Jersey Joe explores old, outdated, and weird laws on the sale and consumption of alcohol across the United States.

THE 411

Name: blue laws

What: laws created the keep society at peace

Location: each state has their own unique set of these laws

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

Blue laws vary from state to state and also cover a variety of issues.  A non-liquor example in Bergen County, New Jersey forbids several large shopping malls from being open on Sundays.  So, when you travel, be sure you know these restrictions, so you don’t get busted.

Jersey Joe takes a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City and takes some funny photos along the way.

The Brooklyn Bridge opened in 1883 and features a pedestrian walkway above the road bed and subway lines.  A popular spot for tourists, about 10,000 pedestrians cross the bridge every weekday.

THE 411

What: Brooklyn Bridge

Location: New York City, connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn

Year Opened: 1883

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

It’s a great, free, tourist attraction in the city.  In all the years I’ve lived here, I never actually took a walk across.  I definitely recommend that both tourists and locals do so.  Just make sure you keep right.  The bike lane is quite busy and New York City bikers are notorious for NOT obeying traffic rules.

From noisy neighbors to bad parking jobs… New Yorkers love to dial 311 to complain to the city.  So, what are most complaints for?  Jersey Joe explores the top 5 complaints to the city from 2016.

 

THE 411

What: 311

Use: New York City telephone line for residents to report anything from noise complaints to dangerous construction sites

Location: New York City metro, although many cities around the United States have their own local versions

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

Many cities around the country are adopting this special 311 line.  Not be confused with 911 for emergencies, this line is only available inside the 5 city boroughs.  I could imagine what working there must be like — having to field non-stop angry calls all day long.

In this special Friday episode, Jersey Joe explores the new Arby’s secret menu item: The Denali Meat Mountain sandwich.  What makes it better than the original sandwich and why it’s only available for a short time.

THE 411

Name: Denali Meat Mountain sandwich

Restaurant: Arby’s

Locations: most locations nationwide

Cost: $10 plus tax

Link: http://arbys.com/our-menu/roast-beef/meat-mountain

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

If you’re thinking about trying this secret menu item… DO IT NOW!  It is only available until Easter at the latest.  This is due to Arby’s introducing fish to their menu for Lent.  This same fish has been added to the Arby’s Meat Mountain sandwich, to form this super limited fast food item.  I love when restaurant’s experiment with their menus and applause to Arby’s for really going for it!
