What was the price?

Most places in town charge $25-30 . They charge $10 ?
The Odyssey usually requires  synthetic oil, and that's 45-50 around town
bingo. I called up the place listed in the wiki & they wanted $50


You had to schedule it 30 days in advance and leave it there overnight?
nope was in & was out 15 min later, cost was $35 after $5 off coupon

Takanah or not?
How important is price?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Not Takanah. Price is important, but not as important as it being nice..

Lake terrace is best if you're expecting a lot of guests, it's the biggest.

1)Email lkwdmidtown@gmail.com for the minyan bus schedule.

2)There is a kollel bus

3)Dorado Park and ride in Brick express to Port Authority http:// www.njtransit.com/pdf/bus/T0137.pdf

4)Drive to Cheesequake on GSP near 125 and take a bus from there

5)Drive to Secaucus (NJTP Exit 15X) and take train from there (expensive parking so only worthwhile if going with a few others)

FYI Takana in Lakewood (unlike Brooklyn) can be made really really nice. I know people that are considered very balebatish (300k+ annual income) that have made Takanah weddings.
