Curated by Jim Drain, Paul Chan, Jeff Koons, Mario Grubisic, Paola Pivi, Gelatin, Simon Martin, and Roberto Cuoghi, Pig is an exhibition described as “a colourful chaos of lovely details” and if it’s anything like its incarnation last year at art basel Miami beach, it’s sure to live up to that description. Being that you’re in Queens anyways, you HAVE to take the 7 train to Sripraphai, one of New York’s top Thai restaurants. What makes it better than most is the fact that the ingredients are fresh, and instead of choosing your entree with a choice of meat, they offer a novel sized menu with pics of every dish, most under $10. Once a heavily Irish neighborhood, Saints and Sinners is one of the best looking Irish bars left. Grab a Guinness at the bar or traditional Irish food. If you can, head over to Baruir’s in Sunnyside for one of the best cups of coffee in Queens.
