This week on Native, host Briana Kurtz takes us all the way to Queens, NY and welcomes expert blogger of Jeffrey Tastes, and the unofficial Queens Ambassador, Jeff Orlick, to the show. Jeff loves the five boroughs, but is especially interested in Queens and explores its cultures, talks to the people, and eats the food, all with the goal to inspire others to eat fearlessly and explore endlessly as well. Talking to Briana about the great eats of the neighborhood as well as a real account of the Queens atmosphere, the discussion eventually turns to food permits for vendors in the area. At the tail end of the show, Jeff shares information about the Viva la Comida! Festival coming up that highlights the culture of New York City and Queens, combining food with music, art, dancing, entertainment, and much more. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.





“We [Queens] has all these cultural enclaves, which makes it different from many other places in the world.” [3:10]


“That’s why I moved there, because it’s always changing – it’s very interesting.” [7:35]
