July and August with Out Astoria

Out Astoria is keeping things moving for the rest of the summer! We have a mixer and book club rounding out July. August takes us into the parks: a Metropolitan Opera concert and a movie night, both in Socrates Sculpture park, and a picnic with informal field day games and sports in Astoria Park. In addition we’ll have our recurring mixer, book club and running club. The full listing is here.

Out Astoria Mixer at William Hallet, 3/23

Please note that this event begins at 10, rather than at 8 as our mixers usually do.

It’s spring! Come celebrate at William Hallet with the rest of Out Astoria. There’ll be $4 beers and $4 mixed well drinks from 10 to 11.

Interesting factoid: Astoria was originally named Hallet’s Cove after William Hallet.

$5 for non members, free for members. Like William Hallet’s Facebook page at

New Location for February Mixer!

Hi everyone!

It’s been a crazy month for us Astorians but I just wanted to take a moment to let you all know that we’re still on for our February Mixer!


Things are changing in Astoria, and in recognition of that, Out Astoria is holding this month’s mixer somewhere we haven’t been before!  Some of you might remember Veronica’s as the place we’d go across the street from the old Lavish Lounge – sometimes it was to chat with the bartendress or just have a quiet sip of whiskey with someone you wanted to chat with b/c the music at Lavish was too loud for you to hear each other…regardless – some of you remember Veronica’s Bar…and this month (for the first time ever) we get to make their venue “official” with their first Out Astoria Mixer!

Because it’s a new spot for a lot of you, there’s no cover for anyone (members or non-members)…everyone is welcome!  Bring your friends, gaybors, subway crushes and take advantage of the great all-night drink specials:

$4 for a PBR and a well shot

$4 for mixed well drinks

And although this mixer is free, don’t forget to renew your annual Out Astoria Membership if it’s close to expiring!  Just click here and fill out the simple form to renew.  Membership questions, especially if you need to know when your membership is up for renewal, can be directed to our Membership Director, Jason.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all there!  I’ll most likely be the one writing out name tags near the entrance!
