Community Board meeting and/or wine

Tue February 19 at 6:30 PM, Astoria World Manor
25-22 Astoria Blvd, Long Island City, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
A two-part event; come to either or both! The Community Board 1 monthly meeting, featuring an MTA presentation on the Astoria Boulevard ADA & Station Renewal project and Astoria Line track improvements - then, when the meeting is over around 9pm, a glass of wine someplace nearby (will update this event when we choose said place).

Meeting is over! I am lurking just outside the door for a bit - leaning toward a glass of wine at Basil Brick Oven Pizza about 1 block east of here.

Ugh, I just got home from work and would probably nod off if I made it to the board meeting, but assuming it's still wrapping up around 9pm, I'd still be up for a drink and some local kibitzing.

oh dang, that's some impeccable timing. I just kicked off my shoes (by which I mean pants) and haven't had dinner yet. I am right off the Broadway stop, think you'll be there a bit?

Yes! And I could move to, for instance, someplace on 30th Av!

Speaking selfishly, that makes it way more appealing. Any preferred bars? If not, how about the Astorian? I haven't tried it yet but the name and place is right!

I haven't had dinner yet and pizza sounds great. I could go to Sac's on Broadway, grab a slice or 2, and then stay for wine around 9.

I could do all of those things as well, will start heading over there! check your PM

I can go for wine around 9. I'm in a meeting right now, basically around the corner.

All 3 of us are now seated at a table at Sac's, Broadway and 29th!

This was fun! Thanks for getting this organized, brainwane! (And for the pizza.)

Thanks for the company and glad I met y'all, yeahlikethat and limeonaire! And I'm glad you enjoyed Sac's -- it's one of my favorite local pizza spots. (There's a by-the-slice storefront connected to the restaurant in case you ever just want a slice or two.)

And the next Community Board 1 meeting is March 19, in case you want to come to that.

Wait, what? I go to CB1 meetings sometimes. Wish I had seen this.

gaspode, you wanna take a turn setting up an IRL event for the March 19th or April 16th CB1 meeting? If you did, I'd put it on my calendar and have about a 75% chance of attending!
