                    Put me down for 2 instead of one. My friend Gordy will be joining us. Since both of us are from Pa we will meet you at Charlies.

                          Benzee: Brooklyn Bill, Ginny, Gail, and me will meet you folks at Charlies Pool Room around noon on the 12th. Can someone provide specific directions from I-84 ?

                          Cheers, John

                            Hi Seafarer John,

                            I would take I 87 to 287 to 78 west . I believe the last exit in New Jersey is Alpha .
                            We will get exact directions and post them before the meet.

                            Benzee

                            PS - Yes Hurray one week away !!!!

                              It can get a little difficult to find Charlie's. If you want to meet up at the exit from I-78, I will be happy to lead the convoy to Charlie's. I can also help out with directions from the Middletown area.

                                benzee I'd suggest you take akavars advise and follow him. Alpha is a confusing town and several turns are needed to get to Charlie's

                                    Akavar , and all,

                                    We will have John Fox with us and he has been there before .
                                    Sounds like a good idea to meet at the exit though .
                                    I would suggest 1145 am at the exit to Alpha for those that need to be guided in .
                                    I also changed the heading until after the meet to let everyone know its coming up.

                                      The last exit in New Jersey on I-78 West is Phillipsburg, which is next to Alpha

                                        I live in the area and can bring hot dogs from Pott's and Yocco's for a taste challenge, if enough people are interested. I'll ask a contribution of $1 a dog - I will pay the extra change.

                                        For both places, a dog with everything is raw onions, chili, and mustard. You can also get cheese dogs. They both also have relish available. You can send your orders to me at daveeaston@yahoo.com.

                                          Thanks for the offer. Please note that Charlie's has signs posted that request no food or beverages be brought into their place. I suggest that you take this into account as you plan your taste comparison.

                                              Benzee -

                                              FWIW, here is my suggestion for Monday.

                                              Rendezvous
                                              We should rendezvous at 11:45 in front of the Staples in Alpha. Since most people will be traveling west on I-78, I will describe how to get there.

                                              Traveling west on I-78 get off at exit 3. This is clearly as marked the last exit in NJ before the toll bridge. As you get off I-78 stay in the far right lane. There will be a traffic light almost immediately after you get off I-78. Turn right at this traffic light and you will see a Staples store about a block in front of you. We will meet in the parking lot in front of the store.

                                              Directions to Charlie's
                                              If you are traveling directly to Charlie's or do not make the rendezvous on time, here are the directions to take you directly to Charlies.

                                              Traveling west on I-78 get off at exit 3. This is clearly marked as the last exit in NJ before the toll bridge. As you get off I-78 stay in the far right lane. There will be a traffic light almost immediately after you get off I-78.

                                              At this light you will see signs to Rt. 122 west. Go through the light and follow the ramp around to your right. You will now be on Rt. 122 going west.

                                              Travel 1.0 miles on Rt. 122 to 3rd Ave. There is a Quick Check on the corner and there is a traffic light at the intersection.

                                              Turn left on 3rd Ave. and travel .4 miles to the first traffic light. This is High Street. Turn right on High Street.

                                              Travel for .1 mile on High Street to Lee Ave. Lee Ave. is the first street on your left after the bridge. Turn left on Lee Ave.

                                              Travel .2 mile on Lee Ave. to the fire house. Just before the fire house turn right on West Central.

                                              Go 1 block on West Central and turn left on East Blvd. Charlie's Pool Room will be about half way down the block on your left.

                                              Telephone for Charlie's: 908-454-1364

                                                Why don't you send me your cell # directly to my email.

                                                I think that most everyone is communicating with you for this trip. Why don't you stay as point of contact. I will send you my # once you send me yours. That way you can stay as primary and can contact me if you need anything.

                                                    Pott's vs. Yocco's -

                                                    I would do it outside. It would not be fair to bring other food into Charlie's

                                                      I won't be able to bring Potts and Yocco dogs after all. I still hope to come to the meet, however.

                                                            Y'all need to try one of the Jimmy Buff's locations in north Jersey for a killer Italian dog.
