3-Day Weekend–Keeping It Local

November 9, 2007 at 10:27 am 1 comment

With the kids
Catch the Bee Movie at the Midway (day showtimes 1:15, 2:40, 3:45, 5:00) and then chow down on Restaurant Row (70th Rd)–all of the restaurants there are very kid-friendly.

Hall of Science–there’s no better place in the area to keep the kids moving for a few hours. Especially the playroom, where the kids engage in survival of the fittest to see who can monopolize the conveyer belts.

Atlas Park is having its holiday lighting this Sat. night at 5 p.m. You could kill the better part of an afternoon there, between Borders, California Pizza, and now this.

No kids attached
The fifth annual Queens International Film Festival.

Evelyn Glennie, world famous percussionist (who is deaf), will be at the Kepferberger Center at Queens College. I saw her profiled on 60 Minutes a few years ago. She’s amazing.

Catch a movie at the Kew Gardens Cinema followed by pizza at Dani’s House of Pizza. The pizza is great, the atmosphere festive.

Go to Terrace Realty’s open house for a 1 bedroom at 25 Burns St., right off of Station Square (Sunday 2:30-4:30), and see why the asking price for 750 sq. ft. is $389k.

    Dani’s Pizza

    The debate over the best pizza in FH continues, yet this simple Italian restaurant offers thin-crusted slices and fresh, well-prepared soups such as the Florentine/eggdrop. There’s no pretense here. Sometimes the owner mans the counter herself and looks like she can take on a band of brigands while doling out slices-but that’s part of it’s charm. A neighborhood favorite. Terrific bread and local color.
