Baseball season has officially returned, and with lots of loyal Mets and Yankees fans amongst us, I thought to put together a helpful Astoria guide of where to catch the games. Hope you enjoy the action in these fun, festive and sports oriented spots.
Katch - Checking out this place during football season, it has plenty of TV screens to catch the games and tasty food and drinks specials. The one I spied recently was for 60 cent wings and a special on red velvet rice crispies treats. 31-19 Newton Ave, Astoria. 718.777.2230
Mad Donkey - Just a few steps away from the 36th Avenue subway stop, the Mad Donkey always has you covered with daily specials on draft beer and their simple but delicious bar food (fried pickles anyone?). Insider tip: You can save a few bucks off your bill if you download the Scoutmob app and use the discount during your visit. 32-07 36th Avenue, Astoria. 718.204.2070
Astoria Brewhouse - Situated in another convenient spot, just off the 30th Avenue subway stop, I like that the Brewhouse offers plenty of good sports watching in a casual comfortable setting. Whether you're a sports fan or not, you'll appreciate its laid back atmosphere and solid food. They also host trivia on Thursdays, which is a lot of fun! 28-50 31st Street, Astoria. 718.728.0050
Dillinger's - Having a positive experience at Dillinger's myself, I always get a positive response when asking Astoria natives about it. They have great food and drinks special virtually every day of the week, with Tuesdays being their 25 cent wing night. Dillinger's creates a perfect atmosphere for watching sports such as baseball. 46-19 30th Avenue, Astoria. 718.956.5601
Studio Square - There's nothing like watching a game on the big screen, and since the weather will hopefully get warmer soon, there will be more opportunities for that at Studio Square. I love perusing their fun drinks specials, such as the current Cherry Pop Special, featuring Sam Adams Cherry Wheat beer. Yum! 35-33 36th Street, Astoria. 718.383.1001
