Only in Astoria could you find a bar that was serving $4 beers during happy hour completely empty. Only in Astoria would you find that the same bar has a comfy outdoor space no one’s using. Only in Astoria might you discover this place serves delicious perogies that come with vegetables that are also shockingly divine. Only in Astoria would this place be in a pretty well-tread area of town but just slightly off the beaten path enough to feel like you’re venturing into a cool section of the neighborhood no one knows about yet.
Okay, fine, maybe not only in Astoria, but definitely not in Manhattan, or the popular parts of Brooklyn.
