Astoria Summer Annual Pre-Independance Day Fireworks And Celebration 2014

Hi Astoria Ladies! Once again, Astoria Park is doing a free fireworks celebration prior to the 4th of July. If there is enough interest, we can all go on Monday 6/30 to the Astoria Park waterfront to watch the fireworks together. I will probably go and be bringing my dog. I went last year and had a great time!

    So I will meet whoever wants to come for margaritas this Thursday night in front of the restaurant at 5:00 pm. I am sure we will be there for sometime so anyone coming from work could also meet us at 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm inside the restaurant. Patricia and I could a table. Just need to know how many are coming. Really looking forward to seeimg some of you or all of you on Thursday evening. Best Regards Donna

    I need to clarify that I am not an organizer of the walking group I am just a member.

    From my meetup walking group it looks like 29 are coming. With our group it looks like 11. We should have a lot of fun.

    Sounds good to me. Thursday works for me also. Better than tonight. Had an exhausting busy long weekend. Will see some of you there Thursday unless I hear otherwise. Will get there about 5PM.

    I have a brilliant idea! How about we go to Las Margaritas at 38-01 Broadway, in Astoria
    [masked]) for of course margaritas. It is very easy to get to simply take the "R' train and get off on Steinway Street stop in Astoria. Walk to the corner and turn left by Chase Bank and Las Margaritas Restaurant is one block down across the street. You can not miss the place. For those that live in Manhattan this is a choice spot. If anyone is interested let's just pick and day and time to meet in the evening this week. On another note if anyone wishes to go for a glass of wine after the fireworks this evening which should be over by 9:30 p.m. I don't think it would run to 10:00 p.m. let me know. I plan on bringing my folding chair and attending the concert and fireworks this evening. I would get to the park by 5:30 p.m. and plant my chair. Hope to see all of you soon. Miss hanging out with all my friends at this meetup group. "Your awesome bunch of ladies". Best Regards, Donna

    Hi Michelle and other Ladies, first, sorry that I haven't RSVP'd re the fireworks. My husband and I will probably attend the fireworks, but will not be available to meet for the concert at 6:30. What I meant by "further away" is that we usually enter the park by the "great lawn", which is north of 23rd avenue. It is easier to "find a spot" there. Still hope that we run into you ladies! Best wishes, Sue Ann

    Hi, Michelle, I would take the same subway that you take to go to Mosaic, since there is an entrance to Astoria Park if you just keep walking from Mosaic down 24th avenue till you can't walk any further, and that's the park. My husband and I usually go, so put us down for a probably. We live close enough to walk, but we usually do not go down to the riverfront, although that is better for hearing the music. We can see the fireworks just fine from further away, and then it is easier to get out of the park and walk home. I don't recommend driving, as people come from all over Queens, and we can barely walk home there are so many cars. Best wishes, Sue Ann

      Sue Ann, when you say "we can see the fireworks just fine from further away" how further away are you?

    Actually where will we be meeting for the fireworks and after the fireworks does anyone want to go to Mosaic Cafe for a glass of wine? I am definitely interested if anyone else is. By then we all most likely want to cool off if this humidity keeps up. Really looking forward to seeing all of you on Monday evening. Best Regards, Donna

      Welcome Back Donna! Missed you for the June meeting. Hope you had a great time in Ireland. Sorry I have not been in touch.I may be willing and able to meet up Monday eve if weather is nice.

      May not make fireworks but what time will Donna or anyone else from our group go to Mosaic Cafe?

    If it is not raining out and the weather holds up I will definitely be attending the fireworks in the park on Monday evening and after the fireworks are over I will walk over to Mosaic Cafe for a glass of wine. Amanda, thank you for the clarification that this is not an actual meetup event but just a notification to remind everyone of the fireworks at Astoria Park on Monday evening. Best Regards, Donna

    Hi Ladies, after speaking with some of the folks, I think it may be easier if people just show up when they want and sit wherever. It is going to be too big and crowded to try to organize this as a "group outing". So this posting about the fireworks is just an FYI, for people to attend if they wish as their schedule may permit. If some of the ladies wish to attend together, of course that's fine, but we won't be meeting up anywhere, it is just too tricky to coordinate. I hope everyone can make it and has a great time!

    I'm going to walk over to Socrates Sculpture Park on Saturday for their annual Summer Solstice from 5-8pm. If anyone wants to join me, let me know. We could all bring a little something to share. Let me know! I'm also at [masked].

    I'm a maybe too. Depends on the parking. Last year me and Pat and a friend drove around and around during it - and it was great! What's the subway situation in case I decide to forgo the car altogether?

  • Chrisanne

    Good idea! My boyfriend and I are definitely going, and we might bring our puppy too. (Maybe our dogs can finally meet, Amanda!)

    I'm hoping to bring my grandson. I will have to put a maybe. I live on Shore Blvd so I can see the fireworks from the park across from my apt building.
