Happy Holidays

On The Cover  

From The Publisher

Deck the halls with boughs of holly—Deck—is that where we get Deckember? Maybe? No? We’re being silly, but there’s no need to be, when we’re already this jolly. That’s because it is amazing here in Astoria and LIC for the holidays. 

QED For Those With A Sense Of Humor

Laugh off that Christmas hangover at QED this year! Fans of Star Wars and Mystery Science Theater 3000 won’t want to miss Movies R Dumb’s third annual screening of the notoriously awful Star Wars Holiday Special, while MST3K’s Frank Conniff and other quick-witted comics riff over the entire mess.

Last-Minute Shopping Guide

Astoria has so many local shops – don’t fret if you haven’t checked off everyone on your list yet. The Queens Scene has a few places we think you should visit for those last-minute gift ideas. These places will make Christmas shopping fun again!

Katch Astoria Gastropub and Eatery has been holding all kinds of celebratory holiday events this month. But there’s still more coming up: 

Keith Hernandez To Headline The 2019 Queens Baseball Convention

Snow Or Not, It’s A Wonderland

The Astoria/Long Island City area has so many beautifully decorated streets, apartments, homes, businesses and religious institutions, you forget all about the cold and you stroll around taking it all in.
