What do Pythagoras, Charlie Parker, the Fun Tank, and Long Island City, NY have in common? Fifth Hammer Brewing, that's what. The NYC brewery landscape continues to grow with the addition of this gem. Join Mark and Jimmy as they spend some time with Chris Cuzme and Mary Izett at this can't-miss new brewery in Queens!
Mark, Jimmy & Squigs make the easy trip to LIC (just a few stops on the 7 train) to Alewife, the Best Beer Bar in NY for 2013 (according to rate beer.com). Here's some inside info on specials, the owners, and one of the best burgers in NYC. Enjoy!
Mark, Jimmy and Squigs get their guitar hero on in Astoria, Queens at this brand new local Brewery; Lagrrrs? State of the Art Nozzles? Meat Pies? Righteous and Amazing!
Mark, Jimmy and Squigs stop out in Astoria, Queens to see what Spiro & co. are doing with this age-old process. Around every corner, something tasty, interesting and awesome. Enjoy!
Mark, Jimmy, and Squigs are back in ASTORIA (Why leave Astoria, anyway?) at the Queens Kickshaw! In a very short period, this haven of craft liquids and solids has made an indelible imprint on this evolving neighborhood. Cold Brewed coffee, craft beers, Kombucha Ale, gruyere grilled cheeses... sounds like heaven to us. What is a Kickshaw, anyway? Join us and find out. Cheers!
Hey, what's up G's!? Stat Guy here... now I know that the Historian Guy kinda has the monopoly on places in Astoria around here, but I've also been kicking around there a bit these days. So I wanted to share this place, Fatty's Cafe, with Happy Hour Nation, (just in case you didn't already know :)
Up on Ditmars and Crescent, the last stop on the N, Q train if you're coming from Manhattan, the place is just a wonderful, laid back, neighborhood joint. Perfect for locals to amble toward for really tasty food, dynamite Mojitos or Margaritas, play chess at the bar, or even just to browse some world-class artwork (as they treat their wall space as a kind of revolving gallery for local artists.) Or as in my case today, it's also a sweet place to just drop in to see some friends and drink a few Dead Guy Ales (From the good people up at Rogue in Oregon! Mmmm.) Really tho, the place is cool. They should call it PHATTy's! They even have outside seating in the back garden for beautiful days like today... I've always had a blast here, so check it out if you're ever in the hood. Now, it's off to Astoria Park for some FriZz-Bee! Yea, life is Good! Happy Holiday Weekend, folks. Live it up! Stat Guy OUT!
The Guys make a stop off at this VERY cool new place on 21st street in Astoria, New York. Vesta is generating buzz on many levels, from getting reviews listing the food as some of the best in the borough to serving local wines... ON TAP. Oh, and they get much of their produce from a 1 acre Organic roof garden in Queens, and feature a veggie farm stand on saturdays! How cool is that? Enjoy!
