Mechanical Bull To Be Installed in Hoboken Bar

Two bar owners got a license to install the bull in the bar that was formerly called Gaslight.


Two bar owners obtained a license to install a mechanical bull in a midtown Hoboken bar. 

The bar that was formerly known as Gaslight—located on Fourth and Adams Streets—will be completely revamped. The name of the bar will change too, but co-owners Kevin Bauman and Carlos Almanza didn't release any details about the changes. 

"It's going to be brand new," Almanza said. 

The revamped bar is scheduled to open in eight to 12 weeks, the owners said. 

The closest mechanical bull in New Jersey is in Watchung. Multiple bars in New York City also have bulls. This will be the only mechanical bull in Hoboken. 

The license to install the bull was approved by the city council on Wednesday night. First Ward Councilwoman Theresa Castellano was the only one voting against. 

Public Safety Director Jon Tooke also expressed concerns. 

"It does nothing to increase the safety and the welfare of the community," Tooke said. "I couldn't recommend it."

peopel? You shouldn't be antagonizing others for their spelling when you yourself can't even spell people correctly. Some senior graphic designer you are!

Are you for real right now? It's clearly a typo. Was that even necessary to say? Nothing I am saying is affecting you in any way, shape, or form. I wasn't being nasty or "antagonizing others" when I noted an error in the article.. just letting the author of an already published article know about her mistakes. So please, lay off. Also calling Reformerus_Gianticus "Einstein" isn't too mature.

1. If your sole purpose of being is insulting people for typos around here, you likely are an idiot or troll and noone cares. Given that I don't get paid, I don't spend too much of my time here checking speeling and, grammar,. 2. You have two posts in your history at patch. Both are obnoxious. Try to contribute somehow. 3. Popup is also acceptable in the general sense, although pop-up ads uses a hyphen but that wasn't the use. It referred to people who have never posted before who came on board to say stupid things. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/popup?s=t http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popup 4. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, If you are going to insult someone and call them a name, you need to add a comma before the name. It's the difference between "It's pop-up Einstein" which refers to a scientists jack-in-the-box, and "It's pop-up, Einstein" which completes the insult properly. Now go back under your bridge and hide, troll.
