Astorian Weekend Edition 19.01.07

Welcome to winter, finally! We'll continue with the wintry weather through the weekend, and maybe we'll even see some snow! Nice. It will probably be a great time to stay inside and enjoy a movie or bake some cookies, or head over to your local cafe or tea house. Or, sit inside and read this wierd account of Astoria apartment living.

On Friday night, stop by the wonderful LIC latin restaurant La Vuelta from 7-10pm to see its first group art exposition for 2007 (try the empanaditas and mojitos). On Friday and Saturday, you can explore the Brickhouse Ceramic Art Center, billed as "a clay adventure for creative adults." Meet the faculty, tour the studio, and see demonstrations.

On Saturday, I'll be attending an Astoria event in Manhattan, meaning, Astoria-based musicians will be playing at Merkin Hall for the Waltz in Astoria event. It looks like a great lineup, and I'm looking forward to it. Tickets are still available, too. Here in town, Flux Factory welcomes curator Marie Kølbæk Iversen who presents HELLo in their space. Later on Saturday night, head over to Lounge 47 for their "10 at 10" $10 open bar, 10-11pm. On Sunday, the Yoga Room is having their Post-Holiday Cleanse and Restoration Workshop (yes, the juxtaposition of these last two items is kind of funny).

At some point this weekend, you might consider taking advantage of a mondo avocado sale at Key Food. I know I will. And even though it's pretty cold these days, print this out for a 2-for-1 sundae special at Baskin Robbins. And if you see this, be sure to contact the artist and the authorities. Stealing art always seems really slimy to me.

More fun, here.
