Let the fireworks begin!



If you aren't yet convinced, be assured that we at The Q are huge fans of the 4th of July! We're planning on doing things a little differently this year.

We'll be open from 4PM - 9PM, and we plan on making full use of our back alley to enjoy some very urban celebrations of the birth of this fine country.

With sprinklers, a kiddie pool, a watermelon eating contest, drinks and grilling we've really stepped up our game this year! Come on by if you're around and hang out with us while listening to our neighbors set off illegal fireworks.

Even if you can't make it, we wish you and your families a fantastic 4th of July and we hope to see you soon!

Jackson Heights Jazz Festival on Sunday!

But first, soccer!

Soccer lovers, prepare to rip your shirt off and mime drinking a cup of tea while rocking an invisible baby to sleep and shushing a raucous crowd, we have some great games lined up for Sunday!

At 11AM we will show the Women's World Cup when Team USA play The Netherlands in the final! This should be an excellent match between two great teams.

Then at 3PM it's the final of the Copa America! Underdogs Peru will play against Brazil in what we hope is a thrilling, spirited game.

Let the Jazz Festival Begin


We're very proud to be one of the venues for this year's Jackson Heights Jazz Festival. You can check out the entire lineup over here.

This Sunday we'll welcome the excellent George Papageorge Trio at 8PM after the performance in Travers Park at 6PM by the Brian Charette Trio.

The following Sunday we're going to host the Ed Fuqua Trio which is always a special treat.

If you're thinking of coming you should make a reservation!



Baseball All Star Game

Tuesday at 7:30

When three Mets players are in the All Star Game, you know they're doing something right and it should be a very fun game to watch, so we will be showing it! Come join us for some fancy ballpark food and cheer on your favorite players!

$10 Pizza Today For Mets Fans!

Come Watch the All Star Game with us at 7:30!

Mets fans rejoice! After Pete Alonso's win yesterday in the Home Rub Derby he'll be fired up to play alongside his colleagues Jacob DeGrom and Jeff McNeil tonight at 7:30, and we are so fired up about this that we're going to be offering $10 pizzas all night to anyone wearing their Mets gear, so come by and say hi to us tonight!
 
You could also make a reservation to make sure you get a good seat.

Wino Wednesday Continues!

Everyone loves a cool glass of white or rosé on a summer day, but have you thought about switching it up with a chilled summer red wine?  Cooler temperatures accentuate the wine’s natural fruit profile while tamping down the alcohol.  It's perfect with pizza or grilled meats or just to quaff with some small nibbles, all while keeping your cool.
 
We’re pouring a lovely Dolcetto with a nice chill this summer at The Queensboro and on Wino Wednesday this week, we’ll be offering it will a cool price tag as well - $6 a glass all night long. Its a chance to try something new and maybe put a different tint on your summer wine drinking.


 
Cheers!

Jazz on Thursday and Sunday!

We are looking forward to more excellent jazz this week with two big events!
 
First, consider joining us on Thursday at 8PM to check out the Jon Menges Trio bring it with some fantastic jazz tunes for a couple of sets. We're delighted to have them play with us again.
 
Then, on Sunday, we will close out the Jackson Heights Jazz Festival with a performance by The Ed Fuqua Trio at 8PM! We could say that it's worth coming for this just to see Ed's gorgeous custom bass but that wouldn't do justice to the talent that he brings to the table.
 
This is some of the finest jazz around folks, we highly recommend going to the Vanessa Rubin Travers Park concert at 6PM for a taste of some outdoors music before coming to The Q to finish the festival off with a bang. You won't be disappointed, but if you don't make a reservation you might, so why not go ahead and do that now?

Music, Mezcal and More!


Hello everybody, we hope all is well with you. We have lots of things planned at The Queensboro for this week so let's get into it!

THURSDAY - The Battle Brothers!

Following last Thursday's excellent Queensboro debut of Vinny and the Unknowns, we're rolling with another new crew this coming Thursday, and these guys are also locals.
 
Please come by to see The Battle Brothers Band: James Battle on bass; Jameel Battle guitar and Amit Shamir on drums. They will be playing Soul/Jazz Classics and tasteful originals.
 
If you're coming, you should book a table!

FRIDAY - Opening at 3PM - and The Cold Club of Queens.
(and Mezcal!)


Friday is going to be special! First of all, we'll be opening at 3PM to help teachers (and anybody else who cares to join them) relax after their first grueling week back at work.
 
Then, starting at 5, our Del Maguey mezcal rep will be at The Q and the first dozen or so people who want it will be able to sample some of their delicious and uniquely artisanal mezcal!
 
After that at 8:30 we are excited to welcome back the lovable rascals from The Cold Club of Queens! We're always happy to have these guys play and we hope many people come to hear their wonderful Django-inspired jazz!
 
You might consider making a reservation!

Beer and Cheese!


On Tuesday September 24th, at 8:30PM Cheese doesn’t have to Stand Alone!

Hello cheese lovers! We’re always excited when cool new neighbors move in, so we were really thrilled when Steffen Kenney opened Stand Alone Cheese in Jackson Heights.

This gem of a store not only sells some amazing cheeses, but also has bread (some of it from the baked-at-the-Q Little Wildbranch Bakery), charcuterie, ice cream, exotic canned goods, a friendly approachable attitude and much more!

