I got a gift card for this Pastry shop I have never heard of but my girlfriend knows I love sweets and I love to check out new places. So this was a two in one for me. I went there and chose the cannolis. Always heard of them but I have never gotten to try them. They are now in my top ten favourite pastries, I will definitely be going back for more whenever I'm in that area again. Its called La Guli a family-owned pastry shop, definitely worth the visit

So, I went to the Bohemian Hall beer garden with a few friends because I have never heard of this being a thing before. Anyways, I realized the history behind it was really interesting and I wanted to share. In the late 1800’s many Czech and Slovaks emigrated from Austria-Hungary, and made their way to America. Many found a home in Astoria, Queens. In 1892, the Bohemian Citizens’ Benevolent Society was formed, named after the medieval Kingdom of Bohemia. (Modern-day Bohemia forms the Western part of the Czech Republic.) Eighteen years later, in 1910, the Society began raising funds for a home for the Czech people in the local community. It was to be a haven where the traditions of the homeland were to be maintained. Two adjacent lots, part of a farm, were purchased and on October 1, 1910 the cornerstone of Bohemian Hall was laid. Bohemian Hall was built in three sections. What is today the entrance was the first Hall, but it soon became obvious more space was needed. Bohemian-Hall-Sokol-gymThe Sokol Gym or Main Hall was added, and in 1919 the outside Bar and Park were finished – just in time for prohibition which banned the sale of alcoholic beverages in America for over a decade! But Bohemian Hall survived. At one time, over 800 beer gardens were in New York City – three in Astoria alone. Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden survives to carry the proud tradition into the new millennium!
