Some End Of The Year Thoughts To Consider For The New Year, 2014

IDL TIFF file

People say never talk about religion (or politics) because everyone has their own beliefs and opinions and it always ends in an argument.  Keeping this in mind, here are some end of the year thoughts on all religions to consider coming into the New Year, 2014:

Catholicism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Confucianism, Buddhism, Seventh-Day Adventist, Mormonism, however you were raised or whatever religion you have chosen as a vehicle to help you on your path to a higher place, should be respected and not judged.  So much of religion has to do with location and where we were born into the world, geographically.  This is sometimes lost in the bigger picture of things and definitely complicates our political differences.

Lets try together globally in 2014 to learn more about one another around the world and accept each other for who we are as well as our differences.  There are similarities with many religions and beliefs that people would be surprised to learn about.  It is really quite interesting and empowering to learn about other cultures, traditions and languages.  More and more our society is becoming multi cultural and globally in tune.  As we continue to grow and understand we can learn that our differences are sometimes more similar than we thought.

The Legendary Minton’s Supper Club to open again in Harlem

A return to elegance in the historic village of Harlem.  The day has come for Minton’s to open officially to the public Monday, October 21st.  The Cecil next door and jointly owned just opened last month with a bang and hasn’t stopped since.  Already considered in a league of it’s own in this area.  See our previous write up on The Cecil Restaurant in Harlem (Review).

We look forward to celebrating the reopening of Minton’s with such a past history of Harlem’s jazz greats when it was once called Minton’s Playhouse.  This venue will require that men wear jackets.  The attire (dress code) is formal and it will be nice to see women and men fill the room with a diversity of styles while enjoying live jazz music.  A very timely decision to open (reopen) this historic jazz club with Harlem on the pulse now more than ever in the New York scene.

Looking forward to experiencing Minton’s next week.  Dress to impress and come out to enjoy good jazz and what looks like to be great food.  Take a peek at the menu below.

Here are a couple photos of entrees you can expect from the menu.  Looking forward to trying the Rib-Eye steak.  Minton’s MENU.
