The BOAST results (warm weather edition) are now published

The BOAST: Best of Astoria results (warm weather edition) have been published on the site! There are some new categories, like best place to eat and drink outdoors, and many of the categories are the same from last time. There are some repeat winners, and there are also a number of new winners, and we’re excited to check out all of them more closely in the next few months. Also, all the photos in the slideshows at the top of the pages for EAT, DRINK, and DO & SEE are new. If you’re curious about winners from the previous survey, just scroll to the bottom of the page.

We want to thank you if you participated in the survey, and if you did a write-up, you may see your writing on the site! If you want to know where to go around a certain area in Astoria, check out the LOCATION page, where there is an interactive map with all the winners, and on that page you can see all the categories they were winners for. Keep checking out the HAPPENING page, which is continuously updated, and if you want to get in touch with us, use the CONTACT page, or send an email to We’d love to hear from you!
