Astorian Weekend Edition 10.04.08

Need a distraction from doing your taxes? Or some fun suggestions on how to spend your tax return? Check out what's happening in Astoria this weekend.

Tonight at 8 p.m., Flux Factory presents "The Best Flux Thursday Ever" (38-38 43rd St, LIC, 718-707-3362). This event is an extension of their weekly salon dinners where artists get together to talk about their various works. FREE and open to the public.

Friday night is Ladies Night at Lift Hair Studio (27-07 24th Ave, 718-728-5438). This trendy salon stays open later on Fridays in time to get your hair "did." Asia, Lift's gracious owner, offers complimentary wine and cheese with every visit. Appointments needed.

The Tour de Queens takes place on June 8 and we're giving you the chance to preregister now. This 20-mile bike tour goes through central and western Queens and begins and ends at the Queens Museum of Art in Flushing Meadows. Click here for the registration form.

Hitting up H&R Block for your taxes? It just so happens that the 30th Avenue and 36th Street location is only a block away from the new Greek seafood restaurant Akti (34-19 30th Ave, 718-721-3530). Treat yourself to some delicious saganaki after you settle your bottom line.

And finally, don't miss the "Ultimate Shoulder Openers" class with Danielle Lee at the Yoga Room (32-32 Steinway, 718-274-0255). Increase your flexibility, improve your posture, and meet fellow yogis. This Sunday, April 13, 3:30-5:30, $35.
