Frequently Asked Questions

Hopefully all your questions will be answered here!
Do you have to RSVP for everything? If you forget or just want to see something spontaneously can you still get in?

We are requesting RSVP just to get an idea of how many people show up but RSVPs are not required. You can just show up! Obviously if the club is at capacity you will have to wait in line but even if you rsvp this is the possibility.

May 31st - Exchange Place is the closest Light Rail and Path train stop

June 8 & 9 - Grove St Path is the closest stop

Throughout the week we recommend using trip planner via NJ Transit's website or app.
