Launched January 2019. LIC's largest general social/exploring group!
Hey everyone! I started this group for folks who want to explore the bars, restaurants and other activities that Long Island City has to offer. I've found that a lot of my friends in Manhattan and Brooklyn don't necessarily want to trek out to Queens on a regular basis, even though it's only one subway stop. I would love to meet some other like-minded folks who live in the area or just want to explore this rapidly-growing neighborhood together!
As a sampling of what to expect, group events have included -
Activities such as axe throwing at Axes & Arrows, free films in Hunters Point South Park, indoor climbing at The Cliffs, bowling at The Gutter, trivia night at Bierocracy, a brewery tour of Fifth Hammer Brewing, silent disco at the Bohemian Beer Garden, bar games - darts, billiards, hoops, etc - at Break Bar, MoMA PS1's Warm-Up, The Local's Drink & Draw night, free live music in Queensbridge Park, comedy at The Creek & The Cave, a "Sauced Cinemas" screening at The Astorian, skating at City Ice Pavilion, as well as free kayaking at Hallet's Cove. We've visited various cultural attractions such as the Noguchi Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, the Queens World Film Festival's opening night, LIC Arts Open - Gallery Nights, and The Museum of the Moving Image. We've met up for drinks at bars like Alewife, BLVD Wine Bar, Dutch Kills Speakeasy, ICONYC Brewery, Big aLICe Brewing and LIC Beer Project... and good eats at restaurants like SHI, Jackson's Eatery, Woodbines, The LIC Flea & Food Festival, and Skinny's Cantina. Of course, we also spent time this summer enjoying the outdoors at spots like Anable Basin and the new Savannah Rooftop at the Z Hotel.
Come join us for more adventures! Looking forward to meeting everyone!!