We want you to meet these guys, so we’re hosting a Stand Alone Cheese Night here at The Queensboro.

On Tuesday, September 24th at 8:30pm, Steffen will lead a curated tasting of fine cheeses from his shop, each paired with some of our fresh, delicious beers. Five cheeses, five beers and lots of wisdom, all for $25 per person. 

Seating will be limited so we strongly recommend booking in advance.

Leave us a note saying "CHEESE!" in the reservation so we know you're booking a space for this event.

If you can’t make the tasting, fear not! We’ll be offering a Stand Alone Cheese plate the rest of the week (or until it sells out).  What’s more all of the cheeses from the tasting are available for purchase at Stand Alone Cheese, 79-07 37th Avenue.

A little more about Steffen:

Steffen's journey into the world of cheese began 20 years ago, as a student in Philadelphia. A part-time job at Downtown Cheese in the Reading Terminal Market turned into a full-time passion. Steffen was drawn to the diversity of cheeses from around the world and the stories behind them. He enjoyed how discussions about cheese often transformed into conversations about life.

After moving to New York, Steffen work at local institutions Ideal Cheese and Artisanal Fromagerie and Bistro. He also guided food and beer tours throughout the city. Steffen dreamed of opening a shop in Queens to provide quality cheese and specialty products to an underserved part of the city.

When his friends at Table Wine  encouraged him to check out 37th Avenue, Steffen knew that he had found just the place: an amazing community hungry for cheese, and on June 1, 2019, he opened Stand Alone Cheese in Jackson Heights.[/size]

Dear friends and neighbors, we have so many things happening at The Queensboro, we're bursting with excitement!

First of all, we hope that everyone is enjoying Annabelle Popa's gorgeous art that is on the walls of the restaurant. Our eternal gratitude to Helen Quinn for allowing us to feature her work for so long. If you're interested in purchasing any of Annabelle's work, or one of her prints check out her website and see what strikes your fancy!

Our Beer & Cheese tasting with Stand Alone Cheese is taking place tomorrow, and - as careful readers of our messages will know - it is sold out! This encouraged us to add another night of Beer & Cheese on the following Tuesday!

So join us on Tuesday October 1st at 8:30PM to check out 5 beers and 5 cheeses with Steffen from Stand Alone Cheese. When you make a reservation, be sure to say "CHEESE" in the notes to let us know you're booking for this event!

Ed Fuqua & Jim Hershman Perform on Thursday



We've said it before and it bears repeating - when Ed and Jim play together, musical sparks fly! These guys are some of the best around, we consider ourselves to be lucky that they play at The Q, if you haven't heard them before you really owe it to yourself to come and check them out.

Sadly, Ed is leaving us for a land that isn't accessible by subway (somewhere in the blurry expanses west of the Hudson) and this might be his final performance at The Q! We hope to sneak in one more show but we can't make any promises so please come by and say hi and hear him and Jim play, it truly is some of the most beautiful music around.

Reward yourself and make a reservation.

Oktoberfest!



Everybody knows that Oktoberfest starts in September (actually we had no idea!), so last weekend we were more than ready to start serving liter steins of a gorgeous Oktoberfest beer from Jack's Abbey, and some of the most delicious bratwurst in pretzel bread with sauerkraut, double mustard, and Swiss cheese we've ever tasted! Oktoberfest continues for another 2 weeks or so, which gives you plenty of time to swing by and enjoy some proper German delights! The mug in the above photograph is about a foot tall, which gives you an idea of the size of the dish next to it. Not insubstantial!


Irishfest!

Do you remember Saint Patrick's day weekend? We often don't, but this year we do because we were lucky enough to have The Prodigals perform at The Q, and they were so much fun we're excited to welcome them back this coming weekend!

On Saturday at 3:30PM get ready to rock out to some awesome Irish music at The Queensboro. They've been described as "What the Ramones might have sounded like if they’d taken traditional Irish music as their starting point" - which sounds pretty cool to us!


See you at The Q!

Irish Rock Concert!



This weekend we're having a special music-on-a-Saturday sort of event because we're lucky enough to have The Prodigals perform at The Q! They played for Saint Patrick's Day this year and they were a lot of fun, everyone loved them and we've had a lot of requests to get them to come back, so we jumped at the chance to book them again.

This Saturday get ready to rock out to some awesome Irish music at The Queensboro. It's very family-friendly so feel free to bring your kids and hang out in the afternoon, we'll be serving food at 4 and the drinks will certainly be flowing!

They've been described as "What the Ramones might have sounded like if they’d taken traditional Irish music as their starting point", which is very high praise in this neck of the woods!

Board Game Night at The Q!

This is super exciting! We're partnering with Shenanigans NY for a weekly Board Gaming session at The Queensboro, starting tomorrow, Wednesday the 16th of October at 6:30.

We're turning the restaurant into a board gamer's paradise! About 50 games will be available to play - from the classics, to some of the newest games just released from the best designers on Kickstarter.

We'll have experts on hand to guide you through the rules of any game you might be unfamiliar with or match you up with potential partners. There will be discounts and raffles and it's a fantastic opportunity to make some new friends, bond with some old ones, or simply bring the whole family and enjoy an evening of gaming and good food.

You can register for this event right here!
