Astoria Weekend Edition 13.01.06

Looking for something to do in Astoria this weekend? Well, here are some fun suggestions!

Enjoy live Brazilian music at Girassol Churrascaria Steak House tonight! Dois Caipirinhas will be playing Bossa Nova and MPB from 8-10pm, and will be doing so each Friday night in January. Girassol Churrascaria is located at 33-18 28th Avenue in Astoria.

Waltz, a lovely cafe located on Ditmars Avenue, is having a wine tasting event this Saturday evening at 8pm. Wine aficionado Kevin Rose will be there to teach you about the basics of wine etiquette and share his expertise in the history of wine-making. Acompanying food and music will be provided. $20 for the whole shebang. Waltz recently got their liquor license, so be sure to visit them for a drink and dessert!

On Sunday, come back to Waltz to enjoy some "red hot jazz" at
4pm, performed by Hiroya Tsukamoto and friends. Later on that day, stop by the Freeze Peach Cafe for some amazing tea and coffee, and snacks! Snacks are new at the Peach, and boy are they good (tip: the almond biscotti is particularly good with a chai latte). Yours truly will be working behind the counter from 4-8pm to raise funds for a worthy local organization. Coincidentally, the proceeds will be going toward the Women's Studio Center, which flooz posted about below. Come in for some top notch hot drinks and know that your money will go to such a worthy entity. Please be sure to say hi and tell me you read about it on the blog!
