Twitter Facebook Email Print Five years ago three fabulous Astoria-loving bloggers started We Heart Astoria. When I moved into the neighborhood (4 years ago) I stumbled across this blog, and it connected me to the neighborhood in the best way possible. I learned about new arrivals, neighborhood gossip, and the best places to eat and drink. In celebration of We Heart Astoria’s big birthday, some of our friends have created some special items available from now until mid-May. If you give them a sample-share with us on social media #weheartanniversary. What do you heart most about We Heart Astoria? Tell us in the comments section or on social media! Astoriarita at Tacuba Mexican Catina If you attended our caliente Best of Astoria party you might have had a chance to sample the spicy, salty, lip-smacking good Astoriarita.

Called the View from Hell Gate, this drink is made with Rock ‘n Rye, Amaro, pineapple juice, ginger, lime, and is finally topped with Ginger Ale.
