THE IMMIGRATION DEBATE

Justiceiro took some time off from his crime-fighting chores to give his two cents on the current hot-button issue:
A great deal has been in the news lately about immigration. Apparently, Middle America woke up a few weeks ago and noticed a great many Mexicans had popped up unexpectedly in their midst. [.....] Notice that I say Mexicans and not immigrants. On Fox News and NPR you will hear the word immigrant bandied about, but this is, in actuality, a code.
Read the rest of his piece here.

CEVICHE'S

We ventured out of the downtown area tonight and headed uphill to Ceviche's, a Peruvian restaurants in the Heights, and definitely one of Jersey City's best-kept secrets.

What a gem this place is! The service was great, the interior beautiful, and the food amazing. The only thing I regretted tonight was not inviting our friends to dinner with us.

We skipped the appetizers and ordered the Parrillado de Argentina ($30), the grilled meat platter consisting of chorizo, beef, pork chops and chicken, and the Ceviche Mixto ($16), a surprisingly generous dish of mixed seafood ceviche consisting of octopus, fish, shrimp, mussels with sides of baked potato, baked yellow squash, and cancha chulpe, the gigantic deep-fried Peruvian corn similar to corn nuts, but infinitely better.

I would post photos of our dishes here, but upon serving our entrees, our server apologetically informed me that the owners did not allow photography (this after I took about 4 photos of the interior and exterior). I normally would bitch and moan about ridiculous rules such as this, but our server was so nice about it, that I quietly put my camera away and commenced with our little feast. All of you out there in internet-land will have to visit Ceviche's to see [and taste] the food for yourselves.

Next time, I am definitely bringing 20 of our closest friends. Although ours was only one of two tables occupied tonight, I have a feeling this won't be much of a secret for much longer. At least, I hope not.

ONE WEEK

BBC is filming a new reality series due out this August called One Week, and guess where they're shooting? Yup, right here in DoJo.

I was curious to learn about the new series, so I googled it and found this. Oh Lordy. I guess it's better than those COPS episodes filmed here in JC.
