menus, or announce specials, etc. Sometimes they get a bit out of control and clutter the sidewalk, but for the most part they’re manageable.

But while most bars usually display stuff like “shot specials,” Louise & Jerry’s stands out as one of the best and most creative in town. Always a witty or smart-alec kind of phrase… I get a nice chuckle each time I see them.

One of my favorites was during the Summer Olympics – where they offered “Synchronized Drinking.”

Some Hoboken sandwich board signs lack creativity

On the contrary – below is a sign so unoriginal out in front of Rogo’s Bar: “We R Open.”

Probably caters to the txt msg gnRation type crowd.

    100% agree – Louise & Jerry’s signs take it to a whole new level. Here’s one from last February that you gotta love, especially since every other bar in town is out there touting the fact that they have TONS of HUGE HDTVs:

      This is one of the original signs. What’s hysterical is that upon entry one finds old ‘black and white’ movies playing on the two small color TVs![quote comment=”219160″]100% agree – Louise & Jerry’s signs take it to a whole new level.

    Almost a lost art in this town. Occasionally the Northern Soul folks will have a funny one.
