Newark Food & Drink

Old Newark

(c. 1952-1964).  Longshoremen from Port Newark drinking boilermakers in between their shifts; weddings, communions and New Year's Eve parties in the back hall. Smoked eels and pickled eggs available daily. Live lobsters sold out of a sink full of ice on Fridays.  Was "grandfathered" in to stay right next door to another bar (The "Inn"), although zoning then required taverns to be 150 ft. apart.
