More than 700 teachers are expected to celebrate the last day of school at Studio Square’s Teacher Appreciation Party on Wednesday afternoon.
The mammoth event and entertainment complex at 35-33 36th St. has been a happy hour headquarters for area teachers all year.
“Every Friday we’ve been a headquarters for them,” said Jennifer Barker, a spokeswoman for Studio Square. Teachers with identification have received 50% off food and drink on Friday afternoons. The special has become increasingly popular given the area’s multitude of schools.
Wednesday’s party will cost $35 for an open bar featuring beer, wine and sangria. Each attendee receives a voucher for a full meal at Studio Square’s Garden Grill. The event is open to the public, not just teachers.
“We had a great turnout last year,” Barker said. “It will be even bigger this year.” The party runs from 3-7pm at Studio Square’s cobblestone beer garden.
