WHEN IN NEW HOPE.....

It seems the Spring social season is really getting in full swing now! Recently I've received three different emails about two readers and friends of another reader coming to our fair hamlet and were wondering what will be going on. PLEANTY! So, if anyone else reading will be out and about from out of town or locally, here is a brief list of some sure hits, till the end of May.
 
 





 

The Raven Art Hotel is here! Join us at the opening party TOMORROW NIGHT Thursday, May 12th from 7-9pm and come see what they've built! Six art-filled guest suites with en suite bathrooms and juliet balconies. A sun-drenched breakfast room. An inviting living room with a cozy fireplace. A perfect country kitchen. Wonderful boudoirs! A communal backyard with a fire pit and movie screen. The new owners have done a phenomenal job with renovations and upgrades, all the while keeping the legendary integrity of this, our favorite spot in town. Rooms available beginning Friday, May 13th. They are taking reservations now for Pride and Memorial Day weekends at 215.862.2081 or online at theraven.net
At The RRazz Room at the Raven, this Saturday night Sally Kellerman, the Oscar-nominated “Hot Lips” Houlihan of the original Robert Altman film "M*A*S*H," will bring her acclaimed show, "A Little Jazz, a Little Blues, a Little Rock and Roll". One performance only! The show is a celebration of her 40-year cabaret career, from early years at Reno Sweeney in Greenwich Village up to recent performances in New York, L.A.,San Francisco and London. Click here for tickets
 
The one and only Miss Martini Madness celebrates her drag birthday this Monday night at 9pm! Get ready for a hilarious all-star lineup full of singing, dancing and surprises. Sponsored by Smirnoff
 
FACT( Fighting Aids Continuously Together) Bucks County’s themed BINGO has been a community event and favorite for over 17 years. The quarterly BINGO’s are almost always a sold out event.  Participants “dress for the event” too.  So feel free to be creative or just be yourself and enjoy the sky high wigs, hilarity, and the crowd! Your  $20 entry fee gets you everything you need for a fun-filled night. Our local “girls” will certainly entertain you and Miss Pumpkin calls the number with much enthusiasm and humor.  Your entry fee includes dinner also from one of our generous local sponsor restaurants!  You can also opt to participate in special BINGO calls for a little bit extra throughout the night.  Doors open at 6:00 at the New Hope Eagle Fire Hall and we begin BINGO at around 7:00 pm and it usually concludes around 9:30 pm.  FACT offers a full cash bar, but of course!
 
 
If food is your thing...then this is the event for you! The courtyard truly is stunning.

The Queens of New Hope
Kicking-off Pride Weekend there will be a meet and greet cock-a-tail reception at The Brasserie, where us queen will mingle, stunt,and profile the room, and a extraordinary portrait, of the above photo op we did for the flyers and program will be revealed by local artist Dot Bunn!!! Come and have a few with everyone... Pride Friday from 6-8pm. Cocktails by Tito's Vodka. Although I'm told I can expect gin!
The Big Day!!!! Come on out and join us! Take a break from the festival in the many artisans shops, pubs, bars, lounges and eateries. Trust me...you won't go thirsty.
 
 
Need I say more.....A MUST!
 
Ladies 2000 Pride T-Dance
Time: 3:00pm
Place: Havana on South Main Street
New Hope, Pa. I hear they get very rowdy!!!
 
The Raven's pool is opening Memorial Day Weekend! I'm told to expect all-new chaise lounges, an updated poolside menu, drag spectacles, and now live guest DJs on the weekends! Their also working on WiFi by the pool so you can work...and play hookie! The pool, cabana, cabana boys and bartender are legendary in these parts. This is a must in Bucks County.
 
Meanwhile in Doylestown at the Michener Museum....
Philadelphia in Style celebrates this sartorial legacy with a stunning display of dresses, wedding gowns, couture, shoes, hats and other items spanning a century of high fashion. The exhibition will highlight fashion designers and retailers that influenced fashion choices throughout and beyond the mid-Atlantic region, including designers Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Callot Soeurs, Halston, and Elsa Schiaparelli, as well as retailers Nan Duskin, John Wanamaker’s, and Strawbridge & Clothier. Many prominent Philadelphia women were named to best-dressed lists over the years, causing famed Philadelphia retailer Nan Duskin Lincoln to remark: “There is indeed a Philadelphia Look, and it is one of consummate good taste, elegant and understated, the rare sort of elegance that is sensed immediately as well as seen.”  I already have tickets to go see this exhibit...I will be doing a post once I go.... 

 
If anyone needs further info, or other things to do or see in the area, feel free to send an email to mistressborghese@yahoo.com. I can also, with advance warning be a tour guide for an ass grab or cock-a-tail!!!!

  2. I knew you'd be going to the exhibit even before I read you had your tickets! Everything looks like so much fun! Who would have guessed that a corner of PA would be so much more progressive than Sin City.
    Might I add, the Raven pool looks so inviting that I would love to visit and lounge around with cabana boys seeing to all my needs, floating in the pool... But, is it clothing optional for us constant nudists??

  10. I agree with RJ, my big city doesn't even offer this much wide variety of things and events to indulge in. The bingo and your meet and greet sound wonderful. Will they be greeting your meat?
