Astorian Weekend Edition 04.09.08

Even though fall is here, you can still hang on to summer for a little while longer. Check out these fun happs in Astoria and LIC.

Try Café Henri, a quaint French eatery for weekend brunch. Their crepes are fantastic, prepared in both a savory and sweet fashion. The prices are easy on the wallet and you won't be disappointed with their dessert--especially the chocolate mousse. 10-10 50th Avenue, LIC, 718.383.9315 7

This is the last weekend for PS1's Warm Up series. The final line-up of this year features, Jerome Derradji (still music) from 3p & 5p, Bing Ji Ling (live) at 4p, Lisa Shaw (live) at 6p, Neil Aline (chez music) at 7p. 22-25 Jackson Ave at the intersection of 46th Ave, LIC 718.784.2084

Mundo, Astoria's eclectic eatery is back from summer hiatus, boasting new surprises and old favorites such as Red Sonjas and Ottoman Dumplings. Reservations are suggested—they get busy. FYI: They'll also participate in Queens Restaurant Week starting on September 15th. 31-18 Broadway, Store #E, Astoria, 718.777.2829

Visit the Beer Garden this Thursday between 6-9p for jazz, featuring Emil Bizga, whose music has gypsy flare. And this Friday at 6p, you can enjoy a student choir right from the home country of the Czech Republic—they'll dance and sing in traditional folk garb. How fun! 29-19 24th Avenue, Astoria, 718.274.4925
