The big highlight this weekend is the much anticipated LIC Flea. Will we see you there? The 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 Did you guys see the amazing pie eating contest that Astor Bake Shop is hosting at the end of this month? If you’re a competitive eater (or strive to be one), sign up for this sweet competition. 12-23 Astoria Blvd, Astoria. 718.606.8439 An 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Chairman Pat O’ Brien at email@example.com – and hopefully enjoy their delicious fare outside, such as this beautiful fried chicken. Are you ready for the LIC Flea this weekend? Its inaugural event promises lots of excitement, especially since there will be plenty of local food vendors involved, including some of our favorites: Butcher Bar, Sweet Leaf, The Chocolate Swirl, Alobar, JJ’s Asian Fusion and others. Corner of 46th Avenue and 5th Street, LIC. We’re excited to announce that Milkflower, Astoria’s newest brick oven pizza joint is now open and ready to serve you some delicious pies. See which ones Mackenzi enjoyed. 34-12 31st Avenue, Astoria. 718.2014.1300 In more grand opening news, Snowdonia Trappist-style pub will also open its doors for a very special pop-up opening this Saturday at 4 p.m. Get ready for some good brew and gastropub fare. 34-55 35nd Street, Astoria. 347.370.5783 Twitter Facebook Email Print alobarastor bake shopAvenue CafeFood TalkLIC FleaMilkflowerSnowdonia Related scoops We Heart Astoria Food Talk *4th of July Edition* Expanded Summer Menu and Other Changes at Snowdonia We Heart Astoria Food Talk *Summer Is Here Edition* Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
