Update Nov 3, 2009:  The sign operated for a few days after Oct 3, but appears mostly dark since then.
The new electric sign for Rio Sports Lounge (behind Sakura Restaurant in Contee Station on the east side of Route 1 near Contee Rd) became active on or before Saturday, Oct 3, saying, to the best of my recollection, inter alia: "Rio Restaurant and Sports Lounge -- Coming Soon -- Now Hiring -- NFL 2009".
