Eat It: Slow Food BBQ, Lemongrass Snow Cones…

…a new Astoria watering hole from the Wifie & Nell guys, and don’t forget raw bar happy hour at the (Seaport) beach

Mark your calendar: On July 21, a Slow Food BBQ contest comes to Long Island City’s Water Taxi Beach. All-you-can-eat tickets are $35. [more]

East Village sandwichery Num Pang won’t stop at serving its banh mi alternatives – now, they’ve got snow cones “flavored with either pineapple, ginger, and toasted coconut, or lemongrass, lime, and lychee.” (But not with booze – you’ll need to go to 169 Bar for that.) [more]

Wilfie & Nell’s owners have plans for a new bar at 34th Street and 30th Avenue in Astoria – which, it must be said, could use a new bar. [more]

And speaking of Water Taxi Beach (the other one, at South Street Seaport) today’s perfect weather means you should be skipping out early for the 50-cent raw bar (oysters, clams, shrimp) and ridiculously cheap $3-6 cocktails. [more]
