The Thirsty Koala x I Love You Open Mic at Q.E.D.



Tonight’s date is about koalas and comedy, all going down in Astoria—starting with an Australian dinner. The Thirsty Koala brings the flavor of the Outback to Queens with seasonal menus and indigenous ingredients in items like the Grilled Wattle Seed and Herb Crusted Australian Lamb Lollies. There’s a wide range of options to choose from with healthy, plant-based dishes like the Akudjura Earth Chili Bowl to Aussie grilled hanger steak. Be sure to peek their wine list that has a wide selection of whites and reds from Australia and New Zealand. (You may want a little liquid courage for the next part of the night.)

After dinner, head over the women-owned and operated event space, Q.E.D. for the I Love You Open Mic night. This event is a fun and supportive weekly tradition that welcomes comics of any level. You can sign up for your turn on the mic or sit back and share some laughs. Beer, wine, soda, and snacks are available for purchase, and help keep the event free, so consider doing your part to support. It’s good vibes only here, so be ready to cheer on those brave souls testing out their material in front of a new crowd.
