Summer has come to to a close, which means fall is on its way. While we love the sunny season, autumn in Astoria is pretty awesome too. It’s a time for watching football at our local sports bars, pumpkin being added to everything, and major fall shopping trips to Lockwood and The Brass Owl. And this year, The Bonnie is giving us an even bigger reason to be excited for the change in season: they’ll be hosting their first fall Music Festival, to be held September 17!

This free event, kicking off at noon, will be a great day of eclectic live music, fantastic drinks, and TACOS. That’s right: Tacos will be grilled to order, including: skirt steak with burnt onion chimichurri, BBQ pork with habanero-pineapple glaze, and for the vegetarians among us, smoked tofu and sweet potato with pistachio mole.

In addition to the taco menu, brunch will be served until 4 pm, offering up Bonnie favorites like challah French toast with brown butter maple syrup and the mammoth breakfast burger (a Pat LaFrieda patty topped with pimento cheese, fried egg and pickled jalapenos.)

To complement all of those tasty eats, mixologist Mike Di Tota will be putting together inventive drinks for the occasion. (For a sneak peek, one cocktail, called the Dama de Mango, will be a Michelada-style re-imagination of fresh mango with chile seasoning sliced streetside.)

As we mentioned, admission is free. Tacos and drinks will be for sale via a carnival-style ticket system: one ticket will get you a taco, two tickets will be good for a cocktail, etc.

The live music lineup includes:

Beecher’s Fault

The Majorleans

The Gotham Easy

Margo Valiante

Montgomery Streets

Coyote & Crow

Morgan O’Kane

Wild Magnolia

The Kyle Lacy Trio

Kyla Quinn and Her Boyfriends

 

We can’t wait to welcome fall with this event. See you there!
