So, your plans this Columbus Day weekend include: shopping for fall clothes (no, you don't need them), doing your laundry while the laundromat's empty, and figuring out why this holiday is a point of Italian heritage when Columbus had to go to the Queen of Spain for his New World sailing money. Sounds like a blast.
*Or* you could catch a hot show Friday night at the newly minted Waltz's Astoria (23-14 Ditmars Blvd). The show is a collection of artists donating their time. And you will be, too! It's a benefit concert for America's Second Harvest Hurricane Relief Fund! Get the deets or donate directly at Astorians for Hurricane Relief.
PS. Haven't seen our poster? They're everywhere!
