From the pages of AVENUE’s February issue, one of the many memories of the Unofficial Preppy Clubhouse…


In school, Dorrian’s was the key hangout and the hardest spot to get into on the Upper East Side—it was all very “Gossip Girl,” almost like an unofficial private club. I had to be there. Fake IDs became an official must-have. I can recall one specific night: It was Thanksgiving break, the notorious Wednesday night before Thanksgiving and officially one of the biggest nights out of the year. I was a junior in high school, but all the boys I liked were now in college and home for the holiday. I heard one specific crush would be there, and I had to go out and find him. So I went, but I had to run home at midnight, which was my curfew. Little did Mom know that I snuck back out in my PJs! —Dani Stahl
