Queens Winter Wonderland

Don’t you just hate it when people say things like…. I can’t believe it’s January already! Well, as a matter of fact I can believe it! It’s downright freezing, I’ve gained 50lb of post holiday blubber and last month was December.  So no, it is really not that hard to believe at all. What’s hard to believe is that there are still people who would rather go to Manahttan for entertainment on the weekend when there are so many things to do in Queens. Let’s see if I can coerce you to settle into your favorite neighborhood this month with a few activities…

Mix Astoria– Kicks off the weekend Friday night Jan 15th with  a pre-concert Lady Gaga Party. Dress to Distress in your Lady Gaga Best- enter to win tickets to see Lady Gaga perform at Radio City Music Hall.

The performances will take place in the Third Floor Main Gallery within the 100 Years exhibition. WERRRQ it!”
