Out Astoria October Happenings!

It’s another full month for Out Astoria in October – so lets get right down to it, shall we?


It’s been a while since our last visit to Astoria’s one and only MexiQ!

MexiQ takes the immense popularity of barbecue joints in New York combined with New Yorkers’ intense love of Mexican cuisine, and features barbecue favorites with a Mexican accent.  That’s only the kitchen part; the draught part is as equally intense:  48 taps line the back bar, each one holding an artisanal style beer that has been chosen specifically and constantly rotated to match the food, the ever diverse seasons, and of course their neighbors taste buds.

Come join Out Astoria for our October Dinner – if beer isn’t your thing, you can always try one of their perfectly made margaritas (or anything else from their fully stocked bar).


We’re mixing it up again at MiX Astoria this October for a little pre-Halloween fun with your friends and gaybors!  As usual, the 8-9 open well bar is only $5 for members and $10 for non-members.

Join us for some autumnal antics with Out Astorian, Scott Emrich working the music for us this evening!  With an open bar with your local gays and a full evening of shenanigans, you’ll have plenty to talk about over brunch the next day!

If you’re not a member yet, why not join now?

TUES – OCT 25 – OUT ASTORIA OCTOBER BOOK CLUB MEETING – 7:30PM


Come join us for the October Non-Fiction Edition of the Out Astoria Book Club where we’ll discuss Mark Kurlansky‘s chatty, free-wheeling history of New York City told from the humble perspective of the once copious, eagerly consumed, now decimated eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginicas).

The Big Oyster:  History on the Half Shell digresses all over the place and sparkles!

It’s available in paperback, kindle, and there’s even an audio edition if you want to go that route.

If you’re on Good Reads too, feel free to join up with our group on there - you’ll always know which book we’re discussing next!

The location for the meeting is not listed here b/c only dues-paying Out Astoria Members are allowed to participate in this activity.  If you’re not already a member, why not become one now?

You’ll also be able to get to vote/run in the Out Astoria Elections for the Steering Committee positions that will be open at the end of this calendar year!  If you have any questions about that feel free to email the OA Elections Committee here.


Come out in full Halloween regalia for a fun night of freakish fundraising!  A $20 cover gets each attendee a raffle ticket and access to a two hour open bar with all proceeds going to The Trevor Project!

The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide intervention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth.

Come hang out, dance the night away, enjoy a few cocktails, some candy…Stick around for chances to win Katy Perry tickets, an iPad, iPod and much much more all in support of an amazing cause!

and lest we forget…SAVE THE DATE:

FRI – DEC 16 – OUT ASTORIA’S ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY – 8PM – more details to follow so keep an eye out for it!

See you at dinner!
