Hot on the heels of our upcoming pre-Halloween party at Albatross, we’re pleased to announce the venue for our next weekday happy hour, and it’s going to be at one of Astoria’s classiest LGBT-owned restaurant and bar.
Bear, owned by out and proud lesbian Natasha Pogrebinsky (also the executive chef!), is located in the up and coming southwest corner of Astoria, right near Socrates Sculpture Park. A pleasant stroll from all Queens/boro Plaza trains, the N/Q line 30th Avenue and Broadway stops, or the Q18/Q19/Q69/Q100/Q104 bus routes.
The venue is offering up an intimate extended happy hour with $5 beer, wine, and shots all evening. In addition, enjoy their fall-themed selection of signature drinks including a Maple-Rosemary Hot Toddy, Pumpkin Beer, Bear Bloody Mary, Honey & Thyme Cocktail, and more!
Order a la carte from their standard dinner menu, or Bear will be serving up a variety of bar nibbles at special prices for our group:
$4 Deviled Eggs
$5 Polish Boy Mini Hot Dogs
$7 Savory Pies
$12 Bowl of Siberian Dumplings
$15 Bowl of Ukrainian Pierogies
We’ll also be hosting a raffle with a first prize of dinner for 2 with a cocktail pairing. All in an atmosphere replete with throw-back classic pop music and movies.
Put this evening on your calendar now, and step out for a fine evening at one of our favorite foodie hangouts.
NOTE: This venue is cash only, so please remember to visit your favorite ATM on the way from the train.
