We are just 11 days away from the next Chowhound Social which will take place at the Bohemian Beer Garden in Astoria. It will take place from 1-5 on Sunday, July 21st.
The Bohemian Beer garden is located at 29-19 24th Ave., between 29th Street and 31st. It is a 5 minute walk from the N train Astoria Blvd stop.
ALL hounds are invited! Lurkers, veteran posters, friends of posters. EVERYONE!
First and foremost, we'll be there to eat and meet. The potluck social we had a few months ago in Manhattan was a huge success. About 100 'hounds showed up and just about everyone brought food. There was a spectacular display of probably some of the best food that could be found in the TriState area. We invite people to do the same this time, although bringing food is not mandatory. If you have any questions about what you should bring, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The only thing we ask is that you don't bring any drinks. The Beer Garden was kind enough to let us hold our event there and so any beverages should be purchased from them.
I'll start to compile the list of what people are bringing and will post it in about a week.
Once again, we also have a posse of Boston 'hounds coming down. Galley Girl will be leading the Boston troops, all of which were a great fun loving bunch.
We've got a lot of very cool things planned for this social. Quite a few hounds have generously donated very cool goods and services that we will be auctioning and raffling off. We're asking all attendees to purchase at least one $5 raffle ticket, however you are welcome to purchase more to increase your chances of winning. (See link below for all the cool stuff we'll have on auction/raffle).
So if you think you'll be coming, please either email me or post what you'll be bringing.
