Hope you’re ready for another full line up of deliciousness.  The big highlight this weekend is the much anticipated LIC Flea.  Will we see you there?

IMG_20130609_151624The weekend is looking good so far in terms of weather.  Why not visit one of Astoria’s awesome cafes that line 30th Avenue?  My friend Andrea and I most recently visited Avenue Cafe and it provided tasty food, fantastic coffee frappes and some nice people watching to boot.  Check out this watermelon and halloumi snack we shared.  35-27 30th Avenue, Astoria.  718.278.6967

IMG_5616An update on the Alobar sidewalk seating news – it’s still a no go, as the owners are getting some tough responses from the local community board, but they’re still trying.  We heart Alobar and would love to see them expand their seating to offer more outdoor options.  We encourage you to lend your support to this worthy cause by advocating on their behalf to Community Board 2.  You can email qn02@cb.nyc.gov or Chairman Pat O’ Brien at patobriencb2@aol.com – and hopefully enjoy their delicious fare outside, such as this beautiful fried chicken.
