Holidaze? Kick it at The Dog and Duck

Dog and Duck Top PhotoSunday

Looking for a gastropub? The DOG and Duck. 45-20 Skillman Avenue.

You wait at The DOG and DUCK playing the game.

She’s not far. It was your idea to meet at the bar.

You check your phone. You’re starting to think maybe she’s fled.

Just hold on, bro. Chill you’re at The DOG and DUCK. A Sunnyside neighborhood joint. Moonlight hits Skillman Avenue and comes through the gastropub‘s large windows. The room’s warm and cozy though the walls beg for art work.

 

Locals sit at an island near the front window. You hear them talk. You hear them laugh. You got your phone and you’re scrolling Tastoriaqueens. com

Welcome the night while looking out on Skillman Avenue at The DOG and DUCK.

The door opens. It’s not her. You wonder–’tis the season when you’re heart gets broken?

So, what are you going to do?

Thirteen beers on tap. A selection of Red Wine, White Wine, Sparkling Wines and Andy’s Fall and Winter Cocktails with names like Figa, 46th Street Makers and Hair of the DOG (&DUCK). Isn’t that enough to keep you happy if you come down with a case of holidaze?

Or, maybe you want to choose from the DOG and DUCK’S full menu which includes Bar Snacks, appetizers, selections from the grill, from the sea, braised, roasted and stewed selections, rice, pasta and side dishes.

The barkeep comes over. You’re about to ask for a 46th Street Maker when your phone lights up. You get a text. She’s not far.

Your cocktail arrives. ( Makers 46, English Marmalade, Lemon, Vanilla, Sweet Vermouth, Angostura’s Bitters). Two sips later someone taps you on your shoulder.

Oh yeah, oh yeah.

Ain’t no holidaze here, Jack.

    Another entertainingly witty, yet informative piece. Thanks! I’m interested in going here because of the drink with the vermouth you mentioned. As I was recently on vacation in Barcelona Spain where vermouth was poured from barrels into tiny glasses. It was sweet but not sicky and quite charming. So I’m in search of vermouth creations now.

    Locallooking: Isn’t it all about wit and entertaining information?…Barcelona is one of my favorite cities. Went to the bar where Hemmingway drank. Pressed my nose against the glass. Hopefully his magic wore off on my writing,too. …Thanks for the comment. Feel free to circulate the Post. #kidfromqueens.
