We do like a road trip. Our favorite kind are the ones where we can set the GPS to the "winding roads" option, thereby avoiding all of the major highways and instead cruising down the back roads and two lane highways.Read More
While traversing the net for interesting dirt on my family name, I came across this place - Schnackenberg's Luncheonette in Hoboken, New Jersey. It looks like exactly the kind of classic American diner that I love. All the reviews are great, but some recent postings say that the food is great, and great value. The decor is vintage and a scene from The Basketball Diaries was filmed there. Apparently it is run by the daughter of the immigrants who opened the place in 1931. I was sad to read recent posts on a local site which said it's rarely open these days, as apparently the sister of the owner is ill. Maybe I need to move back to New Jersey and take the place on. It's not that crazy of an idea, you know.
