Sure, we all love those sun-drenched afternoons spent dancing at MoMA PS1, and our hearts still pang for those overstimulating views of 5 Pointz, but there’s plenty more to love in Long Island City, especially on the food front, and soon it'll be your chance to taste it all. On Tuesday, June 3, take the 7 train to Vernon Blvd–Jackson Ave and head to the Gantry Plaza State Park for an evening highlighting the best of two boroughs: stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, and a party that’s all about Queens.

For its ninth year, Taste of LIC’s restaurant lineup features 50 nabe eateries, including tried-and-true vets like Alewife Queens, M. Wells Dinette, Casa Enrique, Sweetleaf and Testaccio, plus exciting newcomers like 51st Bakery and Café, 1682 French Louisiana, Beyond Kombucha, White Coffee Corporation, Hibino LIC, Mar’s, Blend on the Water and COFFEED. One hundred local businesses will donate prizes for the silent auction and raffles, including trips from JetBlue and gift certificates to favorite LIC spots.

On the entertainment front, expect a performance by Woodside and Sunnyside Girl Scouts. All proceeds support the 2014–15 dance, theater and music season at the Chocolate Factory Theater, an LIC arts company.
