On September 9th Saturday evening I attended the Jersey City Wine Festival. The event was held at the Harborside Atrium at 153 Exchange Place in Jersey City, New Jersey. This event space is one stop on the path train over (on more correctly, under) the Hudson River from lower Manhattan into New Jersey. As you get out of the train station you are greeted with a stunning view of the lower Manhattan skyline across the river.

It was the usual consumer wine event with a wide range of mid-level wines with a vodka and gin thrown in. Some food vendors were on hand as was good live music provided by the Stereo Junkies Band. The event space was large and airy and accommodated the crowds without too much of a wait time at the wine tables. People were having a good time.
