Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden

As our city sweats through the summer of '07, refreshment and fun can be found in the heart of Astoria. In the last few years, the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden has become the city's new hot spots (in fact, I'm behind the eight ball in talking it up here). I recently hosted an event there with my beloved and, if you ever go, you'll understand why its such a great place to have a party.

The Beer Garden is basically a big open space with lots of picnic tables where you can congregate with family and friends. A pitcher of beer costs about $14 and you can get one (or just a glass of beer) at one of the indoor or outdoor bars. Waitresses circulate and take orders for the fine Czech food they serve (best bet: chicken crepes). There's also a place you can line up for hot dogs and franks.

It's a fun place and people come from all the boroughs to enjoy it. People even bring their kids! Some advice: get there early. If you're going on a Saturday or Sunday, go there before 4 PM. Because it's so popular, there's crowd control. Go there on a Friday and Saturday night, and you'll find a nightclub-like line down the block, and you'll be forced to wait! But it's worth it. The Beer Garden's some of the funnest, least expensive, and unpretentious fun you can have in New York City.
