Sanders Supporters To Host Primary Viewing Party At Katch


April 12, 2016 Staff Report

Astorians who “feel the Bern” will be able to cheer for their candidate at a local primary results viewing party next week.

Bernie Sanders supporters and campaign volunteers will host a New York Primary results viewing party at Katch, located at 31-19 Newtown Ave. The event will kick off at 7:30 p.m. and run until 11:30 p.m. on April 19.

“After you cast your vote, come watch the primary results and hang out with local Bernie supporters in Astoria,” the event page on Sanders’ website states. “We’ll be gathered in the covered courtyard in the back with our own TVs.”

The event can hold up to 100 people, with 44 currently signed up to attend. Those interested in attending can RSVP online here.

Ahead of the April 19 primary, Sanders will host an official campaign rally nearby in Long Island City, at Hunter’s Point South Park.

The rally takes place April 18 at 7 p.m. and is free to the public. Attendees will be able to arrive for the event at 5 p.m. Tickets are not required but those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP.

Meanwhile, local fans of Hillary Clinton can gather at Icon Bar & Club (31-84 33rd St.), which will host “Astoria for Hillary!” tonight at 8 p.m.

The LGBT-centric event will include drink specials, Hillary trivia with prizes, and guest speakers, Melissa Sklarz, campaign surrogate, and Dirk McCall, delegate candidate, according to the Facebook event page.

“Come celebrate with fellow Hillary supporters and learn ways to help get out the vote on Primary Day,” the page states.

Just saying

Dirk Mccall is the biggest hack going. Why is he a delegate? How does a Queens resident get a job in the Bronx Borough Presidents office after he mismanaged every other work environment he was in charge of.

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
