What's truly heartbreaking though is that this bar in Jersey City has given back to the community a lot throughout the years.

In fact, Hudson County View reports that back in 1996 the bar started giving out free Thanksgiving dinners to Jersey City residents who needed it.

How many places do you know that do that? Every Year.

The bar is also known for having a great food menu for people to enjoy and even started doing brunch on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
