What we're about
Don't feel like schlepping all the way to the City? Your friends in Manhattan and Brooklyn won't come to Astoria? Don't worry, you've probably already noticed there are tons of great food, drinks, and entertainment right here in Astoria/LIC--and even more great people to share it with. You just gotta to know where to look! Don't live in Astoria? That's ok, too...let us convert you!
Whether for brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks, or sport, "Why Leave Astoria?!" is a fun-loving group for adults to share hidden Astoria (and surrounding) gems.
Don't live in Astoria? that's ok, too, as long as you REEEEALLY like it here. Our group features members from:
-Long Island City/LIC
-and even Boston!
Our events focus mainly on food and drink, but also incorporate community service opportunities on a very regular basis. We use this site roughly once per month for meetups.
