OA raised $400! Sunday Brunch! And don’t forget to register for AIDS Walk NY!

Thanks to everyone who came out to Dave&Buster’s last night! John-Paul managed to raise $400 for Out Astoria – and he was even unlucky enough to be the first guy up for auction! Even the second, third and fourth guys didn’t do as well! The next time you see John-Paul thank him for taking one for the team! :)

So tonight Why Leave Astoria’s Trivia League is coming to an end…tonight’s final game will decide if our gay team is just as dorky with inane knowledge as their straight sisters and brethren! If we take third place I’ll be happy…but I’ll be happier if we get to second or first place b/c that just means we’ll get more of the money pot!

Which of course would then give us all a reason to pop by Lavish Lounge’s Cha Cha Lounge party! Tonight’s theme is “La Carnivale des Reines” whatever that means…but from what I can gather from the facebook evite it has something to do with cheap drinks b/c they’re doing $4 well drinks, $5 absolut drinks and $6 top shelf all night long!

I probably won’t be there till after 11pm if we’re still standing after trivia but feel free to RSVP at:

We’re doing something a little special for our Brunch in April – we’re going back to Winegasm to take advantage of their three-mimosa brunch special on Sunday, the 26th!

For the set price of $15.95 you get the choice of a brunch entree with not one, not two, but THREE mimosas to help wash down your entree and sooth your hangover from the night before at Lavish!

There’s nothing on this brunch menu I wouldn’t try – I’m actually particularly looking forward to the citrus ricotta pancake – takes me back to the food bar days of yore and their malted pancakes!

Brunch at Winegasm is over at 4:00 PM so don’t be late for this one! We’ll have to cap this at 20 attendees again and we’ll try to save everyone a seat at the big central table, but if we get more than that we can always start branching out to the side tables too!

DON’T FORGET TO REGISTER TO WALK WITH THE OUT ASTORIA TEAM!!!

OUT Astoria is forming a Team to participate in the 2009 AIDS Walk on Sunday, May 17. AIDS Walk New York is a time for meaningful camaraderie; a great reason for friends and family groups to get together, a way to show support for those fighting HIV/AIDS, and a chance to walk in memory of loved ones.
