Back at the Beer Garden

Last weekend, I went out with some old college friends, half of which coincidentally now live in Astoria. After a couple drinks at M.J. Armstrong’s in Union Square, we decided to head to the neighborhood favorite: the Beer Garden.

This was my first Beer Garden trip of spring and it was lovely. The weather was perfect (warm, but not stuffy), the crowd was perfect (lively, but no line), and, of course, the company was perfect. While Ben ate kilbasa, I proceeded to devour everyone’s fries at the table. We reminisced about college and stressed the importance of our old friend from DC moving to Astoria.

The night ended merrily, one of the best parts about it being the 5 minute walk home. Ah, the pleasures of a local bar!

    Local bars are no doubt the best. I’m moving to Dallas soon and won’t settle until I find an apt. within walking distance of AT LEAST one cool bar.

    Anyways, coming from the local desk at, you have a great local blog. Come check us out if you ever need great free content for it.

    Yes indeed, The Local Bars are far better ones. Actually I was looking for some good entertaining place to visit along with friends at weekends. I found a great list of nightclubs at Beer Garden. On this website I found some very nice Beer Gardens’ list as well as Pubs and Night Clubs. It has certainly provided me with a bundle of options now.
