We recently stopped by and enjoyed the Wall-Ortiz Gallery which we had not noticed before. The gallery is currently showcasing an exhibit of the youth ministries photography, videos and writings. It is based on their experiences and perceptions of the Harlem community.
“Through Our Eyes: Youth, Community and the City”
Curated by Anthony Artis and Maria Liu Wong
One of the videos showed young and old volunteering and giving back to the community which was well done.
We met Anthony who is very nice and informative. Drop by and check it out.

We stopped by HFB on Thursday to try the fried chicken after hearing the buzz about it and we were so happy we did. Wow!.. and I’m not kidding.
The chicken was D-licious. Moist, tasty and crispy but not greasy. It was accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes and green beans that snap when you bite into them. Luckily, we managed to score one of the last servings. I had it with my favorite happy hour drink there, the Watermelon Martini which I like on the rocks.
All I could say during my meal to my husband was, ” I’m in heaven”. So see you there next Thursday as I can’t wait to go back for more! =)
