This Weekend
We're early!

THURSDAY
Astoria Music & Arts presents their weekly Open Mic Night at The Quays (pronounced "The Keys"). It's definitely worth checking out if you haven't been.

FRIDAY
Now's your chance to check out the Water's Edge restaurant in LIC. Their normally pricey menu gets widdled down to $35/person for NYC Restaurant Week. Unfortunately, no other area restaurants are participating this season.

Afterwards, there are two great opportunities to show your true colors. Out Astoria, the LGBT community organization is hosting their monthly mixer with 2-for-1 drink specials. Also, Friday, Drinking Liberally will be slamming Obama-ritas and Car-O-Bomb-as in the Bohemian Hall. More details here.

SATURDAY
We heard through the grapevine about an Astoria Dessert Tour that's in the works for Saturday from the people who brought us the very popular Astoria Sandwich Tour. Afterwards, there's a plethora of radness going on at the Queens Museum. Queens-based short films, DJs, local bands, BMX riders, and Vendy® award-winning street vendors. Sounds like a party to me!

Our friends, DJs Belladonna and Scandal will be hosting SUBKULTURE, a night of classic alternative and cult films at Hell Gate Social. Meanwhile, LIC-based Ins & Outs Magazine will be on hand snapping photos for their upcoming March issue.

SUNDAY
It's crowded for a reason! Drop in Cafe Bar for one of the best brunches in town. We recommend the Mediterranean Breakfast and a tall Bloody Mary...or two. After you lick your plate clean, check out the great gallery and store next door, SITE--and tell'em theWLA?! Weekender sent ya!

This Sunday will be the last beginner Wine Class at Winegasm for a while, so if you haven't made it to one yet--or want to complete the intro series, check out Wine Tasting 104. It's only $15 this week and will include three glasses of wine paired with an infinite amount of knowledge!

MONDAY
This week's Monday Music Showcase Revue at LIC Bar features several musicians as well as their signature free dinner. This week, it's pizza courtesy of Bella Via. more info
