Halloween in Astoria: Featuring a Werewolf and Frankenstein

Posted on October 30, 2011. Filed under: Art, Astoria, Entertainment, LIC, Movies |

I think the scariest part about this Halloween weekend are the five inches of snow and ice on the ground. Or could it be the monsters that will make an appearance at the Museum of Moving Image today?

Mike Marino (think: Black Swan) master make-up artist will transform an otherwise normal human being into a werewolf at 2:30pm today. Maybe you can even get tips on how to create your own ghoulish get-up.

If you cannot make this afternoon’s werewolf demonstration…

Frankenstein will be hosting an evening at the museum on the big screen at 7:30pm. Following the 1931 film featuring Boris Karloff will be a conversation with Sara Karloff, the actor’s daughter. Get the inside scoop through her family’s home movies on what it was like having a creepy monster for a dad.

Autumn in New York… or at Least in Queens

Posted on October 15, 2011. Filed under: Astoria, Grocery, LIC, Shopping, Specialty Food Markets |

The ides of October brings forth a beautiful sunny day and the Socrates Sculpture Park Greenmarket. I was happy to see that the market is still going strong every Saturday through November 19th with all of your favorite Autumn necessities. Grab a gallon of apple cider, some pumpkins for carving (or experimenting in the kitchen) and potatoes to make that seasonal stew. The best part about doing your food shopping there is that you get to enjoy the cool sculptures and great city views.

Mr. Pumpkin sits happily, waiting to become a jack-o-lantern.

He who lives behind glass doors should get curtains...
