Out Astoria Dinner Tonight at Winegasm!

Thanks everyone who cam out to our Out Astoria Holiday Party last Friday night at Bar 36! It was a blast, and it’s always a hoot when I get to see so many new faces! Hope all of you made your way onto our mailing list and will be coming to our January mixer at least – at this rate our OA Pride Party in June will be the stuff of legend! We’d like to thank the help of Bar 36, WaMu, Men’s Health, Inside Astoria, Eye Spy Imaging, and Site for all their generous support and of course for the lovely raffle prizes!

Okay, so tonight…

WED – DEC 10 – OUT ASTORIA DINNER AT WINEGASM – 7PM

Those of you who RSVPed there’s easily room for the 20 of you – for the maybes there’s room for another 10 more of the 40 of you should you feel like some nibbly bits and wine with the rest of your gay cohorts in astoria! 🙂

Winegasm Eatery is an intimate Astorian wine bar with a bistro like feel, ideal for conversation, while sampling wines and cocktails from all over the world. An open kitchen offers shareable portions that make this Mediterranean tapas menu fun to explore while enjoying a glass of wine or a pitcher of Sangria. The wide varieties of meals are meant to compliment the wine list. A must is the Smoked Duck or the Shrimp steamed in Chabis. Also choose from the numerous selection of Panini, Socas & Spreads.

And on a chill-damp weather night like this – I can’t think of a better meal than a nice dark red wine and a cheese platter 🙂 seriously…i’m decedent that way.

After you’ve had your hellidays with your family and friends – after the new years mess is swept up off times square – we’ll all be ready for a bigger and better OA!

Out Astoria Holiday Party at Bar 36 Tonight!

I sent out a brief reminder last night about the Out Astoria Holiday Party tonight at Bar 36 but it was done late at night and well – aside from my being so brief I neglected to mention the time and address of the party…I thought it would be a lot better if I just sent off the usual “day of” reminder for everyone here!

TONIGHT – FRI – DEC 5 – OUT ASTORIA HOLIDAY PARTY AT BAR 36 – 7PM TO 10PM – FREE!

Some of you probably remember Bar 36 from our NYC Pride Weekend kick-off party – Rocco’s been asking us to come back again and again so here we are for our little festive recession special of a holiday party tonight! Oh and just in case the festive season doesn’t seem enough of a reason for you to come out and party with your friends and gaybors tonight – think of this: today mark’s the 75th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition! Seriously!

If that’s not a good enough reason to enjoy a drink tonight I don’t know what is! 🙂

There’ll be the usual cash bar (just like our mixers) as well as some nibbly-bits-finger-foods to peruse – all courtesy of our local LGBT Friendly Sponsors!

Bar 36 is on 30th Avenue just after 36th Street. You can take the N/W to the 30th Avenue station or even the Q101 bus from up/down Steinway Street (depending on your location!).
