For a Neighborhood-y Experience
Terp Bros Cannabis Dispensary, 36-10 Ditmars Blvd., Astoria; 929-614-3591; terpbrosnyc.com
Nestled among the restaurants on this strip of Ditmars, Terp Bros is the first dispensary to open in Astoria. Walking into the shop, customers are greeted with murals of smokers by Zeehan Wazed and Tommy Kaui Nahulu across from a wall of cartridges and pre-rolls. “I loaded up my bag with New York–founded brands,” says Marni Unger of the nearby Etain Health. “I got pre-rolls from Electraleaf and Good Day Flor, some flower from Hudson Cannabis, and an eighth of Lifted’s Tropicana Cookies — they’re a legacy grower from Queens and the best legal weed I’ve had here.” Also, the selection of cartridges is “banging,” says Queens native and customer Luca P., who bought carts by Heavy Hitters and plugplay. Although Terp Bros just opened in October, it’s already getting involved in the community. “They’re a real neighborhood shop. One of the co-founders, Jeremy, is from Queens,” says Unger. At other local spots, like wine bar Tootles & French or specialty grocer the Bier & Cheese Collective, you may see a Terp Bros poster in the window: Bring in a receipt from the dispensary and those businesses will offer a discount.
