Astorian Weekend Edition 021.02.08

Striped BassThursday spend the evening (6:30-8pm) learning the ins-and-outs of getting the Queens Greenway going with a speaker from the Brooklyn Greenway Initiatives. Strategize your move at the Greater Astoria Historical Society (Quinn Building, 35-20 Broadway, 4th Floor) Sponsored by Green Shores NYC and the Transportation Alternatives Queens Committee. RSVP to

Friday night go for seafood at Sabry's (24–25 Steinway) and do it up with the seafood! I used to trek over to Elias or my grilled whole fish, but I found that I can get the same and some other really cool dishes right around the corner from home. Sabry's isn't new, but somehow they have stayed off my radar... not anymore! My dinner pal insisted that I include here that the silverware and dishes were immaculate, just so you know.

If you're a fan of beer and looking for variety, McLoughlin's (Broadway & 31st St) is featuring Spaten (a German lager) this month. Spaten, they say, is the world's first Oktoberfest beer, created in 1872. Stop in this Saturday when Tosser rocks it out at 10pm.

Pub Quiz is baaaaack!!!! Those crazy quizzers are right back where we love to see them, at the Rover (28th Ave & 38th St). Still on Sunday and still at 7:30. All you need is $10 per team and some knowledge of random trivia... good luck players!
