Bohemian Beer Garden

Sun August 4 at 3:00 PM, Bohemian Beer Garden
29-19 24th Avenue, Queens, New York City, USA (Map & Directions)
with extra special Canadian visitor, former mefite flex! We're going to be drinking some Czech beer on Sunday afternoon at the Bohemian Beer Garden in Astoria.
I thought maybe 3pm, which would work for people who would like to grab a beer or two before leaving for dinner and also anyone who would want to stick around and order food as well. Also, the beer garden is a good excuse to get mefites into Queens for a meetup, which is one of my personal missions.

Meetup in Queens? Does not compute.

I am SO excited about this. My friend Bakerina used to live by there and I haven't been since she moved to Cali. We will have to post lots of pics to make her jealous enough to return for a visit next summer.

So, I forgot I have book club that day and therefore can't make this. I've always wanted to go to this place, and so already feel bad. We should definitely have a meetup here in the future!

I am still squarely in camp Maybe - I got all sneezy last night, assumed it was allergies & took something, but I'm still sniffly this morning. Onto my third mug of tea now, will see how I feel after a shower.

Such nice weather! I am excited.

Perfect weather for a meetup! Hopefully everyone in Astoria doesn't think the same thing and we can nab a spot to sit. I'll be wearing a white t-shirt with a picture of Ruth Bader Ginsberg on it. (Notorious R.B.G.)

Post-shower & onto my 4th mug of tea, and still sniffling. Guess I'll be keeping my germy self here in Jersey, oh well.
posted by oh yeah! at 9:48 AM on August 4, 2013

Yay, now confirmed mlle valentine attendance! I will be somewhere until 3:30-ish, so I probably won't make an appearance until about 4:30, but I am definitely coming. Hopefully y'all will still be there, but if not please post in the thread!

Gah, I don't know if I can get over there before 4:30 or 5. Shite. How long do you anticipate being there?

apologies on the last moment cancellation. My friend called me and was like "It's my birthday! Let's do something." Apparently his gf dumped him last night thus throwing his plans out the window. Hope you guys are having fun. Let's plan another one for september.

Ok, I'm heading over to the bus. I should be there around 5:30. Had to hand off a bag of stuff for a friend.
posted by computech_apolloniajames at 1:57 PM on August 4, 2013

We have a good group of people. Still in the same place. Back right corner as you walk in.

Thanks for changing the stop, MTA. Getting on the *next* bus.

We are still going strong in Queens if anyone still wants to join. Fatty's Cafe in Queens, 25-01 Ditmars Blvd. Astoria 11105. We will beat those time records set by the board game meetups!

Hey everyone! Sorry Jon and I didn't make it over to Fatty's, but we had a great time seeing everyone at the beer garden and sharing some knee. ; )
