Last week-ish I went to Miracle on Mercer with some pals and I had an enjoyable and festive time.
I’ll warn you now, I didn’t really get any good pics and I’m sorry.
Miracle on Mercer is actually Franklin Social in disguise. But shh, don’t tell because some people still believe in Santa.
It’s beautifully decorated indoors and out! We sat outside because we all pretty much like it better that way, in these times. Luckily we were right underneath a heater but even if we weren’t I think it would have been fine. The “breezeway” area we were in was warm enough overall.
There were tons of lights and some cute old fashioned decorations and bows and snow sprayed on the window.
I WAS REALLY INTO IT.
The whole point of Miracle on Mercer is to have silly Xmas cocktails AND WE DID.
Just like everywhere they had the link to their menu on the table because menus are dirty germ factories and maybe we should actually never have them again. But this one had a cute reindeer on it!
I got the “Jingle Balls Nog” with the intention of trying something else after. But then I just got like 3 more nogs.
For many years I scoffed at the nog but frankly the nog is where it’s at. I have a renewed interest in drinks as dessert because I’m trying to minimize overall consumption and maybe shed some of my quarantine 20 so my fav clothes fit again. So, two birds one stone.
Even though that expression is mean and if I EVER see you going around throwing stones at birds I WILL END YOU.
We also got a couple of rounds of “Nice Shots” (rum, peppermint tea, chocolate) as a group. And they were grand. If all shots were fun like this I would be more excited when people are like, “I’ll buy you a shot!” But at other bars all I really have to choose from is Fireball and everyone always acts stuck up about that and it’s like we can’t ALL be “‘cool’ girls that drink whisk(e)y neat” or whatever so just CALM DOWN.
Miracle on Mercer will be Miracle on Mercer-ing until December 31 at 292 Barrow St in Downtown Jersey City. Okay before you get all FREAKED OUT about it, Mercer is the CROSS STREET because it is on A CORNER.
