Three Astoria bakers make cookies
(almost) too pretty to eat
This spooky season, enjoy a frightening flick with new
friends at an upcoming Astoria Horror Club meetup (page
14). Make sure to pack a snack — perhaps a Halloweenthemed
cookie courtesy of a western Queens baker.
You’ll be amazed by the delicious works of art these three
Astorians make (page 26).
Plus, we’re getting into the swing of the new school
year. Check out some of your neighbors’ back-to-school
photos (page 10), and take your kids to the newly renovated
Charybdis Playground, complete with a state-of-the-art
spray shower (page 22).
Grown up but missing the feeling of a new school year?
Let Astoria Historical Society’s column on the origins
of Gantry Park be your history lesson (page 22). If you
were always more into lunch than classes, but you still
loved reinventing yourself for a new school year, check out
Tantra Lounge’s complete overhaul, both of its look and
its menu (page 21).
