This Weekend in Astoria
We bid farewell to Bush

It's been the biggest week yet for WLA?! after nearly doubling our average weekly site traffic. Please help keep the site growing by spreading the word to your Astoria friends. You can even select recipients from your Gmail/Yahoo/Hotmail contacts here.

We received great feedback from members at last week's Round Table and will continue improving the site throughout the year. Some highlights include a WLA?! Facebook application, neighborhood discount cards, and a new Cheap in Astoria blog. If you were unable to attend and would like to weigh in on how we can continue to improve the site, please let us know.

Attention ladies, there's a reason why bars don't host Men's Night, and Club 21* knows this. Each night throughout January, ladies get 2-for-1 drinks starting at 5p. Meanwhile, gentlemen, fear not, Club 21 is offering you a special, too--the unique opportunity to pay full price for drinks in a bar full of women. They're mixing some mean seasonal drinks, so if you live west of the train, this is a happy hour must!

Then for dinner, take just 10 steps down the street to Vesta Vino, the sexiest new wine bar and trattoria in town. While reservations are not required, Friday evenings have been packed!

Also Friday night, Bungalo will be hosting Eastern Nights--a tribute to Eastern and Western Europe. Ladies (and pimps) get the VIP treatment again. Show up at the door with five ladies and get a free bottle of champagne! The $10 cover starts at 10p, but that includes your first round on the house.

Lots more Friday specials and events on our calendar.

*Not to be confused with Club 23--where every night is Men's Night!

The first rule of Astorianism is you can't start a weekend without a brunch--our favorite meal of the day. And while you're at it, lets make it wet! Las Margaritas has a great $7.95 brunch special that includes a large-portion meal, juice, and a breakfast drink (their Bloody Marys are fantastic!).

Saturday night, Waltz-Astoria will play host to local musican, Matt Sucich's CD release party for Settle Down.

Indigo is test driving some recession specials this weekend offering 2-for-1 shots, half price apps, $13 pitchers, and more. Special guest DJ, the Astoria Kids.

Expect a heatwave this Sunday as it even warms up enough to snow! This Sunday, starting at noon, Break is featuring free pool and ping-pong with $3 pints of draft beers. After the recent installation of several huge flatscreens, it's turned into a great place to watch the game.

Sunday afternoon, WLA?! invites you to join us for the latest session of Wine Class, Wine Pairing 202: Wine + Cheese. It's not too late to enroll! There are still seats available and there will be a freshman class that starts at 4p. It's been a huge hit so far and we invite you to join us whether you've attended all four classes or if you're an incoming freshman--you're guaranteed to learn (and drink) a ton!

Start saying goodbye to the hairy situation we've gotten ourselves into on this Monday with Fairwell to Bush--a 20% discount on Brazllian Bikini waxes and waxing products at the Manhattan spa, Bliss. Though not in Astoria, our own, Vanilla Bean masterminded this brilliant campaign! For valid dates and more information, visit our website.

Monday night, bring your freshly waxed...self over to LIC Bar for FREE dinner and musical performance by local latin, jazz, electronic, fusion group, Criminoso. Quite honestly, I can't think of a better way to spend a cold, Monday night.
