Toast 32 years of Queen Village’s New Wave Cafe

In 1985, when brothers Sam and Aly Lynagh took over the space at the corner of Third and Catharine and turned it into New Wave, the Philly bar scene was very different. But their tavern, known for its pool table, outdoor seating, inexpensive housemade food and generally relaxed vibe, is still pretty much the same. To celebrate 32 years, there'll be a free buffet and raffle prizes all night.

Where: New Wave Cafe at 784 S. 3rd St. 19147

When: May 2, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.

How much: Pay as you go
