The Weekender
February 6, 2009

FREE FRIDAY
Easier Than a Six-Hour Bus Ride
It's worth the short trip past Steinway tonight to check out Off the Vine--one of the very best wine shops in Astoria. Tonight, owners John Paul and Angela invite their neighbors for a tasting of Upstate New York wines. If you haven't sampled wines from the Finger Lakes region, now's your chance.

Thought? Think? THUNK!
THUNK is a new gallery exhibition exploring how simple elements can tie together unrealated ideas. Explore the meandering sequences while sipping on some more free wine!

Disappoint Your Mother
Best described as the lovechild of Johnny Cash and Bettie Page, tonight, The Rockabilly Burlesque Stage Show takes over Hell Gate Social. Let your ears groove to the dark sounds of AM Preacher and your eyes follow the moves of the stunning burlesque darlings.

SENSUAL SATURDAY
Le Dinner for Two?
Get some major brownie points with a romantic dinner for two at our favorite little French bistro, Ar��me �� Caf�� (pronounced "aroma cafe"). Best of all, they're giving WLA?! members an extra 20% off all menu items and a free glass of wine until Tuesday. It's a fabulous place that may not be around for much longer, so check it out.

When Artists Collide
Cross Pollination is one of those performances that can only be found in NYC. Artists draw, dancers dance, and viewers view...simultaneously! All are invited to check out one of the most unique performances around.

Lots of Parties
Check'em out!

SOPHISTICATED SUNDAY
Triumphant Return of Wine Class
We've had lots of interest in Wine Class so far and have received several requests from beginners to start the series from scratch. Now's your chance! Drink wine, impress your friends, learn something. The classes are designed for people who love wine, but know little to nothing about it.

New Season of Rover Trivia
One of our personal favorites, Rover Trivia, starts anew this Sunday night. Cash prizes are awarded and best of all, the Irish Rover's standard drink buy-back policy is in effect.

MUSIC MONDAY
Rave Revues
Astoria Music and Arts is picking up some serious steam with a the new Monday Music Showcase at Blackbird's. Couple this with the already stellar talent performing at LIC Bar and you have a tough decision to make come Monday.

We love you,
WLA?!
