Astorian Weekend Edition 26.01.07

Well, this weekend is supposed to be ch-ch-ch-chilly! Get your layers out, as well as your hats, scarves, and gloves before you head out. Candy Plum's Trunk Show is happening this Saturday from 12-4, where you can get your hands on some great local fashions. There's a new show opening at the Chocolate Factory, photographs by Iannis Delatolas portraying the "empty isolation of America's postindustrial landscape". The opening reception is Saturday night from 6-8pm. Later that night, head to Dominie's Hoek (48-17 Vernon Blvd) for some local music (Please Dept., Craig Chesler, I am a Bolt of Lightning, Carey Wallace).

For a tasty treat, head on over to the Bianca Bakery (24-05 23rd Avenue) for some fresh squeezed juice. $2.50 will get you any combination they can make (word on the street is the apple, orange, ginger combo is delicious). On the subject of food and drink, Waltz is having a wine tasting event Saturday night. $25 gets you wines, cheese, and fruit, plus Song at the piano. On your way to Waltz take a gander towards Fatty's at Crescent Street for the upcoming Crescent and Wine opening up soon. I've heard there will be great wines, beer, and snacks. Should be a great addition to the neighborhood. And have you tried Thai Elephant on 31st Street? I had some great Pad Kee Mao there the other day. My fave is still Wave Thai a few doors down. Their option of vegetarian duck is a delicious alternative to tofu or meat.

More fun, here.
