What a turnout for the Anniversary Group! Another record!
The next JHF Group will take place on Nov. 15th
The choices for November are as follows:
Louie’s Pizzeria on Baxter. This is the newest pizzeria for the neighborhood. Many good things have been said about it so far, and the possibility of great pizza in the area is a godsend. I’m sure Louie would put on a good show for us. I can verify that it is, in fact, good pizza.
Friend’s House Restaurant (Korean)
64-16 Roosevelt Ave.
This is a new Korean Restaurant in Woodside, which looks to be more centered to comfort foods than other Korean in the neighborhood. Very exciting stuff.
As always, send me your vote for where you want to go. I will announce the winner Nov 9th.
In related news… We are getting serious about food: I’m officially announcing The Ambassador Program. Whereas the Jackson Heights Food Group is about the neighborhood, the Ambassador Program is about the food. This new adventure may take place anywhere in the city limits and occur at anytime – whatever it takes. Here, our group will have a guide to order for the table and discuss what we are eating and why we are eating it. This allows us diners to let go, eat well, and expand our boundaries for the city, the world and our palates. Selfishly, there are a lot of cultures I don’t know about, and this seems like an efficient way to learn more and have a good time. I can’t think of a better way of doing this.
I am looking for Ambassadors. As an Ambassador, you will have complete control over a magnificent feast of your expertise, all paid for by the group of attendees. If this sounds like your idea of fun, fill out the form on the Ambassador’s page and send it to me. And if you would like to be a part of the Ambassadors Program, send me your email address and I will put you on the list.
