As is annual tradition of an after-party to LGA Kids Day (http://nycaviation.com/forum/threads/37525-LGA-Kids-Day-2010-Save-the-Date), we will be having a gathering for people at at a bar and grill in Astoria. Go drop the little ones off at home and come back out for a nice meal and a few drinks!

This will be a fun gathering of NYCA members and Twitter followers...a great time to interact with two very active parts of our community.

WHEN:
Saturday, September 25th, 2010.
5:00pm to 10:30pm

WHERE:
Dillingers Pub & Grill
46-19 30th Ave
Astoria, NY 11103
Nearest Transit: 46th St (G, R, V)
Read about them here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/dillingers-pub-and-grill-astoria-2

We will have the space in the back of the place, and there should be a sign to guide you. It is a very laid back place with some good eats, great bar food and beer selection. There will also be an abundance of fellow plane geeks!

Bring whomever you'd like, just remember to drink responsibly. It is very casual, just come by, eat, drink and mingle. Their menu is both yummy and affordable.

PLEASE reply or email me if you plan on attending, as I have to give an approximate head count beforehand. You can also RSVP on the Facebook event page here...

Let me know if you have any questions. See you there!

Rockland County? Another Rockland-ite on the NYC forums? Cool!

I won't be able to make it, sadly, but I'd love to meet more of you guys (maybe this weekend out for VIP week arrivals) as I don't know many of the NYC guys!

Sorry we couldn't make.

We were up in Wesley Hills, Rockland Co for a bday party, one of my best friends I met on the first day of high school, her son turned 5.

ANd Gerard is right , a nice place to live. But that traffic through the Bronx kills it!

Whitestone and Throggs Neck Bridges can be real buzz kills with traffic!!

We had a pretty good time last night. We stayed until about 1030ish and had a total of 12 people, which was expected for this casual gathering. Gave away some really cool posters that I hope the winners enjoyed. thanks for coming out!

I tried to go. Could not find a spot anywhere. Drove around for 25 minutes before heading back down to JFK.

We really enjoyed the event-- sorry we got there late-- traffic. Lucked out and got a space right across the street, but doing that constantly would really bug me!
Thanks Phil for putting it all together!

Phil and others:

It sounds like you all had a great time on Sat. night in Astoria. I wish I could have been there, but the timing just wasn't working out with my schedule. I certainly hope to meet up with some NYCA members at a future event. I really enjoy this aviation website and watching planes in the NY Area.
