Oyster Happy Hour in Astoria
Just last week, I spotted Thrillist's extensive list of 64 Amazing Oyster Happy Hours in NYC, which included some options in Astoria and LIC. Although the choices were quite limited, I was happy to see both neighborhoods mentioned. Posting the article on the We Heart Astoria Facebook page, I also noticed a few suggestions from people in the neighborhood that were omitted in this list and that I wanted to mention here. What other Oyster Happy Hours do you enjoy nearby?
