On Christmas Day, as I’m getting wondering around Manhattan to buy the ticket from Eventbrite sponsored from Asian in New York for a New Years Eve Party in Chinatown. Without hesitation, I immediately catch two trains coming on good timing which is the (N) and the (7) train. Our destination is Woodside at the La Flor Restaurant at 53rd Street and Roosevelt Avenue.
I usually wanted to stop following Mika Mimura for the 2012 year along with Banda Magda, but I decided to take a shot since I have my checks cashed. Mika mentioned that she done this every Tuesday on her Facebook update just like my Japanese kawaii tap dancing friend performs at the Cotton Club every Monday. Mika hasn’t been seen in a while since summer 2012. In our older blogs before Insectduel’s Game Corner, we mentioned something that shouldn’t be discussed on Banda Magda’s events and we decided to reduce a few sentences.
Anyway as I went in to the La Flor Restaurant at Woodside Queens, I’ve gotten a table. I have to say that it is a friendly place to visit. Unlike Domaine Wine Bar in Long Island City, there is nothing but trouble and we need to file a complaint against the venue very soon. We have been kicked out during the 2011 year when performances are held. La Flor sells all types of drinks and also have healthier foods so I chose the spinach. Also, I think they do not usually hold the performances like other restaurant venues but these 2 female Japanese musicians Mika Mimura and Sumie Kaneko are playing for the hungry customers. It’s been started since December 11th. Most musicians do have a tip jar (or basket) so tipping them would be appreciated.
I have been staying at La Flor for both sets but I usually wanted to run off but I didn’t want to. However, it was great listening for both Mika and Sumie’s works. I also had discussion. When the second set is done, I threw $20 on both CD’s which costs $10 each and both of them signed it. La Flor is too polite for servers rather than the mean bartender at Domaine Wine Bar.
I wonder if it will be the same on New Years Tuesday at La Flor before heading to MAGFest in Washington January 3rd, but I probably won’t go there every week unless it comes to me.
