A few posts ago, I mentioned that every day of the Winter (or should it be Spring?) Olympics here in Vancouver is designated to a specific province or territory, then posed the question of what would encompass a Jersey Day. Here are some reader responses:
"I see a gift basket: Springsteen, Sinatra, and Bon Jovi CDs, Box set of the Sopranos, a few "Jersey Fresh" tomatoes and ears of corn, and Atlantic City salt water taffy." – Fr. John T.
"I think if there was a NJ Day, we should give out beach badges, T-shirts with listings of all diners in the state, a listing of all exits on the Turnpike and Parkway and pork roll and cheese (sandwiches)." – Lauren K.
"Hopefully not the Jersey shore, but definitely Surf Taco!" – Suzanne T.
"Lots of food (Taylor Ham, esp.), Great Adventure, Wildwood, Vernon Valley skiing, Wild West City, Liberty Science Center... NYC skyline." – Lisa V.
"Italian hot dogs! Preferably from Jimmy Buffs!" – Kyndi L.
"The Pulaski Skyway and it's magestic views!" – Jim H.
"Taylor ham, egg, & cheese on roll with salt, pepper and ketchup. The Sopranos
, The Kevin Smith Tour through Red Bank, & Bruce!" – Frank I.
It was a bad idea for me to propose this thought. Now I'm starving in the Pacific Northwest without a decent slice of pizza or breakfast sandwich in sight. On the other hand, at least I found some good hot dogs in Vancouver. Send questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
