Tunes & Taverns

It’s Thursday night, and you’re looking for something to do that’s a little off the beaten path. It’s too nice to stick yourself in the dark corner of an Irish pub, so round up a few friends and take a nice summer night walk to The Bonnie, over on 29-12 23rd Ave. in Astoria.

And when we lay claim to such an extravagant line, we often find ourselves asked for proof. And what better way to tell someone how diverse Astoria is than with relaying the countless food options available to us?

The Thirsty Koala

Bask in the breezes on the outdoor patio at The Thirsty Koala, while you quench your thirst with one of their inventive cocktails, available during Happy Hour for just $5. “Gimme a Push” with rum, coconut, cucumber, and lime is the perfect summer drink, as is the “Gingeroo” with ginger beer, gin, and fresh lime juice.
