Three A’s going through whimsical renovation in Hoboken
I love Cosmo over at Three A’s Bar & Grill in Hoboken. Set in his ways, but kind, humble and old school. A bit stubborn at times too, but that is what makes his character compelling.
Anyway, last summer, we reported that they were “for sale.” Not necessarily looking to jettison out of dodge, but rather “in the market for offers.”
Regardless – they’re now in the process of “minor renovations,” which have closed the place since the beginning of July. They intended on opening on July 14th – but missed that date.
Now – in the window is a sign indicating that a big grand re-opening is coming this Wednesday, July 23rd: “Come join us when we reopen to mark 15 years all thanks to you!” Perhaps they didn’t want to miss out on the St. Ann’s traffic?
You see, what strikes me as funny are the layers of contradiction going on here at Three A’s.
- For one – you have a big happy “grand reopening” announcement…. and at the same time, a
- “For Sale” sign in the window, and…
- Rickety window frames dropping off the building making “bwooop” popping sounds like a Hanna-Barbara cartoon from the 70′s.
These may be small details – but the “neighborhood” is talking… and the weight of a “renovation” isn’t all that – if your place shows signs of decay and is for sale. Fix it up, Cosmo!
