Montclair: The Hahne's Building and So Much More!
Apparently being the Upper West Side of the suburbs -- New York Magazine's short-hand for it -- isn't good enough for Montclair. Or maybe town manager Joe Hartnett just doesn't like it.
Phil Read reports in today's Star-Ledger that Montclair has asked for bids from image consultants to come up with a new slogan or branding concept for the town.
We're not good at filling out all those little RFP thingies, but really Montclair should just send its money to us (we take PayPal). Here are a few ideas right off the bat.
Montclair: The Barista Shops There!
Montclair: Blacks Pay More But We're Fixing It!
Montclair: We've Got Yogi Berra!
Montclair: More Yahoo User Groups Than Any Other Town!
Gosh this is fun. We could go on all day.
Montclair: Effete Liberal Snobs and Proud of It!
Just one question. When Montclair attracts gazillions of shoppers, diners and theater-goers through its new campaign, where does it plan to have them park?

Like I said to you last week - hope they don't plan on bringing their SUVs into the parking deck, because now that Rascals is in town, no more nighttime bank parking to get Sushi Hana.

Oh puleeze! Don't get me started on Rascal's and the Chase parking lot! I exchanged some words with the lowlife parking attendant there last week. I didn't realize that you couldn't park there for Sushi Hana anymore. The little *&^% actually called the cops on me! Fortunately, I was just told to move my car and was not ticketed.
I wrote a letter complaining to the manager of Rascal's who was actually very nice about it and apologized for the rude young man in the lot. Rascal's rents the lot from Chase; Sushi Hana, unfortunately, does not. He said that's it's an insurance thing and that Rascal's is responsible for any cars in the lot.
But I have to tell ya...I went to Sushi Hana on Monday night and the only cars in the lot belonged to people using the ATM machine.

"Effete liberal snobs"? That's painting the people of Montclair with a wide brush, isn't it? If that's who you think inhabits Montclair, you don't have a clue. Maybe you should stick to Bloomfield and Glen Ridge (no snobs there, right?).
