Astoria's Q.E.D. isn't your typical bar, think of it more like the proprietor and comedy producer Kambri Crews does, as an "after-school space for grown-ups." During the day, the multi-purpose room serves coffee up front and gives classes on everything from composting to improv, while at night it serves as a venue for comedy and poetry slams. Want to illustrate and imbibe? Come to the drink 'n' draw events. Want to host your own class? Give it a try. The 60-seat space, with beer and wine available, has hosted the likes of comedy heavy-hitters such as Ted Alexandro, Frank Conniff, and a bunch of SNL writers in the narrow room with a stage in the back.
