Sorry I didn’t see this / reply to this earlier.
I don’t have a place of my own, but would like to have one. I have an idea for a hardcore/punk/heavy metal themed place. I can’t give away the name, but I think it’s a good idea.
I have a friend of a friend in Pennsylvania who wants to start a dog place too, but the permits out there were pretty crazy they said.
I haven’t actually looked into doing something in NJ, but there is a pretty big abandoned diner near me. I wonder if they’re looking to sell or rent it out.
