Food Truck Tours are starting to become the thing to do. Popular foodies like Joe DiStefano (Queen’s Smorgasburg Curator) and Jeff Orlick (Jeffrey Tastes Food Tour) are leading daily and nightly food extravaganzas in food truck havens like Jackson Heights. Let’s not forget that Astoria also has it’s fair share of diverse and delectable food […]

The LIC Block Party at SculptureCenter is a pretty perfect weekend event for friends, families, artists, neighbors, and pretty much everyone else. There’s live music and performances, booths with fun and interesting goods, artists waiting to lead activities, food, costumes, art from Queens based institutions, etc. What else could you want in a neighborhood block […]

I can’t remember exactly when I started drinking coffee, but I still say “recently,” even though I’m fairly certain it’s been at least three years or so.

What do you do though when you live in a neighborhood with an abundance of options for absurdly delicious, and quite possibly not so healthy food and drinks? Never fear, Astoria is also a place where healthy eating can […]

ASTORIA ARRIVALS ALERT! We just heard from one of our very favorite Astoria sources that Gossip Coffee could be opening as soon as Monday, July 13th. But wait, it get’s better. Turns out Masterchef alum, and ‘molecular modernist’ Scottish Francis, is steering the ship over there, and there will be doughnuts. Really interesting, thoughtfully executed doughnuts. […]

As a former freelancer and an occasional work from homer, I’m constantly wishing for breakfast items outside of the norm bagel-to-go scenario. I was PUMPED when I learned that R’A’R Bar was open for breakfast and lunch! If that wasn’t awesome enough, you can also pick up your lunch to-go (more on that later), or […]

This just in- we just heard Steinway is getting a record shop & cafe. I know. I’ll let that sink in. Owner Javi told us, “It has taken considerable amount of time and effort, elbow grease and many years of record collecting to build a record store just as eclectic as our beloved town.” Here’s […]
