So we’re not quite sure how it happened, but the coming week is chock-full of Out Astoria events/activities! So clear your calendar and come to all of them or pick an event you haven’t yet tried, like our second-ever OA Game Night!
Of course we need to plug the Out Astoria Sponsor membership again here – even if you haven’t read the letter from our founders we sent out a few weeks back, we’re still running our sponsor membership drive (leading up to sponsor members getting into the next mixer for free, and receiving discounted admission to our holiday party in December). Also, in a few days our acting President will be circulating information about election to the Out Astoria Steering Committee–how to submit your name for candidacy, dates/deadlines prior to and during the election, etc. Keep an eye out for it in the next few days – but remember, only Out Astoria Sponsor Members will be allowed to run/vote on the Steering Committee!
You’ll be able to sign up for membership at all three Out Astoria events listed below!
24-14 Ditmars Boulevard, Astoria, NY – 718-956-8742
Game Night is Back!
Join your fellow gay gamers at Waltz-Astoria this Sunday at 4PM for Out Astoria’s second-ever game night! We’ll have a fun selection of games to choose from and a good group of Astoria gays to play with! If you can’t make it at 4pm just come by later on – we’ll be swapping out teams and games at regular intervals too!
Waltz-Astoria is a unique performance space and artistic-minded wine/desert bar located on Ditmars Boulevard. They have a lot of great snacks and drinks for us to enjoy while we play!
WED – NOV 17 - Out Astoria November Dinner at MexiQ – 7-9PM
37-11 30 Avenue, Astoria, NY – 718-626-0333
With the weather turning cold, what better way to warm up than joining your gaybor’s at one of Astoria’s hottest new places? Join us for Out Astoria’s November dinner at MexiQ! To mark the occasion, MexiQ is extending its happy hour until 9pm just for those who attend our dinner!
Why Leave Astoria calls MexiQ “smokin’ delicious” with a menu that’s moderately priced and with $5 margaritas, $3 for half liters of beer, and other beer specials all night, even those on “liquid diets” will want to join us for this dinner. MexiQ will also offer a free pitcher of margaritas for each table, but make sure you’re seated by 7:15 PM before they’re all gone!
40-17 30 Avenue, Astoria, NY – 347-642-4840
After this mixer, for a lot of us, we’ll be scattering to the four winds to meet up with our biological families to behave nicely for a time, and then start arguments over the gravy and stuffing. So before we head out, come over to Out Astoria’s November/Pre-Turkey Mixer at Mix Cafe + Lounge and spend some quality time with your chosen family in the big bad city!
$5 cover at the door will get you an hour (8-9PM) open bar (well drinks/beer/wine) but even if you’re running late from work that evening, make sure you swing by, there’s always a fun contingent of our people still hanging out there until late!
For those who have already registered for an Out Astoria Sponsor Membership – you will not be charged for this mixer! Just let us know at the door that you registered and we’ll give you your membership card! Or, just take a moment to register your membership now! You can pay the $10 yearly dues via paypal or in person at the mixer when you collect your membership card!
Have a great weekend! If we don’t see you at all of the events, we’ll at least catch you at one of them!
