Rock Of Ages In Long Island City 📜

The area surrounding an enormous, ancient glacial erratic in Long Island City has been transformed into a vibrant pedestrian plaza.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) has partnered with the Street Seats program and the VOREA Group to turn the stretch of 12th Street between 44th Avenue and 43rd Road into a public space to be used by artists and as a small park for pedestrians. 🥌

No Way Rose: Check out out our simple Guide to a Mocktail Summer 🏖️

🍹There’s the classic Mojito, Mango Mojito, Pineapple Mojito, Basil Lemonade, Tropical Cobbler, Ginger Fizz and Fifty-50, to name a few. Best part? They’re only $6 each!
@pochananyc

🍹Two amazing signatures on their Zero-Proof Cocktail menu are the Instant Crush: made with Haber’s lavender tonic, honey, lemon, ginger beer and mint ($8)
@sweetaftonbar

🍹We recommend their mouthwatering spicy margarita, made with fresh lime juice, jalapeño, orange juice and a dash of Tajin ($7). @savagesickoastoria

🍹Mix it up with the Oasis (pineapple juice, soda water, lime, triple sec-flavored syrup, lemon and mint), Paloma (soda water and lime juice topped with grapefruit soda, lavender and an orange slice) or the Sunrise (orange juice, soda water, grenadine and jalapeño). Pick your poison for only $7.95!

Hear What’s Playing At @hifirecordsastoria

🎵 In July 2015, Velazquez, a Project Manager in construction, opened HiFi as a hobby in hopes to provide a place for local music lovers like himself to come together. Since opening, he continues to cultivate a cool, unique atmosphere that’s not pretentious but inviting and fun. He describes it as “not boutique; a little rough around the edges, but still a good place to stop on a date.” 💽

This months Editor’s Pick is @oliversastoria ✔️

👍For all you trivia lovers, come make your Monday not so “Monday-ish” and test your drunken knowledge, then nurse your hangover the next day with a Taco Tuesday deal that’s truly hard to beat: $3 tacos and $5 tequila shots (find a better duo; we’ll wait). 🌮

🥃If you’re a whiskey lover like me, Oliver’s is the place to be on Whiskey Wednesdays where you can sip on a classic Old-fashioned for only $10. Not a fan of the hard stuff? They’ve got you covered on Thursdays with their $5 pilsner.

Drinks With Gina: Q&A with Astoria’s Most Famous Drag Queen

🌈While Pride is best known for the parades and the partying, we can’t forget the meaning of Pride Month on the individual level: acknowledging and accepting the members of the LGBTQ+ community for exactly who they are and who they want to be.

One such member is Astoria’s very own Gina Tonic – “Drag Comedienne, Live Vocalist and the Queen of Stage & Screen.” Gina was kind enough to do a brief Q&A with us! So click link in bio ☝️to learn more about Astoria’s most famous Queen! 👑
