So many things happening at The Q!
Dear friends and neighbors, this is a busy week for us as we gear up towards the holiday season. We have lots of events planned for you as we work hard to make The Queensboro a fun, comfortable, and warm destination for you!
Let's quickly break it down, and details on each events will be further down:
Today, Wednesday: Board Gaming night - fun for everyone, come alone, come with a partner or bring the kids, you'll have a great time trying out new games brought to you by the wonderful folks at ShenanigansNY!
Tomorrow, Thursday, we're looking forward to two events that we think will work well together.
First, join your neighbors from the Jackson Heights Climate Committee for a Solar Happy Hour from 6:30-8:30, and then at 8:30 Vinny and the Unknowns will perform once again, bringing us some great blues, rock and classics.
On Friday the Cold Club of Queens will perform around 9PM, so get ready for some beautiful Django-jazz inspired tunes!
We are open for Thanksgiving! Our menus for in-house dining and catering are now online over here.
Sunday will be another Sunday Supper day, we'll get you details about that day's dish very soon but if you want to ensure you get some (whatever it is you know it will be good) you really should make a reservation, and let us know that you want some of that Sunday Supper!
So you're interested in board gaming? Maybe your kids are? Or you want to meet new people, maybe make some friends? Shenanigans NY have partnered with us for several weeks now, and it has been a blast.
They bring a whole pile of really cool games, ranging from some of the classics to new ones that have just been released, and they'll show you how to play them, pair you with other players and generally just make sure that you have a good time.
It's happening every Wednesday from 6:30 to 10:30, and you can just show up and pay $5 to join in, or you can buy a ticket beforehand, and get discounts on your check, and you'll also be entered into a raffle for some cool prizes.

The very cool people at The Queens Climate Project are working hard to make our neighborhood, and borough, better places to live in, so we're hosting them - and you! - for a happy hour on Thursday the 14th. Here is what they have to say:
"Hey Jackson Heights! We all know that NYC needs to get to 100% renewable energy fast, and what better community than ours – the most culturally diverse, politically active, all-around awesome neighborhood in the city -- to lead the way? Transforming how we live will take nothing short of a revolution…and hey, revolutions always go down better with drinks in hand! So come talk sustainability at the JACKSON HEIGHTS GOES GREEN Happy Hours series the 2nd Thursday of every month, 6:30-8:30! (Stay on for the live music afterwards.)
Hope to see you at our kick-off event, JACKSON HEIGHTS GOES SOLAR, on November 14th. Come chat with neighbors who have already installed solar panels, enjoy drink specials, and learn how to make Jackson Heights even greener!"
And then... at 8:30 we'll be enjoying the music of Vinny & The Unknowns who will be playing an eclectic mix of pop, jazz, blues, rock covers and originals and more! You might know Vinny as the sound and stage person behind the JHBG Summer Sundays concerts in Travers Park. We're glad to support another local musician, especially when they are this much fun!
The Cold Club of Queens play some fantastically fun music inspired by Django Reinhardt who hit it big in the 1930's and 40's with his unique style of jazz. These guys below aren't that old but they play (probably) just as well and it's really worth checking them out. It's always a fun night when they perform, and we are looking forward to it!
Sunday Supper! What is it? When is it? How does it work? There are so many questions, but luckily we have many answers.
In short, every Sunday starting at 5PM, feed your family (or 2-3 hungry adults) for around $45. That's not per person, that's it! You'll get a starter and a main course, served family-style and so far we have not disappointed!
This week's menu will be announced soon, so stay tuned. And make a reservation, always make a reservation!
A quick note about Queensboro gift cards... teachers love them!
If you're wondering what to get your child's teacher for the holidays, consider purchasing a Queensboro gift card. There are a lot of teachers that come to The Q, and we have a feeling they'd appreciate something like that. You can buy them and print them up yourself, or come in and buy them in person and we'll print them up for you!
Open on Thanksgiving!
We will open on Thanksgiving, serving dinner from 3PM to 7PM. We will also offer catering services. Our menus for the day are online now, go over here to take a look at them and if you do decide to come to The Q for dinner that day, then go ahead and make a reservation!
Drag Show Date Change - November 30th!
Please note that the Princess Party we had scheduled for the 23rd is now going to take place on the 30th, at the same time - 10PM. Make a reservation as soon as possible, we have a feeling it is going to be a great night!
