What we're about

Welcome to the Ladies Dining Group of Northern MA & Southern NH!

Are you looking to expand your circle of friends by going out for dinner, cocktails, or brunch with like-minded women? Join our dynamic and diverse group to meet other local women who have a positive outlook, love to laugh, and have a great time.

Our group exclusively caters to women who are friendly, outgoing, classy, sincere, respectful, and responsible, while exploring popular/new restaurants and trying new activities.

Join us with other women living in the surrounding areas of: Acton, Amherst NH, Andover, Ayer, Bedford MA, Bedford NH, Billerica, Bolton, Boxboro, Burlington, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Concord MA, Derry, Dracut, Dunstable, Groton, Harvard, Haverhill, Hollis NH, Hudson NH, Lawrence, Lexington, Littleton MA, Londonderry NH, Lowell, Manchester NH, Merrimack NH, Methuen, Milford NH, Nashua NH, N. Andover, N. Chelmsford, N. Reading, Pelham, Pepperell, Reading, Salem NH, Stow, Sudbury, Tewksbury, Tyngsboro, Westford, Wilmington, Windham NH, Woburn.

Women from all backgrounds, married or single, MA/NH natives, or new to the area are welcome.

COMMUNICATION: Please share ideas for other restaurants or activities on our message board. Check our calendar often - there will be plenty of activities in the upcoming months.

If you RSVP or are on a waitlist for an event, please check back as the date nears, as all communications will be posted on the event page.

SCHEDULE: We plan to schedule at least one event per week - weekday, weeknight and weekend events included. Our group is very active; the majority of our events are posted well in advance to provide ample time to plan. If you would like to attend an event, it is highly recommended that you RSVP or join the waitlist, as the attending list changes frequently.

RSVPs: If you RSVP, you are expected to arrive on time. Please be respectful of other members, as there are times that the restaurant will not seat our party until the whole party has arrived. This will cut into the time allocated for our party by the restaurant.

UNABLE TO ATTEND? If you find that your schedule has changed, please be considerate and respectful to other members by changing your RSVP as soon as possible and no later than 48 hours of the scheduled event to allow those who are on the waitlist the opportunity to attend. We understand that life happens, and emergencies do arise, but we do not condone no-shows or day-of cancellations. If you cancel on the day of an event, you may be marked as a no-show.

Unfortunately, “No-Shows” have become an issue with some members. As a result, if any member has any no-shows on their attendance record, that member may be removed from an event’s attending list in favor of a member with perfect attendance. Multiple no-shows without communication will result in removal from the group.

WAITLISTS: The waitlist auto-populates. When a member on the attending RSVP list changes their RSVP, the next member is added to the attending list. Quite often, those who are on the waitlist may be automatically added to the "ATTENDING" list. It is your responsibility to remain updated if an opening becomes available. If for any reason you change your mind and decide not to attend an event, it takes a few minutes for you to update your RSVP to “NOT GOING”.


- This is a Ladies Only Group, Sorry Guys!

- We DO NOT condone no-shows or day of cancellations, petty drama, disrespect, gossiping, racism, or harassment. The Ladies Dining Group of Northern MA / Southern NH reserves the right to determine who remains a member or who will be removed from our private group for any reason at any time.

THIS IS THE CONFIRMED DATE! Cafe Lafayette Dinner Train - North Woodstock, NH

We have confirmed a date for the Café Lafayette Dinner Train in North Woodstock, NH -- Friday, August 19, 2022.


We are opting for Dome Level Dining on the upper level of the train. The cost is $120.00 per person and includes 2-hour train fare, 5-course meal and tax. Gratuity and bar service are additional.

Located in the scenic White Mountains of New Hampshire, a trip on the Cafe Lafayette Dinner Train offers something totally different and we promise that you will enjoy a memorable dining experience. Featuring a two-hour train ride complete with a 5-course dinner aboard 1950's restored vintage rail cars, the Cafe Lafayette Dinner Train is a dining experience of a lifetime.

The menu can be seen on their website: https://www.nhdinnertrain.com then click Menu. (We have recently learned that this menu will change in August.) There is also a Gallery of pictures from the train.

There are only 24 seats available in the Dome Level. Please make your reservation as soon as possible as they are holding all of the 24 seats for until 6/19/22. You can make reservations after that date, but only if seats are still available.

Here is how the ticketing works:
Each person should book their own reservation. In order to get one of the seats being held for us on August 19, YOU MUST CALL (603)[masked] TO MAKE THE RESERVATION (you won’t be able to book for that evening using their online reservations!!)

No charge will occur at time of booking. Credit card information is taken to hold the reservation and is not pre-charged. Full payment is due at the end of the evening.

Cancellation policy is 24-hour notice. “No shows” will incur a full charge to the credit card. 24-hour notice is required to avoid a full charge to card on file. YOU MUST CANCEL BY PHONE!
