So…how about this storm we’re having, yet again?  Sure keeps life interesting, and while many restaurants have still remained impacted by Sandy’s effects, a whole lot of them are back up, operating and giving back to the community.  Here’s what’s going on this week in food news.

LIC Market has launched a donation drive and they welcome anything from water, clothing, toiletries  cleaning supplies and other things to help our friends in need.  And while you’re there, don’t forget to make reservations for their special trufflemania dinner on November 10th.  21-52 44th Drive, LIC.  718.361.0013

More great charitable things are coming out of the Queens Kickshaw this week (tomorrow in fact), as they host their Hurricane Sandy fundraiser all day.  All the profits that day will go to the Red Cross, which is really awesome.  So have a grilled cheese and give back while you’re at it.  40-17 Broadway, Astoria. 718.777.0913

As you know, the Astoria Art Festival is going on this weekend, with several venues across town taking part.  I’d like to shine a special light on Astoria Park Wine & Spirits, which in addition to the art will also be having a wine tasting, featuring local wines with the proceeds benefiting the Red Cross.   28-07 24th Avenue, Astoria.  718.606.1142

Did you catch the fabulous shout-out our Unsung Tacos of Astoria post got on Serious Eats blog last week?  It highlights our very own, Los Portales Taqueria.  25-08 Broadway, Astoria.  718.204.6736

Starting to think about Thanksgiving?  What’s better than a delicious pie? I personally love the traditional pecan, pumpkin or apple.  You can pre-order yours now at Sage General Store and impress all your guests.  24-20 Jackson Avenue, LIC.  718.361.0707

Recently paying a visit to Martha’s Bakery, I really enjoyed myself and had a couple of delicious goodies such as a hazelnut cupcake, a peanut butter cupcake and their fantabulous chocolate brownie fudge pie.  36-21 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria.  718.545.9737
