Your best source for events, openings, & food in Astoria.
The annual hunt for Waldo is kinda one of our favorite things to do in Astoria. Our friends at @astoriabookshop organize it each July. Grab a passport and get hunting! It’s a fun way to explore Astoria. (Ps- here he is at @petalsandroots.)
So, turns out it’s all cookies (and, maybe ice cream?) all the time in Astoria these days. Looks like @duchesscookiesnyc will be available just blocks away from @chipnewyorkcity starting later this month.
Some news from our friends at @flattopps: To our friends + family + loyal customers:
After two years on Ditmars Boulevard, Flattopps will be be evolving and moving to a new home in Astoria. We want to thank everyone for their support- your generosity, love, and good energy is the engine that keeps our weird little enterprise going. We are grateful that the first part of our ride found us on the Boulevard and we look forward to the future. This will be our last weekend of parties and next Thursday will be a goodbye jam; it would mean so much if you could join us.
Saturday! It’s kitten adoption time again... tag a friend who’s been looking to add a new member to their home. 1-4pm
Hi Everyone! Jen from @astoriabout here! Big thanks to the WHA team for letting me take over We Astoria today. Check out the stories for my day, start to finish. Looking up into the fireworks tonight, with all my neighbors around me, I thought to myself, when you love Astoria as hard as I do, it kinda feels like it loves you right back.
Thanks to everyone who made this day incredibly special for our new @generation_q program: Brandon Sines, creator of @frank_ape, @benchflourbakers for the made-with-love cookies, and other generous @queenscraftbrigade vendors, thank you for your support. To We Heart Astoria for the takeover and to @astoriacoffeeny for the that got me through this day. Good night!
A lot of you asked in the DMs when Broadway and 39th would close. Answer: July 2nd.

Reminder that the Broadway and 39th Ave N/W stations will be closed for around 8 months starting on Monday. Also, no subway service in Queens on N line this weekend. (There will be shuttle service.)
