Astorian Weekend Edition 20.10.06

This great fall weather just begs for strolls. The sun will be out so why not check out some of the newer shops in the area? The diversity is pretty evident walking down random side streets. I stopped into what appeared to be a new euro style type clothing store the other day.

Two Becca's (38-01C Broadway @ 38th St, 718.267.2141) has a sweet selection for men and women from cool brands like Ed Hardy, Lucky Jeans and Sledge. They've only been open a couple of months so they are still adding stock...good news too since the lady working there (the owner's mom) told me that they are getting in- get this- size 14 & 16's! Maybe now we can all shop a little easier!

Saturday night go mull over the Mets loss with a drink at the super cute and spacious Indigo Kitchen & Cocktails (28-50 31st St @ 30th Ave.)Beware though, they have some gorgeous new flat screens that will no doubt have the game on. They have a menu that goes on for miles of all your favs and a pretty decent beer selection as well. Oh and if its nice out, go and enjoy their backyard with the really cool fireplace (there are no tv's out there either so maybe a better choice...)

Sunday get creeped out by the puppeteers from City Parks Foundation's PuppetMobile for part of It’s My Park! Day at Rainey Park (Intersection of Vernon Blvd. and 34th Ave.) Maybe they won't be creepy exactly, but puppets freak me out... From 11am-4pm enjoy the day and help the park get spiffy at the free event.
“The Princess, the Emperor and the Duck” will take place at 1pm if you want to set your watches, but get there earlier and help clean, rake and plant! After the show there will be workshops and all kinds of all-ages activities.
