Malu, LIC's divinely awesome ice cream shop sure has a full roster of delicious activities this week. I was impressed by how much they do for kids, looping in one of my favorite Astoria residents and food educators, Robert McMinn (aka Bucky Buckaw) who raises backyard chickens (in his Astoria apartment actually) and educates people about locally based economies. In other words, pretty important and fascinating stuff. So whether you bring your kiddies to enjoy some ice cream and a good story, or if you go on your own, I think you'll enjoy these activities:
Thursday - Story time for the kids, starting at 4 p.m.
Saturday - Malu Haunted Halloween awards you a free topping if you show up in costume, 3:30 join Bucky Buckaw for some quality live chicken time (fabulous for kids and adults too!)
Sunday - Cookie decorating for the kids (3:00 - 3:30 p.m., 3:45 - 4:15, 4:30 - 5:00 p.m.) The activity will set you back $10 to decorate 2 cookies, and get a kids scoop of ice cream to go with it.
