Costume Testing Party at Albatross!

Happy Halloween

Friday October 27, 8pm
36-19 24th Ave, Astoria, NY 11103

Join your fellow Out Astorians at Albatross on the Friday before Halloween! Take this as an opportunity to make sure your tresses and straps are all in working order, or come wearing that second costume that you had in mind but which didn’t make the cut for Halloween night!

Albatross will be running spooky Halloween specials all week, we’ll announce a few closer to the date. And be ready to take the stage for some Scaraoke beginning at 10pm! And come out a little earlier to take advantage of the always awesome 2-4-1 happy hour between 5pm and 8pm.

See you soon! And, also, Boo!

OA Big Gay Picnic — The Sequel

Sunday September 24, 1:00pm
Astoria Park on the Lawn
Just in from 23rd Ave and 19th Street, Astoria

Call us optimistic, and/or enthusiastically tenacious when it comes to summertime, but we’d like to attempt one more outdoor event this season.

So we’re going to reprise the last picnic event, but aim for more of an Autumn theme. We’ll go back to the same place in Astoria Park, and as usual please bring food to share and/or what meets your dietary requirements. Dress a little warmer, perhaps, and consider that transition to warm beverages. And something to sit on, lest the grasses be dewy.

As we’re not totally delusional, we recognize the possibility that this date (the first available, we’ve rigorously checked!) may not be amenable to outdoor riverside dining, in which case we’ll keep this event updated with an alternate rainy/shivery day plan instead.

ALSO: Please save the date of 9/29 (Friday) for our next mixer! Details TBD/TBA.

Please join our Facebook group and/or RSVP for the Event (or alternately please email events @
