Meet Top Authors From NYC and Beyond at This 100-Year-Old Historic Watering Hole
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
Blend not only blends different types of Latin cuisine, but it also blends the atmosphere of an upscale lounge with a fun and relaxed cafe. Colorful art adorns the brick walls, and a mixture of booth and chair seating around white marble tables gives this place a versatile feel so you’re at home whether you’re celebrating with dinner or simply killing a few rounds of cocktails. Speaking of, the frozen margarita, sangria, or a mixture of the two come highly recommended. On the menu is everything from Ropa Vieja to empanadas of every kind, to burgers and burritos. No one, not even vegetarians, will go hungry here.
Feed your mind next by bringing your date to the LIC Reading Series. This event is free thanks to support from the Queens Art Council and brings top authors from Queens and beyond to read their works live, as well as engage in a panel discussion. The talks, which are hosted the second Tuesday of every month, are lively, bringing a wide-ranging crowd. And the books themselves will be on sale at the event, so you can grab a copy if you get inspired. Or you can stimulate the senses by grabbing a drink—the event is held at the LIC Bar, a 100-year-old historic watering hole.
