Although the food and drinks are super important, it’s not a party without some entertainment! We’re so happy that Anita Buffem of Haus of Mimosa is back to be our host and DJ. After we make all our #bestofastoria winner announcements, Anita is going to keep things going with great music…and you never know a little dancing.

Anita Promo Pink Fur April 2016Food and entertainment isn’t all we’ve got; don’t forget our beloved Swag Bags!  Items from Yoga Agora, Quontic Bank, Elastic Wax Center, and The Brass Owl. Plus an awesome tote bag from our friends at Town Residential. (OMG we LOVE this design! It’s so cute!) Remember if you want the stuffed to the brim bags…get that VIP ticket!!

Swag BagAlso let’s take a moment to think sexy…as in Sexy Batch Baking Company!! Our good friend Nieves will be bringing sexy batch samples for everyone to try. Including some new flavors!!

SBBBakingCo_Logo_Black_cleanIf your sweet spidey senses are tingling it’s because not only do we have cookies, but we’ll have cupcakes too!! Did you know that Best of Astoria is turning 5 years old this year?! To celebrate the milestone, Aloria Cakes and Gourmet Sweets, will be presenting us with a special Cupcake! And hey if you sing us Happy Birthday…you might get a cupcake too! (you never know!!)

Screen Shot 2017-05-02 at 9.09.04 AMIf you haven’t bought your tickets yet-you better get going!! We can’t wait to see you! We are completely sold out of the Follower level ticket, and only have a handful of both VIP and Fan. At the rate our tickets are going, we doubt we can do at the door sales.
