Usually a pitcher of beer is $18 at The Garden @ Studio Square, the “new” beer garden in Astoria, so when I saw this deal float in my inbox, I had to tell you guys about it. If you are planning on watching the NFL playoff games at a bar this weekend or next [...]

Last Friday, my boyfriend, Chris, and I decided to go to Christos Steakhouse in Astoria (disclosure: I was invited in to try it). Iâ€™ve lived in Astoria for more than 2 years, and have dated my fair share of dudes in the neighborhood, and had never even heard of the place. Located on 41st [...]

Last night we headed over to La Rioja on Broadway and 34th Street in Astoria. I pass [...]
Every time I pass Aroma 31 a block away from me, the restaurant isÂ absolutely empty. After hearing that the place had a brunch special for $12, we decided to check it out – and now I’m wondering how thisÂ place is empty.
For $12, you get your choice of a mimosa or sangria with any [...]
