You really should. That's where I watch all my Dolphin games. It's a great place. The manager - "Miami" Mike is one of the biggest Dolphin fans I know. It's known as the "home of the Dolphins."

You really don't. You'll feel like family with all the Dolfans there. Mike is very welcoming when you're a Dolfan and even if you're not. If you would like to meet me there, just show up and ask Mike for Mary. I'll be there early.

Of course, you're welcome too Clumpy. You, however, would have to pay regular price for a room, being a bills fan and all. See, there's perks to bein' a Dolphin fan!

is there a cover or anything for this?

njfinfan
03-18-2005, 02:47 PM
No cover. Just wear your team colors. It's really fun and there are loads of giveaways and we watch the draft in "our" room - the dolphins room on the big screen tv.

sweet....do they have the phins games during the reg season? if so I may have found heaven on earth

EVERY game - EVERY week. Miami Mike is a huge Dolphin fan and, barring any hurricanes this year (we didn't get a couple of the games because of the hurricanes in Florida last season), we should be good to go. We have AT LEAST 50 dolphin fans there every week - we have a huge room with a big projection tv and we have a great time. If we win, he makes us teal colored shots at the end of the game and we have great servers. What else can I say? As a Dolphin fan it is heaven on earth. I used to go to a bar that was Jets and Giants bar and I can't tell you how the Jets fans treated me - and I'm a girl.

Not so anymore. Mike is a great host. Like I said, when you get there for the draft party, ask him for Mary. Also, he has a huge kickoff party every year.

hey do you have the addy to this place so i can mapquest it?

njfinfan
03-18-2005, 03:12 PM
Absolutely - it's 130 Route 10 West - East Hanover. From Belleville, it should be very easy to get to. You can also visit his website - ramadaeasthanover.com and click on the link at the top that says Sportz Bar/NFL Ticket. And you can also call the number and ask for the Sportz Bar, then ask for Miami Mike and talk to him personally about it. Just so there are no surprises for you - during the regular season it's overrun by every team fan you can imagine, but we have our own section/room that we get. We do have opposing fans in that section, as well, if we're playing them, but they're pretty well behaved.

Slappy8800

cool thanks...i dont mind other teams fans....i mean we are stuck in the middle of Giants and Jets country...i also know quite a few Cowboys and Steelers fans.....I also know Wayne Huizenga :) (through a freind albeit)

Years ago, when I lived in Florida, I worked at Pier66 Resort. I was Catering Coordinator there and I did many parties for Marti Huizenga (Wayne's wife). She was a pretty cool lady, and I also worked for one of his companies up here in Jersey briefly.

Mary is right, this place is awesome! I've been going there for a few years now, and Mike always gets the place pumped up and rocking -- parties, give-aways, playing the fight song...and free shots when the fins win!

If you're in the area, you have to check it out.

I worked there in the mid 80's. I'm a few years older than you. The name of the person I worked for Karen Soto, Catering Director. Don't know if she was still there when you worked there.

Out-freakin-standing.

In that case, maybe I'll bring the wife. Shame I had to find out about this place just now after living in Bloomfield for almost six years...we just bought a house in the Poconos.

Of course, it might not be that bad of a drive on a Sunday.

I know - I only found out about it 3 seasons ago. I happened to go to a Super Bowl party there and saw all the Dolphin stuff around. I also go there all off-season and hang out. You will have a great time and there is an even better kickoff party for the season. You must join us for that too. Does the wife like the fins too?

directions from N Jersey. Mahwah Area?

njfinfan
04-14-2005, 07:06 AM
directions from N Jersey. Mahwah Area?

I did the directions through Mapquest from the city of Mahwah.

Start out going WEST on W AIRMOUNT RD toward WANAMAKER AVE.

Turn RIGHT onto ISLAND RD.

Turn LEFT onto MOFFATT RD.

Turn RIGHT onto NJ-17 N.

Merge onto I-287 S toward MORRISTOWN.

Take the RT-10 E exit- EXIT 39A- toward WHIPPANY.

Merge onto NJ-10.

End at 130 State Route 10, East Hanover, NJ 07936-2103 US

If you give Miami Mike a call at 973-887-1300, I'm sure he can give you more accurate directions if you're not comfortable with these.

Hope to see you there.

Alright everyone. Let's pump it up. Time to get ready for the draft party. Let's do it. It's going to be a great time. Last year, Olinda Mare's dad was there with us. You never who you can expect, so get ready!

I was actually there last Saturday to check it out; nice place! A few people were remarkably engrossed in a NFL Europe game.

njfinfan
04-20-2005, 08:07 PM
Awesome! Did you see Miam Mike? And I'm sure they were engrossed because they miss football. See you at the draft party. And please when you get there ask Mike to see Mary. Thanks.

That just sounds SO much like a set-up for something....

(And no, I don't think he was there...when I explained that I was a Fin fan, the bartender replied, "Oh no, another one.")

04-20-2005, 08:18 PM
Was he tall or short? They're both dark haired. Tony is tall - Carlos is short. I'm sure it wasn't Jackie - she's blonde and would never say anything like that. Tony is a Giants fan - Carlos is a Raiders fan. Of course, it could have been Frank who is a Cowboys fan. Nevertheless - we will see you and the wife on Saturday.

njfinfan
04-20-2005, 08:26 PM

I know. They had a technical problem. Mike is working on that. I'm not too familiar with Belleville, but if you can get to 280, take it West to the Exit for Eisenhower Parkway. Make the first right after you get off on that exit. Take that to River Road, and make a left. Take River Road to Route 10 and make a right. Keep going on 10 - about a mile - you'll see the Ramada on your right. And a nice new orange and blue sign that says Route 10 W Sportz Bar.

Last year, like I said, we had Olindo's dad there and about 40 other Dolphin fans, along with some fans from other teams.

I guarantee you'll have a good time.

Don't forget to ask for Mike when you get there and ask him to point you to Mary (njfinfan) and remember to let me know that you're Slappy8800. I keep a log of all finheaveners who visit the bar.

Actually, I'm a girl. Ask Mike when you get there, or Ann, the cashier, for Mary. And I'll be there at 10:00. They have an awesome buffet breakfast. All you can eat for $10. So I'm going to avail myself of that. Just tell me when you get there that yo're The Goat from finheaven.

If you don't see anyone else there, I'll be wearing blue Dolphins stuff.

Draft party was a HUGE success. Thanks to all finheaveners who attended. Xiidaen, Miami_Mike, Dolphin_Dan, The_Goat, myself, of course, Phin Diesel, another one who wrote down his username, but I forgot the paper (sorry), and others who were there who may or may not be members of finheaven. I did get the microphone from Miami_Mike and announced a plug for finheaven. Anyone having computer access and wanting the most accurate information on the Dolphins, to please go to finheaven.com and register. Hope we get some more members.

Great time.

Sounds like a conspiracy to me. Does your g/f like football? j/k

Seriously though, Slappy, we missed you and Mike asked about you. Maybe we'll see you at the kickoff party. We think it's going to be for the Falcons game, but we'll keep everyone here posted as we get closer.

You did seem quiet and I saw you yawning. Nevertheless, it was great to meet you and hope you can make it to the kickoff party. It's definitely worth the drive from the Poconos, if you get a room, during football season. Bring the wife - make a weekend of it. Just a suggestion. :evil:
