This is a shame. These people were not hurting anyone, unless you count the sensibilities of so-called moral citizens. No one was pushed through the door. My husband and I went for several years, and made some wonderful friends, some of whom were police, nurses, teachers, and social workers. What should offend the people of New Jersey more are the corrupt politicians, one of whom is apparently your Rahway mayor and a tax cheat.

I just dont understand why the political yahoo's in the city of Rahway...are soooo gung ho on closing this establishment. My husband and I also went for several years...and have made some incredible friends also. We were NOT HURTING anyone. The city of Rahway will be losing HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of dollars in revenue generated by this organization. I also might add...I am a VP of a finance husband in law inforcement. HOW sad people are not able to pick and choose a lifestyle that they want in the city of Rahway.

Its not leaving, it is changing its way and is now going to be protected under the same ideals as with gay bars and other establishments of the same type. It will be there for a long time.

The real problem is politician attempting to elicit sex from children and/or cheating on their wives with their lovers while spending our money. Not consensual adults who may want to go out on a weekend and flirt with one another. The politicians are the ones who have it backwards.

I doesn't make any difference to me. When I first found out about the place a few years back I thought how great it would be to go to a local sex club with a woman that i'd be dating but then I read the door policies and they were totally too strict for guys wanting to add some spice to their lives. It took the idea of any type of fun right out of it so we attended La Trapeze and Checkmates in NYC instead and it was so much better.

People if you're talking about the place on Main Street it is LONG gone. The gentleman who ran that club passed away a couple of years ago and it's just a happy memory for some. Please stop trying to access the place. I live in the apartment and am not crazy about people bothering me. Thanks.

We visited Beginnings many times and NEVER had a bad experience. It was great fun watching while remaining loyal to your own spouse. It was operated in a couteous and professional manner. I thought the son took over after his father became ill. It will be sorely missed. Does anyone know if there are any other clubs that is similar in the area or how to locate similar clubs? We also winter in Florida and would like to locate clubs in that area. Thanks for your help.

AAAAHH, Beginnings. Some of my fondest (and wildest) memories take place in the hot tub(s). Beginnings was where I cut my teeth into this amazing lifestyle, and earned the nickname "Elasta-Girl". The staff and patrons were always polite and looked forward to being there. It always had a warm inviting feel... no matter where you found yourself. I guess it says something about your personality when the secluded swing club starts to feel like "Cheers" to you, but it truly did. I become close with the owner, talking with him long after closing about... everything. We were all very upset when Tom took ill, but he had high hopes for his son to continue running things in his absence. Unfortunately, the township of Rahway had other plans- none of which involved keeping a swing club. They finally won, shutting down "My Happy Place" forever. Fortunately, Tom never got to see that happen. What that man DID get to see, thought... Well now... I'll never tell.
