Roosevelt Avenue is a completely different animal when the sun goes down. Nearing midnight, out come arepas, chuzos and transvestites. We’re going to explore everything Roosevelt Avenue has to offer without stepping a foot off the pavement.
Start: Saturday, Aug 21st, 10pm
at the Manuel De Dios Unanue Triangle (83rd & Roosevelt)
Last month was the 2nd annual Roosevelt Avenue Street Food Crawl, we had around 100 people scouring the neighborhood from Jackson Heights and Elmhurst to Corona. This crawl takes a slightly different route, starting at the plaza at 83rd Street and Roosevelt and going west stopping at arepa ladies, taco trucks, chuzo stands, halal carts, gay bars and more before finally settling at an Irish pub in Woodside.
I will provide a language guide and a point of interest game board to guide people on their way. The game is still in development, so your suggestions are appreciated.
Starting at 10pm, you can warm up for the crawl at the ultra-cool Colombian ex-pat bar, Terraza 7 Train Cafe on Gleane Street, Meson Asturias (83rd St) where they should be having a Flamenco show, or the taco cart Mexico Linda at Gleane and Roosevelt. I will start walking at 11pm, but you can start when you get the gusto.
You know how we do it – no cost other than food. Rag tag group of Queensites and out-of-towners exploring the neighborhood, learning the cultures and eating the best food in the city.
Save the date – August 21st, 10pm.
