In addition, September 18th is my birthday! Reply Katharine Hopkins September 6th, 2016 This would be the perfect event to celebrate my anniversary! Reply Cynthia Hannon September 6th, 2016 Astoria is my pride and joy. I absolutely love living there but what I love more is bragging about how amazing the food scene is there.
