Tunes & Taverns

Perhaps the most exciting part about being in Astoria in the summer is the amount of options at your disposal every night. On Monday you can see a movie, on Tuesday you can laugh at stand up comedy, on Wednesday you can enjoy an elegant dinner, on Thursday you can imbibe a drink and catch up with old friends over a sports game and on Friday you can walk along the water at Astoria Park.
