PLAN DATE: TUES / DEC. 18
The Shady Lady is a cozy urban eatery located in Astoria with an expansive menu of seemingly endless offerings—seriously, there’s a huge range of options for any type of eater. Share a handful of different tapas like the pork belly croquettes, grilled octopus, or disco duck fries, and equally delicious entrees. We especially love the zucchini linguini.
With a name like Judy & Punch, you know you’re in for a good time. This Astoria cocktail bar serves indie beers and innovative craft cocktails, all at a reasonable price starting at $10. Sip on “giggle juice” made with Stolichnaya, St. Germain elderflower, pear puree, pineapple, and fresh lemon juice or go for something more wintry like the hot spiced apple cider with nutmeg to warm you up from head to toe.
Fun, Lively, Welcoming
