Burgers, beers, and fall fashion.

beers burgers and perennial fall fashion from Urban Outfitters

The Ditmars location of my most favorite burger joint in the whole wide world turns 1 year old today. It totally gave me that “whoa that feels like just yesterday” feeling and I pulled up these ancient photos from LAST YEAR when the hand-holding-man-friend and I went skipping to their opening. Bareburger is a local restaurant that serves grass fed organic burgers and things, with weird meats like ostrich, elk, bison, and the like. When they opened their original location at 31st Avenue it was like a revolution. Astoria is a wonderful place, but when I first moved here (5 years ago) if you wanted anything aside from a gyro or feta or pasta, you kinda had to leave the boro. Sorry non-locals but this post is Astoria centric, but I’m sure you’ll appreciate the “neighborhoodiness” chat.

I’m not going to give you a Bareburger history lesson, but from first bite I was hooked. When they started serving fried pickles it was a forever kind of love, then they talked about opening the Ditmars location, and got their liquor license, now since moving over to “this side of the tracks” I’ll still go to the original but only to meet friends that live down there.

The Ditmars stop is my jam, I’ll see you tonight. Probably in this same outfit as above. Isn’t it funny? These photos are from a year ago and I feel like I still wear each and every piece almost every day. I guess thats either a sign that I only buy things that I will perennially love, or that I haven’t been able to afford shopping since 2011. The entire outfit appears to be from Urban Outfitters, I guess because they have good sales. The necklace is tru.che, and I still to this day love it like it was new.

Have a great day everyone. If you’re local check out the specials (can we say $6 pitcher o’ beer?) and see you round the ‘hood, I’ll be the one in a food coma from eating an entire fries and rings combo.

Totally agree with you on Bareburger. My first experience was the 31st Avenue one. And it was all by accident. We wanted to go to Brick. But they did not open until 12. Lucky for us Bareburger was already open. I was so impressed, I actually wrote a raving review on Yelp. I think the review is still around. I was so happy to find out that they opened this one 31st Street. BTW, I went last night for a quick bite. So impressed that they can make my burger exactly as I asked for…and Blue Point on tap hits the spot. Oh did you know that there’s a Barebuger lunch time radio station in Pandora? Makes work tolerable….
