pre-meeting social at the Raven in New Hope. 385 W. Bridge St.
Mondays has piano music and show and it seems that
this would always be a good safe place to show up while dressed.

Rt 9 to Sharon Drive (Holiday Inn express) go right. Make left at stop sign, Beechwood, Ave. Right at next stop sign, Ferris Lane.  First left on to Randolph
A few dressers meet and eat at Pizza Hut Rt. 9 Wappingers Falls, NY.

Seems friendly to all but may be LGBT est.

Georgies Bar
812 5th Ave (at tracks)
Asbury Park
Every Monday a drag show
Every Sunday is Ladies night out in NJ 8 PM-1 AM
It seems that Wednesday and Saturday nights are sure times to find other CDs. It seems from the weekly AP updates that there is a drag event at 10 PM on Thursdays and that there is Drag Bingo on Tuesdays. My guess is that this is a safe and low key place to go any night of the week and there are good odds of there being other dressers around.

Amanda's Hideaway at the PL Lounge.
Every Saturday Night TG party
49 Louis Street (off rt 46 and Phillips)
South Hackensack, NJ

RS Jones 

153 Merrick Ave,

346 Broadway, in Kingston. 
She can be reached at More info is at Angelina advises that the Rendezvous Lounge is always T friendly.
