The Czech and Slovak Festival is Coming this Weekend
For those of you who know me personally, you can vouch for how proud I am of my Slovak heritage. Although I've lived here most of my life, I stay very true to my roots and visit my relatives in my Mother country at least once a year.
A big part of my culture is of course the food, and that's why I love frequenting the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden. Although this place has changed a lot since I first started living in Astoria, it's still wonderful and nostalgic to me. It's exciting to me when they throw their annual Czech & Slovak festival, but unfortunately this year, I won't be in town to enjoy it. But hopefully you will be, and I can live vicariously through you guys. Here are the deets:
Annual Czech & Slovak Festival at Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden
