At LIC Flea

Tea and Milk, which made a name for itself at the LIC Flea selling tea and bubble tea, opened a small eatery at 32-02 34th Avenue last Monday.

The shop offers items such as Peach White tea, Apple Green tea and Taro bubble tea. It also serves cupcakes and quarter pound cookies from City Cakes—as well as breakfast pastries and Vietnamese sandwiches.

Matthew Wong, the co-owner, said the eatery is open from 8 am to 8 pm, seven days a week, and can seat 10 people.

A grand opening event is scheduled to take place April 5th and will include dancers performing the traditional Chinese lion dance, as well as a ceremonial a ribbon cutting. It is scheduled to begin at noon.

All items in the store will be on sale during the grand opening party, which is expected to be about 3 hours long.

“It will serve as more of a greeting to the neighborhood,” Wong said.

Tea and Milk became popular after it began vending at the LIC Flea in 2013 and the Astoria Flea in 2014. The owners then decided to open a shop since they had developed a following.

“We want to be in Astoria because we have built quite a fan base here,” Wong said in December. “They’ve kept coming back to the flea [markets] for us and have supported us.”

Wong said that the Astoria location is attractive since it has a lot of foot traffic.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

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.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
